Conceived as an American Amber Ale, this amber defies the convention presenting two distinct flavour profiles. Pouring a beautiful tawny colour with a fine lace head, it first presents a rich coffee flavour which then evolves to something more dry with a crisp Cascade hop finish. A winner of numerous awards at the California State Fair Commercial Craft Brewery Awards, including the gold medal in 2012.

The first recipe brewed and still the cornerstone of the Devil’s Canyon lineup. This complex Scotch Ale is medium bodied, very smooth and drinkable despite the complex layering of malts and hefty 7.4% ABV. It starts with a gentle sweetness, carrying only enough hops for balance and a finishes with light peat smokiness with touches of chocolate.
Often paired with meats, artisan cheeses and even ice cream, Full Boar won Devil’s Canyon their first award at their first California competition in 2002 and hasn’t looked back. Multiple awards later, they finished first again in 2010 and 2012.

Brewing with champagne yeast lends Belle a light and fizzy texture very similar to true champagne. And, like champagne, it would be welcome at a wedding, or, unlike champagne, an ordinary Wednesday.

There are many well balanced flavours, but none are overwhelming, nor even dominant. This makes Belle very drinkable.

Belle is also very versatile. It paired well with birthday cake; A.Z. himself turned 3 recently. He, of course, did not partake. It paired well with pizza. It felt hedonistic with chocolate. Our friends and families all enjoyed this beer, including a few people who do not like beer ordinarily.
