Our brewery is on display everyday for our customers providing a direct connection to the process and creating a unique space to enjoy a some food and a pint.
Some of our beers have already become authentic classics with our customers. Our Year-Round Beers are in continual production and you can always find them on tap at BlackLab. Now you only need to decide which one is your favorite!

Claudia is the star of the BlackLab. With intense citrus and tropical fruit aromas like mango and papaya, Claudia is very refreshing and has a perfect balance of sweetness, acidity and bitterness. Barcelona's IPA!
El Cuñado is another member of the BlackLab IPA family. This rye IPA owes its beautiful red/amber color and malty flavor to the rye malt. The hop aroma and flavor conjure memories of a forest morning, with pine, eucalyptus, flowers and red fruits.

Terraplane and autumn in Barcelona are a perfect match. The flavors of toasted coffee and caramel in this lighter bodied porter, caress your palate with a warm embrace and help you relax after the madness of the summer.
If a brown ale and a coffee had a kid, the gorgeous offspring would be our beer Good Morning. A creamy body with a malt forward profile and dash of coffee, this beer is a combination of flavors that will make you say yes to beer for breakfast.
Fifty-Fifty is light and drinkable. A touch citrusy and a touch spicy from the coriander seeds, it is a perfect combination to quench your thirst. The medium body is thanks to the wheat malt which helps to balance the citric touch.
Black Mirror is a straight forward dry stout that reflects its black soul. With aromas of toasted chocolate, black olives and roasted coffee, a well defined malty taste, and a high level of drinkability due to the very dry body.
Marlow is a beer for nostalgics. English in style, this extra special bitter has a distinct malty flavor mixed with hints of English yeast. Aromas of toasted malt and fruits round out this well balanced beer.
La Debutante is an elegant beer. Aromas of lychee and pine, and a flavor that is crunchy and light. The wheat malt is present and also a light acidity. A beer that is easy to drink with a body that is bubbly, young and fresh.
Carbón Negro is a thick, full and rich spiced imperial stout. An explosion of complex flavors as the traditional Christmas spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla, blend with the more exotic additions of ginger and lemon grass.
Chop-Chop owes its name to a cook at BlackLab. It is an aromatic beer with hints of citrus, flowers and herbs. Medium bodied, thanks to a small percentage of oats, with a sweet touch of cereals and a dry finish.
Japanese Tea is an IPA made with the Japanese hop Sorachi. Sorachi lends its dominant flavor and aroma in the form of jasmine tea and lemon/orange peel, with a touch of peach sweetness. Light colored, dry, mildly bitter and easy to drink.
PEG & AWL
Peg & Awl is the big sister of Claudia. Potent in fruity aroma, bitterness, alcohol content and malty flavor. Everything is doubled in this beer, and you will thank us for it.
Manor Farm is a country beer, and its flavors and aromas are reminiscent of rural summer days. A round body that is well influenced by the yeast selection, with a slight acidity and fruitiness to add a touch of excitement to your relaxing afternoon on the farm.
El Importador was one of the first beers served at BlackLab. This amber rye is a malty, caramelly delight with a resinous hop character to balance the sweetness of the malt. A beautiful game between two of the main ingredients used in beer.
SERIES X BEER
Experimentation is the heart and soul of BlackLab beer. With our small batch program, we test new ingredients, re-touch old recipes and experiment with brewing processes and procedures. Some Series X beers even graduate to seasonal or year-round offerings. They are always limited edition and very small quantity, so get them while you can!
