LW_Workhorse_Pint_wlogoWorkhorse IPA

Workhorse is, hands down, our biggest seller! This is an extremely well balanced yet super flavorful IPA brewed in the West Coast style. The over-the-top aroma comes from a heavy handed dose of hops in the kettle, hop back, and 2 separate dry-hop additions. A slightly sweet finish helps balance the hop bitterness and creates an ale that is both big on flavor yet remains quite drinkable.

Comments from the Brewery:
“A Northwest IPA that is not too bitter and full of flavor.”

NOORG-LW_FreeRangeRed_Pint_wlogo copyFree Range Red Ale

Free Range Red is a rich copper-colored ale that breaks red ale tradition with loads of fresh hop flavor. Medium in body, Free Range boasts a caramel sweetness that blends wonderfully with the smooth hop flavor. The result is a balanced, super drinkable beer.

Comments from the Brewery:
“This beer is Laurelwood. Hoppy but balanced, and super drinkable. Free Range is by far our most popular beer.”

Red_Elephant_6Pack_Angle2Red Elephant IRA

This is the ultimate hybrid — a beer with the hop bill of our Green Elephant IPA, but the malts of our Free Range Red. This number packs a powerful punch of pine, citrus, tropical, and resinous hop aroma and flavor, harmonizing with the caramel malt body we know and love in our famous red ale.

LW_Golden_Pint_wLogo_02Golden Ale

Our lightest ale is crisp, dry, and refreshing – eliminating the need for craft beer training wheels. This beer is available on draft year-round and available in six-pack cans from May to September.

Comments from the Brewery:
“Though our lightest ale, this is actually one that takes great deal of precision on the brewers’ part. This subtle, easy drinker showcases the thought and care that goes into each beer we brew.”

Portland Pale Project

The Portland Pale Project is a pub series focused on highlighting the variety within the Pale Ale style, as well as the creativity of our brewers. The first few years of the project produced a number of beers, each one different than the next. Today, we stick to a few tried and trues– Coniferous Pale Ale for winter, Piston Pale for spring, Pale Pony ISA for summer, and Cable Knit Rye Pale for fall. Read more about this bunch over on our Seasonals page.
