ALT-ERATION is brewed using old world techniques, high quality German malts and noble hop varieties. We blend a base of German Pilsner malt with hefty portions of Munich, Vienna and a touch of black malt. Alt- eration undergoes a multiple temperature mashing program to produce a classic upfront maltiness with a clean and crisp finish. Das Alt is hopped with Mt. Hood, Hallertauer Hersbrucker and Czech Saaz to provide a bitterness and level of earthy hop spice that plays a fancy partner to the classic German malt backbone. -hopsandgrain.com
ENDEAVOUR A double IPA. The color is deep amber with a light, creamy head. The nose starts off with a touch of citrus but then turns decidedly into peaches. -Saintarnold.com
SANTO A black Kolsh. Brewed using a Kolsch recipe with the addition of Munich and black malt. Light bodied and floral yet distinct dark malt flavor. -Saintarnold.com
PUMPKINATOR A special brew. An imperial pumpkin stout. Pale two row, caramel and black malts plus pumpkin, molasses and brown sugar. -Saintarnold.com
PRIMUS Dark, rich German-style Weizen beer made with wheat malt. Tastes like clove and banana flavors with a dark roast malt characteristic. -liveoakbrewing.com
SHINER BOCK Traditional tasting Bavarian beer that is smooth, rich and almost sweet. Very malty like a German lager.
