Winter Warmer

Wee Heavy | ABV 8%

Based on a Wee Heavy Scotch Ale recipe, this deep mahogany beer is the perfect pint for the cold of winter.  A soft, warming alcohol presence underlies a full body with a chewy, malty sweetness at its core. The addition of roasted barley also contributes a slightly toasted nose and finish. 

Rush River Brewing


Altbier | ABV 8.5%

An ancient style from the Rhineland, Altbiers are ales that were virtually wiped out by European lagers in the 1800s. Uber Alt is a much stronger version of the traditional Dusseldorf Altbiers. We ramp up the grain bill with Pilsen, Munich and Caramel malts to produce a rich, malt-forward German ale. 

Rush River Brewing


Wheated Bourbon Barrel-Aged Alt | ABV 10%

Being a sweet, malty, high gravity ale, we feel that our Uber Alt makes a pretty good base beer for aging in a Bourbon barrel.  We got our hands on a few Wheated Bourbon barrels, so we filled them up and put them up to rest for a few months. The result is a smooth, caramel-rich beer with hints of maple and vanilla accompanied by a touch of boozy heat.
