  • Like the digits suggest, it's a beer that's densely populated with flavor and loaded with character. We don't filter it, so none of its life and soul is stripped away. The first thing you notice is the hazy, cloudy appearance. That's how you know it's unfiltered. What hits you next is the spicy aroma of Cascade hops, followed by the crispy, fruity ale flavor delivered in a smooth, creamy body, the result of blending barley malt with torrified wheat. 4.2% ABV.

  • Brewed in honor of the Harvest season, this copper colored ESB is made with Cascade hops from Elk Mountain Farm and the rich, hearty malts. A fruity American hop aroma and a toasty English malt character make our Autumn Experimental Ale an extra special bitter worthy of your devotion. 5.7% ABV.

    Our India Pale Ale recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result is a hop lover's dream with a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, and long hop finish. 5.9% ABV.

  • Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in cabernet barrels with blackberries, Juliet is a tart, fruity, complex ale. Notes of wood, tannin, dark fruit and spice make Juliet an ideal beer to suggest to Pinot Noir enthusiasts and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian sour ales. 6.7% ABV.

  • You might think this is a Russian style girly beer (a little Nabokov for you), but instead it is a very sophisticated Raspberry Belgian Ale. Fermented with brettanomyces (the little guys who give us that tart zing) and fresh raspberries, this brew is bright yet deep with spices and edges of the fruits natural tart quality to give it a white wine kind of finish. 7% ABV.

  • A sour brown kriek made with Michigan sour cherries aged in oak barrels for over 2 years with a roselare yeast culture. 6.5% ABV.

  • Matilda is made with a rare yeast that suggests a fruity and spicy flavor. There is complex maltiness balanced with a profuse amount of hops. 7% ABV.

Each batch of our Oktoberfest is cold lagered ensuring optimal enjoyment in the finest old-world tradition.  5.8% ABV.

  • Fermented with wild yeasts and aged in wine barrels with orange peel, Sofie is a tart, dry, sparkling ale. A subtle, spicy white pepper note, a hint of citrus from the orange peel and a creamy vanilla finish make Sofie an intriguing choice for Champagne drinkers and beer drinkers who are fond of Belgian Saisons. 6.5% ABV.
