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.

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, followed soon after by a 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 take on a classic dry Irish Stout is available in cans every Winter, but you will find this on draft throughout the year.

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%

Highly carbonated and with a crisp, dry finish, the second River Sitter lager is here for your continuing love affair with light beer. IBU 21 ABV 3.9%

We’d like to imagine this is Joel Goodsen’s favorite beer… even though mixing fruit and sour beers is anything but risky business.
