Double IPA, 10% ABV
Like we said, Beerworks put out a lot of amazing brews. Heavy Machinery is a seasonal IPA that's released in six different styles (Half, Belgian, Wet Hop, Black, Double, and English), and they're all delicious. The spring-released Double IPA, for example, delivers a bursting hop profile thanks to the Magnum, Warrior, Simcoe, and Citra varietals. Each barrel is packed with 6lb of hops, and it comes through with a nose of hop resin, but a semisweet malty flavor.
Porter, 6.6% ABV
This co-op owned brewpub makes good food, and even better beer. Its Recalcitrant Dockhand just scored a gold at the 2015 GABF and rightly so -- the robust porter is light on the mouth, but full of flavor with notes of coffee and dark chocolate. It is not overly sweet, has a very clean finish, and hits the tongue nicely at anytime of the year.
