YOu've been served.

At Legal Draft, we believe it starts with the beer. It should be world-class, full of flavor, and consistently satisfying. Our beer is brewed with the best ingredients and state-of-the-art equipment by our Brewmaster. We'd love to serve you a pint in our taproom, in a local pub, or in a six-pack from a store near you.

in the Chambers:

Bock Trial

7.0% ABV
A classic Doppelbock, brewed with 100% Munich Malt for a dark copper color and a caramel note on the palate. We add Mosaic hops, then lager cold for weeks to bring it to full maturity. Smooth and refreshing, it's the perfect lager to welcome Spring. Spring 2020 Seasonal.

impeachment IPA

6.2% ABV |  56 IBU
Another definition: to question the truthfulness of a testifying witness. When Texas peaches meet premium malt and hops in great craft IPA, it’s totally credible. Spring 2020 Seasonal Release.

Presumed innocent IPA

An approachable American IPA, with a slight haze to its dark gold body and a bright citrus aroma from Cascade hops. 


5.2% ABV  
Watermelon infused Hung Jury Hefeweizen. Available in cans to-go for a limited time.

exhibit M

10.8% ABV  
Exhibit M Imperial Stout, to celebrate our 1000th brew. We used loads of specialty malts to create a rich, smooth milk stout. Dark chocolate and undertones of vanilla are predominant on the nose, and the soft, rounded mouthfeel transitions to mocha and praline with a warming finish.

(Under Oath Series)

7.3% ABV
German-style Sauerbier made with acidulated malt and special yeast, aged on red wine barrels with tart cherries for a dry, crisp mouthfeel and flavor. This one won’t do you wrong! Only available while supplies last.

2018 Original State Fair Brew. Lemon Basil Shandy. Light and refreshing with an herbal note that is both interestingly present and cooperatively complimentary.

Holland Porter

Special release – Staff Series, Kelley
5.6% ABV  |  30 IBU
It’s a surprising and complex expression of a classic porter, with rye malt adding a tangy edge to the usual dark smoothness of the style. It’s easy-drinking, layered, and satisfying at the same time.

barrel aged Holland Porter

8.2% ABV  |  40 IBU
We took the Holland Porter and aged it in bourbon barrels for two months. It's still easy drinking, layered and smooth so you can enjoy this porter any time of year. 

High court imperial amber

December 2017 – Limited release
7.1% ABV
A rich, malty, Imperial Amber Lager, with only a hint of hops. It's lagered cold for two months to achieve a smooth, satisfying feel and finish.

Exhibit C IPA

Winter 2017 – Limited Release.
10% ABV  |  100 IBU
Exhibit C is a nod to our one hundredth brew. We used roughly 3 times the malt of our Presumed Innocent IPA, and dry hopped the beer to add as much aroma as we could squeeze out of the Centennial hops. The result is exquisitely rich, but more balanced and much less bitter than most will expect. 

Barrel Aged witness protection

October 2017 – Limited release
7.0% ABV  |  25 IBU
What do you do with your most important person in Witness Protection?  You keep them in hiding, of course.  We’ve stored a nice supply of ours in bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill and Elijah Craig for four months before release. The bourbon nose is prominent but not overpowering, complementing the coffee and vanilla notes.  The mouthfeel is soft and rounded, with toasted, earthy flavors and an easy finish. Still, we can’t say who it really is.

Trial of Jimmy Maibock
(Under Oath Series)

8.3% ABV  
It's our smooth Bock Trial aged on whiskey barrels. After 8 months in the barrels, we added some fresh bourbon chips for a bit of an extra kick.

Gose Scot-Free

Legal Blonde Lager

4.8% ABV  |  18 IBU  
A Munich Lager made with fine malt and superior hops, fermented cold and lagered for a clear, straw-colored body and smooth, refreshing drinkability.

Clear proof seltzer

5% ABV  
Clear Proof Seltzer Series. First on tap is cherry limeade. This seltzer has a light and bubbly mouth feel with the perfect amount of cherry and lime for a tasty and clean finish.

Barley Legal

9.6% ABV  |  40 IBU
Chocolate and crystal malts give a rich flavor of coffee and dark chocolate to this barley wine. The mouthfeel is smooth and the finish renders a tiny hint of smoke and a mild bitterness from the roast.

witness protection

7.7% ABV  |  25 IBU
Not quite stout, not really porter, certainly not another brown ale. What to call it? Maybe it’s best we put it in Witness Protection for its own good. Smooth mouthfeel and dark roasted malts add to a nose of mocha. The finish is mild, with just a hint of sweetness. All good, but with Witness Protection, there’s so much more to the story.

Hard Evidence

4.0% ABV
Our house-made Moot Beer with a lil somethin' special.

Resilience IPA (Sierra Nevada)

6.8% ABV  |  65 IBU

Holiday party

5.7% ABV
We aged our Legal Holiday ale in bourbon barrels from Heaven Hill for four months. Sweet caramel and vanilla notes hop on board with the spices brewed into this winter warmer to make a rich and complex treat. 

Rye Fought the Law

4.5% ABV  |  20 IBU
A classic Roggenbier with a hazy body and a light orange hue. Subtly sweet notes on the nose, with a delightful tanginess and soft, round mouthfeel. Prosit!!

Black Letter Law Pilsner

4.7% ABV
There’s no disputing this traditional Schwarzbier. With a dark body and creamy brown head, it delivers surprisingly light and smooth drinkability in every glass. It’s the answer you’re looking for! Seasonal Released January 2018.

Lawful Good

October 2017 – Limited release for NTXBW
7.65% ABV  |  75 IBU
Lawful Good shows a hazy golden amber body. On the nose, grapefruit and stone fruit dominate, with subtle presence of grass and earth. There’s a rounded mouthfeel, with good malt structure behind a hop bite that yields quickly to citrus and herbal notes. The finish is clean and without tannins.

Strawberry WHeatness

September 2017 – Craft Beer of the State Fair
5.0% ABV
Strawberry Wheatness is a wheat ale made with strawberry puree. The nose is bright and intense strawberry, while the fruit flavor is more muted in the mouth. The bready taste from the wheat malt and a touch of vanilla make the whole experience similar to having a waffle with strawberry and cream on top.

Treble Trouble

August 2017 – Limited release
8.65% ABV  |  30 IBU
A traditional Belgian Tripel Ale, with low hop aroma and medium bitterness. Made from Belgian Pilsner malt and Columbus and Cascade hops, it has a low malt sweetness and round mouthfeel. Aromas range from mild spice to orange and banana.
