JOURNEYMAN (available year-round) $7/16oz

Tenpenny: Blonde Ale

Thirst-quenching, highly drinkable, and
light-bodied. Malt-forward and gently
bittered with MI Local magnum and crystal
hops. A great intro to craft beer. ABV4.9%

Cold Chisel: Biere Blanche

Aromatic and refreshing Belgian-style
“white beer.” Brewed with a hint of
orange peel, coriander, and Great Lakes
Malting wheat. ABV 6.0%

Shop Light: “Light Beer”

Easy-drinking, sessionable brew. This deceivingly full-of-flavor light beer is one that you’ll want at the beach, on the boat, mowing the lawn, or whenever you’re feeling parched. ABV 4.1%

Ball Peen: ESB

Bronze-hued ale with earthy appeal:
medium body, full malt flavor, and enough
MI Local magnum and willamette hops to
balance. A staff fave. ABV 5.3%

10-pound Sledge: English IPA

English yeast and plentiful hops (MI Local
magnum, centennial, and willamette). This
is old-school IPA. ABV 5.5%

20-Pound Sledge: American IPA

Abundant doses of Amarillo, Citra, and MI
Local hops yield pronounced bitterness
and powerful citric aromas. ABV 7.1%

Pry Bar: Porter (nitro)

Rich and dark with overtones of baker’s
chocolate. Modest gravity and hopping
make it approachable-nitro draft makes
it smooth. ABV 5.1%

SEASONALS & SWITCHBLADES

Seasonal favorites as well as our brewer’s ever-changing personal tap.

 

N.A.ilgun: Non-Alcoholic Beer

Organic 2 row dominate the nose coupled with the light aroma of Crystal hops. Medium bodied, full flavored.
ABV0.30% $8/16oz

 

Mallet: (Award Winning) Session IPA

Mallet is a crushable low-gravity, IPA. With medium bitterness, a copper complexion, and piney grapefruit aromas, Mallet packs a wallop of thirst-quenching, hoppy yumminess. (Mallet won Silver in the 2020 U.S. Open Beer Championship’s Light IPA category!) ABV 4.0% $8/16oz

Lever Press: Juicy IPA

Juicy IPA brewed with Barley, Oats, Wheat and Pacific NW grown Simcoe and Zappa Hops. Pillowy mouthfeel from Oats and Wheat balance a medium bitterness. Subtle spicy flavors from Simcoe hops converge with Zappa hops in a prominent citrusy pine aroma, which almost hints towards more exotic cannabis aroma. 5.8% ABV $8/16oz

 

Switchblade #31: Zappa I.P.L.

Zappa is one of, if not the most interesting hop variety on the scene. Our ZIPL has a citrusy green aroma with hints of passion fruit and spice. It’s aroma is backed by a clean light Pilsner malt character, with a perfect balance of sticky bitterness. 5.25 ABV $7.50/16oz

Switchblade #32: Kolsch

A slightly sweet aroma opens up the subtle herbal aromatics from Barbe Rouge hops. Delicate malt presence balances out a medium-low bitterness from locally grown Magnum hops, finishing crisp and dry. 4.6 ABV $7.50/16oz

Switchblade #33: Barrel Aged Pilsner

Pilsner aged in Mammoth Distillery Gin barrels for 10 months, then  finished with Brettanomyces. Bursting with floral sweet aromas from noble hops and wild yeast. Slightly tart, finishes dry. 6.8 ABV $7.50/16oz

Stoker: Black Raspberry Kettle Sour

Deep purple complexion matches with the sweet aromas of jam and raspberry sherbet. The quick sourness compliments the flavor of dark berries from Smeltzer Farms, allowing for puckering finish. 4.5% ABV $8/16oz

 

Bastard Rasp: Raspberry Wit Biere

Classic Wit Biere brewed with copious amounts of raspberries. More dry than sweet, with a raspberry nose and a smooth mouth feel. Raspberries direct from Smeltzer Farms in Frankfort MI. ABV5.3% $8/16oz
