Description 

N10 commemorates ten wild and wondrous years of independent brewing in Eugene, Oregon. Crafted with Imperial Stout, Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, two Imperial IPAs and Barleywine, these five heavy-hitting beers collide to celebrate one unforgettable decade. Big and flavorful, our N10 blend offers a striking hop intensity followed by a rich backbone of caramel and roasted malt. Enjoy now or save for later, this beer is crafted to change over time in the most delicious way.

Imperial Stout, 50% of final blend
Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, 10% of final blend
Inspired by our past and celebrating our future, these Imperial Stouts feature a rich complexity paired with a sizeable hop profile, giving the final blend deep, roasted notes that better with age.

Imperial Total Domination IPA, 12.5% of final blend
Imperial Maiden the Shade IPA, 12.5% of final blend
Our history of crafting highly-hopped beers began on day one. N10 incorporates two Imperial versions of our cornerstone IPAs, Total Domination and Maiden the Shade, offering a big, citrus and floral hop hit.

Critical Hit Barleywine, 15% of final blend
A nod to our nerdier side, Critical Hit Barleywine possesses an impressive level of port-like characteristics. As it ages, the caramel flavors and bitterness intensify to create a complex finish.
