Our approach to brewing:

An eclectic mix of New and Old World styles using mostly European malts and, whenever possible, aggressive amounts of American Hops. Our brewer first learned the British and German styles before making his way through several Michigan craft breweries to learn the trade from the best in his area. We seek to offer a range of strong, session, hoppy, mild, and local-sourced options that will provide something for every thirsty pilgrim that graces our floors, and inspire craft beer fans to keep coming back for more deliciously fresh frothy fare.

5 o'clock Whistle: Vienna IPA

By pairing lightly roasted Vienna malt with pale British base malt, we created a piquant and almost winey backdrop for one of our hoppiest beers on the menu. The Vienna malt leaves it a bit closer to the amber spectrum than many American IPAs.

ABV: 6.2%  IBU-53

Dune Rail: American Blonde

As a style, American Blonde Ales are less bitter than the typical American Pale Ale.  This refreshing beer, with restrained hop aroma, lets the fine German malts take the stage for a round.

ABV:4%  IBU-11

Electric Hart: Belgian Brown Ale

Strong Belgian Dark ales combine the tart and fruity flavors from the funky yeasts used with a complex malt background. Ours has a balance of fruity notes that compliment a roasty caramel flavor from a hint of brown English malt against a backdrop of bready German malts.

ABV: 8.2%  IBU-15

 

 

Find Your Way Bock: Chocolate Bock

Although you will taste deep dark chocolate in this bock, no chocolate was added.  All of the flavors come from the roasted chocolate malt used in its brewing.  You might also detect hints of licorice and stone fruit in its flavors.  Although not heavily hopped it does have a chocolate/coffee bitterness in its finish.

ABV: 6.7%  IBU-20

 

Fleming's Field: Apple Cider

Made with a mix of local apples from J & H Fleming Farm in Shelby, this cider is the perfect balance between sweet and tart.  A hint of green apple in the nose followed by sweet flavors in the body and a slightly dry finish, this cider will quench your thirst on even the warmest of summer days.

ABV: 6%  Gluten Free

 

Little Walker: Dark Mild

Invoking brewing methods mostly abandoned by modern brewers, we made this beer from the second runnings (leftover sugar, often wasted) from our Great Walker Imperial Stout. It has a big, nutty, and tart classic stout flavor with a crisp finish.

ABV:5.5%  IBU-22

 

 

 

Oceana Gold: Rye Saison

The Saison style was traditional brewed in late winter or early spring by Belgian farmers to be consumed during the summer months while working in their fields.

The Saison yeast strain used to ferment this beer lends hints of banana and clove to the nose and carry through to the body.  We used a little rye malt in the recipe to add a slight spice character to its flavors.

It’s slightly hazy golden/ orange color is reminiscent of the beautiful summer sunsets over Lake Michigan that we get to enjoy.

ABV: 7.5%     IBU-15

 

Odds & Sods: English Bitter

You will detect a hint of sweet chocolate in the nose that carries over into the body where it is mixed with roasty, nutty flavors and a slight coffee bitterness that fades into a clean finish.

ABV: 6.2%    IBU-40

 

 

Screeching Sands: Agave Amber

Made as a loving tribute to the famous cactus, this strong hoppy amber ale blends German malts, blue agave syrup, and American hops.

ABV: 7.8%    IBU:35

Test Hill: Double IPA

A strong American-style IPA that packs a full-power hop aroma blast in each sip. A small amount of Belgian sugar amps up the strength while leaving it drier than an all-malt beer.

ABV:9.5%  IBU-68

Workingman's: Helles Alt

Before the widespread popularity of bottom-fermenting lager beers, most German-brewed beers were what we would now call ales. Acknowledging this history, the style called “Alt” which is German for “old” exists as a throwback to older brewing methods. Our take on the style is more golden-pale than most modern German amber versions.

ABV:5%  IBU-21
