Cream Ale – An easy-drinking, all-season American craft beer. With a low bitterness level, light mouthfeel and crisp finish, this beer pairs well with just about any dish. Try it with a slice of pizza or a burger after a hard day’s work. 6% ABV
Texas Pecan Brown Ale – Malty and rich, this brown ale has just enough bitterness to balance the flavors of caramel and chocolate. Much more approachable than a full-bodied porter this medium-bodied beer is crafted with Texas pecans to yield a subtle nuttiness. Try it with some roasted pork or barbecued brisket. 6% ABV
American Amber Ale – This crowd favorite is based upon an award-winning recipe from David’s home brewing days. A non-traditional American amber with a large dose of late hops in the kettle results in a strong hop aroma and flavor profile supported by a firm, malty backbone. Think of it like an amber colored IPA without the high degree of bitterness. Spicy Tex-Mex chicken enchiladas will bring out everything that this beer has to offer. 6.5% ABV
American IPA – Our version of another classic American style. Loaded with premium American hops, this golden ale bursts with citrus and piney notes. The clean, dry finish leaves you with a pleasantly smooth bitterness. Try it in it’s classic pairing with a curry dish, although our favorite is with a big bowl of spicy Texas chili (hold the beans, please). 7% ABV
