7.3% ABV81 IBU
Afterglow is a small batch India Pale Ale brewed with a dual hop bill of dual high alpha Waimea and Denali hops (dry-hopped at a rate of 3+ lbs. per bbl).

Cream Ale
5% ABV
Our take on An American Original -- All-Star Cream Ale is a mild, easy drinking lager-like recipe. Glowing golden, this light-bodied brew has a touch of flaked corn added for a creamy, mildly sweet, clean finish.
Analysis ParalysisThe Virginia Beer Company
Williamsburg, VA
IPA
7.2% ABV72 IBU
We avoided overanalyzing this recipe by deciding to pair the classic bright orange and tropical notes of Citra hops with the ripe pineapple flavors and aromas of Sultana hops. The result is a hazy, unfiltered IPA with the slightest hint of bitterness to round out the juicy hop profile.
Apricot Orchard Brett Golden AleThe Virginia Beer Company
Williamsburg, VA
Fruit
5.9% ABV25 IBU
Brettanomyces is a species of wild yeast normally seen as a threat in the brewery, but we love the fruity and funky flavors it can produce when used with intention. Our house blend of Brettanomyces strains, one Belgian in origin and the other isolated from a Virginia orchard, is sourced from RVA Yeast Labs LLC in Richmond, VA. Apricot Orchard is the third of many 100% Brett beers to come to 401. Re-fermented on 200 pounds of pureed apricots, Apricot Orchard features a fruity and slightly funky fermentation character that blends with the acidity of the fruit to create a lightly tart, fruit forward beer. The lone hop addition of Azacca in the whirlpool adds soft bitterness and a layer of tropical fruit complexity to the flavor and aroma. Grain Bill: Bohemian Pilsner, Wheat, and Flaked Oats. Hops: Azacca. Adjuncts: Apricots.

Saaz are traditinally Czech hops, and Bohemia is a part of the Czech state. Grisettes were traditionally a beer for the miners/workers - the cousin of the traditional Belgian Saison brewed for the farmers. The OG name behind this beer was "Bohemian Holiday" as it's a beer to be sipped while on a long, deserved break from the rigors of work. Then we accidentally ordered American Saaz hops. Same hop flavor, same bright aromas, same crisp, finish, different hop origin.

Fluffy like marshmallow topping thanks to copious amounts of Pilsner malt and Southwest Virginia grown Appalachain Grains barley (malted by Riverbend Malt House), then topped off with heaping helpings of hops on hops on hops. Brewed with an oversized portion of Azacca...and a second helping of Motueka & Citra in the dry-hop. An ambrosia of fruit salad with just a touch of tropical on top. If IPA's are on your menu this holiday season, then unbuckle that belt and get ready for #FeastMode.

Fools ErrandThe Virginia Beer Company

Barleywine
11% ABV55 IBU
A study in concentrated British malt character. In fact our brewers used so much malt in this bbl batch that they had to use our 35bbl mash tun because it wouldn’t come close to fitting in our 5bbl mash tun. The wort for this recipe was boiled for four hours (instead of 60 minutes) to concentrate the malt flavor and add prominent kettle caramelization character. Flavors of figs, plums, and burnt caramel. Just enough hops to balance the malt to keep it from being too sweet. And a warming finish.

Part of our experimental IPA series, this recipe is the dank cousin of Fresh Powder. Featuring the same Citra Lupulin Powder used in Fresh Powder, Frozen Bales also contains a healthy dose of Simcoe Lupulin Powder.

The result is a confluence of tropical & citrus flavors with an assertive bitterness and hints of grassy & dank notes. And unlike most of our slightly dank cousins, this offering is clean, crisp, and one with which you'll be sure to enjoy visiting early and often.

We love East Coast IPA's, but let's be honest: sometimes it's nice to kick it old school (Williamsburg-style) and throw back to the roots of American IPA's.

Pair with grassy notes from Taiheke, and you have yourself a field of fresh summertime flavors here to warm palates in the midst of Ice Town. That's the whole thing. That's three weeks of work. In our heads it's really, really cool. And we'd even go so far as to compare it to Avatar.

Saison
6.1% ABV18 IBU
Barrel Fermentation I is the first release in a series of uniquely barrel-fermented recipes. This golden Saison is the result of an exclusively rustic primary fermentation - skipping the stainless steel vessels in favor of fermenting for five months in 2009 Hungarian oak red wine barrels! Upon transfer from the kettle, four known yeast strains were then added directly to the barrels: a traditional Saison; a "wild" Belgian strain of Saccharomyces; and two strains of Brettanomyces (one Belgian + one Virginian). Exceptionally dry while retaining a full body thanks to the additions of flaked oats and malted spelt. Nelson Sauvin hops lend a white wine character that balances well with the mild Brett fruity funkiness and oak. Grain Bill: Bohemian Pilsner, Spelt, and Flaked Oats. Hops: Nelson Sauvin. Aging: Williamsburg Winery 2009 Hungarian oak red wine barrels.
