Bee-aches Forever” Barrel Aged Imperial Honey Blonde 9.6% ABV

“Mutt Quack” 12.8% ABV
Collaboration barrel aged blend with our duck friends at Able Baker Brewing Company. 4 Variations
Collaborators: Able Baker Brewing (NV)

“Dubbel Dog Dare” Belgian Dubbel 7.0% ABV
Our take on a classic Belgian-style Dubbel. We used several imported specialty malts to impart profiles traditionally found in this style. Like most Belgian Dubbels, it will be brown in color, with red highlights and a tan head. You will notice a multitude of characteristics including dark fruit, treacle, banana, brown sugar, caramel, cocoa, toast and slight spice. It will pour crisp due to it’s higher carbonation levels, have a balanced bitterness due to the use of European hops, and will have a touch of sweetness on the finish. This is a very delicate yet complex brew that can pleasantly surprise many palates.
Collaborators: Country Malt Group

“Dank Dog” West Coast IPA 6.5% ABV
We used a Prairie Malt collection including 2-row, Pale Ale, and Caramalt, We used NZ hops (Motueka & Nelson Sauvin) from Hopsteiner Hops. We also selected the yeast provided by Omega Yeast. Overall we have a classic West Coast IPA with fruity and dank like notes.
Collaborators: Prairie Malt, Hopsteiner, Omega Yeast

“Peace, Love & Hoppiness” American Strong Pale Ale  6.0% ABV
Golden Pale ale with notes of tropical and stone fruit from the generous use of Mosaic and Amarillo hops. Hoppy up front with a clean, light finish.
Collaborators: Barth Haas Group

“Dog Daze” Hazy IPA 6.8% ABV
Proceed with caution! Beware of extreme drinkability! No matter where you enjoy this brew, the hazy appearance combines with the juicy aromas to transport you to the nearest beach. Sweet fruit, orange, passionfruit, pineapple, peach and raspberry notes. Crisp up front, touch of sweetness, medium mouthfeel.
Collaborators: Barth Haas Group

“Hasselhopfen” Pale Ale 5.4% ABV
Callista, Tango, and Hallertau Blanc hops. Notes of citrus, pineapple, passionfruit, sweet fruit and berries.
Collaborators: IGN

“Wayne Frewton” Fruited IPA 7.0% ABV
This beer includes Mango and Pineapple along with Comet, El Dorado and Nelson Sauvin Hops.
Collaborators: Brewers Supply Group, North 5th Brewing (NV)

“Tripel Dog Dare” Belgian Tripel 9.8% ABV
We used traditional specialty imported hops and barley to replicate this iconic Belgian beer. The beer will pour golden and crisp and will have a collection of aromas, including citrus, banana, and spice. You will notice a clean and floral hop character, along with an assertive bitterness. Our Tripel will have a medium-light mouthfeel with a dry finish with a touch of perceived sweetness. 2016 Great American Beer Festival Bronze Medalist! / 2017 Great American Beer Festival Gold Medalist!

“Knotty Dog” Barrel Aged English Barleywine 12.5% ABV
This year’s Knotty Dog is our English-style Barleywine aged in Heaven Hills Bourbon Barrels. This beer is the same recipe of our 2019 GABF Gold Medal Barrel Aged Winning Knotty Dog Barleywine. The beer will have aromas of whiskey, caramel malt sweetness, coconut, honey, and hints of vanilla. This is a big beer, with a good malt backbone to balance with the high abv. 2019 Great American Beer Festival Gold Medalist!

“Sled Dog” Barrel Aged Imperial Stout 12.0% ABV
This Imperial Stout has been aged in Heaven hills bourbon barrels to create the perfect combination of roasted characters from the malt and sweet notes found in bourbon. The aroma and taste also provides hints of raisin and caramel that balances the bittersweet coffee notes. This 12% ABV stout is full bodied, creamy and smooth.

“Dog Pound” Pilsner 5.3% ABV
Traditional German-style Pilsner. You will notice a clean fermentation profile with a sufficient hop character from start to finish. Pilsner malt will be evident in the aroma and adds a touch of sweetness to round out the beer.

“Las Vegas Craft” Lager 5.0% ABV
Classic American-style lager. Lightly hopped, crisp, and clean; this beer is designed for a town that is always on the go. At 5% abv, this beer won’t slow you down. Brewed for the beer lover who simply wants an unpretentious local craft beer. 2022 Great American Beer Festival Bronze Medalist!
