Measurement Reference Guide:

ABV

Alcohol By Volume: A standard measure of how much alcohol is contained in an alcoholic beverage (expressed as a percentage of total volume).

SRM

Standard Reference Method: One of several systems modern brewers use to specify beer color. This number represents a single point in the absorption spectrum of beer.
*Please note, all beer styles 8% or above will be served in a 10oz full pour only.

IBU

International Bitterness Units: An international scale measuring the perceived bitterness of beer, with lower values being generally “less bitter” and higher values “more bitter”.

*Please note, all beer styles 8% or above will be served in a 10oz full pour only.

GR

Gluten-Reduced: Many of our beers are marked with a “GR” due to the use of an enzyme called Clarity-Ferm, which significantly reduces the gluten content in beers made with barley and wheat. A Clarity-Ferm treated beer made from barley or wheat usually tests below 20 ppm of gluten, the current international standard for gluten free. – Information from White Labs.
