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 Golden Promise malt from the UK 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.

Rongorongo IPA  - 6.7% abv - 31 ibu

This hazy juice-bomb of a beer assaults your taste buds with tropical fruit flavors, coming from two massive dry hop additions of Mosaic, Denali, and Idaho 7 hops.  Low bitterness.

Smoked Stout - 4% abv - 19 ibu

Have you ever been drinking a crisp, clean, dry stout while you’re at a bon fire with friends? It’s kind of like that.

Aronia Saison - 4.5 ibu - 29 ibu

This deep-purple/pink Belgian beer was brewed with 100 lbs of juiced aronia berries grown by Berry Hill Orchard in Fertile. The unique sweet, sharp flavors of aronia berries blend in perfectly with the floral, fruity character of our distinctive Belgian yeast. This style of beer was originally brewed to satisfy thirsty farmers after a day in the field, but we think it’ll be just as satisfying after raking leaves or shoveling the driveway.

Bank Demon Russian Imperial Stout - 11.1% abv - 60 ibu

Hefty loads of dark roasted malts were use to create this fiercely flavorful Russian Imperial Stout. Sipping on this cold-weather treat will remind you of espresso, cocoa, and a hint of dried fruit, all leading to a satisfying bittersweet finish. We named this one after a local landmark that isn't around anymore - a spooky image in the marble wall (https://imgur.com/75qsE9h) of a bank that used to be a little west of downtown.

Bourbon Bank Demon - 12.7% - 60 ibu

After hibernating in bourbon barrels for 19 months, this spirit-driven rendition of our colossal Bank Demon Imperial Stout packs a wallop of flavor, combining the best attributes of imperial stout with the highlights of bourbon. Dark chocolate, caramel, marble cake, and butterscotch notes come from the diabolical duo. (No crowlers left. No growlers.)

Breakfast Bank Demon - 12.8% - 60 ibu

We’ll keep this description to just the facts: We aged our gigantic Bank Demon Imperial Stout in maple syrup barrels for 16 months. Our friends at Jitters freshly roasted just enough Brazilian coffee beans to give everything a boost. (No crowlers left. No growlers.)

Not Too Wild English Mild - 2.8% abv - 27 ibu

December was pretty crazy here at 17 North Federal -- full of boozy, barrel-aged one-offs and hopped-to-high-heaven IPAs. To start 2019, we decided to take it down a notch to calm everybody down with this: the Not Too Wild English Mild, a super low alcohol, old-world taste bud tingler made with traditional floor-malted Maris Otter malt. The floor malting process fosters vivid, back-to-basics flavors that will remind you of toffee, pie crust, and toasted walnuts.

Brut IPA - 6.5% abv - 23 ibu

One of our favorites to pop in and out of the menu is back again! Crisp/dry/fruity/refreshing Brut IPA gets its flavor and aroma from a gargantuan amount of hops, and you might want to try and detect if you can taste some changes in our recipe. For this batch we adjusted the hop bill to include Vic Secret, Motueka, and Hallertau Blanc hops. Boasting vivid flavors reminiscent of white wine and ripe pear, this beer has an extremely light body with no residual sugar.

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.
