Zed’s in Ireland–Dry Stout
GOLD MEDAL WINNER @ 2019 US Open Beer Championships! A feast for all the senses–beautiful bakers chocolate and coffee on the nose, bitter chocolate in the mouth. This dark beauty finishes clean and dry.
Zed’s in The Universe–Pale 42
Made with mostly American 2 Row and supported by Centennial, Cascade and Amarillo hops, this beer has an appealing floral nose and apricot undertones on the tastebuds. ABV: 5.0% IBU: 42
Zed’s in the Backyard–Copper Cream Ale
Rich and Creamy, with a smooth mouthfeel balanced by a slight “bite” from the yeast and a light hopping with Centennial. Gets its coppery glow from a kiss of caramel and black-patent malt. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 19
Zed’s on the West Coast–W.C. IPA
Number nine…number nine…number nine… ABV: 6.4% IBU: 68
Zed’s on a Plane–WeissPAle
This refreshing hybrid is the love child of a BerlinnerWeiss and a Pale Ale. Lemony on the nose with zesty citrus hop blend (Amarillo, Mandarina, Barvia ) and a tangy finish. The secret? Sweet orange peel. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 50
Zed’s in Knoxville–Amarillo Wheat IPA
Inspired by a trip to TN, this wheat IPA combines a delicious wheaty backbone with a generous amount of Amarillo. Worth the trip! ABV: 5.5 IBU: 55
Zed’s in NJ–Jersey blonde
Hopped with a blend of Amarillo. Simcoe and Eukanot, this lightbodied, easy drinker is sweet on the nose and smooth on the tongue. Finished with a dry hopping of Ekuanot (citrus, lemon) to give that pallet cleansing sensation. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 24
Zed’s in Kilkenny–Irish Red
Our modern interpretation of a classic style. Slightly sweet and a beautiful color flows into high drinkability. ABV: 5.2 IBU: 21
Zed’s on the Thames–English Brown Porter
our Brown Porter artfully blends the new world and old–Fuggles and Liberty hops mix to create a new classic. ABV: 5.1% IBU: 27
Who is Zed, anyway?
a Bado family legend
According to Bado family lore, our great-grandfather worked in the mines in Chop, Hungary. On his days off and as he could, he would brew beer for the other miners. The containers? Steel pails. I think he should be credited for inventing the Growler and Crowler!
