Gilgamesh Brewing + The Builders and the Butchers
American Brown Ale-Devil Brown
Made with Munich and darker crystal malts to give roasted notes with a small amount of peated+smoked malt to give it mild smoky notes.

Stage Diver is named by a Weinland fan via Facebook and is a blend of four barrel aged beers which will be something uncategorizable and unique 10%
