Black Hog Brewing Co. is VERY Excited to be launching the Brewery at Bear’s Smokehouse at the Stack!!!

Black Hog will be launching with 4 in house beers:

Service IPA – Veterans Blend Hops (Cashmere, Centennial, Simcoe, Mosaic, Ekuanot) for 100% more freedom than most IPA’s! Oat based for a soft mouth feel and coming in at 7% ABV this will be a nice easy drinking IPA that we can enjoy thanking all that serve and have served in our military by donating $1 from each 20oz sold in house.

Get on the Bus – A Citra hopped American style Pale Ale featuring Citra hops with a 5.5% abv. Easy drinking with a tropical fruit and hints of stone fruit in the finish. Our site was once a bus depot before DISTRICT was built, the name is also a reference to one of our favorite movies Billy Madison.

3. Stacked – A Double IPA with a big oat and wheat body along with Simcoe and Eureka hops for a Black currant and citrus note coming in at 8% abv. Twice the hops, more abv and a bigger beer overall than the Veterans or Get on the BUs

King Julian – Milk Stout with Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla beans7% Creamy stout body vanilla finish. This will not be a nitro stout as we already have Coffee Milk Stout on the nitro line. The name refers to a crazy character from the movie Madagascar (DreamWorks 2005) Bourbon vanilla is the name for all vanilla grown in Madagascar and other islands in the Indian Ocean. Bourbon vanilla beans come from the orchid V. planifolia. Bourbon vanilla beans have a high vanillin content and a very strong, clear and creamy vanilla flavor which makes them the best vanilla pods in the world.
