A twist on the popular Gose Girl, we’ve added fresh peaches from the Armstrong family, locally grown, on from the Loop Ranch a long side peaches from Kimberly Orchards .

Another favorite place for the owners to grab some down time is Logan Valley. This brew is beer in its simplest form.

A smoky oatmeal stout dedicated to the wildland fire fighters out cold trailing in the hot summer heat. The roast and smoke in this beer won’t have your eyes watering or leave your throat dry. Perfect stout for any time of year with roasted malt dominating the nose with a sweet and creamy backing ( Cold Trail is a term used by wildland fire fighters for feeling with their hands in order to check for heat or burning roots and such that can’t be seen.)

There Was A Time — 1188
  • Light Golden Ale
  • 4.9%

There Was A Time when these twins were sweet and innocent, but now they run with a rough crowd. Complex and well educated with a sailors vocabulary. But you can probably catch them listening to some Guns and Roses… Maybe, or maybe they just really needed a great beer to pair nicely with some tots tossed in truffle oil. If you know, you know. ( this beer is for a couple of regular gals, and their truffle tots…if you know you know)

  • 4.7%

A twist on the popular Gose Girl, we’ve added fresh picked, locally grown, peaches from Armstrong Family at Loop Ranch.
