Long Snout Stout is a little different than most commercial stouts out there, this is on the rich, dark and toasty side.
We joke around here about the name, which Rinehart‘s wife came up with. Originally it was to be named “Out and About Stout” (Say that with a Canadian accent) as Rinehart’s way of making light of his wife’s accent. She replied,
“Ha, funny. How about Long Snout Stout.”
So the running joke is, “Drink a few of these and try to say the name three times fast.”
Brewed for people who don’t want a hop bomb. Brewed to have a gentle balance, not quite a session, but damn close. This beer is brewed with only the finest crystal and other specialty malts and hops. Tied for first in the Washingtonian Magazine’s July 2010 “Best Of” Issue.
“Rockville” is our take on the Kölsch style golden ale.
We actually had a few Germans come in here once, telling us we could not call this a Kolsch, because this style is brewed in Köln (Cologne). Rinehart, being a smart ass, replied,
“Fine, we name this for the region it was brewed in! You can’t brew a ‘Rockville’ because its only brewed in Rockville!”
Perfect for the warmer months. Refreshing, with a little more hop kick than our German counterpart.

Taj Mahound is a hoppy brown ale. The norm for brewing in some cases, is to add hop additions from high Alpha (higher IBUs) to lower Alpha, we didn’t follow that, in fact we reversed it. We believe these reversed alpha hops, for lack of a better term, “low to high,” brings out a totally different flavor profile than your standard IPA.
The name came about when Rinehart was looking for a catchy name that both matched the style but still remained dog themed. He called up one of Wimsey’s people came up with it, by accident! She was thinking “Taj Mahall,” but that was already taken, and it wasn’t dog themed. She laughed when Rinehart said he loved it, and so the name was born.
