MILK STOUTMilk StoutHops: East Kent Golding4.6% ABV
Our Milk Stout is beer as comfort food, basically a slice of chocolate cake and a glass of milk combined into a multi-layered adult beverage. It pours an impenetrable onyx with a tight, light brown head, and emits enticing aromas of milk sugar, chocolate and graham crackers. The alcohol is low but the complexity is high, as the decadent milk and chocolate flavors give way to a surprisingly hoppy bitterness and a clean, coffee and cream finish.
MOSAICPale AleHops: Mosaic, Citra5.5% ABV
We could geek out on hops all day here at Bike Dog, but you don’t have to be a hop expert to appreciate our beers. You don’t need to know that the Mosaic hop is the rising star of the craft beer scene, injecting beers with muscular aromas and complex stone fruit, pine and citrus flavors. It’s not important for you to know about the high oil content or low cohumulone of the Mosaic hop – that’s our job. All you need to know is that Mosaic hops make our beers even more awesome, like this straw-colored, hop candy pale ale.

SUD DOGFestbier LagerHops: Mosaic, Citra6.2% ABV
Sudwerk helped popularize the concept of craft lager back in 1989, and they have been educating entire generations of professional brewers out of their onsite classroom for almost as many years. Naturally, we elected to bone up on our lager education by enrolling in this master class of a malty Marzen, a tribute to both Sudwerk’s German roots and Bike Dog’s October birthday.
NEPH`S RETURNHazy IPAHops: Amarillo, Citra, Ekuanot, Sultana6.8% ABV
Eternal Nephelai, let us appear; let us arise from the roaring depths of Okeanos; let us fly towards the lofty mountains, spread our damp wings over their forest-laden summits, whence we will dominate the distant valleys, the harvest fed by the sacred earth, the murmur of the divine streams and the resounding waves of the sea, which the unwearying orb lights up with its glittering beams. We celebrate Sacramento’s bounty and hope for a wet winter ahead with this beer featuring Denali, Simcoe, Amarilllo hops.
DOG YEARSIPAHops: Cascade, Citra7.0% ABV
Our Dog Years IPA is a Frankenstein’s monster of hoppy beers, combining nearly every possible IPA flavor profile into one seemingly fearsome beast. Fortunately, this Dog is less concerned with trashing your palette than with delivering that sweet, sweet hop nectar. Outrageously flavorful and dynamic and yet immaculately clean and balanced, Dog Years smells like pine, cracked pepper and lemon zest, and tastes like citrus, crackers, grass, honey, resin and melon. There are no bad dogs, only bad beers, which is why we brewed this ridiculously good one.
WESTWARD SUNHazy IPAHops: Taiheke, Motueka, Wakatu, And African Queen7.0% ABV
Take your taste buds south of the equator with this haze bomb, which highlights hops sourced from South Africa and New Zealand. Westward Sun has all the tropical juiciness and drinkability of a New England-style IPA, only spiked with berry and herbal tea elements particular to the southern hemisphere. It may feel like a different world of flavors, but no matter what hemisphere you’re in, the sun still sets in the west.
