Full Steam AheadUnfiltered Amber Lager | 4.5% ABV | 28 IBU

In the 19th century, California brewers were unable to control fermentation temperatures so they were obliged to use their lager yeast at temperatures warmer than customary for traditional lager.
We used a new hop variety from the state of Oregon for bittering, flavor and aroma in this beer. Very few brewers have had a chance to try out Meridian. We are excited by the opportunity.

Wild Farmwell Wheat Unfiltered5.3 % ABV | 30 IBU
Jasper Akerboom and Peter Lee are both scientists at Howard Hughes' Janelia Farm, located in Ashburn. Taking a scientific approach towards brewing (Jasper has a PhD in microbiology and food technology, Peter has worked in large-scale process and discovery chemistry in industry), they wanted to focus on beers brewed with locally isolated yeasts. Jasper isolated several interesting strains and brewed small-scale test batches. After meeting Lost Rhino brewmaster Favio Garcia, they knew they shared the same passion for locally crafted beer using local ingredients, including local yeast. The idea for a summer beer using local yeast was born. They teamed up and designed a hoppy wheat beer for summer: Wild Farmwell Wheat. Farmwell is the old name for Ashburn where we isolated the strain.

Zlaty PilsnerBohemian Pilsner | 5.6% ABV | 42 IBU
Zlatý Rhino is an American interpretation of a classic Bohemian-style Pilsner, which takes its name from the Czech word for "Golden". Brewed with imported floor-malted Bohemian spring barley (the Tolar and Bojos varieties) and 100% Czech Saaz hops, this beer brings a balance of malty sweetness and delicate bitterness, thanks to the use of a painstaking decoction mash schedule and long kettle boil. Modeled after the beer that won first prize in the inaugural Pilsner Urquell Master Homebrewer competition in Washington, DC in 2011, this is an easy- drinking beer for the warmer days ahead. As the Czechs say, "Na zdraví!"
