Top 5 Hoppy Pirate Beers

Ballast Point – Tongue Buckler

Ballast Point - Tongue Buckler
This Imperial Red Ale not only has a pirate on the label, but it lives up to its name. It’ll buckle your tongue with its huge hops presence. Drink this only if ye be strong of palette.

Mission Brewery – Shipwrecked Double IPA

Mission - Shipwrecked Double IPAYo ho, yo ho a pirates life fer me.. Grab the 4-pack with the Jolly Roger and enjoy this 6.8% abv brew while sitting up in the crow’s nest. The Shipwrecked DIPA packs a wallop and is great for when you’ve got nothing better to do than relax on the open seas.

 RJ Rockers – Black Perle

RJ Rockers - Black PerleThis one has been known to make Beer Soaked Guido sing tribute to Captain Jack Sparrow. This dark IPA weighs in at 9.5% and is nutty with hints of coffee.

Beer Valley – BLACK FLAG Imperial Stout

Beer Valley - Black Flag Imperial StoutThis 100 IBU imperial stout will make you forget all about that bottle of rum. 15 men on a dead man’s chest all agree, this one will make you walk the plank with its 11% abv.

Pliny the Eld-ARRR

Pliny the ElderPliny the Eld-Arrrr was the fiercest pirate ever to sail the seven seas. He perished at sea while attempting to rescue a friend from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD…

What? Wait, he wasn’t a pirate?! A Roman scientist and philosopher… You don’t say. Well, shiver me timbers, I stand corrected. I guess that means that Russian River Brewing’s “Pliny the Elder” isn’t a pirate beer after all. Deepest apologies me hearties. If you bought one, send it our way and we’ll dispose of it properly. To Davey Jones Locker!

Anchors Away!
Shiver up me timbers and me bones, I talk like a Pirate wherever I go…
