Shoobies were city folks who journeyed to the beach by train in the late 1800's. Their ticket included a shoe box lunch, hence the name. Since then the term is now a pet name for tourists who feed seagulls, wear socks with flip flops or just seem generally confused by the seashore. So sad. So cute. We love us some shoobies. Notes: pale gold, slightly floral, easy drinking
Wai Ola, meaning ‘water of life’ in Hawaiian, is precisely the vibe we are aiming to capture in developing this light, California style ale. This beer is meant to be easy drinking but packs a ton of summer flavor, thanks to additions of coconut water and roasted coconut flakes in multiple stages of the brewing process. Mahalo! Notes: pale ale, subtle coconut, hints of tropical and pine hops, strong coconut aroma
Richard “Mootzy” Mootz, is a native of Sussex County, DE who proudly served in WWII. After the war, he recovered stolen treasures as one of the famous Monument Men. That became his avocation in life, and he has continued to recover treasure throughout Sussex County. Much of his collection has been lovingly made into Crooked Hammock decor including the tables, bar, and wall hangings. We honor and celebrate Mootzy’s finds with our flagship pale ale. Notes: copper color, floral and citrus notes, cascade and chinook hop aromas
What better way can you make your mustache’s dreams come true than by filling it with a creamy, satisfying stout? This dark roasted brew is heavy in body and color but light in its mouthfeel, thanks to being brewed with rolled oats and lactose, which gives it an underlying sweetness. Notes: creamy mouthfeel, roasted malts, brewed with oatmeal

There are quite a few rules to surf fishing at our local state park beaches. This beer pays homage to our favorite rule…make sure you are “Actively Fishing” at all times.
