Current Menu  

We serve beer in our tap room in pints, half pints, or 5-ounce taster glasses.  Flights are available in sets of four 5-ounce tasters.  To-go beer options (for most of our beers) are growlers (64 ounces) and crowlers (32 ounces).  We will fill growlers that are brought in, but only if they're clean.    

 

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.

Rongorongo IPA  -  6.7% abv  -  31 ibu
Our take on a New England IPA, this hazy juice-bomb of a beer assaults your taste buds with tropical fruit flavors,.  4 lbs/bbl of Mosaic, Denali, and Idaho 7 hops were added in two massive loads in order to achieve the unique appearance.  Low bitterness and just enough of a malt backbone will make you want to drink one after another.  We named it after a written language found on Easter Island that no one can read, which reminded us of this beer because no one can see through it.

Smoked Stout - 5.1% abv - 19 ibu
Have you ever been drinking a crisp, dry stout while you’re at a bon fire with friends? It’s kind of like that.

Wee Heavy - 7.9% - 17 ibu
A big, sweet, rich beer brewed for sipping and savoring. This malt-forward powerhouse has hints of caramel and dried stone fruit with a touch a roastiness.

Islay Scotch barrel-aged Imperial Porter   -  10.4% abv  -  30 ibu
This colossal porter has been aged in Islay Scotch barrels for 4 long months, imparting a massive amount of the peat-smoked malt and oak flavors used to make the Scotch that spent the last decade or so in there. Marrying those flavors with the nutty dark chocolate flavor of the porter gives this beer an intensely complex flavor and aroma.  (Tap room of 10 oz or 5 oz pours only.  No growlers.  Limited Edition Release of crowlers has sold out. )

Cherrywood Saison  -   5.5% abv  -  29 ibu
This refreshing Belgian beer was aged for 6 weeks with cherrywood, giving it an extra layer of flavor that includes ripe cherry and light breadiness. The flavors from the wood compliment the big citrus and spice flavors created by an expressive Belgian yeast, ending in a crisp, abrupt finish that may remind you of drinking a *very* dry white wine.

Dopplebock  -  7.2% - 18 ibu
This malty German lager is packed with Munich and Vienna malted barley, leading to a rich malty flavor and aroma unlike any other style. Six weeks of lagering has allowed all the intense flavors of the malt come together to create a supremely drinkable and incredibly satisfying brew. This stick-to-your-ribs treat will provide you with the fuel to survive the rest of winter.

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Braggot    -  12.2% abv - 16 ibu
This braggot, which is a mead-meets-beer style with thousands of years of history, was brewed with 360 lbs of clover honey.  The sweetness of the honey blends perfectly with the vanilla, coconut, and caramel flavors created by the charred American oak used to make the bourbon barrels.  Aged 6 months.  (No growlers.  Limited Edition Release of 150 crowlers. Limit 3 per person per day.  No online sales of crowlers for this one.)

NEW:  Lavender Wit - 4.9% abv  -  17 ibu
Our first collaboration brew!  We teamed up with our beer buds at Lake Time Brewery in Clear Lake to create this special Belgian Wit.  It’s bursting with lavender, which comes together with a tinge of lemon to create a unique combo of herby and citrus flavors.  Very limited quantity.  Available in both brewery taprooms. 

 

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.
