Sour Ale
4.7% ABV12 IBU
The fuse is lit, and tons of locally roasted apples are guided by precision and dropped like tiny bombs into the mash. Air raid sirens wail as phase two commences in the brew kettle, with the fusion of a hundred pounds of Apple Jacks® cereal that instantaneously turns to dust. As Defcon 1 approaches, fragments of even more apples are deployed in the fermenter, heightening the threat of flavor shrapnel. An atomic explosion of tart apple will mushroom in your mouth and devastate your senses, as brown sugar and cinnamon help shelter your tastebuds from the fallout.

Not all simians were able to control the magnitude of destruction they inflicted upon this once great planet. The ever increasing terrors of man quickly turned into global devastation on an epic scale. Apes were forced from their natural habitats, sequestered on urban streets that lay under ruins from the carnage, and left to forage for basic life-giving necessities. Their immune systems, superior to man’s, still required the use of gas masks for survival, while humans barely clung to life. Relegated to roaming the harsh terrain in search of a mortal’s cure, this series of barrel aged imperial stouts represent the last hope for mankind’s resurgence, as we lay on the brink of Ape Armageddon.

This triple entendre of a malty bock beer is swarming with gobs of Virginia wildflower honey that gives B-Sides an earthy, nectarous aroma with a touch of hoppy spiciness. Besides the hard work on this beer by our local Virginia honey bees, inspiration was attained from artists whose true masterpieces materialized on the flip side of an LP. Too many to mention, but to our adored friend William, It Was Really Nothing since you conjectured How Soon Is Now? May the reincarnation of vinyl thwart the death of the B-Sides in this daunting Digital Age.

Delightfully Immoral GrisetteStrangeways
Richmond, VA
Farmhouse
5.8% ABV39 IBU
A Tryst with taste. First of three beers released in celebration of our First Anniversary, the name Delightfully Immoral comes from Mark Twain’s book The Innocents Abroad, which immortalized the famed femme fatales known as grisettes. Subduingly seductive, these dames hailing from as early as the 17th century were famous for serving French miners a farmhouse style of beer called a grisette, a variation of the more lactic saison. Cavorting in their customary grey dresses, not only did these matrons quench the thirst of the hard working man with local beer, but they were known to supplement their income as ladies of the night. Unusual treatments in our grisette include the additions of lavender and heather, a Bière de Garde yeast, and hop varietals including Citra, Simcoe and Galena, along with aging the beer in local Virginia oak wine barrels from Horton vineyards. Earthy, floral scents coalesce with citrusy hops and peppery yeast notes to yield a dry, spritzy finish. “Oh, so charmingly, so delightfully immoral!”.
Desdemona (Wyrd Sisters)Strangeways

Richmond, VA
Belgian IPA
7.7% ABV70 IBU
On candy stripe legs the tripods come, softly through the shadows of the evening sun. Ominous creatures have arrived from deep space, exceedingly parched. They scour and scourge our strange world, until they encounter the liquid that will provide them the sustenance they crave. Starting with a uniquely complex Belgian IPA that is subsequently barrel-aged on oak, these assassins from another world disintegrate the distinct blend of citrusy hops to permeate and calm their souls. Yielding the strangest twist upon their alien lips, they undergo an out of their world experience. Due to the immense power of this golden elixir, peace in the universe will thankfully now endure.

Freeze RayStrangeways

Eisbock
10.2% ABV29 IBU
Why do supervillains love Freeze Rays? Easy…to trap their arch-nemesis in a solid block of ice and monologue away for hours, while their foe slowly dies of hypothermia and/or boredom. Sure, freezing things with a laser may sound weirdly impractical, but that is before you knew it could be used on Strangeways’ newest concoction, Freeze Ray Eisbock. After benumbing a thick and malty doppelbock for days, we mined the resulting colossal chunks of ice from the vat to extract the pesky water obstructing the full potential of this deliciously decadent libation. Its thick and creamy mouthfeel is interlaced with a prevalent chocolaty richness that seductively satiates. Nevermind where we hide the 10.24% abv, as the Freeze Ray disintegrates any booziness with a mere controlled pull of the trigger.

Stout
8.4% ABV16 IBU
Gelati Celesti’s customers tell them that just a single spoonful of their Chocolate Decadence ice cream is indescribably good. Rich, fudge-like, and decadent, it’s a chocoholic’s dream come true. Maybe even teetering on transcendental. It’s also their very best seller since opening in 1984. Pure, fresh, and natural, each batch of Gelati Celesti is made by hand with only the finest ingredients from around the world — just like Strangeways’ beers. Hence, a heavenly handmade collaboration with our friends at Gelati Celesti ensued. The result is Strangeways’ interpretation of Chocolate Decadence ice cream in a glass, a stout using some of the same ingredients that make the ice cream delectably delicious. With that, we invite you to treat yourself to a little sip of heaven!

The Evil Thirst has been roving on a drought-ridden planet far away from Earth’s bounties, knowing for survival he must set forth on a long journey in hopes of quenching his endless need for refreshment. However, upon arrival on our fair planet, the villain quickly realizes the initial allure to the blue orb – H2O – will not truly satisfy his yearning. Maddened by his dehydration, he is driven to violent destruction, but soon gets even more than he reckoned for when the mighty Hop Howler emerges uproarious amidst the fertile, green landscape. Not only will the evildoer’s thirst be eternally extinguished, but it will also be satiated with voluminous amounts of aromatic, dank and resinous hops. Hop bombs of flavor from Citra, El Dorado, Jarrylo and Pacific Gem are hurled relentlessly, and explode in bursts to coat Evil Thirst’s alien tongue, rendering him harmless in a state of euphoria. Crisis averted, peace is restored throughout the Universe, as our vociferous hero Hop Howler sounds off one last time with a bellowing cry, offering assurance that all, good or evil, shall never go thirsty again.

When Hardcore Punk Metal band Iron Reagan and Strangeways Brewing got to collaborating, two core ideas were immediately at war: wanting to brew a favorite style, the Belgian Tripel, while at the same time desiring to make a dark-as-night ale to pay homage to metal music. Peace was partially restored when we realized we could brew a Belgian Black Tripel. Jelly beans were added to enhance the insanity while at the same time keeping with the essence of the band’s name. Finally, months of aging in oak barrels bring it all back to earth. Now…don’t be a Nancy, and Just Say Go!

6.5% ABV15 IBU
Kiss Off! is a sour cherry saison who would care to be loved, so could it be you? Continuing Strangeways Brewing's foray into sour beers, Kiss Off! is a distinctively mouth puckering libation that utilizes lactobacillus. This sour beer is then aged on sweet cherries for nearly a month to impart a distinctive cherry aroma with a robust cherry flavor. Finally local Virginia wildflower honey is added in secondary fermentation for an additional week of blissful aging. The final product has a sourness that is slightly cloaked by the cherry flavors and is followed by a lingering honey sweetness that cuts pleasantly through the usual dryness of a saison. Kiss Off! will most definitely go down on your permanent record.

Rye malt provides a toasty spiciness while just a touch of smoke meanders through the flavor and aroma. German Magnum, Opal, Smaragd and Perle hops lend just the right amount of bitterness and herbal complexity. The lager yeast is a culture from the legendary Andechs Abbey in Bavaria.

Niagara white wine grapes, skin intact, are freshly pressed to form a special grape must, a pivotal ingredient in our newest sour beer recipe.

Don’t be led astray as this refreshingly tart and quaffable hybrid beer straddles the line between ale and wine. Must be nice to have such a pedigree noting ties to France, Belgium, and upstate New York.

Second of three beers released in celebration of our First Anniversary, Placebo Pils underwent cutting-edge experimentation with a variety of hopping techniques to disseminate a total of seven different hop varietals amid this amped up pilsner (Cascade, Centennial, Citra, Galena, Palisade, Opal, and Saphir). For irritating symptom relief, mash hopping was prescribed to add a citrusy, piney, and spicy character; hop bursting with late addition hops was dispensed throughout the elixir to enhance its IBU’s; and dry hopping during the cold lagering process was administered to accentuate the aromatic hop bouquet. The trio of these unusual techniques were precisely orchestrated to alleviate and sustain the cure you so desire. Ergo the placebo effect becomes a pervasive phenomenon.

Sour Ale
5.4% ABV18 IBU
Hoards of helpless pumpkins were viciously plucked from the vine, carted through the dark hollows, and brutally slaughtered on the crisp, cool All Hallows’ Eve of 2014. Their corpses forcefully turned inside out with a cleaver, to expose their juicy, tender flesh. The results of the aftermath then laid bare, atop hellish flames rising from the underworld, as their meat was meticulously charred to unveil their tantalizing flavors. All in preparation to meet their final maker and liquid tormentor. An experiment in mixed strain fermentation, the precious wort was first soured with lactobacillus, and then progressed to primary fermentation with the addition of a savage Belgian yeast. The resulting concoction was then laid to rest for nearly a year, oak barrel aged with a blend of roasted pumpkins, spices, and a third yeast addition of Brettanomyces from 3 Fonteinen. Resign yourself and accept your fate to (try) Rot•In•Hell.

Venezuelan rum barrels were delivered to Strangeways on the day of Gabriel García Márquez’s death, April 17, 2014. Known affectionately as Gabo, and of whom the Colombian president called “the greatest Colombian who ever lived”, we brewed a unique tribute beer to honor the life of this tremendous literary artist who wrote the Nobel Prize winning novel One Hundred Years of Solitude (Soledad means Solitude). Under no established style guidelines, Soledad was crafted entirely with South American cuisine in mind, and everything from the fruits to the yeast were specially chosen based on traditional recipes from the continent. Colombian bananas, toasted coconut, Piloncillo raw cane sugar, passion fruit, mamey sapote, and fresh mangoes were all used in the process, and the elixir went through nearly half a year of aging on Venezualan rum barrels. The rich taste is fruity and tropical with touches of hoppy citrus and spice, complemented with mysterious shadows of coconut and chocolate and, of course, rum!

You know, the song that has been stuck on repeat in your head, but in a good way. Whether it hails from jazz, soul, funk, reggae, or beyond, the rhythm and the beat intoxicate the core of your spiritual being. This was the inspiration for That’s My Jam! Berry Sour, which intermingles rich, fruity berry flavors with a dry tartness derived from Lactobacillus. The relatively low ABV embraces these two core components, granting them the prominence they deserve in the liquid. Now we’re Jamming!

Barleywine

From a legend whose origins are traced to Native American Algonquian peoples come tales of an enormous creature known as the Wendigo. Possessing characteristics part human and part monster, these beasts were said to emerge from people indulging in the ancient taboo of cannibalism. These malevolent, supernatural beings possessed great spiritual power, and were strongly associated with winter, coldness, famine, and starvation. Embodiments of gluttony, greed, and sheer excess, these Hinterlanders were never satisfied after consuming a person, and were constantly on the prowl for fresh victims in attempts to quench their lustful, never-ending desires. This barleywine, aged a solid year in oak barrels with Black Mission figs, exudes similar powers, calling one on a hunt to quench an unstoppable thirst. Savor the debauchery that is The Hinterlander.

This is one in a series of three thirst quenching concoctions brewed in honor of the 2015 UCI Road World Championships taking place in our own Richmond, Virginia. The Radler style was invented in the Roaring 20’s by Bavarian Franz Xaver Kugler. The story goes that Kugler had arranged for the construction of a twelve mile bike trail through the forest from Munich straight to his establishment, in an attempt to improve business by catering to a post WWI emerging movement of recreational cycling amongst the working class. A good problem/bad problem arose when 13,000 cyclists descended upon his beer garden on a fine Saturday in June of 1922. While Kugler counted heads, he quickly surmised that he did not have enough beer to quench the thirst of all his patrons. Being a sharp businessman, the quick-thinking entrepreneur remembered he had several thousand cases of lemon soda in his cellar, a beverage that had proven a tough sell to the beer-loving Bavarian public. To save the day, while at the same time liquidate some virtually useless inventory, Kugler mixed his lager beer with the lemon soda. To further entice the cyclists to try his new creation, he dubbed the drink the Radler, which is Bavarian dialect for the German word Radfahrer, or cyclist in English. He whimsically told his customers he had developed the mixture to keep them upright on their bikes during their journey back to the city. Needless to say, it became a lasting tradition that carries on to this day in Germany. Prost and ride on!

Marigolds, sugar skulls, as well as favorite foods and beverages are left at gravesites as gifts to encourage visits by the souls. Strangeways exalts this tradition by brewing a celebratory stout with agave nectar, Mexican cinnamon, and an assortment of chili peppers including Anaheim, jalapeño, poblano and serrano. After fermentation, the elixir is aged in Mexican tequila barrels with Guatemalan cacao nibs and ghost peppers to give it just a “bit” more heat… Vatos Muertos =Dead Dudes
Virginia StingoStrangeways
Richmond, VA
Barrel Aged
10% ABV45 IBU
The name Stingo, derived from a fashionable slang word in the 1700’s for a strong or old English ale, likely comes from the sharp or “stinging” flavor arising from this barrel-aged style of beer. Gigantic amounts of malt were split between two separate mashes, and then blended back into the kettle to provide an extremely solid backbone into which dark candi syrup and coconut sugar were intertwined. Virginia Stingo then spent nine months maturing in oak barrels that originally housed red wine from Virginia’s Horton Vineyards. The result is a big, boozy, yet balanced ale, meant to be sipped and savored like a fine red wine. Get Stung!

Woodsman Series An unrefined Virginia gentlemen is lured deep into the woodlands by the thrill of the hunt. Patience is his creed absent creature comforts that often come few and far between. His mind hearkens what Virginia native Thomas Jefferson once said: “With great risk comes great reward”. With this he seeks out full flavors enhanced by local Virginia bourbon, while at the same time harboring the desire to avoid excessive booziness and burn, which could detract from the smooth character and malty sweetness of the luscious, deep red elixir he so fervidly craves. A rapid flavor assault wets his appetite and courses through his veins as zings of bourbon resonate. His quarry in hand, the Virginia Vulgarian reveres the potion’s art of being quite approachable in its manageable 6.66% ABV.

Dubbed “The Champagne of the North” by Napolean’s troops, this refreshing beer, brewed by Frederick the Great himself, can be enjoyed as is…or if adventurous, inject a blast of flavor by allowing the addition of traditional flavoured syrups such as Himbeersirup (Raspberry) or Waldmeistersirup (Sweet Woodruff made from wild baby’s breath).

Richmond, VA
Oktoberfest
7% ABV18 IBU
The first offering in the Woodsman Series, Ümlaut Böktoberfest is a dark, luscious Bavarian-style lager beer that spent six weeks lagering in oak barrels at 35 degrees fahrenheit. It is a twisted version of the classic German Märzen/Oktoberfest beer popular throughout the autumn season. The Strangeways treatment is a strong lager that boasts a malty, earthy sweetness and includes a subtle touch of smoked malts. German Opal and Smaragd hops round out the balance and lend just the right touch of herbal and floral notes to the flavor and aroma. The oak barrels utilized initially housed Rebel Yell bourbon, and then more recently held a Trump Winery product called Cru, which is a unique fortified white port-style wine with an 18% abv. These two previous barrel inhabitants set the stage for this beer to dazzle and shine during its debut performance. As well as add a dynamic complexity balanced with subtle nuances to make you want to celebrate Oktoberfest every day with a Maß of Ümlaut Böktoberfest. O'zapft is! Prost!
