Beers on Tap
A Hop Bomb so powerfully delicious that we had to keep it secret until now. 13 different hop varieties were carefully selected to successfully detonate your taste buds and release an explosion of flavor. Expect a low malt profile blown to pieces by hop flavors of citrus, pineapple, peach, tangerine, passion fruit, and grapefruit.
This rich, extremely smooth, Russian Imperial Stout is brewed exclusively with hops grown on the Leelanau Peninsula, espresso from Nella’s So Good Coffee in Empire and accented with cacao nibs and vanilla beans from Suttons Bay Trading Co.
Smooth and creamy. Dark-roasted coffee aromas and flavors of espresso and semi-sweet chocolate. A healthy dose of flaked oatmeal adds to the creamy body.
Light bready, biscuity malt backbone. Loaded with dank American hops.
Light and medium toasted malts are laid upon a sweet, caramel base to contribute flavors of freshly baked biscuits and toasted bread. Just enough Leelanau County hops are added to balance the sweetness, making this a very drinkable and enjoyable ale.
Sweet caramel malts and hops go head to head for control of this imperial Red Ale. The hops bring flavors and aromas of pine, passion fruit, peach, mango and citrus. The malts fall short and leave the sweet caramel as just an afterthought. Welcome to hop heaven.
Malty flavors of caramel, biscuits, and sourdough bread are blended carefully with just the right touch of roasted English chocolate malts
Originally from Holland, MI then later residing in Chicago, it was time for us to journey back to Michigan and create a very unique four-seasons Microbrewery and Beer Garden in beautiful Northern Michigan. With family ties to Suttons Bay, it was the perfect location to both embrace the local beer culture while also embracing the outdoors. We’re two brothers with a passion for consistent and fresh tasting craft beer.
