Ladyface Ale Companie brews their award-winning Belgian, French and American ales in the Agoura Hills of California. La Grisette is a thirst-quenching Belgian farmhouse ale akin to saison, which took silver in the 2018 Las Angeles International Beer Competition.
90 Shilling is Odell Brewing Co.'s smooth and complex flagship beer, a medium-bodied amber ale with a distinct burnished copper color. Only the highest quality beers were taxed 90 shillings in the old Scottish taxing system -- you’ll find this ale brilliantly refreshing and worth every shilling.
This hopped-up take on a classic American lager from Parleaux Beer Lab is whirlpooled with lemongrass and then dry-hopped with Lemondrop hops, lending it a rich, bright aroma with a smooth lemon candy-like finish.
This classic, peppery, dry saison comes from Night Shift Brewing. A simple grist coupled with an assertive bittering hop addition help accentuate the dry characteristics and give a solid base for the phenols from the yeast. This beer took the silver medal in the Classic Saison category the 2017 Great American Beer Festival.
This extra special bitter is a more hop-forward version of the English bitter from Denizens Brewing Co. With classic ESB notes of toffee and biscuit, they use a mix of English and American hops to create a floral and herbal balance with the malt.
The Kentucky common was a once popular recipe that originated in the Louisville, Kentucky area. Lost to Prohibition and recently resurrected, this has once again become a popular style of beer across the Bluegrass state and beyond.
This beer recipe combines the best of two European styles: centuries-old Nordic sahti and malty-sweet German bock. Juniper berries and rye are common sahti ingredients that, combined with the malt character and strength of bock, make for this delicious, deep amber juniper rye bock.
This recipe comes to us courtesy of homebrewers Rafa Palacios and Sergio Medina from Cádiz, Spain. Zymurgy editor-in-chief Dave Carpenter loved drinking this beer at the 2018 annual meeting of the Associación de Cerveceros Caseros Españoles (ACCE), the Spanish homebrewers association. We contacted Rafa and Sergio, and they kindly shared their recipe. Lace up your Docs and brew a batch of Black Hole Sun today. You won’t regret it.

Funkwerks Saison is the result of many backyard test batches, with the final recipe being a Great American Beer Festival-winning example of the classic Belgian-style saison. Expect some fruity character to accompany the yeast-driven spiciness.
This IPA won Frank T. Mitchell best of show at the Third Annual Bruce Street Brewfest Homebrew Competition. Frank adds, “If you want do it right, chase the chemistry. The sulfate:chloride ratio does make a difference. You can turn this beer out perfectly in 10 days or less. I have found the wheat component makes a big deal; try not to cut it back too much, which is why this one dropped a little clearer than I wanted with the CaraRed addition. And the first dry hop needs to be early enough to allow for the yeast biotransformation haze effect.”
In addition to taking silver at the 2018 GABF Pro-Am Competition, this beer by Jim Todd has won gold medals at the Urban Knaves of Grain’s 2018 Drunk Monk Challenge, the 2018 BOSS Charlie Orr Memorial Chicago Cup Challenge, and the 2018 National Homebrew Competition first round.
