BCAW - Garage Project - Campout Porter

In honor of Beer Camp, our friends at New Zealand’s Garage Project brewery wanted to carry the camping theme straight through to the flavor of our beer. Featuring a unique malt smoked over Manuka wood, rare Manuka honey and vanilla beans, this robust porter has sweet notes reminiscent of marshmallows toasted over a campfire.

BCAW - Kiuchi Brewery - White IPA with Yuzu

Japan’s Kiuchi Brewery, makers of the Hitachino Nest beers, have an elegant take on classic beer styles with a uniquely Japanese influence. They suggested adding yuzu—an Asian citrus fruit—to a hazy white IPA and we jumped at the chance. What emerged is a hoppy yet refined version of the style with a bright citrus flavor and a spicy finish.

BCAW - The Bruery - Raspberry Sundae Ale

The Bruery in Orange County is famous for its experimental, Belgian-style and barrel-aged beers, and this release fits nicely in their wheelhouse. Inspired by the flavors of an ice cream sundae, this rich blonde ale features notes of chocolate, vanilla and raspberry, with lactose added for extra creaminess. Now you can have your dessert and drink it, too.

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.
