Triple Crossing Beer - Downtown
Cans + Bottles
An all-time staff favorite, our little pils makes a swift return in cans and on draft. As if gorgeously pale lager couldn’t possibly get any more approachable or enjoyable, here it is. Easy on the ABV, but heavy on the heart, this one leans into the Saphir hop varietal. We notice white floral blossom, ciabatta bread, fresh cut grass, raw clover honey like malt depth, and a cleansing minerality. An absolute staple around these parts, this beer always feels like home. 3.8% ABV and $13.00 per 12oz 6pk. Elegant pours and cans available at all locations.
Mosaic Triangles IPA
Mosaic Triangles makes its return for the end of summer. Hopped exclusively and heavily with one of our favorite varietals - Mosaic. This beer, and all of the Triangles beers, are full on expressions of hop character usually derived from one particular cultivar and our expressive house ale strain. Utilizing Mosaic in the whirpool, and extensive dry hopping, we note dank grass, orange creamsicle, grapefruit pith, black currant, and fresh out of the bag hop resin. 6% ABV $15.00 per 4-pack and on draft at all locations
Falcon Smash IPA
Our flagship IPA. Dank hop character from dry hop of Falconer's Flight, and a proprietary blend of rotating hop varietals. Fermented with our house ale strain.
Off the Beaten Path with Pink Lemons
Introducing our latest mixed fermentation offering, Off the Beaten Path with Pink Lemons. This batch, featuring a grist of pils and flaked rye, was opened fermented in our coolship with our house lager strain and then transferred into red wine barrels with our house mixed culture where they’ve rested since December of 2021. Once the final barrels of the blend were selected, it was transferred to stainless steel with freshly juiced and zested pink lemons from our friends @yuzu_lemons (Bhumi Growers) where it conditioned for 3 months before being primed and bottled. The bottle conditioning took roughly a full year to find the desired carbonation and cohesion we look for. This beer displays lower levels of acidity with notes of green skittles, eucalyptus, jasmine, pine needle, lemon-lime soda, and finishes with subtle salinity, sage, and grapefruit zest bitterness. Incredibly drinkable yet plenty interesting enough. $10.00/ 500ml bottle at all locations.
Oak Aged Bohem
Our once yearly brewed, forever decocted Czech style Anniversary pale lager was laid to rest within our lager only red wine barrels. After several months and careful evaluation, the excruciatingly small batch size of just a few barrels was sent to stainless for slow carbonation and general mellowing. Adding an even further layer of process to arguably one of the most pain in the ass beers we brew was still worth it. We find impressions of slight minerality, honeydew, sweet malt, cream soda, water crackers and a drying tannic finish. 4.4% ABV 500ml bottles and draft pours at all locations.
Floraison 2023 (Pomace)
Floraison, with Petit Manseng, sat on Pomace for roughly 5 months, bottled in June of 2022, and has been conditioning in its final clear glass 750ml vessel ever since. On the aroma we notice a slight lactic funk, grape stem and seed, and cucumber skin. We taste a bright lemon zest, watermelon rind, green pineapple, and delicate peach skin.
Floraison 2023 (Whole Grape)
Floraison, with whole Petit Manseng grapes, is much brighter in color and lacks the hazy hue found in the Pomace variant. This was a fun beer for us to trial out a process called carbonic maceration; a technique used much more often in wine making. This process allows the grapes to continue fermentation for on or about three weeks, completely on their own, in a low oxygen environment. After this, we sent barrels of Saison into stainless to condition atop said grapes for several months. Then, as always, we bottled the beer in March 2022 and have let it condition ever since, now presenting funky lactic notes along with cucumber, and dried pineapple. We also notice a profile of sage, Asian pear, white pepper, and chardonnay wine funk, with low acidity and a drying finish.
Introducing another addition to our Virginia Flower Saison series, Maypop arrives for the foothills of summer. This blend consists of four different saison threads laid to rest in a mix of red wine and chardonnay barrels for roughly 7 months.Once we transferred the barrels into stainless steel, we then dry hopped it with lemondrop for 3 months. Lemondrop is usually used in pale ales and IPAs, so it’s always intriguing to see how the different hops we use will act in these mixed culture saisons. Bottle conditioning since October of 2022, we get impressions of lemon-lime soda, peach skin, dill flower, sage, Valencia orange, lavender and watermelon rind. 5% ABV
Introducing the newest addition to our Virginia Flower Saison series, Sundrop. One is a saison, with its grist comprised of Ephiphany pils, spelt, and triticale was brewed in March of 2020. The second, was a coolship lager brewed in December 2022 with Weyermann pils and rye. We specifically chose the coolship lager due to their extremely low acidity and their light pastoral rind character, bringing balance to the entire blend. We transferred the blend into stainless steel and then dry hopped it with Centennial for three months. Centennial is a hop we’ve selected for years and utilize often in our IPAs where we notice lots of grapefruit, sweet candy, fruity pebbles and a touch of fresh grass. In Sundrop we get impressions of tart pineapple, dill flower, cheese funk, cedar, dark plum, cantaloupe rind, and lemon juice. The beer finishes with an herbal sage, black pepper, medium-low acidity and a slight salinity. 4.5% ABV
Summer Jetlag Barleywine
As we descend into the last few weeks of this balmy, humid Summer and into the crisp Fall, we present a beer to make that transition even more welcome. Summer Jetlag, the next in our series of Barrel Aged English Barleywines, makes its long-awaited return today. This version rested in both apple brandy and bourbon barrels for roughly 2 years. From there, it was transferred onto second use Madagascar Vanilla Beans from this year's batch of Less Than Alone, to add a subtle, baseline vanilla character. After time on vanilla, the blend was transferred to condition on a measured amount of in-house, organic toasted coconut. The beer pours a deep, mahogany with a fleeting khaki brown head. We perceive notes of hazelnut, spiced rum raisin, tootsie roll, milk chocolate, apple brandy, Dr. Pepper syrup, Almond Joy, maraschino cherries and sweet cedar.
