Bangerang! Imperial Wheat – 7.2 % ABV 18 IBU
Bangerang Imperial Wheat Ale is an American wheat, brewed with 60 pounds of local watermelon and pink peppercorn. Brewed with pale malts and wheat, paired with a modest amount of Noble hops, Bangerang is a malt forward beer with subtle hints of peppercorn and watermelon, which become more pronounced as its temperature rises.
Hoku’ula Red Ale – 6.2 % ABV 50 IBU
Brewed with a traditional American Red malt bill of our base malt, Crystal malts, and Munich, Hoku’ula Ale boasts a full body, malty spine.We then generously hopped this beer with 5 different American hops, including two separate dry hops, to balance that malty backbone out with notes of pine and citrus, finishing off clean and dry, leaving you wanting another.
