ABV: 3.8% / IBU: 40

While it’s hopped like a lager, it is fermented like an ale to create a smooth, bright taste that has just a hint of fruit and spice.

Sculpin – IPA

The use of hops creates hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavors, but still packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish.

Fathom – IPL

The cold-fermenting lager yeast provides a clean base that allows the citrus and pine aromas from the hops to really shine.
ABV: 7% / IBU: 70

Tongue Buckler – Imperial Red Ale

This is a big brew with hops and malt in extreme abundance.
ABV: 10% /IBU: 108

Victory At Sea – Imperial Porter with Coffee and Vanilla

The subtle roasted notes and minimal acidity of the cold brewed coffee, balances perfectly with the sweet caramel undertones of the malt, creating a winning combination for your palate.

Grunion – Pale Ale

The baby sister version of Sculpin.
ABV: 5.5% / IBU: 35
