Duluth Coffee Pale Ale

 COLD PRESS COFFEE PALE ALE 5.2%

EARTH RIDER BREWING // SUPERIOR, WI

Holy synergy, Batman! One of our favorite local breweries (remember all the fun we had at Cranberry Fest?!), partnered with our favorite local coffee roaster (remember all the coffee you’ve had here, ever?!), and remember how we make cold brew coffee and have it on tap?! Well, all of those great things exist in every pint of this beer. It’s at once flavorful and distinctive, but very drinkable. The golden hue, and mellow biscuit like malt body set the stage for everyone’s favorite aroma, fresh coffee! Just like what we pour on line #8, it contains cold brewed coffee in an expertly balanced amount. This beer is a symbol of what we love about what we do: collaborations of the highest quality. Drink it in Punks!

All Day IPA

4.7% ABV

FOUNDERS BREWING CO // GRAND RAPIDS, MI

Among the trends over the last decade in the IPA category, one that seems to have largely come and gone is the “session IPA”. Founders however, has made it into one of their flagship beers, and would be now considered a style defining example. Session refers to a lower strength beer, still full flavored, but easier to enjoy several over the course of, well…a session I suppose. The term comes from the English brewing tradition where the pub is a social institution, and milder strength beers are better for facilitating hours of conversation and revelry. Of course, this is an American take on the whole thing, with no shortage of citrus forward hops, though not overwhelming. The biscuity malt body is enough to support the hops, but leads to a very clean refreshing finish, definitely living up to its namesake as a beer you could drink All Day.

Créme Brûlée

IMPERIAL STOUT W/ LACTOSE AND VANILLA 10%

SOUTHERN TIER BREWING // LAKEWOOD, NY

One of the founding members of the current “dessert stout” category. This jet-black, viscous beauty is not for the weak of palate. Gooey chocolate flows forth riding an undercurrent of vanilla and toasted caramel. You’ll find this beer listed under the sipping chapter, unless you have a massive sweet tooth or a liver made of steel. Grab a goblet of this most inky goodness, and treat yourself to a pour of dessert.
