Our Beers

Armadillo Ale Works will give Denton, TX a brewery that’s as unique as the city is. Our beers are inspired by the history, culture, and most importantly, the people of Denton.

Quakertown Stout

Quakertown Stout is a slamming concoction of dark roasted malts, oats, and the most robust maple syrup we could get our hands on. We brew it to commemorate the original Quakertown community (1875-1922) and the enriching music festivals and community events that are held in Quakertown Park today.

9.22% ABV, 50 IBU

Suggested Food Pairings:

  • BBQ
  • Bacon
  • Steak
  • Smoked Gouda
  • Chocolate Cake

What does it taste like?
This full bodied brew comes fully loaded with flavors of coffee, chocolate, roasted nuts, and oats.

What’s in it?
Lightly toasted two-row barley malt makes up the bulk of our grain bill. We add a little brown malted barley for a nice toasty flavor. A mix of roasted barley and Blackprinz barley adds coffee and chocolate flavors and it’s what makes the stout dark in color. Some malted wheat helps bulk up the mouthfeel of the beer and a bunch of oats adds some oat flavor and makes the beer rich and creamy. We finish it off with a touch of robust maple syrup which, after fermentation, adds a nice nutty characteristic. We hop it with some bitter Columbus hops to help balance out all the malty sweetness and we ferment this beer with a yeast that showcases the flavors from the grain.

What does it come in?
Quakertown is available on draft and 22oz bottles.

Greenbelt Farmhouse Ale

We tip our caps to Texas’ perpetual Summer with this American-Belgian-Weizen hybrid. Named for the Greenbelt Trail in Northeast Denton, crisp citrus flavors shine bright in this light-golden brew; a refreshing match for whatever trail you’re on.

5.2% ABV, 20 IBU

Suggested Food Pairings:

  • Mild goat cheese
  • Spicy Thai cuisine
  • Left-over cold fried chicken
  • Fresh berries

What does it taste like?
This easy-drinking unfiltered wheat beer has flavors of honey, citrus fruits, pineapple, & coriander along with some earthy and peppery notes.

What’s in it?
We use a lot of malted wheat and two-row barley make up the base of this beer which creates a rich, slightly sweet, and full bodied brew. We add a pinch of honey malt and, even though there’s no honey in it, it adds a little honey flavor and helps create a golden color. We hop it with Cascade and Santiam hops for their citrus, herbal, and peppery flavors and spice it with coriander and grapefruit peel (which adds flavors of coriander and grapefruit of course!). We use a beast of a yeast to ferment this beer. It’s a high attenuating and low flocculating yeast. What does this mean? It means it eats A LOT of the sugars and converts them into alcohol and CO2 but it doesn’t like to leave after it’s done, resulting in a glorious golden haze. We could filter it all out, but we don’t mind the yeast hanging around because it adds a lot of great citrusy and spicy flavors to the beer (and who doesn’t love more flavor?).

What does it come in?
Greenbelt can be found in 6-packs of cans and on draft.

What does it taste like?
Looks can be deceiving with this golden brew. It’s full bodied, with a sweet and slick mouthfeel, and it surprises your senses with aromas and flavors of dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, vanilla, honey, and a hint of caramel.

What’s in it?
A large amount of standard two-row malted barley makes up the foundation of this beer. With brunch as our inspiration, we add flaked barley and oats, which add grainy characteristics and aid in a hearty mouthfeel and head retention. A hint of honey and caramel malts lend a mild sweetness of honey and caramel flavors. To create some residual sweetness in the beer we add lactose (milk sugar), which the yeast is unable to ferment. Of course no brunch would be complete without some maple syrup. We use the richest and most unrefined maple syrup from Ben’s Sugar Shack in New Hampshire to lend earthy and nutty flavors to the beer. To balance the malty-sweet-goodness, we use a large amount of Northern Brewer hops and we ferment this beer with a yeast that showcases the flavors from the grain and sugars. In order to get stout-like flavors into this beer without adding too much dark coloring, we utilize roasted cacao nibs, vanilla, and coffee. The cacao nibs lend flavors of dark chocolate and roasted flavors and the vanilla adds some vanilla flavor (go figure!). The coffee we use is a dark-roasted Honduras Las Capucas from Bookish Coffee Roasters right here in Denton, TX. This spectacular coffee has honeysuckle and maple aromas, the acidity of green apples, and earthy flavors of roasted chocolate.

What does it come in?
This limited release beer will be released on draft in late March 2014.
