The most notorious of Cahaba’s brews, this drinkable beer has an IBU of just 23. Our American Blonde Ale is brewed with an unmistakable blend of European malts and hops, resulting in a clean finish. Blonde is light-bodied with just enough malt and hop to keep your interest. This beer pairs well with warm Alabama summer days and has become a local favorite for the pool, beach, or a lazy afternoon floating down the Cahaba River. IBU 23 ABV 5.25%
Our White IPA straddles the line between a Belgian Wit and an IPA. With this beer, you will find a dry hopped American IPA with subtle notes of orange peel and coriander. This perfectly balanced hybrid is fermented with a Belgian Ale yeast. The White IPA picks up those refreshing Belgian wheat characteristics while still being pleasantly hop-forward. It’s available year round and is perfect in any weather. IBU 58 ABV 6.1%
An American IPA in the truest sense. The straightforward Oka Uba is loaded up with classic hops at the end of the boil and then dry hopped for an earthy and slightly citrusy flavor and aroma. This gorgeous IPA illuminates an orange and red hue in the light. It is a staple of both our community and our Taproom. The name is derived from the indigenous word for the Cahaba river and can be translated to “the Water Above”. IBU 65 ABV 7%
Don’t let the low gravity fool you! Our American Pale Ale is as surprisingly full-bodied and flavorful as a “small” beer can be. With plenty of malt character and a great mouth feel, don’t be surprised at the good head retention in your pint glass. A bready finish follows the refreshingly subtle hop character and floral aroma for a perfectly balanced session beer. Drink it down and admire the lacing when it’s done. IBU 35 ABV 4.1%
This take on a classic dry Irish Stout is available in cans every Winter, but you will find this on draft throughout the year. It is full of the roasted barley, malt character, and smoothness expected from the style, but with a subtle fruitiness reminiscent of the Irish yeast used. This beer pours with a satisfyingly dark color and surprisingly light body. The Irish Stout is roasty on the front with a chocolatey finish. IBU 35 ABV 4.3%
Named after a genus of Sweetgum tree commonly found along our Cahaba river, Liquidambar is as well-balanced as they come. This American Amber has that quintessential hop-backbone for a slight bitterness that fades in after the beautiful, crisp maltiness. Deep red and easy to drink, Liquidambar is a long-time favorite around town and in our Taproom. IBU 51 ABV 5.25%
This beer varies in flavor from barrel to barrel. You will always find an IPA that has parted ways with it’s signature in-your-face bitterness to welcome flavors more traditional of Oak Aged refreshments. You may fine a hint of oak or a pinch of bourbon on the nose and on your palate. Try a pour of the Oak Aged IPA every so often and compare it to your previous and fond memories. ABV 9.5%
Named after our fondness of baseball, America’s oldest past-time, this Designated Bitter is a traditional English Best Bitter. While the name is deceiving, this smooth style is anything but bitter. The slight caramel and toffee notes from the grain merry handsomely with the slight earthy notes of the hops. Medium bodied and a little nutty, the Designated Bitter really hits it out of the park. IBU 28 ABV 5%
This Schwarzbier, or “black beer”, is just dark enough to satisfy your winter beer cravings. Deep brown in color, Salute Your Schwarz has a slight bitterness and roast flavor upfront and finishes crisp, clean, and easy. You can find this brew in our Taproom or with our friends at Brät Brot! IBU 30 ABV 5.5%
Tart and sweet, this blackberry and peach Berliner Weisse is everything you need in a sour beer. Drink it as your dessert or have dessert before dinner; the After Dinner Berliner is not too sour that it ruins your palate. First, the sweetness from the blackberry and peach meets your tongue. This fruitiness quickly fades into a slightly funky tartness. IBU 2 ABV 4.2% pH 3.45
This Norwegian Brut pale ale was made with specialty Norwegian yeast and dry hopped with the always lovely Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe hops. The fruity aroma from the citrus-forward hops produces a highly approachable Brut. With a slight bitterness complimented by a dry finish and higher-than-normal CO2 level, the Norwegian Brut makes for a truly complex and satisfying pint. IBU 30 ABV 5.3%
BLAZER VICTORY IPA
In honor of UAB winning Cahaba’s football food drive with the most canned food and monetary donations, this American IPA has been named after their fight song! With a sweet herbal and piney flavor, the Blazer Victory IPA has a clean bitterness that does not linger. This brew is medium-bodied with Chinook, Mosaic, and Cascade hops. With a slightly higher-than-normal ABV, the Blazer Victory IPA will have you screaming “Go Blazers!” IBU 71 ABV 7.8%
