Seasonals and specialties


These aren't your everyday beers.  Always looking to push the envelope, the WoodGrain brewers often experiment with the brews looking for new and tasty ways to brew up something unique.  These beers are available in limited quantities and will change often. 


Since day one the SMaSH has been WoodGrain's house pale ale.  Now it's gonna have some competition.  Based more on a traditional pale ale grain bill some "C" hops this beer has a surprise waiting for the adventurous drinker.  

An all new SMaSH featuring Plumage Archer, a heritage malt from the early 1900s England and a whole bunch of Simcoe hops.  We've lightened this one up a little bit to make it easier to have more than one sitting around the fire pit.  

Our famous Gose base infused with a TON of fruit.  The mellow sweetness of real strawberries balanced by the bright tartness of good-ol-Midwest rhubarb.  

This New England IIPA was brewed in collaboration with a local arcade bar, The Bonus Round last year and was so popular we needed a rematch. Featuring the Mosaic hop and a little bit of Simcoe.


Brewed in the style of the Kolsch beers from Koln, Germany, this pale lager/ale hybrid features a light crispness and refreshing drinkability.  Add to that the zest of more than 50 limes, and this quaffable summer favorite becomes the perfect hot-day quencher.  If we didn't make this one again, we're pretty sure there'd be bloodshed.  
4.9% ABV / 27 IBU

In The Barrels

The guys at WoodGrain have a thing for barrel aged beers.  From big Russian Imperial Stouts to Belgian Quads and Farmhouse Saisons, they love the complexity time in a barrel can add to a beer.  Though limited in space, WoodGrain, with some help from some friends, has started to fill a variety of barrels with some tasty treats.  But be patient.  These rare beers will take time.

DOUBLE MILK STOUT (Imperial Stout)
What happens when you take all the goodness of our standard Milk Stout and turn it up to 11?  An enormous, rich, creamy, chocolaty treat that after it sits in Woodford barrels for a few months might become one of the most complex beer's we've made.  

Version 2.0 seems to be a common theme as we like to learn and iterate some of our beers.  This version of the Barley Wine won't be quite as strong, but the English base malts will add some noticeable sweetness and body.  Aged for a year in a Woodford Rye barrel, the body and malt will highlight the slight spice of the barrel.  

Our now infamous collaboration with Lost Cabin gently resting in a fresh Gin barrel.  A Belgian Strong Golden style with Black Hills Spruce Tips and East River honey from Cradle to Grave Farms will enhance the gin and oak character infused from the barrel.  

Big, Belgiany, and complex.  We tweaked the grain bill and fermentation schedule just a little to highlight the yeast character and accent the maltiness.  Featuring a more prominent raisin and plum character, this winter beer hides is immense alcohol content.  

A bigger version of Woodgrain's popular Milk Stout.  Add in some cocoa nibs and espresso for some added complexity and flavor.  On top of all of that...how about three different barrels to age it in.  Yup...this big beer release will be overwhelming.  

After years of pleading, Jason finally got to fill a super fresh Jack Daniels barrel with this robust Scottish Wee Heavy.
