Pepperwood Monthly Feature for March – Chipotle Ale – available March 7th
A North American base with some Munich malt provides the base for this festival ale. With a generous amount of chipotle peppers in the fermenter this beer starts off with a mild heat that builds. Never too hot, but definitely an interesting spicy character.

Trafalgar Maple Bock followed by Black Oak’s Cherry Chocolate Stout.
