Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from fermentation in one of our twin oak foeder vessels – the largest known to be fabricated in this country. Each installment in the series features a new fruit, or Frucht, if we’re Sprechen sie Deutsch. Each installment in the series will feature a new fruit, or Frucht, if we’re Sprechen sie Deutsch. This installment has peaches added, which add a ripe, juicy sweet character to the already tart and racy beer.
Balance is what makes our Boont Amber Ale so unique: rich, crystal malts give this beer a deep copper hue and contribute a slight caramel sweetness while the herbal, spicy bitterness from carefully selected whole-cone hops impart a crisp, clean finish. Hints of sun toasted grain, toffee, and fruity esters compliment the mellow, noble hop aroma.
Provincial is our sessionable Belgian-style sour ale brewed utilizing a unique 24-hour warm souring technique using lactobacillus in the wort. We fermented with a Belgian wheat yeast strain famous for fruity flavors and a dry finish, making it the perfect complement to fruit. This delightfully tart fruit beer is refreshing, with a citrusy apricot aroma that transitions into a subtly sweet and tart finish.
Notes of lemon zest and apricots.
Pairs well with pretending to go to the gym.
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Dopplebock. Bocks–you know, those beers with goats on the label–are relatively strong German lagers. Doppelbocks–as the name might suggest–are typically even stronger and contain enough malty goodness that they’ve been considered a meal in a glass for centuries. Generally they have a very full-bodied flavor and are darker than their little Bock brothers and sisters and a higher level of alcohol too. They range in color from dark amber to nearly black, and dark versions often have slight chocolate or roasted characters. This beer will have a more pronounced flavor and alcohol content due to the barrel aging process.
A SMaSH, Single Malt and Single Hop, IPA using a caboodle (technical term for a large amount of malt) of malt and a new hop released in 2012 called Mosaic (HBC 369). It is a daughter of Simcoe (YCR 14), one of our favorite hops. Whole cone Mosaic is used for bittering, flavoring, and aroma in the kettle; it is also massively dry hopped. The beer is named after a Texas Heroine.
Tasting notes: chalk-white head with a very clean malt backbone. The hops impart strong grapefruit, pineapple, and blueberry flavor and aroma. A strong beer that is extremely quaffable.
A Pale Golden Beer – Full-flavored yet very drinkable. Perfectly refreshing for the 8-month Texas Summer. German Pilsner malt, Tettnanger Hops, and clean Kolsch yeast come together in graceful harmony to make the perfect everyday beer. Come hang with Carl!
Kolsch takes the best parts of the ale and lager worlds and puts them into one amazing sip. White wine ester and a sharp lager-esque bite combine to make your mouth happy as a clam.
Strait-laced on the outside – audacious on the inside. It looks the part, and you know first impressions are everything. We upped the ante with this iteration of a Belgian style wit beer. American hops add a dynamic that compliments the ample amount of spices we added to achieve this beer’s bold, malty sweetness. These mosaic hops enhance a strong, fruity and juicy fruit like aroma that precedes the hint of citrus and coriander spices that’s subtle and refreshing. This session beer goes one step further and commands respect in true American fashion.

Zeno’s Pale Ale, our summer brew, is around just long enough to stop in, crash on your couch, then leave like an old college roommate.
American Two Row malted barley and a sprinkle of Munich Malt Type I, Vic Secret + El Dorado hops, and our house yeast. Appearance is a somewhat clear light orange with a thin white head. Nose is nutty malt with a delicate hop aroma. Tastes initially of biscuit, nutty malt, and light hoppiness; this is followed by piney bitterness with lingering hints of orange & guava. Quaffable.
The beer is named after our favorite college watering hole: Zeno’s Pub.
This blend of Old World bittersweets and New World culinary apples mirrors our studious respect for tradition and the crafty ingenuity we employ to bring you this very balance of the orchard in a can. Not too sweet, and made from nothing but apples, Moontower’s Semi-Dry Cider is a modern ode to our own heritage.
Named in honor of the 7th Street wharf across the street from the brewery, this filtered wheat ale is light-bodied American style with pounds of fresh lemon basil added after fermentation. The light citrus taste with a hint of spicy herb on the back helps keep you cool during those hot summer days, which in our town is pretty much all of the time.
