Our Beers

Our taproom will feature 12 beers on draught including the following lineup made right here in our brewery, along with several guest taps featuring other great beers from our region.

Kula Wheat ~ Golden Ale with Pineapple

Kula Wheat ~ Golden Ale with Pineapple

Kula (Hawaiian for “Golden”) perfectly describes our American Wheat Ale.  Crisp and refreshing, this golden wheat is lightly hopped with Wisconsin Tettnanger and fermented with 125 fresh, ripe pineapples for a well-balanced yet interesting twist. Kula Wheat makes a perfect pairing with a pizza made in Broken Tree’s wood-fired oven and delivered straight to you in our taproom.  Cheers!

ABV: 5.6%       IBU: 17       Hops: Tettnanger

Quicksand – Oatmeal Brown Sugar Stout

Quicksand – Oatmeal Brown Sugar Stout

When we first brewed this beer, we stuck a thermometer in the mash to measure the temp and with all the oatmeal- the mash was so thick that the thermometer didn’t sink- it stuck straight up. A minute later when we weren’t looking the mash swallowed the thermometer up like Quicksand and the name was born (luckily it wasn’t a mercury thermometer!)  Bold flavors of sweet brown sugar & rich dark roasted barley.  A huge dose of toasted, flaked oats give this beer its velvety-smooth finish. 6.7% abv

“Mile of Munich” Dunkel

“Mile of Munich” Dunkel

Smooth, light, and malty, this German-style lager is loaded with Munich malt and rounded out with specialty roasted malts giving it the characteristic dark color and mild toastiness. This beer has helped convert a lot of people who thought they hated “dark beer”!

“Boundary Waters” Canadian-Style Lager

“Boundary Waters” Canadian-Style Lager

Crisp, clean, and refreshingly nostalgic- Boundary Waters Lager rides the Canadian border with a soft malt sweetness and a perfectly balanced crispy noble hop finish. This style of lager is unique in that it relies on Canadian Brewers’ maltose (and not rice or corn) to deliver clean, smooth body without being overly malty. 5.0% abv

Grapefruit Hefeweizen

Grapefruit Hefeweizen

\

Bavarian-style Session Hefeweizen with a big Ruby Red Grapefruit punch. Red & White wheat malts provide body and sweetness with slight clove notes from our German Hefeweizen yeast strain.  The light sweetness on the front is met quickly with big grapefruit citrus with very light citrus zest bitterness on the finish.  Pair this beer with summer salads, creamy cheeses, rich and savory desserts, particularly chocolate.    3.5% abv      9 ibu

#90 Red – Vienna Lager

#90 Red – Vienna Lager

Exceptionally smooth & malty with a rich toasty sweetness. The deep red color is based on “Number 90”, the signature paint color used by Appleton’s Pierce Manufacturing on their Custom Firefighting Vehicles. This beer’s toasty body is built on to two lightly kilned Vienna Malts from Wisconsin’s Briess Malt.  Enjoy cold, and drink a toast to the dedicated heroes fighting fires!  4.7% abv  18 ibu

Royale Noir – Barrel Aged Saison

Royale Noir – Barrel Aged Saison

French-style Saison aged in French Oak Pinot Noir Barrels. The spicy saison yeast character is balanced with mild sweetness from local honey. Then after months on French Oak, Royale Noir picks up oaky richness and a slight Pinot grape acidity, with red wine fruits coming forward as the beer warms. You’ll be rewarded if you have the patience to let this beer warm a few minutes in the glass.  Available in bomber bottles only.  Next batch and draft release coming in August.

Cranked – Belgian Style Witbier

Cranked – Belgian Style Witbier

“Cranked” is a play on a Belgian -style Witbier (White beer).

True to the style, we used a Belgian yeast strain that brings a fruity and spicy character…

rather than the traditional coriander & orange peel we teamed up with Appleton’s Fava Tea

Company to infuse this beer with a specialty Pomegranate Black Tea blend.  We “cranked”

the beer with this tea which brings a combination of tart fruitiness

and earthy spice. 4.8% abv

 

Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest

Lion’s Tail Oktoberfest! A harvest celebration of rich malty and toasty flavors from 2 specialty Munich malts, lightly kilned Vienna malt, and European-style Pilsner malt.  Marzen-style lager brewed in accordance with the German Purity Law. 5.7% abv

Juice Cloud – New England IPA

Juice Cloud – New England IPA

Bursting with American Citra hops, “Juice Cloud” is a hazy, deliciously juicy New-England Style IPA filled with flavors and aromas of passion fruit, melon, grapefruit, lime, and citrus juices. A soft, pillowy, cloud-like mouthfeel and minimal bitterness will invite you enjoy another; not coat your tongue with resin as some IPA’s can. The flavor and juicy haze are a bit misleading… there is no juice or additives in this beer other than water, malt, oats, yeast, and hops! Recent award-winner at the Wisconsin IPA Festival in Milwaukee. 7.0% abv

Orange is the New Black – IPA

Orange is the New Black – IPA

Black IPA… India Black Ale… Cascadian Dark… call it what you will – this is a citrusy, hoppy, very dark yet smooth ale. Although it is black in color, this beer is not roasty like you might expect. It’s orangey citrus hop flavors come from generous dry-hopping with Wisconsin Chinook and Galena- then we let the beer soak on 30 pounds of fresh California Orange Zest for that clean, citrusy finish. 7.0% abv
