We would like to Thank all the Bars, Restaurants, Customers and Friends who serve Tighthead and help support local craft beer!



Comfortably Blonde (Blonde Ale):         ABV – 4.8% , IBU -  19.8, SRM - 3.3
Comfortably Blonde is an easy drinking American Blonde Ale.  This blonde is lighter and less bitter than traditional Pale Ales yet contains plenty of malt sweetness to support the ample additions of Crystal hops.  Brewed with American Ale yeast, this is a perfect gateway beer for the mainstream American Pilsner beer drinker.  We hope to convert the masses and make them comfortable with this perfectly crafted session beer.

Scarlet Fire (Red Ale):              ABV – 5.6% , IBU -  30.2, SRM - 15.1
Scarlet Fire is an American style Red Ale.  The Name coming from the reference to the playful, improvisational transitions between Grateful Dead song’s Scarlet Begonias and Fire on the Mountain,  has a nice balance of malt sweetness from caramel malt and subtle toasty notes from roasted barley.    The beer is brewed with American Ale yeast, and the hops are East Kent Golding’s, paying tribute to its heritage as an Irish Red Ale.

Irie IPA (India Pale Ale):                ABV - 7.8% , IBU -  100+, SRM -5.4
Irie is a malty and complex IPA.   Named for the Jamaican word “Irie” meaning “good, excellent, great or of good quality,” this beer is all of those and more.  With an original gravity of about 1.070, the malt profile provides a sturdy backbone for the generous amount of Simcoe, Centennial and Columbus hops.   American Ale yeast ferments this beer cleanly allowing the dank hop qualities to come through in all their glory… IRIE Mon!

Boxcar Porter  (Robust Porter):     ABV - 5.2% , IBU -  42.2, SRM - 35.4
Boxcar is a Robust Porter with hints of roast coffee and mild chocolate.  Featuring a traditional English grist bill of Maris Otter pale malt, black patent, two different chocolate malt’s and East Kent Golding hops,  this beer will keep you warm by the fire pint after pint.  The beer is named for the many freight trains that pass by the front of the brewery day and night!    Cheers! 

Chilly Water (American Pale Ale):        ABV - 4.8% , IBU -  40.1, SRM – 5.4
Wheat based Pale Ale that is fermented very clean with American ale yeast giving it a crisp, refreshing finish.  Citra and Amarillo hops provide an aroma and flavor of mango, tangerine and other soft citrus fruit. Warning, this beer may cause a widespread panic… hint at the name’s origin!

Hat Trick Tripel (Belgian Tripel):    ABV - 8.9% , IBU - 27.4, SRM – 4
Belgian style Tripel ale brewed in the tradition and with respect for the Trappist monks who have brewed this beer for centuries.  Using European pilsner malt, aromatics, Sterling and Czech Saaz hops.

Reformator  (Doppelbock):  ABV – 7.5%,  IBU – 18.2,  SRM – 24.4
A Bavarian Marzen style lager, our Oktoberfest is malty, complex and perfectly balanced with traditional German Noble hops.  A Fest Bier originally brewed for the wedding celebration of Crown Prince Ludwig in 1810 in Munich and continues annually as one of the largest beer celebrations in the world. 

Knock On  (Belgian Dubbel):     ABV – 7.0%,  IBU – 60,  SRM – 8
A malty Amber Ale with fruity yeast esters and a dry, warming finish.  This authentic Belgian-style Dubbel is brewed in the tradition of the Trappist monks who created and have brewed this style of beer for centuries.

Kracklauer Monster (Imperial Red Ale):   ABV – 7.5%,  IBU - 80,  SRM – 16
This beer is a collaborative effort from the brilliant minds of Park Street and Tighthead.  We used a blend of 6 malts to create a sweet, malty backbone which complements the aggressive hop bitterness and fruity, resiny hop flavor and aroma from Simcoe, Galaxy, and Mosaic hops. 

Bears Choice (India Pale Ale):    ABV - 6.3% , IBU - 75, SRM – 6.4
An American IPA brewed by Billy for Angela which gives this not so traditional IPA the name.  The mix of base, specialty and aromatic malts combined with the mango and tangerine citrus from copious amounts of Mosaic hops, create a perfectly balanced IPA.  If you like IPA’s this beer will surely have you dancin’ in the streets!

Galactic Hopburst (Belgian Pale Ale):    ABV - 5% , IBU - 30, SRM – 4.7
Galactic Hopburst is a crushable Belgian pale ale combining the complex fruity esters and phenolics of our Trappist ale yeast with the distinctive citrus and passion fruit flavor and aroma of Australian Galaxy hops.

Old Kaya Dog (Barleywine):       ABV – 9.7% , IBU -  113.2, SRM – 11.4
An American Barleywine with hints of light fruit and alcohol warmth.  Brewed with American Hops and Ale yeast, this is a beer that is not to be taken lightly!  We hope you enjoy Old Kaya Dog as much as we do!  

Barrel Aged Old Kaya Dog (Barleywine):   ABV – 9.7% , IBU -  113.2, SRM – 11.4
An American Barleywine with hints of light fruit and alcohol warmth.  Brewed with American Hops and Ale yeast, this is a beer that is not to be taken lightly!  The beer was laid to rest for 6 months in freshly emptied Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels giving it a pronounced bourbon and oak infused flavor and aroma!  This will not last long… Enjoy Now!!

Cask Conditioned Ales:  We now serve cask conditioned ale 7 days a week poured through our new Angram Beer Engine!  Styles change... like a box of chocolates... you never know what you'll get :  )

Note:  Be sure to check back often to see what seasonal and special beers we have brewed.  Not all beers will be distributed and most will only be available in our brewery tap room!
