DuClaw Dirty Little Freak


From the Brewer –Dirty Little Freak Coconut Caramel Chocolate Brown Ale, first brewed in 2014, takes the traditional American Brown Ale and gives it a sensual new twist – Coconut!

But if you submit to our Dirty Little Freak, be warned: there is no safe word.”

DuClaw Old Flame


From the Brewer – “From the start, our full-bodied, 7% abv dark amber Old Ale flirts with sweet, malty aroma accented with notes of molasses and dark fruit, and seducing you with a complex flavor profile of rich caramel malt flavor and molasses, before surprising you with just enough (hop) bitterness to keep everything from getting too sweet. First brewed in 2002 and released each January, our heart-breakingly delicious Old Flame will leave you yearning to rekindle the spark each year.”

From the Brewer – “We planned to release the 2010 Recovery Ale as a follow-up to our 2009 Correction Ale, but we weren’t quite recovering….WTF!  So we tried to label it the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot to abide by Army call-letters, but we were told that we couldn’t use the word ‘Whiskey’ on a beer label…WTF!

Long Trail Triple Bag Ale

From the Brewer – “Triple Bag is brewed in a small batch from single infusion that uses only the first runnings of the mash. The result is a brew made from only the purest part of the grains, providing a uniquely rich and dense flavor, with an aroma reminiscent of the finest dessert wines. This brew is naturally carbonated and is an example of brewing purity that is rarely experienced by those other than brewers themselves.”
