Our Brewers' Series is a way for the guys in the brewhouse to experiment with new ingredients, flavors, and techniques. And you get to reap the benefits. Each beer is a limited run that goes straight to tap, so keep your eyes peeled at your favorite bar or restaurant.

ON TAP NOW

dark side of the mild

Dark Side of the Mild is an English Dark Mild Ale. With a low ABV of 4.5% and only 20 IBUs, it is a session easy drinker featuring some roasty, slightly dark malt notes and just a touch of a hop bite. Milds are a very under-appreciated style, but were some of the first beers which now fall into the “session beer" category. IBU 20.

PAST BREWS

THE CRYSTAL METHOD

A German-style Crystalweizen (a filtered Hefeweizen), this beer has some of the banana and clove flavors typically associated with Hefeweizen, however, those flavors are more subdued as the yeast has been filtered out. About 4.5% ABV, but only 12 IBUs.

Brewer: Andy Feinstone

JEFF'S HAPPY PILS

A traditional Bavarian Pilsner brewed using Saaz hops and lagered for 6 weeks. 4.5% ABV with 32 IBUs.

Brewer: Jeff Opiel

SMASH Test Dummy

SMASH is Single Malt And Single Hop (SMASH - get it) style Pale Ale using only Pale Ale Malt and a new hop varietal called Jarrylo. These hops work wonderfully for bittering, flavor, and aroma additions providing the bite as well as pear and orange notes with a hint of spice.

Brewer: Mike Clements

What's Good IPA

The What’s Good IPA is a collaborative effort from the brewhouse staff. A solid foundation of golden malt flavors supports this glorious monument to the hops. Using Jarrylo and Chinook hops for bittering and flavor, as well as a final addition of both in the fermentation tank to add a citrusy aroma, this IPA will leave you craving another.

Brewer: Mike Clements

Brown Ryed Girl

An American rye, dry, brown ale with a slightly peppery flavor from the addition of rye malt to the mash. We have hopped this one with Chinook and Cluster hops to provide a nice punch, but not so much as to overpower the dark malty flavors from the Chocolate Malt and Roasted Barley.

Brewers: Jimmy Randall & Tyler Nelson

Hornet's Revenge

Hornet's Revenge is very medium body black pale ale, which gives it a twist with most black beers being heavier set (fatties). A hint of sweetness, followed by the a crisp and clean hoppy finish. The hops are fruity in both the nose and taste. Oh how we love our amarillo hops!

Brewer: Cory "Hornet" York

MEMPHIS VICE

Memphis Vice is a sour, cloudy, funky session wheat beer brewed in the tradition of Germany’s most beloved libation, the Berliner Weisse. We utilized the elusive, temperamental, and legitimately old-school sour-mash method to encourage naturally occurring Lacctobacillus from the malt to put the tart into our Vice.

Brewer: Tyler Nelson

Polska Grätz

To honor Poland for the 2015 Memphis in May celebration, we brewed a traditional Polish style ale known as Grodziskie, or Gratzer. Oak-smoked in-house, this wheat beer features a lighter body to push the smoke profile in front of heavier malt flavors. The slight tartness in the finish makes this beer a life-saver during the warmer months in Memphis.

Brewer: Jimmy Randall

BS Pale Ale

The Brewer's Series (BS) American Pale Ale is hopped with Columbus, Cascade, and Amarillo hops for a crisp, aromatic counterpoint to the slight malty profile from a small addition of caramel malts to the grain bill. If you’re looking for a nicely balanced beer with a hop forward flavor then this brew’s for you. No BS.

Brewer: Jimmy Randall

Red’s Hop Bomb 

A Red IPA with about 75 IBUs, hopped with Columbus, Citra, and Cascade hops, then dry-hopped with more Cascade. The malty backbone provides the red color as well as helps keep the hops from completely running away with your palette.

Brewer: Jimmy Randall

Where's the Sesh IPA

We brewed an Imperial Session IPA using pale malt with a touch of Munich malt for a soft backbone and hopped with Jaryllo, Chinook, and Cluster hops. The only thing this beer will leave you wondering is where can I find more?

Delta Force
Brown ale

This American-style Brown Ale was brewed for "A Taste of the Delta" at the James Beard House in NYC. We added locally-sourced flaked sweet corn as well as sorghum molasses to provide some MS Delta inspiration. Brewed with a base of pale malt with roasted and chocolate malts to provide dark roasty notes. This beer has a mild hop characteristic from Glacier hops.
