Brule River Red: An amber, moderately hoppy craft brew with caramel, malty flavor! Light hop aroma from Cascade hops complements the caramel sweetness and hop flavor/bitterness can linger somewhat into the medium to full finish. BRR is made with a blend of malted barley and several caramel malts. 6.7% ABV

Porter School Porter: A substantial, malty dark beer with complex and flavorful dark character. Medium dark malt aroma with a slight burnt character! Sweetness derived by using locally sourced maple syrup priot to kegging! 6.7% ABV

Krystal Koelsch: Light in body with a soft mouthfeel and a straw yellow color. It has a spicy, Herbal Noble hop biterness that has a slight to medium assertiveness – less than a Pilsner but not by much. Somewhat fruity with a crisp dry-ish finish. Clean and clear with great drinkability! 5.0% ABV
