Limited, rare and delicious.


  • 20th Anniversary Ale

    To celebrate 20 years of brewing we pay tribute to the beer that started it all, our original flagship, Full Moon Pale Rye Ale. Though not uncommon in the current craft market, brewing with rye was nearly unheard of in 1996. For this celebratory ale we've eliminated the crystal malts to let the spicy character of the rye shine through. Classic American hops Chinook and Cascade are blended with a new experimental variety bringing flavors of orange, citrus and pine to balance the sweet, spicy malt, and the initial bitterness of this Imperial IPA. Raise a glass and toast to our past! Cheers to the future. ABV: 9.5% IBU: 75 OG: 20

    21 Pre-Prohibition Style Lager

    After 21 years, it’s time for a righteous kegger. Sure, we’ve been drinking beer for the past 20 years, but now we’re legal! And what better way to celebrate this time-honored coming of age than by hosting an epic field party? For those who may not be able to join us in Blanco, this is our birthday gift to you—a bong-able bevvy so easy to crush, you’ll have to charge for cups to subsidize your trips to the drive-through keg barn. So, gather your friends, pick up a keg (or five), and host a celebration at your favorite watering hole. Cheers, beers, and 21 years! ABV 4.6% IBU 22 OG 10.8

  • Ghost Eye Oatmeal Stout

    A new record and a new beer bring The Sword and Real Ale Brewing Company back together for another epic release. While our first collaboration paid homage to a classic Sword track, our newest project reflects the ever-evolving body of work from both the band and the brewery. As a track, "Ghost Eye" plays in the latter half of a record marked by a pronounced progression and more dynamic sound. As a beer, "Ghost Eye" joins the ranks of our new 22oz. bomber bottles, each one a display of depth and complexity of flavor.  Ghost Eye is no exception.  Aromas of roasted grain, chocolate, and coffee are intertwined with a slightly nutty and uniquely smooth mouthfeel derived from the addition of flaked oats.  So, throw on “High Country,” grab yourself an Oatmeal Stout, and let the face melting commence. All while the Ghost Eye watches. ABV 6.5%

    19th Anniversary Ale Baltic Porter

    A relatively obscure sub-style of porter, this imposing brew honors the roots of its heritage. Like its English counterparts, it is malt forward with the focus on dark malt character. Our porter is a heartier brew like the inspirational beers of the Baltic region. Available for a limited time in 22-oz. bombers and on draught where you can find it. ABV 7.7% IBU 30 OG 18

  • Blakkr Imperial Black Ale

    BLAKKR Imperial Black Ale is the spawn of the long awaited collaboration between Surly, Three Floyds and Real Ale Brewing Company. Subtle dark malt and toffee character quickly yields to the citrus and tropical notes provided by a staggering amount of hops. Bonded by their love of brewing and love of metal, this unholy trinity of brewers has unleashed a crushing, black as night double IPA. Hail the mighty BLAKKR!

    SWORD Iron Swan Ale

    This beer showcases the rich toffee flavors of English crystal malt, earthy and spicy English hop character, and a subtle fruitiness from our house ale yeast. Brewed with Austin’s own, The Sword. (does not contain wheat)
