Hops: Columbus, Hallertau
Malt: Pale, Roasted Barley, Pale Chocolate Malt, Flaked Oats, Victory, Rye, Flaked Rye
Based on our year-round Rye Stout, this special-release Imperial version boasts a larger Rye percentage and more complicated grain bill. The Imperial Rye Stout is our annual Anniversary beer so we like to have a little fun with it! This year, we aged and conditioned the finished beer with a large amount of White Ash and Cherrywood. The result? A full, smooth, rounded beer with the spiciness of rye malt!

The color of this CDA is a pleasant, rosy-black with moderate smokiness and mild astringency from the roasted malts. The extra addition of Blood Orange blends well with the dark malt and wheat. Slightly more bitter than an average CDA, the hop character is exhibited by the piney, fruity aromas of the Columbus and Palisade dry hop.
- 10. Gin and Tonic Gose4.3% 4.3% ABV | 9 IBUs
Malt: Pale, White Wheat, Flaked Barley
Inspired by (but not brewed under the influence of) the classic Gin and Tonic cocktail. This refreshing and moderately tart kettle-soured Gose was cold-steeped with botanicals, lending a pleasant, citrusy flavor and piney aroma. As refreshing as the real thing and incredibly quaffable!

- 14. Guest: Locust Cider Chili Pineapple5% 5% ABV
Ancho and Alleppo Chilis are responsible for the spicy finish. But come on, you want to drink your cider. So this one is not too spicy, just enough to remind you the chilis are there. The fruity chilis are an amazing flavor complement to the the Washington apples and pineapples.
