This beer has no soul.
Now that that’s out of our system, let’s get down and dirty with Ginger Beer, the redheaded stepchild that is our latest Brewhouse Rarities release.
Ginger Beer was the brainchild of (you guessed it) two resident gingers: Steve Brockwell, a brewer, and Torie Sullivan, a tour guide. They were inspired by organic ginger sodas and aimed to make an adult version by crafting a Belgian-style table beer. Along with fresh ginger pulp, orange peel was added to the beer to play off of the Belgian yeast strain used in primary fermentation and the Japanese Sake yeast used to finish. To make it perfect for the summer months that lie ahead, Ginger Beer is effervescent, refreshing, and snappy.
Here are specifics:
- 6.6% ABV
- 25 IBU
- Specialty malts: Imported Pilsner, Malted White Wheat, Light Caramel
- Hops: Perle, Cascade
- Yeast: Belgian Bastogne and Japanese Sake
- Special ingredients: Fresh ginger pulp and orange peel
Following our tap room release, Ginger Beer will launch in Frederick this Thursday, May 15 at NOLA Cafe.

When our Gonzo label artist Ralph Steadman first tried Raging Bitch, he described it as “nectar imprisoned in a bottle.”
Now, it’s time for you to brew your own sweet, sweet nectar with our Stove Topper kit for Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA. Stove Toppers are a series of all-grain homebrew kits for advanced home brewers. The recipes and ingredients are straight from our brewhouse and scaled down to fir your home brewery.
Our Raging Bitch kits are $45 and will be on sale at the brewery and The Flying Barrel Homebrew Shop until June 30. At this time, we are not able to ship kits.
And please note:
- Ideally, you will need a mash tun with a 12.5-gallon capacity and brew kettle with a 7.5-gallon capacity. Smaller vessels can be used, but the recipe will need to be halved and combined.
- Two vials of yeast are included at no extra charge. They will be packaged on ice and must be refrigerated until use. Due to the sensitive nature of yeast, viability is not guaranteed.
