Agent O - American Pale Ale - 6% - This beer predates Tox Brewing altogether. While an all Citra Pale Ale is not an original concept in 2018, Jon first brewed this over five years ago on his back porch and called it Orange Cap... because he only had orange bottle caps at the time he went to bottle it. This beer achieves all of it's IBUs from late boil additions of Citra, and is then heavily whirlpooled and dry-hopped with Citra for maximum Citra hop flavor optimization.
Angel Wings – American IPA – 6.8% ABV – Our American IPA and one of the first ever Tox originals. It is the culmination of our always inspired and never satisfied urge to make a hop forward IPA that meets our standards. The result is a full bodied treat that is double dry hopped and brilliant orange in color. Angel Wings takes flight on wings of citrus, peach, passion fruit, and subtle grapefruit flavors with a strong burst of citrus aroma, all wrapped in a delicate halo of bitterness.
Angel’s Trumpet – Double IPA – 8.5% ABV – This is a scaled up and extremely hop saturated version of our beloved Angel Wings. It starts with more of the same hop selection added during the kettle and fermentation to exude heavy citrus and tropical fruit flavors. We notice bursting aromas of citrus, lemon, tropical fruit, a touch of biscuit followed by flavors of citrus, peach, passion fruit, and subtle Grapefruit. We dare you to put down your glass once this deceivingly high ABV treat coats your palate with enslaving hop oils.
Black Widow – Imperial Stout – 9.5% ABV – Our strong stout chock-full of roasted barley, special dark malts, and crystal malts. This is all rounded off with a pleasant bite of bitterness and fermented with American Ale Yeast. Dangerously drinkable, this thick stout is loaded with notes of cocoa, nuts, and dark roasted coffee.
Dart Frog – IPA – 7.2% ABV – A big IPA named after a small animal. Dart Frog has a simple malt bill, house yeast and water, and some of our favorite hops from Australia. We hope it gives you the pleasant bitterness and flavors of passion fruit, pineapple, pine, and berries that we experience.
Detox – Pilsner – 5% ABV – There is nothing more pure and less forgiving than one of our personal favorite styles, a German style Pilsner. Our version is dry and crisp on the malt profile and hopped with Huell Melon and Mandarina Bavaria. We also sneak in a touch of dry hops to enhance the floral flavors. It's another perfect beer for those afternoons when you need to pace yourself, but still want a flavorful treat.
Devil’s Trumpet – Double IPA – 8.5% ABV – Devil's Trumpet is the the evil twin of Angel's Trumpet. We started with the same base recipe and specifically chosen hops to exude flavors of citrus, floral, and pine. We taste heavy notes of evergreen, pine, wild flower, Citrus fruit, peach, and grapefruit.
Double Agent O - Imperial IPA - 9% - There isn't much description needed here. We scaled up Agent O into a shameless Juice Bomb. This is our all Citra Imperial IPA that features all late-boil and whirlpool hop additions, with a heavy dry hopping to follow... all with Citra. Be careful, this smooth and juicy 9% will sneak up on you like a Double O Agent.
Nerium – Pale Ale – 5.8% ABV - Nerium is a hop forward Pale Ale that we characterize as having the flavor of "Dankberries". It starts with an extremely simple malt bill and ale yeast lets the American and Australian hop flavors shine. Enjoy the hazy appearance and hop aromas as flavors of pine, berries, and subtle tropical fruit are soon to follow.
Nightshade – Coffee Milk Stout – 7% ABV – Packed with over 1.5 gallons of concentrated cold brewed coffee per barrel, this milk stout uses less roasted malts and milk sugar to let the sweetness and rich, bold flavors come through. We want it to be approachable but pleasantly sweet so we thickened it up to a texture that screams dessert... with a cold-brew punch! Each batch experiments with a different blend of locally roasted, single origin coffee that is cold brewed, concentrated, and added just before packaging.
Placebo Effect – Cream Ale – 5.2% ABV – We love our fancy craft beer like family, but sometimes even we just want to enjoy some yellow fizzy stuff. This is our signature cream ale made with the simplest grains and corn (yes, corn). Meeting the style guidelines of one of two beer styles that was truly invented in America, this cream ale holds a place in our hearts as the most drinkable beer we've been able to concoct. It's great for a day of mowing your lawn, a round of flip cup, or kicking back on game day.
Pollen – Pale Ale – 5.6% ABV - Pollen is our rotating hop Pale Ale series. Pollen uses a consistent very simple grain selection and ale yeast paired with a rotating selection of hops. The idea here is to highlight the subtleties of a single hop strain by pairing a clean grain bill with some of our favorite hops... or hops we wish to learn more about. The result is a beer with a crisp golden color and a pillowy mouth feel, each version being unique in its own way.
***This is an evolving list as we continue experimenting and pushing our limits to provide new offerings***
Belladonna - Chocolate Coconut Stout - 6.5% ABV - Belladonna has quickly become one of our new favorites here at Tox. We take the thickest stout we know how to make and cram it full of freshly toasted coconut and over 1.5 pounds of cacao nibs per barrel. Let it warm in your glass as flavors of chocolate fudge evolve into buttery coconut.
Black Mamba - Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout - 11%+ ABV - To put it simply, this beer is stout meets barrel. It was first brewed by Mike in his garage and aged in a five gallon bourbon barrel given as a wedding gift from Dayne and Jon. It starts with a scaled up version of our thick imperial stout that rests peacefully in bourbon barrels for a year or more. We are hoping to do this once a year and let the execution evolve as we evolve as brewers.
Copperhead – American Amber – 6.6% ABV – This is our dry-hopped American Amber Ale. We use crystal malts and a hint of roasted barley to achieve the traditional "Irish Red" coloring and malt characteristic. It is topped off with a touch of rye and a special hop blend to exhibit flavors of spicy pine and citrus. We hope this beer provides a swift and spicy bite like the snake we named it after, but also a balanced flavorful finish that comes in soft and peaceful, much like a walk through the Connecticut forest it occupies.
Cukelear Fallout - 5.3% ABV - Cucumbers make everything cooler, and we brew this gem with plenty of them. We hope you'll find this summer offering as crisp and rejuvenating as a day at the spa.
Ermahgourd - 6.1% ABV - Gourd Almighty! We chunk up nearly 50 locally grown squashes per batch to bring you this All-American Autumn offering. Orange in color with a subtle cinnamon and nutmeg aroma, this beer represents Autumn in a glass.
Holly - Winter Spiced Ale - Way back when Jon was still mentoring us on a 5-gallon homebrew setup, he was already making this once a year winter spiced ale that is never the same. Depending on how he feels that day, week, month, or year will heavily influence this holiday treat... Sometimes he even lets us collaborate with him! We have seen him use Vanilla, Cinnamon, spices, herbs, and who knows what else. We are happy to have him bring it to you every holiday season.
Man o’ War - Flavored Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout - 11%+ ABV - We also have dreams to release this once a year, a little differently each time. It starts with the biggest and best stout we know how to make that is aged in bourbon barrels on different flavors depending on what inspires us that year. Let it warm in your glass while you experience the evolving flavors of whatever we aged it on this year.
Pharm Party - Rotating Experimental Series - This beer is never to be brewed the same twice! Pharm Party is our research and development series where we experiment with every variable possible in pursuit of our next great thing... or when we just have some leftover ingredients we need to use up.
Toxtoberfest - Festbier - 6.2% ABV - This is our take on a Festbier that features the finest German malts and hops. We went a little maltier than a modern German Festbier, but not quite as heavy as your typical American Oktoberfest. The result is a full-bodied but sessionable beer perfect for football-viewing needs and keeping lookout for Trick-or-Treaters.
Wisteria – Coffee Maple Stout – 8.0% ABV – Say hello to breakfast! We push thickness to the limits on this one. It was first made with Jon's home-roasted coffee and Mike's own homemade, dark amber maple syrup from trees around his neighborhood. With our new brewhouse we will carefully select and source local syrup that meets our standards and add hand selected, concentrated cold-brewed coffee.
***We have so many ideas and plans to grow this list as we become fully operational***
