Currently On Tap

  • Breakfast at Chico’s

    Glimpses of milk chocolate and coffee also emerge for a decidedly robust, creamy brew for when the sun’s rising or making way for evening antics.

    Mandatory ESB

    A fleeting bitterness and forgiving ABV make Mandatory a must for summer’s finale.

    Kellerweis®

    A hazy wheat ale—untamed, unfiltered and unafraid. With a full, fruity aroma and notes of spicy clove and banana bread, Kellerweis is truly a unique brew.

    Barrel-Aged Ovila Saison

    A 1.5-year hibernation in rye whiskey barrels yielded a more robust version of our Ovila Abbey Saison, yet its cunning display of flavors like fresh apples and cedar spice make it remarkably approachable.

    Knightro Irish-style Stout

    Black in color but surprisingly light in body with rich caramel and chocolate malty flavors.  It has a creamy mouthfeel and gentle carbonation from the use of a high percentage of Nitrogen instead of the typical carbon dioxide.

    Harvest Wet Hop IPA - Northern Hemisphere Harvest

    Northern Hemisphere features wet hops—picked from the field and into the brewhouse within 24 hours. This complex IPA boasts intense herbal and green hop aromas as well as rose-like and citrus flavor.

  • Boomerang IPA

    Boomerang is an American-style IPA that slings fruit-forward and floral flavors of Australian hops for an assertive, intercontinental escape from winter’s grasp.

    Flipside® Red IPA

    Flipside Red IPA is a rebuttal to the mild-mannered beers of summer. Tropical fruit and citrus hop flavors from the use of whole-cone Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial hops are the perfect notes for this in-between season.

    Beer Camp Double IPA

    This is a true “West-Coast” style double IPA using huge amounts of hops, both in the kettle for flavor, and afterwards in the torpedo to impart a massive hop aroma. The light malt body and dry finish hide the power in this deceptively drinkable hop-bomb.

    Narwhal® Imperial Stout

    Inspired by the mysterious creature that dwells in the deepest Arctic seas, Narwhal Imperial Stout is midnight black and bold—with notes of baker’s cocoa and dark roasted coffee. This massive imperial stout is incredibly complex and explores the darkest depths of malt flavor.

    Hoptimum® Imperial IPA

    Hoptimum is the biggest whole-cone IPA we have ever produced—a whole-cone hurricane of flavor. Aggressively hopped, dry-hopped, AND torpedoed, Hoptimum delivers ultra-intense flavors to hop fanatics everywhere.

    Audition Salted Caramel

    A heap of caramel malts and a dash of common salt drive the caramel-toffee flavors and subtle tartness of this dark gose-style beer.

  • Pale Ale

    Its unique piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops have fascinated beer drinkers for decades and made this beer a classic.

    Torpedo® Extra IPA

    The first beer to feature our “Hop Torpedo”—a revolutionary dry-hopping device that controls how much hop aroma and what kind is imparted into beer without adding additional bitterness.

    Ovila Abbey Tripel

    Ovila Abbey Tripel is a deceptively robust golden ale with complex floral hop notes and a traditional Belgian yeast’s fruity, peppery kick.

    Earl’s IPA

    Tea leaves long famous overseas bolster this English-style IPA with the rich citrus aroma and flavor of bergamot oranges.
