Back on the menu and in cans. Final Rites Rye is a 6.9% ABV malt forward ale with just enough hoppiness to keep things well balanced. It’s thick, spicy and earthy, but retains a clean snappy finish.
A specter is haunting the Bay Area- the specter of Nelson. Ghost of Nelson IPA has manifested itself at Ghost Town once again. This heavily dry hopped all Nelson Sauvin West Coast IPA reeks of gooseberries and white grapes. It’s 70 IBUs and a very dry 7.2% ABV, but the Nelson hops lend a fruity perceived sweetness that will haunt your palate. Ghost of Nelson is also available in cans for the first time, so you can bring the spirit with you. 👻 #ghostofnelson #ghosttownbrewing #oaklandmade #oaklandbeer #craftbeer #independentbeer #deathtofalsecraftbeer #eastbaybeer #californiabeer #instabeer
Impale Ale is ready to stake it’s claim! Impale is a new unfiltered West Coast Pale Ale featuring Mosaic and Belma hops. It isn’t exactly subtle, but that doesn’t mean it’s without complexity. Impale is a balanced 5.5% ABV, 32 IBUs and dripping with crisp refreshing notes of pineapples, strawberries and mangoes. Come see why Impale is head and shoulders above the rest- and be sure to tip your bartender ⚔️🍻
Maldoror Saison is back, and itching to eviscerate the vain pretenses of our civilization. Maldoror is named after literature’s strangest misanthrope, and features an spicy, earthy profile of black pepper and clove. Maldoror Saison is a complex and well balanced 6% ABV glass of liquid vitriol. ⚰️⚰️⚰️ #maldoror #ghosttownbrewing #oaklandmade #oaklandbeer #craftbeer #independentbeer #deathtofalsecraftbeer #eastbaybeer #californiabeer #instabeer
Cortège IPA is here to keep the dirge alive. This juicy IPA is soft, clean and surging with bright mango, citrus & tropical notes that are to die for. Cortège features 50 IBUs of Azacca and Mosaic hops that are perfectly balanced with the 6.8% ABV. Follow Cortège to your happy place.
