Seasonal OfferingsDrew Scherz
Our seasonal beers are available for a limited time in cans at retail locations, and on draft in our taproom and at discerning bars and restaurants.
Dark and cloudy, Primus Weizenbock marries the rich, malty flavors of bock beer with the fruity and spicy flavors of weizenbier. Brewed with equal parts wheat and specialty barley malt, Primus features a subtle warming alcohol character. Dark roasted malts impart notes of chocolate, caramel, and toffee in concert with flavors and aromas of clove, banana, and vanilla contributed by the Bavarian yeast strain. Primus is a rich, complex beer perfect to enjoy throughout the Texas winter.
OG: 18ºP ABV: 8% IBU: 12
Live Oak Gold is a North German-style pilsner, cousin to our Czech-style Pilz. Gold is dryer and crisper, with more focus towards the floral Noble hops from the Hallertau region. The clean fermenting German lager yeast allows the hops to shine through the subtle, dry malt profile. As in all of our lagers, we use the traditional ingredients of time and temperature. Cold fermentation and lagering
produces a beer that is brilliant and beautiful. Prost!
OG: 12ºP ABV: 4.8% IBU: 34
This traditional wheat ale, made famous in the nineteenth century in the city of Berlin, features a svelte malt character, low bitterness, and effervescent carbonation. Berliner Weisse is a special beer that undergoes naturally limited Lactobacillus and subsequent ale yeast fermentations to organically produce a delicious, lemony tartness. Clean, tart, and thirst quenching, this beer is essential for summer in Texas!
OG: 9ºP ABV: 3.2% IBU: 6
Our fall classic, Oaktoberfest, is carefully brewed in observance with Bavarian-style and tradition. Emphasizing rich flavor produced by the finest German malts, Oaktoberfest balances malty fullness with the subtle clean bitterness of Noble hops. After fermentation with Bavarian lager yeast, we store the beer in our lagering tanks to allow time to round out the rich maltiness and to develop a smooth finish. O’zapft Is!
OG: 15ºP ABV: 5.8% IBU: 20
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.
