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

FOXXINE #5

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 Huckleberry and lemon extract

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.

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.

Big Ed's Dark HopYard 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.

MUTED MIC IPA

Brewed in the West Coast style of a nice bitter backbone complemented by a high quality base malt this beer leans heavy into the hops. On the hop side the addition of New Zealand Motueka and bergamot hops brings an aroma of lemon zest and tropical fruit with a strong tropical and orange taste.

BOOTS ON THE MOON

Boots on the Moon 2024. Brewed in the style of the big and boozy Belgian Dark quads this beer comes in at a respectable 9% abv. On the malt side we layered several Belgian crystal malts on top of a Belgian pilsner to give the beer a slight bready character with some stone fruit and burnt sugar overtones. On the hop side the magnum provides a smooth bitterness with a slight noble aroma coming from the Hersbrucker. Finally the yeast add some more stone fruit character and a hint of coriander spice to give this slow sipping beer complexity from the first sip to the last.

The caraaroma adds depth to the amber color along with some dried fruit notes. On the hop side there is a faint noble aroma from the hallertau.
