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.

 

Slater’s Axe: German Pilsner

Brewed with Idaho grown Pilsner Malt and German Lager yeast. Aroma is dominated by German Hallertau Blanc hops supported by a subtle Pilsner malt essence. Medium bitterness from MI Local Magnum hops helps Slater’s finish dry. 5.25% ABV $8/16oz

 

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

 

Uncapper: Dry Honey Ale

Refreshing ale brewed with a big sting of local honey. This beer is crisp and dry- not bitter and not sweet. ABV 6% $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

Brewed with oats and wheat, bursting with tropical green aromas from Mosaic and Idaho Gem hops. ABV 5.6% $8/16oz

Stoker: Blueberry Kettle Sour

An enticing purple color leads to a Sour nose which opens the palette to a fruity blueberry flavor that finishes with a mouth watering tartness. ABV 4.9% $8/16oz

Switchblade #28: Cold IPA

Cold IPA is a new style worthy of its own category. Cold IPA is set apart from IPA and IPL by:

•No Carmel malt
•Uses lager yeast strain but at ale temperatures
• Less residual sugar
• Uses a lot of adjuncts, in our case corn
• clear as possible
• Drinkability of a lager with IPA hop profiles (basically the perfect beer style)

Idaho grown Pilsen malt and flaked corn deliver a smooth drinkability, balanced by a medium bitterness. Aromas are reminiscent of citrus, pineapple and green fruit delivered by simcoe and El Dorado hops. ABV 5.6% $7.50/16oz

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

CIDERS $8/16oz

Whistlepunk:

Dry, crisp

Stevedore:

Sweet, cinnamon
