Our next two releases in the Journey Series are ready for your enjoyment. We are offering a pre-order for these beers along with our third Brewers’ Best release on Saturday, November 7, with a pick-up day of Saturday, November 21. Please read below for all of the details.


Courage is the second release in the Journey Series and a wonderful showcase of whole fruits and nuanced tart and wild ale flavors. Courage is a white sour ale, fermented with our in-house sour culture and aged for two years before being finished with heaps of apricot and peaches fueling a secondary fermentation. This release is a celebration of  the courage it takes to harness passions and pursue an uncharted path. — $13.99/500mL (Limit 12 Bottles)


Fear is the third and final 2020 release in the Journey Series. The base beer is a baltic porter, brewed with figs and aged in hand-selected Cognac barrels for one full year before being finished with vanilla to provide a complex assortment of decadent flavors. This release represents the self-doubt and fear of failure that accompanies a pursuit of change. — $13.99/500mL (Limit 12 Bottles)

Holiday Ale

Holiday Ale is the third release in our Brewers’ Best series. This winter warmer is inspired by the festive taste of eggnog and is brewed with milk sugar and enough nutmeg to fill Santa’s sleigh! Post-fermentation, the beer is aged in bourbon barrels for over 3 months for an added kick of bourbon, vanilla and oak. It is sure to warm your spirits and fill you with good cheer! — $15.99/4pk (Limit 12 4-Packs)
