    We looked to Belgium to provide the inspiration for a beer to celebrate our fourth anniversary. This refreshing yet elegant wheat-based ale offers a pleasant sweetness with a dry finish…far drier than most! Our pairing of Comet and Citra hops yield bright notes of melon and grapefruit zest complimented with just a hint of coriander. We might be tooting our own horn by saying, "happy birthday to us," but this present is for you!

    The official beer of the National Cherry Blossom Festival! Old Ox and NCBF chose a rustic farmhouse ale as a representation of the season. Originally brewed as a thirst quenching beverage for farmers planting crops, today the farmhouse ale is a sign that spring has arrived. The saison yeast adds herbal and spice notes that are a perfect complement to the sweetness of the ripe cherry that is added to this brew during fermentation. The bubbly effervescence, pink hue, silky mouthfeel and dry finish welcome spring to the Nation’s Capital.

    Have yourself a Bier. Inhale the rich malt character. Draw your first taste through the snowy white head. Pause to enjoy the creamy mouthfeel. Finish with a mellow sigh. Our Bier is a marvelously balanced malt forward ale with just the right amount of hop character. What more is there to say except “Give me a Bier!”

    Our interpretation of a West Coast style IPA! Very hop forward and deliciously unbalanced. Pine and citrus notes ride the wave of Centennial, Amarillo and Citra hops culminating in a delightfully dry finish.

    A robust rye porter with hints of coffee and chocolate nicely balanced with a subtle hop influence. A substantial, malty ale, complex and flavorful with a medium body and a slightly roasty finish. The rich dark color is deceptively refreshing.
