Bombshell Buchu Blonde
Bonito Bomb is a spiced variation on our popular Sweetlips blonde. Buchu, an endemic South African herb used in many traditional remedies, imparts unique peppermint and orange aromas that are very obvious on the nose and lingers in the finish. The beer is light dry and refreshing and will be available as a summer seasonal regular.
American Pale Ale
A huge hop aroma characterizes this refreshing pale ale. Ocean Potion is our flagship beer. It is a classic American Pale Ale that pours pure gold with a solid lasting head that laces beautifully. Its trademark is the huge tropical fruit and citrusy aroma. This hoppy component is underpinned by a solid yet complex malt base. The first surprise is that this beer, after the aroma is all beer. Its light bodied and finishes surprisingly bitter. Ocean Potion pairs well with aromatic dishes like Boboti, Thai and Indian curries.
American Amber Ale
Roman Red is a beautifully balanced, medium bodied amber ale. It pours a clear African Sunset red with a dense off white head. The citrus and pine resin hop aroma typically associated with Pacific North Western hop varieties strikes a balance with caramel, raisins and a hint of smokiness from the darker crystal malts. Residual sweetness from the malt counters the hop bitterness. The beer finishes in a lingering mix of caramel and bitterness.
IPA (India Pale Ale)
Hammerhead is a well-balanced IPA with a distinct hop character that imparts mild citrus and pine aromas and significant bitterness, balanced with a solid malt backbone. It is continually hopped like Dogfish Head’s IPA’s which establishes a deep seated solid hop character in all aspects of this beer. Toffee and caramel are characteristic of the malts used in HammerHead. The working name on this beer was Hammer(ed) (Hop)Head and probably describes it well.
Besides beer, the taproom serves a seasonal menu and some fine local wines and artisanal schnapps.
