German Style

Rescue Ale

Rescue Ale is a Northern German kolsch style beer. In Germany, it is produced in the Koln area in the Rhine River Valley. As with all Sisikyou Brew works creations, the ingredients come from the country of origin for each particular beer. Hence, our kolsch ingredients all come from the Rhine Valley, within 20 miles of Koln itself. The base malt is the finest Koln style pilsner, light in color, sweet in flavor. 

As is traditional, Rescue Ale is moderately hopped with an IBU rating of 35. 3 hops including Magnum, Hullertau, and Saaz, all German grown, are used. The alcohol content is 5%, stronger than a traditional kolsch by about a half percent. The yeast is top fermenting German ale yeast, and fermentation is controlled by the 60 degree temperature setting. All of that ends up creating a drink that is very light in color, malty, easy-drinking, and unique in profile and flavor.

Alcohol: 5  IBU: 35

Snowman's Ale

Before the invention of refrigeration in the 1850's, only Bavaria brewed with cold, bottom fermenting lager yeasts. Everyone else used warmer working ale yeasts. With refrigeration, lager beers became the choice in all Germany, except in the north, where the old (alt) style ales are still made.

Siskiyou Brew Works attempts to replicate this beer with our own Altbier. All ingredients come from Germany for an authentic taste experience. 

The grain bill is much like that used in Lager's Slaaber, a combination of German manufactured Munich, German 2 Row, Vienna and Carahell malts are used. Hop additions include Magnum, Tettnang and Saaz hops. The yeast is top fermenting German ale requiring 2 weeks in the fermenter before being kegged and stored for at least that long at temperatures around 55 degrees. The name comes from the Snowman's Hill sledding area located off Hwy 89 at Snowman's Summit.

ABV: 5%  IBU 32.9

Lager's Slaaber

Before the invention of refrigeration in the 1850's, only Bavaria brewed with cold, bottom fermenting lager yeasts. They were able to lager (store) the beer in caves at relatively low temperatures. For the reason, Bavaria is recognized as the lager capital of the world. 

Siskiyou Brew Works attempts to replicate this beer with our own lager. Like all SBW beers, it is brewed with ingredients that come from it's country of origin, in this case all German ingredients for an authentic taste experience. The grain bill is a combination of German manufactured Munich, German 2 Row, Vienna and Carahell malts. These grains are mashed for 90 minutes. The resulting wort is boiled for like amount of time, during which Magnum, Tettnang and Hallertauer hops are inserted. The yeast is bottom fermenting German lager yeast and it requires 1 month in the fermenter at 55 degrees before being kegged and stored for another month at temperatures around freezing.

All of that adds up to the creation of a full bodied, dark smooth and wonderful tasting lager beer. Prost!

ABV: 6.6%  IBU 26.2

Belgian Style

Red Cloud Ale

Red Cloud Ale is a Belgian Abbey Rouge style beer. Like other Siskiyou Brew Works creations, the ingredients come from the country of the beer's origin. Hence, our Porter ingredients all come from Belgium.

The base malt is Pilsner, light reddish in color and tangy in taste. The red tint is the result of generous additions of sweet taste. The red tint is the result of generous additions of sweet Belgian grown Abbey malt. Biscuit malt rounds out the grain bill. Liquid Belgian brewer's sugar is added to the boil. This sugar comes from beets rather than cane. 

Red Cloud Ale is lightly hopped. Only 2 hops, Slovenian Goldings & Saaz, both Belgian grown, are used. 

The yeast is a top fermenting (as are all ales). Abbey Ale yeast and fermentation speed is controlled by the 65 degree temperature setting.

All of that ends up creating a drink that is malty and slightly sweet flavored, easy drinking and unique in profile and flavor. The name comes from the original Mother McCloud Company owned house of ill repute, located in the general area of where the horse club is now. The place was also called "Out to Patsy's," in honor of the long time madam of the Red Cloud House.

Alcohol: 5%  IBU: 26

English Style

Mt. Eddy's Gold

Mt. Eddy's Gold is an English style pale ale. As with all Siskiyou Brew works creations, the ingredients come from the country of origin for each particular beer. The base malt is Marris Otter 2 row pale ale, the finest pale ale malt in the world. Crystal malt is also included in the grain bill. This brew is not hoppy like west coast style pale ales. Original British pales are made with British hops rather than Oregon Cascade type hops. The Target, Kent Goldings and Fuggles hops used in Mt. Eddy's Gold are totally different than their Oregon counterparts and create a much smoother drinking experience. The yeast is top fermenting (as are all ales) English Ale yeast and fermentation speed is controlled by the 65 degree temperature setting. The final product is golden in color with lighter gravity and mouthfeel and a mild bitterness with a slightly malty finish from the crystal malt. 

The name comes from 9026' Mt. Eddy the largest mountain along the beautiful Trinity Divide and the headwaters of both the Sacramento and the Trinity Rivers.

 

Alcohol: 5.2%  IBU:  39

Trinity Divide

Trinity Divide is an English style India Pale Ale. Like other Siskiyou Brew Works creations, the ingredients come from the country of the beer's origin. The base malt is plenty of Marris Otter 2 row pale ale. Crystal and toasted malts are also included in the large grain bill. This brew is not hoppy like west coast style IPAs. original British IPAs were made with British hops rather than Oregon Cascade type hops. The Target, Kent Goldings, and Fuggles hops used in Trinity Divide are totally different than their Oregon counterparts and create a much smoother drinking experience. The yeast is top fermenting (as are all ales)  English Ale yeast and fermentation speed is controlled by the 65 degree temperature setting. The final product is deep golden- red in color with plenty of gravity mouthfeel and a mild bitterness with a malty finish from the crystal malt. 

The name comes from the divide that separates the Trinity and Sacramento Rivers.

Alcohol: 6.6%  IBU: 62

Tiki's Shadow

Tiki's Shadow is a British style 'Taddy' Porter beer. Like other Siskiyou Brew Works creations, the ingredients come from the country of the beers origin. Hence, our Porter ingredients all come from England. 

The base malt is the finest British Marris Otter 2 row. The carmel flavor is provided by Crystal Malt, while Chocolate and Patent malts create the deep dark color and the chocolate and coffee undertones.

As is traditional, Tiki's Shadow is lightly hopped with an IBU rating of 30. 3 hops, including Target, East Kent Goldings and Fuggles which are all English grown, are used. The alcohol percent is 6.1%. Hence the term 'Taddy.' The yeast is top fermenting English Ale and fermentation is controlled by the 65 degree temperature setting. All of that ends up creating a drink that is very dark, malty and slightly sweet flavored. It is easy drinking yet full bodied and unique in profile and flavor. 

The name comes from Tiki, our mellow, 19 year-old dog who passed away the month we opened. He was assistant brewer on hundreds of batches of beer over the years and owns a place in all of our hearts.

Alcohol: 5%  IBU: 26

Hybrid Beers

Mother McCloud Ale

Mother McCloud Ale is a hybrid style ale. Unlike other Siskiyou Brew Works creations, the ingrediants come from different parts of the globe. The 2 row pale ale base malt and the Vienna malts are German.

This brew is hoppier than our other offerings, as the hops are highlighted rather than the malt. The Cluster Hops are Czech. In Fall, we feature this beer with our own estate grown hope. The yeast is top fermenting (as are all ales) Belgian yeast and fermentation speed is controlled by the 65 degree temperature setting. 

The final product is golden in color with an emphasis on the hops but with still enough malt to remind you that you are drinking beer.

The name comes from the original Mother McCloud Lumber Company and in honor of the local hops that were brought here by the Italian workers who provided the beer and wine during prohibition. The feral offspring of these very hops still exist in McCloud today and bring a sense of history to our humble brewery. SBW will feature estate grown hops for this beer during season.

Alcohol: 5.5%  IBU: 28.9

Intake Springs Ale

Dull gold colored with medium gravity. Bohemian Pilsner malt with Belgian brewers sugar and Alaskan birch syrup combine with German and Syrian hops and continental yeast to create a refreshingly different taste.

Alcohol: 5.5%  IBU: 28.9
