Self-Defined Style: 
German-style Kölsch
Strength (ABV): 
4.9% ABV
Bitterness (IBU): 
20 IBU

A true German-style Kölsch. Originally brewed in Cologne, this beer is light yet has a sweet malty body that is balanced by a complex, citrus hop character. Multiple additions of German Hallertauer hops are used to achieve this delicate flavor. We use a special Kölsch yeast, an ale yeast that ferments at lager temperatures, to yield the slightly fruity, clean flavor of this beer. Fancy Lawnmower Beer is a world class brew yet light enough to be enjoyed by Texans after strenuous activities, like mowing the lawn.

Saint Arnold Fancy Lawnmower Beer is best consumed at 35-45° Fahrenheit.

Best With: 
Blackened fish, salads, & grilled veggies.

Brooklyn Brown Ale

Product - Brooklyn Brown
Brewed By: 
Brooklyn
Self-Defined Style: 
American Brown Ale
Strength (ABV): 
5.6% ABV

Northern English brown ales tend to be strong and dry, while southern English brown ales are milder and sweeter. Brooklyn Brown Ale combines the best of those classic styles and then adds an American accent in the form of a firm hop character and roasty palate. A blend of six malts, some of them roasted, give this beer its deep russet-brown color and complex malt flavor, fruity, smooth and rich, with a caramel, chocolate and coffee background. Generous late hopping brings forward a nice hop aroma to complete the picture.

Best With: 
Brooklyn Brown Ale is particularly good with steaks, burgers, stews and barbecue, where it can put its caramel flavors to work with the caramelized flavors in the meat. It's also excellent with venison, ham and roasted pork, which engage the depth of malt character. After dinner, it's the perfect accompaniment to well-aged cheddar, Gouda and Gruyere cheeses.

Harpoon IPA

Product - Harpoon Ipa
Brewed By: 
Harpoon
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.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Product - Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Brewed By: 
Sierra Nevada
Self-Defined Style: 
American Pale Ale
Strength (ABV): 
5.6% ABV
Bitterness (IBU): 
38 IBU

Our most popular beer, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, is a delightful interpretation of a classic style. It has a deep amber color and an exceptionally full-bodied, complex character. Generous quantities of premium Cascade hops give the Pale Ale its fragrant bouquet and spicy flavor.

Best With: 
While we think Pale Ale tastes great with everything, its assertive hop flavor goes especially well with spicy cuisine, since its clean flavors counterbalance the richness of many hot dishes. It also goes well with starters and salads, its spicy complexity stimulating both appetites and conversation.
