39Rye-ve

39Rye-ve (4.9% ABV) A Maryland style Amber Rye Ale celebrating the heritage of MD style rye whiskey ingredients. Local Chesapeake Malting 6-row barley with rye for a nice bite and corn to smooth it all out. A refreshing and dry rye finish.

Keeper

NITRO: Keeper (4.7% ABV). Dark chocolate yumminess, this Milk Stout is brewed with Chesapeake Bay blue crab shells from JM Clayton’s in Cambridge, a 5thgeneration crab processor. The crab shells give the beer a roundness and minerality.

First Whisper

ON CASK: First Whisper(5.3% ABV) A traditional British ESB cask conditioned by our very own Cask Whisperer, Steve Marsh. The casks have added locally grown Cascade hops from Bullfrog Farm or English Breakfast tea.

2 Paws 2

2 Paws 2(5.8% ABV) – Round 2 of the collaboration brew with Flying Dog. This pale ale is brewed with locally grown paw paw fruits (like a Maryland mango) from Deep Run Orchard, locally grown and malted 2-row and 6-row barley from Dark Cloud Malthouse and Chesapeake Malting, and Galaxy hops. We brewed one with them in Frederick (2 Paws the original last year and 2 Paws 2 this year) and then they came here to help brew one here at Checkerspot. Feel the love!

Strongman

Strongman(10.1% ABV). Double digits here with this Belgian Golden Strong, notes of honey and pear. This one can creep up on you!

Locally Delicious

Locally Delicious(5%) – A Kettle Sour brewed with 100% local ingredients. We used 6-row barley from Chesapeake Malting, wheat from Dark Cloud Malthouse, Nugget hops from Bullfrog Farm, and yeast grown by local wrangler, Jasper Yeast. The sour was finished with local peaches and nectarines from Baugher’s and blackberries and blueberries from Caskwhisper Farms.

Psycho Haze

Psycho “Haze” (6% ABV). This Pale ale has juicy tropical fruit notes from Galaxy, Azacca and Equinox hops. Brewed in the New England pale ale style, but without the chalky haze.

Juniperus

Juniperus(7.4% ABV). An IPA with dank candy flavors and a hint of pine, brewed with Idaho 7 & Mosaic hops and juniper berries.

Stomping Ground

Stomping Ground (5.4% ABV). A Pale Ale heavily hopped with Experimental hop #07270, a trifecta of dankness, pine and delicate citrus. We’re trying to rename the hop Experimental #21230!

Saison de Fleur

Saison de Fleur(5%). A Belgian farmhouse Saison style brewed with rose hips and petals. Very drinkable and approachable for craft beer aficionados and people who enjoy an easy drinking beer.

Daydream

Daydream Cream Ale (5.5% abv) – This smooth and refreshing Cream Ale is the beer you can drink all day long sitting in the sunshine with your head in the clouds.
