WHAT THEY WILL BE POURING
- 5.9 % ABV
English-Style India Pale Ale
Originally, this intensely hopped ale was brewed in the 18th century to survive the long sea journey from the cooler breweries in England, around the Cape of Africa to India where the temperatures were too warm to brew. This beer has a unique floral aroma from the generous addition of Cascade hops to the fermenter in a procedure known as dry hopping.
Myth Perpetuator Double IPA
- 9.2 % ABV
Imperial India Pale Ale
Our brewers work hard in a physically demanding job but beer lovers like to say that we're "Living the Dream", a myth popularized in today's craft beer culture. Our favorite way to make the myth a reality is by creating beer styles that we haven't made before. Hence "Myth Perpetuator", a super-hoppy Double IPA with a huge emphasis on west coast hop varieties.
Pamlico Pale Ale
- 5.2 % ABV
American-Style Pale Ale
The Pamlico Sound in Eastern North Carolina is a true sportsman's paradise. Our clean, crisp Pamlico Pale Ale is brewed using simple, American-grown ingredients with a freshness rivaled only by the great outdoors.
Sky Blue Golden Ale
- 4.8 % ABV
For those desiring a lighter beer that still has hand-crafted integrity, this beer is a Kolsch style ale made famous in its namesake city of Cologne, Germany. This thirst-quenching brew is spritzy, not too malty, with the pleasing aroma of imported Hallertauer hops. While fermented warm like all ales, Kolsch beer undergoes a cold aging period like a lager which results in a brew that is complex yet easy to drink.
