Our Family of Beers

We like to joke that we brew the beer that we want to drink, not confined by sticking to a certain style family or limited our imaginations on what’s possible with our craft beer.  As we’ve updated our presence online, we’re actively working to not only provide details on each of beers but where possible – help inspire your own creativity with tips for homebrewers and beer fans including pairings, recipes, and other ideas to enjoy beers from Lower Forge.

Here are our family of beers, starting with some of the latest additions – powered by our partnership with Untappd.

Downtown Funk (Pale Ale - American)

Mango and pineapple infused

ABV:
IBU:

Wisenhopper (Fruit Beer)

A fun experiment, a blood orange infused IPA that has the contrasting sweetness of the fruit together with the bitterness of a strong Columbus-hopped backbone.

ABV:
IBU:

Twist of Fate (Porter - American)

We wanted to play with our Sampling Room “Randall” and decided to take some La Columbe Espresso beans and dark chocolate and create a dark treat for the first heat wave of 2016.

ABV:
IBU:

Plot Twist Porter (Porter - American)

Why is this a plot twist? Our brewers set out to experiment with peanut butter and a base of dark malts, we have the malt bill of a stout but the sweetness of a porter with a subtle hint of organic peanut butter together in a unique combination.

ABV:
IBU:

Vertically Challenged (Porter - Imperial / Double)

A complex mix of dark, roasted and smoked malts on a hoppy backbone. We continued to develop this beer, which has rapidly became a favorite in our sampling room, into the Imperial Porter you taste today.

ABV:
IBU:

Healthy, Wealthy & Weizen (Hefeweizen)

A Hefeweizen (German Wheat Beer) made as our first batch and a continued favorite, mildly hopped midway thru the boil, it carries with it the tradition of centuries of brewing from the middle ages until to today.

ABV:
IBU:

Mischief & Mayhem (IPA - American)

An American IPA hopped with Amarillo, Centennial & Magnum during brewing and then dry hopped with Pacifica and Mandrina Bavaria for a strong bittering hop backbone balanced with floral, aromatic hops in the finish.

ABV:
IBU:

Jabberhoppy (IPA - Imperial / Double)

Our first signature release returns, we’ve fine tuned this beer to showcase a balance at the upper limits of bitterness – this is a double IPA that packs together six of our favorite hops in a brewing style that accents both balanced bitterness and bright aromatic hops.
