Detroit taproom as of October 27th at 11:42 am:

Class 1

  • Great Lakes Nitro Coffee <0.5 %
    Nitro cold brew features the effervescence of pressurized nitrogen infusion, thereby forming a creamy head and a shower of cascading bubbles. The result is creamy, mellowed coffee flavor with a smooth and silky mouthfeel.
  • $3 Pint Special - Mas Agave Premium Hard Seltzer - Lime 4.5 %
    Más Agave Premium Hard Seltzer is a refreshing foray into the future made with blue agave nectar, cane sugar, real fruit juice and a dash of sea salt for good measure.
  • All Day IPA 4.7 %
    Our classic session IPA
  • Centennial IPA 7.2 %
    The Standard by which all IPAs are measured...and most found wanting.
  • Dagon Dark Lager 5 %
    Creeping and crawling into the taproom exclusive scene comes this devilishly delicious dark lager, a staff suggestion from Detroit jack-of-all-trades Rico Phillips! His desire was for a roasty yet light-bodied lager so refreshingly evil and deceptively dark it will taste like a crisp October night in a glass.
  • Desiree Of Sunshine 6.6 %
    This West Coast White IPA is brewed with wheat and rye and double dry-hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo hops. It gets a citrus bump from orange peel and the Belgian yeast adds a unique twist with hints of banana and spice. This recipe was designed and brewed with us by Desiree Duzich, our Southern California Sales Rep who was a finalist in this year’s homebrew contest, and her boyfriend Bryce.
  • 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
  • Kolsch 5.2 %
    This Southern German style ale from Cologne is fermented at cooler temperatures like a Pilsner or Lager. Crisp and clean, this light bodied brew showcases subtle hop notes at the finish.
  • Nitro Oatmeal Stout 4.5 %
    Traditional Irish-style stout on Nitro
  • Oktoberfest 6.0 %
    Blink and you’ll think you’re in Bavaria. We went all in on tradition with our Oktoberfest, using imported German malts and hops with a beautiful lager yeast for the finish. Pours a gorgeous copper hue with a rich, malty and slightly sweet backbone. Our version is akin to the beer poured in the early days of Oktoberfest and, yes, it adheres to the Reinheitsgebot. Prost!
  • Red’s Rye IPA (Draft) 6.6 %
    The overwhelming employee and mug club favorite, this rye-based red IPA showcases the best that Amarillo hops have to offer!
  • Scarlet Dawn 5.1 %
    It’s the dawn of an all-new session IPA! Brewed with an array of malts to provide a deep crimson hue, Scarlet Dawn Session Red IPA employs a range of hops that lend a floral aroma and keep the bitterness to a minimum. It’s straightforward, session-able, and will treat you right – morning, noon or night.
  • Solid Gold 4.4 %
    Our take on a classic, Solid Gold is a drinkable premium lager brewed with the highest quality ingredients.
  • Unraveled IPA 6.6 %
    Brewed with some of our favorite American hops, and dry hopped with traditional hop pellets along with lupulin powder, Unraveled IPA is incredibly flavorful and aromatic.

Class 2

  • 4 Giants IPA 9.2 %
    4 Giants Imperial IPA boasts aggressive bitterness balanced by a malty, sweet backbone while huge aromatics come courtesy of the seven American hop varieties.
  • Breakfast Stout 8.3 %
    The Coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and two types of coffee, it has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped by a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.
  • Cherry Fruit Jam 7.4 %
    A wheat beer jam-packed with natural cherry fruit juice.
  • Crazy Hazy IPA 7.3 %
    You want it, you got it! Candy-like sweetness, explosive hop aromatics, and haze for days, this “beer” is sure to please anyone who would prefer that all IPAs came straight from New England. Featuring all the crazy hops and all the hazy malts. Pure insanity!
  • Founders Keepers Cider Saison 6.3 %
    A one-of-a-kind seasonal feature, this keeper is a fusion of fresh apple cider sourced from our friends at Blake’s Orchard and a classic Belgian Saison. Like stepping through an apple orchard on a bright dewy morning.
  • Harvest Ale 7.6 %
    An impossibly aromatic and bright IPA bursting with fresh pine, melon and citrus notes. Our ode to the beauty that is the wet, American hop.
  • Rubaeus 5.7 %
    Pure Raspberry Ale
  • Nitro Rubaeus 5.7 %
    Pure Raspberry Ale infused with Nitrogen for a smooth, creamy, finish

Class 3

  • Backwoods Bastard 11 %
    A Scotch Ale aged in Oak Bourbon Barrels. Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts, a bit of earthy spice, and a scintilla of dark fruit. It’s a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.
  • CBS 11.3 %
    Rich maple syrup, roasted coffee and velvety chocolate meld together in what can only be described as a transcendental drinking experience.
  • Nitro CBS 11.3 %
    Rich maple syrup, roasted coffee and velvety chocolate meld together in what can only be described as a transcendental drinking experience while the addition of nitrogen imparts a soft, creamy mouthfeel.
  • KBS 12 %
    KBS is a big imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolate and then bourbon barrel-aged to perfection. Incredibly silky and full-bodied with notes of vanilla, cocoa, roasted coffee, and charred oak.
  • Nitro KBS 12 %
    This beer taught us that patience truly is a virtue. Nitro KBS is a big imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolate and then bourbon barrel-aged to perfection – running it through nitrogen gives a creamy, light texture that has to be tasted to believed. Incredibly silky and full-bodied with notes of vanilla, cocoa, roasted coffee and charred oak.
  • KBS Cinnamon Vanilla Cocoa 12 %
    Here’s one for the cocoa lovers: KBS Cinnamon Vanilla Cocoa – the sumptuous, deep coffee and chocolate flavors of KBS rise to the next level with a swirl of cinnamon and a hint of vanilla to create a sweet-but-not-too-sweet barrel-aged drinking experience. It’s a whole new spin on KBS that’s sure to sweeten your spirits.
  • KBS Espresso 12 %
    KBS gets an extra oomph by getting aged on espresso beans after being removed from barrels, resulting in a snappy coffee twist on our classic barrel-aged beer. Who says you can't start your day with a barrel-aged stout?
  • Mas Agave Clasica Grapefruit 9.7 %
    Imperial gose brewed with agave and sea salt and aged in tequila barrels... then infused with fresh grapefruit juice
  • Mas Agave Clasica Lime 10 %
    Imperial Lime Gose brewed with Agave and aged in Tequila barrels.
  • Nemesis - Bottleshop Series Installment #1 11.2 %
    What’s your Nemesis? Ours is a barleywine-style ale brewed with roasted malts and no shortage of hops for a pleasantly bitter, booming flavor. Pouring with a slight and subtle mahogany hue and a multitude of flavors that melt on your tongue – this is one Nemesis you’ll feel good about keeping around.
  • Velvet Rush 11.1 %
    A bourbon barrel-aged brown ale with notes of coffee, chocolate and vanilla extract. Milk sugar aids in weaving together this complex tapestry of flavors to create a sipping experience that really ties the room together.
