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

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

Blowing Rock High Country Ale

ABV: 5.4% IBU: 29
Our flagship High Country is a deep, golden ale brewed with American 2-Row and Munich style malts. Cascade and Centennial are used in the finish and dry hopping. This is our best selling and most versatile ale due to its balance between a floral citrus hop profile and well-integrated hop bitterness. Clean, Crisp. Refreshing!

Blowing Rock 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.

Blowing Rock Oktoberfest

ABV: 5.7% IBU: 20
Our Blowing Rock Oktoberfest is the ideal Märzen style German Oktoberfest brew. It pours with brilliant, golden copper color and the malty aroma evokes notes of breaded caramel. A subdued hop profile creates a malt-forward, smooth finish to this well-balanced seasonal brew.
Available August 1st

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.

Schwarz Bier

ABV: 5.3% IBU: 26
This dark brown, German lager has a mild malt character with flavors of caramel and toffee. It is smooth and sweet without the heavy-bodied feel of a dark beer. This beer was first produced in Saxony, Germany in 1543 and is believed to have been consumed since the Middle Ages.

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.

Farmhouse Peach Ale

ABV: 5.9% IBU: 32
This seasonal ale is brewed with Belgian yeast and a malt bill including premium biscuit malt. Peaches are added during fermentation to result in subtle nuances of fresh peaches. This medium-bodied beer offers a delicious combination of baked bread flavors and fresh peach.

Roasted Pumpkin Ale

ABV: 6.5% IBU:
Our brewers roasted 160 pounds of North Carolina’s first pumpkin harvest to celebrate the glorious taste of fall. Premium biscuit and crystal malts provide a base of toasted bread and caramel with additions of vanilla bean, whole clove, cinnamon and mace that combine to create seasonal brew unlike any other.

ESB

ABV: 6.3% IBU: 44
Our ESB is a deep copper color and made with British 2-Row malts. This style dates back hundreds of years to Great Britain, so we craft our ESB to achieve a certain elegance from a select bill of quality malts paired with just enough specialty hops to make it a year-round favorite.

American Wheat Ale

ABV: 5.3% IBU: 22
An American style wheat beer that is cold fermented to be silky smooth on the palate. 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 and flavor.

Belgian Pale Ale

ABV: 5.2% IBU: 29
The distinctive, fruity and aromatic qualities of Belgian yeast resonate to bring perfect balance to the full-bodied maltiness of this classic Northern European ale. This beer is not too strong, but robust in the complexity of its flavors and aromas. Hints of floral hops and fruity aromas blend with a crisp, hoppy aftertaste to create a light, refreshing brew.

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.
