Chest Chop: West Coast Pale Ale, 5.5% ABV, 56 IBUs – As flamboyant as a super star wrestler, this clear West Coast Pale Ale was generously hopped with nothing but the choicest Cascade like the classic Pale Ale that started it all. It’s insanely drinkable, with beautiful notes of freshly zested grapefruit and slight tones of sticky pine. This one will have you jumping off the top ropes for more!
4-pack Pricing: $12.99 + tax

Here Wit Heart: Witbier, 6.5% ABV – Brewed in collaboration with Free Range Brewing & The HEARTest Yard. A classic Belgian Witbier brewed with 98% local ingredients, including malt from Carolina Malt House, locally sourced grapefruit, pine flowers & calendula flowers.
4-pack Pricing: $12.99 + tax

Universal Language: 6.5% ABV, 95 IBUs – Our flagship West Coast IPA hopped with Citra, Simcoe & Mosaic! After years of tweaking and tinkering our recipes, we’ve captured the perfect juxtaposition between the juicy & bitter nature of hops, which can be universally loved by all!
4-pack Pricing: $15.99 + tax
