This unfiltered dunkelweizen was brewed in our open fermenters to highlight the famous fruit-forward Bavarian yeast character which carries through the layers of rich wheat malt flavor. Alluring aromas of banana and clove make this dark wheat beer a “fall pleasure” to enjoy as the leaves change and temperatures drop here in western North Carolina.
Claim Stake Common
A tribute to the California Common style that originated in the late 1800's Gold Rush era, our version stakes its claim by bringing old and new techniques together for a bold, yet balanced beer. After three days of open fermentation, we dry-hop this warm-fermented lager with fresh whole-cone hops in a closed tank to maximize the hop aromas. The result is a copper hued beer with toasty malt notes and delightful hop character from the use of Bravo, Northern Brewer, Cascade, Centennial, and Sterling.
This beer was our first collaboration with the Asheville brewing community after announcing our East Coast expansion in 2012. It is a dry-hopped red wheatwine with inviting aromas of pine, tangerine, and grapefruit from a bold blend of Citra, Simcoe, Comet, Strata, and Nelson Sauvin hops. Brewed with 50% wheat and a touch of caramel malts, expect leathery, candy-like malt notes that balance the intense, sticky hop flavors. A perfect beer for sipping around the firepit in autumn, it’s our tribute to the Old North State and its amazing brewing culture. We appreciate you North Carolina!
Barrel-Aged Maltiple Personalities
Brewed in Mills River during our annual Employee Beer Camp, this brown ale features nine varieties of specialty malt that bring out notes of dark chocolate, toffee, and caramel. This complex malt profile balances out the heat from native Carolina Reaper peppers, which we added to the beer after aging in freshly-emptied Kentucky bourbon barrels for one year.
Pub Pale Ale
Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic.
We've partnered with Bavaria's Weihenstephan, the world's oldest brewery, for this American take on the classic German Oktoberfest. A malt backbone is balanced by subtle hop character in this crisp, clean, and drinkable crowd-pleaser-- nothing captures the spirit of celebration like a beer among friends.
