Our signature beer has its beginning in the great taste of European style lagers. Natural yeasts, locally gown malt and hops provide for the aromatic flavor that won't confuse the palate. This recipe originated from the East Anglia region of the United Kingdom and was brought across the pond for your taste pleasure.

Brewed in the time honored German ale tradition of Köln, Germany, 67 Alaska is very pale with a mild though assertive flavor from noble-pedigree hops from the Hallertau region round out the aroma and sweetness of Continental malts.

Malt: Weyermann Pils, The Swaen Hell
Hops: Hallertau Tradition, Hallertau Mittelfruh

Born in America but with a soul recalling a distant English ancestry, Tanglefoot is one of the flagship India Pale Ales from the Royal Docks Brewing Company.
Tanglefoot is an American IPA in that it is a decidedly hoppier cousin to the historical British beers from which the style’s name is borrowed. The beer features a piney and resinous nose with a pleasant, rounded bitterness from healthy doses of American Nugget, Cascade and Mosaic hops.
Tanglefoot reveals its storied English heritage as it offsets the massive hop charge with a full bodied palate and sturdy malt backbone thanks to the British-grown, floor-malted Maris Otter and Harrington barley; prized throughout the world for their superior flavour and aromatics.
The Tanglefoot Legend:
The 12th Century poet and priest, La3amon was the first to chronicle the Arturian tradition. He is also the source of the legend of Pendragon’s ales.

Original Middle English:
Beore wes iworht in Aualun
mið wiȝlel-fulle craften
to don ure vniwinen wa

Æft he likeð þan voxe
driueð wod and wild
ȝeond dalef & ȝeond dunes
bi-læfde mid heore tungen
hoe lette baðe ablenden & teȝen
heom lette fæt to-dælden dome
La3amon

Translation:
A beer wrought in Avalon
with magic crafted
to do our enemies woe

driving them like a fox
mad and wild
over hills and dales
leaving them with tongues
both tied and blind
and their feet tangled dumb Read Less

According to legend, King Arthur’s father, Uther Pendragon, was possessed of two magical ales. Pendragon RareWit is our homage to the first of those beers - magically ‘wrought in Avalon’ to refresh knights after battle and imbue them with the ‘courage of the Red Dragon’. Rather than hops, Pendragon RareWit relies on a pantheon of herbs and spices - many native to the Welsh Countryside - to provide a refreshing citrusy floral balance to the sweetness of barley malt and unmalted wheat.

When a honey bee finds a source of sugar, it returns to the hive to tell other foragers what direction and the distance to the source through a unique movement known as the Waggle Dance.

Yardarm
A hop-forward, refreshing and summery Session IPA brewed to a starting gravity of SG 1.044 for lower alcohol and crispier body for hot days on the patio.
Crime of Passionfruit

Someone once said that brewing an IPA with fruit was a crime. Well, call the cops because we’ve made an IPA that’s light in body, light in colour but BOLD in every other way. An obscene amount of passionfruit coupled with about an acre of Citra and local Second Sons Cascade hops produces an IPA loaded with juicy, peachy-passion flavour and aromatics that are simply steaming with tropical hop character.

May 26 LIVE MUSIC - Ryan Humbert Join us for a night of great music from this amazing local talent! Ryan Humbert live in the taproom starting at 8pm. “One of the hardest-working singer/songwriters on the local scene” - The Akron Beacon Journal Drawing influence from musical greats like Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams and Elvis Costello, Ryan Humbert’s songs mix the honesty and lyricism of roots music with the inventive, infectious arrangements of rock and pop. Having performed with Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders, Train, Elvis Costello, Chris Isaak, Third Eye Blind, Matt Nathanson, Pete Yorn, Foreigner, The Zac Brown Band, Josh Ritter, Shelby Lynne, The Gin Blossoms and more, his unique style of American/Pop transcends barriers of genre and time, making his music as much at home in the 21st century as it would be in the classic rock era. Hailing from the Akron-Canton area of Ohio, Ryan’s energetic, crowd-pleasing shows and loyal fan base have made him a local music staple for over a decade at such notable venues as Playhouse Square, Blossom Music Center, The House of Blues, The Beachland Ballroom, Scene Pavilion at Nautica, The Akron Civic Theatre, The Canton Palace Theatre, The Kent Stage, The Tangier, Lock 3 Live and more. The Cleveland Free Times claimed “Humbert is a dynamo…eager and rapid-fire…a catalyst for and enthusiastic supporter of the Ohio music scene.” His recent releases, though, have propelled him to recognition on a national level as well. In 2009, Ryan released Old Souls, New Shoes, an independent, fan-funded pop/rock album recorded in Nashville, featuring members of Third Eye Blind, The Counting Crows, The Black Crowes and more. The follow-up, 2012’s folk-laced pop album Sometimes the Game Plays You, has been in heavy rotation on “The Coffee House” on Sirius XM Radio with the song “I Will Find My Own Way.” While on tour supporting that album, he recorded a 5-song in-studio performance at the Sirius XM studios in New York City. Sometimes The Game Plays You features musicians who have played with Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, Johnny Cash, Robert Plant, John Mellencamp, Patty Griffin, and Lucinda Williams as well as members of his own band. Most recently, Ryan’s new album, Half Way Home, will be released in November 2014. Combining the rock influence of Old Souls with Sometimes the Game Plays You’s singer/songwriter flavor, the album was recorded in just six days in Nashville, TN. The album features some of Ryan’s most personal writing to date. The title song, an upbeat track about overcoming obstacles, was inspired by his mother’s recent battle with breast cancer, while “California to Ohio,” co-written with Grammy-winner Kim Richey, tells the story of his grandfather’s odyssey from Camp Pendleton, California to Hartville, Ohio to meet his first child in February, 1953. Ryan also co-wrote five of the songs with fellow Ohio musician Tracey Thomas, including the album-closing “Space Enough,” which features the legendary McCrary sisters (Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Buddy Miller, Stevie Wonder) on backing vocals. “When I was young, I never knew I would end up being a singer or songwriter,” Humbert says. He would often peruse his father’s extensive CD collection, test-spinning albums by Waylon Jennings, Bob Seger, and Neil Young. “I didn’t find my niche though until I listened to Americana artists like Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Bruce Springsteen, and Lucinda Williams,” Humbert says. “That’s the music that truly inspired me, but still I listen to everything from George Jones to Arcade Fire. I’m just drawn to hooks. I’ve bought records by The Clash and Patsy Cline at the same time.” Humbert attended the Pittsburgh Art Institute and graduated with a graphic arts degree. He worked in promotions for the National Gallery of American’s Young Inventors and was the Development Director for the Akron Triple-A radio station 91.3 The Summit FM, where he created the station’s logo and helped boost membership numbers. In addition, he has also produced for many local Ohio artists, the most notable being singer Tracey Thomas, onetime singer of the Akron ‘80s new wave sensation Unit 5. Humbert’s savvy marketing approach, his networking skills, and his sincere commitment to his charity work have bolstered his music profile in an honest, fluid, and very natural way. #RoyalDocksBrewing #RDB #DrinkCantonBeer #MindTheTap #LiveMusic #Music #Live #Band #RyanHumbert View all events
