Modeled after the classic wheat beers of Bavaria, HefeWeizen is cloudy and straw-colored with a meringue-like head that lingers to the bottom of the glass. Brewed with equal parts wheat and barley malts and few hops, this beer features a unique yeast strain that produces harmonious notes of clove, banana, and vanilla. A proper execution of the classic style, this idiosyncratic Bavarian style is perfectly at home here in Texas.
OG: 13ºP ABV: 5.3% IBU: 10
Styled after the Bohemian classic, Pilz is a crisp golden pilsner with an assertive hop character. With special Moravian heirloom barley malt, a traditional decoction mash creates a firm yet light body and deep golden color. Cold fermentation with a Czech lager yeast and lengthy secondary conditioning produce a brilliant beer that highlights the spicy and grassy Saaz hops. Authenticity in a glass; Pilz is beer.
OG: 12ºP ABV: 4.7% IBU: 36
The alluring lagers of Vienna provide inspiration for our Big Bark Amber Lager. German specialty malt lends a soft body with deep malty richness and aroma, perfectly balanced by German Noble hops. Cold fermentation and lagering assure a beer with a clean finish that showcases the interplay of the malt and hops. A beer of fine malt character and subtle hop nuance, it is accessible,smooth, and satisfying.
OG: 12.5ºP ABV: 4.9% IBU: 25
Inspired by the American Pacific Northwest rather than European traditions, Liberation IPA is exceptional among our beers. Generously infused with American Columbus and Cascade hops, this ale exhibits up-front hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness with solid pale malt character. Ale yeast contributes subtle fruit flavors and a satisfying dryness. Cold cellar dry-hopping at the end of fermentation imparts even more fresh citrus aroma reminiscent of Texas Ruby Red grapefruit. A premier example of an American IPA.
OG: 15ºP ABV: 6.0% IBU: 50
OG = Original Gravity. We measure this in degrees Plato. The Plato scale expresses the amount of fermentables in a solution as a percentage of extract by weight. This is also a gauge of beer strength. For example, beers in Europe are labeled as 12ºP instead of ~5.0% ABV.
ABV = Alcohol by Volume. This is measured as the amount of ethanol in the beer as a percentage of total volume. Most of our beers are around 5% ABV.
IBU = International Bittering Units. This refers to the amount of isomerized hop resins in the beer. Essentially, it is the perceived bitterness you will experience. The higher the number, the more bitter the beer will be.
