Crank Arm Favorites: Coalmarch Productions

Here at Crank Arm, we’re all about community! We love to hear what our customers enjoy drinking, so we decided to interview our friends at Coalmarch Productions to see what their favorite Crank Arm beers are. Check out their picks below!


Stacey Vernon:

"I like Holy Spokes because it's a little spicy! And, the Pumptrack is a great twist on seasonal pumpkin beers. My favorite one that's always on tap is the Unicycle, because they change the kind of hops every so often, so it may have a slightly different flavor. I especially love the Unicycle with Mosaic hops!"


Ryan Scotton:

"I tend to get the Reflector. It’s described as a ‘straightforward Irish red’ -- and considering that I'm usually pretty straight-forward, Irish, and quite red if I step out into the sun any longer than 15 minutes without sunscreen, I figure it's a match made in heaven. In all seriousness, it's light enough to continue drinking for awhile, but also has a pretty solid, distinct flavor so I don't really get bored with it."


Maggie Baker:

"I love ordering the Tasting Wheel so that I can try more than one.  Whether you order a flight or a glass, you've got to try the Blood Orange Hefebiken and the Holy Spokes. I love both of these beers because they contain ingredients from other local restaurants! The chocolate in Holy Spokes comes from Videri and the juice in Blood Orange Hefebiken comes from Happy + Hale."


Rachel Pratt:

"My favorite is the Reflector, because I love a good Irish Red Ale and I like the light, hoppy taste!"




Esly Nunez:

"I like the creaminess of the Low Gear brew."




Meg Parrish:

"I really enjoy the Rickshaw Rye. I like it because it pairs the bitterness of a traditional IPA but with more spice, giving it a unique flavor. I love the bitterness of IPAs and the flavors in the Rickshaw Rye are a refreshing change from the standard flavor profile!"


Lee Kennedy:

"My favorite is the Rickshaw Rye.

Breweries typically need to be successful at one (or both) of two goals to gain a significant following: come up with unique and memorable beers that are decent (like the Rogue Bacon Maple Ale) or make a classic beer really good. Crank Arm delivers on the second goal by making a super solid rye IPA with their Rickshaw. It's a solid, year-round beer that tastes exactly like it should -- no gimmicky over-spiciness or super-hoppiness or 12% ABV booziness. It's super smooth and drinkable if you're a fan of the bitter ones but is also neutral enough for those just getting into the hoppy stuff. I'm normally a ‘try everything once’ kind of beer drinker, but I find myself with a Rickshaw at least once every time I go to Crank Arm."


Teryn Means:

"It completely depends on my mood -- definitely a 50/50 split on the Rickshaw Rye and the White Wall Wit. The 7.2% IPA is my go-to after a long week, but the Whitewall is the perfect refresher no matter what the season or occasion! You really can't go wrong."



Maria Mayorga:

"My favorite is the Trail Bandit because it is YUMMY!"




Logan Roger:

"My favorite is by far and away the Reflector. It's a classic Irish Red Ale with a lot of flavor. It's the perfect choice when you're looking for something straightforward, crisp, and with just the right amount of hoppiness to it. You can never go wrong with the Reflector."


So there you have it! It looks like the Rickshaw Rye IPA and the Reflector Irish Red Ale are popular among the Coalmarch Productions team. What is your favorite Crank Arm beer?
