Bitteschlappe 6.5% ABV, 25 IBU
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.
Bridge Jumper IPA 7.5% ABV, 96 IBU
A malt-forward IPA dry hopped with a shipload of raw, whole hops. This IPA defines “extreme balance”. An extreme malty sweetness on the front end with a huge hop bitterness to finish clean.

Big Island Blond 5.2% ABV, 33 IBU
A light-bodied, approachable ale with a perfect balance of malt and hops, accented by a subtle citrus flavor and aroma.  The perfect every day beer.  A patio pounder.

XLCR Pale Ale 5.8% ABV, 50 IBU
An amber-colored American pale ale that combines a moderate, pleasant floral hop aroma with a satisfying malt sweetness from specialty malts.

Docktoberfest 6.2% ABV,
An amber lager brewed with authentic German malts and hops. Marzenbier was first brewed in Bavaria to be stored to last through the seasonal brewing drought. Similarly Minnesotans enjoy it each autumn as we build some final warm-weather memories to last us ’til ice-out.


German fare prepared by the Mason’s all four days of Docktoberfest
