OUR BEERS

TROUBLE #6

Our new interpretation of a traditional farmhouse ale, Trouble #6 is brewed with four cereals, barley, wheat, rye and oats, for a subtle and intriguing malt complexity. Alsatian hops add a spicy, earthy hop character, with light notes of lemon. Effervescent and dry.

 

MISSION PALE ALE

A session pale ale by design, this recipe commemorates the first time we brewed together, way back in February of ’05 on Mission St. in San Francisco. Balanced and round with mild bitterness, this pale presents a distinct and unique fruitiness from the hops, with notes of mango, orange, and pineapple. 

 

INDIGO IPA

A classic American style India Pale Ale — big and hoppy, yet nicely drinkable. We select four varieties of our favorite hops to present a big, dank and earthy aroma, juicy fruit on the palate, a subtle background of tropical fruit, and a clean, moderated bitterness. Balanced and round, with a moderate malt body. 

 

RICOCHET

A hoppy amber ale, Ricochet combines a delicate pine,resin, and orange hop character with toasty and fruity malts. The beer presents itself with light to medium body and finishes slightly bitter. A special beer for every day.

MONK BROWN ALE

Our twist on the under-appreciated brown ale style. To this smooth dark ale, thanks to the generous addition of oats, we combine a variety of French-kilned malts to impart a subtle malt complexity of roasted, toasted, and chocolate flavors. Finishes dry.

OUR SEASONALS

CLEM’S SUMMER WHEAT

Clem’s summer wheat  is our first seasonal and will be available over July and August. The Mosaic hop gives this refreshing summer beer a strong fruity character, between white peaches and passionfruit.

It is available in June, July and August.

BRUMAIRE ET FRIMAIRE

Our fall seasonal is brewed with pumpkins, which are lightly roasted and added to the mash. The pumpkin adds fermentable sugars, subtle earthy aromas, and a smooth mouthfeel.

Brumaire et Frimaire pours a rich amber and exhibits subtle aromas and flavors of unrefined sugar and light toast, with notes of earthy spices, licorice, and vanilla. Finishes dry.

It is available from mid October to mid December.

MAKKURO EXTRA PORTER

A riff on the robust porter style, ours is hopped amply with Polaris and has a distinct black malt character. Earthy and eucalypic on the nose, this smooth porter pours pitch black, as the name suggests. Black malt adds a carbonic, lightly smokey finish.

It is available in January and February.

BEAUPRE SPRING PALE

Golden, hoppy pale ale breezily hopped with Cascade and Equinox. Crisp, floral notes of lemon, honeydew, and green pepper. Grassy and drying finish.

It is available in April and May.

OUR ONE-OFFS

STRISSELSPALT

Strisselspalt exhibits a soft floral aroma with notes of earth, spice, and light citrus. Bitterness is extremely low to showcase these smooth Old World hops, which in their fresh form add a green and vegetal characteristic to the brew. Slightly caramelized malts add a nice Autumnal color and a faint nuttiness. The beer finishes discretely dry.

ANIVERSARY WHEAT ALE

Strong wheat ale, amber in color and character, with toasty and bready malt flavors. Smooth, slighty thick body, rounded out with local wildflower honey. Herbaceous finish. Brewed for our 1st Anniversary.

ANIVERSARY STRONG IPA

Strong IPA with copious amounts of Summit, Mosaic, and Sorachi Ace hops. Think: dank orange marmalade. Brewed for our 1st Anniversary.

MOUNT AIRY-SOUS-BOIS

Brewed in collaboration with Earth Bread & Brewery from Philadelphia, PA, USA. Cool fermentation begets a clean but rich “lageresque” nose, with light sulfur, spice and bread. Highly restrained and subtle yeast character throughout, bready malt character and smooth body. A touch of honey sweetness on the finish completes this nod to modern French bieres de garde.

All of our beers are unfiltered, unpasteurized and free of preservatives .
More than 90% of the malts we select are organic.
