Dear Brewmaster,

I love your Jackpot Porter immensely, any chance that you’ll be bottling this soon?

Sacramento, CA


Hey Mark, 

I love your taste in beer Mark. Jackpot Porter is smooth, rich, and delicious. Unfortunately, right now we don’t have any immediate plans to get this brew bottled. That may change in the future though. We’ll announce it right here in Unfiltered when that day comes.

Come down as we celebrate International Gruit Day on February 1st with a special beer - Great Basin Tribute Gruit. It’s a dark brown ale paying homage to the original malt beverages enjoyed for much of history. Our gruit is brewed with a combination of three traditional gruit herbs: yarrow, sweet gale, and mugwort. We added heather tips and lemongrass to give this brew a unique profile. Don’t let the absence of hops deter you from trying something new, or old depending on how you look at it.
6.5% ABV • 31 SRM

It’s a one-of-a-kind experience,
and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
