Blonde Ale - 4.6% abv - 12 ibu
A classic easy-drinking ale, brewed with three varieties of light malt from around the world to create complex but inoffensive flavor sure to please the masses.

American Wheat - 4.5% abv - 10 ibu
This crisp, clean, refreshing ale shows off the subtle flavor of the mighty wheat kernel by using clean-fermenting American Ale yeast and light hopping schedule, allowing the classic wheat flavor to pop through.

Robust Porter - 6.3% abv - 23 ibu
Five specialty malts come together in this dark ale to create a roasty, toasty, flavor that reminds you of coffee, caramel, and dark chocolate.

IPA - 6.1% abv - 61 ibu
Oh baby, this hop-monster showcases an explosive aroma of Centennial, Chinook, and Belma hops to make a fruity, resiny, dank beer, all balanced by the crisp bittering of Columbus hops.

Scottish Ale - 5.1% abv - 17 ibu
This smooth red beer flaunts two caramel malts with a guest appearance by a few other specialty malts to make a big, sweet, satisfying taste that will make you want another.

American Barleywine  -  10.1% abv - 52 ibu
Warm up your taste buds, people. Our American Barleywine is now on tap! This is our biggest, boldest, burliest, and booziest beer to date. We tested the limits of our mash tun, packing in 800 lbs of barley to provide the luscious caramely malt backbone, which we balanced by dumping in a colossal load of hops during an extra long boil. The end result a hoppy, malty, full-bodied brew that will keep you warm for the rest of winter... if our supply lasts that long!

Honey Kolsch - 6.1% abv - 11 ibu
We were excited to be able to go local for the spotlight ingredient in our Honey Kolsch.  This gold-tinted ale is made with 50 lbs of wildflower honey from our bartender Tim Huey’s hives in Nora Springs.  Sweet honey balances the classic Kolsch flavors of pilsner malt and subtle fruitiness provided by German-style yeast.  It's a easy-drinking full-flavored brew that's perfect for spring.  Thanks for the great honey, Tim!

American Pale Ale - 4.1% abv - 41 ibu
Dry hopped with fruity Belma and herbal Sterling hops, this well-balanced APA provides the perfect yin-to-yang of crisp bitterness and fruity hoppiness to keep you refreshed as spring turns into summer. Hops are the star of the show in this crowd-pleasing beer, but the recipe has just enough caramel malt to keep them in check.

Belgian Golden Strong  -  9.5% abv - 13 ibu
This deep-gold colored ale packs a punch of big, tropical fruit flavors and aroma. Lightly hopped with a surprisingly simple grain bill, a special strain of Belgian yeast takes center stage in this production by creating pineapple and mango flavors unlike any other style of beer. 

Oatmeal Stout (Nitro) -  7% abv - 21 ibu
This rich, creamy, jet-black stout is brewed flaked and crystal oats, along with three types of dark roasted barley. Full-bodied and full-flavored, it's nitrogenated to give it a smooth evervescence. The bold flavors meld together for a profound depth of flavors, including bitter chocolate, malty-sweetness, and a slight nuttiness.  No crowlers or growler on Nitro beers, sorry!  

Matcha Wit   -  4.3% abv  -  12 ibu
This unicorn of a beer is brewed with a boatload of Matcha as well as traditional Belgian Wit ingredients like coriander and orange peel.  Matcha (finely ground green tea powder) gives this beer an amazing kick of green tea herbaciousness, nicely balanced by the citrus notes from the fresh coriander and orange peel. A wheat-heavy malt bill combine with those flavors to make an supremely refreshing summer-time thirst-quencher. 

 

Cider & Root Beer

Wilson's Orchard Cherry Crush
A very cherry hard cider
One of the fruit world’s unsung heroes is the humble tart cherry. Not a stand-alone showboat, they instead combine with other foods to bring magic to all kinds of fine dining. Our cherry crush cider mixes the rich flavors of tart cherries with the mildly sweet background of hard apple cider. Just enough cherry to think summer, just enough hard apple cider to keep it interesting glass after glass.  Alc 4.5% by vol

Wilson's Orchard Goldfinch
A slightly sweet hard cider
At Wilson’s Orchard, we grow over 100 varieties of apples. To make Goldfinch we started with Goldrush, a stupendous apple which combines tannins and tartness in a tasty yellow package. To that we added several sweeter apples to produce a full bodied cider with enough tang to keep it interesting and a hint of sweet to keep it going down smooth.  Alc 4.8% by vol

1919 Root Beer
1919 is brewed in small batches in New Ulm, Minnesota, by Schell's Brewing Company with only the finest ingredients (real sugar and real vanilla).  1919 is alcohol-free and contains no corn syrup, gluten, or caffeine.
