Our Story

We're Merlin U Ward and Mimi Ortega and Wartega is our brainchild. We're a husband and wife team brewing beers with ancient ale ingredients. Ales were once brewed with all sorts of ingredients from the regions around the brewers that made them. The basis for Wartega beers is combining the culinary, historical and cultural ingredients for beers with uniquely bold flavor!

We hold Wartega beers to two key rules: The beer must be balanced, and the beer must be interesting. Thus, our beers are brewed with fruit, spices and herbs, while still respecting beer making fundamentals–balance and drinkability.

PARASOL

Amber Ale, 6.0%

This malty ale is brewed with citrus hops and a portion of hibiscus. It exhibits a red hue a tangy finish!

We wanted to create a nice, full flavor ale that was still an easy drinker. We use hibiscus similarly to how it is used in the Caribbean to make sorrel drink. It's boiled for the duration, added with the late hops, and as a dry hop. It captures the flavor, color and aroma of hibiscus. It's refreshing!

CATAWAMPUS

Cream Ale, 7.0%

Pleasantly askew. Light ale spiked with green tea leaves and nutmeg for a playfully palatable pint. The feather-light bubbles and creaminess are inclined to delight. 

This beer is designed for good drinking! We put a delicious twist on a cream ale, by including a hint of green tea, and a bit of nutmeg. The tea adds a subtle grassy note to the beer, while the nutmeg compliments the beer's sweetness and adds a touch of nutty flavor.
