increased. In January 2009 we had started distribution into

we could brew. In April 2010 we moved from the airplane
hangar at Triple W airport to a larger building about 4 miles
away. We have expanded the brewery yet again and have added
more fermentation tanks and a large cooler. In September 2011
we added (3) 60 bbl fermentation tanks. We also just added a
22oz bottling system to put some of our beer on the store shelves!

Carolinian Dark Ale
this beer was designed to be a darker version of an English-style IPA,
to show off the soft bitterness of traditional English hops but to
balance them with the rich chocolate of roasted malt. The name
“Carolinian Dark” is a dig at “Cascadian Dark” ales which seem to
somehow suggest that either the PNW has the only available line on
hops, or perhaps that it’s made by elves.

You can’t judge a beer by its color. Just because a translucent gold
ale appears unassuming and dull like many near-tasteless light beers,
its actual flavor may very well be unrelated to its hue.
Pale yellow to bright gold colored beers are generally inviting in
appeal, though color can be deceiving. Take a golden Czech Pilsner, for
instance. Made to style, this thin yellow lager hides a playful punch,
thanks to Czech-grown Saaz hops, in its quick bitter finish. Almost as
pale in goldness, a potent Belgian Trippel is far-from-harmless.
Extremely malty, this beer of the Abbeys is so sweet that its 8% to 12%
alcohol content gets lost in the flavor profile.
Don’t be intimidated by dark beer. Brown Ales, like the popular imports
Newcastle Brown Ale and Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, look challenging
in their chestnut tinted richness. But the English Brown style leaves
little room for bitterness. Friendly caramel sweetness is the dominant
flavor in these "dark" beers. Many German lagers also avoid bitterness.
Black beer creates even more apprehension for unschooled beer drinkers.
Take Dublin-brewed Guinness Draught Stout. Contrary to its heavy/harsh
perception, a result of its opaque bubbling blackness, a pint of
Guinness offers creamy mouthfeel and luscious dark chocolate malt
flavor, all with only 4.2% alcohol. That’s less alcohol than many of
the most popular mega-brewed domestic beers.
And what about those cloudy gold wheat beers? Unfiltered and unabashed,
live yeast creates foggy turbidity and contributes greatly to the
earthy, spicy flavor profile of traditional Hefeweizens and other wheat
beers. A ton of taste hides within this murky brew.
Please be a non-discriminating, color-blind beer drinker. Taste is the
most important of the senses when it comes to beer. Don’t let
appearance stand in the way of the taste experience. Give every beer a
