Not everyone likes surprises. Here’s what you can expect to find currently flowing from the taps in our brewery’s tap room.
Helles Munich Lager | 5.0% ABV | 18.0 IBU
Our Patriot 212 Golden Lager is specifically designed to bridge the gap between those who drink industrial American pale lagers and the world of craft beer. It’s light, clear and easy drinking, but unlike the big beers we all know, Patriot 212 is a properly made Munich Helles golden lager with a flavor profile and aroma that are guaranteed to please. The prevailing sweet malt flavor is meticulously highlighted with just enough noble hop bitterness to provide balance, resulting in a smooth, medium-bodied, bright golden lager.
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!
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).
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.
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.
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.
Irish Red Ale | 5.5% ABV | 21.0 IBU
When the Irish sought independence from England, they set out to create a free state where they could throw off the yoke of tyranny and live their lives the way they saw fit. We brewed our Irish Red Ale with that same spirit of freedom in mind. Vanguard is a traditional, balanced, easy-drinking, red-copper-colored ale with a subtle hoppy bitterness and a dry finish. It has a moderate malty aroma and a clean and smooth flavor of biscuit maltiness and caramel sweetness. Close your eyes; you might imagine you’ve escaped to your own free state!
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.
