Inspired by 4 Beer Traditions

We brew and serve excellent beer inspired by European and American beer traditions. These traditions — Belgium, the British Isles, Central Europe, and the Americas — provide the inspiration for our four flagship beers.

Flagships

Glass Castle

Pilsener

ABV 5.0% | IBU 40

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.

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.

Quantum Shift celebrates an East-Coast approach to IPA in which malt flavor and sweetness accompanies intense hop flavor and aroma. Copious additions of late kettle hops combine with bready pale malt and flavorful crystal and biscuit malts. A classic English ale yeast contributes its own fruity profile for an IPA with a rich malt backbone and an incredibly juicy hop profile.

Chronicle

Tropical Stout

ABV 6.5% | IBU 26

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.

Paper Lantern

Witbier/Blanche

ABV 4.8% | IBU 8

Paper Lantern is our version of the “white” beer style hailing from the fields of Flanders and the hills of Wallonia. Light and effervescent, Paper Lantern is perfect for any occasion! Indian coriander, Caribbean Curaçao orange peel, and a few secret spices make Paper Lantern citrusy and refreshing.

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.

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.

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.
