Flagship APA ~ 6.2% ABV ~ 50 IBU
An American style pale ales are defined by the use of American grown hops. The hop profile of Flagship APA includes an upfront bitterness complemented with citrus and pine-like aromas followed by a small burst of tropical fruit.
Flagship American Wit ~ 5.75% ABV ~ 15 IBU
A nod to the time-honored Belgian style ale, Flagship American Wit is a refreshing, light bodied wheat beer. Prized hops from America’s Northwest region give this ale a citrusy flavor that blends with the subtle undertones of our hand ground spices.
Flagship Dark Mild ~ 4.5% ABV ~ 20 IBU
The British Mild is a popular session ale known for a soft hop character and lower alcohol content. While holding true to these classic guidelines, Flagship Dark Mild is nearly black in color due to a complex malt profile that’s bursting with flavor.
Flagship Metropolitan Lager ~ 5.6% ABV ~ 27 IBU
Flagship Brewery’s “Metropolitan Lager” features toasted Vienna and Rye malt. Full bodied with smooth flavor and texture in part from the Rye, floral noble hops are added in abundance for aroma and flavor. This Lager is smooth, clean, crisp and exceptionally balanced.
