We are extremely excited for a soft launch of Five Suits Brewing this weekend! We know everyone is eager to try all of our incredible beers and we are working hard to prepare them all. For this weekend, we are offering two of our favorites that we are confident will make you double down and get more!
Opening Night Haze 7.74% ABV 52 IBU
Our brewers are extra proud of this one because this was our very first beer to be brewed here. This brew boasts an intense tropical/citrus aroma with a smooth, juicy mouthfeel. Exercise caution as this nearly 8% beer goes down like grapefruit juice.
Pink Boots Rye IPA 5.7% ABV 55 IBU
Barrel Harbor’s final beer brewed was a fundraising collab with Five Suits to benefit the Pink Boots Society. We started with a simple base malt mix of Pilsner & 2 Row, then added some rye for fun. We shot for a mid range bitterness, saving all of our special Pink Boots Blend hop charge for the whirlpool & dry hop. Rye really comes through with smooth & well rounded bitterness that lasts through each sip. With Azacca, El Dorado, & Loral hops in the blend, you can expect notes of citrus and pineapple to tickle your fancy.
Follow Suit West Coast IPA 7.3% ABV 74 IBU
A classic take on old school West Coast IPAs. A strong, clean bitterness lasts through the finish; balanced out by residual malty sweetness. Dank, resiny pine flavor highlighted by citrus. Classic centennial marries well with Citra, Mosaic, and Amarillo. A touch of Azacca, just because.
Pit BOS Hefeweizen 5.5% ABV 10 IBU
Pit BOS hefeweizen is the quintessential summer beer, perfect on a hot day. Highlighted by a light banana/citrus flavor that gives way to a unique clove spiciness that tingles the tongue. This beer is fittingly named “Pit BOS” Hef because this recipe won Best Of Show at not one, but two separate national competitions for homebrewers in 2016 & 2017. Five Suits Brewing now brings the magic of this award winning Hefeweizen recipe to the public market for everyone to try.
SMASH the Limit Pale Ale 6.8% ABV 35 IBU
KISS – As we continue to serve curbside only, we decided to keep it simple for everyone. Simple doesn’t have to mean bland however, so we opted for one of the very best base malts: Golden Promise. Golden Promise is a barley grown in Scotland that adds a sweet bready character to blend perfectly with our choice in hops: Mandarina Bavaria. Mandarina Bavaria originated in Germany and is the daughter of Cascade, Hallertau Blanc & Hull Melon. With a big dry hop punch, you can expect flavors of tangerine & citrus. This SMASH is sure to please your palate.
Cover You Snout Stout 6.7% ABV 45 IBU
This aggressive American stout was brewed with your masked faces in mind. Exploding with enough aroma to penetrate the thickest of masks. Big dark chocolate flavor with hints of roasted coffee. Contains lactose.
Vigorish Vienna Lager 6.2% ABV 19 IBU
There’s always a small price to pay to get in on the action. Thankfully, our Vigorish Vienna is a sure thing with a deep copper color, malt forward bread crust flavor, & clean, crisp finish. Medium-low bitterness balances out this malty treat.
The Wetsuit Wet Hopped San Diego Style Ale 8% ABV 24 IBU
Fresh fruity tart aroma of pineapple and stone fruit. This fundraising wet hop beer appears light, crisp, & clean, but packs a punch at 8%. Enjoy this one off seasonal delight before it’s gone.
“The Razz Pack” Raspberry Wheat 5.4% ABV 16 IBU
We took the same 50/50 wheat/Pilsner base that we use for our Hefeweizen, but changed up the fermentation for less phenolics. Then we took over 40lbs of fresh, 100% pure raspberry puree and blended it in with our beer until the aroma was bursting with raspberry, stopping just short of an overpowering fruit flavor. This wheat beer lets you know that the raspberry is there, but doesn’t cross the line. What you get is a light tart flavor up front, rounded off with a raspberry sweetness that dissipates quickly, leaving you craving your next sip.
