Zed’s in Ireland–Dry Stout
GOLD MEDAL WINNER @ 2020 NY INTERNATIONAL BEER CHAMPIONSHIP. 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
GOLD MEDAL WINNER @ 2020 NY INTERNATIONAL BEER CHAMPIONSHIP 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
SILVER MEDAL WINNER @ 2019 NY INTERNATIONAL BEER COMPETITION 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 in the 10th–Miôu Tiéu Chanh
An amazingly complex beer that changes flavor sip after sip. Inspired by a beer enjoyed at Le Triangle during Paris Beer Week, this Vietnamese farm house is made with Pepper and Salt from Vietnam and “dry hopped” with lemongrass. It’s singularly hopped with Motueka and blended with a gallon of fresh lime. ABV: 5.4% IBU 28
Zed’s in Milwaukee–American Lager
A whole lot more flavorful than what you find in 30 packs, our lager is crisp and clean with a slight sweetness from maize. Traditionally hopped with both Saaz and Liberty. ABV: 5.1% IBU: 20.
Zed’s in the Amazon–Açai Blue Kölsch
Harnessing the power of a superfruit, we created a beer that embraces the crispness of a Kölsch and the tartness of Açai and Blueberry. Perfect for lounging outside while social distancing. ABV: 4.6% IBU: 25
Zed’s Got A Cuppa–Coffee Porter
We’ve teamed up with our friends at Rich’s Micro Roast to create our new sessionable coffee porter. A delicate coffee note on the nose gives way to robust dark fruit and roast in the mouth. ABV: 4.3% IBU: 20
Zed’s Up A Kriek–Sour Cherry Gose
This classic Gose touches all the senses: a bit of salt, a bit of sour, a bit of cherry—the perfect combination for your senses! ABV: 4.4% IBU: 4
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!
