GW Beer List

Last updated on November 25, 2014*

Cask Conditioned Ales

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

 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
 Stepchild Red Ale
This red ale has medium body and a lot of malt sweetness. Look for caramel and chocolate notes. We added a nice dose of mild American hops to round out the flavor.
O.G. 13.3P, 30 IBU's, 5.7% ABV
 Avert Rye Pale Ale
Pliny the Elder said rye “only serves to avert starvation”. Rye adds a spiciness to beers and this one is hopped up with Liberty and centennial hops for extra spice and citrus notes.
O.G. 15P, 55 IBU's, 6.5% 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
 St. Martin's Wit (1)
Wits are cloudy, unfiltered European style wheat ales. They are spiced with coriander and orange peel. They are considered by many to be crisp and refreshing.
O.G. 09.2P, 15 IBU's, 4% ABV
 Yuletide Winter Ale
This year’s winter ale is a cross between a porter and a milk stout. We used a heavy dose of chocolate malt and dark roasted wheat. Toward the end of the brewing process we added lactose, or dairy sugar, which is un-fermentable, giving this beer a strong sweetness at the end.
O.G. 15.5, 20 IBU's, 5.3% ABV
