Sugar Creek White Ale Craft Beer in Charlotte, NC

White Ale ‚ÄĒ¬†4.9% abv, 16 IBUs

Alltech Commonwealth Cup Bronze Medal Winner
Currently Available on Draft and in Six Packs
With a recipe that dates back to the 14th Century, this is one of our most traditional craft beers. Our interpretation was inspired directly by Pierre Celis and his original efforts to resurrect this beloved style. This beer is an unfiltered Witbier or ‚ÄúWhite Beer‚ÄĚ to the Flemish-speaking Belgians because of its opaque, white appearance. It measures 4.9% ABV and is a wonderfully refreshing, easy drinking beer enjoyed throughout the year. Its grain bill includes nearly 50% unmalted wheat and oats while it is very lightly spiced with Coriander, Orange Peel, and a touch of other unique flavors. The yeast in this recipe was cultured from the original strain near the town of Hoegaarden in Belgium and adds a pleasant fruitiness during fermentation. Enjoy this beer with or without an orange slice. Although the beer connoisseur might frown at you, we won‚Äôt judge you if you ask for one.
Sugar Creek Biere de Garde, NC Craft Beer

Bi√©re de Garde ‚ÄĒ¬†6.8% abv,¬†20 IBUs

2016 U.S. Open Beer Championship Gold Medal Winner
2016 Best of Craft Beer Awards Gold Medal Winner
Currently Available in 750 ML Bottle Only (Bottle Service Available in the Tap Room) 
Name literally means, ‚ÄúBeer which has been¬†kept or lagered.‚ÄĚ No expense was spared in recreating this traditional artisanal ale from Northern¬†France. To recreate this regional specialty, we imported¬†all of the ingredients from the countries¬†that birthed the style. The end result is a malt-forward amber with deep hints of caramel and¬†candied apple. Eight different specialty malts come together to yield a magnificently complex¬†malt profile. The French Strisselspalt hops used for aroma create a mildly spicy and floral¬†bouquet. The unique yeast strain combined with warm fermentation and an extended cold-conditioning period produce a smooth and drinkable ale¬†reminiscent of a lager but with full¬†flavored ale fruitiness.
Sugar Creek Belgian Dubbel, NC Craft Beer

Belgian Dubbel ‚ÄĒ¬†7.6% abv, 22 IBUs

2015 U.S. Open Beer Championship Silver Medal Beer
Currently Available on Draft
Complex, mysterious and deceivingly dangerous, our Belgian Dubbel is both easy-drinking and full of character. Inspired by one of our favorite recipes, this craft beer will keep you guessing with an interplay of flavors: plum, raisin, spice, banana, clove, chocolate, brown sugar, and cherry can all be found in a single tasting!  A hint of earthy spiciness with a sweet lingering caramel tone precedes a pleasantly warm alcoholic finish.  By far our most expensive beer to create, our Dubbel pushes the limits of our lauter tun’s capabilities and delivers a beer worthy of the famed Trappist monasteries that originated the style.
Sugar Creek Brewing Company Saison

Saison ‚ÄĒ¬†6.6% abv, 25 IBUs

Will be back on draught in the Tap Room on 3-29-2016
A traditional farmhouse ale that dates back to the origin of agriculture in Southern Belgium, this style was brewed by farmers to nourish their seasonal workers ‚Äď known as Saisonniers ‚Äď ¬†during the grueling work of the season‚Äôs harvest. A fairly strong beer with an ABV of 6.6%, Saison‚Äôs were traditionally brewed in the winter strong enough to preserve them for the following year‚Äôs harvest but light enough to quench the farmhands‚Äô thirst. ¬†Our rendition of this craft beer will transport you back in time, where you‚Äôll be greeted with an array of distinctly Belgian flavors.¬† Notes of spice, clove and banana wonderfully combine in this beer with a light toastiness from its traditional Belgian Malt, finishing¬†with a tart and dry refreshing finish.

The Sugar Creek Raspberry White Ale is the result of the combination of a watchful eye, like that of a Trappist Monk, with the technical precision of a nuclear engineer.  This traditional 14th Century recipe has been revived by our beer engineers using over 500 pounds of fresh raspberries.  The Sugar Creek Raspberry White Ale is a naturally vibrant ruby pink in color and pours with a picture perfect white head.  The clean, yet subtle, tartness makes this beer the perfect pairing for the Carolina sunshine.

Sugar Creek Brewing Company Porter

Porter ‚ÄĒ¬†5.7% abv, 18 IBUs

Currently Available on Draft
Deliberately delicious, this beer is the perfect companion to a Fall Carolina day.  Four different malts combine with an understated hop character to produce notes of chocolate, coffee, caramel and a light sweetness which permeates the beer. Like its cousin the stout, the porter is full of rich, roasted malt flavors yet has a lighter body and balanced bitterness which gives this style its wide appeal. Moderately carbonated with a clean and bittersweet finish, this craft beer goes down smoothly and won’t fill you up, so feel free to have a few.
Sugar Creek Mocha Java Porter, NC Craft Beer

Mocha Java Porter ‚ÄĒ¬†5.2% abv, 16 IBUs

Currently Available in 22 oz. Bottles 
You’ve been patiently waiting, and finally, your fall favorite is back!  The Sugar Creek Mocha Java Porter perfectly embodies the fall season by blending all of the flavors of our rich and easy drinking Porter with a locally sourced, 100% organic, fair trade coffee.  Our beer engineers hand selected the brew and blend using ten of their favorite coffees and a double blind taste test. In this limited taproom-only bottle release, the hops take a back seat by adding some delicate floral notes and our blend of four malts and locally roasted, cold brewed coffee take the spotlight. The end result is an exceptionally smooth and drinkable beer with some mild dark fruit flavors, hints of roasted malt nuttiness and a bittersweet dark chocolate coffee finish.
Belgian Pilsner by Sugar Creek Brewing Company in Charlotte, NC

Belgian Pilsner¬†‚ÄĒ¬†5% abv, 40 IBU

Returning¬†in 2016 …..¬†

Based on one of the world’s most popular styles, our Belgian Pilsner is an ode to the great beers of Pilsen (PlzeŇą), Bohemia in the Czech Republic. The only lager in our lineup, this beer is exceptionally delicate, brewed using a traditional decoction mash with a single-ingredient grist of the finest Belgian Pilsner malt available. The result is a gleaming, golden-colored beer with a mellow yet full-flavored malt body. We hop the beer with generous amounts of Czech Saaz hops, a world class “noble” hop indigenous to the Czech Republic, creating a crisp, refreshing, and balanced beer with hints of Saaz spice.

Sugar Creek XV ‚ÄĒ¬†15% abv 320 IBUs

Currently Sold Out
Sugar Creek XV is a masterpiece of brewing ingenuity; a beer that was meticulously designed and engineered to deliver the most flavor and ABV allowed by law. We aged XV for over a year in American Oak Tennessee Sorghum Whiskey barrels, which created a monster beer of 15% ABV with 342 IBUs that finishes smooth and rich without a hint of bitterness. XV is brewed with three distinct Belgian malts and four varieties of American hops, producing flavors of oak, warming alcohol and whiskey balanced by a lush caramel and dark fruit sweetness. The extended barrel aging process contributes complexity to the brew while rounding the edges with delightfully subtle flavors of raisin, plum, candied apple and fresh biscuits. To successfully sustain the fermentation process for such a high gravity beer, a precise blending of fresh wort and three different yeast strains was infused with the fermenting beer at intervals around the clock for the first 14 days of production. In ingredients alone, the cost to produce this beer is an astounding $1,000/barrel, an amount more than 10 times that of our standard offerings! We can only afford to bring this labor of love to you in small quantities, once per year, and its available today for sipping with your best of friends and family in our tasting room at Sugar Creek Brewing Company.

Over The Horizon Pale Ale ‚ÄĒ¬†5.2% abv, 40 IBU

Currently Sold Out
We took our fan-favorite Pale Ale and dry hopped it with Horizon hops in addition to our standard whole-cone hops.  We used over 4 pounds of Horizon hops per barrel which produces richer aromas, more pronounced flavors with out additional bitterness.  This is a must try for Hop Heads!
