Zed’s in the Bog–Cranberry Wit
You’ll embrace the holidays like never before with this tart-yet dry Wit made with 53 pounds of local dry-picked cranberries! ABV: 5.0% IBU: 16
Zed’s on the West Coast v2–IPA
We tweaked the original recipe a touch to bring out the Columbus hop. First wort hopping achieves bitterness thruout the swallow without the astringency. ABV: 6.0% IBU: 72
Zed’s on a Plane–WeissPale
Picture this: You get on a plane in Germany with our Berlinnerweiss and our Pale Ale 42. Somewhere across the Atlantic turbulence hits. the beers mix. Lemony on the nose and a tangy finish. Sound good? ABV: 5.2 IBU: 55
Zed’s in NJ–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 NJ–Jersey Blonde
This light bodied drinker is sweet on the nose and smooth on the tongue. Clean finishing with Crystal hops to give that pallet cleansing sensation. 5.5%ABV, 24 IBUs
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 London–English Mild
Wotcha mate, fancy a pint? There are seven different grains in this Mild, I won’t ask you to identify them all! ABV: 3.9% IBU: 19
Zed’s In the Pacific–Vanilla Porter
A good base porter that sits on hand-cut vanilla beans for a couple of weeks. It’s like being in Tahiti. Well, actually not because I’ve been there. But its tasty anyway. ABV: 5.3% IBU: 26
Zed’s in the US–Am. Brown w/Honey
Two (separate fermentations) + Four (types of hops) + Seven (different grains) + 60 (pounds of local honey) = one amazing beer. This American Brown is rich, sweet, and finishes with a spark. A nice chill chaser. ABV: 6.2% IBU: 27
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
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!
