Dedication – Abbey Dubbel

Winner of the gold medal at the 2016 Best of Craft Beer Awards!

Woodshed – Oaked India Pale Ale

Who’d have thought a hybrid English/American oaked IPA would become our flagship & best selling beer? Walking the line between tradition and invention, inviting oral/citrus hop aromas and vanillin-rich French oak notes accent this perfectly balanced, distinctive India pale ale.  1.062 OG   65 IBUs    6.5% abv

Why the Name? The term “woodshed” has several meanings.  In the world of music and the arts, to “woodshed” means to practice intensively in private, to hone your skills and perfect your style before taking your talent into the public spotlight. On the other hand, to be “taken to the woodshed” means, well, another thing entirely…

Bee’s Knees – Honey Cream Ale

The humble cream ale has a history intertwined with the American working-class. We give ours a rural twist by brewing with oats, flaked maize, and Wisconsin clover honey. Mildly sweet, light and refreshing, and with a touch of honey in the finish- the perfect way to toast a busy day!  1.049 OG   16 IBUs   5.0% abv

Hibiscus Saison – Belgian-style Farmhouse Ale w/ Hibiscus

Inspired by the spice markets of Egypt, our re-invention of a traditional Belgian- style farmhouse ale is brewed with hibiscus flower petals. Mildly tart and bright pink, with fruity sugestions of berries and cherry, Hibiscus Saison finishes dry, crisp and champagne-like.
1.054 OG   22 IBUs   6.3% abv

Toy Boat, Toy Boat – Double IPA

Hops take the spotlight in this bold and assertive double IPA, from luscious &enticing aromas through a brisk bitterness that lingers like a daydream.  1.078 OG  95 IBUs  8.3% abv

Why the name? Toy Boat- a tongue twister!

 Maximilian (Max) – Stout

Originally brewed by English brewers in the late 1800’s for export to the royal court of the Russian Empire, imperial stouts were once the private beverage of the czars. Very dark, with big roast and dark malt flavors, significantly hopped for balance against a massively chewy full body, and with a warming strength that can melt away the chills of a harsh northern winter…these are the trademarks of an imperial stout.   1.090 OG   75 IBUs   9.2% abv

Why the name? Yes, it’s a play on words- so much malt was used in brewing this beer that our mash tun (where crushed grains and brewing water come together in the brewing process) was literally full to the brim…maxed out! Incidentally, there wasn’t an actual “Emperor Maximilian” in the lineage of Russian royalty, but there was a famous satirical work in 19th century Russian folk theater called “Emperor Maximilian”. Likewise, no real czars will be enjoying “Max Stout”, but we’d be honored if actors, playwrights and fans of the theater might draw inspiration from a few sips.

Mach Schnell! – Pilsner

Crafted with Wisconsin-grown 6-row barley and locally grown German- pedigree hops, this crisp & classic true lager honors Old World tradition with local bounty. The American craft pilsner with a German accent!  1.052 OG   32 IBUs   5.5% abv

Rochambeau – Belgian-style Pale Ale

Brewed with highest quality imported malts and an authentic Trappist yeast, our Belgian pale is pure old-world class in a glass. But the special twist is in the hops- our brewmaster is secretly enamored with Sorachi Ace hops, a relatively recent Czech/ English hybrid developed in Japan. These are featured throughout Rochambeau, from bittering to flavor hopping additions during the brew, and even as a post-fermentation dry hop. Their uniquely lemony, powdery nuances accent this beer in all stages of the tasting experience, but work particular magic alongside the fruity esters of the Belgian yeast aromas. Like a beautiful, yet challenging piece of music, it may take more than one listen (sip) to realize an indispensable new favorite!   1.052 OG   30 IBUs   5.8% abv

Why the name?  Rock, paper, scissors…

Dot Dot Common – ‘California Common’ Amber Lager

This throwback ‘California Common’ amber lager combines bready caramel malts and rustic, grassy Northern Brewer hops. Otherwise known as ‘steam beer’, this archaic American style had its heyday in gold-rush era San Francisco.    1.055 OG    31 IBUs    5.6% abv

Hoppity Jones – India Pale Lager

Here’s a little ditty not brewed since 2012, our IPL (India Pale Lager) with Mosaic, Amarillo and Simcoe hops. Cool & patient lagering yields a clean, neutral finish, and allows the grapefruit, resinous & tropical hops to really sing.    1.070 OG   68 IBUs   7.3% abv

El Scorcho – Red Ale with Roasted Chilies

A hunka hunka burnin’ love… We fire roasted fresh serrano & poblano chilies to give this malty red ale a distinctive yet balanced pepper flavor & mildly simmering heat.   1.064 OG    45 IBUs    6.6% abv

Whippoorwill – Belgian-style Wit

Our breezy, thirst-quenching Belgian-style Witbier is made with portions of wheat and oats, and lightly infused with real orange peel and spice, for a taste as soft as fluffy clouds on a summer day!     1.049 OG   11 IBUs   5.2% abv

Summer Sahti – Farmhouse-style Ale

Sahti is an uncommon, ancient farmhouse style ale from Finland, which forges the flavorful elements of rye and juniper into a rustic and satisfying harmony. Gin-like evergreen and juicy berry flavors meld with hardy, spicy rye malt, in a distinctive yet refreshing historically-inspired ale.  1.056 OG   8 IBUs   5.4% abv

Jinja Ninja – Spiced Double Witbier

Never heard of a spelt-based, ginger-laced amber double witbier?! (That’s because we just made it up.) Chock full of ancient grain wisdom and armed with a zesty fresh ginger kick, Jinja Ninja is here to vanquish the foe- beer boredom!   1.067 OG   10 IBUs   7.3% abv

Rhine Heights – Altbier

Our classic Düsseldorf-style altbier is a throwback German amber ale, with a refined noble hop presence and a smooth mellow character.   1.057 OG   42 IBUs   5.6% abv

Received the silver medal in the 2012 World Beer Cup®  – German-style Brown Ale category!  World Beer Cup® 2012 Winners List

ThingamaJuicy – Juicy Farmhouse IPA

Is it an IPA? Is it a saison? Brisk hop and citrus peel notes accent this quenching Juicy Farmhouse IPA, our new summer crush.   1.055 OG   48 IBUs   6.3% abv

Bouquet Pink IPA 2017

Our wildly popular floral IPA is back & better than ever! Citra and Nelson hops lend medium bitterness and distinctive tropical/citrus hop aromas, yet 6 types of edible flowers steal the show. Brewed with lavender, rose hips, chamomile, meadowsweet, elder flower, & hibiscus, this truly is a ‘bouquet’ in a glass. 1.068 OG   70 IBUs   7.0% abv

With $1 per pint sold donated to local breast cancer charities, it’s a great taste for a great cause!

Cask-conditioned real ale – Always two on tap with new selections rotating in frequently

The modern industrial age has brought many improvements to our modern lives, including some that have altered our perception of beer and what it could and should be. Ice-cold refrigeration and unnatural forced carbonation have helped to promote flavorless fizzy (yet indefinitely stable) beers worldwide. But what of the time-honored methods of yesteryear? Unpasteurized, unfiltered and all-natural real ales hearken back to the advent of brewing and civilization itself. Regardless of style, these beers undergo a second fermentation in the cask, resulting in natural carbonation, and are served hand-pulled through “beer engines” at traditional cellar temperature (50-60F). The enhanced aroma and flavor will make a believer out of you, too! Purists will tell you, this is the only way to experience “real ale”…alive and on cask!
