  • Savor the multi-year gold medal winning 11.8% QUAD, a big and elegant dark ale with flavors of Belgian spice, dark fruit, caramel, and a lingering warmth. 
  • Try the 9% ABV Double Simcoe IPA, one of my all-time favorite IPAs. Ludicrous amounts of Simcoe hops with the malt to back it up.

Weyerbacher Eighteen

Weizenbock
At 11.1% ABV, Eighteen is a "Weizendoppelbock." Eighteen's nose is reminiscent of a big dark Belgian-style ale with a touch of smokiness. The color is a hazy deep brown. Eighteen features a complex combination of dark fruit and bready malts with chocolate flavors that are perfectly balanced with spicy phenols and banana esters. This unfiltered and bottle-conditioned ale has a creamy, textured mouthfeel and a warming finish.

Weyerbacher QUAD

Belgian Dark Strong Ale - 11.8%
Grand Champion in the 2000, and again in 2004 at United States Beer Tasting Championship, Weyerbacher QUAD was the first quadrupel style beer to be commercially brewed and bottled in the United States. In December 2002 QUAD won Mid-Atlantic Champion at the USBTC for the third year in a row. Big and delicious, QUAD is an elegant dark ale. Rich with complexity and flavor, try savoring it with a fine dinner. You also might enjoy it as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to a dessert, but QUAD stands alone quite well. We recommend enjoying QUAD in a brandy snifter or wineglass so you can drink in the aroma of this fine ale. As with any higher alcohol beers, QUAD will be at its best after a period 12 months or so in the bottle, perhaps longer. We expect a shelf life of 3-5 years, but go ahead, we know you can't wait. Enjoy one now, and another every month or two, and you'll be truly amazed as QUAD gains smoothness and complexity over time as it ages.

Double Simcoe IPA

Imperial IPA - 9%
Double Simcoe IPA, 9.0% abv, is our incredible reward for Hopheads seeking the intense hop flavor in a Double IPA, without the harshness. It is brewed utilizing only the Simcoe hop variety. This hybrid hop, developed and trademarked by Select Botanicals Group, LLC in the year 2000, was created for its high alpha acid content, maximum aromatic oils, and low cohumulone(harshness) levels so that brewers can really put a lot of 'em in a beer and not create an overly harsh taste. Double Simcoe IPA is a full-flavored ale with hints of pineapple and citrus upfront, a good malt backbone in the middle, and a clean finish that doesn't linger too long. Check it out, and you'll soon see why everyone's talking about it. Double Simcoe is available year-round.

Weyerbacher Auriga

American Stout - 6.5% 44 IBUs
Auriga is part of the the Northern Hemisphere Constellation Brewers' Select Series. Auriga is a hoppy American Stout: slightly roasty with a dry finish and a good hop flavor, thanks to plenty of Delta hops (a Cascade / Fuggles hybrid). Fantastic cool weather beer. Auriga will have extremely limited production.

Weyerbacher Old Heathen

Imperial Stout - 8%
Rich, velvety and deliciously complex, Old Heathen (8.0% ABV) is a truly distinctive stout. We use seven types of malt and two varieties of hops to bring forth this big brew. Quite robust and roasty on the palate, Old Heathen Imperial Stout has a wonderfully fruity nose and a moderately dry finish. The taste is highly complex - perhaps you'll even discern notes of espresso or chocolate. Old Heathen Imperial Stout is our interpretation of a beer style that originated in the 18th century. Brewed in England and exported to Germany, Scandinavia and Russia, these beers became fashionable among the members of the Czar's court. In order to survive long voyages they were brewed with high alcohol content to prevent spoilage.

Weyerbacher Verboten

Belgian Pale Ale - 5.9% 30 IBUs
It is a Belgian-style Pale Ale with an American twist. It is brewed with pale, carahell, and wheat malts, and hopped with centennial and Cascade hops to give it a distinctly American character. The medium bodied beer has a crisp palate an moderate bitterness coupled with the fruity esters from the abbey yeast strain. It is bottle and keg conditioned so expect a tall fluffy head and a small amount of sediment.

Weyerbacher Winter Ale

Christmas/Winter Specialty Spiced Beer - 5.6%
At Weyerbacher we've created a Winter Ale that is a must for any malty beer lover. Winner of a Silver Medal in the 1998 World Beer Championships, Weyerbacher Winter Ale is brewed with deep-roasted chocolate malt. The taste predominates with a warm, roasty flavor, balanced out with a slightly dry finish. It's smooth but not cloying, with a warming belt of alcohol (5.6% ABV). Although winter ales predate history, they are believed to have their origin in the pagan celebrations of winter solstice. Later, when monasteries produced the local brew, winter ales were made each year to commemorate the birth of Christ. Back then, winter ales were brewed full-bodied as a source of nutrition for the upcoming winter months. Today, winter ales are typified by their seasonality, their rich, malty flavors and by their deep, dark coloration. Generally available November through February, Weyerbacher Winter Ale is the perfect libation for a winter meal, with good friends, or beside a warm fire fending off a cold winter night.
Cheers!
