Alternating Current Altbier is back!

alt

Fall is right around the corner, its time to bring back our old favorite, Alternating Current Altbier!  Deliveries going out this week to stores and bars throughout the Triangle and Triad.

Amidst the rise of aggressively hopped West Coast IPAs, Gizmo Brew Works offers an alternative for the sensitive palate. With Alternating Current Altbier, we swing the pendulum in the opposite direction of the big hoppy beers by focusing on the malt and yeast. Brewed true to the German style using Dusseldorf alt yeast, German hops, and a standard altbier grain profile, Alternating Current showcases the smooth sweetness of the Munich malt against a clean finish.

Introducing Gizmo’s Wet Hop Pale Ale

logo_wet_hop_2015This Friday we are releasing our first annual wet hopped beer! Brewed using freshly picked hops from our own hop field. Get it while it lasts!

This Spring we found ourselves with free time between batches. Armed with a shovel and a dream of growing our own hops, we dug with enthusiasm. With the trellis up, rhizomes planted and a green thumbs up from our local farmer/mentor, we looked over our field with pride. Gizmo Farm Works was born as the bines leapt out of the ground within weeks. By late July they were towering. With the goal of using the hops as fresh as possible, we cut them from the vine as we brewed. Though our intentions were pure, our idea of how long it would take to trim all these cones was flawed. We feverously trimmed cone after cone, stopping only to run and weigh how much we had picked before adding it to the kettle. It was the equivalent of throwing all your ingredients from pantry into a dish, then writing the recipe as it bakes. It was chaos. It was exhausting. It was perfectly imperfect.
Now that you know how it all started, here’s how it ends:
“Some kind of NC grown Wet Hop Pale Ale. This beer was hopped start to finish with fresh cut hops to achieve an unknown IBU. Whatever this brew you are holding in your and is, know it was crafted with hard work, experimentation, love, and the best intentions.”
See you Harvest 2016,
Joe Walton
Head Brewer

Coffee Stiletto Stout

Coffee Stiletto
Our Black Stiletto is wide awake after a double shot of Ethiopian coffee from our friends over at Benelux. Slow roasted beans, added directly to the beer, impart a distinct flavor of espresso with hints of blackberry and chocolate. It’s a winning combination that will perk you up, even on the coldest of winter nights.

ABV: 6.8%
Availability: Brewer’s Whim

Barrel Wasp IPA


A storm left their nest uninhabitable. Luckily for the wasp, they found shelter in bourbon barrels. Luckily for them, their makers hit the mark. Released on August 6th, 2015 in honor of International IPA Day, only 100 bottles were made available…and your holding one them. Lucky you.

ABV: 6.1%
Availability: Brewer’s Whim

CLOSE
Black Hop Down Black IPA


West coast hops make a covert entry into our new winter seasonal. Disguised in a dark cloak of Midnight Wheat, this India Black Ale packs 71 IBUs. Centennial, Columbus, Chinook, Comet, and Amarillo stealthily assume their position on the field of battle. Survival is unlikely… escaping this darkness is impossible.

ABV: 7.0%
IBU: 71
Availability: Brewer’s Whim

CLOSE
Golden Ale-ement


The question of the perfect light craft ale is, forgive us, ale-ementary. If you desire something that is light in both body and color, look no further than Gizmo Brew Works’ Golden Ale-ement. Our golden ale balances a subtle lemon flavor with the crispness of a lager. Hoppy but not bitter, flavorful yet easy drinking, Golden Ale-ement sets the standard for quality.

ABV: 4.6%
IBU: 14
Availability: Brewer’s Whim

Aztec Gold Imperial Chocolate Stout

Aztec Gold
The first people to make chocolate were the ancient tribes of Mexico and Central America, including the Incas, Aztec and Mayans. They mixed ground cacao seeds with various seasonings to make a spicy, frothy drink which they called chocolatl. The Aztecs valued their drink so much that cocoa was used as a currency worth more than gold.
 
We celebrate this invention with our Aztec Gold Imperial Chocolate Stout. We brewed it with cocoa nibs grown in Belize and roasted by Raleigh’s own Videri Chocolate Factory. The addition of vanilla beans makes this beer a well balanced treat.
 
ABV: 9.2%
Availability: Limited – November

CLOSE
Trebuchet Barleywine

Trebuchet Barleywine
It is said that the French army introduced this medieval weapon in the 12th century. Others claim that the trebuchet was a Chinese creation made around 300 B.C. Whichever is true, there is little controversy that the trebuchet ruled supreme against the strongest fortress.
 
Gizmo’s Trebuchet Barleywine smells sweetly of cherries and berries, this big fruity brew checks in at 9.3% ABV. Balanced with English hops, crystal malts lend a slight roasted flavor within the malty goodness to help cut the sweetness.
 
ABV: 9.3%
Availability: Limited – January

CLOSE
Tripel Digits Belgian Tripel

Tripel DigitsIn the early 1700’s the ability to recognize the difference between hot and cold was nothing new. The ability to quantify temperatures however was impossible until Daniel Fahrenheit forever changed modern science. Sure, beer was brewed, but with little knowledge of just how much temperature affected the desired outcome. The mercury thermometer and subsequent Fahrenheit scale are just a few of the weapons he added to the brewers’ arsenal.
 
This Belgian Tripel can stand the heat. Aromas of flowers and fruits temper the classic Belgian nose. Clove and pepper notes ignite the tongue, giving way to a crisp and refreshing finish, even when it’s 100+ degrees outside. This summer, we offer a toast to triple digit temperatures and our ability to recognize them.
 
ABV: 8.7%
Availability: Limited – July

CLOSE
Trojan Horse Imperial IPA

Trojan Horse
After ten years of war, the silence is deafening. The impregnable fortress of Troy has left the mighty Greeks no choice but to abandon their campaign. As the white sails disappear into the Aegean sea, all that remains on the
beach is a parting gift from their defeated enemies. It takes 500 men to pull the prize through the gates into the city’s heart; the spoils of war…the most bitter of mistakes.
 
The Trojan Horse was a brilliant, deceptive and cunning subterfuge that changed the course of history. Like the ruthless assassins hiding in plain sight outside the gates, this Imperial IPA is destined to pillage with a hop flavor and aroma. Rye malt from a local farm fuels their vengeance. This brew is a tribute to the inventors of thinking outside the box, even when it’s ironic. Look this gift horse in the mouth, Trojan…we dare you.
 
ABV: 9.7%
Availability: Limited – June

Enigma Weizenboch

Hoppy Grounds
An enigma is a person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand. In the Second World War, German inventors supplied their military with the Enigma cipher machines for encrypting and decrypting messages. Fortunately for the Allies inventors at Bletchley Park in England invented the worlds first programmable digital electronic computer to break the code.
 
A puzzling twist on common wheat beers, the Weizenbock style is a more powerful Dunkle Weizen brewed at a Bock strength. True to the German style, Gizmo’s Enigma Weizenbock melds banana and clove flavors with a sweet yet dry finish.
 
ABV: 7.9%
Availability: Limited – March

CLOSE
Hoppy Grounds Coffee Pale Ale

Hoppy Grounds
 Hoppy Grounds Pale Ale is an English-style pale ale that combines cold press Ethiopian coffee from our friends at Benelux Coffee with the earthy spiciness of English hops. With a surprising peppery spice and subtle coffee flavor, medium bodied and complex, this unique pale ale is sure to wake up any palate.
 
ABV: 5.7%
IBU: 35
Availability: Spring

Black Stiletto Stout

Black Stiletto Stout
A sexy, silky stout adds panache to any social situation, so we brewed Black Stiletto Stout with an eye toward style. Its creamy head smells sweetly of roasted barley and caramel before giving way to the full bodied blend of dark chocolate, toffee, and bready English ale yeast. Our choice ingredients create a rich and harmonious flavor profile that slides down the throat with a velvety mouthfeel. Robust but not filling, our Black Stiletto Stout will make you do a double take.
 
ABV: 6.1%
Availability: Year Round

Brewed with wildflower honey, Gizmo’s honey wheat beer is a nod to the beekeeping profession. Due to popular demand, this once summer favorite is now available year round.
 
ABV: 5.5%
