Core Beers

Farmhouse Ale

IBU: 20
Hop Variety: Belma™
Malt Varieties: Pilsner, Wheat, Munich, Acidulated, and Caramunich III
Color: Golden Pale

Good things come to those who wait.

For Belgian farmers, it was the beer they brewed over the long winter months to produce a refreshing Saison for their seasonal workers to enjoy. Our Farmhouse Ale pays tribute to those innovators, who rewarded their farm hands with up to 5 liters for a day’s work.

Light, crisp, and semi-tart, this Farmhouse Ale will revitalize your palate. Pairs well with artisanal cheeses and grilled meats.


Shy Giant IPA

ABV: 7.0%
IBU: 70
Hop Varieties: Centennial, Cascade, and Belma™
Dry Hopped: Mosaic™
Malt Varieties: Pale, Munich, and Caramel
Color: Light Copper

The hunter who chases two rabbits catches neither one.

Until now. In pursuit of an IPA that doesn’t wear out your palate, our brewers created our IPA to give you the hop character you expect balanced by a malty backbone.

Smooth and not overly bitter, we are proud to offer an IPA made with a combination of Cascade and Centennial hops and dry hopped to enhance the tropical fruit aromatics.


Lion's Paw Lager

IBU: 24
ABV: 4.6%
Hop Variety: Hallertauer
Malt Varieties: Munich, Pilsner, Vienna, and Caramel
Color: Copper

The truth is like a lion. You don’t have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.

Lion’s Paw Lager requires a feat of patience and resolve. Fermented and stored for weeks until the beer tells us it’s ready to be released to the world.

Fresh, crisp, and well-balanced, this german-style lager delivers a clean, elegant finish. Let this lion loose and hear it roar.


Invoking intense citrus flavors of grapefruit, this Berliner Weisse style beer is a classic tart wheat. The abundant tartness felt on the palate gives way to a pleasant citrus and orange-peel finish.

Well-balanced and food friendly, Curio will become your new favorite tart beer.
