Diablo Black IPA is a deep, dark hop bomb, juiced up with the awesomeness of Centennial hops and triggered by the indulgent and decadent roasted malt flavors of a stout.

  • IBU: 80
  • Alc./Vol.: 7.0%
  • Aromas: Floral Hop/Toasted Malt
  • Color: Espresso Black
  • Pairing: Spicy BBQ & sharp cheeses

Mythical White

Grand Reserve

Myth making has been an important ingredient in native North American culture from the beginning of time. Not surprisingly, myths involving the bison were created and the stories passed from generation to generation. In the legend of the white bison, a chance encounter was big medicine. For such a sight was to bring future happiness, prosperity and peace.

Mythical White is a complex blend of Montana barley, wheat, Noble hops and spices. Crafted together for a rich, full bodied and intensely aromatic strong golden ale.

  • IBU: 19
  • Alc./Vol.: 7.0%
  • Aromas: Spice, Orange Zest
  • Color: Golden Yellow
  • Pairing: Seafood & Chicken


Mythical indeed, this is truly a beer from which to mold legends. Powerful.

The aroma is citric, fruity and spicy. Nicely done with a judicious hand, very Belgian, and original as well. Admirable
