Brew Descriptions to Whet Your Whistle 

Ole Ran'l

German pilsner with moderate hop flavor and bitterness throughout. Subtle notes of white wine, fruit, tangerine, melon, and a dry hoppy finish. 5.5% ABV, 32 IBU. 


Devil Anse IPA

A medium-bodied American style India Pale Ale with notes of citrus and tropical fruit. While the hops provide complexity, they are balanced by a strong malt backbone. 6.9% ABV, 71 IBU. 


Bat Boy

German Schwarzbier with clean, moderate flavors of malty bread and notes of baker’s chocolate lend to a slow dry finish. 5.3% ABV, 22 IBU.



Slightly toasted with a very balanced noble hop to malt character. Brilliant, clean, and delicate body with cracker and biscuit in the aroma. 5.2% ABV, 20 IBU.
