This is the fourth beer in our single hop series, brewed exclusively with the Sorachi Ace hop. Sorachi Ace was first bred in Japan, now grown in the U.S., it is known for its unique lemon and woody character.
Wyoming Whiskey Barrel-aged Lord Vader’s Imperial Stout. 26 OG. One year in the Oak. Released today, Christmas Eve 2013. This will knock you on your ass and taste so freakin good doing it. Whether you’re celebrating 16 inches of pow or bumming about your stocking full of coal, Dark Helmet will do you right.
Exposure is an American-Belgo pale ale. It has attributes of both American and Belgian ales. It is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain from the Westmalle abbey. This yeast helps impart an estery and slightly phenolic aroma. Exposure contains a high percentage of Cara-Belge malt. This Belgian malt gives the beer a restrained caramel note and its honey color.
Unlike typical Belgian pale ales, Exposure is heavily bittered with Chinook hops. The hops are added early in the boil to impart a firm bitterness. Absent is the hop aroma and flavor typical of American pale ales. This allows the fruitiness of the yeast and spices to shine. Exposure is lightly spiced with orange peel and Buddha’s hand. The result is a beer that is lower in alcohol and drinkable, yet quite flavorful. Exposure is a signature beer of Cory Buenning.
Number three in the Single hop series, only Chinook hops are used for bittering and aroma. Chinooks were originally bred as an alpha bittering hop but are now widely used as an aroma/flavor hop in American style pales and IPAs. They are piney and resinous.
In the Belgian Quadrupel style, “Panda” uses the Dutch Kasteel yeast and has Belgian candi sugar added to raise the gravity. Sweet and dark with a warming afterglow, winter warmer or velvet hammer? Cam Hieronymus is the original brewer (and the original Panda!)
Snow King Mountain is Wyoming’s first ski area founded 75 years ago by Neil Rafferty. Generations of Jackson Hole skiers have cut their teeth on the King. Home to the Jackson Hole Ski Club, Snow King is one of the steepest little hills around.
Snow King Pale Ale is an American/English hybrid, inspired by hoppy U.S. pales. It combines two of the UK’s most classic hops, Challenger and Fuggle, with a U.S. grown, high alpha Magnum. Dry hopping brings out the delicate flavors and aromas. The result is a copper colored, fully hop flavored and moderately bitter beer for skiers.
On tap in the pub, around town and in a commemorative can, this special pale ale will only run through the winter.
When you’re totally submerged in a deep powder ski run you’re in the white room. This White IPA combines the elements of a Belgian Wit beer with the Hops of an IPA. Coriander and Orange peel and Citra hops? Yeah it actually works!
Our own Jena Quackenbush showed so much passion for the pumpkin that Cory had to give in and together they created Pumpken Bush. Roasted pumpkin and squash are added in the brewkettle along with those familiar pumpkin pie spices. Fermented with a Belgian Saison yeast this rich, earthy autumnal beer exudes farmhouse authenticity. “Almost” as spicy as its creator!
Thanks to our friends down at The Liquor Store, we found ourselves with a Herradura Tequila barrel. Obviously we filled that up with Pako’s IPA, waited a year and now we have a very limited supply of Paquilo’s, it’s tranquilo! Also on the growler station at TLS but only for a very limited time…
This is beer number two in the “single-hop” series. Exact same grain bill as the Polaris Pale but with the new variety Mosaic. It opens with an almost onion-y aroma and transitions straight into the tropical fruits, mango chief among them. 5.1 % ABV 45 IBUs
