Trip in the Woods- Redwine Barrel-Aged Bigfoot

This limited edition of our legendary Bigfoot Barleywine-style Ale was aged in oak barrels formerly used to mature red wine from California's Napa Valley. The result is an astonishingly complex range of flavors, matching the bittersweet caramel-like malt notes of Bigfoot with deep, dark fruit notes from the red wine barrels and a touch of oak character that shines through.

Trip in the Woods - Rye-Barrel-Aged Dunkelweizen

Dunkelweizen beers are the dark, robust, and surly cousins of the German-style hefeweizen. We elevate the traditional Dunkelweizen to the next level with the addition of rye and other specialty malts, building on the rich flavor profile. Our brewers then aged the beer in barrels formerly used to mature rye whiskey. With the first sip, you’ll discover the fruity and spicy nature of the weizen yeast, but the finish is where the rye barrels shine—peppery and intense with a touch of vanilla flavor for a truly unique beer.

Sidecar Orange IPA

Orange peel and fruit-forward hops are a perfect match, so we took what we started, and turned up the volume. This orange-infused IPA is the big brother of our Sidecar Orange Pale, with even more orange and hop flavor. It is crisp, lightly bitter, and heavy with the fruity citrus aromas of sweet orange and hops.

BCAW - Saint Arnold - Dry-Hopped Berliner Weisse

Texas’ Saint Arnold Brewery takes a broad view of beer styles, mastering everything from traditional German-inspired recipes to big experimental creations. Together, we teamed up to brew this dry-hopped Berliner Weisse. Featuring a fruit-forward hop character backed up by a snap of mild tartness, it boasts a flavor that’s complex, compelling and very drinkable.

BFD—Beer for Drinking

There are days when you want a beer—just a beer—that hits all the right spots. Well, this is it. No snifters required, no special occasions, just an unfussy, uncomplicated hoppy golden ale brewed to fit in no matter where it goes. This isn’t beer for collecting, this is beer for drinking.

Southern Gothic Session Pils

Steeped in tradition, yet, ready for anything. That pretty much sums up our Southern Gothic Session Pils. This hop-forward, but light-bodied pilsner is crisp and drinkable—perfect for an afternoon on the porch or a night down at the pub. We left it unfiltered and raw to bring out its com-plexity and to fit right in to nearly any situation.
