The ExperiMentals

The ExperiMentals, as the name indicates, are beers concocted in the spirit of science and discovery – or maybe just some hair-brained idea we couldn’t resist. Brewed in batches of 10 barrels or less, these beers rarely make it beyond Preamble Taproom they sell so quickly. Open to all styles of beer, this is our most diverse series with even more barrel aged and sours, even pilot beers from our yeast laboratory!

Ripple, Belgian Table Ale
Passionately Confused, Passionfruit Belgian Golden Strong
Coloha – Hawaiin Lager
Mandel Marzen – Almond Marzen Lager

It is dangerously drinkable!
