Oro del Barril
[oh-roh] [dehl] [bah-RReel]
Our very first barrel fermented brew; we’ve come together with Dobbes Family Estate to develop a beer concept demonstrating our connection and shared knowledge between these two communities. Starting with a Guava Golden base, we fermented it in Chardonnay barrels with Lees. The result is a lighter and brighter beer with pronounced notes of guava and white wine. Oro del Barril, a brew that both discerning beer drinkers and selective wine drinkers can get behind. Served in a 10 ounce pour.

This is a shout out to New Mexico, also known as The 505, or the new Mexico, or Nuevo México. We brought some Hatch green chile all the way from southern New Mexico, roasted it, and added it to the boil. The end result is sessionable, suggestively smoky, with bright pepper flavor throughout. It should be noted that this beer is far from spicy, and more aromatic.

A Latinx spin on a northwest IPA. We took an IPA and added two classic Latin American flavors of chile and tamarindo. The fresh roasted guerito chiles are a nice marriage with the hops, creating an enticing aroma that grabs you; the tamarindo cuts right through the heat and lends a mild tartness. We then added some tangerine to add sweetness and to help balance out the tartness.
