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.

This 8% Belgian-style ale was originally brewed to commemorate Pisgah's 200th batch.  Packed with over one pound of cherries and raspberries per gallon, the Red Devil balances delicately between tart and not-too-sweet.  Treat yourself to a half-pour of Red Devil with a half-pour of Nitro Stout on top for some chocolate covered cherries.

This robust Coffee Stout is a mouthful of flavor!  A dark, roasty grain bill stands as the backdrop for a galaxy of coffee aroma and flavor, made possible by local organic bean roasters Dynamite Roastery.  A Pisgah fan favorite, Valdez is brewed bi-annually and never lasts as long as the flavor. 6.5% ABV

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!

A collaboration of local proportions, we brewed this beer in conjunction with 98.1 The River. Along with whole cone Nugget and Chinook hops, this beer also features a "homegrown" twist in utilizing NC Malts from local malt house Riverbend Malts. The result is a light bodied ale that is refreshingly bitter and easy on the pallet. Cheers!
