Imperial Black IPA
Jungle Trail is a juicy and dank American Imperial Black IPA brewed and dry hopped with Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops plus zest with Indian River Duncan White Grapefruit from The Barnes Family.
This is an ultra-complex treatment of "Black Tar," our base Imperial Stout that has previously only been available at our food/beer pairing dinners at the OIB Tavern. Black Orchid is always barrel-aged with vanilla beans. The barrels we procured for this batch are the French oak, former ruby port casks in which Angel’s Envy bourbon is conditioned for several months after spending many years in American white oak. This batch of Black Orchid was treated with Ugandan and Mexican vanilla beans, a blend of single-origin cocoa beans from Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Ivory Coast & Venezuela, deeply roasted hazelnuts and pecans, and locally roasted Colombian and Honduran coffee beans. The result is a viscous, velvety and totally unfiltered explosion of aroma and flavor. Fact: Vanilla beans are derived from orchids in the genus "Vanilla," native to Mexico. The name "Vanilla" comes from the Spanish word "Vainilla", meaning "little pod". Vanilla beans are also referred to as pods or "Black Flower", after the mature bean, which shrivels and turns black shortly after it is picked.

Beachside is a light-bodied, super tart, refreshing berlinerweisse. We kettle-soured this beer with lactobacillus (a "friendly" strain of bacteria that is also commonly used as a probiotic). The grain bill consists of equal parts pearl malt, wheat and spelt. The hop bill consists of a modest measure of Mandarina Bavaria hops. Inspired by a centuries old German tradition, we prepared flavored syrups to balance out the tartness and provide an extra layer of flavor and complexity. However, instead of using the traditional woodruff-flavored and raspberry syrups preferred in Germany, our syrups were made in-house from locally sourced ingredients... -Cherry/Key-Lime: Made with Key Lime juice and zest (sourced from Birdie-Hogan farms), tart cherry juice and sugar. -Ruby Red Grapefruit: Made with Ruby Red grapefruit juice and zest (sourced from Schacht Groves) and sugar.
Southern Brown Ale
Nuth'n Fancy is a Southern Brown Ale we gave a tip of the hat to one our favorite southern rock bands. Brewed with an abundance of oatmeal and chocolate malt, our house ale yeast delivers aromas of roasted nuts, coffee, and caramel in this beer. Deliciously smooth mouthfeel and moderately dry finish.
Russian Imperial Stout
This is our base Imperial Stout brewed with vanilla beans, roasted pecans and hazelnuts, cocoa nibs and locally roasted coffee beans. These adjuncts spent only a brief time in the secondary fermentation of this beer, so all the components are very subtle.
