The darkest of Pisgah brews, the beer formerly known as Vortex II took a significant transformation when Pisgah brewers added a heavy dose (25lbs in 5bbls) of raw cocoa nibs to the brite tanks, thus creating what will now only be known as "Chocolatized". Congratulations to the brewers, as this Russian Imperial Stout aged on cocoa nibs brought home a coveted Gold Medal at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival for the Chocolate Beer Category.

A pleasant bitterness ensues moments later as this ale approaches the end of the palate, while the ale visually pleases with a medium-light color and appropriate head.

Pisgah's tribute to the Belgian tradition and our home-brewing roots, this recipe comes directly out of Dave's old homebrewing notebook. We combine the rich flavor of a Baltic porter with the subtleness of a special Belgian yeast strain, imagine bananas dipped in dark chocolate liquified in your beer glass. Honor tradition, Respect beer.
This 17th century traditional is a Pisgah staff favorite. Our German-style bock is brewed with Munich malt, whole-leaf hops, and the right German yeast strain to give it the authenticity this style deserves. Originally brewed for lent to serve as liquid bread for the monks, this beer is loaded with notes of toasted barley malt and backed-up with hint of caramel and toffee. This rare German treat goes down smooth and finishes clean!

Pisgah's classic stout made from a careful balance of organic roasted malts then finished on nitrogen. Enjoy this pub classic made year round at Pisgah Brewing!
We have taken our classic Porter recipe, added some appropriate "umph" in the already diverse roasted grain bill, and then finished on raw Vanilla Beans from Madagascar. THEN... we run it on NITRO!! The result is a full-bodied brew of dark color, with subtle sweetness noticed on the first approach while the calming Vanilla flavors ease the palate before the roasted notes fill out the flavor profile. Smooth like a milkshake, just like a great nitro beer should be. Salud!
