DuClaw Brewing Company started as a brewpub in Bel Air, MD and now is a large regional brewery located on the outskirts of Baltimore. They have grown, along with the rest of the craft beer movement, over the last twenty years, while retaining the “cool” factor that helped to set them apart in the beginning. Come out and try one of the standards of the local beer scene!

The Beers:

  • Funk Blueberry Citrus Wheat: “The traditional American Wheat Ale serves as a solid baseline, but we couldn’t be content until we tore the roof off this sucker! Funk, our Blueberry Citrus Wheat Ale, sets the rhythm with a soulful fusion of American wheat and hops, before unleashing a stunning encore with big notes of blueberry and Meyer lemon. It’s no jive, you’ll just dig it!” 5% ABV, 16 IBU
  • Farmhouse Gypsy: “Our continuing experiments with our flagship IPA, Neon Gypsy, lead to this unlikely combination of IPA grain and hop bills fermented with Saison yeast. The resulting beer is medium-bodied and pale amber in color with a crisp mouthfeel, and moderately strong 7.3% ABV. Grapefruit, citrus, and pine combine with the dusty, peppery character of Saison yeast for a hybrid that is truly the best of both brews.” 55 IBU
  • Blood Orange Neon Gypsy: “The first foray into our Hop Continuum Series, our flagship IPA, Neon Gypsy, infused with blood orange juice, proved so popular that it transcended the series to stand on its own as a worthy companion to the original Neon Gypsy. Notes of grapefruit, citrus, and pine from a blend of seven hops balances the tart sweetness of blood orange juice in a flavor profile that roams your palate long after the beer’s bittersweet finish.” 6.5% ABV, 55 IBU
  • Sweet Baby Jesus: “First brewed in 2011, this GABF bronze medal winning Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter is jet black in color with a tan, rocky head, full body, and creamy, luxurious mouthfeel. Its lightly sweet, malty flavor is accented by rich flavors of chocolate, coffee, and peanut butter, balanced by a subtle hop character and a moderate 6.2% ABV. Sweet Baby Jesus finishes smooth, dry, and roasty with lingering notes of chocolate and peanut butter so savory, you will exclaim its name!” 6.2% ABV, 33 IBU
