Finally IPA

The first beer the Green Dragon Brewers produced for the Green Dragon was called “Finally” after the long struggle to make a beer at the pub and the result (Finally). Tonight we have the return of Finally IPA. It is the original recipe brewed by the original brewers and tonight, 450 beers later is the return of Finally IPA. A malt driven beer with a lot of hops give you that old time hop burn. Magnum, Cascade and Simcoe hops provide a clean bitterness with a flavor of the pine and citrus. Yet the malt, hops and alcohol meld together with a nice balance the average hop-head will enjoy. An IPA for the Fall season seems appropriate and Finally is here just in time for the 10th anniversary of the Green Dragon Brewers (party on November 9th, 2-6pm!).

Jaggery IPA

The tropical flavors of palm sugar (Jaggery) mixed with sweet malt from Gambrinus combine to produce a tangy IPA for a hot afternoon. Magnum hops are used for bittering and a generous portion of fresh Casdade leaf hops for aroma near the end of the boil to produce a fresh citrus flavor to blend with the jaggery and malt. Clear, clean, and tropically refreshing, Jaggery IPA is great on a hot afternoon.

Barley Bustin’ Wine

The first beer in our Barleywine festival is a wonderful, malty example of what many will have in mind as barleywine; malty, big, semi-sweet with a long, bitter hop, finish.
We brewed this beer in November with a base malt of a 50-50 blend of English and American malts.  Added are small amounts of Vienna and Wheat malt for character and head retention. After a low temperature mash, we decocted five gallons and then caramelized the first runnings. The result is a beer with a huge body, malty with notes of caramel and a good bit of alcohol.  We rounded out the beer with Warrior hops for bittering and Mosaic hops for flavor to bring some balance to this great example of traditional barleywine.
