An American Lager just as American as our beloved Pirates. Light bodied, light in color and just the right amount of flavor to quench any beer drinker?s thirst. This beer pays homage to our first baseball team, the Pittsburgh Burghers. They played for only one year in 1890 before the leagues consolidated and they became the Pirates. Before becoming the pirates the Burghers did some shady trading to acquire a big time player from another team and the news characterized their actions as ?piratical? and the Pirates name stuck to this day.
All the alphas in Azzaca, Citra, and El Dorado were dumped into the smashing cone for this one! Big flavor, big beer! We throwing a shoutout to the former Westinghouse Atom smasher that was located in the Forrest Hills burbs to research peaceful atomic energy production for civilian power. It was used in 1940 to discover the photofission of uranium and thorium.
Aufstöin to all my friends! A.k.a. Cheers! This German Oktoberfest Festbier-style lager balances doughy maltiness with drinkability.
Oktoberfest began in celebration of the marriage of King Ludwig and Princess Therese in 1810 and has endured ever since. In Bayerische, the colloquial Bavarian dialect and specific to Oktoberfest which is referred to locally as Wiesn, Aufstoin is an exclamation that means for one to donate a beer to someone else.
Simple, elegant, and restrained. Soft notes of fresh bread with a mild lingering sweetness that is kept in measure by slight noble hop bitterness. Named in tribute to the monolithic steel superstructures that remain from the Carrie Furnace site in Rankin, PA. These 13 story behemoth blast furnaces were built in 1884 and named after women in the family of the original owners as was convention for naming furnaces then. They produced steel for many high profile projects such as the Empire State Building, battleship Missouri, Gateway Arch, Sears Tower, Golden Gate Bridge, Panama Canal, United Nations Building, George Washington Bridge, and the Alaska oil pipeline; producing up to 1250 tons of iron a day until closing in 1978.
A zesty Amber Ale made with local Norway spruce tips gathered in the spring. This seasonal collaboration made with our dearest of beer friends is truly a gift of labor and love.
Coltivare translated from Italian means to cultivate, to grow. This single word was chosen to represent your beer because it envelopes who you are – always tilling the landscape and the minds of those you are near to plant ideas, feed passion, and harvest effort. You are always seeking growth within yourself, becoming better with every passing season, weathering early frost and harsh climate. May you continue to grow well beyond these forty few years and continue sharing all of the flower and fruit life has to offer. Happy Birthday, Fiore!

Oat Black Water
A medium bodied oatmeal stout that invites another sip after the last. A balance of rich roast, milk chocolate, subtle vanilla and just a hint of spicy hops.

He hails from Hattiesburg, MS near the banks of the Big Muddy. “Oat Black water, keep on rolling… Mississippi moon won’t you keep on shining on me…”

Google the "smoke control lantern slides" for a before and after look.
