IPA’s for Days

The Sunbaked IPA and the Traditional IPA

Besides the Throatlatch IPA, Stable Craft is pleased to provide craft beer lovers with both the Sunbaked IPA and regular IPA. Our IPA is a revitalized West Coast version infusing aromatics and recognizable citrus nose with an exciting East Coast balance of caramel sweetness and complexity. The traditional IPA has a fairly high ABV of 7%. It has a caramel sweetness and a delicate balance of bitterness, cascade nugget hops that are grown on the farm. The Sunbaked IPA boasts big apricot aromas with a subtle fruity flavor. The Sunbaked IPA is brewed with comet and mosaic hops. Apricot IPA is a big flavored beer. The strong hint of apricots makes for boosted aromas.

We suggest pairing the Sunbaked IPA with our crispy braised pork belly. The crispy braised pork is served with chipotle peach BBQ over sriracha coleslaw. Our orchard grilled chicken salad is filled with yummy mixed greens, goat cheese, grilled chicken breast, sugar-grilled peaches, topped with onion marmalade served with peach vinaigrette. If an IPA is just for you, stop by the brewery today and grab a glass. Cheers!


Craft Beer Lineup Series: Britchin’ Brown Ale

Craft Beer – Robust, dark, & enjoyable

Next up in our craft beer lineup series is the Britchin Brown Ale! With a name like “Britchin Brown” it is hard to overlook this beer. This brown ale has a roasted, nutty taste that truly showcases the malt flavor with a ABV of 5.5%. It has a strong-pull mouthfeel that is enough to lure in any craft beer lover. A well-made brown ale is typically characterized as a combination of toffee, nuts, and toast flavors. Chocolate notes are notorious for brown ales, while moderate hop bitterness brings a brassy middle. Far from boring, good brown ales will delight the taste buds-they are typically the perfect balance of not too heavy and not too light! If you fall in love with the Britchin Brown Ale, it is bottled and distributed from buds to suds!

Britichin Brown Ale

Brown ales pair well with hearty foods, such as smoked salmon, brisket, or smoked sausage. Cheeses such as aged gouda also go well with the Britchin Brown, perhaps try pairing it with our cheese plate containing: asiago, cheddar, pimento, sun-dried tomato, and goat cheese served with pickled veggies. Tomorrow our featured beer is the Night Latch American Stout. This beer is a close cousin to the Britchin’ Brown, as it is also a dark beer with a roasty, chocolate finish. Stay tuned as our craft beer week lineup continues on!


Craft Beer Lineup Series: Throatlach Imperial IPA

West Coast flavor with an East Coast Twist.

throatlatch Imperial IPA

This Imperial IPA is bigger and bolder than your average IPA. It has a complex citrusy flavor that is loaded with hops. The throatlatch IPA is the last, but certainly not the least, of our four main beers. The name “Throatlatch” is a noun inspired by a strap of a bridle or halter passing under the horse’s throat. With an 8.5% ABV, this beer is certainly big and bold. It has a complex nose and an impressive citrus, rounding out to a sweetness and caramel bite. This beer has something for everyone as it is incredibly hoppy but also gives off hints of sweet caramel malts.

As far as pairing, we suggest trying the Throatlatch with the hop trellis wrap. This wrap contains crispy bacon, chipotle peach BBQ, goat cheese & mixed greens. Imperial IPA’s are notorious for being paired with pungent cheeses, such as blue cheese or goat, making this wrap the perfect match for this crisp and hoppy beer. Grilled meats and saucy barbecues also make for great additions to any imperial IPA. For the last day of national craft beer week, we will feature the Blueberry Blonde made with fresh blueberries, stay posted!


Craft Beer Lineup Series: Nightlatch American Stout

Tiramasu in a Glass

Cheers to farm fresh beers! Today’s craft beer spotlight is on the Nightlatch American Stout. Fun fact: Nightlatch is a noun, meaning a door locking having a spring bolt operated from outside by key. Being the third featured beer in our series, the Night Latch exhibits a strong body and presence with 6.6% ABV. This creamy stout is big on flavor! It is sensible and well balanced, with a roasty, soft chocolate finish.

On our menu, the Nightlatch is comparable to the Whoa Bucker Oatmeal stout due to the roasted coffee and chocolate notes, however, the Nightlatch is a bit sweeter. We suggest pairing the Nightlatch with our brewer’s grain brownie, which is made with the leftover Nightlatch grain making this a killer combo for anyone with a sweet tooth. Stay tuned for our next entry on the Throatlatch Imperial IPA, for the fourth of the craft beer spotlight series!
