In Belgium, strong golden ales are traditionally named after forces of evil. So,we thought it only fitting for this beer to share initials with the meanest little guy in the Catawba Family…the infamous LD, a.k.a. Long Dawg, a.k.a. Little Devil. Like LD himself, our abbey-style Tripel is innocently pale in color, deceptively light in body, and irresistibly “complex.” But don’t be fooled by appearances, lest you suffer the wrath of this tiny terror!
This Belgian-style ale uses roughly three times the malt of a standard “Single,” with an addition of Belgian candi sugar. Fermented with abbey ale yeast, LD’s is bursting with fruity yeast esters and spicy phenols – and a hint of warming alcohol. Flavor descriptors include apple, pear, lemon, banana, clove, peppery spice, and noble hop earthiness.

Following in the tracks of our famous PB&J comes the second release in this Specialty Series. Taking inspiration from our popular chocolate & beer pairing on the Asheville South Slope, we’ve incorporated the edible art of our local boutique chocolate factory into a beer! Brewed with Chocolate Malts and Midnight Wheat, it was conditioned on locally-sourced cacao nibs, whole roasted North Carolina peanuts, and Madagascar vanilla beans.
This silky smooth stout is a decadent liquid dessert – like a peanut butter cup in a glass. Try it paired with a banana split and vanilla bean ice cream!

Peanut Butter Jelly Time®
Remember when your mom packed a PB&J sandwich in your lunchbox? The flavors all melded into pure comfort food by noon! Well, we recreated this childhood goodness in a beer! This light brown ale is brewed from five different grains and then aged for weeks on raspberries and roasted peanuts. Take a sip, let the flavors mingle on your palate, and enjoy our PB&J in a glass.
This beer begins life as a light brown ale that provides the bready qualities of the base beer. After fermentation, it is rested on whole roasted peanuts and all-natural raspberry puree, which truly transforms this into a PB&J sandwich in a glass.
