    We brewed this American Style Espresso Stout in collaboration with our local coffee roaster, Cape Foulweather Coffee Co. and Pacific Grind Cafe.  With three pounds of ground roasted beans in the mash and three and a half gallons of espresso added post fermentation, expect huge coffee flavors and a caffeine boost from this big body stout.

    This hybrid ale is not your Mama’s amber ale. Fender Bender has notes of chocolate barley and an assertive hop character. With a hard rockin’ 6.2% ABV, Fender Bender can enliven any taste buds seeking good brews, good tunes, and good times.

  • Low Rider Lager

    5.5% ABV • 15 IBU

    Take a tasty trip to the sun drenched Baja and beyond with Rusty Truck Brewing Company’s Low Rider Lager.  Styled after classic Mexican pilsners like Modelo and Pacifico, Low Rider is light, crisp and muy refrescante. ¡Salude!

  • Lupulin IPA

    7% ABV • 74 IBU

    The flavor, aroma and bitterness in hops comes from small sticky globs of essential oils and resins (lupulin) produced by lupulin glands that are cradled under the protective leaves of the hop cone (bracteoles). The bracteoles contain tannins and polyphenols which add additional flavors to the beer. Using revolutionary technology called “LupuLN2” the lupulins are freeze dried with liquid CO2, allowing extraction of these essential oils and resins while leaving the tannins and polyphenols behind. Using the LupuLN2 (without tannins or polyphenols) in an IPA, results in a clean crisp, dry malt profile with big passionfruit and citrus flavors. We added a hint of pine from a late kettle addition of simcoe hops and – damn – this stuff is good.

  • Moonlight Ride Blackberry Ale

    5.3% ABV • 20 IBU

    The aroma of ripened Oregon blackberries on a crisp moonlit September night is what inspired our blackberry ale.  We think we got it just right. Aged on 126 pounds of pureed blackberries per 10 barrel batch.  Subtle hints of blackberry, Enjoy the Ride!

     

  • Moonshadow Blood Orange Black Lager

    5.7% ABV • 23 IBU

    Moonshadow Blood Orange Black Lager

  • Pedal to the Metal Double IPA (seasonal)

    8.7% ABV • 100 IBU

    This beer is brewed with nearly 3.5# of hops per barrel! It has a deep copper color, and huge Cascade hop aroma. The hop flavor is dominated by citrus and piney notes. The finish is a touch of malt, followed by a big, clean hop bitterness. Lean back and hang on! It’s Pedal to the Metal time!  Seasonal – watch for availability.

  • Road Wrecker IPA

    7% ABV • 70 IBU

    Proceed with caution: Road Wrecker is a giant of an ale, with major bitter and aromatic hops, topping out in the vicinity of 7% ABV. A coppery malt body and plentiful hop character for a classic Pacific Northwest style IPA to satisfy the Hopmonger in all of us. Seatbelts recommended!

  • Stupiphany Imperial Red Ale (seasonal)

    8% ABV • 90 IBU

    Stupiphany: noun “a sudden, inspired and profound realization that you did something stupid.”  What better way to numb those “priceless” moments in our life, or better yet, make light of them, than to enjoy a pint of our 8.0% ABV Stupiphany Imperial Red Ale.  Not a cure, but the best treatment available under the circumstances, Stupiphany is massively malty, and hopped over the top with the Northwest’s finest.  Stupid? Who cares—here’s a toast to the next time!  Seasonal – watch for availability of our traditional red as well as our oak aged red.

     

  • Taft Toffee Porter

    5% ABV • 20 IBU

    Named for the Rusty Truck’s home in the Historic Taft District, Taft Toffee Porter is a dark and velvety ale with significant toffee and chocolate notes. Slightly lighter in color than mass produced porters, our version is a tasty twist on the dockworkers old favorite.
