Beer

Golden Number Ale $5/Pint

Golden ales are a delicate balance of malt and hops. To achieve this perfect balance, the ratio of malt and hops is based upon the actual golden number, the Fibonacci Sequence, or Phi as the Greeks knew it. We brew it floor-malted Extra Pale Maris Otter grown on the eastern coast of England. You can almost taste the salt air in the malt.

Aphrodite $5/Pint

Similar to our beloved Venus, this beer is named after a Goddess of Love. Belgian wheat combines with fresh orange peel and coriander for a nice softness. This Belgian yeast adds some nice fruit notes as well.

Victorian English Ale $5/Pint

This is a classic English-style ale. We were fortunate enough to get a hold of some incredible heritage barley, the Chevallier variety, that was grown in England in the 1800s and was highly sought after. It was cross bread in the early 1900s and all but disappeared. Fortunately the seed was preserved and for the first time in over 100 years they are growing this beautiful barley once again. Together with the classic English East Kent Golding hop, which imparts a nice flowery aroma, and a yeast from an old Yorkshire brewery, which adds a beautiful cherry and peach note, it is a simple beer, yet remarkable in its subtlety.

Belgian Golden Strong Ale $8.95/Schwenker

More of a deep golden color with a combination of sweet flavors from the malt, peach and berry fruit flavors from the yeast, and slight fruity and citrusy flavors from the hops. It’s a great blend of flavors providing for a nice complexity. Be careful with this one!

Saison duFive $5/Schwenker

This is a classic version of a saison. Saisons are a Belgian farmhouse style ale. Simple, light in color, refreshing, yet amazingly complex. Brewed with 100% Belgian pale malt which has a nice breadiness, yet pale in color. The European hops add a touch of floral and spice notes. But the saison yeast is the star of the show with a myriad of exotic spice flavors, tropical fruit, notes of peach, grape, apricot and even an earthy mustiness.

I Hate Politicians That Take Credit For Stuff They Didn’t Do IPA $6.50/Pint

We hopped this boy up. Chinook, Amarillo, Hallertau Blanc, Mosaic and Cascade all went in the kettle. Then we dry hopped it with Nelson, Citra and Azacca. Flavors and aromas of tangerine, passion fruit, lime, mango, peach and pine abound. You gotta love the hop plant – and you gotta hate all the politicians lining up to take credit for passing the beer bill recently after fighting it the past many years.

Electric Goat Maibock Lager $6.95/Stein

This beer takes almost three months to make. It is brewed with German barley, German hops and a German lager yeast. It is smooth. We lager it at cold temperatures for an extended period of time to develop smooth and rounded flavors. It is medium bodied with a nice malt character and has a slight toasted, caramel note. The sign of a well made bock is when you finally get off your bar stool to take a leak, you fall down. Deceptively strong.

Wee Heavy Scotch Ale $5/Schwenker

Scotland is famous for growing wonderful barley. We use a Scottish barley called Golden Promise. It is amazingly good, has a full, round sweetness to it, and is used by many distillers for their single malt Scotch. We caramelize the beer in the kettle which adds a nice depth of flavor. We use a Scottish yeast which accentuates the malt character of the beer and ferments very clean, we then lager the beer for a month, an unusual step for an ale, which adds to the smooth, clean roundness of the beer.

Decadent Brown Ale $5/Pint

Deca means ten. This beer is made with 10 malts and 10 hops. It is way over the top in flavor and is 10 times better than any other brown ale. This beer has a complex layering of flavors. From the malt side there are rich notes of chocolate, berry, toast, biscuits, and toffee. It is quite hoppy for a brown ale with a spicy, earthy and even fruity hop character.

Elmers Gluten Free $5/Pint

A light and refreshing buckwheat and sorghum based beer. Fairly hoppy with a citrus nose. Best gluten free beer you will ever taste.

Seeing Dubbel $9.95/Shwenker

It’s on the upper end of the scale for the style as far as strength. It has a twny brown color, with toffee and caramel malt flavors. The yeast adds a plum, raisin, and spice character. We keg condition ours which adds a nice complexity.

Dark Star Stout $5/pint

This is a traditional dry Irish style stout with flavors of coffee and chocolate, while a slight smoky character persists in the background. This recipe won Best Stout in the world at the World Beer Cup.

Citrus IPA $6.50/Pint

We hopped this boy up. Chinook, Amarillo, Hallertau Blanc, Mosaic and Cascade all went in the kettle. Then we dry hopped it with Nelson, Citra and Azacca. Flavors and aromas of tangerine, passion fruit, lime, mango, peach and pine abound. You gotta love the hop plant – and you gotta hate all the politicians lining up to take credit for passing the beer bill recently after fighting it the past many years. We added fresh grapefruit and orange to our Politians IPA.
