  • Curmudgeon’s Better Half 12.7 %
    Our Old Ale (brewed with Molasses and Oak chips) tamed by the tender embrace of oak and sweet maple infused from a years' stay in Maple Syrup Bourbon Barrels. The result is deceptively smooth and utterly delicious!
  • *Devil Dancer 12.2 %
    Massive in complexity, the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alphas used to create it. This triple-IPA is dry-hopped with TEN hop varieties.
  • Mas Agave 10 %
