Valve Jockey Series
Bent Paddle Brewing Company is excited to announce the launch of a new beer series in 2017 - the Valve Jockey Brewer’s Series. What is a Valve Jockey? Over the course of the last couple of years, the brewers of Bent Paddle started referring to themselves as “valve jockeys” - always running about the brewery opening and closing valves. The Valve Jockey Brewer’s Series celebrates the creativity of the Bent Paddle brewers by giving them a platform to design, create and bring to life a recipe of their invention. Beyond the creation of the recipe, the brewers will also be able to showcase their passions and interests beyond the brewhouse by nominating a charity where 5% of sales of the beer will be donated. Each brewer’s beer will be released in 16 oz. 4-pack boxes and each can features a likeness of the brewer and the style of beer they created with limited draft options available. There will be two Valve Jockey beers released in 2018 and the beers will be available in all of Bent Paddle’s distribution territories.

This German-style Doppelbock is a full bodied "meal in a glass" - a hearty lager perfect for the winter landscape. Malt forward flavors of bread and caramel dominate the subtle sweetness with a slight hint of chocolate in the finish. Pours a deep amber red with a full effervescent head. Prost!

This beer was designed to celebrate the role of barley in a brewer's arsenal. This "Session" Barleywine ale is a chance to reflect on the role of malted barley in a beer recipe by creating an homage to the style that you can enjoy in a larger glass. Brewed with primarily English malts and yeast, you can expect a nuanced dried fruit/breadiness with a solid supporting a surprising citrus hop presence from the use of citra and cascade hops.
