Checkerspot Brewing Company

Psycho Haze

Psycho Haze (6.7%). This NEIPA has juicy, tropical fruit notes from Galaxy,Azaccaand Equinox hops, with a touch of local honey.


Snakebite (5.6%). Is it cider or is it beer? It’s both – this cider/pale ale blend has beautiful flavors and aromas from the freshly pressed apples from Baugher’s Orchard.

Swaen Song

Swaen Song (6%). This German pilsner is a very special collaboration to remember Baltimore Brewing Company/DeGroen’s and the original team. Using 100% Swaen malt (owned by Theo DeGroen, we used traditional Saaz hops with the newer Cashmere hops to honor history as well as the future. The earthy/spicy Saaz blends well with the lemon/lime flavors from Cashmere hops – refreshingly dry finish.
