Introducing STORM CELLAR SERIES, a line of unique brews. These special release beers will be available in 750 mL bottles and limited draft. The series will include experimental and unique beers designed to compliment our current line up and will be very limited in production.


SCHOKO-WEIZEN is a Chocolate Dunkelweizen. We use classic Hefeweizen yeast to give this brew rich banana and clove flavors, with notes of tasted bread from the dark wheat. Schokolade is the German word for Chocolate, so we added cacao nibs to give SCHOKO-WEIZEN its rich chocolaty finish. This is a fitting style to launch our Storm Cellar Series with as Dunkelweizen was the first style of beer co-founder Joe ever brewed. Enjoy one of these while it lasts...Prost!
