IBU 40
India Pale Lager

The India Pale Lager is a new recipe developed by our brewers to bring together two great beer styles… the Lager and the IPA. You can expect the clean, crisp flavor and mouthfeel that you get from a traditional lager/ pilsner style beer, with a twist thrown in from large hop additions and some hefty dry hopping.

The malt backbone of this beer, as well as most of our beers, comes from the Montana grown and malted two row barley. A unique blend of Czech Saaz hops and New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops provides a very fruity, somewhat spicy, complex aroma and flavor profile for the IPL.

This new beer will come across as refrshing and very easy to drink. ABV- 5.9% IBU- 40

Juicy ObSession IPA

Session IPA

Juicy ObSession is a session-style IPA that starts with world renowned, Montana-grown and malted two-row barley blended with light crystal malt, wheat, and Munich malts to create a light bodied, golden colored base–perfect for highlighting the juicy properties of the hops.  Speaking of hops, there are plenty of them!  With well over a pound per barrel used, Citra and Mosaic hops are blended throughout the brew with lots of late additions and dry-hopping.  These hops are known for their “juicy” aromatic properties like tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit, blueberry, and even bubblegum.  All of these amazing flavors come into play in this lower alcohol beer that your can obsess about all day long!

Mt. Edith is the highest peak in the Big Belt Mountains, Northeast of Helena.  Therefore, we thought it would be a fitting name for the biggest beer we have brewed to date.  Mt. Edith is a Barley Wine–the strongest and most intense of all beer styles.  Ours is brewed with an enormous amount of malted barley (Pale, Vienna, Crystal, Chocolate) and, to a lesser extend, some malted wheat.  We balance it’s extreme sweetness with Galena and Cascade hops.  Enjoy in moderation as Mt. Edith Barley Wine is one of the strongest beers we have ever made.

Plentywood IPA

ABV 5.9%
IBU 39
New England Style IPA

This juicy, unfiltered IPA was brewed using Maris Otter malt, white wheat, and flaked barley to give it a hazy appearance that’s light in color. We hopped this beer with Azacca, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops at several points during the boil. In post-fermentation, it was double dry hopped with a healthy dose of Azacca and Mosaic hops to give it a pineapple, grapefruit, citrus aroma followed by a dank tropical finish and a lingering bitterness that will continue to remind you it’s an IPA. This style originated in the NE and is known as a New England Style IPA. With our version of this style we pay tribute to one of the coolest towns in the North East corner of Montana and named it Plentywood IPA–a Northeast Montana style IPA.

It has an ABV of 5.9% and an IBU of 39 and is part of the limited release Expedition Series family of beers.
