Just tapped: EKU German Pils – Kulmbacher Brauerei AG 5% ABVEKU_Pils_USA_80mm_RZ
Brewer’s Notes:
A truly great Pils, a little maltier and more ‘Bavarian’ than the rest.
When the very first clear, golden lager was brewed in the Bohemian town of Pilsen in 1842, beer drinkers the world over were immediately enchanted. The Germans quickly proved to be the most passionate devotees of the new style. Towns across the land began brewing their own “Pilsner” beers, and the name of the style was soon shortened to the friendlier “Pils.” The German touch was to make the beer a bit lighter in body – better for everyday drinking – and to add an extra dose of hops for a refreshingly bitter zing.
In Germany today, Pils is by far the most popular beer style, and every region has at least one brand to call its own. Pils brewed in southern Germany generally has a sweeter, maltier taste, while Pils brewed in the north tends toward a hoppier bitterness.
In Kulmbach, in the center of the country – not far from the western border of Bohemia – the best balance between the malty and hoppy elements of a classic pils is achieved…

Just tapped: Pinglehead Red Ale by Pinglehead Brewing Co. 7.8% ABV. BA Score 91pinglehead

Brewer’s Description:
Our flagship beer pours a clear red body with an off-white colored head. Aroma is caramel sweet with floral undertones. Dry-hopping gives subtle floral hop flavors to compliment a smooth caramel malt backbone. A combination of mellow bitterness, candy sweetness and medium body result in a balanced, highly drinkable red ale.

Just tapped: Brooklyn Brown Ale – Brooklyn Brewery 5.6% ABVBrBrown

Brewer’s Notes:
This is the award-winning original American brown ale, first brewed as a holiday specialty, and now one of our most popular beers year-round. Northern English brown ales tend to be strong and dry, while southern English brown ales are milder and sweeter. Brooklyn Brown Ale combines the best of those classic styles and then adds an American accent in the form of a firm hop character and roasty palate. A blend of six malts, some of them roasted, give this beer its deep russet-brown color and complex malt flavor, fruity, smooth and rich, with a caramel, chocolate and coffee background. Generous late hopping brings forward a nice hop aroma to complete the picture. Brooklyn Brown Ale is full-flavored but retains a smoothness and easy drinkability that has made it one of the most popular dark beers in the Northeast.

Brewer’s Notes:
A Milk Chocolate Porter featuring rich notes of Chocolate and a medium-bodied mouth feel. The sweetness from the lactose blends well with the dark malts. The combination of flaked oats and the dark malts results in a tan-colored head. Enjoy the Bell Cow. Moo.

Brewer’s Notes:
A trophy beer that’s a testament to our homebrew roots.
Our Sculpin IPA is a great example of what got us into brewing in the first place. After years of experimenting, we knew hopping an ale at five separate stages would produce something special. The result ended up being this gold-medal winning IPA, whose inspired use of hops creates hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavors, but still packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish.

Brewer’s Notes:
Vernon Dean, a Bold City fixture in and around the brewery, will never be forgotten by all who visited or worked at Bold City Brewery while he was here. Vernon handled chef duties for Jolly Mon Catering inside Bold City and suddenly passed away in January 2015. We have brewed a special beer in his honor – Vernon’s Pilsner – which was created to reflect Vernon’s lovable golden and bitter personality. This is Bold City’s first pilsner.
