DAM-242_JACKED-BLACK_cutout1

The Hoporter is at once balanced and drinkable, yet complex and dangerous. Pairing rich, dark malts with zesty American hops in an amazingly quaffable 7.6% abv. $4.74 for an 8 oz snifter.  No happy hour.

This light, refreshing session ale was brewed with El Dorado, Mosaic, Triple Perle and Columbus hops to give a refreshing, slightly fruity, citrus hop flavor. A great beer to enjoy after a day of spring hot laps on the slopes of Summit County. Lap it up… 4.5% abv


Chili Lager

DAM-363_IPA_Cutout1

A light, crisp Mexican-style lager with over 33 lbs of fresh roasted green chilies.  Jalapeno, poblano, anaheim, habenero and even some sweet-n-spicy Fresno chilies.  The chilies this season were on the mild side, so while it smells of spicy green chili, the flavor is actually quite mild and very drinkable. On Tap March 7, 2015.
