RED HOP RYE

Bronze Medal Winner - "Out of Bounds IPA"  - US.Open Beer Championship

When you first smell the Red Hop Rye you'll notice an abundance of HOPPY citrus aromas from our dry hopping.  As you take your first sip you'll notice the spicy RYE mixed with hops BALANCED by a MALTY backbone from American caramel and honey malts. These combined give the Red Hop Rye it's dark red color and BOLD flavor.  This is a great example of an American hybrid of beer, a Red Rye IPA.

Double IPA: Janus

Our Double IPA, aslo called Janus, debuts exactly one year to the day after our first beer released. The Roman god Janus is often depicted with two faces for his ability to look to the past and the future. We find this particulary fitting as we look back and celebrate our first year at Second Self. At the same time we look to the future of the brewery with much anticipation and excitement.

The Double IPA is our strongest beer yet - ROBUST and HOPPY, full of JUICY and CITRUSY hops with a nice MALTY finish to balance it out. Cheers to you, to good beer and a great first year of Second Self!

Pairings: sharp cheeses, roasted duck, beer cheese soup, and celebration.

XMAS in July

This lightly-SPICED SUMMER Belgian ale is inspired by one of our favorite styles, the Winter Belgian Quad. We started with a light Belgian strong beer with winter spices (coriander and a touch of CLOVE) to remind you of the season to come.  Then to balance out, we add summer spices (pink PEPPERcorn and orange peel) to lighten the flavor and spice it up. The end result is a beer that is FRUITY yet spicy and flavorful yet light.  A true treat to get you through the hottest time of the year. 

Parings include - Roasted pork, fresh peaches, BBQ chicken, and brie.
