This stout is patterned after the Irish dry stouts popular in Europe since the 1700’s. Our version
contains a mixture of black barley and roasted malt to give it a dark color and toasted flavor. The touch of sweetness from the pale malt is balanced by the Northern brewer hops. This is a classically brewed stout perfect for all year enjoyment.
Patterned after lighter English ales and sometimes referred to in the US as a blonde ale. Not too complex or bitter, just perfectly balanced for a deep refreshing quality. The crystal malt gives this ale a golden hue, while the Tettnang hops add the crispness we were looking for.
Just as it sounds! Crystal Base Malt for a light American Blonde Ale. After the Ale was “crashed” to 34 degrees we infused sliced oranges into the fermentation vessel. Let it sit for 10 more days, add carbonation, and this beauty arrived.
Our 1st Wheat beer at CRBC. Produced with the local Chapter of “Brewsters” with $1 per pint going to the center for women. After the Ale had completed fermentation, we introduced a local watermelon Puree to the cellar. The watermelons are from Red Rooster Organics in Lexington grown with no insecticides in spent grain from a brewery in Columbia. Simply delicious!
The key to an Extra Special Bitter is Balance. Bitter may be in the name, but a true English ESB is not bitter at all. The color is more on the darker side of the scale and is low in carbonation. A pronounced Malt taste leads to a toasty and fruity finish. A true English day drinking Ale. Available only in Taproom.
This truly unique Indian Pale Ale capitalizes on the Citrus notes of the Cascade and Simcoe hops. Our most aggressively Hopped Ale uses over 35 pounds of these West Coast hops in the boil phase to help eliminate the bitterness while leaving a beautiful floral note finish.
This beauty is Mark Fesche’s dedication to the West Coast IPA’s where he started his brewing career. Roasted Malts play an integral role in both the color and flavor. A darker hue and a bready finish make this a pleasure on the eyes and pallet while the copious amounts of Cascade Hops make this a typical West Coast IPA.
With the heaviest grain bill used at the brewery, the alcohol content was sure to rise for this cooler month fantasy Ale. Adding lots of hops creates the spicy character, with a slight alcohol finish to warm you up as you drink. The Very complex flavors of this Ale and rich red hue make it an employee favorite.
Popular with transportation workers in London in the 1700’s, hence the name. Originally a combo of 3 Ales (sour, brown, mild), this was the 1st engineered beer. Our version uses roasted & Chocolate malt with hints of coffee to complement the burnt flavor for easy drinking.
After securing some high demand hops, we decided we would make our own version of an “IPA” to celebrate our opening. This heavy hop profile Ale gets IT’S citrus and peach aroma from both Simcoe and Citra hops. Both dawning from Washington State, these hops have a tropical flavor and a piney finish. To add balance and flavor, caramel malts were added.
