Our Belgian-style Dubbel pours a stunningly clear chocolate color with a creamy,
mousse-like head. True to style, the beer that sits before you presents a rich and
complex malt aroma accompanied by hints of sweet caramel and fruity esters
that continue in to the flavor. Characteristics of chocolate, raisins and toffee are
also found in the flavor, leading to a satisfyingly rich finish with minimal bitterness.
Say “hello” to Funkwerks’ first Brettanomyces-only fermentation! This light and refreshing brew demonstrates the funky flavors produced by the Belgian Brettanomyces strain used. A fruity bubblegum aroma is followed by a crisp citrus flavor. We used a large amount of Galaxy, Rakau, and Crystal hops toward the end of the boil and for the dry hop addition to contribute tropical fruit flavors and aromas such as passion fruit, papaya, and mango while also imparting gentle citrus notes. The mouth tingling effervescence with tart pineapple finish and biscuit backbone exemplifies characteristics common to this Brettanomyces strain.
This is our flagship Saison. This tawny orange-hued beer pours with a rocky whitehead. Aromas of passion fruit, tangerine, and black pepper hit the nose. Flavors a cascade of citrus and pepper. It finishes with a dry and lingering bitterness that awaits another sip.
This dark mahogany colored dark strong ale has a wonderful aroma of vanilla, dark fruits, and spicy oak. The flavor is chocolatey, with dark fruit and oak notes. The oak tannins balance the chocolate malt flavors and the beer finishes with a slight alcohol warmth.
Inspired by our flagship Saison, we wanted to create an even more refreshing, lower gravity saison, without sacrificing flavor, so you can enjoy more of it! We added malted wheat for a rounder mouth feel, and implemented more dry-hopping to produce a delightful citrusy and floral aroma. This beer has a delicate combination of fruity esters and lemon verbena, with hints of spice. It has a slight tartness that falls into a dry finish. You won’t want to stop sipping this sessionable brew, and at 5% alcohol by volume, you won’t have to! Pairs well with braised Unicorn.
Inspired by the Trappist breweries of Belgium, this Belgian Style Quadrupel is the base beer that we are currently aging in oak bourbon barrels. A malt-forward yet fruity aroma smoothly transitions into flavors of caramel and dark fruit showcasing the versatility of our house yeast strain. A well-balanced finish makes this strong but quaffable beer the perfect way to end a long day!
Named after a distinctive New Zealand hop, this single-hop saison has a subtle aroma of white grapes and a hint of spice from our house saison yeast. An addition of Muscat grape must during fermentation plays into the grape aromas from the hops and helps dry out the finish. This dry refreshing saison pairs perfectly with warm weather!
Bursting with aromas of passion fruit, mango, and peach, our Imperial Saison is brewed using New Zealand Rakau hops. Combined with notes of pepper and ginger produced by our house yeast strain, Tropic King has a unique flavor that has gained a loyal following
Solenna pairs the fruitiness of a traditional Belgian yeast strain with the subtle spicy character of Brettanomyces and the floral notes of German hops. Notes of candy apple, cinnamon and fresh-cut grass give way to a dry finish and firm lingering bitterness.
In August 2012 we collaborated with The Mayor of Old Town to create the strong Belgian-style Dubbel, Son of Nothing. Just before we released Son of Nothing in late 2012, we filled four red wine barrels with the dark and delicious beer. Son of Nothing found its home in these barrels until November 8, 2013 when we care- fully sampled and blended all four barrels to produce Echoes. Echoes has a playful blend of beer-souring organisms and yeasts that the base beer (Son of Nothing) did not have. Echoes pours a dark chocolate color with aromas of dark fruit, chocolate and red wine. A slight sour aroma leads into tart fruit and chocolate flavors that are complimented by a dry finish.
The Funkwerks sour program launched in early 2012 and this is our first barrel aged sour release. We aged our Oud Bruin in a variety of barrels for a year before carefully examining and blending the twelve best barrels. Aroma of dark malts and black cherry compliment the notes of dark fruit in the flavor. A blend of Brettano- myces with Lactobacillus and other sour cultures contribute the characteristic sour flavor profile of this style. This beer pours a deep auburn color and has a dry tart finish.
Bourbon Barrel Aged Quad
Our Belgian-style Quadrupel, which was inspired by the Trappist breweries of Belgium, sat in oak bourbon barrels for 8 months to allow the unique flavors of oak and bourbon from the barrels to meld with our base beer. A spicy oak aroma leads to flavors of caramel and malt balanced by fruit notes from our house yeast strain. Hints of bourbon and a slight alcohol warmth lead to a dry finish that makes this the perfect beer to enjoy on a cold winter evening.
