AWARDS: Commonwealth Cup Bronze Medal Winner Best of Craft Beer awards Silver 2018
With a recipe that dates back to the 14th Century, this is one of our most traditional craft beers.

At 4.9% ABV, it is a refreshing, easy-drinking beer to be enjoyed throughout the year. Its grain bill includes nearly 50% unmalted wheat and oats, and it is lightly spiced with coriander and orange peel. The yeast in this recipe was cultured from the original strain near the town of Hoegaarden in Belgium, and it adds a pleasant fruitiness during fermentation.

Mocha Java Porter — 5.2% ABV, 16 IBU
Our 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.

Awards: Gold Medal in the 2015 NC Brewers Cup Gold Medal in the 2016 Best of Craft Beer Awards 2016 US Open Gold 2016 Brewers Cup Gold
This beer’s name literally means, “Beer which has been kept or lagered.” 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.
