Our Brews

At Gnarly Barley we aim to create a diverse and unique selection of brews by borrowing techniques and recipes from brewers across the world. This is achieved by blending the old-world approach with the countless combinations of fresh quality ingredients available to the modern brewer. Our beers are not crafted based on specific style guidelines, but are created by allowing the ingredients to speak to us. The possibilities are endless. Check out more information about where to find our beer.

YEAR-ROUND BEERS

Catahoula Common

Catahoula Common

The Catahoula Common isn’t quite so common. It is a light colored, refreshing lager with the “bite” of an ale. Named after the state dog of Louisiana, Catahoula’s light body and slight fruitiness from the atypical fermentation temperature creates an enjoyable brew for the dog days of our humid climate.

Radical Rye P.A.
