Elk River Brewing: Dunrite IPA 7.5%
Named after the man who helped make our vision come to life, this IPA has that hoppy aroma and bitterness that IPA lovers look for. Hopped with heavy doses of Columbus, Summit, Cascade and Centennial hops, then dry hopped with Citra and Amarillo hops!

Evolution Chardonnay Migration 7.2%
A Belgian-style pale ale aged in Chardonnay barrels that underwent a secondary brettanomyces fermentation. It’s a well-balanced example of what have come to be known as “wild ales,” referring to the presence of non-traditional brewer’s yeast.

Evil Twin Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break 10.5%
Imperial stout brewed with coffee, cinnamon, almonds, cocoa nibs, vanilla beans & habanero peppers.

Founders Blushing Monk 9.2%
When our love of fruit and our love of beer come together, Blushing Monk happens. Brewed with a ridiculous amount of raspberries for tart yet luscious raspberry-jam character and fermented with Belgian yeast for subtle fruit and spice esters. Think of Blushing Monk as Rubaeus’ older sibling – more intense, slightly larger and just a little bit more mature.

Graft Ciders
Phantom Carriage 6.9% A bourbon- barrel aged blueberry cider with vanilla, maple syrup and cocoa nibs.

Hoof Hearted: Slo Turbo
Imperial IPA 8.5% Brewed with New Zealand Hops

Laguintas Hazy Memory 7.7 %
We’re going a bit blurry on this nebulous release… Hazy Memory is a cloudy IPA full of oats and smooth wheatly-esque-ish-ness, packed with some of the murkiest, juiciest, turbid Loral 291, Hallertau Blanc, Galaxy, and Citra Hops. It’s a huge flavor you won’t forget!

Liquid Alchemy: Deeply Rooted 7.5%
We start with The Dark Cide(r) as a base and to that we add sarsaparilla, birch bark, and Madagascar vanilla beans. The result is an earthy, woodsy cider reminiscent of birch beer or root beer. Deeply Rooted is slightly sweetened on the back end with Michigan grown apple juice but still is not overly sweet.

Manor Hill: Rising Tides 7.7% IPA
This First Friday release features a collaboration with Garret Chambers. Rising Tide pours a hazy orange body crowned by a big white head. Heavy hop additions of Galaxy, Mosaic and Citra provide notes of orange zest, apricot and mango throughout the aromatics and flavor profile.

Maryland Beer Company: Mc – Irish Red 5%
Brewed with Pale Malt, Oats, Crystal Malts and Roasted Barley East Kent Goldings hops 20 IBU,Color 15.2 SRM dark amber.

Our ‘crushable’ 9% ABV unfiltered Wheat Double IPA, available for the first time in can cases outside the brewery. Hopped in the kettle with Apollo, Chinook, Simcoe, and Ekuanot, then dry hopped for two weeks with Simcoe and Amarillo, Dank Hill is steeped in resinous pine, tropical mango and pineapple, and bursting at the seams with notes of pithy orange and grapefruit. 

New Belgium Voodoo Ranger Liquid Paradise 7.8%
IPA Using Mosaic Incognito, Azacca and Cascade hops, Liquid Paradise boasts a mélange of tropical notes to create a delicately bitter and extremely aromatic IPA.

Prairie No Chill 5.10%
Milk stout Aged on coffee.

Triple IPA brewed w/ Idaho7, monteure, zythos, and triple dry hopped.

Reckless Ales:  Illustrious Buddha 6.0% New England IPA
The New England Hazy style of IPA takes everything a brewmaster is trained to do and throws it out of the window. Start with oats and wheat to give it velvety mouthfeel. Forget about adding hops during the boil, instead pitch them during cooldown, then some more during fermentation, then add some more afterwards! The result is a cloudy, silky, andthirst quenching beer bursting with juicy citrus flavors.

Scaldis Peche Mel 8.5%
The natural aromas of the peach extracts mingle well with the hoppy-bitterness of the Scaldis Amber. A sweet initial taste of peaches, soon developing with those characteristic Scaldis yeast flavours, all riding along on a firm body. The impression left is of a balanced fruit beer that tastes full in the mouth, gifting both palate and nose with lingering notes of peach. 

Sierra Nevada Trip in the Woods 6.4% Otra Vez Gose aged in Reposado Tequila oak barrels with lime and agave.

Sierra Nevada Trip in the Woods Tequila Otra Vez 6.4%
We got our hands on some Reposado Tequila oak barrels and then aged our new Otra Vez Gose with Lime and Agave. This Trip in the Woods starts out tart yet juicy, with hints of lime. For the finish? The unmistakable silkines of a classic Reposado.

Valhalla Brewing: Chocolate Porter 6.5%
