Blue Danube A complex malty aroma greets you, courtesy of melanoidin-rich Munich and Vienna malts. This style of lager originated in Vienna, Austria, but we use American Sterling hops, which provide a bit of spiciness. An exceptionally well balanced beer from start to finish. Alcohol: 5.0% ABV, Bitterness: 26 IBU.
American Special Bitter An American interpretation of the classic English ESB. U.S. Fuggle hops work together with the yeast to contribute a subtle fruitiness, and plenty of Maris Otter malt provides a biscuity background. Alcohol: 6.1% ABV, Bitterness: 40 IBU.
Call Me Lots of late additions of Cascade and Centennial hops, plus Amarillo dry hops, give this IPA a citrus-centric flavor. Alcohol: 7.1% ABV, Bitterness: 63 IBU.
Porter Hints of caramel and a roasty character accent this full-bodied beer. Our Porter has a smooth, approachable flavor that proves dark beers can be enjoyed by all. Carafa II provides the roasty, almost coffee-like flavor, while a variety of caramel malts contribute sweetness. This ale uses Summit and Sterling hops for a clean and crisp, yet complex flavor. Alcohol: 5.9% ABV, Bitterness: 40 IBU.
Comrade Warmer Our take on the classic Russian Imperial Stout. With a bit of coffee aroma up front, Comrade Warmer’s full-bodied cocoa and licorice flavor fades to a gentle alcohol warmth on the finish. Alcohol: 7.4% ABV, Bitterness: 50 IBU.

Thai Fi For this pale ale brewed with Thai basil, we took a page from the recipe book of local home brewer Mark Griffin. With basil and citrusy hops front and center in both aroma and flavor, this beer makes a great pairing with Italian or Thai food. Alcohol: 4.4% ABV, Bitterness: 50 IBU.
Kölsch Brewed in the likeness of a style unique to Cologne, Germany, where dozens of breweries produce light ales with tremendous drinkability, our take on the style is brewed with nothing more than Pilsner and Munich malts, and Sterling hops. The result is a lightly fruity but crisp and refreshing quaff. Alcohol: 4.6% ABV, Bitterness: 25 IBU.
Pils A crisp German-style Pilsner with US hops (Vanguard and Mt. Hood). The perfect beer for that Seattle summer we all know is coming any day now… Alcohol: 5.2% ABV, Bitterness: 35 IBU
Redmond Calling This IPA is loaded with citrusy, piney hop flavor thanks to plentiful late additions of Cascade, Centennial, and Bravo hops. American 2-row, Maris Otter, and Special B provide a malty counterpoint. Alcohol: 7.1% ABV, Bitterness: 70 IBU.
These beers are either annual treats or on indefinite hiatus.
Megahef This light wheat beer is heavy on the American hops. The result is a light, refreshing summer beer…with lots of hop character. Ok, so it’s not really a hef. And it’s kind of the opposite of mega. But the name was too cool to resist. Alcohol: 4.1% ABV, Bitterness: 38 IBU.
#1 Fan The recipe for this honey wheat ale was developed by the very first member in our High Frequency Society, Steve Antoch. Take one whiff of this limited edition beer and you’ll know the honey we used was 100% orange blossom. Alcohol: 6.8% ABV, Bitterness: 30 IBU.
Pump Up the Volume A blast of pumpkin pie aroma introduces you to this full-bodied and fairly malty beer. We brew it with fresh Washington pumpkin and add cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cardamom, and vanilla after fermentation. It finishes with a very subtle warmth. Alcohol: 6.8% ABV, Bitterness: 35 IBU.
Gingerbread Boy tastes a bit like its namesake. It features a little bit of ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon in the aroma and initial flavor–followed by a nice dry, roasty, chocolaty finish. Its opaque black color pairs well with our grey winter skies, and its combination of chocolate and spices makes it a great beer to sip while you watch the rain fall outside. Alcohol: 5.9% ABV, bitterness: 38 IBU
Little Czar We like to call the Little Czar a Russian “seshperial” stout. Like a traditional Russian Imperial Stout, it’s a little bit licorice and a little bit chocolate and a lot of flavor. Unlike the traditional style, it won’t knock your block off with alcohol. Alcohol: 6.4% ABV, bitterness: 50 IBU
Autumn Lager Our example of the traditional German fest bier is full bodied and has a soft, rich malty flavor. With an aroma reminiscent bread crust and a beautiful deep gold color courtesy of Vienna and Munich malts, this beer is a treat for all your senses. Alcohol: 6.3% ABV, Bitterness: 28 IBU.
Extra Mild Our own take on the classic English Mild, this beer is low in bitterness, full bodied, and packed with flavor. Malted oats give it a very light earthy aroma. Magnum hops provide just a touch of clean bitterness. Alcohol: 4.2% ABV, Bitterness: 15 IBU.
Mai Sharona Mai Sharona is a Maibock – a pale, malty, German lager style. This style traditionally served as a bridge between the dark, malty, strong beers of the winter and the pale, light, crisp beers of the summer. Mai Sharona has a bit of hop character, but is still nothing near what you would call “bitter.” Alcohol: 6% ABV, Bitterness: 23 IBU.
Mix Tape #1 – Alison Alison loves dark and roasty porters, but she also loves light and crisp pale ales. To appeal to both sides of her palate, we’ve blended our porter with a special one-off batch of pale ale for a unique limited edition release. And of course, we’ve named it after her. Or maybe just after a really great Elvis Costello tune.
Mix Tape #2 – Bernadette Raised on both sides of the Atlantic, Bernadette is a little English and a little American. She speaks with an accent that’s somewhere between Catherine Zeta-Jones and Maude Lebowski. A blend of our IPA and the same one-off snowflake of a pale ale that begat Alison, this mix tape is dedicated to her. In Bernadette’s arms you’ll find a kind of peace of mind the world is searching for – or at least that’s what the Four Tops say.
Mix Tape #3 – Cecilia Cecilia is an East coast gal, and she loves her cream ale. We dedicate this blend of our Vienna lager and pale ale to her. It’s not a cream ale, but its gold color and crisp flavor will remind you of one – shaking your confidence daily, just like Cecilia did to Simon and Garfunkel.
Mix Tape #5 - Elenore The Turtles said Elenore’s looks were intoxicating. This mix tape dedicated to her is also beautiful to behold, and lovely to drink too. It’s a pale / porter blend, with whole vanilla beans added after fermentation. It’ll have you singing “gee I think you’re swell!” Alcohol: 4.8% ABV, Bitterness: 40 IBU.
