The only thing that surpasses the taste, is the legacy
Clan Ross Scotch Ale
This Scotch Ale is a strong ale style originating from Edinburgh, Scotland in the 19th century. Sometimes referred to as a wee heavy, this ale is dominated by big caramel malt and nutty/toffee flavors and finishes with notes of spiciness. This Scotch ale has a wonderful warming effect and is best served in a bowled snifter to appreciate the intense malt flavors and aroma.
The name says it all! While this IPA is an all-out hop attack on your senses, bursting with 8 different hop varieties, the finish is very balanced and non-lingering leaving you with a great drinkable west coast style IPA. It has a big citrusy nose of grapefruit and lemon zest with hints of mango. The ample bitterness is then balanced nicely with a malt background to carry the hops to victory!
This traditional Irish Red Ale has beautiful reddish auburn coloring and drinks with a perfect balance of caramel and honey notes. You will pick up a light malty sweetness and low levels of a fruity nose that is then balanced with Magnum hops.
This highly touted brown ale has a complex malt palate of caramel, chocolate, light roast and biscuit that will leave you with a medium nutty mouth feel. The behind notes of hop bitterness are derived from Horizon and Willamette hops.
A classic Irish Stout with distinct aromas and flavors of medium roasted barley and coffee, as well as some cereal-like flavors coming from the oat malts. This is a fairly light bodied and dry stout with low hop levels; definitely a pub favorite.
This big California IPA has a beautiful copper red color with ample malt sweetness to balance the over 84 IBU’s brought to you by a combination of Chinook, Nugget, and Crystal hops. Aromatic notes of herbs and a balanced soft fruity palate start you off and then you are left with a slight lingering piney bitterness at the end—a perfect introduction for those new to California IPAs.
This hybrid English/American style pale ale is made with traditional English hops known for their earthy flavors and American hops known to kick up the floral notes in the finishing aroma. This ale has a deep golden/copper color with a nice, slightly fruity malt flavor that leaves a smooth yet full mouth feel, and finishes with a nice medium bitterness. This is a great, easy to drink ale. Enjoy!
This is a traditional American style Porter. Up front you will catch the coffee and dark chocolate notes but the deep caramel characteristics will balance out your overall palate making this a nice comfortable sipper. This was truly an American classic heartily consumed by the Sons of Liberty!
A famous style, originating in the 18th century to enhance public relations with the czarist court of Russia, this beer was made strong to prevent freezing during shipment from England. The fairly low carbonation enhances the malt profile and the rich mouth feel exudes big flavors of dark cherries and raisins, with just enough roast flavors to give a nice coffee and toffee finish. The color profile is very dark with deep tawny red undertones and the richness of the alcohol leaves you with a delightful warm feeling.
Brewed and cellared in accordance with German Purity Laws of 1516, this is a Munich style Helles, meaning “light”. This clean lager has a pale yellow/straw color with nice bread-like honey notes that emanate from the German malts. Brewed with yeast currently used in Munich Lagers and hopped with Hersbucker hops, this beer leaves a nice hint of spice with a perfect dry, balanced finish.
We hope you are ready for this great summer fruit ale; it’s not cloying, but contains just enough soft malt flavors accented by fresh white guavas to leave you feeling like you are on a nice tropical island. Huge bursting aromas and flavors come out in the front palate but this beer finishes smooth, dry and refreshing. Enjoy that guava beer. You should have been around while brewing; the fermentation smelled great!
Reminiscent of the German style Kölsch with its pale straw/gold color. This blonde ale is an easy drinking beer because of its light malty palate, medium bitterness, and dry finish. You will pick up nice earthy characteristics from the noble hops. Overall, it’s just a nice balanced beer—light bodied, and refreshing.
This famous winter warmer, originating from Germany, is a malt bomb that leaves you with dark chocolate-cherry, caramel, molasses, and a hint of Brazil nut flavors with just enough hops to keep it from being cloying. This beer has a deep rosewood coloring and a very rich and powerful palate, but still remains a lighter bodied style—a great beer to pair with pretty much any food.
Inspired by the Trappist Brewers of Belgium, this is a Quadruple Belgian style ale of great strengths. It has a deep copper/reddish brown coloring and a full-bodied richness of raisins, plums and figs and definitely contains a winy characteristic with a slight tart finish, all of which are largely a byproduct of the yeast strain indicative of the style.
A huge malt profile stemming from Scottish Maris Otter malts and British Honey malts gives this double IPA a slight boozy sweetness that can be compared to a barley wine. Its 110 IBU’s come at the back of the palate to dry it out. The extravagant use of 3 types of dry hops yields a beautiful aroma of fresh cut pine and orange marmalade that truly emancipates the traditional hop profile. Please Vote for Abe Lincoln!
