Amarillo Fresh Hop IPA

For this year’s fresh hop beer, we traveled down to Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon and picked up over 20lbs of fresh Amarillo hops from the hop farms operated by Coleman Farms.

The melon, stone fruit, and citrus aromas from the Amarillos are paired with spicy, fruity UK hops, malt, and yeast for a complex and flavorful mix of UK and US IPA styles.

Gelber Drache IIIPA

The Gelber Drache (Yellow Dragon) is here to bring you warmth, illumination and wealth. It is huge with a beautiful, long-lasting white head and a lingering bitterness from the plentiful Sorachi Ace and Citra hops which give this monster a lemony-citrus flavor. The Weyermann pilsner malt provides a strong backbone to balance the bitterness.

In Japanese tradition the color yellow symbolizes courage and protection, so don’t be a coward, but enjoy carefully as it is a very powerful beast.

Strong Armed Ale

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.

Downtown Cherry Brown

This tasty treat is the result of a collaboration with the Green Dragon Brewers and BEER Kakurega. We used Mecca Grade Pelton and Troubadour Moonlight Serenade to bring a rich and complex flavor to the beer. 5 lbs of tart cherry puree from Oregon Fruit Products and a light touch of cinnamon finish this bad boy off.
This is a very special release as all proceeds from the sale of the beer go to the ALS Association to fund ALS research.

Flat Out Spring Stout

We humbly present to you a rich and flavorful stout with notes of chocolate and roasted coffee.

For this beer, we took our Black Dragon imperial pumpkin stout recipe and removed the pumpkin and lowered the ABV. It is a very pleasant and smooth drinking beer, perfect for a nice cool summer evening on the patio. Give it a try!
