Our hottest summertime tradition is back! Every summer we can’t wait to brew this sizzling farmhouse style ale using one of the hottest peppers in the world - the ghost pepper! But, don’t let that scare you off! Earthy, spicy notes from these ghost peppers are balanced with fruity esters from Belle Saison yeast, and herbal, citrus notes from Cascade and Mt. Hood hops. This is an ideal companion to your backyard barbecues, long rugged hikes, and sunny lakeside picnics. Especially complementary for marinades and other cooking uses. Get it while it’s hot!

“Gosefish?” It was a pun too obvious to resist, making it the perfect name for a beer that’s just too good to resist! With its vivid pink hue, this beer has a refreshing blend of tart cranberry, tropical hibiscus, coriander, and a hint of salt - it's sure to hook you!

A hazy golden body capped with a snowy head. A wintry burst of juniper and citrus, on an updraft of Belgian-style aromatics. This beer was our “Everest”–a proper witbier, without wheat or barley!

Tasting notes: Busting with classic Belgian-style aromatics of banana, clove, and sweet orange, you won’t believe there’s no wheat!
American IPAs are known for their citrusy hop punch, but we cranked up the juice on this one! Brewed with a blend of Cascade and Horizon hops, then dry hopped with Altus hops, codenamed “Experimental Grapefruit”, this IPA is a serious citrus bomb. Lively and bright, bracingly bitter, and eminently refreshing, you’ll wish it grew on trees!
Tasting Notes: The grapefruit character of this beer is more “grapefruit rind” than grapefruit juice. Bracing and bright with a pungent grapefruit aroma and a powerful citrusy bitterness. A real hop bomb!
