Blonde pairs the spice and depth of Old World hops with fresh, citrusy notes from the New World, rounded out with subtle maltiness and bright acidity. The hop flavor and aroma are unmistakable, but silky smooth and with a clean, crisp finish. Blonde is always drinkable, yet remarkably complex. This is the perfect beer for an afternoon session, or pair it up with bold flavors like spicy Thai or smoky BBQ.
Pale delivers astonishing hop taste and aroma without wearing out your palate. We have specially crafted Pale to blend nuanced European malts with delicious American hops for a beer with bountiful flavor and a surprisingly crisp finish. Goes perfectly with just about everything from a cheeseburger to a cheese plate.
Black starts with a bouquet of tropical hop aromas, builds up a rich flavor of fresh roasted malts, and finishes pleasantly dry and refreshing. Each layer of flavor remains distinct and discernible as it adds to the overall depth and complexity. This beer stands its own against backyard steaks and gourmet burgers, and goes remarkably well with raw oysters.
Our take on the Grisette (a centuries-old Belgian and French saison) honors the heritage of the style while adding a subtle modern hoppiness. The result is a beer that seamlessly blends the traditional estery yeast and dry finish with an American hop flavor. Saison tastes great with a rustic charcuterie spread or Chicken Provençal.

Everything Happens for a Reason Named for the modest grey dresses popular with aspirational young women of the Belle Epoque, this bottle-conditioned ale celebrates simple elegance. We begin with our bright, rustic Saison and add Reason Beer's house blend of Brettanomyces prior to bottling. This beer can be enjoyed immediately but will continue to evolve over the course of a year or more. Store at room temperature to develop rich fruit aromas, including grilled pineapple, and subtle notes of earth, funk, and fresh-cut hay.
Reason Beer's luxuriant porter was first brewed as a birthday present for our brewer's wife. Strange Currencies is a decadent blend of dark chocolate and sweet caramel with mild roasty notes. It packs an amazing amount of flavor into a beer that finishes clean and pairs perfectly with the cooler winter weather.
This delicious IPA starts with a subtle malt backbone and adds an incredible amount of hop flavor for a beer that delivers big bright tones of citrus, pine, and melon with a super clean and refreshing finish.
Brewing with creativity and balance is our Standard Operating Procedure, and New SOP celebrates this commitment. Generous dry hop additions create a deeply-layered palate of tropical fruit and floral flavor with restrained bitterness. This perfectly balanced double IPA pours a beautiful clear golden color with a brilliant white sudsy head. New SOP is clean, smooth, and almost dangerously drinkable.
