    SPECIAL

    WORD ON THE STREET IPA

    This IPA starts off with a soft bitterness that is accentuated by the use of Weyermann premium pilsner malt for a soft bready, light and crackery malt structure. It then transitions into a mélange of juicy mouthwatering hoppy goodness from Citra, Simcoe, Denali and Ekuanot hops. Dry hopped with Citra, Ekuanot and El Dorado to ensure a tropically, juicy fruit party on your taste buds.

    SPECIAL BARREL AGED

    DAMAGE INC. IMPERIAL STOUT

    Inspired by brewers back in the 1800's to win over the Russian Czar, this is the king of stouts, boasting high alcohol and plenty of malt character with huge roasted, chocolate and burnt malt flavors. A chewy malt sweetness with suggestions of dark fruit and flavors of higher alcohols are quite evident. Hop character from Columbus, Chinook nad Ahtanum, rounds out the attack on the senses. Six months in bourbon barrels mellows the alcohol esters, replacing them with sweet vanilla and a slight char flavor.
