Mondo Mundo

Mexican-Style Vienna Lager

ABV 5.6%

The second beer in our EXPLORER SERIES, Mondo Mundo makes an excellent pairing with a ride range of intensely flavored cuisine. With a lush malt backbone but a light frame it makes this the perfect complement for heavy flavors like mole, hot salsa and seared carne asada while maintaining a high degree of drinkability. We brewed MONDO MUNDO with a large portion of Vienna Malt for that undeniably delicious but subtle malt sweetness balanced by a lasting impression of toasty malt character. We lagered this 5 weeks to create an incredibly round and smooth drinking character. Notable commercial examples that are similar would include Negro Modelo and Full Sail Sesión Negra.

Sisyphus

Hazy IPA | RETURNS JANUARY 2020!

ABV 7.2% | IBU 88

Named as a tribute to the monumental task of opening Silver Branch, this tropical bomb puts forth huge aromas of pineapple, followed by peach and mango supported by a piney backbone throughout with a bitter structure reminiscent of grapefruit juice. Dry Hopped at a rate of almost 3lb/BBL, we dry hopped this during active fermentation to amplify the intense and distinctive tropical fruit aroma and flavor throughout.

The Oracle Speaks

Weizenbock

ABV 8.2% | IBU 22

The Oracle Speaks is a pale weizenbock with a deep orange hue and a rich, bready malt flavor from dark Munich and Vienna malts. Brewed with 50% pale wheat malt, this beer exudes huge banana and clove aroma and flavor backed up by rich malt flavor, with a mild alcohol warmth in the finish. Well-known commercial examples include Aventinus and Vitus. Fans of authentic German-style wheat beers will love this. The clove and banana flavors derive from the classic Weihenstephan 380 Hefeweizen yeast and precision temperature control. The hopping of the beer is very low–most of the balance for the malt comes from the slight bitterness and drying that comes from the high alcohol content. With very few readily available commercial examples this a truly unique beer.

Charlemagne’s Nightmare

Double IPA

ABV 8% | IBU All Late Hops

Charlemagne’s Nightmare is Silver Branch’s biggest IPA yet: a double IPA clocking in at 8 percent designed to conquer your taste buds, just as Charlemagne conquered Europe. Charlemagne’s seat of power was Cologne, home to subtle, stately Koelsch. Fermented with a traditional Koelsch yeast, Charlemagne’s Nightmare was conceived to be the antithesis of this laid back style. Copiously hopped with Columbus, Amarillo, Cryo-Cashmere, and Summit, and double dry-hopped with Meridian, Citra and Summit, there is nothing subtle about Charlemagne’s Nightmare. Expect a juicy melange of tropical fruit finishing with a firm, resinous grapefruit finish.

SQUEEGEE MASTER

Gose

4.7%

Squeegee Master is light-bodied and refreshing. Inspired by traditional German Gose, Squeegee Master showcases balanced salinity and a characterful coriander flavor throughout. Bright brine and a lemony-tart flavor hit your pallet immediately and linger pleasantly. This is one beer that begs you to take another sip with a pretty awesome back story.

Silver Century

Abbey Quadruppel

11.2%

Silver Century Abbey Quadruple brings big, rich aromas of figs and dates candied with nutmeg and mace w/ a generous measure of rum. Deep flavors of dates, figs and raisins are backed by rich malt and a pleasing, lingering alcohol warmth. This 11.2% quad is perfect for any time, but may reach it’s pinnacle as a part of your holiday dinner dessert.

Oktoberfest

Märzen

With copious amounts of Veteran’s Blend hops and honey, this Norse-inspired beer was brewed to toast the contribution of  our Veterans to this great nation.

Gold Line

Classic American Pilsner

ABV 5% | IBU 45

Crisp and crushable, this pre-prohibition Pilsner uses 30% corn and six-row malt. A mild sweet corn flavor and grainy pilsner malt marry beautifully with floral and mildly spicy Sterling, Mt. Hood and Liberty hops grown in Oregon. Significantly more hoppy than today’s mass-produced pilsners, Gold Line is eminently drinkable but also interesting enough for a craft beer audience. Perfect for a summertime picnic!

Vespucci 3

Dry Hopped Pilsner

5%

In 1501 Amerigo Vespucci determined that South America was a separate continent—a fact far more important than most beer lovers realize. Unwittingly, explorers played matchmaker between a cold-tolerant yeast from Patagonia and a long-established Eurasian brewing yeast. The result of this liaison was the yeast used to ferment lager beer. We brewed Vespucci Connection as a classic German Pilsner with a small dry hop to celebrate this most positive of intercontinental connections!

Gilded Age

Golden Strong

9.2%

Golden Strong Ale was Belgium’s answer to beer drinkers’ increasing preference for golden lagers in the early 20th century. Lore has it that the brewer deemed his creation a “devil of a beer.” We consider it devilish for its combination of easy drinkability yet substantial strength. Gilded Age is beautiful subtle—fruity apple and pear notes from the yeast and just a tad spicy from the Saaz hops with a bit of alcohol warmth in the finish.

Bockbier

6.8% ABV

The Gnomes LOVE the holidays and have long been frustrated that elves are seen as the official holiday “diminutive being”, but they don’t let it get them down! Instead, they celebrate with this strong holiday saison, brewed with dark Belgian candi sugar for a bit of caramel complexity alongside the classic Saison pepper and spice yeast character.

Endless Joy

We brewed Vespucci Connection as a classic German Pilsner with a small dry hop to celebrate this most positive of intercontinental connections

Squid Vicious

Double Oat IPA

8.6%

While he is used to being mistaken as the front man for a 70s punk band, Squid Vicious is actually an aficionado of aggressively hopped IPAs. This, his namesake beer, is made with naked oats, oat malt, and flaked oats and generously hopped with Sabro, Citra, Galaxy, and Hallertau Blanc. Drinking Squid Vicious is like swimming in hops!

Lord Squeegee Tropical Cocktail

Imperial Gose

7.8% ABV

You won’t settle for just any ordinary sour. With Lord Squeegee at your service, you don’t have to. He stops at nothing to ensure you receive only the very best. Pineapple, tangerine, and a hint of orgeat give this refreshingly tart ale a flavor reminiscent of a tropical-inspired cocktail!

Delusional Optimist

Hazy IPA

7.8% ABV

Starting a business requires a high degree of optimism, and sometimes, a certain disconnectedness from reality. Early on, one of Silver Branch’s founders was fondly nicknamed “Delusional Optimist” by his colleagues for the accuracy of his time estimates. We named this hazy IPA in his honor—and it only took twice as long as it was predicted it would take! Made with Citra “incognito” hop concentrates, Sabro Cryohops and Grüngeist and Hallertau Blanc, this beer will make you feel eternally optimistic!

Gnomic statisticians recently determined that the probability of you finding this beer tasty is 100%.

Sacred Table

Convergent Worlds Vol. 1

ABV 7.5%

The first in our Convergent Worlds series which highlights the distinct world views of various brewer’s coming together. Pours an orange haze crowned by a fluffy white head. Generously hopped with Motueka, Palisade and Citra. Tropical aromatics are complimented by a pillowy mouthfeel that displays a surge of lime zest, berry and peach rings with every sip.

Chronicle

Foreign Extra Stout

ABV 6.5%

Tropical stout has evolved as it has migrated from its Irish birthplace to being brewed in the American, African and Asian tropics. Silver Branch’s Chronicle continues that ongoing story. We’ve married smooth roast with luscious malt to give you a beer reminiscent of dark chocolate, rich caramel, and coffee. The addition of unrefined Colombian panela sugar gives Chronicle a distinct rummy toffee finish.

Quantum Shift

East Coast IPA

ABV 6.2% | IBU 65

Quantum Shift will shake your sense of reality and shift your expectations of a flagship IPA. With so many hops—and new ones being bred all the time—who wants to drink the same IPA every day? Not us! We brew every batch with a different hop recipe. Expect an ever-shifting array of flavors to feed your fresh hop addiction. Check which hops you are drinking with this batch at quantumshiftIPA.com.

Glass Castle

Pilsener

ABV 5.0%

Flavorful, yet eminently drinkable. The delicate balance between bready malt and spicy and grassy Czech hops make it obvious why this beer inspired the lager revolution. Glass Castle is Silver Branch’s holy grail—getting this elusive style right reflects the passion we bring to the craft and science of brewing.

We use reverse osmosis-soft water, imported Bohemian barley and Saaz hops, and a traditional decoction mash to give you a classic Bohemian Pilsener that is smooth and satisfying.
