We couldn't come out as a frontier beer and launch with a flagship that was anything but an American Style Lager.
This is the type of beer we drank, with real quality ingredients used during that era. We wanted to make a beer that would have been drank back then, by those seeking our values of boldness, opportunity, and making something out of nothing. This is the beer that represents the west. This is the beer for the bold.
Our first ever 'seasonal' beer, Black Lager
Built with an array of quality German malts: Pilsener, Munich, and a touch of Chocolate Malt (to achieve its rich, dark hue). A modest amount of Perle hops keeps the bitterness at bay, and creates a malt-heavy beer without being too unbalanced.
By lagering it with a German Pilsener yeast, it remains crisp, clean, and easy to drink.
Inspired by the German style Weizenbock...
Guns & Oil Brewing Co. Wild Bill Wheat Bock is an American take on the classic. It is built with over fifty percent wheat malt however the addition of barley and toasted caramel malts lend to a clean malty finish with a little sweetness to boot. Though filtered, haze should be expected from the wheat. The real star of this show is the malt.
