Hoptimum 2017 - Triple IPA

This reimagined Hoptimum is our hoppiest beer yet, providing a blend of tropical and citrus hop aroma that delivers a refined yet aggressive character.

Hop & Sour

This zesty beer was dry-hopped with a massive amount of citrus and fruity hops for an extremely hoppy—but not bitter—exploration of flavor.

Barrel-Aged Madeira Quad with Cherries

This very limited beer is a blend of two vintages of our Ovila Quad—one straight Belgian-style ale and the other with tart cherries. Additional layers of complexity are achieved through aging in oak barrels used to mature Madeira, the fortified wine hailing from the Portuguese island of the same name. The result is a decadent and flavorful blend of cocoa, fig, cherry and raisin notes with hints of wood, caramel, and burnt sugar flavors from barrel aging.

Ovila Abbey White

Treat your senses as well as your palate. With its silky body, zesty malt character and delicate lemony spice notes, our unfiltered Abbey White Ale is an indulgence to be enjoyed all year long.

Barrel-Aged Import/Export Stout

Export Stouts were traditionally a more robust version of a flagship beer, amped-up to survive the journey overseas. Ours made the journey from our barrel room to our taproom, (which is technically an import) but what a trip it was. Rich, roasty, and brewed with cocoa nibs added directly to the barrel, Import / Export is the perfect beer for shaking the chill off a cool day, or for killing time, waiting for your friend Art Vandelay to arrive.

BC #191 There's Always One

These Beer Campers threw in Mosaic, Experimental hop #520, Nelson Sauvin, Mandarina hops into our Hop Torpedo to add a generous amount of hop flavor to this crisp, golden IPA.
