Kick-Ass Brown

Our award winning American Style Brown Ale is the gold standard for American Brown Ales. This ale is packed with full malt flavor and substantial American and European hop character. It pours a rich reddish brown with a frothy tan head and drinks super smooth 5.6 ABV

Notes:

The nose is malt forward with a subtle roastiness and a bit of piney hoppiness from the late additions of Northwest hops.

Pouring a deep reddish brown with a tight light tan head. The head dissipates and leaves a light lacing down the glass as you drink it to the bottom.

This full-bodied ale has a rich and smooth mouthfeel. The full mouthfeel finishes smooth with a clean, almost sharp hop finish

This brew starts off with a full malt flavor from the use of Munich and Caramel malts giving way to a bit of hop bitterness and rounding out at the end. A slight maltiness lingers after the last remaining sips of your beer are gone.

Palace Pilz

Palace Pilz is a pilsner using traditional German malts and lager yeast, but with an American twist.  Amarillo hops were used in the boil and dry hop for citrus notes.  We then lagered (stored cold) for 2.5 months.  One week before transfer/kegging, we cold hopped with a heavy charge of Czech-grown Saaz.   Look for a crisp, dry, super clean drinking lager with zesty and floral, herbal and citrus notes.

Pump Station Pale

The Pump Station Pale Ale is our American style pale ale. Brewed to be light in body and color but full in flavor. The heavy additions of pungent American hops give this beer its signature aromas and flavors without being overly bitter while the use of pale malts provide just enough balance to this hoppy American Pale Ale. 5.0 ABV

Notes

The nose is heavy with American hops that smell like citrus and pine trees. The late additions of Amarillo add heavy grapefruit notes on the nose while the use of Crystal hops add bit of pineyness and earthiness.

Pouring a rich gold with a tight white head the Pale Ale leaves a slight lacing down the side of the glass.

Our light-bodied pale ale has a bright mouthfeel and is light on the palate in spite of the full hop flavors.

This pale ale is bursting with hop flavor with a subtle malt balance. The hoppiness is decidedly less bitter than many other pale ales with much of the hop flavor coming through as a slight pineyness or resin.

Quackenbush Blonde

Our German style ale is brewed substantially similar to the Kölsch ale still produced by brewers in the German city of Cologne (Köln). Made with select German malt and a touch of wheat this beer is light in body and color with a smooth mouthfeel. The use of traditional German hops provides just the right amount of balance and floral aromas to the finished brew 4.9 ABV

Notes:

The nose is subtly sweet from the malt and a bit floral from the late additions of German Select hops. Very subtle aromas.

Pouring a light golden yellow with a frothy white head. The beer leaves a beautiful lacing down the glass as it’s consumed with a minimal amount of head lingering on the beer.

A light bodied brew this beer has a smooth mouthfeel from the addition of wheat and finishes very clean due to the good balance of early hop additions.

The flavors of this beer are very subdued with a slight malty sweetness and a good floral hop balance. The light-flavor of this ale make it particularly well suited as a session brew.
