Fresh Haze for Clear Days

Sluice Box Hazy DIPA is fresh as can be, and we're headed down south soon for a tap takeover!


Fresh Haze for Clear Days

A new batch of Sluice Box Hazy DIPA is on tap, and we’re comin’ for ya, Palmer!

A Message from the Brewer

We may have struck gold. Over the past 5 years we have brewed countless Hazy Double IPAs. What can we say, we love them, the people love them. Each recipe has been a slight tweak: different malts, altering the mineral content, swapping out hops, changing the hop addition procedure. The result is a framework we are extremely proud of.

Enter the newly reworked Sluice Box Hazy Double IPA. Built upon a luxurious and fluffy base of Superior Pilsen and Malted Oats and hopped with Idaho 7 in the whirlpool providing a foundational layer of tropical hop flavor and aroma. A blend of English Ale yeast strains provide juicy citrus and stone fruit esters which marry delectably with the grapefruit, passion fruit and berry notes from a luscious dry hop of Mosaic, Idaho 7 and Galaxy hops. Get stoked for Sluice Box Hazy Double IPA to be available year-round!

We’re delighted to have local vendors like The Knotty Pretzel, Meg’s Eats & Treats and Sweet Prik Thai Asian Fusion set up inside at our taproom until it warms up outside, so be sure to give them a try next time you’re in!
