Current Tap List
Kölsch-Style Ale - ABV: 4.6% IBU: 24 The German word for ‘gathering place,’ this straw colored, sessionable Rhenish ale is crisp and refreshing with a pleasing effervescence and spicy noble hop aroma.
Norwegian Witbier - ABV: 4.7% IBU: 18 The little bear, a soft, slightly tart Witbier, is a brilliant straw color with gin-like hints from the addition of fresh juniper berries and orange peel. Generous amounts of wheat malt add a refreshing sweetness complemented by white wine flavors from the Hallertau Blanc hops and honey from the unique yeast strain.
Norwegian Red Ale - ABV: 6.6% IBU: 60 A big bear with the color of a Norwegian sunrise as well as the flavors and aromas of spice, mango, citrus, & dank hops. A unique strain of yeast fermented at high temperature adds a note of honey balanced by a moderate bitterness and subtle malt sweetness.
IPA - ABV: 5.5% IBU: 55 Dank hops, tropical fruit, tangerine and pine notes burst in this IPA, the color of liquid sunshine. Light bodied with a moderate bitterness that lingers a bit longer than winter daylight and finishes with a citrusy sweetness.
The Fur Trader
Mixed Fermentation Biere de Garde - ABV: 7% IBU: 33 The Fur Trader is the meeting point between Saison, Biere de Garde and Helles Bock, and is as unique and colorful as its namesake, Milwaukee founder Solomon Juneau. Biscuity and honey maltiness are bridged at odd angles by a moderate bitterness with peppery and citrus hop notes.
Wheat Wine- ABV: 10.5% IBU: 40 A Wheat Wine of a rusty crimson hue, with hints of pineapple, orange peel, pear, & peach. The 2019 Wordsmith lays a foundation of balanced bready sweetness and cleansing bitterness followed with lyrics of soft, fruity hop flavors, finishing with a crescendo of moderate viscosity.
Ryed of the Valkyries
Amber Lager - ABV: 5.2% IBU: 33 A spicy, pumpernickel bread flavor from the addition of three types of malted rye complemented by a floral & slight cucumber hop aroma. Single hopped with Pekko, a new dwarf varietal, creates a clean but assertive bitterness.
Shades of Blanc #1
Barrel-Aged Strong Golden - ABV: 7.8% IBU: 10 The first in Shades of Blanc, a series of beers made specifically to age in Sauv Blanc barrels, is a wonderfully fruity, tart golden ale dry hopped with German Callista and Saphir hops as well as Brewers Gold. Brilliant aromas of strawberry, white peach, and passion fruit remixed with soulful notes of red currant jam and orange marmalade. Sit back, put the headphones on, and enjoy.
Italian Pils - ABV: 5.2% IBU: 32 Goodbye Rome. Welcome to the Cream City, Italian Pils! A new refreshing twist on the pilsner thanks to Italian brewer, Agostino Arioli at Birrofico Italiano. This soft, pillowy lager has pleasing aromas of spice and lemon zest complemented by a moderate bitterness and crackery maltiness. Salut!
Oat Pale Ale - ABV: 4.6% IBU: 30 An overwhelming volume of El Dorado & Cascade hops, a mild bitterness obscured by the addition of flaked oats, and a lush distortion of dryness creates an ethereal mixture of hops, malt, yeast, and water. So crank the stereo, grab a pint, and let the music take over!
Dunkelweizen with Cherries - ABV: 5.3% IBU: 16 A collaboration with our friends at Bavarian Bierhaus, this beer starts as a classic Dunkelweizen, or dark wheat beer. We then added cherries which compliment the dark malts for a pleasant, not too sweet finish. Bavarians never had it so good!
One-Sided Debate: Brewer’s Gold
Single Hop IPA - ABV: 6.3% IBU: 48 There's always that one guy: just won’t shut up, talks about everything like an expert despite knowing very little, seems to lurk behind you waiting for you to turn your head when you have headphones on. Yep. We made that into an IPA. The first in this single hop series is Brewers Gold which imparts aromas of fresh orange blossoms, honey, and red currant jam. This One-Sided Debate will have you nodding your head intently with every word.
