Year Round Beers

Last Chance IPA

Weyerbacher’s new Last Chance IPA is a west coast-style full-flavored hop assault delightfully lacking in balance. We’ve added a combination of Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Columbus hops are used to produce pungent aromas of grapefruit, pine and citrus. Click the title above to learn more about this beer and how buying some benefits pets in need!


Double Simcoe IPA

Double Simcoe IPA, 9.0% ABV, is a full flavored ale with hints of pineapple and citrus up front, a good malt backbone in the middle and a clean finish. Click the title above to learn more!


Blithering Idiot

Blithering Idiot is brewed in the British tradition of balanced, hearty ales. It’s a deep-copper ale with notes of date and fig. The finish is warm and fruity and begs for the next sip. Enjoy Blithering Idiot in a brandy snifter or wine glass with full-flavored meats and cheeses or as an after dinner drink. Click the title above to learn more!


Old Heathen

Rich, velvety and deliciously complex, Old Heathen (8.0% ABV) is a truly distinctive stout. We use seven types of malt and two varieties of hops to bring forth this big brew.



Tiny is a Belgian inspired Imperial Stout weighing in at 11.8%. You’ll find big chocolate and roasted notes, balanced with the Belgian flavors from the Abbey yeast strain.



Verboten is a Belgian-style Pale Ale with an American twist. It’s brewed with Pale, Carahell and Wheat malts and generously hopped with Cascade to give it a distinctly American character. This medium bodied beer has a crisp palate and moderate bitterness coupled with the fruity esters from our abbey yeast strain. Click the title above to learn more (especially the bit about the name)!


Merry Monks

Merry Monks’ is a Belgian-style Tripel. Pilsner malt combined with an abbey yeast strain yields a remarkable and complex flavor packed with notes of spice, banana and pear. Nicely balanced, with a moderate to dry finish. Click the title above to learn more!


Big Ern's IPA

Weyerbacher brews the house IPA, “Big Ern’s IPA”, for the Pizzeria Uno chain of restaurants in the Philadelphia area. Big Ern’s IPA is a 6% West Coast-Style India Pale Ale with a very smooth, citrusy finish hopped with Cascade, Centennial, Columbus, and Simcoe.

    My favorite is your Merry Monks’. I would like to see you brew more Balgian styles. Maybe a Farmhouse Ale (Saison) or a Belgian Blond Ale.

    Old Heathen has to be the best imperial stout I’ve had. Every time I have one I can’t get over how good it is. Also, it makes for a great black/tan with any ipa. Also, I love Merry Monks. Really happy that I found out about Weyerbacher beer.

      A. Munro,

      Let’s make the IPA a Double Simcoe and I think you’ll have a delicious Weyerbacher Imperial Black and Tan. (R)

      • avatar A. Munro says:

        Just picked up a case of the Double Simcoe and I have to say you couldn’t be more correct. Fantastic taste with an Old Heathen, and really great by itself also. Thanks for the tip.

  3. avatar Jim Jones says:

    Please make Insanity year round!!

  4. avatar Drunken Druid says:

    Merry Monks, IMHO, is one of the best “introduction” beers available.
    For folks drinking the BudMillerCoorsCorona swill, Merry Monks provides an easy break… as opposed to other big beers that have too much alcohol or density hanging around, or bitter IPA’s.
    Merry Monks offers something sweet, as well as highly alcoholic. It at least causes drinkers to reconsider what beer can be.

    That said… add Verbotten to the year-round line-up… even if that means making MM a seasonal treat.

    Where can I buy your beer in the Marietta, Ga area?

    Where is Storm King? Where?

  7. avatar Elizabeth says:

    Just picked up a 6-pack of Old Heathen on a whim and I am SOLD. This stuff is fantastic! I’m very curious about Merry Monks now…I didn’t see it in the store where I got the Old Heathen so I’ll have to track it down.

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Thanks, E! MM is the most widely-available style so you should be able to find it without much trouble at all. It comes in 750ml and 12 oz bottles.

  8. avatar Diana says:

    Keep up the great work. Blithering idiot is a wonderful beer with a clean finish. Its hard to find in small town USA, but its worth the effort.

  9. avatar Russ says:

    Finally found Verboten and Muse up in Athens yesterday, I live in Atlanta but we really get a scattering of Weyerbacher beers, Fireside and Autumnfest both aren’t sold anywhere locally either. No one can tell me anything about Blasphemy though, did we get it this year or did it not make it this far South? Really, really want to try it.

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      PLEASE don’t drink that Muse; it is about 3 years old and will not taste as was intended. As was Muse, Autumnfest and Fireside are seasonal beers and come out only once a year in just in advance of the season for which they are intended. Georgia has access to all the same beers as the rest of our distributors in other states. Develop a relationship with the beer purchaser in your favorite store and begin requesting the beers you are looking for in advance of their release dates and you will have better luck. Cheers!

      • avatar Russ says:

        I did end up drinking the Muse, I figured if it was bad I could pour it out, but it was still very, very good. If the age made it suffer I can’t imagine how good it was fresh because I was thoroughly impressed. Might go get a few more now. As a side note the Thirteen ages incredibly well, had my second one and it was even better than the first a few months ago. Eager to buy the rest of their stock up on that one for sure.

  10. avatar Brad says:

    Your Double Simcoe IPA is one f-ing good beer! Major props on concocting such a great brew!

  11. avatar John Schmitt says:

    Heard about you guys on WIP’s summer beer brawl! Macnow and Gargano’s raving about Merry Monk made me try it; Six pack and a case later, it’s my absolute favorite! Looking forward to trying more!

  12. avatar Matt M says:

    Was just at Apollo for dinner and had some Weyerbacher sampling. Loved the Double Simcoe and Verboten.

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Glad you enjoyed them! I was the guy serving. Hope to see you down at the brewery one day! Remember: tours and tastings are free! Click the “Visitors Center” tab above to get more info. Cheers!

  13. avatar Seven says:

    Job’s in Morgantown, and it’s hell. Redemption is virtually non-existent, but…
    Tracked down a case of Double Simcoe up in PA. Sinfully good!!
    Will stock up with Blithering Idiot before returning to Purgatory!

  14. avatar Aus says:

    Hiya, just discovered your beers, wondering if you could post up your New Mexico distributor (if there is one).

    Thanks! Looking forward to more.

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Unfortunately, we are not available in NM yet. We are presently not opening any more states for distribution – you’re gonna have to find a trading buddy!

  15. avatar Brian says:

    I love Blithering Idiot and Merry Monks! Would love to try some of your other year round beers. Do yo have any idea why I cant seem to find Double Simcoe, Hops Infusion, Verboten, or Big Erns IPA? I live in MD and if you have any suggestions let me know!

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      In MD, you can use http://www.greatbrewers.com to search our beers and locate where individual stores and bar/restaurants have recently brought the beer in! Check it out! As for Big Ern;s, you’ll have to travel to the Philadelphia area to enjoy it on draft at a local Pizzaria Uno’s… it isn’t packaged in anything other than kegs for them. Cheers!

  16. avatar Larry says:

    I heard a rumor that Hops Infusion will soon be discontinued, please reconsider. It is incredibly hard to find bold IPAs that aren’t overbearing or prohibitively expensive. You nailed it with that one.

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      We’re definitely replacing Hops Infusion. Good news is that the test batch IPA ‘Crimson’ scored the highest marks from the people who drank it and so we think it is an excellent upgrade. Hops Infusion is a good beer, no doubt; I have it on draft at home! Buy some Hops Infusion now and enjoy it while it lasts and then (if you care to do so), please try the as yet unnamed new IPA and then come back here and reply to this comment with your review! I suspect you will like it more… that’s the whole reason we’re doing this! Cheers!

      • avatar ed says:

        did an infusion and a last chance side by side. infusion is fantastic, but last chance… even more so. well done.

        • avatar Bill Bragg says:

          I actually just did, too! I have HI on draft at home and opened a bottle of LCIPA side-by-side. I think the new beer is the HI of the present, so to speak. My OH kicked… maybe I will have LCIPA and HI on tap side by side at home? Hmmm…… :^)

        • avatar Bill Bragg says:

          Thanks very much, Ed!

    Recently discovered the Simcoe IPA, oh man this is now my favorite double IPA around! So much awesome stuff going on in that beer! Found it at Wegmans, will be getting it more regularly! Cheers!!

  20. avatar Tim says:

    Loving the merry monks. The Belgian double and winter ale are in my top nostalgic favs. Glad to see you constantly refining your selections. I’ve been a happy customer from the beginning.

  21. avatar Mackay says:

    Just had Tiny at Sontes restaurant in Rochester MN. Wow. Totally unexpected. My thanks, and will be buying as much as I can find here to try your other brews.

  22. avatar sb2bowl says:

    Was just introduced to your selections from a friend; our local deli (north eastern PA) carries Merry Monks. Love the brew, taste, and flavor. Thanks for taking pride in your beer, and distributing a great product.

  23. avatar Observer375 says:

    For those who love the Double Simcoe IPA, try also Victory’s Yakima Glory, which is a seasonal. Like Warsteiner’s Dunkel, it will make the Weyerbacher all the more desirable. Three of the greatest beers ever; they complement each other well, and we all need a little palate relief occasionally.

  24. Just had the double simcoe last night for the first time. …simply amazing, an IPA lovers wet dream. THANKYOU!

  25. avatar Sc'Eric says:

    Not seeing Fireside anywhere on the site. What’s the status? This is our annual February fave at Fuji & Jade Garden in State College.

    • avatar Bill Bragg says:

      Sorry, Sc’Eric! We retired that beer last year and removed it from our website due to a conflict over the name from another brewery. It was a technicality but we’re happy to not make too many waves in the industry when it comes to branding.

    All but given up on beer until my girlfriend turned me on to Blithering Idiot. It has now become my “crack” beer, it is that good!!! I have pretty much given up wine and now have come back to beer and enjoy this incredible beer. So much so that my local beer store who one had to keep special ordering it for me now keeps it in stock for me. I tell everyone I meet how awesome it is….do you guys need a spokesperson??
