For beer enthusiasts, here's a rundown of the beers being poured:
Style: American Double IPA
7.1% ABV, 60 IBUs
Our flagship beer is made with eight varieties of hops, fermented with Ruby Red grapefruit, and then double dry-hopped to perfection. Notes of citrus, peach, and even mango are all present in this tart, fresh, juicy hop bomb!
Style: American Amber Lager
5.1% ABV, 23 IBUs
Our second flagship beer is a crisp, refreshing, balanced, crushable lager that hits the sweet spot between maltiness and hoppiness without being either bitter or sweet. Perfect for enjoying at the beach, on a boat, a deck, or just about anywhere!
Style: Oyster Stout
5.2% ABV, 31 IBUs
Our first beer made specially for the American Littoral Society's Operation Oyster. Each keg is made with four pounds of real oysters and the creamy stout with the perfect mouthfeel is the best possible accompaniment to some fresh oysters of your own. And proceeds from sale of this beer will be donated to the American Littoral Society to assist in the restoration of local oyster beds.
Style: Oyster Gose
4.9% ABV, 10 IBUs
Our second beer made specially for the American Littoral Society's Operation Oyster. Each keg is made with three pounds of real oysters and the result is a fresh, sour, salty beer that you'll want to drink again and again. And proceeds from sale of this beer will be donated to the American Littoral Society to help fund restoration of oyster beds in the Navesink and Shrewsbury rivers.
Style: Belgian Witbier
5.2% ABV, 16 IBUs
This "white beer" is made with wheat and Belgian brewers yeast, and fermented with coriander and orange zest for a completely refreshing take on a summer beer! A crowd pleaser for sure, everyone loves this beer!
