Making beer is not that complicated. There are four basic ingredients: barley, hops, yeast and, of course, water.
Making good beer is not that hard. Making great beer ~ now that takes some serious craftsmanship and artistry. We were thrilled to be honored with first place in the Bier Stein's Civil War Beer Tasting for our Riptooth IPA!
Our expanding array of hand-crafted beer is brewed with tender care from the finest ingredients from around the world. We offer at least 14 distinctive house-brewed beers on tap at any given time, with seasonal and other concoctions added at the brewers' whim.
Our first beer was brewed in May 2013 and we are joyously expanding the selection. Our current brew menu includes:
Blue Pool Pils
Akim's Private Reserve
Propagator Pale Bock
Alpine Trail Pale
Lost in a Haze
Hobbit's Habit Olde Ale
Foggy Scotsman Porter
Wrought Iron Cream Stout (on nitro)
Our beer & beverage menu is available for download in pdf format.
We also feature two beer engines pouring a rotating selection of both house- and guest-brewed cask-conditioned ales for a different beer experience.
Whereas beer normally goes through a conditioning phase after the yeast has been removed, cask ales experience a secondary fermentation period on the yeast right in the cask. This results in a natural carbonation that is much less pronounced than standard beer. Cask ales are traditionally stored and served at "cellar temperature" rather than refrigerated, and are poured through beer engines that "pull" the beer instead of "pushing" it with CO2.
The result is a smooth and highly quaffable beer that brings out the subtleties, and complexity, of the hops and malt.
Growler fills are available and we have a special $8 growler fill on house brews - every weekday afternoon from 2pm to 5pm!
Every week we also feature one of our house brews as our Beer of the Week for a special price of $3.50/pint.
