An easy drinking beer with just enough complexity to make it interesting. Brick Red Ale drinks like a lager, with the attitude of an ale. Nutty aroma gives way to mild sweet caramel flavor and subtle background hops, with a smooth finish.
A brown ale with a bit more bite. A few more bittering hops and a late hop addition that take the complexity to a new level. Expect a little more bitterness and a citrus finish in addition to a chocolaty, slightly roasted, medium bodied backbone.
This is a nice easy drinking wheat beer with a little grain character from the flaked wheat. Malted wheat adds a slight citrus flavor. Hopping is intentionally low to allow malts to shine and not overpower the delicate fruit character.
Not as bitter as some and darker than most, you will not be disappointed with this IPA. No Paddle is an American IPA centered around hop flavor. The medium-light body with a caramel presence is a literal palette for our hoppy creation.
A golden light easy drinking beer with low hop character. A crisp, delicately balanced beer that will go well after a day mowing the lawn.
One of the hottest new hops is currently Citra. It is described as strongly tropical and lush with a host of fruit flavors. We wanted to showcase this with malts and hops that would provide a tasty blend.
Named in honor of the Wabash Trace Nature Trail, this American wheat is an easy drinking, refreshing beer. It is light-bodied, pale-colored, with just a hint of wheat aroma. Perfect for year-round refreshment, this beer has something for everyone.
The base for this beer is our Sharp Street Stout, a sweet style milk oatmeal stout. It boasts a thick chewy mouthfeel and very low bitterness; notes of chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel and toffee. This beer was aged in Old Forester Barrels for 11 months. The result is an addition of vanilla and bourbon character. We then treated the finished beer with additions of Coffee, Cacao, Hemp and Cashmere Hops.
This is our darkest offering, but many who proclaim to “not like dark beer” have turned a surprised eye. Sweet and full of roasted grains with hints of chocolate and coffee, resulting in a rich finish.
Our homage to the beers brewed in Mexico. These brews were inspired by, and in some cases, those originally brewed by German and Czech brewmasters. Keg Creek’s Güera Nueva is a beer that is malty but not too heavy. The use of Midwest corn as well as local hops really brings this beer home for us.
An enzyme long used to help make big imperial stouts a little easier on the palate has found a new purpose in an emerging style of IPA. The Brut IPA is a dry-0° Plato- version of the style that was created just months ago and is now spreading like wildfire.
Blake Rose brought in some of his newest Cashmere from the hop yard they have between Glenwood and Mineola, IA. We were so impressed, we asked our friends from Gezellig Brewing to come brew with us. Together we came up with a malt bill and hopping schedule to accentuate the dank fruity character of the fresh hops.
HefeWeizen (German: Yeast Wheat) is the breakfast beer of Bavaria. As any beer made in Germany that is not all barley malt must use an ale yeast, the phenolic (spice) producing strain used to make weizenbier, weizenbock, kristal weizen and roggenbier is used. We hope you enjoy this tasty addition to our family. Prost!
We rubbed some hops at the Nebraska Hop Yards. One of the standouts was Cashmere. Intensity was readily apparent as we opened the sample, and everyone agreed the dank strawberry character was outstanding. The mash bill to include a relative of hops, hemp seeds, to showcase the aroma with malts and hops providing a tasty blend. In addition to the strawberry notes, the hops lend a bit of citrus. The hemp seeds add some nutty background character.
We added dark cherry juice to our sweet style milk oatmeal stout. It now boasts a noticeable cherry nose, thick chewy mouthfeel and low bitterness; notes of chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruits, caramel, toffee and a cherry finish.
Part of our sour/tart project this Gose is Lemon forward. This ale was created to be thirst inspired as well as quenching.
As part of our sour/tart project we are creating beers that are thirst inspiring as well as they are quenching.
Light colored Scottish style ale. Malty with very low hop presence. This beer is brewed specifically for aging in whiskey barrels. In this case it was the wheated bourbon from W. L. Weller barrels.
This is an old-school malt heavy doppelbock, a German strong dark lager. This style of beer was brewed by the monks in Europe to drink during the Lenten fast. Literally liquid bread, this brew alone can sustain a human for 46 days. This was put to the test several years ago by J. Wilson with the original Illuminator brewed by head brewer Eric Sorensen. Read about the fast in J’s “Diary of a part-time Monk”. Unfiltered and well lagered, dark brown in color with bready malt notes as well as a little spice from the rye malt.
