Joni

Barrel-aged Sour No. 2

5.5% ABV

The make Joni, the second in our series of barrel-aged fruited sours, Brewmaster Eric Johnson started with his house golden ale base. It was primary fermented clean in stainless steel before transferred to Bordeaux wine barrels and inoculation with souring bacteria and aged for over a year. 40 pounds of cherries were added to each barrel and aged further. Each barrel produces unique flavor characteristics and only a few were hand-selected to create the tart, light, beautiful final beer, Joni.

southern-symphony.jpg

Southern Symphony

Southern Symphony – A Collaboration with Cigar City Brewing

5.8% ABV

Southern Symphony is a barrel-aged Brett beer. Three different base lager batches brewed with three different hop schedules and then aged in three kinds of barrels (wine, gin, and spirit) with the addition of two native Georgia grapes, scuppernongs and muscadines – one grape variety per barrel. Forty-five barrels, nearly every one unique. Oh, and the fruit additions were fermented with two different strains of brettanomyces. Hello, funky. A total of 38 of the 45 barrels made the final blend, with perhaps thirty of those barrels being a unique combination of inputs.

And that final blend? Imagine a rich, woody white wine with all the beautiful funkiness of a brett beer. It’s a one-of-a-kind. It will only be made this one time and we are grateful Cigar City Brewing and brewmaster Wayne Wambles for working with us to create such a tribute to creativity and innovation.

Each barrel produces unique flavor characteristics and only a few were selected and blended together to create Mavis.

WH_HEIGHT-117-2.jpg

Height of Civilization


English-style Barley Wine Ale

12% ABV | 50 IBU

We brew our Civilization ale with dried Prussian lemons, hibiscus, tart cherries and craberries, and finish it with cocoa nibs. We couldn’t resist the idea of taking all that complexity a step further and aged some of it in Dulce Vida tequila barrels. The result may just be the Height of Civilization.

WH_DIONYSUS-71-Low-2.jpg

Dionysus Cuvee

Wild Ale

10.5% ABV | 24 IBU

Dionysus Cuvee is a barrel-aged wild ale based on our Eschaton quadrupel, blended with five additional unique barrel-aged wild ales. Oak and wine notes combine with a mild tartness and the underlying sweetness from the quad base to create a delicate yet big-flavored beer.

 
WH_FUNK-79-2.jpg

Funkenrauch

Smoked Wild Ale

7% ABV | 7 IBU

A truly new beer style is a rare thing. Funkenrauch is born of brewmaster Eric Johnsons’s obsession with understanding beer on a molecular level. A 100% smoked malt beer shouldn’t be so bright and light – but the addition of Drie Fonteinen brettanomyces eats up much of the smoky phenols that could have overwhelmed the palate, leaving behind a sour smoked ale that is unlike any we’ve ever tried.

sexy-grav-1030x687.jpg

Gravitational Wave

Russian Imperial Stout

14% ABV

‘Grav’ is our Russian Imperial Stout brewed with smoked cocoa nibs from Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate and a generous portion of fresh raspberries. This is a big, complex beer– as decadent as the universe is mysterious.
