Description: Copper, hazy, orange in color. Mild & hoppy, but with bright, juicy flavors of tangerine, pineapple, mango, and something lemony.

Description: Bright Amber Winter Warmer with toasted nutty malt flavors and seasonal spices like cinnamon, clove and nutmeg.
Description: Ok, ONE more of ours, but it’s a collaboration that we do FOR N.C. BEER MONTH! This roasty and toasty delicious brew incorporates Stump Sound Oysters from our great state – or at least our coast. The oysters are first shucked. The shells are pressure washed and added to the mash, which gives the beer a chalky, yet silky mouthfeel. The meat from the bushel of oysters is added to the end of the boil and the result is a rich, roasty stout with a slightly briny finish.
