Head Brewer Lucas Ratcliff on Chainless' beer selection

Reckless Red Lager: “It's a kind of medium full-bodied red lager. Not many people lager a red, so it's kind of a unique idea. ... It's kind of a neat style to play with.”

Chin Split Porter: “You get a lot of the coffee notes and bitterness ... and those little chocolatey tastes at the end. Clean finish. Real full body. Lots of calories in that one – it's a meal in itself.”

Clipless Wheat: “This can be paired with an orange or a lemon, or anything like that. The ladies love those ones. It's a really nice, clean summer drinker.”

Grip Slip IPA: “A nice, classic, bitter American IPA. It's got quite a bit of bitterness to it, a lot of aroma, a lot of back flavor. I used a little bit of pine in there to give some earthiness to it.”

Brút-al IPA: “This one's my favorite. This is one I've been working on for a long time. This is a Brut IPA, which is just attenuating it way down the scale to get that dry, champagney finish. ... You still get a lot of those aromas, a lot of that floral and fruit taste out of the Citra hops in there.”
