Not everyone likes surprises. Here’s what you can expect to find currently flowing from the taps in our brewery’s tap room.



The Mother Ship

Amber Ale | 6.1% ABV | 27.9 IBU

This amber ale is steeped in Colonial Virginian heritage, as well as American-grown barley and hops, to create a delicious, medium-bodied ale with modest alcohol and hop bitterness. The flavor and aroma are of sweet, toasty, and biscuity malt with caramel and toffee richness and just a dash of bitterness for balance. The beer pours a beautiful deep copper-color with a creamy white head.

Virginia IPA (VAIPA)

India Pale Ale | 6.5% ABV | 42.1 IBU

Our signature, hop-forward East Coast IPA is made by Virginians, for Virginians. VaIPA (or Virginia IPA) is brewed with 100% locally sourced Virginia pride and attitude to create a hoppy yet smooth finishing delight. The rock-solid pale and crystal malt bill and aggressive hop schedule of citrus and floral hops are in perfect harmony and deliver a clean, well-balanced, malty sweet and citrusy flavor. We also add late additions and dry hops to craft a prominent floral hop aroma that finishes the beer perfectly. VaIPA embodies the surging Virginia craft beer industry and is a beer we can all be proud to say is “made in Virginia.” Sic semper zythum!

Abide

American Blonde Ale | 5.2% ABV | 21.6 IBU

Abide is a traditional, malt-forward, light-bodied and easy drinking ale. Balanced with sweet malt flavors and modest hop notes, our blonde is approachable and less assertive than our other ales, yet completely satisfying, particularly on a hot summer afternoon. The sweet malt notes together with very subtle bitter hop notes means Abide is an easy-drinking “every man’s” kind of beer. We bet you can’t have just one.

Requiem

Baltic Porter | 7.0% ABV | 21.1 IBU

It takes a strong libation to properly fuel a Viking raiding party. Requiem is just what the raiders ordered. This Baltic porter is a robust dark brown porter brewed with a complex blend of dark Munich, brown, crystal, and chocolate malts, giving it a rich flavor profile that consists of roasted coffee, chocolate, caramel, and toffee sweetness. The intricate taste is perfectly complimented by a dash of spicy Saaz hops and alcohol heat, ideal for a cold night along the Baltic Sea (or the Potomac River).

The Night Mare

Oatmeal Stout | 5.0% ABV | 30.3 IBU

The Night Mare is a jet black, medium-bodied dry stout that pours with a tan, creamy head. The flavor is dominated by dark roasted grains that provide coffee and chocolate flavor notes, as well as oats that provide a grainy creaminess. The hops are subdued for balance. This stout will haunt your dreams, and you will thank her for it.

Hoppenheimer

Double IPA | 9.3% ABV | 100+ IBU

“Now I am become hops, the destroyer of palates.” Hoppenheimer Double IPA weighs in at a menacingly high ABV and carries a payload of malt and hops that will make you rethink your life. This hop-forward beer is strong and complex, with a dry finish and an aggressive citrusy aroma, courtesy of generous and borderline insane late addition and dry-hopped American hops. You wanted a hop-bomb, and now you have it.

Two Headed Monster

Belgian Dubbel Abbey Ale | 8.0% ABV | 20.0 IBU

Two Headed Monster is an attractive dark copper-colored Belgian dubbel abbey ale that will transport you back to a Middle Ages monastery. This dubbel is brewed with 100% European barley, candi syrup, hops, and a classic Abbey yeast. It is rich and complex with a malty sweet flavor, dry finish, and hints of ripe banana, black pepper spice, caramel, raisins, cherries, and a touch of perfumy alcohol in the nose.

Firefly Bock

Helles Maibock | 6.3% ABV | 26.0 IBU

Firefly Bock is a light amber-colored Helles Maibock that is transitional and perfectly suited for spring. Brewed with sweet European pale malted barley, as well as noble hops and German yeast, this lager is sweet, spicy and peppery, with a light toasty flavor and nose. Bold yet balanced, this spring festival brew is sure to help you celebrate the end of the cold season.

Great Again

American Stout | 5.5% ABV | 45.5 IBU

What better way to warm up on a cold January 20th afternoon than with a dark, easy-drinking, and silky smooth stout? Great Again is the perfect stout for the occasion, with prominent coffee and chocolate flavors throughout and a dry finish. This beer, at its core, is a salute to America, so raise a glass — to beer, country and the Republic!

Republic Root Beer

Root Beer | 0.0% ABV | N/A IBU

Not everyone wants to drink alcohol; not everyone is old enough to drink alcohol. Fortunately, not all beer contains alcohol. We gave our fermenters a rest and brewed up a sweet treat for young and old! Presenting Republic Root Beer, a 100% caffeine and alcohol free libation that is good for the soul and the sweet tooth. Our root beer is brewed with local honey from local bees for a more full bodied root beer experience. That local honey might also help you fight off allergies. It’s a pretty sweet deal.
