The South End Saison is a dry French saison. Our saison was brewed with a traditional saison malt bill to enhance the soft mouthfeel of this otherwise very dry beer. To give a little extra depth of flavor to this already complex beer we added delightfully fruity Mosiac hops and cracked peppercorn at the end of the boil. Combined with the lemony character from the French saison yeast, the result is a wonderful balance of tasty spice and fruit flavors.

This pilsener highlights the power of “L.E.M.,” our custom-made, proprietary hop handling device, to infuse the noble Saaz character in to the beer.  After utilizing whole cone Saaz hops, both early for bittering and late for aroma, we pass the hot wort through L.E.M. on the way to be cooled for fermentation. Then L.E.M. is packed with even more whole cone hops in an ultra-late hopping charge.  After six full weeks of lagering, we dry hop more Saaz into the finished beer using L.E.M. to inject and circulate the hop slurry to maximize hop oil extraction.

Dampf Punk is our take on the California Common, a uniquely American style lager. This beer is fermented with our house lager yeast at a higher temperature more common to ales, yet showcases the best attributes of both lagers and ales. It holds the crisp clean flavors of a lager but the mouthfeel and complexity of an ale. The dry-hopping of this brew in the fermenter provides soft tropical and herbal notes which serve to accentuate the clean profile of the beer while simultaneously complementing the fruitier notes contributed by the warmer fermentation.

Beechwood smoked malt brings the signature smokiness to this Rauch Bier style Märzen.
