Flavor swoops in (cue EAGLE SCREAM), grabs you by the face and flies you through the hop rainbow. At the peak of the ride it swoops back to earth and gently drops you back on your bar stool where you are refreshed, excited and ready to ride again. It’s hoppy, bold and American.
Our Belgian-Style Golden Ale opens with a fruity nose and rounded sweetness that compose a pale and balanced beer. Hallertau hops lend a hint of spice that balances the aroma and flavor of orchard fruit. Similar to our Belgian Tripel, but with a lighter body and a crisper finish, it is the perfect introduction to the family of Belgian beers renowned for their complexity and delicacy.
Armory XPA was the first brew out of our Portland Pub, and it’s remained a fan favorite over the years. This Experimental Pale Ale boasts beautiful caramel flavor balanced by a bitter twist of Nugget and Northern Brewer hops with a big citrus kick coming from the Citra, Cascade and Centennial hops.

This American-style I.P.A. stands head and shoulders above its hoppy brethren, blending pale and honey malts to balance the palate without interfering in your herbal reverie, and creating a new American classic.
"Plums are a diverse group of species, somewhere between 19 and 40 depending on who you ask. We are only concerned with what we consider the best to brew with Prunus cocomiloa. The Italian plum has beautiful dark skin color and the flesh is perfect for fermentation. We'll add pure plums directly to the fermenter where they will add another fermentable component their residual sugar. The beer will be dry, and have a sweetness derived mainly from the type of malts we use.
Particularly tasty with chocolate desserts, roasted or smoked foods, barbecu, Gruyre cheese.
Easy IPA is a light-bodied brew huge citrus notes upfront that blend into stone fruit (think apricot and peach) softness. Biscuit malt notes float in the background as it finishes crisp and refreshing.
