GW Beer List

Last updated on July 10, 2014*

Cask Conditioned Ales

Properly cellared, conditioned, and then served at cellar temperature (52°). Hand pulled from our four English beer engines.

 Great Waters House Ale
This is a medium to light bodied, copper colored ale. The pleasant hoppyness comes from East Kent Golding hops. The clean aroma helps balance the biscuit and caramel malts used in this English country ale.
O.G. 12P, 35 IBU'S, 5.0% ABV
 The Black Watch Oat Stout
Full bodied stout brewed with shelled malted oats and roasted barley. Coffee, chocolate, caramel and nutty flavors abound. Enjoy whilst guarding the royal jewels.
O.G. 15P, 45 IBU'S, 5.8% ABV
 St. Andrew's Cross Scotch Ale
This strong Scotch Ale has a dark copper color and rich caramelized maltiness with just a hint of smoke and earthy hop notes. The crux descussata has been a symbol of Scotland since the eighth century after it appeared in the sky to an army of Picts and Scots.
O.G. 16.9P, 18 IBU, 8.1% ABV
 Saint Joseph English IPA
This English style IPA was brewed with floor malted rye and barley from the Warminster Malting that has been making malt the same way since 1879. Fuggle and East Kent Goldings were used to give this a hoppy but not over powering bitterness. “Raise a toast to Saint Joe Strummer I think he might have been our only decent teacher”
O.G. 15.7, 55 IBU'S, 6.8% ABV
 Killybegs Amber Ale
This full bodied amber ale has plenty of malt character and a nice dose of American hop bitterness. This ale highlights the great qualities of cask conditioning.
O.G. 14.9P, 38 IBU'S, 6.4% ABV

We are also having some fun with our seasonal brews and with some of our regular offerings. We will be dry hopping, oak aging, tea bagging, and uff-duffing different beers, then tapping when ready. Each is casked in only two or three firkins, so 5-7 days is the average run. Yes, our cask beer is very popular with our friends, always fresh, CAMRA compliant, and seriously looked after in our 52 degree cellar.

Pushed Beer

Pushed with CO2, served at 38°F from our properly maintained draft tower.

 Golden Prairie Blond Ale
Refreshing light bodied golden ale, using noble hop varieties. Clean delicate aroma makes this one of our most popular beers.
O.G. 11 P, 18 IBU’S, 4.8% ABV
 Brown Trout Brown Ale
Slightly full bodied rich brown ale. Caramel and dark-roasted maltiness makes this satisfying brown ale a year round favorite.
O.G. 15 P, 35 IBU’S, 5.8% ABV
 Saint Peter Pale Ale
Medium bodied amber ale, with a pleasant balance of malt and hop varieties. Our pale ale has been a favorite choice since 1997.
O.G. 14P, 50 IBU'S, 5.5% ABV
 Dog Days Summer Ale
This light bodied straw colored ale is brewed with a nice dose of wheat. Noble hops balance the biscuit like malt. Today the dog days are thought of as the hottest days of summer. In ancient times they were marked by Sirius the dog star rising at the same time as the sun.
O.G.10.5P, 25 IBU's, 4.6% ABV
 Durum American Wheat
This unfiltered American wheat ale is light bodied and easy to drink. The American wheat yeast gives off slight banana esters but not the heavy clove phenols of its European counterparts.
O.G. 12.8P, 15 IBU's, 5.5% ABV
