Beers with emphasis on malty characters
This is an ale that is not afraid of standing tall among other great beers. The intense, sharp and fruity hoppiness is backed by its complex, caramel-like malty structure. Big, yet refreshing. Bold but balanced. This beer has been designed to have it all, to be the greatest common denominator.

The Lone Crusader.
No beer is above the law around here, including Gnight Ryder. This imperial black ale is interred in red wine barrels and emerges unrecognizable. It’s not the general, it sure ain’t the sheriff, it’s the Gnight Ryder.
Style: Imperial Black Ale aged in Red Wine Barrels
Double brown ale aged in bourbon barrels in honor of the greatest rock and roll band on this or any other time: JACKYL. Drinking this fine beer will make you feel like the sun is shining down on you, and the heat of love’s flames, down on you. You’ll love the thought of me coming... down on you. This is only weird if you make it that way. PS. We won’t make any beers about pussy rock ballads, I promise!
Style: Imperial / Double Brown Ale
Imperial Brown Ale with Chestnuts. We did this for no reason. So under no circumstances are you to expect anything. Except a rich, chocolaty and nutty, barrel aged brown ale. Jorge pours dark and roasty, so don’t be alarmed when you ask for another. It’s not you, it’s Jorge.
Style: Imperial Brown Ale
Big, ballsy, barmy and barrel aged. London Balling is not typical. It's a skirmish of flavour. The barrel imparts oak and vanilla, mixed with the caramel sweetness from a malt bill with brick, that'll knock your bloody bollocks around. Hey bloke?...fancy that, and you'll be gobsmacked.
Style: Barley Wine
A truly ground breaking beer, this Barrel aged Rauchbier was an attempt to replicate the flavors present in Islay Scotch Whiskey. We used Munich malt as a base and added copious amounts of Beechwood and Peat smoked malt, which provides the intense smoky and earthy peat flavors found in Scotch. Then the addition of Alderwood smoked salt lends a crisp brininess that is reminiscent of the sea air in the Islay region of Scotland. Aged in used Angel's Envy Bourbon Barrels to give an intense caramel, vanilla and whiskey flavour.
Style: Smoked ale
This is the brown ale to end all brown ales. Enjoy it, because there's no longer any reason to drink another brown ale. You've reached the pinnacle. The Disco Bump. The Brown Note. Drink this beer or shit yourself trying.

Luxardo® Maraschino Cherries are a far cry from the neon-red orbs that insinuate their way into mundane mixed drinks. Their deep ruby-black color, intensely exotic flavor, and rich fruit aroma make Luxardo® Maraschino Cherries an ideal garnish for a truly artisanal cocktail. So we wondered what they could do for a handcrafted ale. The real magic takes place in our cellars where—rather than dry-hopping this ale—we age it on a bed of these magnificent cherries. The result is a uniquely complex brew that offers the perfect balance between sweetness and tartness, with depth of flavor, tantalizing aroma, ruddy complexion, and a luxuriantly dry finish.
Style: Cherry Ale
Aged for 6 months in Wild Turkey® barrels, this bourbon barrel-aged pumpkin ale is pleasantly creamy with a silky body and sweet caramel flavor. The aging process imparts notes of coconut, vanilla, and oak to compliment the tang of the spices and a hint of hops, all wrapped in a smooth, round finish.
Style: Pumpkin Ale
Celebrator has a creamy head of tight bubbles contrasting beautifully with its profound dark robe. It is full-bodied and velvety from half a year’s aging. Although it is strong, it is not overpowering. There is a wonderful and complex balance between the various malts, the alcohol and the subtle hops. A complex fruitiness of roasted malt and whole hop flowers make Celebrator great as a party drink with friends and family at celebrations. Despite its richness, it has a faintly smoky dryness in the finish.
This beer was first brewed in 1978 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our brewery. It has a golden-yellow color with a slightly flowery yeast, honey-ish aroma, tastes a little spicy and is full-bodied in initial taste, mild before swallowing and soft with a refined sparkle and fades with a well-balanced hint of bitterness. It is an especially drinkable and harmonious beer. Conrad Seidl, known as the Austrian “Pope of Beers”, on the Jahrhundert-Bier: “It is a malty beer that pronounces the precious earthy quality of malted barley.”
A rich, copper ale with a case full of gold medals.
Our California Amber takes its inspiration from traditional English ESBs. Four types of malts give it a bold complexity, and our proprietary yeast strain lends it a fruity, madeira-like richness. However, it’s the American hops that give this ale a distinct bite and floral aroma that have earned it just about every major beer medal.
Style: Amber Ale/ ESB-inspired Ale
It may have come from a right old recipe but Wee Heavy fits the bill today as much as it ever has. It is a classic Scottish heavy but has a lightness of flavour and a great reddish colour in the glass. Cracking stuff if we do say so ourselves.
