Back in Stock: All Things Crux

It's not every day you come across a brewery that is equally adept at making bold, rich dark ales, beautifully fermented sour ales, hoppy beers with elegance, and solid, reliable lagered crushers.

But our friends at Crux are really good at making beer. We're reminded of that every time we pop one of their cans or take a swig off a pint. So when a shipment with pallets full of freshly-packaged beers from our favorite Benders (is that what they're called?) rolls through our door, we get excited.

We're excited. A shipment of Crux's finest has been received and it's ready for your ordering pleasure now. Check it out!

Now available:

Better Off Red
Better Off Red is a brilliant interpretation of the Flanders red style, made in true Crux fashion. It's a rich Belgian red ale that rests with an array of microflora inside Willamette Valley pinot noir barrels to take on a complex fermentation profile and serious depth of flavor. Malty, layered, tart and beguiling.
95 on RateBeer!
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Cast Out
Cast Out is a brilliant IPA abundantly hopped with Australian Galaxy hops for juicy, tropical, floral aromatics in bounds. Delicious, hop-forward, PNW IPA goodness, now in cans!
94 on RateBeer!
Now available in 12oz cans & 1/6bbl kegs.

Gimme Mo
Crux's newest canned IPA comes with a tagline: "not just another IPA"--it's designed to stand out from the pack. It's lower alcohol (about 6%), well-rounded, and aromatic from Mosaic and Citra hops. Smooth and tropical and extra crushable.
Now available in 12oz cans & 1/6bbl kegs.

Half Hitch
Half Hitch offers an even bolder IPA experience--it's a big double IPA with even mo' Mosaic. At 10% ABV, it's shockingly drinkable, with huge flavors of peach, guava, and citrus. A modern classic!

Now available in 500ml bottles & 1/6bbl kegs.

PCT Porter
Named for (and benefitting!) the legendary Pacific Crest Trail, PCT Porter is Crux's newest foray into the less-hoppy realm. It's a dry, super-drinkable everyday porter with a satisfying roasty edge.
Now available in 1/6bbl kegs.

Pilz
Our camping trips and beachside lounging have not been the same since Crux started sending us Pilz in cans. It's a fantastic beer with crackery malts and floral European hop aromatics in perfect balance.
98 on RateBeer!
Now available in 12oz cans & 1/6bbl kegs.

Stout
Crux's aptly-named stout, Stout, is everything you want from the style. It's rich and complex with layers upon layers of malty goodness brought on by a recipe that includes chocolate, roasted, and dark crystal malts.
