'The Lab IPA'
West Coast IPA - 6.0% ABV
This West Coast IPA was brewed with smooth hop blend of Azacca, Cascade, and Chinook hops. This smooths out the big kick of pine/resin like you might expect, resulting in a balanced hop presence thats citrusy with a little maltiness thats very approachable whether you like IPA’s or not!
Barks Hard Root Beer
Hard Soda - 6.0% ABV
This hard soda has all the classic flavors of Sassafras root bark and Sarsaparilla that you’d expect with a little vanilla for a nostalgic flavor we love!
Make it a float + $1
'Tiki and Chill'
Fruited Blonde Ale - 5.0% ABV
Our ‘and Chill’ fruited Blonde Ale series is back this week with the second release of ‘Tiki and Chill’! This beer starts as a Blonde Ale and then we added pounds of Pineapple, Mango, and Guava fruit and dry-hopped with Sabro hops which are known for adding a coconut flavor (without us adding any actual coconut)! This years batch finished at 5.0% ALC/VOL - *Cocktail umbrella encouraged - Straw optional*
'Dank Force IPA'
Double IPA - 9.0% ABV
This American Double IPA is the dankest IPA we’ve brewed. This hop forward beer finished at 9.0% ABV and 80 IBU and is packed with pounds of Chinook, Columbus, and Galaxy hops that packs a high resin kick but finishes clean with a low maltiness that makes it dangerously drinkable.
'Puro San Antonio'
Fiesta Beer - 5.5% ABV
‘Puro San Antonio’ is our once a year Fiesta beer that starts with a crisp Blonde Ale base and then we add pounds of Chamoy, Pickle Juice, and Cherry Koolaid! It’s reminiscent of those piccadilly raspa’s we crave on hot summer days! It’s spicy, sweet, salty, fruity, refreshing, and of course RED!
Listed lightest to darkest - all full size draft pours of core beers are $1 OFF Wed-Fri 3-6!
A Fine Light Pilsner - 4.0% ABV
Our first light beer! This Summer crusher is coming just in time for this San Antonio heat! We brewed this beer with Pilsner Malt and noble hops for a light, crisp, and clean beer that finished at 4.0% ABV!
Available in the taproom for $5 pints - cans sold out
'Bindi Blonde Ale'
Kolsch Style Blonde Ale - 4.5% ABV 20 IBUs
Our flagship Blonde Ale brewed as a true German Kölsch style beer. Light, crisp and refreshing, perfect for any time of the year or paired with any
meal. This ale starts off light and sweet from the Bavarian pilsner malt and finishes with a slight clean bitterness from the Noble German hops.
Our first lager beer! Helles might not be a real place, but it certainly is a state of mind. We get juicy white grape from the noble hops, low malt flavor, and just a little cracker at the end from this classic and crisp German beer style
Available in the taproom for $6 pints and 4x16oz cans to-go for $18.
'Hackberry Pale Ale'
American Pale Ale - 6.4% ABV, 40IBUs
'Hackberry Pale Ale' is our American pale ale brewed with Azacca, Chinook, and Simcoe hops which helps pack citrusy floral notes while the pale Crystal and 2-Row malts balance out the flavor. This hoppy pale ale pours a light amber color and finished at 6.4% ABV.
American IPA - 6.3% ABV 60 IBUs
Our flagship IPA named after our mascot, Mox. Brewed with Lupomax Citra, Mosaic, and Azacca hops, this IPA is a hybrid between a bitter west coast and hazy NE styles. The perfect introductory IPA for the crowd that says they don't like IPAs. This hazy IPA has smooth citrus forward notes of orange and papaya, finishing with a light clean & smooth bitterness.
California Common/Steam Beer - 5.6% ABV
'Dignowity Common' is a classic American beer style brewed with lager yeast and fermented at ale temperatures. It’s a light amber hybrid style unique to the US that dates back to the late 1800’s in San Francisco, California when refrigeration was a luxury item. Brewers at the time improvised by pumping their hot wort to shallow open top bins on their roof, so the cool air coming off the Pacific Ocean would chill the wort faster.
'Grizzly Greg's Mountain Ale'
Specialty Amber Ale - 8.5% ABV 30 IBUs
Embodying the wild, this our take on a classic amber style ale. We brew this strong Amber with juniper berries in the boil and add Texas honey after flame out to prevent scorching. This beer finishes with full body that drinks smooth for an 8.5% ABV Amber. We get flavors of wheat toast, caramel, and chocolate.
Sweet Stout 6.0% ABV 20 IBUs
We brewed a smooth and light ABV stout then added Costa Rican coffee that we roast in-house and premium Mexican vanilla for added sweetness. It’s a stout thats easy to drink in the morning, afternoon, or night that reminds us of a coffee milkshake in a beer.
