Our Family of Beers
D.T.B. Brown Ale
An all-malt American Brown Ale with just enough hop presence to keep it from being too sweet. The aroma comes predominantly from the malt with a hint of the spiciness of imported British hops. Seven distinct specialty malts are milled at the brewery and mashed together, providing a complex, nutty flavor with subtle, roasted undertones. This Pearl Street original is a favorite amongst locals and professional beer judges alike. Gold Medal Winner at the World Beer Championships, 2003. Available on draught year ‘round.
Food Pairings: Few styles are more versatile when it comes to food. The malt flavor stands up well to everything from spicy stir-fried Thai or Chinese dishes to BBQ ribs and Indian curry. At the same time, the fruity flavors and balanced maltiness go well with roasted chicken, smoked trout or salmon and hearty options like beef stew. Game dishes, particularly venison, are an outstanding pairing.
Pearl Street Pale Ale
A well-defined hop flavor and aroma distinguish this classic beer. American-Style Pale Ales are amongst this country’s most distinctive brews. Few beer drinkers can pass up the flowery, slightly dry yet full-bodied flavor of this popular beer. Four separate additions of British hop varieties mingle in the brew kettle to create it’s intriguing and assertive hoppiness, and the age-old “dry-hopping” method using our own locally grown hops during fermentation tops Pearl Street Pale Ale off with spicy and floral hop aromatics. Silver Medal Winner at the World Beer Championship, 2003. Available on draught year ‘round.
Food Pairings: The robust bitterness of this beer can hold its own with spicy foods, while helping to cleanse the palette after rich, creamy dishes. The citrus hop flavors go exceptionally well with any dishes using cilantro, such as Mexican salsas and pasta.
El Hefe Bavarian Style Hefeweizen
Brewed with a combination of wheat and barley, weiss beers are among the most distinctive ales made in the world. With a light palate with a rich body and fruity tones, weiss beers are enjoyed both as transition beers and as a special treat for enthusiasts. El Hefe combines wheat, Munich malt and American 2-Row malt. This Bavarian-style wheat beer is unfiltered and is traditionally served with a wedge of lemon. Lemon squeezed over a glass of El Hefe contrasts nicely with the clove and banana scents. The Weinstephan yeast that we use really gives El Heffe a classic Bavarian appeal. Available on draught year ‘round.
That’s What I’m Talkin’ ’bout Organic Rolled Oat Stout!
Chocked full ‘o organic rolled oats, chocolate malt and black malt for a black body and a mocha brown head. Backed up with American and British hops, this beer is full-flavored yet superbly drinkable. Served slightly warmer, this stout will entice you with layers of subtle flavors.
Food pairings: Think hearty foods — meat dishes with gravy, barbecue, shepherd’s pie, stew. Oysters are also ideal. Both this stout and the brown ale will stand up to stronger cheeses such as sharp cheddar and blue. Also excellent with chocolate and fudge based desserts and appetizers.
Dankenstein Imperial India Pale Ale (Limited Release)
Brewed with a monster mix of pure barley malts and stitched together with an insane amount of the stinkiest hops we could find, the frightful concoction is determined to be quite dank. It is quadruple-hopped in the brewkettle and fermented on even more hops. This is one of our famous rotating house beers that had previously only been available in our Tasting Room but was made available in bottles in 2009.
Food Pairings: With it’s potent hop profile and full, malty body, the Dank is well matched with strong flavored foods such as aged cheeses and pickled foods. The brewmaster enjoys pairing this beer with spiced sausages and capers. But he’s kind of weird.
