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
