Bear Republic
Self-Defined Style: 
India Pale Ale
Strength (ABV): 
7.0% ABV
Bitterness (IBU): 
69 IBU

This is a full bodied beer using American grains. The goal was to create a base for showing off the unique floral qualities of two Pacific Northwest hops, Columbus and Cascade. Columbus is a new hybrid High Alpha Acid hop used mostly for bittering, but used heavily as an aromatic in this bold brew. Cascade is the balance that ties the malt and bittering hops together. It is a true specialty ale and is our brewer's statement on this style.

Amber Ale
Strength (ABV): 
5.5% ABV

Anyone remember the grocery store cooler back before it turned into a kaleidoscopic fantasy world of beer options? You pretty much had two choices: Regular or Light. In 1989, when we brewed our first batch of Full Sail Amber, not only was it the first Amber ale here in Beer Mecca (aka Oregon) -- it was the first craft beer to go into a bottle. And two things became immediately apparent. It wasn't Regular and it sure as heck wasn't Light. Our Amber is a sweet, malty, medium-bodied ale with a spicy, floral hop finish. It's brewed with 2-row Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts.

Self-Defined Style: 
India Pale Ale
Strength (ABV): 
6.5% ABV

The British colonists who once visited India invented India Pale Ale. But we seriously doubt they ever enjoyed one after a day of fullblown kiteboarding. What a shame. Generously hopped to 60 IBU's in the classic style, our IPA is a real thirst quencher. It has a full, malty body and there's even a hint of fresh citrus to it. Perfect after your favorite water sport. Even if that happens to be the grueling drag-the-poolside-lounge-chair-into-the-sun event.

Self-Defined Style: 
Premium American Lager
Strength (ABV): 
5.1% ABV

How big a bummer was Prohibition? As if taking everyone's brew away wasn't bad enough, hundreds of little independent breweries that once made super tasty beers basically got worked. And when they went out of business, America not only lost the breweries, it lost what American beer used to taste like. Session is our way of bringing back the pre-Prohibition American Lager. It's an all-malt Continental Pilsner brewed with American and European hops, so it's flavorful, refreshing, and has a touch of that import-style taste.

Brewed By: 
Great Divide
Self-Defined Style: 
Double IPA
Strength (ABV): 
9.1% ABV

Hoppier, maltier and with more alcohol than a standard IPA, Hercules Double IPA definitely is not for the faint of heart. Hercules Double IPA is, however, an elixir fit for the gods. A brash but creamy wonder, Hercules pours a deep orange-coppery color, forming substantial lace in the glass. Hercules Double IPA delivers a huge amount of piney, floral, and citrusy hop aroma and flavor from start to finish. A hefty backbone of nutty, toffee-like malt character balances Hercules' aggressive, punchy hop profile.

Best With: 
Our friends Kate and David at Denver's finest artesian cheese and exotic food shop, The Truffle, find Hercules Double IPA the perfect complement to the following specialty cheeses: Epoisses - a runny and rich washed-rind French cow's milk cheese, Redhawk - a smooth and creamy American washed-rind cow's milk cheese, and Livarot - a golden yellow, semi-soft, pungent French cow's milk cheese. Other delicacies to enjoy alongside Hercules include grilled fish tacos or grilled scallops, and chips and guacamole.

Old Ruffian is a hefty, hop-forward Barley Wine. Seemingly mellow at first sniff, with its subtle fruit aromas and complex caramel sweetness, this deep mahogany-hued ale quickly shows its true character marked by bold hop flavors and massive hop bitterness. Old Ruffian's rich, slightly creamy, caramel malt mouth feel balances its grapefruit, pine, and floral hop flavors, working wonders on your palate.

Best With: 
We savor Old Ruffian Barley Wine with Stilton, a creamy, rich, British blue cheese, served with walnuts and dried figs or dried tart cherries.

Self-Defined Style: 
India Pale Ale
Strength (ABV): 
5.9% ABV

The high hopping of Harpoon IPA is not only noticeable in the nose but especially in the finish. The lingering bitter finish of this beer is not harsh or astringent, but crisp and pronounced. This is created, in part, by dry hopping - a technique that involves adding fresh hops to the conditioning beer to provide a fresh hop aroma.

Best With: 
Grilled seafood, Thai food, spicy chicken.

Crystal is the only hop used in brewing Brutal and it provides a massive amount of aroma without dry-hopping.

Gratefully dedicated to the Rogue in each of us. In the early 1990s Dead Guy Ale was created as a private tap sticker to celebrate the Mayan Day of the Dead (November 1st, All Souls Day) for Casa U Betcha in Portland, Oregon. The Dead Guy design proved popular and was incorporated into a bottled product a few years later with Maierbock as the elixir. Strangely, the association with the Grateful Dead is pure coincidence. Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogue's proprietary "PacMan" ale yeast.

Best With: 
This amber colored ale pairs nicely with brothy soups, salted almonds, game birds and seafood. This brew also offers a nice companion to cheeses and fruits.

Deserving the title "Emperor of Ales" (unlike the bourgeois "King of Beers"), Imperial is the strongest and fullest of all stouts. Imperials originally were brewed with large quantities of hops and a high alcohol content to withstand long, un-refrigerated journeys. Rogue Imperial Stout, considered the high end of stouts, is made of 2-row Great Western Harrington & Klages, Hugh Baird XLT-80, Black, Munich and Chocolate Malts; Willamette, Cascade and Chinook hops; rolled oats; and two secret ingredients. Unfiltered and unfined, Imperial Stout is best when aged for one year.

Rogue XS Old Crustacean Barleywine

Substyle - Barley Wine
Brewed By: 
Rogue
Self-Defined Style: 
Barley Wine
Strength (ABV): 
11.5% ABV

In Britain, seasonal brews for winter are high in alcohol, robust, malty, and dark. The two main styles of these brews are Old Ales and Barleywines. As the name suggests, barleywines are similar to wines in alcohol and need aging but are derived from grain, not the grape. Rogue's barleywine is described by beer expert Stuart Ramsey as: "A masterful, intense creation from brewer John Maier....it has achieved a depth and complexity usually associated with well-ages strong ales. I hope the brewery bottles some before it disappears." We call it the cognac of beers.

Best With: 
Primarily thought of as a digestif, it turns out that barley wines have an affinity to lamb, venison and wild boar. Classic cheeses such as English and Vermont cheddars as well as aged Gruyeres from Switzerland. Caramelized desserts as crème brûlée and crepes as well as a good vanilla ice cream can finish a wonderful evening of food and beer.

Stout
Strength (ABV):

Stout was first introduced by Guinness in Ireland as "Extra Stout" (a stronger version of their Porter). Later, the stronger Imperial and Double Stouts emerged. Sweet, Milk, and Oatmeal Stouts are English adaptations with less alcohol and less bitter then the dry Irish Stouts. Victorian England recognized Oatmeal Stouts nutritional value and it is traditionally the drink of choice for nursing mothers and athletes. Rogue's Shakespeare Stout is ebony in color, a rich creamy head and a mellow chocolate aftertaste.

A rich supple entry leads to an off-dry medium-full body of tangy raisins and citrus marmalade, bittersweet chocolate, and mild spice flavors. It finishes with a long nutty, fruity fade.

INTENSE AND WARMING, A MEAL IN A BOTTLE. Brewed since the 13th Century, these malty lagers are still some of the biggest and most sophisticated beers around. Bock is the German word for "billy goat" and pictures of goats graze the labels on many bocks and double bocks. We shied away from the goats on our label, but we certainly didn’t shy away from the use of malted barley in this beer.

Best With: 
The intense flavors of Double Bock go well with rich meats like duck, quail or pork tenderloin. You can also match the rich sweet flavors with some hearty desserts like cheesecake or crème brulee. But in all honesty, you could just have a pint on its own for dessert and be completely satisfied.

Anniversaries are important. They are benchmarks to help us gauge where we stand, and more importantly, they help us to see where we have come from. Each fall, we like to celebrate our anniversary by releasing a very special beer. A beer that represents our past while looking forward to our future. For the past 28 years, we at Sierra Nevada have had a commitment to using the finest raw ingredients, and the freshest, most flavorful hops in all of our award winning ales and lagers. Our Anniversary Ale is no exception.

Best With: 
This IPA style ale pairs well with assertive aged cheeses such as Pedrozzo Dairy's Northern Gold or Aged Farmstead Cheddar from New York. Anniversary Ale is the perfect match for the spicy dishes from Southeast Asia and India. The richness of our own west coast wild salmon is also a fine balance. The orange and barley candy notes of Anniversary Ale accent fine bittersweet chocolates for the perfect dessert.

The long, cold nights of winter are a little brighter with Celebration Ale. Wonderfully robust and rich, Celebration Ale is dry-hopped for a lively, intense aroma. Brewed especially for the holidays, it is perfect for a festive gathering or for a quiet evening at home.

Best With: 
With an ale as big as Celebration, you need a dish assertive enough to hold its own. Rich meats such as prime rib, lamb, or wild fowl underscore Celebration's huge aroma, making a wonderful holiday meal. Intense, earthy pastas also work well - try goat cheese ravioli, a rich fettuccine, or gnocchi with Gorgonzola cheese sauce.

Yuengling Original Black & Tan is a pioneer brand that models a traditional English Half & Half. Introduced in 1986, Yuengling produced one of the first hand-crafted draft blends to lead this style of American brewing. Black & Tan combines our popular Dark Brewed Porter and Premium Beer to create a brew that is rich and dark in color, with a well balanced flavor that finishes smooth and satisfying. It has a faint sweetness with hints of caramel and coffee from the dark roasted malts. One sip and you'll appreciate how Yuengling raised the bar with our Original Black & Tan.
