Shattered Solstice Ale – 15 IBU, ABV6.5%

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.
Hop heads and Fonzie lovers rejoice- using the process of adding hops each minute for almost 2 hours this brew is hoppy, smooth and medium bodied with a robust ABV. The process smooths out that hop flavor we all love and seek.
Cross Czech Pilsner IBU 35, ABV 5.5%
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.
Bridge Jumper on Nitro – 67 IBU, 7.5% ABV
Same flagship Bridge Jumper you know and love but pushed with nitrogen to create a creamy mouthfeel with a beer that slowly cascades through your pint.
Chai Kolsch – ABV 5.2% IBU 18
Kolsch beers are typically golden, top-fermented style native to Köln, Germany. The traditional Kolsch style beer has a clean, dry flavor profile with moderate bitterness and high effervescence. The brewers at Birch’s on the Lake and Excelsior Brewing Company decided to stray from tradition and spice it up a bit! Sweet and spiced, featuring hints of cinnamon, pepper, cardamom and ginger this light and sessionable Kolsch is pleasantly surprising.
Scofflaw Russian Imperial Stout- IBU 75, ABV 10.6%
This beer named after the Prohibition term for someone who drank illegally (scoffing at the law) has a deep rich roast flavor, a bit dry and sure to please. Notes of dark fruit including plum, roasted nuts, and a full body. We encourage you to stop by and try this new beer on tap! This beer takes winter warmer to a whole new level.
Row-Bust Porter – IBU 38, ABV 4.8%
Dark-Brown color. Mild aromas and flavors of dried tropical fruits, melted toffee, clay, and brown sugar with a supple, frothy, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, engaging, medium-length finish with accents of nut brittle, mocha cream, sprouts, and green coffee. A very nice porter with high drinkability.
Gideon’s Red Ale- 5.6%, 45 IBU
Named for 1800’s Excelsior-area farmer Peter Gideon (and therefore a bay in Lake Minnetonka), the first to develop a variety of apple resistant to the MN winters- this bright hopped up Red has a citrusy nose, slight bitterness, with refreshing crisp and zesty flavors.
Peanut Butter Stout 5.6% IBU 33
With just the slightest hint of roasted nuttiness this stout does not overwhelm the pallet with sweetness. Hints of dark chocolate shine through on this full bodied brew. Both seasoned beer drinkers and newbies rejoice! Who doesn’t like a little candy with their beer?
EBC Kolsch – ABV 5.4% IBU 24
Kolsch beers are typically golden, top-fermented style native to Köln, Germany. The traditional Kolsch style beer has a clean, dry flavor profile with moderate bitterness and high effervescence.
