This crushable orange-amber hued haze bomb greets you with juicy citrus and tropical fruit notes from the large additions hops. NE Cashmere and NE Triple Pearl lend themselves to subtle melon and strawberry aromas. Hints of resin, earthiness, and spice round out the nose. Columbus Hop Hash gives a clean bitterness without being overpowering. Vienna adds a touch of malt richness while not outshining the hop bill.
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.
Our homage to the easy drinking beers brewed in Mexico (para nuestros parientes y amigos). These brews were inspired by and, in some cases, originally brewed by German and Czech brewmasters. The use of Midwest corn really brings this beer home for us.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Light-colored Scottish style ale. Malty with very low hop presence. This ale is "The Base" beer for our ever-popular Sesquisippi bourbon barrel-aged beer. A great beer in its own right.
Scottish strong style ale with a chewy malt base, the flavor and aroma hops are from our friends across the river at Nebraska Hop Yards. We liked the earthy fruity character these add to this brew. Aged for a year in 10 yr. old Buffalo Trace Mash #2 barrels which added vanilla, spice, and bourbon character.
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.
American strong style ale with a chewy malt base that includes two types of caramel malt from Chile plus dark malts from Germany. The bittering hops are pronounced enough for balance, flavor and aroma hops are from Germany and the Pacific Northwest. This ale was aged in IA Distilling BBLs for 12 months.
Orange Fruited Sour
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.
This is our traditional cream ale with peaches & vanilla. This style of beer was America’s answer to the straw-colored lagers that began arriving with German immigrants. We use 2 row pale and pilsner malts to refine the character of our brew. Unfiltered, clear pale from lagering; a small amount of yeast or protein haze is normal.
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.
