Little Fish Beer Archive: Every beer we have ever brewed

This is a history of every beer ever brewed at Little Fish Brewing Company. We are constantly improving our recipes, creating new recipes, brewing interesting one-off beers, and collaborating with friends. Have a look!

Estate Wet Hop Pale Ale (2022)

We brewed this very balanced, old-school pale ale with fresh, wet hops from our hop arbor, just steps outside our brewery in Athens Ohio. The malts used were Haus Malts pale, honey, and caramel 90. Bittering hops were Auburn Acres Triple Pearl & Comet. Towards the end of the boil, we added over 30 pounds of fresh ... Read More

Te Araroa

Hazy I.P.A. brewed with a base of Ohio malts, and New Zealand hops (Nectaron, Rakau, Nelson Sauvin). Named for New Zealand’s equivalent of the Appalachian Trail (pronounced “Tee Ar-ah-Roh-ah”)

Flavor Profile: Citrus, tropical fruit, and light grassy aroma. Juicy hop flavor with some of the classic sauvignon blanc grape character or Nelson Sauvin. Fluffy and light malt body.

Sherry Barrel Maker of Things

This variant of Maker of Things, our foeder-aged, mixed-culture sour red ale, was further aged in a single American sherry barrel for over 2 years. It’s really good. The oak character is awesome and the sherry oxidation softens the sourness somewhat. Grab a bottle!

Misty Step

For all our love of Belgian beer, we haven’t explored abbey ale brewing at Little Fish all that much. Misty Step is our first crack at a Belgian dubbel: Mashed with Ohio malts plus some Sinamar for color, hopped lightly with American-noble hybrid hops, and spiced lightly some of our favorites: lemon peel, corainder, and grains of paradise. Fermented with ... Read More

Pinche Guey

“Pinche Guey” is a Mexican Spanish expression that is sort of an “affectionate insult” to a buddy. It’s also the name of our Mexican hot chocolate, spirit barrel-aged stout. 2022’s blend is composed of the same threads of imperial stout as Moonville 2022, but at different ratios, and is then infused in the blending tank with whole cacao nibs, whole ...

Picture This

Picture This is a fun little pale ale brewed with a base of Ohio malts, hopped in the kettle with Michigan Cashmere, and fermented with a kveik strain. Dry-hopped with Rakau and Mosaic Cryo. A one-off brew? We’ll see!

Moonville Stout – 2022 blend

Moonville Stout is our annual-ish blend of bourbon & spirit barrel-aged imperial stout. 2022 saw the blending of a bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout, and a rye whiskey barrel-aged imperial milk stout.

This beer is inspired by the lore of the “haunted” Moonville train tunnel, a local legend in the historical mining town of Moonville, in the Zaleski State Forest. Dare ya ... Read More

They Go Low, We Go High

Collaboration with our good friends at Seventh Son Brewing, and a fundraiser for Women Have Choices Ohio, funding abortion access in these uncertain times.

This 100% Ohio-grown beer is, loosely, a Finnish-style sahti (a farmhouse ale brewed with copious amounts of whole juniper branches). Ours is a bit lower in alcohol than your typical sahti, but that’s farmhouse mentality for ya. ... Read More

The Orchestra Question

New I.P.A.! Maybe a one-off? More West Coasty than Hazy…but also pretty hazy. Mashed with Ohio barley and hopped with CTZ & Simcoe in the kettle. Fermented with thiolized hazy yeast. Hopped in the kettle and dry-hopped with Simcoe and Zappa. (The name is a reference from the Frank Zappa movie “200 Motels”, if you were wondering.)

Kvass de Piquette – Blackberry

Kvass de Piquette takes its inspiration from 2 non-beer beverages: Kvass, a lightly-fermented, bread-based beverage from Eastern Europe, and Piquette, a low-alcohol wine made by rehydrating an already-pressed grape must.

It’s a truly locally sourced, farmhouse table beer, mashed with Haus Malts Ohio pilsner & spelt malts, and over 100 pounds of house-baked sourdough bread per 10 barrel batch. It’s hopped ... Read More
