BCAW - Boneyard - West Coast DIPA

“We just love brewing hoppy beers” is the way Oregon’s IPA masters at Boneyard Beer kicked off our collaboration talks. Well, as it turns out we do, too, so we went all out on this intensely hop-heavy West Coast Double IPA. It’s bright golden, crisp and brimming with intense citrus and herbal hop flavor, just how we like ‘em.

BCAW - Avery Brewing Co. - Dry-Hopped Barleywine-Style

Colorado’s Avery Brewing Co. and Sierra Nevada both make American-style barleywines verging on the hop extreme. For this collaboration—dubbed “Big Hog” as an homage to the two beers that inspired it— we recreated both barleywine recipes and then blended the beers into a new hop-heavy creation. It features rich, bittersweet malt character with notes of caramel and toffee balanced against a massive wall of hop flavor and is bottle conditioned for longevity.

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.

Barrel-Aged Madeira Quad with Cherries

This very limited beer is a blend of two vintages of our Ovila Quad—one straight Belgian-style ale and the other with tart cherries. Additional layers of complexity are achieved through aging in oak barrels used to mature Madeira, the fortified wine hailing from the Portuguese island of the same name. The result is a decadent and flavorful blend of cocoa, fig, cherry and raisin notes with hints of wood, caramel, and burnt sugar flavors from barrel aging.

A nitrogenated beer. Our take on the creamy stouts of Ireland.

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.
