"Did I Brew That" Urkel Imperial IPA

Full disclosure...we were trying to make a BIG ASS IPA (which we did! 9.5%) and at the same time make it pretty piney (which we didn't). Instead, what we got was something not intended but still awesome! Big with tons of hops, but not in the overpowering way. Slightly sweet, and different...and we dug it. Warm like a red sweater and a little different...just like Steve.

Grain: 2-Row, Crystal, Munich, Victory

Hops: Amarillo, Simcoe, Cascase, Nelson Sauvin, "LAUURRAAAAAA!"

Kracklehead Imperial Pale

Sooo...it's time we told you something. When CHBC founder Kyle Stevens isn't concocting new recipes or burning himself on the mash-tun, he spends his time rocking around the world with his "nerd-rock" band Kirby Krackle. What happened when he decided to combine his two loves into a craft-beer/nerd-rock yeasty Voltron? 

Kracklehead Imperial Pale is brewed in tribute to the Kirby Krackle fans around the world known as, "Krackleheads". Get your nerd-rock on! 

Grains: 2-Row Pale, Caramel, Munich

Hops: Magunum, Mosaic, Cascade, Nerds

James Frango Imperial Porter (Brewed with Orange Peel and Chocolate)

Named after one of America's favorite actors with questionable acting skills, James Frango is an Imperial Porter clocking in around 8% and was originally brewed in the spirit of the holiday and our love of Frango chocolates. We have no morals though, and plan on brewing this year round and not only during the birth of the Baby Jesus. 


Grains: 2-Row Pale, Roasted Barely, Chocolate Malt, Honey Malt, Flaked Oats, Black Malt, Caramel

Hops: Magnum, Cascade, Saaz, Seth Rogan Bromance

Hair Did, Nails Did Imperial Blonde Ale

Girl, I know you did not just call a beer that! Yes, yes we did and mostly because we're white guys with black glasses from Seattle so it makes obvious sense, right? Right! 

Sometimes momma's gotta let loose, so we brewed this Imperial Blonde to pair with letting out your inner diva (can you see ours?) and celebrating the summer like the queen you are. Traditionally, blonde ales lean heavy on the malt end of things. Ours does too, but because we also DON'T GIVE A we added a good dose of Mosaic for this single hop offering.

Grains: 2-Row, Vienna, Wheat Malt, Flaked Barely

Hops: Mosaic, Sassy

"You Down With I.P.P?" Imperial Pumpkin Porter

Pumpkin Beer Season is the best season and we bring it back early-90's Hip-Hop style with "You Down With I.P.P?" Imperial Pumpkin Porter. Using the base of our "Zombie Jesus" Imperial Porter, we add pumpkin spices, cloves, and lots of fall fashions. Look for it on tap this Fall! 

Grains: 2-Row Pale, Roasted Barely, Chocolate Malt, Honey Malt, Flaked Oats, Black Malt, Caramel

Hops: Magnum, Cascade, Saaz

Spices: All-spice, Cinnamon, Clove, Vanilla, Headless Horsemen, Naughty By Nature cassettes

Starlord's Mixtape / Groot Drank Imperial Red Ale

I love red ales. I also love comic books. I'm also really excited for the new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movie coming out this summer and brewed a beer in honor of nerds like me everywhere! This beer is like a set of twins in the fact that they come from the same recipe, but we used two different yeasts which created very distinct flavors. I guess you have to track them both down to see what we're talking about...lucky you!  

Grains: 2-Row, Vienna, Caramunich II, and Black Patent, Cosmic Cube

Hops: Columbus, Nugget, Chinook, Cascade, Northern Brewer, and Centennial.

Banshee Wail Imperial Scotch Ale

There is a legend in Scotland that says whenever someone is about to die, you can hear a Banshee wailing off in the distance. Um, maybe they're just pissed because the beer ran out? Charging Hippo Banshee Wail Imperial Scotch Ale is a tribute to the awesome legend and a hint of X-Men fanboyism for "Banshee" aka Sean Cassidy. Purposefully not too sweet, but pretty strong at 9.5% so be careful son! 

Grains: 2-Row, Munich, Special B (Beyonce), and Smoked malt

Hops: Nugget, Raccoon

Zombie Jesus Imperial Porter

What was first brewed as a joke recipe with some friends but quickly turned into a yearly tradition every year at Easter. "Zombie Jesus" Imperial Porter is a nod our national holiday with a little bit of counter-culture thrown into the mash tun to keep it interesting. Brewed with Black Patent, Chocolate, Caramel and Crystal Malts, then generously hopped with Magnum, Cascade and Saaz, "Zombie Jesus" finishes in the boil with a healthy does of Cadbury Creme Eggs (sans foil) to give it that official holiday kick. When we're feeling extra generous, we soak oak-chips in Woodford Reserve before adding to the fermenters.

This is a big kid beer...for big kid Easter baskets.

Grains: 2-Row Pale, Roasted Barely, Chocolate Malt, Honey Malt, Flaked Oats, Black Malt, Caramel

Hops: Magnum, Cascade, Saaz, Eternal Salvation

Freckleitis Summer ISA

Hey, nobody's doing a ISA these days are they? Good, didn't think so... 

Seriously though, there's something awesome about having a beer that you can have a few of without it having to be adult nap times. "Freckleitis" Summer ISA is a tribute to my wife and all the other lovely gingery ladies out there who's face explodes with summer letting us know the season is upon us! Low ABV action on this one with a hop bite to keep the Lupulin gods happy. Made for backyard grilling, beach wandering, and Xbox-ing. Hey, I'm not trying to tell you how to live your life.

Grains: 2-Row, Crystal.

Hops: Citra, Amarillo, Cascade, cute redheds

Kingdom Of Cascadia Dark Ale

The concept of a Cascadian utopia is an interesting one, and though I was born and raised in Seattle, the idea of in crocs and being too polite at four-way stops makes me uneasy. How about we just keep making good beer for everyone else? Crisis adverted! 

A lot of controversy over who made the first CDA, but just know I was the 4,258th. More than a little smoke in this one, and that's the way I like it. A hop bill consisting of buds only starting with the letter, "C"? Done!

Grains: 2-Row, Chocolate Malt, Caramel, Carafa.

Hops: Cascade, Chinook, Columbus, Portlandia
