Boont Amber Ale is a medium bodied pale ale with a beautiful copper color, a robust head, and the rich flavor of caramel malt. This very smooth and exceptionally drinkable beer is excellent with steaks, chicken, pasta, and other flavorful meals.
As with all of our products, Boont Amber Ale is never sterile filtered nor heat pasteurized, and should be stored in refrigeration. However, to fully enjoy its rich and complex flavor, it should be served between 40Â° and 45Â°F
A rich, copper ale with a case full of gold medals.
Our California Amber takes its inspiration from traditional English ESBs. Four types of malts give it a bold complexity, and our proprietary yeast strain lends it a fruity, madeira-like richness. However, itâ€™s the American hops that give this ale a distinct bite and floral aroma that have earned it just about every major beer medal.
A well-balanced, medium to full-bodied beer, red in color and very flavorful.
This is an Imperial Blonde Ale or Blonde Barley Wine. It has the lightest color of the beers in our program but really carries a lot of interesting barrel character: vanilla, light char and amazing lavender honey notes. There is a rich boozy honey liqueur character and loads of smooth sweet toasted malt. The El Dorado hops dance in the back ground and do not play a dominant role in the flavor profile. This beer gets better and better the longer it is in barrel.
Very limited draft availability.
Single El Dorado hopped American style barley wine that his high in both abv and ibu. Big hoppy nose followed by a balanced mid-palate and a slightly caramel finish. This one can do some damage. It definitely drinks smaller than a 9% beer.
A light bodied, crisp and flavorful dark ale with hints of semi-sweet chocolate and soft nuances of fresh coffee. This beer is counter intuitive in the way that it pours dark as night but tastes like a lighter beer encompassing a range of full flavor.
A full flavored brown ale that derives sweet caramel and toasted qualities from four different kinds of malt and specialty grains. Select hop varieties add enticing aroma to the nose and create a dry finish. This ale is so dark and rich, it's hardly classifiable as brown, but is certainly considered a delicious masterpiece.
Here's what happens when substance meets smooth. This oatmeal brown ale defies traditional categories. Bender begins crisp and lightly hoppy, complemented by the velvety sleekness oats deliver. Belgian and British malts usher in cascades of cocoa, coffee, caramel and hints of vanilla and cream. An easy-drinking ale with many layers of satisfaction.
The Boffo Brown ale is a beer that we brewed years ago and then put it in semi retirement for a couple years while we focused on other brands at the brewery. We have recently put it back onto active duty and are brewing it all year. The beer itself is delicious and is a favorite to many of us here at the brewery. Just as most of our beers it's on the "full body" scale pushing the envelope of what an American Brown Ale is to most people. The beer is a very deep/dark color of brown with a nice creamy tan head. The mouthfeel of the beer is very soft and is very drinkable. Flavors of malt, caramel, toffee, and a mild earthy nutty finish allow this beer to be paired with hearty food and sips of bourbon.
Deliberately blazing our own trail, we brewed this barrel aged brown ale believing there is room for a new craft beer category: â€œSessionable Bourbon Barrel Aged Beersâ€. Weighing in at 6.8% ABV ( Alc. 6.8% by Vol. ), the rich chocolate notes & creaminess of the flaked oats easily justify this beer bringing home a FoBAB medal this year. We hope you enjoy the â€˜Lil Griz.
Sunlight Cream Ale is our most approachable beer and is a great introduction to the world of Craft Beer. Cream ale is one of the earliest styles of American beer, but was virtually wiped out by American lager brewers. Our Cream Ale is an all malt beer. Only the finest quality barley, wheat and oats are used to give this beer itâ€™s smooth malt profile which is delicately balanced with American hops and a cool fermentation to give this beer a crisp, clean finish.
Smoked Imperial Stout
brewed with cherrywood, beechwood, and oak smoked malt
Son of a Baptist is an 8% ABV imperial stout. It is not barrel aged like its father, Big Bad Baptist; instead its flavor profile was designed to highlight the complex and often unique flavors of small batch coffees. Instead of sourcing a coffee that would play well in a beer we sought out creative and innovative roasters, then asked them which beans theyâ€™re passionate about. Each resulting release of Son of a Baptist is widely different depending on the coffee selected. Some are fruity and sweet with notes of jam and chocolate, others are rich and earthy with a big roasted finish. Each limited release will return to the Roasterâ€™s home market where the beer and the coffee can be sampled side by side.
Crisp and refreshing, our Blackberry IPA brings together floral and citrus hop notes and finishes with a sweet blackberry backbone.
A hopped up IPA that always maintains the same consistent grain bill. However, we craft our IPA with a new twist each time it is expertly brewed!
As we know, hop varietals are growing rapidly and we are always attempting to take advantage of them. Our "Craft'd" IPA will always change based on which hops we want to use at the time.
Whenever Craft'd is on, make sure you give it a try!
Big, juicy citrus complexity. The rich golden hue is clear as the sky. Typical hop punch but without the long lingering sting. Slight grassy notes but a wonderfully balanced brew.
This IPA will seriously punch you right in the taste buds. Strong and resinous hop aroma. Bitter bite but smooth, yet lingering finish. Not for the faint of heart.
This gem is honored with the name of the hop plant, Humulus lupulus, and is Short's best selling India Pale Ale. It has such an abundant amount of hops that it sensually provides a punch to the palate. The numerous hop varieties used in its creation render a delicious bitter taste and enticing citrus aroma. The hearty malt bill melds with the hops to create a perfect balance.
Resurrected has been reincarnated as Incarnation India Pale Ale! Due to expanding to different markets we had to change the name of our mosaic hopped IPA formerly known as Resurrected. Incarnation will start to take over Resurrected out in the market, so be ready! Do not be alarmed, though- It is the same beautiful beer, but with a new name.
Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!
Dank Juice, our East Coast IPA, with Pink Guava.
Rupture was born out of our obsession with getting the most out of each and every hop. In fact, we built a machine in our brewery to incorporate a unique fresh grind process. By grinding the whole hop, we "rupture" the lupulin inside - releasing the oil that gives the beer its flavor. And what we grind that day, we use that day. Leaving you a beer thatâ€™s fresh, aromatic, with an unparalleled bright, hoppy character.
This IPA is short and sweet: A wonderful India Pale Ale Brewed with Amarillo hops. Enjoy!
This ainâ€™t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purÃ©e, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine â€” the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit â€” we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (youâ€™d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didnâ€™t tell you it was there). Weâ€™re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the â€œI want my beer to taste like fruit juiceâ€ crowd. This is Stone. We like our IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids.
Inspired by the fall hop-harvest, this wet-hop IPA offers earthy, green aromas from the Hop Head Farms wet Chinooks ahead of a layered malt middle, and dry, bitter hop finish.
The team is pairing up with Sublime to create a Mexican-style lager. You heard that right â€” the brewery is working with the remaining members of the legendary SoCal-based ska-rock band Sublime to craft a Mexican-style lager in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their iconic debut album, â€œ40oz. to freedom.â€ â€œIt doesnâ€™t taste like anything else. The flavor is great and it has a craft beer flare with a true Mexican lager taste. This is the one!â€ â€“ Sublime co-founder Bud Gaugh. â€œ
Local's Light is a light, yet very tasty lager. The light pilsen malt creates a soft and subtle flavor profile that finishes crisp and clean on your palate.
Local's Light is a perfect beer for the seasoned craft brew enthusiast and someone new to microbrews. When Short's first opened, there was not a great deal of craft beer available in the area. Joe Short wanted to create a beer that would appeal to new craft beer drinkers who lived in Michigan, and introduce them to the complex flavors of other beer styles.
Coconut Pale Ale - This beer will align your beats with those felt on island time.
AleSmith dialed in the recipe resulting in an extremely drinkable 6% ABV Pale Ale with light bitterness and accentuated hoppiness designed to fill the gap between AleSmith X Extra Pale Ale and AleSmith IPA. This San Diego Pale Ale will showcase abundant piney and citrusy hop aroma and flavor from an intense dry-hopping schedule. A balanced malt profile will round out these hoppy flavors with a biscuity finish to enhance drinkability throughout the innings.
The name â€œ394â€ (.394) references the highest single-season batting average Gwynn set back in 1994. Note *** in 1941 Ted Williams batted .406, Williams was the last player to bat .400 in a season. ***. Ready to be released at the June 6th Padres Beerfest, San Diego Pale Ale 394 will reflect the commitment to excellence shared by the legendary Tony Gwynn and the AleSmith team.
A crisp easy drinking Pils with just enough hopping for bitterness and a flavorful compliment to the malt.
Stella Artois was first brewed as a Christmas beer in leuven. It was named Stella from the star of Christmas, and Artois after Sebastian Artois, founder of the brewery. It's brewed to perfection using the original Stella Artois yeast and the celebrated Saaz hops. It's the optimum premium lager, with it's full flavour and clean crisp taste.
Pasteurised. Usually called Draught; sometimes called Cold or Extra Cold - same beer, but served colder.
Launched in 1961.
Ingredients: Pale ale malt, about 25 to 30% flaked barley, and about 10% roasted barley, with no other grains or sugars; several hop varieties, mainly Goldings (pellets and isomerized extract); a flocculent head-forming ale yeast.
A friendly Wisconsin- Belgium collaboration. Abtsolution! Brewmasters Dan and Dirk Naudts of De Proefbrouwerij in Lochristi explore the Belgian ABT style. Wisconsin weighed in with Santium and Chinook hops. Happy cows contributed milk lactose to impart the velvety smoothness of this dark ale. Both ales are designed to enjoy today, or will evolve beautifully over next 1-2 years if you are that patient.
Sunking/Chilly Water collaboration! We brewed two different versions of the same beer. Dubbel Vision is a Belgian Dubbel with made with Belgian yeast. Double Vision is an English Double made with English yeast.
Central Coast Quad
Blended cabernet wine barrel-aged Belgian wheat, dry hopped with Hallertau Blanc hops
A complex, roasty porter with a bittersweet, chocolate-coffee taste and bold hop presence.
Sure, Gordon Lightfoot hasn?t penned an ode to it (yet), but this porter is song-worthy?much like its legendary namesake ship that frequently docked in Cleveland and tragically sunk in Lake Superior in 1975 with many Northeast Ohioans on board.
Hard apple cider blended with Michigan Raspberries.
After the harvest, we press our organic apples and allow them to slowly ferment for up to six months. We then carefully hand-fill and label each bottle and let it age for several weeks to properly condition.
There are only two ingredients in our Orchard Gate Gold: Apple Juice and Yeast. No artificial flavors or colors and - of course - no sulfite nor preservatives of any kind.
This cider was specially made for a draft customer in Grand Rapids, MI.. We are using over 4 lbs. of homemade cinnamon roasted pecans in a 30 gallon batch of this limited edition cider to bring you Totally Roasted. You will notice that soaking pecans in cider brings a unique texture and taste to the drink. We use cinnamon and vanilla during the roasting process and follow that up by adding whole cut vanilla beans to the cider. These subtle tastes certainly make this a cider all itâ€™s own.
Belgian golden ale brewed with raspberries pleasantly tart with fresh raspberry aroma on nitro
Los Locos is a sessionable, refreshing lager with a hint of corn sweetness, a dash of sea salt and the perfect kick of natural lime juice. It not only pairs perfectly with spicy Mexican dishes but is a great accompaniment to all of your favorite summer activities.
Sister beer to Syrah, Pinot inspired sour features blueberry, boysenberry, cranberry, strawberry, and plum. French oak and Brettanomyces
A lot of people have asked us "why are there Bee's on the label?" Well, we don't really have an answer for you other than they just look cool. This is a light bodied easy drinking ale. We only use real raspberries so the flavor is very mild fruit and balanced, not what you would expect from a "fruit" beer. The way we see it is we're brewers so lets make good beer, not some fruity carbonated malt beverage. Oh yeah, our motto..."beer first, fruit second".
Made with pilsner and red wheat malts. Hopped and dry hopped with German Tettnange for a total of 1 lb per barrel. Herbal and floral aromas with a clean, crisp mouth feel and slightly sweet finish.
An Octoberfest that lives in the malty bosom of Munich's storied tradition. Take a drive through Lager Town. 6% ABV.
Ever seen a unicorn? How about a baby German one that's not white, but black? Well now is your chance to let one merrily prance across your pallet. This black German-style session lager is refreshing, crisp and mystically intriguing with its maltiness.
Like FDR's Depression-Era Radio Addresses, which were like a kick in the butt and a hug at the same time, our Fireside Chat is a subtle twist on the traditional seasonal brew. We begin with a rich, dark, English-style ale and then we improvise with spices until we know we have a beer worth sharing with the nation. Celebrating the right to be original.
The big wide world inspires our imagination and fuels our passions. Anything from music, film, beer, literature, architecture, food, engineering, poetryâ€¦all art forms essentially, including more beer. We steal with any and all things that possess the one value that we hold most dear: authenticity. The important thing of course is that â€˜Itâ€™s not where you take things from â€“ itâ€™s where you take them to.â€™ So, what are we saying about this beer, exactly? We gave it our take. We took all there is to love about the IPA, got creative, dry-hopped it a lot, left it unfiltered and shared it openly in the hopes that in some way it may, in turn, inspire you. Hail to The Hop Thief, an original.
Prodigiously hopped yet nimbly brewed with pilsner malts, Adversus ultimately achieves the improbable: a big, bold IPA made for summertime sipping. A hard-charging blend of Pacific Northwest hops leads the way, loading the nose with notes of stone fruit, pineapple, mango and earthy pine resin. Meanwhile, the use of traditional pilsner malts adds levity and dryness to the palate, allowing for a refreshing texture through the finish. The result is a double IPA that is high on hop aromas, balanced in bitterness and perfect for the long, warm days of summer.
Just like the Evolution replaced the Shovelhead, our Big Twin DIPA is evolving into a killer 8% intensely hopped, bright double IPA with a dry but bitter finish. Hopped with mandarina and mosaic, it is a superbly well balanced brew!
A cousin to our original Clencher, this beer is hopped throughout with Simcoe and Citra, Clencher is loaded with pine and citrus aromas and the body and alcohol to compliment it's assertive flavors.
A hophead's dream beer. This Imperial India Pale Ale has an opening salvo of mango, peach and citrus hop aromas that sit atop a pronounced caramel malt backbone. Although Dreadnaught is a strong and intensely hoppy ale, its complex flavor is both smooth and memorable.
Our all-important, hop-driven quest to deliver the most devastatingly fresh IPA on the planet facilitated a paradigm shift in 2012 with the launch of Stone Enjoy By IPA. Not only did we brew this beer with more than 10 different hops, we brewed it specifically NOT to last. Acclaimed for its ground breaking short shelf life, this intense double IPA brought forth a whole new concept of what constitutes â€œfreshâ€ â€” guaranteeing fans the ultimate level of hoppiness
STONE ENJOY BY 10.31.17 IPA

A tropical Double IPA with a Death Metal kick to the codpiece. Brewed with yuzu, kiwi & habanero
We have been serving Dark Matter Chocolate City Iced Coffee on tap at Tribes for a long time. We love it. Our guests love it. We love our IPA. Our guests love our IPA. Soooo..just like a peanut butter cup, we married the two flavors together for one outstanding beverage. Someone put coffee in my beer! Hey, someone but beer in my coffee! However you look at it your bound to love it.
This beer is intended to be our interpretation, paying homage, to the true west coast style. Expect big, bold and bracing bitterness with tropical fruit notes of mango and grapefruit. Taste the bold and resinous flavor from massive dry hopping. But you better be careful 'cause this brew will take you from 0-100 real fast!
Aroma is juicy tropical fruit mixed with caramel and oranges. Tastes intense. Big tropical fruit sweetness up front along with some moderate dank hops. Finishes very bitter with lingering grass, weed, pine, and light cedar.
Our Blood Orange Gose is a tart, refreshing wheat ale that is kettle-soured with lactobacillus and brewed with sea salt and coriander. However, unlike traditional versions of the style, ours features liberal additions of blood oranges during fermentation. This imparts tangy citrus notes that complement the champagne-like flavors, creating a complex and sessionable ale perfect for any occasion.
An American Wheat Ale, Gumballhead is named in honor of the underground comic book cat created by Rob Syers. Initially a seasonal summer beer, now brewed year round due to demand. This beer helped redefine American Wheat Beers. Brewed with Amarillo Hops and a generous portion of American red wheat, Gumballhead has a complex hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, marmalade and peach. These flavors combined with low bitterness make Gumballhead a refreshing American Wheat Beer that doesn't suck.
A striking, robust porter full of warmth and chocolate malt. Eugene is a robust porter named after Eugene V. Debs, an American union leader and activist who led the Pullman Railroad strike in 1894. An assortment of Belgian specialty malts form a complex structure of toasted grain and caramel flavors. Dark chocolate malt makes this porter black as night and infuses it with its distinct intense, chocolate essence.
Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders' robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It's a lover, not a fighter.
Our twist on the traditional american porter, Shake chocolate porter is black in color with rich, dark chocolate aromatics and flavors and subtle coffee-like notes. This unique brew blends five different grains, including Chocolate Wheat, that along with cacao nibs create a devilishly delicious chocolate finish with a velvety mouth feel.
Robust, full bodied porter with roasted notes of chocolate and dark caramel.
Crystal and Chinook full-hopped character, dark orange hued in color, light on the nose but has a nice spicy/sweet finish. Caramel sweet maltiness with peppery spiciness from the rye. This is the beer that makes "Lincoln-Way" famous!
For those of you who don't know who "Scotty Karate" is... He is a local one man band who plays an amazing slurry of honky tonk influenced, punk country songs. His voice is amazing as well as his high energy shows. (Check him out @ www.scottykaratetime.com) So, we decided to make a beer and name it in his honor. This beer is a big, full bodied Scottish ale. It is 9.75% alc. but it is very smooth and balanced. Since Scotty is also very passionate about beer I asked him to write a description for you, so from the man himself... Aroma: Smells like A fresh caramel apple with a hint of cinnamon inside of cranberry shortbread. Or maybe fresh home made hard candy (from home economics class-7th grade). Flavor: Tastes like a smokey chocolate chip cookie, wild roadside cherry-asparagus, woody, crispy leaf on a fall day.
Wee Mac is a Scottish style brown ale. Fermented at cooler than normal temperatures to mimic the climate of Scotland. Wee Mac is an easy drinking brown ale that is both smooth and malty wit caramel and chocolate tones. Hops are used sparingly in this beer and serve only to help balance the sweetness of the malt.
Looks can be deceiving! This satisfying simulation of self exploration is sure to surprise your pallet. It's an extremely smooth sessionable coffee blonde. So light a candle and enjoy the adventure this beer has to offer.
Named with a nod to the early brick industry in Blue Island, "Ziegelei" (pronounced SEE-glee-eye) translates to Brickyard. This light Bavarian hefeweizen combines yeast-derived flavors of banana and clove with a light malt base to make for a refreshing beer.
A unique style makes for a unique beer. Sweet nose and palate from the cacao nibs and vanilla beans. Lightly hopped with Bravo and Cascade offering a pleasant taste not often found in stouts. Mix in 4 gallons of Dark Matter Chocolate City and now you have got a real winner. Lingering soft finish makes this an easy drinking stout that shouldn't be missed.
In the tradition of "Honeymoon" or aphrodisiacal meads, this luscious sweet wine stirs the senses and arouses the passions.
This English style of beer, also known as Sweet Stout or Cream Stout, first appeared in London in the late 1800s. The early brewers touted the health benefits of the milk sugar in this beer which today relates mainly to the increased amount of calories(no real health benefitsâ€¦sorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year round stout.
