(512) Double Pecan Porter is a robust porter accented by organic Texas-grown roasted pecans and subtly enhanced by aging in recently emptied oak whiskey barrels. Notes of chocolate, coffee and pecan marry with the subtle flavors of vanilla and whiskey to make this a wonderful warmer worth sharing and savoring. We sincerely hope you enjoy every sip.
7-Iron doesn't necessarily fit a certain style, but we like to think of it as a hybrid between a blonde and a pale ale. Less bitter than a pale ale, but all the mad smells that you demand in your life. On hot days, at work or play, this is the beer you go to when you need out of the rough. Clean, neutral fermentation profile allows Vienna malts and Mosaic hops to shine through. The distinct berry/citrus character of Mosaic is present but reserved. Combined with a lower alcohol content, this beer is flavorful, refreshing, and supremely sessionable.
A well balanced, full flavored, amber ale. It has a rich, malty body with a pleasant caramel character derived from a specialty Caravienne malt. A complex hop aroma, with a hint of floral and citrus comes from a combination of Cascades and Liberty hops. It has a rich, creamy head with a fine lace. The light fruitiness, characteristic of ales, is derived from a proprietary yeast strain. Saint Arnold Amber Ale is our flagship product and our first official brew, best consumed at 50 - 55° Fahrenheit.
Aged in port wine barrels, this year’s release of Darkest Hour returns for winter solstice full of stone fruit, dark plum, cherry, and black currant. A fortified wine aroma smites sweet roasted malts with tannic berry. Simple flavors of tobacco, coconut, and chocolate have charred the wildland.
A hoppy full-ﬂavored ale similar to an American IPA in hop aroma and ﬂavor, but without the perceived bitterness. Mexican Key limes have been added to accentuate the citrusy aroma from the American hops while balancing the bitterness with the sweetness of the Key limes. Lime peel is also added to create a more complex citrus character. This is a new, inventive style of beer, the Mexican IPA. 5.6% / 39 IBU / 8.1 SRM
Brewed with well water (the original well at the Old Brewery, sunk in 1758, is still in use, with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground); fermented in ‘stone Yorkshire squares’ to create an almost opaque, wonderfully silky and smooth textured ale with a complex medium dry palate and bittersweet finish.
Very hazy gold color, reminiscent of fruit juice, white head. Bright fruity aroma, with notes of tropical fruit, pineapple, and melon thanks to the generous whirlpool and double dry hop infusions of Citra, El Dorado, and Azacca hops. Flavor gives an up-front citrus character, with a note of bitter orange zest, followed by a melon-like sweetness and tart pineapple and a mild hop bitterness that fades rapidly. Juicy. Delicious.
Very well balanced and good all around. Pours ruby red with good pink head and lacing. Light notes of lambic bretta with a good dose of raspberry. Well blended, and sweetness tempered well with bretta.
Swifty is a refreshing revival of a classic American style – the American Pale Ale. With a light-medium body and bright citrus hops, Swifty APA delivers bold flavor, remarkable balance, and thirst-quenching crushability. Here at Real Ale, we believe there’s always time for a Swifty!
This complex, straw-colored ale has clove and pear aromas. A marriage of spicy and fruity flavors help perfectly balance its elegant malt profile. Pair with rich foods like steaks, roasts, earthy cheeses, and cheese cake.
Jacob Spears, our 6th Great Grand Uncle, is credited as the first distiller to label his whiskey “Bourbon.” He built his distillery in Bourbon County Kentucky in 1790 — 203 years before we began brewing. While obviously a bit too late to produce Uncle Jacob’s wash, we’ve instead created something far more complex. In his honor, we present this robust, silky smooth, full-bodied and altogether extremely American rendition of an Imperial Stout aged for 6 months in the very finest Bourbon barrels. This explains a lot about our penchant for big brews! It’s in our blood!
This 4.9% abv cream ale was aged on vanilla beans and coffee beans and then blended with fresh cold pressed coffee to deliver an entire barista experience in an easy drinking sessionable ale perfect for an after work pick-me-up or lazy weekend mornings.
A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or “white” ale, this Rascal is unfiltered (yup, that’s yeast on the bottom) and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curaçao orange peel producing a refreshingly zesty classic ale.
A SMaSH, Single Malt and Single Hop, IPA using a caboodle (technical term for a large amount of malt) of malt and a new hop released in 2012 called Mosaic (HBC 369). It is a daughter of Simcoe (YCR 14), one of our favorite hops. Whole cone Mosaic is used for bittering, flavoring, and aroma in the kettle; it is also massively dry hopped. The beer is named after a Texas Heroine. Tasting notes: chalk-white head with a very clean malt backbone. The hops impart strong grapefruit, pineapple, and blueberry flavor and aroma. A strong beer that is extremely quaffable.
Cherry Hard Cider Essential elements- Apple, cherry Appearance - Deep pink and clear with a light, lacy head that quickly dissipates. Aroma - Crisp, clean apple cider, round, ripe tart cherry. Experience - Tart cherry sweetness up front with full, yet crisp fermented cider. Heavy apple skin compliments the cherry. Sweet, creamy honey rounds the flavor and balances the tartness of the cherry. Light carbonation lifts the flavor while the honey smooths the overall mouthfeel. Finishes crisp and clean.
