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). Blending crisp mouthefeel (thanks to a markedly Pilsner backbone) with bite akin to a West Coast IPA, Waimea & Denali combine to make an ambrosial recipe that delights with tremendous aromatics before it satiates with flavors of pineapple, citrus, and pine.
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.

So one day we diverted regular Free Verse wort to a different fermentation vessel, where it was fermented solely with a strain of Brettanomyces isolated from a respected Belgian Lambic producer.

Contact On SecondThe Virginia Beer Company
Williamsburg, VA
Saison
4.8% ABV23 IBU
Known as the "beer of the miners", a Grisette is a Belgian-style ale with similarities to a Saison (aka, the "beer of the farmers"). Golden and crisp, Grisettes are lighter than Saisons. As such, Contact On Second features the same yeast strain used in our People Power Saison with a simple body brewed with Bohemian Pilsner & Wheat. Delicate additions of Huell Melon hops add subtle notes of honeydew and berry to produce an even-balanced, light beer to brighten even the longest of days.

A mellow, grassy base followed by a dash of Centennial to add just a hint of fresh hop flavor and aroma, this recipe is to be enjoyed on a warm day with friends and neighbors; the ones you bring to the brewery and the ones you'll make while you're here.
Copper PatchesThe Virginia Beer Company
Williamsburg, VA
Stout
6.2% ABV26 IBU
Our year round Oatmeal Stout aged for three months in Copper Fox rye whisky barrels. The ensuing beer produces rich aromatics of bourbon and and a smooth mouthfeel with a softer roastiness than the base version due to the barrel-aging process. Elbow Patches: An Oatmeal Stout to be enjoyed with breakfast, lunch, dinner, or anytime in between. The use of flaked oats creates a smooth, velvety base that sets the stage for pronounced aromas reminiscent of chocolate and coffee. The surprising lack of astringent bitterness rounds out this dark beer's wide appeal. Aging: Copper Fox Distillery rye whisky barrels.
Czech The Wrong BoxThe Virginia Beer Company
Williamsburg, VA
Farmhouse
4.9% ABV28 IBU
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.

Saison Tournante - Barrel Fermentation IThe Virginia Beer Company

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.

Saison
7.1% ABV21 IBU
Barrel Fermentation II is the second release in a series of uniquely barrel-fermented recipes. This red Saison blend is the result of an exclusively rustic primary fermentation - skipping the stainless steel vessels in favor of almost a year of fermentation (since July 2016) directly in 2009 red wine French & American oak barrels provided by The Williamsburg Winery. 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 with a hint of sweetness thanks to additions of Bohemian Pilsner. Amarillo hops lend a hint of citrus that complements the Brett fruity funkiness and oak. Transferred to bottles in early June 2017, this Saison is now undergoing bottle-conditioning with Brett Brux, which will produce even more of the trademark esters + phenols that often mark a "Brett beer" as funky with hints of tartness. Entirely appropriate to enjoy now or to cellar for a future occasion.
