WINDVANE - red ipa

Our flagship year-round release WINDVANE stands strong through all types of weather and is a great fit for all seasons. Pouring a deep brilliant red, this is your go-to beer. If you want something hoppy, you definitely have it. American hops give WINDVANE a swift bitterness with piney, citrus and resinous flavors.

The scarecrow has a lonely and thankless job, but necessary to protect the bountiful harvests from going to the crows. We needed something worthy of that poor scarecrow’s sacrifice, so we brewed Scarecrow’s Friend, an Imperial Harvest Cream Ale. Packed with pumpkin, flaked maize, wild rice, ginger and cinnamon; our ode to the Scarecrow is a fitting tribute to the harvest he helped protect. Enjoy this one, because once the harvest has been plucked, the scarecrow continues his vigil on our behalf. His only friends now are the crows...
