An intense explosion of flavors. This rich, malty beer is accented by hints of coffee and chocolate. A perfect compliment to any desert. Smooth, and deep black in color, our stout is also dispensed using a nitrogen/CO2 blend creating a cascade of effervescence which results in a dense cap of foam on top. If you like Guinness, you’ll love our Ludicrous Stout. Even if stouts don’t meet with your personal preferences, try our stout, it will surely make you a convert. COME OVER TO THE DARK SIDE, with a LUDICROUS STOUT!

Deep burgundy in color with a malty sweetness, our version of a Scotch ale is crafted using imported British hops and an authentic yeast strain from Edinburgh Scotland. This beer has a very low hop bitterness that allows the malt character to really predominate. Subtle hints of strawberry come through the nose, while the beer finishes with a slightly smoky, roasted flavor. All of the staff at Ocean Brewing Co. hope you enjoy the full rich flavor of this truly unique beer. Cheers!

DRAGON SPIT IPA
A classic British style ale with a twist. This beer features 7 types of American and English hops and a unique blend of English floor malts. We then dispense this intensely hopped pale ale with a nitrogen/CO2 blend which produces a dense creamy head. The IPA was originally brewed for the British troops stationed in India. To combat beer spoilage during transport, the British brewers increased the alcohol content and added significantly more hops.
