WOLKENBRÄU German for “clouds brewing”, it’s a German-American Lager with imported Nobel hops & German pilsner malt, & a small amount of American grains for a crisp finish. (Gold Medal 2016 NC Brewer’s Cup,Silver Medal 2018 Beer Army) 4.5% ABV, 21 IBU
PRECIPITATION Authentic German-style pilsner. This sparkling beer showcases a prominent hop bitterness with a mellow malt sweetness. 5.2% ABV, 28 IBU
EL HEFE Traditional Bavarian wheat beer with hints of banana & clove. Intentionally cloudy to highlight the wheat, which constitutes approximately 50% of the grain bill. (Bronze Medal 2017 & 2018 American Brewers Palate, Bronze Medal 2018 Beer Army) 4.9% ABV, 12 IBU
CLOUDS 9 Our take on a Strong Belgium Golden, it has a bubblegum aroma from the Belgian Farmhouse yeast. In true Belgian fashion, this beer walks the line between residual sweetness & an alcohol punch, which makes it easy to forget you’re drinking a 9% beer. 9% ABV, 30 IBU
HOP J.A.M. Our NC style IPA (yeah, we just made that up) is dry-hopped twice with a generous combination of Jarrylo, Amarillo, & Mosaic hops. This IPA is all about fruity hop flavor & aroma, with very little bitterness. (Bronze Medal 2018 American Brewers Palate) 6.3% ABV, 45 IBU

PAST SPECIAL RELEASES
SWEET POTATO PORTER 6.2% ABV, 37 IBU
Tired of Pumpkin beer? We baked 100 pounds of North Carolina grown sweet potatoes, and then used a blow torch to caramelize some of the sugars. This robust porter has a medium body, light roast flavor and a clean finish.
DOPPLER BOCK 7.5% ABV, 20 IBU
A big beer with a wonderful chocolate and toffee malt flavors. The Dopplebock style is attributed to German monks, who brewed this liquid bread to sustain them through periods of fasting.
42nd STREET OYSTER STOUT 5.8% ABV, 42 IBU
This beer is a collaboration with the 42nd Street Oyster Bar, which is located across the street from our Raleigh restaurant. The Oyster bar supplied the oyster shells and brine that went into the kettle. The resulting beer is a full bodied American Stout with just a hint saltiness.
FIRST IN FLIGHT 3.4% ABV, 3 IBU
Our Berliner Weisse was kettle soured for 48 hours using live lactobacillus cultures. Referred to as “the Champagne of the North”, this tart wheat beer is extremely refreshing. We also offer this beer premixed with various fruit purees.
