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

Lever Press: Juicy IPA

 

 Juicy IPA brewed with Barley, Oats, Wheat and experimental hop HBC-586. Pillowy mouthfeel from Oats and Wheat balance a medium bitterness. Subtle spicy flavors from the HBC-586 hops compliment a citrusy pineapple aroma, which almost hints towards a more exotic cannabis aroma.
