(5.1% ABV, 29 IBU)
Style: Classic American Pilsner
With a very small amount of melanoidin malt to give the beer a little more depth of character, expect a straight-forward beer with a creamy mouthfeel, a dry finish, and floral and spicy notes from Cluster hops.
(4.3% ABV, 32 IBU)
Style: Milk Stout
This thick, sweet milk stout was aged over almonds. In fact, “Mandelmilch” is German for “Almond Milk.” Take note, however, that this is a milk stout brewed with almonds, not a stout brewed with almond milk.
Imperial Kuzzin KYsser
(7.9% ABV, 45 IBU)
Style: Imperial Kentucky Common
A favorite of the miners in the Louisville, Kentucky area circa the late 1800’s, this near-extinct style of beer is dark amber, malty, slightly sweet, and features Cluster hops (a classic American hop used in many historical beers) and Tettnang hops (a German hop that celebrates the miners’ ancestry). This imperial version was originally brewed for Factotum’s 2nd anniversary.
(5.5% ABV, 37 IBU)
Style: American Pale Ale
Originally a collaboration between Denver’s Factotum and Indianapolis’ Tow Yard, this beer is an homage to both cities’ favorite retired quarterback. Oatmaha features sage to represent Colorado, corn to represent Indiana, and oats to represent the two horse-themed teams for which this beer’s honoree played. Tasting notes: like touchdowns in your mouth.
(6.5% ABV, 72 IBU)
Style: American IPA
An IPA that’s all English in the malts, all American in the hops. With a slightly fruity aroma, this beer begins toasty, sweet, and slick up front then transitions into a big, bitter, piney hop blast.
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Tuckaboo
(8% ABV, 47 IBU)
Style: English Barleywine (Winter Warmer)
We took the dark, strong, well-spiced Tuckaboo winter warmer and put it into a Bourbon barrel for 10 months. The resulting beer is a complex medley of spices and warm whiskey notes.
(11.3% ABV, 43 IBU)
Style: English Barleywine
This is a big, boozy beer that’s big on malt flavor and with just enough hops to even things out.
(7.1% ABV, 59 IBU)
Style: American IPA
Pale in color and with a little haze from dry-hopping, Myrcene Me! starts with citrus juiciness and finishes with a dry, pine-like bitterness.
The Fourth Watch
(11.5% ABV, 22 IBU)
Style: Belgian Dark Strong Ale
With hints of spice and dark fruit courtesy of the yeast, this dark, powerful beer features a wine-like finish from the addition of raisins in the secondary.
(5.8% ABV, 43 IBU)
Style: Colonial-Style Porter
This rustic and roasted porter featured hints of chocolate, molasses, maple syrup, and wood before finishing dry.
(5.5% ABV, 35 IBU)
Style: Brown Ale
This brown ale features a balance of light-roasted coffee flavors followed by subtle notes of vanilla.
(9.4% ABV, 13 IBU)
Big fruity and spicy yeast characteristics intermingle with sweet cherry tea in this light but boozy Belgian ale.
Almost every beer at Factotum is a rotating beer but, because they were brewed on a smaller 1/2 BBL system, these particular beers rotate in and out much more quickly; ask your bartender about the day’s selection.
