On tap at Gentle Giant:

 Procreator Doppelbock—A full-bodied beer with bold malt flavors giving off notes of toasted
bread, caramel and raisins.

base along with a special variety of dark malts to give off notes of dark fruit, chocolate, coffee
and a rich malt sweetness.

 Sauropod BlackBerry Berlinner Weisse—A light refreshing German-style classic with notes of
blackberry jam and lemon preserve and a dry zesty refreshing finish.

 Paleolithic Pils German Pilsner—A crisp Pilsner brewed with a touch of Munich malt to add a
slight biscuit flavor profile. Gently hopped throughout the boil with Hallertau Blanc gives it the
perfect balance of bitterness and floral aromas.

amber with an intense citrus aroma and flavor including grapefruit and lime aromas along with
gooseberry, passion fruit and lychee notes.

 Jurassic IPA— This house IPA is packed with juicy Simcoe giving off bright citrus flavors of
grapefruit and orange. A dash of Chinook balances off the flavor profile with some pine and
earthy undertones as well as a touch of spice.

 Baryonyx Black Lager—Made using bottom-fermenting lager yeast which imparts a dry
crispness to this beer, this brew has a malty sweetness and a hoppy bitterness, with notes of
coffee and chocolate.

 G.G.B.C. Lite Lager—This lite lager was drawn up using the signature Pilsner and corn malts,
then gently hopped throughout the boil with centennial to complete the light complexity with a
hint of fresh squeezed lemon and pine aroma.
