Exotic Elephants: Guava
5.8% ABV | 12 IBU
We knew people would like Elephants on Parade as much as any of our specialty releases. But so much that it would join our lineup of year-round offering? We didn’t see that coming. To express his gratitude to our loyal Elephants on Parade (or EOP as it’s known around here) fans, he wanted to make a whole series – Exotic Elephants – of the cult favorite with different fruit variations. This not only gives you the opportunity to enjoy more refreshing, warm-weather beer, but gives our brewery team the opportunity to experiment with different fruits atop the EOP malt base. First up: GUAVA, followed by peach, blood orange, and then a double EOP. Enjoy!
5.2% ABV | 40 IBU
Starting with an American-style red ale as the base, we dosed this beer with generous amounts of Amarillo hops in the whirlpool and dry hop. This easy-drinking red has light caramel notes and a modest hop profile without being overtly bitter.
MUMBAI NIGHT SESSIONS SESSION INDIA BLACK ALE
4.8% ABV | 60 IBU
Sometimes it’s hard to find a beer that packs a hop punch but won’t leave your eyelids droopy and your thoughts a little fuzzy. To check the ABV, a smaller malt base is seasoned with light crystal malt for sweetness and complexity while malted chocolate wheat imparts a slight roast character and imbues a rich darkness to the finished product. Finally, we packed this little vessel chalk full of Galaxy and Citra hops for a heavy hop hit without the booze kick!.
Polly’s Wheaty lager
5.4% ABV | 30 IBU
A far cry from any traditional style, we had a blast creating this wheat-ladened lager! Brewed with large amounts of kilned malts and a touch of biscuit malt, the beer was hopped with Southern Passion and Hallertau Blanc hops. For the last couple of years, we’ve been partnering with Polly’s Run to raise money to aide UNM's Comprehensive Cancer Center in finding a cure for Pancreatic Cancer. $1 of every pour (up to $750) will be donated to the cause!
Gettin Caught in the Rain
4.8% ABV | 25 IBU
Flix Brewhouse and Bosque Brewing have joined forces to bring you this refreshing American style wheat beer, just in time for "Baywatch". With hints of pineapple, coconut, and rum, you'll think you're on your own private island.
8.7% ABV | 25 IBU
Golden Strong: Brewed with Pilsner, Munich, and Acidulated malts, dextrose, and some flaked oats for body, this strong Belgian was then hopped to high heaven with lots of impact hops from contributing breweries. Simcoe, Calypso, Dr Rudi, and Cashmere, just to name a few. With a starting gravity of 17.6°P and a terminal gravity of 1.5°P, this one packs a punch at around 8.74% ABV. The 25 IBUs come mainly from the massive whirlpool addition with more impact coming from an equally absurd dry hop. Thanks to all of the breweries who contributed their hops, time, and support to make this happen and thanks, as always, to the Guild for being there for all of us
