    Malt sweetness and smooth lager yeast notes make this Spanish-style lager the perfect easy-drinking beer you’ve been longing for on a hot summer day.
  • Chilton's Last Call Amber 5.3 %
    A collaboration with our friends at Briess Malt to say good bye to their 120 year old malt house in Chilton, Wisconsin and celebrate the full opening of the new Manitowoc operation. The Last Call malt, a rich pale malt, and the Caramel malt in this brew were the last produced at the historic location.
  • Dirty Bastard 8.5 %
    A Scotch Ale, dark ruby in color and brewed with seven varieties of imported malts. Complex in finish, with hints of smoke and peat, paired with a malty richness and a right hook of hop power to give it the bad attitude that a beer named Dirty Bastard has to live up to. Ain’t for the wee lads

  • Mosaic Promise 6.6 %
    Mosaic hops and Golden Promise malt are showcased in Detroit Head Brewer Natalie’s favorite Founders seasonal brand, recently revived on her small batch pilot brewhouse. The versatility of Mosaic’s unique aroma and robust depth of Golden Promise barley comprise this clean, rich, golden beer. We can brew complex beers with the best of them, but also recognize that there is often beauty in simplicity.
  • Nitro Oatmeal Stout 4.5 %
    Traditional Irish-style stout on Nitro
  • Pilsner 5.5 %
    Always brewing to taste and rarely to style, Pilsner is the culmination of our love of American hops and appreciation of easy-drinking styles. Where traditional Pilsners typically feature European Noble hops, our version celebrates some of our favorite American varieties: Chinook, Centennial, Cascade and Crystal. Crisp and bright, with notes of citrus, this Pilsner is refreshingly untraditional.

Soft, juicy peaches, rich Madagascar vanilla beans and a touch of spicy cinnamon mingle with sweet biscuit malts and honey to create a sensational sipping experience!
  • Breakfast Stout 8.3 %
    This is the Coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flacked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.
  • Curmudgeon 9.8 %
    Think classic seafaring ports, local pubs and weathered old fishermen. This old ale is brewed with molasses and an insane focus on the malt bill, then oak-aged. The result is a rich, malty delight that’s deceptively smooth and drinkable.
  • Geodos Lemon Herbal Wheat 6.2 %
    Third episode in our staff request series, this idea comes from the lovely brain of Detroit server Olivia Card, who’s inspiration was “…an Earl Grey gin mixed with lemonade.” Geodos, named after her Druid, lizardfolk character in D&D, delivers this request with a delightfully refreshing Radler-like experience of lemony citrus, floral lavender, and herbaceous Earl Grey tea against the backdrop of smooth soft wheat malt. Perfect for crushing pool or table side this summer!
  • Pralines & Dreams (Coffee Cream Ale) 6 %
    Brewed with Great Lakes Coffee’s Guatemala roast, this coffee cream ale features soft notes of coconut to create a light, well-balanced blend of sweet malt and roastiness reminiscent of a delicate praline latte.

    One year barrel-aged KBS blended with and aged on Ferris Coffee & Nuts’ Frangelic Coffee to add a sweet hazelnut-like flavor.
