Valdez: This robust Coffee Stout is a mouthful of flavor! A dark, roasty grain bill stands as the backdrop for a galaxy of coffee aroma and flavor, made possible by local organic bean roasters Dynamite Roastery. A Pisgah fan favorite, Valdez is brewed bi-annually and never lasts as long as the flavor. 6.5% ABV

Red Devil: This 9% Belgian-style ale was originally brewed to commemorate Pisgah’s 200th batch. Packed with over one pound of cherries and raspberries per gallon, the Red Devil balances delicately between tart and not-too-sweet. pisgah-logopisgah-logopisgah-logo

Vanilla Porter (New!): We have taken our classic Porter recipe, added some appropriate “umph” in the already diverse roasted grain bill, and then finished on raw Vanilla Beans from Madagascar. The result is a full-bodied brew of dark color, with subtle sweetness noticed on the first approach while the calming Vanilla flavors ease the palate before the roasted notes fill out the flavor profile. Salud!

10th Anniversary Cosmos (Vintage bottles from the cellar!): Dark and mysterious, this Pisgah beer is a tribute to Belgian tradition and our home brew roots. Combining the rich flavor of the Baltic Porter with the subtleness of a special Belgian yeast strain, the Cosmos is born.

10th Anniversary Double IPA: Using nothing but whole-cone Citra and Simcoe hops, which is accompanied by a medium bodied grain-bill, the Pisgah DIPA boasts an 8.1% ABV and comes in at around 120+ IBUs. Once poured, the nose is immediately greeted with tropical notes of pineapple and grapefruit. A pleasant bitterness ensues moments later as this ale approaches the end of the palate, while the ale visually pleases with a medium-light color and appropriate head. pisgah-logo

Thursday Bruisin’ Tasting 12/3: Green Man Brewery & Holly King Release

Posted Dec 02, 2015 in Beer, Beer Art, Breweries, Events, Limited Release, New this week, Rarerities, Seasonals

HollyKing-01-400x400Join us Thursday from 6 – 8 pm for a celebration of Green Man Brewery! We’ll have samples of the full Green Man lineup as well as the Forester Winter Stout and the release of Holly King Bourbon Barrel Aged Holiday ale.

**As a special way to say “Thank you” we will be sharing rare, sour, and limited special releases from the past throughout the evening!**

ESB: A malty amber ale boasting rich toasted and caramel flavors, Green Man ESB is one of our award-winning signature brews. Our blend of authentic British malts and hops creates a nutty aroma, full body, and a sweet finish. Prepare yourself for a truly exceptional interpretation of a traditional English style.

IPA: Green Man India Pale Ale is delectably hoppy with a properly balanced body. Generous hop additions give it a wonderful bitterness and pleasant floral nose, while our combination of traditional British malts creates a rich, satisfying flavor and alluring copper color. This authentic English-style IPA is our flagship ale.

Porter: Dark, full-bodied, and rich in flavor, Green Man Porter is wonderfully easy to drink. It offers a creamy, smooth mouthfeel and finishes with distinctive chocolate notes. This traditionally crafted, award-winning British-style Porter, like a true rock star, enjoys a legendary following.

Forester Winter Stout: This time of year demands a bold flavor. Green Man’s beloved stout delivers. An impressive blend of roasted black and chocolate malts creates an opaque color and alluring depth. A distinctive blend of hops allows the balanced flavor to shine. The Forester personifies a trustworthy companion for winter’s unpredictable darkness.

Holly King: This rich holiday ale is perfect to warm away the winter chill. Extended barrel aging delivers unrestrained oak and bourbon flavors. Tasty hints of chocolate, vanilla and tobacco round out the complex notes. The Holly King personifies the nature of the Green Man in all his winter glory.
