Fireman’s #4 Blonde Ale: This refreshing blonde ale strikes a perfect balance between the smoothness of the malt, the subtle fruitiness of our house ale yeast, and zesty citrus notes from Crystal hops. Firemans #4 is a great way to beat the heat – enjoy it on a Texas summer day, or pair it with spicy foods to help put out the fire. The name comes from our good friends at Firemans Texas Cruzer, a local bike builder. Check out their rad bikes at firemansbikes.com
ABV: 5.10% IBU: 21.00 OG (plato): 12.00
Brewhouse Brown Ale: Caramel brown with a hint of chocolate, Brewhouse Brown melds four kinds of malt and American hops into a delicious dark ale. Rich and roasty, yet with a dry finish, it is the perfect companion for a hearty meal.
ABV: 5.40% IBU: 33.00 OG (plato): 13.00
Rio Blanco Pale Ale: Gold Medal winner – 2010 Great American Beer Festival
Deep golden and malty, with a spicy hop flavor and well balanced hop bitterness, Rio Blanco is a uniquely Texan interpretation of an English-style pale ale. Czech Saaz hops provide a crisp finish and delicate aroma.
ABV: 5.30% IBU: 26.00 OG (plato): 12.50
Full Moon Pale Rye Ale: Tawny red and full of malt and hops, Full Moon’s unique flavor truly satisfies. The smooth sweetness of malted rye and barley is complemented by generous helpings of Willamette and Cascade hops, resulting in an assertive American amber ale.
ABV: 5.70% IBU: 42.00 OG (plato): 14.00
Devil’s Backbone: Named for the scenic ridge that runs between Blanco and Wimberley, Devil’s Backbone is a Belgian-style tripel. Czech Saaz hops and Belgian yeast give this ale its distinctive flavor and aroma. Candy sugar made in-house at the brewery adds strength without increasing heaviness. The result is a deceptively strong, pale golden ale.
ABV: 8.10% IBU: 36.00 OG (plato): 18.00
Lost Coast IPA: Massive additions of American hops in Lost Gold IPA provide the signature flavor of this Hill Country favorite. German Vienna and English Crystal malts give our IPA its rich golden-orange hue and subtle yet firm malt background. Lost Gold IPA is available year round, so there is no need to hoard this treasured brew.
ABV: 6.60% IBU: 63.00 OG (plato): 15.00
Phoenixx Double Extra Special Bitter: Our winter seasonal is inspired by the great ales of the UK but brewed with a distinctively American attitude. English crystal malt gives Phoenixx its subtle toffee and caramel notes, but this ale is about hops. The blend of English hops, highlighted by its namesake, Phoenix, yields a complex hop character that dominates this special brew.
ABV: 7.2% IBU: 50.00 OG (plato): 14.00
