    • Ferry of the Damned
      100ml $3 | 200ml $6 | 300ml $9
      4.3% — 6 Month Quick Turn Mixed Fermentation — Riesling Pomace
      Ferry of the Damned is a Quick Turn mixed fermentation beer fermented in stainless steel tanks for 4 months. It was then re-fermented on Riesling Grape Pomace with the addition of a special blend of microorganisms for an additional 2 months. The time spent on the Riesling pomace adds subtle wine character with additional texture and complexity. The result is a unique beer with bright citrus and wine flavours, subtle nutty aromatics, and medium light acidity. We hope you like it.

      3.5% — Lager, Brewed at the Market
      Czech pilsner malt forms the foundation of this beer. For a little extra punch we finish it with a light Saaz dry-hop, The result is a crisp, lightly malty lager with a delicate floral hop bite. Nordlichter is the perfect accompaniment for the patio season.

BOTTLES
  • Substantially Complete 2021
    100ml $4 | 200ml $8 | 300ml $12 | Bottle $22
    5.6% — 1, 2, 3 Year Mixed Fermentation Blend
    Substantially Complete reflects The Monolith both as a physical entity and the beer it produces. This blend is a snapshot of our mixed fermentation program year to year, using Marsala, Red Wine and Cognac barrels of different vintages. After fermenting for 1, 2, & 3 years using a house-blend of microorganisms, the result is our quintessential blend— adventurous, yet balanced, with bright peach and citrus flavour, light oxidative and wine notes, highlighted by a medium acidity.
  • 86 Lagér
    100ml $4 | 200ml $8 | 300ml $12 | 750ml $22
    5.3% — 12 Month Mixed Fermentation Blend
    86 Lagér is a barrel-fermented beer made with Lager and Brettanomyces yeasts. It’s a blend of 12 month California and Spanish Red Wine barrels and is lightly dry hopped with Saaz and Strisselspalt. While in barrel, rogue acidifying microorganisms infiltrated a couple of the barrels leading to an unexpected dimension: medium light acidity! The resulting blend has floral hop notes, balanced red wine fruitiness, bright citrus, and stone fruit aromatics. We love the result, but this acidification method has been forever 86’ed from our production playbook.

The result is bright white wine fruitiness and red wine depth with intense citrus and floral hop character. It has round texture with high acidity, and a juicy finish.
