Pretzel City Amber

Style:American Amber Ale
Craft brewing is all about celebrating tradition and heritage, and getting to have fun while doing so. Our amber ale is loaded up with melanoidin and caramel malts that make the brewery smell like a bakery at sunrise. That’s why we thought it would be fun to actually throw locally made pretzels right into the mash tun!
ABV:5.1% IBU:30

5 Blend Rye Saison

Style: Rye Saison
A traditionally seasonal ale delicious enough to brew all year long. This Franco - Belgian style beer is fermented unusually warm to produce endless amounts of flavor including pineapple, bubblegum, and white peppercorn. A blend of five different yeast strains and a large addition of rye malt leaves this beer earthy, and higher in alcohol.
ABV: 7.0% IBU: 18

No Promises Pale Ale

Style: Extra Pale Ale
Our favorite beer is the one we’ve never had before! So we’re ready if you are, to take an adventure and explore the world of Humulus Lupulus, Hops. Expect the unexpected, every batch of No Promises will be hopped with several different hop varieties everytime we make it. Help us navigate through forests of new experimental hops!
ABV: 6.3% IBU:

Hella Good – Honey Helles

Style: Kolsch Hybrid
Who said light beer can’t have bold flavor? Brewed with both Gambrinus honey malt and orange blossom honey, this beer leads with a sweet graham cracker aroma but has a crisp dry finish! This Köln-Style blonde beer is an ale lager hybrid and is cold conditioned to perfection in the German tradition. Prost!
ABV: 4.2% IBU: 15

NITRO Live Free Porter

Style: English Black Ale
As dark as an English tavern booth, this ale is brewed for session drinking with your mates! Have a pint or three and enjoy the depth of this rich yet extremely drinkable porter. Now on nitro, the silky malt body dances between deeply kilned barley and flaked oats for an insanely smooth finish. Live freely and remember where you came from.
ABV: 4.1% IBU: 27

Jelly Donut

Style: German Berliner Weisse - Seasonal
This crisp, light, and refreshingly tart German ale was one of Napoleon's favorite beverages. "Champagne of the North" is what he called it, as the ale is bright and tart in white wine character. Our version is infused with a heavy does of pureed tart cherries and blueberries for an added summertime freshness! Prost!
ABV: 3.8% IBU: 8

Red Oktober

Style: Seasonal
Highly anticipated but worth the wait, this cold fermented lager is incredibly smooth with complex malt character. Highly kilned German malts build a roasty body with a small touch of cherrywood smoked barely to finish it off the aroma.
ABV: 6.3% IBU: 24

Wintergreen IPA

Style: Seasonal
The holidays are all about giving! This special brew is all about taking! We take the last fresh spruce tips of the season from a very special tree, and boil them in with an insane amount of pine forward hop varieties. All well balanced on a malt backbone, this one of a kind IPA will serve well as a gift, or completely acceptable if you want it just for yourself! Bottles available to go!
ABV: 7.6% IBU: 92
