ABOUT THE BEER

American Honor Series

Hop On N’ Ride

ABV: 6.7% IBU: 67
A ‘hop forward’ IPA that charges forward yet stays on the tracks. Pale malts offer a clean, crisp presence showcase the wonderful spicy, orange flavor profile of the brand new American Jarrylo hop!

Red Rider Amber Ale

ABV: 6.3% IBU: 39
Malt driven and deep amber-red in color with moderate hop intensity. Balanced; yet interestingly complex from carefully toasted malts and rich, fruity esters.

Legacy Series

High Country Ale

ABV: 5.4% IBU: 29
Our flagship Ale is a deep golden ale. This is our best selling and most versatile ale due to its balance between a floral hop profile and moderate hop bitterness. Clean, Crisp. Refreshing!

IPA

ABV: 6.2% IBU: 73
Our Blowing Rock IPA exhibits a brilliant copper color through the incorporation of North American 2-Row and other specialty malts. Kettle hopping provides evident but not overwhelming hop bitterness while the finish and dry hopping offers elegant hop complexity. Citrus and floral notes are balanced with a slight hint of caramel malt. This IPA is full-bodied and flavorful, yet thoughtfully integrated.

Mountain Spring Ale

ABV: 5.2% IBU: 24
Brewed with Pale 2-Row, Cara, and flaked barley malts, this moderately attenuated blonde ale drinks smooth and finishes clean and fresh. Careful kettle hopping yields undertones of citrus and stonefruit. Pours with brilliant straw color and a full, frothy head. Celebrate spring!

Blowing Rock Summer Ale

ABV: 5% IBU: 15
Our Summer Ale is often compared to a Beglian Witbier, as it is fermented with a Belgian Wit Yeast. The grain bill is domestic pale malt & white wheat. Kettle hopping is done with signature Czech Saaz hops that provide balanced bitterness. A late kettle addition of orange peel and coriander spice provides the finishing touch. The haze provides a nice background for this medium bodied beer marked with orange zest.

Ale House Series

Big Chocolate Porter

ABV: 7% IBU: 32
Our Big Chocolate offers an innovative twist to the traditional porter. Chocolate and roasted, dehusked Carafa malts provide a base of bittersweet chocolate and mocha. It is then dry nibbed with raw cocoa in the fermenter, and finished with a touch of vanilla bean to create the perfect balance between bitter & sweet. This beer offers the taste of roasted coffee and cocoa with dry, smoky undertones.

Stout

ABV: 6.6% IBU: 32
Inspired by the very best English Stouts; extremely full bodied with roasted aromas and flavors, medium dry to sweet finish with a smoothness and complexity that makes this one of our favorite offerings.

Cucumber Saison

ABV: 4.8% IBU: 29
Our French style Saison is light in color, but full in flavor. With subtle earthy hints of green peppercorn and a mild tartness and touch of sweet. This Cucumber Saison will surely cool down any hot summer day.

Double IPA

ABV: 7.8% IBU: 73
This stronger style of pale ale was originally developed in England to withstand long travel to the British Indian colonies. Today we brew our Double IPA even stronger with plenty of hop aroma, flavor and bitterness to compliment the large malt bill used to create this special ale.

Pilsner

ABV: 5% IBU: 40
Our traditional Czechoslovakian Pilsner won the gold medal at the Carolina’s Championship of Beer. It is brewed with German malt and Czech hops to create a perfect compliment of malt sweetness and body to the distinctive bitterness and aroma typical of this lager style. This beer is perfect evidence that light-bodied brews don’t have to be light in flavor. Our Pilsner drinks crisp and smooth, and still offers a richness of flavor.

Belgian Dubbel Ale

ABV: 6.6% IBU: 24
The distinctive, fruity and aromatic qualities of Belgian yeast resonate to bring perfect balance to the full-bodied maltiness of this classic ale.

ABV: 4.8% IBU: 22
An American style wheat beer that is cold fermented to be silky smooth. It’s perfect any time you want a light, refreshing beer. This beer is not filtered, but made in such a way that it’s clear and clean without excessive yeast cloudiness & flavor.

Hop Hiker

ABV: 6.5% IBU: 57
A massively hopped IPA with expressions of tropical fruit and nuances of citrus and pine. Medium body with mild bitterness and a clean hop finish.

Scotch Ale

ABV: 7.8% IBU: 32
A traditional Scotch Ale, this beer is made with pale and biscuit malts, and just enough roasted barley to create a strong, complex version of this wonderful seasonal ale.

Belgian Strong Ale

ABV: 9.5% IBU: 29
Our Belgian Strong Ale is truly unique. This ale consists of a fruity aroma and rich flavors from various dark malts and Belgian dark candy sugar. The addition of figs spiced with allspice & mace in the fermentation make this strong ale one of our most complex brews.

Barley Wine

ABV: 11% IBU: 72
This American style barley wine is aged in bourbon barrels on-site which provide complexity and a bold yet smooth finish. This style of ale originated in 18th century England, during a time when many of the traditional barley wines were very strong and served as healing drinks.
