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
Grodziskie resurrects the last indigenous Polish beer style to go extinct in the twentieth century. Production ceased in Grodzisk in 1991. It is brewed using only oak-smoked wheat malt and assertively hopped like a pilsner. Even with a low ABV, the wheat malt delivers a full-bodied beer. The original Polish ale yeast strain ferments cold, alongside our lager yeast throughout lagering. Please enjoy this truly rare beer.
OG: 8ºP ABV: 3.0% IBU: 36
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.
