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.

Brewer’s Specifics:
Malt: Weyermann Pils, The Swaen Hell
Hops: Hallertau Tradition, Hallertau Mittelfruh
IBU: 23
OG: 12.5 °P
FG: 2.7 °P
ABV: 5.24% Read Less
Prodigal IPA
The first beer brewed at our Jackson brewery! This batch, made with the 2016 Amarillo crop that features notes of melon and fresh mown hay, delivers an especially unique, smooth hop character.

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

An Imperial Stout to be reckoned with, Vlad the Impaler is a coal-black, high-gravity, high-alcohol ale with tremendous, complex flavours and aromas that hint at caramel, coffee, roasted nuts and a perhaps a wee bit of smoke with a monster mouthfeel and a warming finish. 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. Dedicated to the honey bee, our experimental American Strong Ale is big, smoky and loaded with molasses, maple syrup, honey and mosaic hops. Read Less
Yardarm
A hop-forward, refreshing and summery IPA brewed for reasonable alcohol and crispier body. Perfect for hot days on the patio. The sun is always over the yardarm somewhere in The Empire!
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.

According to legend, as told by Beedle the Bard, he who unites the Deathly Mallows is invincible. We thought that was a nice goal to have, so we stared fumbling with ingredients and cans up with this magical elixir. A Milk Stout that starts with a whif of smoky roast and culminates in a delicious toasted marshmallow sweetness that is enough to remind you of younger days around the campfire but not so much to make you forget you're drinking beer.
