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.
Alt. The name of this beer style comes from the German word "meaning old". This refers to the aging that alts undergo since they ferment more slowly and at colder temperatures than most ales. Slow fermentation helps condition the flavors in Alaskan Amber. Richly malty and long on the palate, with just enough hop backing to make this beautiful amber colored “alt” style beer notably well balanced.
Art Car IPA is an American IPA featuring a blend of both new and old hop varieties from the Pacific Northwest. The nose is a blend of apricot and tropical fruit and mango. The taste starts with a big bitter blood orange that morphs into mangos and sweet tropical fruits. There is a lightly sweet malt body that allows the hops to shine while there being a nice complexity to the flavors.
Brewed for tap walls overrun with the white noise of West Coast IPA's, here’s an offering so exotic, you’d think it was from another world. Like its namesake before it, the axis deer of Southern Asia, so too has this species (beverage?) of hop-forward animal magnetism come to invade the landscape of IPA’s that have long held sway over the taps of Texas’s finest watering holes. Tropical fruit, citrus, and a pale golden body, help keep this breed light on its feet. And with few natural predators there is little anyone can do to stop the spread. IPA may not have been born in Texas, but it will soon seem as native as the sky that stretches between its borders.
Bobby Dazzler is a thirst quenching Australian Blonde Ale with just a hint of bitterness. Brewed with local Houston honey and Australian Topaz hops, the Bobby Dazzler is a wonderful blend of Australia and Texas. The tropical fruit flavor of Topaz hops shine through in this beer. Who’s Bobby? You are!
A pre-Prohibition style German lager brewed from a 1902 recipe from the original Terre Haute Brewing Co. in Southern Indiana. Refreshingly light pilsner body with some sweet complexities given off by the corn malt used in this recipe make this the perfect summer lager. 2013 Indiana Brewers Cup Silver Medal Winner
We finely tuned 3 grains, a copious amount of hops added throughout the boil and then balanced it with rye to create this one-of-a-kind ale. Some may call it an IPA, a Pale Ale or maybe even a variation of an Irish red. We really don’t care for labels, we just know it nails the dry, crisp taste and depth we were looking for.

True to its Boontling moniker, “Huge Arker” is a massive force of nature that detonates on your tongue. After primary fermentation, the beer is aged in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels until it fully matures. The deep mahogany color is evocative of the opulence to follow. Dark luscious aromas of burnished oak mingle with candy sugar, bourbon and hearth-baked bread. The luxurious flavors redolent of honey and molasses are intertwined with the richness of dark chocolate and the ardent warmth of alcohol, underpinned with hints of coffee, vanilla and dark fruits.
Citra Pale Kolsch OF VERY LITTLE THREAT German malt and Citra hops are cosmically balanced in this weird hybrid of a beer style. The hops hang on your tongue, much the way a brick doesn't. Drink up, the world's about to end.
This is our take on a classic American Cream Ale. One of Peter Zien’s original homebrew recipes, this beer uses the addition of rice to create a light, flavorful maltiness. It also has a pleasant floral component from hops added to our hopback and during dry-hopping. The finish is crisp and refreshing, making this the perfect brew for a summer day.
A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher. Namaste White was originally brewed at our pub in Rehoboth Beach with our Italian friend Leo from Birra del Borgo. It was a tribute to our friends at 3 Fonteinen brewery in Belgium, who had devastating production loss (1/3 of their annual production) in 2009.
Pooltime Ale is a refreshing Belgian-inspired Wheat Ale with light clove notes. The truly distinguishing feature is the use of 100% Montmorency tart cherries grown in the Traverse City region of Michigan. These cherries add a subtle tartness and bright counterpoint to other flavors, enhancing Poolside’s fruity character and making it the perfect beer for all summer activities.
Year-round: Cans and Draft A totally bitchin' West Coast-inspired IPA hop-bursted with a ton of Amarillo, Denali, Equinox and experimental hops. Citrus hop flavors mix with a piney and juicy hop-bomb of a nose. Part west-coast, 100% Austin. It's like goin' back to Cali, Cali, Cali. Malts: Czech Pilsner, Munich, Flaked Maize, Crystal 45L Hops: Amarillo, Equinox, Denali, CTZ, Experimental (rotating) Yeast: IPA Yeast
Rupture was born out of our obsession with getting the most out of each and every hop. In fact, we built a machine in our brewery to incorporate a unique fresh grind process. By grinding the whole hop, we "rupture" the lupulin inside - releasing the oil that gives the beer its flavor. And what we grind that day, we use that day. Leaving you a beer that's fresh, aromatic, with an unparalleled bright, hoppy character.
A collaboration with City Acre Brewing. Saison de Northside brings our Greater Northside neighbors together for this locally made saison. Brewed with local honey, lemons, and bay laurels, this beer has a floral, spicy, clove, honey flavors and aromas.
Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales (Dexter, MI) and Maui Brewing Co (Lahaina, Maui, HI) collaborated to create Sobrehumano Palena ‘ole or “superhuman”. It is actually Maui’s first collaboration in a can, brewed with passionfruit and cherries. This is Jolly Pumpkin’s edition of the collab. Each brewery will add its own unique spin – as Maui will ferment normally (arriving in cans), and Jolly Pumpkin will make it a barrel aged sour (in bottles). The beer was designed with two noble fruits from the two states Cherries & liliko’i.
Inspired by classic European lagers, our entire Brewing Team got together to create this truly collaborative beer that captures the essence of European tradition. The result, Spezial Pils, is our take on a German-style pilsner with a pleasant balance between light, grainy malt and spicy, floral hops. We lager it at freezing temperatures for an extended period to round out its delicate flavors and improve drinkability. The finish is crisp and clean with a pleasant dryness and subtle bitterness. Prost!
This dry hopped extra pale ale has an undeniably pleasing aroma and clean crisp finish. A mythical legend echoes in our brewhouse- that St. Lupulin, the archetypal hop head devotes his endless summers to endless rows of hops, tending to the flowers and beloved resin within, lupulin.
In our Brewers’ Tasting Panel, we all get excited every time we sample one of our new beers for the first time. When we absolutely nail a beer, and get exactly what we were hoping for on the first swing, we call it a homerun. This morning’s (hey, we’re professionals!) taste panel was definitely a homerun. Or, as Brewing Supervisor Mike Richmond commented, “this one has got the love.” We brewed this beer using the same ingredients as in our classic Stone Ruination IPA, but bumped up the malt to achieve its elevated 10.8% ABV. And of course we jacked up the hops as well. Not just in the boil, but we doubled the dry-hop amount, using a 50/50 blend of Centennial and Citra. The combination is, dare I say, magic.
A true bohemian-style pilsner. Crisp and refreshing, this beer is perfect for a hot summer day. Saint Arnold Summer Pils has a delicate, sweet malt taste complemented by an abundant hop aroma and flavor. This beer is brewed with fine German malt, and a copious quantity of "noble" hops imported from the Czech Republic. Saint Arnold Summer Pils is best consumed at 36° Fahrenheit.

There is nothing more refreshing than a cold Summertime Wheat at the end of a hot Texas day. This refreshing, lightly hopped ale has unique banana and clove-like characteristics. It is unfiltered so the yeast character comes through with a light but full body.
Texas Golden Bock is our newest Taproom Series offering. It is a tip of the cap to the original Hill Country dark lager. The color is golden straw, with a pillowy white head. We used non-GMO ground white corn for 20% of the grain bill, providing a light body and a slightly sweet flavor. The nose is light noble hops, and a touch of sulfur. The flavor is sweet corn, offset slightly by the bitterness of roasted barley, and just a kiss of German hops. This is a perfect beer for the hot Texas summer, whether you're floating the river, smoking a brisket, or quenching your thirst after mowing the yard twice a week. Cheers, Y'all!
This hoppy german pilsner really puts the Wow in Wow Factor. Jam packed with German Mandarina Bavaria hops to add a unique orangey aroma and flavor to this otherwise traditional pilsner. Perfectly refreshing during temperatures rivaling the face of the sun.
