Great Raft Commotion, 5.2% ABV, a hop forward American Pale Ale, has an aggressive fruity aroma with upfront hop bitterness of grapefruit and citrus. This complex but balanced dry-hopped pale ale is faintly sweet with a round and soft finish

Parish Brewing Envie, 5.5% ABV, this delicious pale ale is juicy, hazy, and crushable. A totally new-school take on an old-school American craft beer, Envie is bursting with glorious hop aromas of mango, lychee, orange, and other tropical fruits. This beer pulls of the incredible feat of having the best juicy qualities of hops but none of the harsh, bitter finish you may be used to.
Urban South Holy Roller IPA, 6.3% ABV, to every thing there is a season. A time to weep and a time to laugh. A time to plant and a time to reap. But in the Urban South, our seasons run together. Here, parishioners cycle between pew and barstool. The tippler duets with the street preacher. And last night’s carousers become today’s congregation, still dressed in their finest. Holy Roller is a big, bold IPA for all of us caught between best intentions and bad behavior. It’s for the golden moment between Saturday night sins and Sunday’s repentance. It’s for life lived in full. For every season, there is a beer. We call it Holy Roller.
Great Raft Reasonably Corrupt, 5.5% ABV, a black lager with dark and roasty malt sweetness. Don’t let the darkness fool you – this is a sweeter, fuller-bodied version of the premium lager you know and love. It has a smooth, crisp finish, with depth of color and taste.
