Caliber Red Ale
cal·i·ber [kal-uh-ber] - n - Ordnance: The diameter of the bore of a gun taken as a unit of measurement.
This is a light bodied beer with a flavor that can be enjoyed by anyone. This beer is enjoyed even by those who don't typically like craft beer. We use pilsner malt, and rose hips are used to improve color and provide a slight citrus flavor.
Barrage Brown Ale
bar·rage [buh-rahzh; especially British bar-ahzh] - n - Military: A heavy barrier of artillery fire to protect one's own advancing or retreating troops or to stop the advance of enemy troops.
This is an English style brown ale. We use imported grains and hops, using hops with a more herbal quality to their flavor. Something else about a subtle complexity and it tasting damned good.
Muzzle Flash American Amber
n - the visible light of a muzzle blast, which expels high temperature, high pressure gases from the muzzle of a firearm
This amber is front loaded with Cascade and Summit hops. The front end hops provide the aromatic hop flavors, but this beer doesn't have the bitter finish often associated with IPAs and other hop heavy styles.
smooth·bore [smooth-bawr, -bohr] - adj - Having a smooth, un-rifled bore.
A full bodied and full flavored stout, dark enough that light does not pass through a full pint. This beer is designed to be very smooth, such that it is enjoyed even by many who don't typically like dark beers. To improve body and texture, toasted steel cut oats are used, though not enough to be classed as an oatmeal stout.
A Scottish Wee Heavy style ale that is malty and smooth with a minimal hop impact. This beer is a dark amber color with a creamy off-white head. The aroma is bready with honey-like notes that blend together like sopapillas. Full-bodied, but not too thick, this beer has all the malty sweet flavors of a traditional Scottish ale with a subtle smokiness and the added complexity of oak and imported black treacle. At 7.8% ABV, this beer is strong, yet incredibly smooth and easy to drink. This is a dangerously quaffable ale.
St. Barbara Heather Ale (Spring)
St. Barbara Sorghum Ale is a low-gluten ale brewed with sorghum, honey, heather tips and lemon peel. St. Barbara has been known for ages as the patron saint of smiths and artillerymen. Brass Cannon Brewing's St. Barbara Ale is a light, crisp ale that starts with aromatic notes of honey and flowers. The smooth, easy drinking body is followed by a light lingering bitterness on the finish. The floral notes and lively mid-pallet makes this an excellent spring beer that is well paired with sandwiches and light pub fare.
Split Shot (Summer)CURRENT!!!
The Split Shot is an American Wheat Ale brewed with 50% malted wheat and 50% malted rye. There is no barley in this beer at all. The Split Shot is a light colored, medium bodied wheat beer with a clean flavor and subtle spiciness. A fantastic brew for hot summer days. This was our very first seasonal brew and we are proud to bring it back!
A Märzen style beer that uses ale yeast instead of the traditional lager yeast. The higher fermentation temperature adds another layer of complexity to the already complex style. Malty with grain and biscuit notes, this is the type of brew you want for your own Oktoberfest celebration.
More to follow with the coming seasons.
