Helhest Oat Ale
Helhest is the Norse goddess Hel’s ghostly three-legged horse. Even undead horses love oats, so we created an oat based ale to pay tribute to this spectral steed. Behold! The kuyt beer, a 15th century Dutch style with a deliciously fruity and nutty flavor, a silky mouthfeel, and hazy appearance.
Bad Motha-Fika Coffee Brown Ale
Bad Motha-Fika starts with a rush of coffee flavor with Dawson Taylor Coffee Roasters Compass Cold Brew followed by notes of walnut, cocoa, and biscuit.
GABF (R) 2019 Gold Medal in the American Style Brown Ale category. Naked Sunbather nut brown ale is–well–nutty and smooth with bold roast character. Featuring delicate northwest hops, this earthy ale will satisfy year-round.
Shield Maiden Cascadian Dark Ale
Hoppy, earthy, lightly roasty, “black IPA”, with floral notes. This is one of the Mad Swedette’s favorites – IPA with the full flavor of a dark ale.
With 3 kinds of caramel malt, 2 kinds of chocolate malt and a pile of roasted barley, for big roast and coffee flavors, this imperial stout is king just about everywhere!
