Today Years Old
We spend a lot of time obsessing over our malts, hops, and yeast. However, our water we’ve always kept simple. Get a report, see what minerals we have, carbon filter out impurities, and use acids to neutralize alkalinity. But water, on average, makes up 94% of our beer… so we decided to make some changes and take complete control over our ingredients! Today Years Old is the very first beer we produced that takes advantage of our new water system! PLUS the first beer we’ve made using a wildly tropical fruity South African hop variety named Southern Passion AND a crazy fun Norwegian farmhouse yeast, Kveik. This NE IPA we proudly present to you is over the top hoppy with an almost complete absence of bitterness. The drinkability is through the roof! While the complexity and nuances of Southern Passions’ fruity hoppy characteristics are incredibly delightful. Pineapple, orange, guava, mango, passionfruit and hints of berries are all there waiting for you to sip and savor.
How old were you when you had your first beer with hops from South Africa, yeast from Norway, malt from Wisconsin & Germany, and custom built water from Henderson, NV?
Gose w/ Tangerine & Grapefruit Puree
We obviously LOVE beer, but sometimes we like to switch it up. Our switch of choice…champagne! To be honest, one of the things we ask ourselves when making a new fruited Gose is…” Will it make a good beer-mosa?”. So naturally we had to create Gose Mosa!! A beer using two of our favorite mimosa fruits… tangerine and grapefruit!
This little Gose starts with a simple base of Pilsen malt and malted wheat. We then start fermentation with some lactobacillus and an especially fruity yeast. Next up, we added the perfect dose of tangerine and grapefruit puree. The finished product has an aroma that’s somewhere between orange juice and creamsicle, with a tart, juicy and crisp flavor to match! We hope you love it as much as we do… if not, more for us!
It’s A Trap
It’s a Trap” is our take on a rather obscure style of beer. Trappist breweries are known for their high alcohol Dubbels, Tripels, and Quads… but what about a single? Here is OUR answer! Our Abbey single is crisp and effervescent. It has a beautiful aromatic mix of phenols (pepper/clove/spice) and esters (orange/pear/apricot) as well as the earthy and biscuit characters the malt and hops bring forward! Cheers and may the force be with you!
Available on draft and in 12 oz cans.
This beer was named and brewed for all those fellow hop heads that walk into Bad Beat Brewing and simply say “I’ll have Something Hoppy”. Now, to that we will answer by pouring you a glass of our 9.5% Imperial IPA, featuring Willamette, Columbus, Idaho Gem, Simcoe, Simcoe, Simcoe, Simcoe, and then some more Simcoe!
Intense, delicious flavors and aromas of citrus, fruit candy, pine, and resin await you. And all in a crisp and dangerously drinkable hop bomb! We hope this satisfies your hoppy palate needs. Enjoy!!
7th Inning Stretch
Munich Dunkel Lager
Dunkel (German for dark) lager is quite a unique style of beer. A dynamic malt character is usually a trait of high alcohol beers. However, Dunkel lager is a style that radically defies the norms for malt complexity and flavor!
7th Inning Stretch is dark copper in color with stunning ruby red highlights as well as sporting a little helmet of tan foam. Aroma & flavor are layer after layer of bread crust, dark chocolate, and tiny little hints of hazelnut! Some faint caramel & toffee can be enjoyed as well.
As we always do when composing a beer using mainly one malt, we got the back of the house together, and tasted through a wide variety of Munich malts. After much malt debate, we selected a particularly awesome German variety! We then added small amounts of supporting character malts to finesse some amazing flavor, aroma, and color, out of our little copper powerhouse. We think it’s a home run; hope you do too!
All The Shillings
BBA Wee Heavy
Historically, Scottish beers had strength designations by shillings (60, 70 & 80 shilling). After 80 shilling, the beer was then classified as a high strength Scotch Ale, or Wee Heavy. For us, making a 10.5% Bourbon barrel-aged Wee Heavy, we could think of no more fitting of a name than All the Shillings!
Available on draft and in 12 oz cans.
The concept for Big Blind was simple. Get some aggressively fruity hops, let them mingle, then serve the beer in its raw, unfiltered form. We grabbed the following hops and had ourselves a good ole time! Mosaic, today’s superstar hop named for its dynamic and diverse array of tropical fruit characteristics. Mandarina Bavaria, a newer hop from Germany nicknamed “the tangerine machine”. Amarillo, the most senior hop, known for giving off ruby red grapefruit and fruit punch characteristics. Finally, Denali, the baby of the bunch. Denali is a new variety with extremely high oil content (the stuff that contains all the goodies) that displays quite a bit of pineapple.
Together these hops are pure awesomeness. Most notably, huge flavors reminiscent of pineapple and lime lifesaver candies, with a wide variety of citrus aromatics that you could only get at the grocery store. Subtler tangerine and pineapple flavors soften a resinous characteristic. All of this wraps up with a giant finale of flavor that is pure grapefruit pulp!
Hops alone do not make a beer, so some special finesse went into the grist. Golden Promise and Pilsen malt make up the backbone of the grist, with a bit of white wheat and dextrose as a finishing touch. This makes a unique, mellow, and delicious wort for our yeast to chew through and the hop load to nestle into.
Black Tie Affair
American Stout is the oddball of the stout family. It’s a stout that is fermented with a clean and crisp yeast (opposed to the fruity and softer English strains). It incorporates a variety of specialty malts beyond roasted and burnt and welcomes the use of resinous, American hops! Our grist structure for Black Tie Affair creates layers of diverse toasted cocoa, coffee, toffee, and maltiness from aggressive quantities of specialty malt. Higher hop loads, a thorough yeast strain and a fermentable mash profile create great drinkability while also allowing the hops to better express themselves. Hopwise, we used Columbus, Willamette, and Centennial for a unique flavor profile, with some classic American hoppiness! Bottoms up!!
From time to time, we find it important to just stop…..and take it all in. Take inventory of the blessings we have as a brewery. It’s an extremely competitive world and it just isn’t possible to accomplish what we have without you. Yes you, whoever you are reading this right now. Whether this is your first time in or you have been with us since day one, thank you.
Of course, there is no more perfect a time to reflect upon all of this than during the most famous beer celebration in the world. Thus, there is no other style of beer we can brew to pay tribute than an Oktoberfest style Marzen! Our Oktoberfestbier has a beautiful orange hue and is as clear as you can get without filtering. The aroma is malty, somewhat sweet, and full of toasted malts with little hints of honey. Flavor wise, we pack a rich and dynamic array of toasted and bready malts with subtle tones of caramel and honey. Full and creamy on your palate yet finishing immaculately clean and dry just before you start thinking that this beer is sweet or cloying. Incredibly easy to drink, whether you want to put your mind into enjoying all its nuances, or your mind is elsewhere and you don’t want to think, you just need something delicious. We got your back, just like you’ve always had ours!
All the Kolsch Kids Are Doing It
Succumb to peer pressure and be rewarded with pure fermented pleasure.! Kolsch is a pale and delicate style of beer brought to us by German brew masters, and just in time for stein season! With our Kolsch, we bring you a beer that is the most crushable of crushable and super enjoyable to drink. Which is perfect, because you’ll surely find yourself drinking plenty of it!
For those gorgeous earthy and floral aromatics, as well as a balancing bitterness, we use the always classic Saaz hop. For the glowing yellow color, crisp yet fluffy mouthfeel, and soft bready maltiness we use the palest of the pale German pilsner malt, with a tiny amount of wheat. For the brilliant clarity and removing all the yeast, tannin, and polyphenols that extended cold storage (lagering) didn’t remove, we used our filter press! Finally, we present to you the new standard for drinkability, cheers!
Garbage Idea to Put a Team In the Desert
Welcome to the impossible! This beer is dedicated to the Las Vegas Golden Knights, their historic inaugural season, and how this group of “misfits” helped pull our city, and its’ people back together after the most tragic event Las Vegas has ever suffered. “Garbage Idea to Put a Team in the Desert” was one of the many insults flung at the Golden Knights franchise coming into their first season. The Knights, however, brushed off all the hate and stayed focused on the goal in front of them. The more trash that came out of people’s mouth, the harder they focused, practiced, and played! This is a similar discipline we keep here at Bad Beat, we don’t get caught up in the nonsense. We keep our nose to the grindstone and stay focused on consistently presenting and producing the finest beer we can. Amarillo and Vic Secret hops face off throughout the hot and cold side of brewing this beer and these two put on a rollercoaster of a show! Heavy melon and fruit punch dominate the flavor and aroma with grapefruit rind, orange, pine, tropical and floral notes on a subtler stage. One of our favorite pale malts, English Pearl, provides the rink for the hops to skate upon, along with some carapils, wheat, and a small percentage of rye for a crisp and delicious malt profile that you can enjoy if you don’t get checked into the boards by the hops first! Cheers and GO Knights GO!!
