Dazed & Confused

Straja

Wild-Hopped Ale

Tapping into my roots, "Straja" is an homage to my home region of Bucovina while also paying tribute to the band of the same name, whose interpretation of an early 20th century Romanian song inspired this name. Brewed with a single malt and using wild-hops from a village near my hometown of Suceava, it has a malty-sweet taste, with hints of dried fruit and honey.

Bourbon Chocolate Coffee Stout

Honouring the psychedelic-blues masterpiece that is Led Zeppelin's "Dazed and Confused", this stout is as far-out as the music that inspired it. Conditioned on bourbon soaked oak chips, and spiced with vanilla, cocoa nibs and coffee, it was left to mature for several months for it to become such a groovy beer.

Darkest Days

Imperial Mocha Stout

Inspired by one of Black Label Society's most moving songs, "Darkest Days" is an imperial stout brewed with Zakk Wylde's very own Valhalla Java Odinforce Blend coffee. Fueled by death and spiced with cocoa nibs, this beer packs quite the punch in both flavour and alcohol. Do you bleed black?

Bourbon Milk Stout

Paying homage to Steve Vai's "Tender Surrender", this smooth and sticky stout blends strong vanilla notes with a rich and almost chocolaty sweetness. With extra conditoning on a bed of bourbon soaked oak chips followed by long term bottle aging, flavours come together nicely in a well ballanced concoction.

Maggot Brain

Black IPA

A tribute to Funkadelic's "Maggot Brain", this Black IPA is the ideal transition from hoppy summer pale ales to darker and richer late autumn beers. It might not be as mind-melting as Eddie Hazel's guitar solo, but it makes up for it in flavour.

Gagged & Bound

West Coast IPA

Brewed with a single-malt and single-hop recipe, this West Coast IPA honours one of the greatest jazz-rock songs of all time, Poliphony's "Gagged & Bound". Playground in a bottle, this particular IPA is the testing ground for me to try out new hops that I haven't used before, showcasing their potential and helping me better understand their aromas and flavors.

Cocoa Brown Ale

Inspired by the song from The Doors, "Wishful Sinful" is a chocolaty American brown ale, whose roasted maltiness blends smoothly with flavours of cocoa, and the earthy notes and smooth bitterness of its hops.

Dust N' Bones

American Pale Ale

Named after the well known Guns N' Roses song, "Dust N' Bones" was a one-off batch that got me hooked on beer brewing. Despite being already packed with American hops, half of this was also dry hopped with Romanian wild hops as an experiment.
