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.
Style: Indian Red Ale
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
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.

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.”
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.
Style: Wee Heavy
Believed to have originated from Edinburgh in the 1800s, the brewing of Scotch ales is now more of a focus for the US craft brewers than for those in its homeland. This beer, however, is a distillation of all that is good in Scotland. A liquid fruit cake with a malty foundation and a rich spice finish, this will fill your palate and astound you for minutes as you unlock the multi-layers of flavour.
A blinding pairing with roast lamb and equally good with a dram of Glenmorangie Lasanta.

Bittersweet in mouth with a dry finish packed with fruity notes and Goldings hops. Black Sheep Ale is a full flavoured, premium bitter with a rich fruity aroma. We use plenty of choice Golding hops which give it a roast coffee maltiness followed by Black Sheep’s characteristic refreshingly dry and bitter finish.
Fermented for an extended period, this premium lager features an aromatic sweetness in its amber tones. With the combination of high quality malts, roasted sweet potatoes and beer craftsmanship, this beer is unique to the Bushu area, using Kawagoe's famous produce, Kintoki sweet potatoes. Take the time to fully enjoy its full flavours and the slightly elevated alcohol content. Called "Beniaka" meaning Crimson Red, in honour of the colours of the sweet potatoes which helped produce it.
Op & Top is an English bitter-style beer brewed by the Dutch from de Molen. It is original in that it uses American hops, in particular Cascade and Amarillo. It’s a rather light beer since its ABV reaches 4.5%, it features an aromatic profile which is absolutely unexpected for this style of beer.
You will have understood that this amber beer is at the crossroads between English Bitter and Indian Pale Ale. It is per consequent perfect for quenching your thirst during a warm day!
