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.
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.
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. The use of Midwest corn as well as local hops really brings this beer home for us.
The grain bill is designed to provide a bit of haze for the hop aroma compounds to cling to in the beer. Almost no bittering hops; huge amounts of hops after the boil was over as well as in the dry hop. All were chosen for their fruit character. Rio Red Grapefruit juice was generously added to the tank to be fermented with the wort. This is double the amount of juice that I have used before and you can see it as well as taste and smell it. Did you want a salted rim with that glass?
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.
A local favorite ale based on the strong mild ales found in England. Dark rich caramel flavors from the malts are balanced by the earthy Cluster hops, an early American variety, from the Plattsmouth hop yard.
This is our first beer using hops from nearby Loess Hills Hops farm. Chinook is generally a more pine/oil type of hop, but we find a generous amount of peach and tropical fruits in the nose with the hops from the Rose family. Munich & Wheat malts for mouthfeel and head retention as well as using Golden Promise Pale malt. Unfiltered and naturally cloudy from protein, lupulin haze and a small amount of yeast.
This session beer made with 2 row, Munich, and Wheat and fermented with Abbey Yeast is a perfect light summer ale.
This is another shout out to the beers brewed in Mexico, similar to our Guera Nueva but wanted to make this one a little more sessionable, just a little lighter on the malt bill. The use of Midwest corn as well as local hops really brings this beer home for us.
Azacca hops were used in large part. On the palate this hop is particularly spicy, with mango, pineapple and some pine-like and tangerine-esque qualities. A smaller portion of Citra hops with grapefruit, melon, lime, gooseberry, passion fruit and lychee were also used for flavor and aroma. Pineapple juice was added to the fermentor. The milk sugar in the boil and the vanilla beans added during conditioning give this beer a fruit shake like flavor.
This is a nice American Blonde Ale produced by our assistant brewer Mitch during our 1st wort challenge held in May.
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.
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.
