A Taste Of Alpha Hop Society

Released 2021

Peanut Butter & Jelly Blonde

A blonde ale with malted oats and wheat malt provides the bready, biscuity foundation for a jammy 10-month transformation inside tawny port barrels. Raspberry puree blends with a late addition of natural peanut butter extract for a smooth sipper. Raspberry pops on the nose, and peanut butter shows up as it warms.

Released 2020

Moist Coconut

Hey, it’s an accurate name; this beer is a spoonful of coconut cream pie. We absolutely packed Four Roses barrels with toasted coconut, sprinkled in some New Zealand vanilla bean powder, and piped in a stout brewed with lactose and its own dose of toasted coconut. The flavor is full, and the finish is clean.

Released 2019

Farmhouse Peach Saison

We sent 150 pounds of Estate peaches swimming in 500-liter puncheons. The oak was filled with Saison we fermented with a yeast called Saisonstein’s Monster, a hybrid of French and Belgian strains. Peach is prominent on the nose with flashes of peppery spice, while the flavor is juicy and full, like a rowdy mimosa.
