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. 



Inspired by the success of the SMaSH Kohatu Pale Ale, this Aussie hopped Double IPA features Kohatu and Wakatu hops in obscene amounts.  Add to that a generous dose of pale malt and a variety of specialty malts, and you have a balanced, but complex IIPA.  

The second half of the next Jason vs. Steve IPA contest.  This will be Steve's entry in this epic battle.  Light, clean, and hazy, this beer will utilize the same hops as Jason's DOWN UNDER IPA, but in different proportions and different additions.  These beers will be a study in how hops work differently when utilized in different ways.  

Back after a season off, Critical Velocity, our seasonal IIPA is Steve's pet project every so-often.  Big, clean, and hop forward, Hop Nerds gather, this is a not a beer for the faint of heart.  

A new Gose you say?  Why yes! Based on our typical Gose base but infused with pounds!  Yes! Pounds of Blackberries, the natural sweetness of the fruit enhances the delicious tartness of the Gose style.  Another beer where it's tough to have only one.  

Another variation on our house wheat beer, this iteration breaks from the mass-produced mold of macrobrewed wheats.  The use of New Zealand hops and a unique yeast strain move this wheat from "typical" to "wow."  Include a healthy addition of fresh lime zest to highlight the hops, and this beer will tame the hottest spring and summer days. 

South Dakota fresh rhubarb meets a light, crisp, and refreshing American Wheat ale.  The Rhubarb Wheat has July written all over it.  Reminiscent of youth, when Jason carried a bag of sugar in his pocket to dip a tart stalk of fruit in, this beer pairs perfectly with sun, fun, and friends.

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.

While a light Saison makes for a great summer beer, the addition of some specialty grains, has added complexity and body to our version.  The 10% Rye Malt for a touch of spiciness has turned this summer favorite turns into the perfect Fall beer.  To add that little something special, we took half the batch and poured it into a Hungarian Oak red wine barrel.  Give it six months and prepare to enjoy.  

Made in the same way as a Barley Wine, this Wheat Wine features, well, wheat as the primary fermentable.  Big, bold, and complicated, wheat wines are typically smooth drinkers.  Add that to several months in a barrel, and this malt-monster might surprise even its brewers. 

We took half of the Belgian Dubbel before the cherries and set it aside in a red wine barrel to pull some of the oaky goodness and let the Belgian yeasties do their work.
