  • FG = 1.015

KircheWeizen- The tart cherry wheat makes its return, made from a secondary fermentation on top of tart cherries picked by Grandpop V.

  • 5% ABV
  • OG = 1.046
  • FG = 1.008
  • IBU = medium

Dortmunder Export- This beautiful lager returns. Malty, golden, clean, crisp. Subtle like a Pilsner but a touch more complex.

  • 5.1% ABV
  • OG = 1.048
  • FG = 1.008
  • IBU = low

Peach Dortmunder- We took the Dortmunder Export and sent it to secondary fermentation over peaches. We may have a new hit with this one.

  • 5.2% ABV
  • OG = 1.048
  • FG = 1.008
  • IBU = low

Pilsner- We tried this beer at the Crawfish Boil right out of fermentation. It was awesome then, and the cold summer lager turned it into one of the best beers here today.

  • 5% ABV
  • OG = 1.048
  • FG = 1.010
  • IBU = medium

Munich Helles- This is the typical lager beer consumed in the Bavarian beer gardens. Helles means “light”, but not in ABV or calories. Light in color only.

  • 5.3% ABV
  • OG = 1.054
  • FG = 1.013
  • IBU = low

Kölsch- A classic German ale, pale in color and easy to drink. This keg has benefitted from a long summer cold storage (a.k.a. lagering).

  • 5% ABV
  • OG = 1.048
  • FG = 1.010
  • IBU = low

Bauhaus Bier- Made from all German ingredients, this amber ale crosses the Kölsch yeast strain with the Oktoberfest grain bill to produce a unique amber ale.

  • 5% ABV
  • OG = 1.050
  • FG = 1.012
  • IBU = low

Berliner Weisse- A pale and mildly sour beer, that has been aging for over a year!

  • ABV = 3.2%
  • OG = 1.034
  • FG = 1.010
  • IBU = low

Berliner Weisse w/ Woodruff Syrup- Sweeten that sour beer with a splash of woodruff syrup just as they do in Berlin.

Berliner Weisse w/ Blood Orange Syrup- Or try it with blood orange syrup for something different.

Radlers- We can mix a beer with any soda to make a radler. Conventionally a Radler is lemonade and a light lager beer. Our house specialty though is the cherry soda in the Kirche Weizen.

 

Post Oktoberfest Notes-

Another successful Oktoberfest. Weather was perfect! It was sunny and in the mid 70’s. We consumed roughly 75 gallons of beer (14 kegs) with only splashes of the PfefferWeizen and Kolsch left. We barely tapped a keg of Weizen and the Berliner Weisse a partial. We consumed 225 pretzels and 150 or so sausages. No police or EMT’s were called, and all seemed to be happy.

Lots of positive feedback again on all the beers. The Oktoberfest was a winner and all three kegs were gone relatively early. Pilsner and Paech Dort were big hits. The PfefferWeizen was a success despite being super hot. The fans of the heat drank a lot of it.
