Blue Stallion Beers
Check out what beer styles we brew at Blue Stallion Brewing Co.
Originally brewed in Munich, this classic dark lager has become quite popular throughout Germany. We use a large amount of Munich malts in this lager to provide a bread-like taste with a hint of caramel, which is common of this particular style of beer. We also use one of Germany's finest noble hops from the Hallertauer region to make this beer as authentic as possible. The rich and sweet aromas balanced with its deep brown color will be sure to give your senses an enjoyable overall impression.
Helles translates into “bright” in German and is the light colored alternative to a Dunkel in the southern region of Germany. Our Helles offers a crisp and clean taste with a medium body that is both thirst quenching and refreshing. With a mild grainy aroma and frothy white head, this supreme example of the classic German lager is a beautiful pale yellow with medium carbonation and is served in both liter and half-liter sizes.
This beer was first brewed in Bohemia, but was later adapted by many breweries in Germany.
Today, the German Pilsner is the most popular style of beer in Germany because of its refreshing bitterness and easy drinkability. For our unique Pils, we used 2 specific kinds of German noble hops which gives this beer a crisp and bitter taste with a medium-dry finish which lingers into the aftertaste. The use of the typical German malt provides our Pils with a dense and rich head, which is common for this style of beer.
An historic specialty of the city of Bamberg, this type of beer is based on an old German legend. An accidental fire in a small regional brewery exposed the stored malt to the smoke for several hours. Because the brewer did not have the money to afford a new batch of malt, he was forced to use the smoked malt in his beer production. To his surprise, the townspeople loved the newly created beer; which in return became a new beer style in Germany. During the production of our smoked lager, we use a beechwood-smoked malt from a famous German malt house. This dark brown lager gives off a smoky and meat-like aroma. The complementary flavor follows the aroma characteristics with a balancing blend of smoke and malt along with a slight bitterness.
This traditional German wheat beer is brewed after an old German law that requires at least 50% of the grains to be malted wheat. Our style of wheat beer is made with 55% wheat and a famous German yeast strain which produces a strong banana and subtle clove flavor. The high wheat content and yeast also contributes to the cloudy yet light gold appearance. This type of beer is favored during the summertime but is brewed year-round at Blue Stallion Brewing Co.
This traditional Scottish ale gained its unique name during the 1800's when it was referred to the price of ale per barrel. The Scottish 70 is our lightest beer at Blue Stallion Brewing Co and would have cost 70 shillings back in the mid 19th century, hence the name “70 Shilling”. We only use a small amount of British hops in this beer, so it has a distinct malty sweetness as well as a slight caramel taste. This particular beer has a deep amber color and gives off a light and fruity aroma. This beer is fermented at slightly cooler temperatures to simulate the typical Scottish brewing techniques.
This smooth drinking Stout is English and not Irish in style. It is made with all English ingredients and is not as dry as typical Irish Stouts. This beer would be traditionally enjoyed in pubs in Southern England. It is a very basic Stout that lets the grains shine through but has a very mild coffee flavor and a pleasant after taste.
The Wee Heavy is also referred to as a Strong Scotch ale or 90 Shilling. This Scotch ale is the strongest out of all the Scottish beer styles and is the strongest ale we brew at Blue Stallion Brewing Co. This full-bodied beer provides a rich and malty taste along with a slight caramel flavor. Its complex aroma and deep copper color as well as its alcoholic warmth provide a smooth balance for the perfect malt-forward ale.
Our Schwarzbier, or “Black Lager,” is a refreshing take on “dark” beer. A traditional schwarzbier is essentially the recipe for a light colored lager with just enough dark malt to turn is a beautiful ruby-tinged black. Expect a touch of roast character to accompany this crisp and malty beer. Unlike a traditional stout, our schwarzbier finishes light and bready.
These beers are only available for a limited time during the year
This type of German beer was originally made as a transition between the heavy doppelbock that is enjoyed during the winter season and the lighter beer that is favored during the summertime. The Maibock is specifically associated with the springtime and the month of May, hense the name “Mai”bock. This dark gold beer gives off a strong malt aroma along with a lightly toasted scent. The German malts used in this beer dominate the flavor and we also use one of the finest German noble hops in order to give this beer an authentic and rich flavor.
This traditional German wheat beer is stronger and darker in color than its Hefeweizen counterpart. With a focus on the malt, you taste the silky texture of wheat with the subtle banana and clove tones of the yeast. With a higher alcohol content than the Hefeweizen, we balanced the flavors with a hint of hops and caramel malts. Although this beer is enjoyed year round, it was traditionally a cool-weather beer. Served in 16oz pours in a traditional wheat beer glass, the substantial and lingering head allows the aroma of the malt and yeast to show.
“Radler” literally translates to “cyclist” in German and is a preferred after-workout beverage. Light, crisp, sweet, and refreshing – our Radler is a mix of our Munich Helles and lemon-lime soda. Good on a warm day or as a refreshing change to darker and more full body brews, the Radler will satisfy.
Oktoberfest beer is also known as a Marzen, a rich malty beer with a hint of hop bitterness. The beautiful copper color reflects the caramel and pilsner malt in this seasonal brew. Oktoberfest originated for the celebration of King Ludwig I wedding in 1810 and has been a Bavaria tradition ever since. The Marzen/Oktoberfest style beer which is served during the celebration is often brewed in the spring and held cold over the summer to be tapped in spectacular fashion at the beginning of Oktoberfest in Munich. Our take on the style is slightly bitter with a pale head and is served in both liter and half-liter sizes.
A seasonal beer of German origin, Bockbier is traditionally brewed in the winter months around Christmas. The golden brown lager is sweet, relatively strong and lightly hopped. Its a big malty beer with toasty overtones that finishes cleanly. Don't let the high alcohol and malt-forward character of this Bockbier fool you. It's very smooth and just the type of beer to drink in a stein in front of the fire place.
Doppelbock is a stronger version of the traditional bockbier. Originally brewed in Munich by the Paulaner monks, it served as "liquid bread" during times of fasting. A true winter lager, our Doppelbock is dark and full-bodied. With its high alcohol content, you want to be careful how quickly you imbibe. The flavor is very malty with a hint of chocolate and roasted grain.
Our Irish Red keeps true to the malty finish of a traditional Irish Red. With a strong caramel and toffee-like malt character, a bit of toasted bread and a slight hint of bitterness round out our version of this March favorite Irish Red ales are a St. Patrick’s Day favorite and is a spring seasonal at Blue Stallion Brewing.. Served in a pub glass, enjoy this sipping beer with a meal from one of the many food vendors that visit Blue Stallion 7 days a week.
The Blue Stallion Märzen, a rich malty beer with a hint of hop bitterness. The beautiful copper color reflects the caramel and pilsner malt in this seasonal brew. Märzen, also known as an Oktoberfest-style beer, originated for the celebration of King Ludwig I wedding in 1810 and has been a Bavaria tradition ever since. The Märzen/Oktoberfest style beer which is served during the celebration is often brewed in the spring and held cold over the summer to be tapped in spectacular fashion at the beginning of Oktoberfest in Munich. Our take on the style is slightly bitter with a pale head and is served in both liter and half-liter sizes.
