It started as innocent flirtation, but now it is totally serious. Amber and Brett are the hottest couple in craft beer, and everybody knows it. Amber was such a little-goody-two-shoes before but Brett is, like, this total rebel, who is always getting her into trouble. Lucky for you, Brett has totally rubbed off on Amber and now she's a little wild too.

English folklore speaks of a fairy, the Gooseberry Wife, who takes the shape of a hairy caterpillar and guards the tart fruit from the greedy hands of children.
Note even a creepy caterpillar could keep us from adding this deliciously sour berry to our deliciously tart and salty gose. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't keep an eye out for her when picking up a bottle.
An American farmhouse-style ale brewed with the IPA lover in mind. Big, bold, juicy hops join the dry, yeast driven saison flavor to create one of the most aromatic, undiluted hop experiences you can find.
We love the combination of juicy hops and the fruity esters and phenolics of Belgian yeast. Now we added Brettanomyces at the point of bottling to provide an extra layer of complexity and funk to our Farmhouse IPA. “Brett” is a formally wild yeast feared by brewers and vintners alike, but to some brewers Brett’s earthy and tangy flavors are as familiar and inviting as an old friend’s embrace. We hope you and Brett will be fast friends too.
It's the season to celebrate family and friends, and we've brewed a very special beer. Tangy cranberry meets spicy ginger, making the holidays warm and bright. We look forward to sharing many more prosperous years with the rest of us.

Possibly the most rustic and obscure beer of Germany, the salty, sour gose of Leipzig needed an American touch. How about grapefruit zest? The result is probably the only beer that goes just as well by the pool as it does with Thanksgiving dinner.

The bitterness is subdued to push hop flavor and aroma to the maz. Is it Just a Phaze? You tell us!

In the days of old, Saisons were brewed with unprocessed, unconventional grains left over from harvest. These beers were aged in oak, the only fermentation vessels available, teaming with the same microbes that had fermented the previous year's batch.

Almost 175 years later, we welcomed night air into our brewer spontaneously transforming our efforts into a living expression of time and place. Touched only by Nature's magic, this beer would live in oak whiskey barrels, ultimately completing a metamorphosis expressing both the vitality and delicate beauty of the land and sky around us.
