The Big List of Our Many Other Brews

P.D.G. Pilsner
This German style Pilsner beer is straw colored with a white frothy head. The bouquet carries a hint of malt and spice. This is a clean, bitter beer, with a slight malt balance. Saaz hops add a spicy note to the brew. When you get a P.D.G you will find out why we say “It’s Pretty Damn Good!”
Belgian Razz
Our traditional Belgian ale with the tart flavors of raspberry. The perfect amount of raspberries gives this beer a fruity balance without being overwhelming.
Katy Brown Ale
A tasty interpretation of an American Brown Ale, as a result of mislabeled bag of malt. A lot more hop flavor and assertiveness than our normal British-style Brown Ale.
Steam Style Rye
This is a rye mash, which is warm fermented using lager yeast. The resulting brew is a very clean, malty, and spicy beer.
Schwarzbier
Our Schwarzbier is a dark German lager brewed with six specialty malts. It is medium bodied and nicely balanced to feature the kilned malt profile. Hopping is light at 14.8 BU's and the ABV is 5.0%.
Brown Rye Ale
Yet, another version using rye malt in the grist. In the brown rye, we add chocolate rye malt to give it a brown color and a deep roasted nut flavor. These flavors combine with the rye maltiness and spice, to produce a very complex brown ale.
Kolsch
Kolsch is a light ale fermented with a special ale yeast strain that is capable of fermentation at lager temperatures. As with most lager styles, Kolsch is light in body and golden in color. The beer has a clean, crisp palate with a soft dry finish. Hopping is light to allow a slight hop flavor and subtle spiceness from the Polish Marynka hops. The ABV is 5.3% and hop bitterness is 7 BU's.
Wilhelms Amber Lager
Wilhelms is typical of sweeter Vienna Lagers. It is amber colored, with low hop aroma and flavor allowing the malt aromas to shine.
Smithton Mild
Smithton is a British style mild that is very light in body and alcohol but very full of flavor. We serve Smithton lightly carbonated to bring out the full flavors of raisins and malt.
British India Pale Ale
We affectionately call this one BIPA. This true English I.P.A. is made with premium malt, only Goldings hops, and a special British yeast culture. Fruity aromas mix with the floral hops to greet your nose as you raise a pint of this brew. The bitterness is huge, yet it is crisp, dry, and clean.
Rye Lager
Our Rye is brewed with 37% rye malt. A portion of the rye is a crystal rye that contributes the rich reddish copper color. Hop bitterness is low, which allows the rye flavors to dominate. German Tettnang hops contribute a slight spicy flavor, and the California Steam style of yeast impart a neutral flavor. The ABV is 5.2% and hop bitterness is 15 BU's, or bitterness units.
Dark Wheat Ale
Begin your adventure into dark beer with this brew. Dark wheat has a light body, yet it is full of rich roast flavor. Malted wheat and barley are combined with roasted, chocolate and black malts for a complex brew that is light on the palate.
Milk Stout
Our Milk Stout is our Oil Change reciepe without the oats and with the addition of 50 pounds of Lactose sugar. Black in color with rich roasted and chocolate flavors that are balanced with the sweetness from the lactose sugar. Very creamy, sweet and flavorful. A great change of pace from the Oil Change Stout. The ABV is 4.6% and hop bitterness is 19 BU's.
Smoked Porter
Our Smoked Porter uses 85 pounds of malt that has been slowly smoked over a hardwood fire. This is added to our Baltic Porter to yield a flavorful, but not overly assertive smoked brew. German Tettnang hops provide a light bitterness, and our English ale yeast adds a layer of flavors that compliment the smoked and dark roasted malt flavor notes. The ABV is 4.8% and hop bitterness is 17 BU's, or bitterness units.
Porter
Our porter is brewed to the original English robust style. It has five specialty malts which give it a rich, roasted, and malty flavor. Lublin hops from Poland are used to balance the malt sweetness without imparting bitterness or flavor. The ABV is 5.4% and hop bitterness is 18 BU's.
Hefe-Roggen Beer
This is a summer brew akin to the Weizen beers of Germany. We use the rye ale recipe but add Weizen yeast to do the fermentation. The resulting brew is light, spicy, with the banana and clove aromas characteristic of the Weizen yeast.
