One-off Series

Our One-off series allows us to experiment with different styles through the year. These beers are for a limited time!

Scarlet Empire

A kingdom deserves a proper Imperial Ale and Scarlet Empire is just that.  A long and layered malt bill adds complex notes of toast and caramel sweetness.  While big and malty, the spotlight is on the hops.  Hearty additions of Cascade and Zythos give this deep red beer a tremendous dose of citrus and pineapple as well as tropical fruit flavor and aroma.  Scarlet Empire is truly a beer fit for a king.

Foreign Waters

Never content with the status quo, we decided to set off in search of new and exotic hops to use for our IPAs. Foreign Waters combines a subtle, light malt bill with heavy hop additions that highlight flavor and aroma instead of bitterness. A large wheat addition softens the palate while adding a fruity character which perfectly compliments the flavors and aroma of tropical fruit and citrus found in the New Zealand hops. Wherever your journey has taken you to this point, it’s time to set a course for Foreign Waters.

Citraspective

Often, the best way to look at things is from multiple perspectives. That is what we have done with this Sour IPA. A light malt bill with subtle fruitiness, kettle souring with lactobacillus, the addition of blood oranges, and a huge Citra dry hop all come together in harmony. The result is a tart, fruity beer with a huge citrus flavor and aroma. Whatever your point of view, let this be your new Citraspective.

Stalwart

Stalwart: loyal, reliable, and hardworking; this is what we strive to be, and that is what our annual summer Berliner Weisse is. A wheat focused German Ale that is kettle soured to provide a welcoming tartness, Stalwart is then further enhanced by the addition of blackberries. The result is the perfect option for those long summer days. Our ode to hard work and the people that make it happen, reward yourself for a job well done.

O’ Bitter, Where Art Thou?

Bid farewell to old IPA’s, say hello to something new.  IPA’s have long been synonymous with “bitter” but that may be about to change.  This light bodied ale is packed full of hop flavor and aroma with almost no bitterness.  Citrus and piney hops work together to provide beautiful aromatics and the flavor of juicy oranges.  A delicate malt bill including a balanced addition of wheat provide a pleasant backdrop that allows the hops to shine.  This beer is proof that bitter isn’t always better.

A Whole Latte Love

The perfect beer for those long, cold winter nights.  A Whole Latte Love is a full bodied, creamy milk stout with a generous dose of locally roasted coffee beans.  Rich chocolate flavors accompany roast and coffee in harmony with a delicate, silky texture imparted by lactose sugars.  Layer after layer of flavor, there’s a whole lot to love.

Reddish Knob

An ode to a classic, and named for a local landmark, Reddish Know is everything that is great about what made the West Coast Pale Ale popular.  Light bodied with a slightly toasted character that perfectly couple with the caramel sweetness, this not quite pale ale focuses on the hops that put America on the map.  Citrus flavor and aroma dominate with pine notes layered in.  Reddish Knob takes an iconic style to new heights.

SuperNerd

Brewers (like gamers) are always looking for improvements, exciting new ideas, or fresh spins on old classics.  SuperNerd is just that, a bigger and bolder sequel.  A reworked version of the original, this Imperial Pilsner packs a punch.  The larger malt bill is complimented by an even larger hop bill.  Classic American hops in union with exciting new German hops lay the groundwork for a unique hop flavor and aroma profile.  While larger than the original, this one still drinks crisp and clean as you have come to expect.  Whether you prefer split screen or solo sessions, SuperNerd is a winner.

Farmers Market

Everything a small craft brewery is to the beer world, the farmer’s market is to the food world.  Small, independent, and hard working artisans gather to bring high quality products and ingredients.  Farmer’s Market is our way of honoring that connection.  Taking a base Berliner Weisse recipe, we added hundreds of pounds of red raspberries resulting in a tart, fruity, and sessionable beer that is perfect for the long hot days of late summer.  Everything tastes better when you know where it comes from, so go local!

Virginia Dark

This best-of-both worlds brew is our spin on the darker side of the Virginia wilderness.  A complex blend of piney, citrus hops compliments a pitch-black pour to deliver a marriage of texture and flavor sure to satisfy beer lovers of all breeds.  Don’t be afraid of the dark.

Fairgrounds Infusion

Autumn is the season of hayrides, tractor pulls, and leaf-jumping. It’s also the only time of year to enjoy our Fairgrounds Fall Ale. A careful balance of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice imparts a cornucopia of rich festive flavors as satisfying as grandma’s pumpkin pie.

Commodore

A refresh on an old favorite, Commodore commands respect with an authoritative additiono of hops throughout the process.  Enough bitterness to stand up to the delicate yet copious malt bill, while letting the flavor and aroma from the late addition hops lead the way.  Generous additions of wheat soften the palate and add to the fruity qualities found in the hops.  Citrus and tropical fruit flavor and aromatics from choice New Zealand hops make Commodore a worthy companion on any voyage.

Mocha Latte Great Debate

What we learned from The Great Debate of 1920, is that the universe is vast and has more depth than we previously knew. Inspired by that, we sought to brew a big, bold, layered stout that is truly out of this world. This jet black beer offers notes of chocolate and roast while a rich creamy body makes it even more of a joy to drink. No matter which side of the debate you are on, The Great Debate is a beer we can all come together for.

Staycation

We’re bringing the vacation to you with the classic refreshing summer taste of fruit punch.  Additions of a three fruit blend compliment the tart wheat base beer creating an oasis in your glass.  No matter where you are, we will provide a relaxing Staycation.

White Oak Commodore

Ruby Red

Summer may be over, but the seasonal fun doesn’t have to end. Ruby Red shines bright with bursts of citrus flavor and aroma. A balanced caramel sweetness compliments the fresh grapefruit flavors, providing a light and refreshing taste. Just the right amount of bitterness not to overpower makes this IPA the perfect end to your favorite time of year.

Hopstentatious

Nobody likes ostentatious people, but ostentatious beers are a whole different story. This DIPA exudes opulence with a rich and bold dry hop. Featuring the “golden king” El Dorado and luxurious Cashmere hops, Hopstentatious is not afraid to flaunt it’s wealth. The huge hop profile is perfectly magnified by the soft and inviting malt profile featuring a bounty of wheat an oats that result in a delicate body that can still hold up to the hops. Hopstentatious is truly designed to impress and calls to the king or queen in all of us.

Calypso

On our return voyage from Foreign Waters we heard a song, a siren song. Calypso enchanted us, and like Odysseus we were trapped in a tropical oasis. So too will you be. This Session IPA delights the senses with bursts of citrus and tropical fruit. A body soft as a cloud comforts you while the rich aromas transport you to a beautiful sandy beach. Bright hop flavors dance with the fruitiness from a generous addition of wheat. Calypso is calling; will you answer?

Peaked Mountain

Each year, we have the honor of crafting a beer for Massanutten Resort. Though Peaked Mountain has changed in styles over the years, it has always been crafted to be a sessionable and seasonal drinking experience.

This season’s Peaked Mountain is a delicious, 5.6% Brown Ale with notes of chocolate, nut, and roastiness. This beer can only be found on the mountain or the taproom, so come grab a pint while it lasts!

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Great Debate

What we learned from The Great Debate of 1920, is that the universe is vast and has more depth than we previously knew.  Inspired by that, we sought to brew a big, bold, layered stout that is truly out of this world.  This jet black beer offers notes of chocolate and roast while a rich creamy body makes it even more of a joy to drink.  The addition of aging in bourbon barrels adds complexity, along with notes of vanilla and bourbon.  No matter which side of the debate you are on, The Great Debate is a beer we can all come together for.

Cerveza Hermanos

Cerveza Hermanos, our take on a traditional Mexican Lager, is a classic old world recipe brewed for the new world.  Toasty German malts lend a malty backbone while flaked corn adds a soft sweetness that lightens the beer.  Perfectly balanced with noble hops, Cerveza Hermanos lands somewhere between Pale and Vienna Lager.  This easy drinking beer is perfect for any situation from summer on the beach to cool nights by a fire.  From our familia to yours, salud!

Shilly Shally

Shilly Shally (shi-iē-sha-iē) adverb: in an irresolute, undecided, or hesitating manner

Coinciding with our annual Resolute release, Shilly Shally is an ever changing DIPA. Irresolute in its recipe and hop usage, this Double India Pale Ale IS decidedly delicious.  Whereas Resolute is dark, purposeful, and unwavering, Shilly Shally is light, wanton, and constantly evolving.  While unpredictable, you can still count on some things from this beer.  A lighter bodied and less complicated malt bill that truly lets the hops shine, an assertive but not overpowering bitterness, and a tantalizing hop aroma.  While playful at heart, Shilly Shally is meticulously crafted to be worthy of sharing Resolute’s stage.

2019 Horizon Society Sourced Sour

Our 2019 Horizon Society blended it, we made it. We sorted through all the votes from their blend event and these flavors were very sought after and worked real well together. Our base Red Sour has been beautifully blended with plum and rosemary, resulting in a sour, fruity, and herbal beer.

Eight Bells

In the Naval tradition of telling time by the ship’s bells, sailors would hear eight bells each day at noon, the perfect time to enjoy this brunch inspired brew. We’ve added a hefty dose of blueberries to a bready base ale and finished it off, of course, with a modest helping of rich maple syrup. Just a dash of vanilla and cinnamon round out this decadent yet balanced indulgence.
