MellowThey have been called session ales, lawnmower beers, and crossovers. These beers are strong on flavor, low in alcohol and tame in hop bitterness. At Hopshire we offer fruit beers, wheat beers, lighter ales and light lagers to quench your thirst. Grab a growler or two of these drinkable brews.
Raspberry Wheat Ale - 4.8 abv, 20 IBU
Nothing says summer like the smell and taste of fresh raspberries. We have captured that flavor in Brambles raspberry wheat beer. This beer uses malt grown locally by Thor Orschener in Newfield and nearly 50 pounds of pure raspberry puree. Unfiltered and no preservatives like all of the Hopshire beers. Enjoy!
7.8 abv, 30 IBU
A malty brown ale fermented with Scottish Edinburgh yeast. Flaked oats and six different barley malts including chocolate, dark crystal and amber malts are used in this rich tasting ale. Lightly hopped to let out the sweetness of the malt. A fun beer to make and a fun beer to drink.
Irish Dry Stout
4.5 abv, 32 IBUs
True to the Irish heritage of this beer style we have used 40 pounds of unmalted, roasted barley in the grain bill. Roasted barley provides the nose and taste of dark roasted coffee, then this dark ale is lightly hopped with New York Willamette and British Kent Goldings varieties. You will bend over backwards enjoying the Barley Stone.
5.0 abv, 45 IBUs
To hop or not to hop….., This IPA is refreshing and lower in ABV so you can enjoy more of it. Only light grains, pale, Vienna and Pilsen malt are used. The hops are a combination of west coast Mosaic and Cascade from Lyke Road Farm in T-burg for both the boil and dry hopping. The taste is bitter sweet with a fruitiness contributed by the Mosaic hops. Hop on your lawnmower and put a pint in the cup holder.
8.0 ABV, 20 IBU
This brew is a brown lager with a light body and smoothness that makes it very drinkable. While it drinks like a light beer this is strong at 8% abv; hence the name, Sneaky Weasel. The grain bill includes Pilsen, Munich and wheat malt along with chocolate malt that imparts a mahogany color. Watch out for the weasel!
India Pale Ale
7.5 abv, 74 IBU
A hop farm needs a big American IPA. We start with a solid malt base of pale and caramel malts and then add hops (a lot of them!) five times during the boil. We don’t stop there. We add to the serving tank in a process we call “Laced with hops”. Hopheads – find your NearVarna.
Belgian Dark Ale
8.0 ABV, 20 IBUs
This rich tasting Belgian ale will give you subtle tastes of raisin, peppercorns, licorice, and caramel blended in a hearty brown ale. The brewing grains are Pilsen, dark crystal, Vienna and Special B. We also add 50 lbs of dark Belgian candy syrup to the boil and a small, but important bag of spices. Lightly hopped with Sterling hops. This is not a normal Belgian ale…..it is Abbey Normale.
