With Big & Bold we try to go where few hop geeks have gone before – into the cellar, namely – to create grand cru barrel-aged stouts, porters and barley wines. Read more
You know, the type of beer people drive across the country to stand in line for. Beer with all the audacity and complexity of a grand cuvee. Because really, it’s amazing how many flavors you can conjure with a handful of American oak chips or a couple of orange peels and a few coffee beans. Toss those ingredients into a wooden barrel for a year and – voila! – you’ve got some serious magic. We admit, our Big & Bold beers aren’t always for everyone, but then again neither are Pop Tarts or Captain Crunch cereal, but plenty of people munch on those. Besides, how can you resist such serious stouts as our Mind Your Step series and Grandpa’s Caffeine Fix or Grandma’s Cooking Recipes? When you go Big & Bold you know you’re entering the realm of epicurean. This is where foodies go to have a jolly good time. It takes us a long time to age these beers, so we’d appreciate it if you took an equally long time sipping them. Seriously, enjoy! Check out the One-offs we currently have!
