Star Route The Core 8 Brews
DaLishes Coffee Stout
An ode to one of my friends this beer is just DeLishes. A smoky, sweet, rich malt, with hints of berry and cocoa.
Named for a town in Kansas where Gretchen's family settled in the 1800's and have been growing wheat every since. Maybe some of their wheat is in your beer.
Dark red with a fruity spicy aroma and flavor yeast and hops. Less bitter and a lower IBU than other ambers. This blend of Munich, caramel and standard malts create a sweet, toasty, bready characteristics that give this beer it's smooth finish.
Backstrap Black IPA
This is no ordinary IPA, dark malts combined with a whole lotta hops. Four kinds, to be exact: Cascade, Centennial Chinook, and Summit. No coffee nor chocolate here, just malty caramel, toast, and intense hop pine, citrus and fruity notes that stand up to the toughest palette.
Texas Pecan Coffee Amber
Let the name speak for itself, this is a smooth coffee Amber with a nice pecan nut finish.
A nice unfiltered Wheat Beer a little on the hoppy side that blends well with the addition of Raspberries. This beer is beer first with an afterthought of raspberry. Not your typical fruit beer.
Sentinel Session IPA
Very light grain with lots of hops make this is a high IBU low alcohol beer tailor made for sitting on the patio mid summer.
Star Route Specialty Brews
Grand Apogee DIPA
There can be no Specialty List without a crazy hopped, high octane beer. An Apogee is the furthest point from the center of an orbit. That's why this is my Apogee, lots of Mosaic hops combined with a full grain bill equal this DIPA. If you like them flavorful look no further.
The Reaper DIPA
My most intense Specialty Brew on the Route. What do you get when you combine Carolina Reapers with a DIPA? You end up with The Reaper. A strong beer with a spicy kick that comes from deep in the back of your throat and builds as you continue to drink. The Reaper only comes around twice a year so get yours while it's on tap.
Witte Irish Red
This malty smooth deep copper colored beer is created using blend of specialty malts. This blend gives a toasty and sweet aroma and flavor. This Irish Red Ales is a crowd-pleaser with its great taste, and drinkability.
A Hazelnut forward Brown. Nutty and smooth, the signs of a good Hazelnut.
English malts and hops with American Yeast. This beer gets its name from the use of the aroma hops. East Kent Goldings in abundance combine with Willamette make this beer fun to make and more fun to drink.
Idallo Olde Time Bock
Star Route Seltzers
Being from the south I love Margaritas, so why not make a Margarita Seltzer. Lemon, Lime, Orange Juice and alcohol. Paired with some Tacos while sitting out on the patio on a warm summer day nothing better.
Blackberry Lime Seltzer
While in New Mexico I ran across a Blackberry Lime Habanero Margarita. I have taken that as an inspiration for this drink. Tart, sour and refreshing. And just to kick it up a notch I also made a spicy version that I've added Habanero to the recipe.
