Zed’s on the West Coast–IPA v6
Back to the tropics! 7 separate hop additions were used to blend pine and anise with black currants. After the swallow you’ll catch plantains! ABV: 6.0% IBU: 75
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
Rich and creamy with a smooth mouthfeel that is balanced by a slight “bite” from the yeast. It gets it coppery glow from a kiss of caramel 120 and black patent malt. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 19
Zed’s In Ireland–dry stout
Dry? Sweet? Milk? These are just words. Beautiful Bakers chocolate and coffee on the nose, bitter chocolate in the mouth. ABV: 4.1% IBU: 27
Zed’s in the US–American Brown w/Honey
Two (separate fermentations) + Four (types of hops) + Seven (different grains) + 60 (pounds of honey) = one amazing beer. This American Brown is rich, sweet, and finishes with a spark. ABV: 5.3% IBU: 27
Zed’s on the Liffey–Dublin Porter
A perfect example of Approachable Craft Beer. This Dublin Porter starts slightly smokey. Burnt toast aroma moves to a light roast in the mouth and finishes with dark fruit. All in a 4.0% beer. ABV: 4.0% IBU: 21
Zed’s Lost in the Woods (again)–Summer Berry
Somehow Zed got lost in the woods again, though this time its both blackberries and raspberries to the rescue. ABV: 5.1% IBU: 22
Zed’s in NJ–Hi Jersey Blonde!
A higher-octane version of our Zed’s in NJ–Jersey Blonde ABV: 6.7% IBU: 25
Zed’s on the Slide–Banana Gold
Let the banana esters in this beer slip and slide down your throat! We pushed the yeast to its breaking point to produce the flavors we were looking for. ABV: 5.4% IBU: 20
Zed’s in Berlin–WeiSS
It’s like you’ve just opened a can of lemonade and inhaled. Hazy and lemony with a fairly dry, tart finish. ABV: 4.8% IBU 18
Zed’s in Georgia–Roasted Peanut* Stout
This *nitro* only beer combines a rich stout with roasted peanuts and a touch of salt. Let it warm up a touch. (Did we mention it contains peanuts?) ABV: 4.7 IBU: 26
Zed’s in Chillum–SMaSH Gold
Made entirely of grain grown right here in New Jersey, you’ll love the bready sweetness complimented by Brewers Gold hopping. What does SMaSH mean? Just ask! ABV: 5.9% IBU: 25
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!
