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.

Lever Press: 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. 4.8ABV $8/16oz

Slater’s Axe: German Pilsner

Brewed with Idaho grown Pilsner Malt and German Lager yeast. Aroma is dominated by German Tettnanger hops supported by a subtle Pilsner malt essence. Medium bitterness from MI Local Magnum hops helps Slater’s finish dry. 5.1ABV $8/16oz

 

Plumb Bob: Coffee Oatmeal Stout

Luscious American stout, brewed with local organic coffee from Higher Grounds. Dark, rich and aromatic.                       6.8 ABV $8/16oz

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 #34: Pre-Prohibition Lager

Fuller bodied, medium bitter lager. Brewed in the style of European immigrants who shaped American brewing before prohibition. Using North American grown ingredients, we can impart the “new world” terroir from the days of yore.
5.2 ABV 
$7.50/16oz

Switchblade #35: German Altbier

A well balanced, medium dry, Red Lager. A white lacey head releases the herbal Alsatian Barbe Rouge hops which lend a unique earthy spice to compliment the bready and nutty malt complexity. 4.9 ABV $7.50/16oz

Switchblade #36: Schwarzbier (German Dark Lager)

Pours black with a white Lacey head. Aromas of bready malt and faint roast lead to a medium/light body, balanced by locally grown Magnum hops. Made with Organic Pale Malt and roasted wheat. 4.7 ABV $7.50/16oz
