South African Kölsch

This hop-forward Kölsch was brewed with exclusively hops grown in South Africa. Newly available here, these unique hops impart clean, fruity flavors and aromas of ripe berries, stone fruits, currant, and some noble hop spice and earthiness in this light, easy-drinking Kölsch.

Strong Armed Ale

Brewed by GDBC with guests Chris and Amanda Page, this is an American Strong Ale that is hop forward with a surprisingly malty finish. Malts included Mecca Grade Pelton, Maris Otter, Munich, Flaked Barley, Victory and Special B. Centennial hops were used for bittering, Centennial/Willamette for flavor and Willamette for aroma and the yeast was Imperial Joystick. This was a homebrew recipe brewed by Chris (Amanda’s dad) since the mid ‘90s and was converted from a 5 gallon batch size to the Green Dragon system.

This ale is the perfect embodiment of Alex-Louis Armstrong, also known as the Strong Armed Alchemist.  The backbone of the Centennial and Willamette hops create the familiar sturdiness that we all know and love.  Finishing off the beer is the malt sweetness that echoes Armstrong’s kindness towards others, something that is unexpected from an American Strong Ale.
