Weiss-Blau – Bavarian-style Weissbier

Our take on a classic, this is a Bavarian-style unfiltered wheat beer. Light golden in color, hazy and with a snow white crown of foam, our Weissbier (“white beer” in German) has an inviting fruity/ spicy aroma reminiscent of banana, citrus and clove. Brewed with generous amounts of wheat and imported Munich malt, the flavor is sweet and rounded yet refreshing and highly drinkable.   1.050 OG   14 IBUs   5.5% abv

Why the Name? The colors of the Bavarian flag are checkered white and blue, or “weiss und blau” in German.

Scaredy Cat – Oatmeal Stout

Dark beer lovers rejoice! Our pitch black stout is packed with the rich malt flavors of chocolate, caramel, molasses and espresso and is brewed with a large portion of rolled oats for a well-rounded, “chewy” mouthfeel. Hearty and robust, Scaredy Cat is no scrawny little kitty. Scaredy Cat is great with our beer-battered fish and chips or our rich and delicious brownie sundae!   1.065 OG     30 IBUs     6.0% abv Named “Best of the Midwest” Regional Champion- stout category!  USBTC winter 2010/ 2011 judging.

Dedication2-01

Dedication – Abbey Dubbel

Woodshed – Oaked India Pale Ale

Woodshed is a unique IPA experience- something of a hybrid British IPA/ American IPA, brewed with 2 types of oak chips for a truly distinctive flavor.  English First Gold and Fuggles hops lend fruity and woodsy notes to the aroma, as well as a restrained bitterness, and an unmistakeable yet subdued oaky essence winds its way throughout this beer’s character.  Imagine a hearty, heavily-hopped ale riding in an oak barrel on a tall ship to India 150 years ago.   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…

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

Mach Schnell! - Pilsner

Featuring bready European malts and spicy/oral continental noble hops, this German-style pilsner is a crisp, refreshing, true lager with plenty of Old World charm. Fizzy yellow beer? Jawohl!   1.049 OG   32 IBUs   5.5% abv

Square Pig - Hop-heavy Golden Rye Ale

How do you fit a square peg into a round hole? Our hop-heavy golden rye ale thumbs its piggy nose at style guidelines. It boasts a lavish Pacific Northwest hop bouquet of nectarine, grapefruit and wood, and a lopsided bitterness accented by spicy, rustic rye malts. Dry, crisp and unabashedly hoppy, who wouldn’t love a Square Pig?   1.054 OG   64 IBUs   5.9% abv

Brandy Barrel Dedication - Barrel-aged Strong Ale

Rich toffee and candied raisins, burgundy, charred vanilla & brandied oak… suggestions of tart cherry, clove & cocoa. Aged in Yahara Bay brandy barrels, our Belgian-inspired ‘Dedication’ seems to have found the perfect medium to express itself . Rarely does a barrel-aged strong ale so elegantly transcend the sum of its parts.   ~10.7% abv

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 version of this traditional Belgian-style farmhouse ale was brewed with hibiscus petals. Light, oral and and bright pink, Hibiscus Saison has a crisp, dry finish with a champagne quality that plays on the tongue.
1.054 OG   22 IBUs   6.3% abv

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.

Berliner Geist – Berliner Weisse

The spirit of old Berlin lives on in our tart, tangy and refreshing Berliner Weisse. Enjoy this light-bodied, effervescent and quenching sour ale on its own, or sweeten the deal with a ‘Schuss’ of traditional raspberry or woodruff syrup.   1.048 OG   6 IBUs   4.7% abv

Velouria - Belgian-inspired Fruited Tart 

Our deliciously peachy, Belgian-inspired fruited tart is the perfect antidote to the summer doldrums, with a tempting fresh peach aroma and a juicy sweet-sour flavor, tempered by a mildly peppery-spice character and dry, quenching finish. Cheers to summer!   1.060 OG   9 IBU’s   6.1% 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

Dunkelweiss - Dark Wheat Ale

Tall, dark and delicious wheat ale with enticing aromas of banana, fresh bread, and clove, and a creamy, spritzy texture similar to its golden Weissbier cousin. Overtones of chocolate and roasted malt add complexity for a tasting experience that evolves gracefully sip by sip.   1.052 OG 16 IBUs 5.6% abv

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!
