subatomic hazy pale ale

Welcome back to the quantum realm!


This March 21st we'll be releasing our Subatomic Hazy Pale Ale for the second time around.

Subatomic Session Hazy Pale Ale is the newest hoppy beer in our time vortex. To create an easy drinking yet super flavorful beer we shrunk down the ABV, IBU and in turn the calories as well. At 4.0% ABV this Pale Ale is the most crushable beer on the market and it doesn't lack in flavor. Idaho 7 and Wakatu hops provide a tropical yet dank profile that will invigorate your palate while only consuming in 120 calories.

Session Hazy Pale Ale

4.0% ABV // IBUs 28

gamma ray ginger wheat

Get ready. It's back May 2nd, 2020.

The force is strong with this one. Gamma Ray is one of everyone's favorite beers, and for good reason!

Gamma Ray Ginger Wheat was designed to be the perfect pairing for food. We began with a classic Witbier malt bill then added our own twist by tossing fresh ginger root and lime zest into the boil while adding cracked black and pink peppercorns as a “dry hop”. The body of this beer is light and spritzy with just a touch of tartness to help round out all the flavors and make the ginger and citrus sing. Gamma Ray is ultra refreshing especially when consumed with full flavored, spicy or floral foods, especially grilled veggies.

Ginger Wheat

5.8% ABV // IBUs 25 // SRM 5

Available: May to July
