Flagship  Beers  (Available Year Around)

Big Island Blond Ale- 33 IBU, 5.5% ABV

  • Smooth without harsh bitterness

Bridge Jumper IPA- 67 IBU, 7.5% ABV

A malt-forward IPA dry hopped with a shipload of raw, whole hops. This IPA defines “extreme balance”. Malty sweetness on the front end with a huge hop bitterness to finish clean.

  • Hints of Papaya, Passion fruit, lots of floral hops
  • Dry hopped with nearly ½lb of Chinook hops per keg
  • Nice hop bite with no sharp, lingering bitterness
  • Smooth mouth feel

Bitteschlappe Brown Ale- 25 IBU, 6.8% ABV

Our traditional Munich-style brown ale features a medium body, with brisk carbonation and a malty sweetness that carries the beer to a soft finish.

  • Medium-bodied, smooth, dark ale
  • Flavors of caramel, toffee, and cocoa in the finish
  • Robustly malted with lots of Vienna malt, lightly hopped with German hops
  • Very easy drinking—brown is a color, not a flavor

  • Moderate mouth feel

 

Seasonal Beers  – Larger batches made once per year

Scofflaw Russian Imperial Stout- 75  IBU, 10.6% ABV

Scofflaw – Named after the lawless drinker whom “scoffed at the law” while imbibing during the prohibition.   The beer has a deep, sweet malt backbone with dark fruit under tones that sustain and linger thru the mellow hop bitterness.   Silky smooth mouthfeel with a wonderful warming effect.

Spresso Coffee Milk Stout- 25 IBU, 4.6% ABV 

Made with coffee from UP Coffee Roasters this brew has the nose of a chocolate covered espresso bean. Let it pour over your tongue as notes of espresso and dark chocolate tantalize your taste buds. This one is NOT to be missed! Coffee lovers, chocolate lovers, beer lovers- everyone will love this brew. 

Oarlock Oat Stout- On Nitro! – 22 IBU. 6.6% ABV

This beer is named after the device on a row boat that keeps the oars in place, ensuring a straight path for the operator. Oar Lock Oat Stout aims to do the same thing with the drinker’s palate. It features a great roasty flavor, with subtle dark chocolate and a very light smokiness. The oats give this beer a very dry finish and a hearty mouthfeel. Although it’s not a bitter beer, it balances out the big malt flavor just perfectly. 

Ginger Peach Kettle Sour – 5 IBU, 4.5% ABV  

This kettle soured ale is brewed with fresh peach & ginger adding to its light and tart profile. The effervescence and low IBU makes this brew a perfect year round sour.   

Cross Czech Pilsner – 35 IBU ,  5.5% ABV

Slightly bittered with Northern Brewer hops and flavored with traditional German hop, this light and crisp pilsner is a perfect thirst quencher in any season. This brew is a great choice for the light beer drinker as well as those who appreciate a true pilsner.  Light bodied with a light straw hue. 

Shattered Solstice Ale – 15 IBU, 6.5% ABV 

A worldly inspired, locally desired spiced Amber Ale to celebrate the return of longer days. Ginger (India), orange peel (Spain), coriander (Turkey), Egyptian Chamomile Flower and Belgian Candi Sugar create a robust spiced ale that will warm you up and shatter your expectations. 

Minnehahop- 63 IBU, 6.0% ABV

Minnehahop IPA is appealing for both hop heads and light IPA drinkers alike. Fresh and citrusy aromas of pineapple, lemon/lime, passion fruit & mango finishing with just a touch of caramel sweetness, like a dusting of toasted coconut. Quenching and bright.

Excelsior Golden Ale – 20 IBU, 5.2% ABV

After several stabs at developing a recipe they liked, Excelsior’s brewers finally found what they were looking for; golden ale bold enough to provide a counterpoint to our flagship beer, Big Island Blond. Select hop varieties and brewing techniques produce an ale that is packed with flavor but not very bitter. Minnehaha Golden Ale combines the refreshment of lager with the hoppier, more citrusy qualities of ale. A pint worth coming back to! 

Woodrift Belgian Quad – 19 IBU, 8.5% ABV

Our friend and taproom regular, Jerry, has helped us create and brew this one of a kind Belgian Quad. Vienna, munich, and blend of dark roasted malt paired with amarillo hops, 10 lbs of blackened raisins, homemade rock candi sugar and Belgian abbey yeast. Full bodied with a rich malty palate. Nothing better than having those that support us have a hand in creating new and exciting beers to share with our guests.
