Zed’s on the West Coast–IPA v8
For Volume 8, we kept the base grain bill and Fuggles, but not much else. Tomahawk, Magnum at the 20 min mark, but then all Loral thru flame out, producing a high IBU, but balanced IPA. ABV: 6.0% IBU: 82
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 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 NJ–Jersey Blonde
The beer you love is back. This easy-drinking Blonde will remind you how approachable craft beer can be ABV: 5.5% IBU: 30
Zed’s in San Fran–Brut IPA
Zed’s in San Fran—Brut IPA is a delicious take on what an IPA can be. This beer his highly effervescent and finishes quite dry. You’ll love how the combination of Crystal, Simcoe and Citra hops shine. ABV: 5.7 IBU: 58
Zed’s in Kilkenny–Irish Red
How many sips does it take to get to the bottom of Zed’s in Kilkenny—Irish Red? Count the lace rings to find out! Our Irish Red represents a modern interpretation of the classic style: slightly sweet with just a touch of esters balanced by the finish. ABV: 5.3 IBU: 20
Zed’s in Liverpool–Northern England Brown Ale
Here’s a style you don’t see that often. Our Northern England Brown Ale futures a pleasant caramel biscuit base backed by fuggles wrapped in a beautiful reddish hue. Geek alert: ask our Brewer or two Cicerones how this style differs from other Browns.
Zed’s Snowbird Envy–Gose Style
Zed’s envious of the snowbirds! We created this Gose to start with a sharp aroma followed by a refreshingly lime and salty finish. Hold onto Summer as long as possible! ABV: 5.4 IBU: 18
Zed Cannot Tell A Lie–Cherry Blonde
Now this is a President’s Day promotion you can get behind! We blended a bit of wild cherry and citrus into a blonde for a refreshingly quaffable mix! ABV: 5.2 IBU: 24
Zed’s Up-Side Down–Down Under Pale Ale
Zed’s turned all around and upside down with this pale ale! Pacific Gem, Green Bullet and Dr. Rudi combine to create a perfume bitterness that lingers in the mouth after the swallow. Dry hopped with even more Dr. Rudi to create the spicy afterglow. ABV: 5.5% IBU: 69
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!
