What's been brewing at 515 and Madhouse?

Spiders from Clive ESB at 515 Brewing. Just bitter enough, not overt. Smooth drinking, light body. A keeper.

515's itsagüdbrown ale. Light roasty malt with a complimenting bitterness; bright finish.

515's Reaper in the Rye IPA. Spice from the rye pairs very well with hops. My new favorite black IPA.

Hello old friend. Dry, tangy Lil' Tart at 515 Brewing. The grandfather of locally brewed sour beers.

Kilt Kicker Scotch ale, a collaborative effort from Madhouse Brewing and New Pioneer Food Co-op. Aged in Cedar Ridge bourbon and single malt barrels. Malty, funky.

Madhouse's Necessary Evil. Spiced winter ale with vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, clove. A tart beast at 11% ABV!

El Jefe from Madhouse Brewing. Whiskey barrel aged Mexican stout with chipotle, cacao nibs, cinnamon sticks, vanilla beans. Rich and zesty flavor masks a whopping 12% ABV!

Madhouse's Vanilla Imperial Porter. Barrel aged for ten months with vanilla beans. 10.5% ABV. Robust yet smooth.
