WHITE BOBBER CHERRY APPLE HARD SELTZER
Brewed to follow the current trend in healthy lifestyle drinks we have our very own offering in the seltzer world. White Bobber is based off of the flavors of Door County and features a blend of cherry and apple. Unlike many of the seltzers on the market ours is made with a blend of corn sugar and malt, instead of just corn sugar, giving it a more rounded flavor and smoothing out its edges. With this more complex base we had no need to add sugar back to our seltzer, so it has 1g of sugar per 12oz serving as a finished product

REEL IT IN IPA
Hops are here to stay. Sometimes the higher alcohol levels in a Classic IPA can get in the way of enjoying hops all night long though. With our Reel It In – Session IPA we have the bold character of hops shining from the aroma through the finish. Light golden colored with a slight haze and a fluffy white foam. Bright citrus hop aromas invite into a medium-light bodied ale balanced with a crisp hop flavor.

BIG ED'S DARK HOP YARD ALE
Brewed in celebration of the harvest time. Fresh hops picked at Big Ed’s Hop-yard to be used within 24 hours. The fresh hops vs. the dried hop contain more essential oils that are commonly lost when heat is applied during drying. This year we used 50lbs of fresh hops from the yard. This 2020 batch changes things up a bit from the past by going the route of a Cascadian Dark Ale. This beer pours a dark brown almost black color with a thick white head and nice chocolate note from the cold steeped dark malts. The hops shine through in a unique way in both the flavor and aroma, with a strong green and fresh character that is lost when using pellet hops. Clean & dry finish without being overly hoppy or bitter. This year features a large Centennial and Columbus crop which emphasizes the fruity hop flavor.

Snake Tail Ale
A Classic American-style Amber Ale. The malt character is the main feature while keeping flavors mild. A caramel and toasted malt character are evident from the aroma which leads into the start of the flavor, then finishes clean with a slight sweet caramel malt note left on the palate. Hops are minimal and present for balance only. Body is medium low keeping the finish pleasantly quick along with a bright carbonation.

Nothing Excessive Oatmeal Stout
Brewed to be an easy drinking stout for the summer, this stout takes some cues from a popular Irish stout and leans heavy into the dry and roasty domains. Layered behind that is a light creamy note from a combination of the oats and the nitrogen pour. On the hop side we stayed with the traditional English hops to provide a bitterness to balance the creamy head. Expect this beer to pour dark black, with a tan head.

VIXEN'S VANILLA CREAM ALE
Spiced beers are a tradition for the holiday season. Our holiday spiced beer is Vixen’s Vanilla Cream Ale. This deep golden ale is spiced with premium vanilla from Madagascar, fresh Celyon (mild) and Korintje (traditional) cinnamon, and sweet orange peel. The resulting beer has a slightly fruity, sweet cookie-like nose. The flavor is mostly vanilla, but is balanced by subtle spice of the cinnamon and finishes with the crispness of the orange peel. These spices were added to the kettle during the brewing process and also in the aging tank for increased depth of flavor. Malt character is slight, while hop flavor and bitterness are close to absent. Matching the spice is a little holiday cheer, as this beer rings in at 5.9% abv.

TOTES MA GOATS
Brewed to taste like a classic German Bock with American Craft malt this beer pours malty and smooth, hiding it’s higher abv. This interpretation of a doppelbock sits at the lighter side of the style at only 7.3% abv and drinks with the same ease as a regular bock thanks to a hearty addition of pilsner malt alongside the munich. To this we added Briess’s new American honey malt to add a little honey like sweetness and depth to the malt character. Finally we boiled this beer for two hours, much longer than normal, to achieve the deep amber color and add some maillard flavors. Finally we used a hearty helping of Mount Hood, an American noble esque hop, to add a floral and noble aroma to balance the finish.

$3 FOX FIX | FOXXINE #3
This is a barrel aged sour brewed with lactic bacteria, pediococcus bacteria, and brettanomyces yeast. The particular blend from this barrel is what we refer to as our house “lambic” strain. This wheat based ale was fermented with our house ale yeast strain, and then transferred to oak during the covid shutdown, at which point we added the other cultures. The strains selected for this barrel deliver a citrusy lactic tang from the lactic and pedio, with a hint of funk from the Brett on the back end. The acidity is balanced by a slight bitterness and tannin character from the oak barrel, producing a refreshing and complex sip that keeps you coming back for more. Finally we added Apricot puree
