Aspen Wit
Brewed with Pilsen malt, wheat malt and unmalted wheat. Flavored with “gruit”, a combination of coriander, orange and bitter orange. White, crisp, refreshing, and unlike its namesake, no bite!
Belgian Style Wheat Ale
Firehouse Blonde
Refreshing! Light! Firehouse Blonde has a restrained fruitiness and slight bitterness. Great with spicy foods!
Blonde Ale
Summer Sky
You can distinctly smell and taste a banana flavor with a clove finish produced by the yeast. In Germany, Hefeweizen is a breakfast beer.
Bavarian Style Hefeweizen
Wee Heavy
A sweet and malty scotch ale, with very slight bitterness and restrained hoppiness - it’s just a wee heavy. Great with fruits, pork, and the bagpipes.
Scotch Ale
Caramel in color, you can taste notes of apricot and freshly baked bread - what do you think? Try it with a burger or steak!
Amber Ale
Triple Witch *
With a touch of sweetness from Belgian candy sugar, you’ll taste plum and a bit of spice in a very mellow, well balanced strong ale. Because of its strength, 10 oz. pours only. * Premium priced ale
Belgian Style Ale
Dog Tooth
A traditional English Style dry pale ale with pleasant maltiness and flavorful hoppiness. A true beer drinker’s dream.
Pale Ale "Butternut Pale Ale"
Hop Warrior *
100+ IBU, lots of maltiness and 8%+ ABV! A very tasty full flavored ale. It has earned the tag line “Watch out for the Warrior!” This one costs more for your own protection! * Premium priced ale
Imperial IPA
Original Dark Nut Brown
A rich, dark nut brown, it has deep flavors of roasted barley and chocolate. Not so bitter, very smooth. Great with steak. Great with cake. Great alone.
"Black Walnut Nut Brown Ale"
Nothing traditional here! An IPA brewed with Black Patent Malt. Dry hopped. Very complex flavors.
Black IPA
