Gone but not forgotten

These are beers that we have brewed but aren’t currently available in our taproom. Be on the lookout for them to make a reappearance though, and tell us what beers you miss!

1711 Burst Ale

A simple American Pale Ale exploring a new hop developed at NCSU and grown in Chatham County at Bee Hoppy Farms. This is a single hop ale using 1711 for bittering, flavor, and aroma. How do you like it? Should more be grown?

Apple Brandy Barrel Aged Märzen

Having a craft distillery right across the lane has its advantages, such as finding a freshly emptied Fair Game Apple Brandy barrel sitting outside our front door one morning!! We filled it with our new Märzen and aged it for 60 days. The resulting beer has a strong apple nose with a smooth flavor and finish. Collaboration is one of the highlights of being located at the Plant, and we are definitely happy with the results of this one! Checking in at a reasonable 4.3 % ABV and 36 IBU, you can feel good having two. Consider it your adult apple a day to keep the doctor away!

Appalachian Trail Amber Ale

This beer pays homage to the beauty (and tastes) of the Appalachian Trail. Brewed with rosemary-infused honey, this ruby beer will remind you of the sights and sounds of the Appalachian mountains. Earthiness on the nose and finish from Saaz dry hops give this beer a distinctive personality. 6.6% ABV, 37 IBU.

Barrel Aged Uisce Móna Stout 

Irish stout with roasted barley and dark crystal malt complexity. 4.8% ABV with 23 IBU of bitterness from Centennial hops, finished with East Kent Goldings for hop aroma. Barrel aged for 2 months in Smooth Ambler Bourbon Barrels! It has subtle sweet undertones of the bourbon on the aroma and the finish.

Black Squirrel English Style Brown Porter brewed with coffee

A frisky version of the historic English brown porter containing a high percentage of brown malt. Moderately roasty with bold coffee enhancement from cold-brewed Aceh Sumatra and fresh roasted Kanyon Mountain Farm Kenyon beans. Moderate bitterness from Northdown hops and an ABV of 4.3%

Broken Foot Belgian Style Dubbel Ale

Sometimes the simple act of carrying a box of bamboo flooring can lead to a person breaking a foot and allowing them time to come up with a new beer recipe!  This classic dubbel has 43 IBUs from Brewer’s Gold and EKG hops, sports a 5.8% ABV, estery nose and rich mouthfeel.

Butt Sniff Tango Mango Sour Ale

Dogs are the most interesting creatures, and they are interested in getting to know each other in the strangest way possible! Don’t let the name fool you, this sour is filled with mango fruit that comes through in the nose and taste, with a high level of sour. Sit back with a couple of your favorite four-legged friends, a group of human friends, a few of these sours and watch the dog tango in action. With only 3.7 % ABV and 30 IBU’s, enjoy more than one!

Copeland’s Best Bitter

An English-style pale ale brewed with Copeland Springs Farms sweet potatoes grown right outside our front door. A balanced malt profile and earthy hop notes derived from an experimental hop developed at NCSU and grown here in Chatham County by Bee Hoppy Farms. This collaboration beer is 5% ABV and only 34 IBU.

Cottidae Grapefruit India Pale Ale

West Coast-Style IPA with plenty of citrus highlights from Simco, Amarillo, and Cascade hops enhanced with grapefruit zest and finished with fresh ruby red grapefruit juice.  Hopped to 70 IBU and fermented to 7.5% ABV.  Inspired by Sculpin!

Covfefe Coffee Blonde Ale

Coffee Blonde is our first Beverage District collaboration beer.  Brewed with cold brew concentrate from Vortex Roasters Sumatra Manheling coffee, this beer also boasts Epiphany Foundation and Vienna malts with Cascades bittering and Simcoe aroma hops. 4.6%ABV, 18 IBU.

Crooked Fence Imperial Pilsner

It’s good to be the king! Featuring Epiphany Pilsner malt with 7.2 % ABV and 27 IBU of crisp Nobel hop bitterness, this lager is characterized by a malty smoothness highlighted by 2 months of cellaring at near freezing temperatures. Dry hopped with 2 pounds/barrel of Saaz hops, this beer will make you feel regal and ready to take on the world!

Golden Moments Belgian Pale Ale

Belgian pale ale made with Vienna and Pilsner malts from Epiphany Malt in Durham, NC. This beer is 7.0% ABV with 22 IBU from Hallertau Blanc and Saaz hops to finish. A light and refreshing traditional Belgian beer. Enjoy this drinkable beer while contemplating life and all the moments that made you, you.

GRIM Ale with Ginger and Rosemary

How bad could it be to load up some of our Small American Ale with ginger and rosemary flavors? Turns out it results in a great, drinkable beer with sharp ginger flavor and spectacular rosemary aroma and subtle flavor profile. Not grim at all!!! With 3.3% ABV and only 11 IBU of bitterness, this drink highlights some of the available flavors found growing right here at the Plant and grown locally on Chatham County farms.

Ignoble Bohemian Pilsner

A lager brewed in the old world way with bready malt flavors and a hint of sweetness balanced by a rounded, spicy hop bitterness from traditional Saaz hops.  4.9% ABV, 42 IBU.

Lemon Pepper German Wheat Ale

Hopper’s wheat beer with added lemon zest and a kick from Tobago peppers. This is bmc brewing’s special beer in honor of Pepperfest.  All proceeds will be donated to Abundance NC to support their outstanding work with the community.

Lemon Sqwheat

Hopper’s wheat beer with added lemon zest. This beer will quench your thirst during those blazing hot Carolina summer days. 4.8% ABV, 15 IBU.

Local Yokel Landlord’s Epiphany India Pale Ale

We thought we would brew a beer based on the grain bill used for a malt whiskey wash and cleverly call it a malt liquor. Instead, our aggressive bittering and dry hopping of the resulting wort led to a great West Coast IPA, but nothing resembling a malt liquor. We present to you our latest IPA, 7.6% ABV, 71 IBU of bitterness, hoppy nose and clean finish, perfect for enjoying here at the Plant!

Moonlight Bright Belgian Tripel

A pale Belgian ale with mild spicy malt and complex yeast character. Low bitterness with a dry finish and smooth alcohol warmth. 9% ABV.

Off Island Oyster Stout

Designed to capture the meroir of the Outer Banks using wild NC oysters and shells in the boil of a rich, bittersweet British stout. Bittering around 39 IBU and fermented to 6.3% ABV. Cheers to North Carolina’s most important mollusk!

Peace Love Paws Blonde Ale

At 4.7% ABV and just 15 IBU, this easy drinking blonde is a smooth American classic that any beer lover can enjoy. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer helps to support the mission of Chatham Animal Rescue & Education (CARE), so this is the perfect brew to enjoy with your furry friend (or friends) right by your side. 

Strawberry Blonde Belgian Style Ale

This true-to-style Belgian Blonde was enhanced with dried strawberries and some additional strawberry puree. She’s a beauty!

Trudy’s 1918 Milk Stout with Vanilla

Born in 1918, Trudy Elion was a biochemist/pharmacologist right here in North Carolina.  In 1988, she shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with George Hitchings and Sir James Black for their use of innovative methods of rational drug design for the development of new drugs.  Her work led to creation of AZT and acyclovir (anti virals) and azathioprine, and anti-rejection drug. She spent her life encouraging women to pursue science careers, so this vanilla milk stout is a tribute to her and all women in the sciences.

Von Frisch Dancing Bee Honey Brown Ale

This brown ale was made with local epiphany grains to give it not only a malty backbone, but a nutty finish. A lighter color brown that will make you think you have a glass of honey in your hand. Brewed with American wildflower honey straight from the hive, this brown ale tastes so good it will have you dancing like a bee! 5.6% ABV and 31 IBU.

Washington’s Revenge Sour Cherry Ale

Our peach and mango sours were so wildly popular, we decided to try something different. We still used Lachancea yeast but in the spirit of our first president, we added sour cherry puree to give this next bmc sour ale a more adult feel. The sour cherry on the nose is the perfect addition to a crisp, sour ale!
