Black Mesa – Cave Dweller
Ballast Point – California Amber
Dead Armadillo Brewing – Amber
Bitter Sisters – Knockout Irish Red
Hanson Bros. Beer – Redland Amber Ale

Small Batch word: Malts – At times these beers contain Vienna/Munich, caramel or crystal malts. Malts are milled and used for their sugars to help create the wort.
