Lake Austin Ales are tropical juice bombs full of positive waves and golden haze. We add pound after pound of juicy hops to every batch to make them refreshing, luscious and eminently crushable. This is Super Premium Craft that’s fresh enough to satisfy the thrillseeker and chillseeker in everyone. Hop on board and grab a taste.
A juiced-up IPA that will float your boat.
Our Juicy IPA is double dry hopped to the limit with the highest-rated tropical hop blends. It’s big on fresh- squeezed pineapple and mango notes. This is high quality haze free from the suspended yeast and spent hops that cause astringent aftertaste. That makes our flagship beer high on flavor, low on bitterness, and ready to crush any thirst.
A double dose of primo haze.
Our Juicy Double IPA is double dry hopped with bushels of citrus hop blends and lupulin powder. It pushes flavor to the limit with big fresh-squeezed grapefruit and Meyer lemon notes. It’s an easy to drink Double with enough intensity to satisfy any craft beer craving.
A Blonde Ale that’s more fun in the sun.
Our Juicy Blonde Ale is hitting the scene just as the days start to get longer and the sun starts to climb higher. We double dry hop each batch with excessive quantities of premium tropical hop blends until it’s packed with juicy notes of pineapple and stone fruit. It’s big on flavor, low on bitterness, and as refreshing as a cool lake breeze on a Texas summer day.
