We took our popular Midnight Rider and added a hefty dose of rye malt for a nice, spicy compliment to the toffee/chocolate flavors achieved from caramel and roasted malts. Then we threw a curve ball by adding milk sugar (lactose) to the kettle. Milk sugar is unfermentable sugar that lends a soft sweetness to the beer without being cloyingly sweet. The mix of spicy rye and sweet lactose is a harmonious union!

Our homage to Prince! This Belgian saison is bone dry with traditional notes of fruity esters and slightly spicy phenols produced by the yeast. 100% natural cranberry juice was added post fermentation to give the beer a beautiful rose color and big cranberry flavor. We opted for tart cranberries rather than sweet cranberries to support the traditional Belgian saison base beer. This is what it tastes like, When Doves Cry!
5.5% ABV • 13 IBU
Brewed in the traditional style with 50% malted wheat and German noble hops. This beer showcases clove-like phenols and slight banana esters. The traditional hops support the grain bill with very low bitterness and herbal/earthy flavor & aroma. Considered by many connoisseurs to be the original “session” beer, the lower ABV allows you to have a few of these refreshing German wheat beers without going on a blitzkrieg. Prost!

One of our most popular styles. White Rabbit is a Belgian style beer that is smooth and refreshing. Its hazy appearance comes from a heavy dose of wheat malt and flaked oats. Orange peel, lemon peel, coriander and chamomile are added after whirlpool to enhance that classic flavor profile derived from high quality Belgian Wit yeast. White Rabbit is moderately sweet, slightly spicy and always refreshing. Go ask Alice, I think she’ll know! Served with (or without) an orange slice.
Heart of Gold
4.5% ABV • 22 IBU
Heart of Gold features a crisp malt backbone that is not overwhelming. The Jarrylo, Huell Melon & Mandarina Bavaria hops keep things aromatic and interesting. Expect hop flavors of light citrus. This beer is an easy-sipper with enough character to please your palate.
East Coast IPA
6.8% ABV • 45 IBU
Our version of this style features a restrained malt bill consisting of Golden Promise and a bunch of flaked oats/wheat. Copious amounts of kettle hops were used at flameout for flavor and aroma. But it’s the double dry-hopping that makes this beer shine. We used over 5 pounds per barrel of Citra and Mosaic lupulin powder in this bad boy. The final dry-hopping was recirculated for 3 hours to make sure that those hop polyphenols were infused into the beer. This is the juicy pill you need for your horrible hop-thirst disease!
6.6% ABV • 34 IBU

Slight undertones of toasted malt on the nose are offset with fresh citrus hop aromas. A touch of crystal malt lends a subtle sweetness that is quickly overtaken by the juicy and oh so subtle bitterness of grapefruit and orange hop flavors. Dry hopping provides a boost of juicy citrus aromas. Porch Song Pale Ale is laid back, much like our approach to craft beer here at Piedmont Brewery & Kitchen.
