Black Ox (Porter / 5.8%) - A delightful porter that serves as a showcase for the rye that makes up a significant percentage of its malt bill. Roasty and spicy but well-balanced.
Golden Ox (Belgian Golden Ale / 6.5%) - Delightfully fruity (apple, pear, peach) yeast notes precede a crisp finish. Flowery/grassy hop notes comes from Saaz, Columbus, and Cascade.
Alpha Ox (Session IPA / 4.5%) - Quite a tasty session IPA with a bit of an odd malt bill (Caramunich, abbey, and flaked oats for mouthfeel). Generously hopped with Amarillo, Centennial, and Simcoe
BS Belgian Specialty (Dark Belgian Strong Ale / 7.8%) - Caramel and dark fruit notes in a spicy Belgian package
The Oxorcist (Pumpkin Ale / 5.9%) - Brown ale loaded with pumpkin and graham crackers.
