Making test batches is sort of what its all about. Our brew team is always thinking of something new for you to enjoy and
our 5 Barrel Fermentation tanks is perfect for testing recipes and delivering new beers for you to try. These beers only show up in our taproom on one of our 12 tap lines and are usually only around for a couple of weeks. It’s a great reason to stop in and try something different, and always makes sure every visit to Billsburg is unique.

 

Planet 4 Red Ale

Monthly

Named after the 4th Planet, due to its beautiful Red-Copper color. The Red Ale’s aroma sets the tone with a huge malt scent combined alongside stone fruit. A medium body brings back the malt heavy flavor and traces of pine. A nice tan head laces the glass with a slight dry finish.

Cribbage In The Square (Pilsner)

July - August

After getting off the train in Heidelberg during Oktoberfest, our Head Brewer and his wife order a pilsner and grabbed a game of cribbage. Becoming one of his favorite styles, he decided to brew fresh batches here in the states. The color is a perfect pale-yellow with a pearl white head. Followed up by a slight toasted cracker aroma, quickly displaced by grassy notes. With a low herbal hop flavor, crisp body, and a dry finish it will have you quenching for more! PROST!

Special K (Kölsch)

September - November

Special K(-inda) beer is a bright ale with a light character and a crisp, dry finish. This easy drinking ale will win over even people who think they don’t like craft beer. The flavor and complexity can satisfy the dedicated craft beer connoisseur.  Enjoy after a long day at work, coming off your boat, or mowing the lawn.
