But, there are times when fleshy black beer is the only thing that offers the necessary weight. Visiting your uncle's machine shop to thread some pipe before hitting a dirt track sprint car raceâ€¦.? You might want to digest some Lead Feather Black Ale.
The might of big malts and rival hop use give Lead Feather capital dark properties. 6% ABV gives you time, but not at the expense of content.
Lead Feather Black Ale will live in the line up all year. You'll find it on draft right now in our Tap Room and soon in bars around town. Come March, we'll load it into our favorite 16 ounce aluminum vessel. Find one and work it into your life.
This Double Brown Ale, made with Carabrown Malt, was created to showcase one of Briess Malting Company's new products. Although it was thought to be a onetime brewing event, this beer is now one of our most recent successes. Sweet malty aromas mingle with prominent toasted caramel and toffee flavors. This beer finishes pleasingly dry, with a bouquet of hops that have slight fruity qualities.
This is the namesake for one of our brewer's favorite shop dogs. 'Ol Bender is a hound that is relaxed and calm in nature but can also pack a powerful wallop if your not careful. This beer has a biscuity nose...but that makes sense, as 'Ol Bender loves dog biscuits as a treat too. Hoist one for the hound!
Bona Fide Imperial Stout is a collaborative effort with Goshen Coffee, a local 100% fair trade coffee roaster. This beer is big, bold, and in your face. Bona Fide pours dark as night with a smooth velvety mouthfeel. Aromas of espresso, dark chocolate, roasted malt, with nuances of vanilla. Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years.
Selected as a benchmark for the Beer Judge Certification Program used in all American based beer judging. Centennial IPA has quickly become the IPA of choice. Pour yourself a pint of this complex flavorful ale and bask in the frothy head's floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This ale's sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.
Collaboration with Cigar City Brewing. Well balanced tropical notes and a hint of stone fruit. Very mild bitterness on the finish.
A hopped up IPA that always maintains the same consistent grain bill. However, we craft our IPA with a new twist each time it is expertly brewed!
As we know, hop varietals are growing rapidly and we are always attempting to take advantage of them. Our "Craft'd" IPA will always change based on which hops we want to use at the time. Brewer David loves the opportunity to experiment with the various versions! This current batch is Cascade hopped and Chinook dry hopped
Whenever Craft'd is on, make sure you give it a try!
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Donâ€™t worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.
A play on our flagship IPA, this beer features an aromatic menagerie of tropical hops and tangerine zest. Wraps up with a crisp, bitter finish.
This gem is honored with the name of the hop plant, Humulus lupulus, and is Short's best selling India Pale Ale. It has such an abundant amount of hops that it sensually provides a punch to the palate. The numerous hop varieties used in its creation render a delicious bitter taste and enticing citrus aroma. The hearty malt bill melds with the hops to create a perfect balance.
This IPA is brewed with Centennial, Cascade, Chinook, and Nugget hops, all from our friends at Hop Heads Farms in Hickory Corners, MI.
Hop Head Farms, co-founded by one of our investors, Nunzino Pizza, provides quality Midwest hops to everyone from professional craft brewers to homebrewers.
The Sculpin is a testament to our humble beginnings as Home Brew Mart. It showcases bright flavors and aromas of apricot, peach, mango & lemon. The lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops.
This delicious Ballast Point Ale won a gold medal at the World Beer Cup 2010 in the International Pale Ale category. The Sculpin fish has poisonous spikes on it's fins that can give a strong sting.
Ironically, the meat from a Sculpin is considered some of the tastiest. Something that has a sting but tastes great, sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale.
While our beers are many and diverse, yet unified by overarching boldness, India pale ales are our undeniable bread and butter. We've brewed many over the past 18 years, from double-down bitter bombs to piney session sippers. Whether it's big IBUs or a precise ABV, there's usually a target we're shooting for. The same is true of this, our latest IPA, but we gave zero thought to any acronyms. This one was all about packing as much unique and, you guessed it, delicious flavor into a glass as humanly possible, regardless of oomph or octane. This intensely citrusy, beautifully bitter beer is worthy of the simple-yet-lordly title of Stone Delicious IPA. Lemondrop and El Dorado hops combine to bring on a magnificent lemon candy-like flavor that's balanced by hop spice. It's unlike anything we've tasted in nearly two decades of IPA experimentation, and another lupulin-laced creation we're excited to introduce to hopheads everywhere.
An "India Pale Ale" by definition is highly hopped and high in alcohol - you'll find our Stone India Pale Ale to be true to style with a huge hop aroma, flavor and bitterness throughout.

Drumroll is an unfiltered American Pale Ale. A bold, juicy, citrus-inspired and tropically hop forward APA that looks and tastes like pineapple, orange, mango, and grapefruit.

Good things often come in pairs, such as two lines of a verse, lovers, and cozy socks. Our Belgian Single, â€œCouplet,â€ is the first in a pair of beers that weâ€™re quite excited about. This low ABV, easy drinking beer is brewed with Huell Melon hops that give off distinct honeydew melon and strawberry notes to go along with the clean, bready Pilsner malts and Belgian yeast. The second beer in this pair is funkifying in oak barrels with brettanomyces. They may be apart for now, but theyâ€™ll be together again soon enough!
Fruity and spicy characteristics from the Belgian yeast and the citric and tropical qualities from the hops

American Wheat Ale with Cherries & Pomegranate.

This cider was specially made for a draft customer in Grand Rapids, MI.. We are using over 4 lbs. of homemade cinnamon roasted pecans in a 30 gallon batch of this limited edition cider to bring you Totally Roasted. You will notice that soaking pecans in cider brings a unique texture and taste to the drink. We use cinnamon and vanilla during the roasting process and follow that up by adding whole cut vanilla beans to the cider. These subtle tastes certainly make this a cider all itâ€™s own.
A British Pale Ale never tasted so fresh. We challenge our good friends across the pond to match this one. We've honored the traditions of the great British Pale brewers of Burton-on-Trent using our patented Firestone Union oak barrels. You're left with a mild blend of vanilla and toasted oak flavor touched with an elegant hint of English noble hops. DBA is the flagship of our company and wildly popular.
The most refreshing dark beer you could ever imagine this side of Dublin! Low alcohol and roasted barley keep it clean and flavorful.

Imperial IPA with Blood Orange & Guava
Have you read the description for the regular Crooked Tree yet? Well this beer is almost the same just double. We actually took the Crooked Tree recipe and doubled all of the ingredients except the water, just the way a DOUBLE should be made. Big hops balanced with tons of malt give this beer a huge body. Although this beer is as cool as "the Fonz" when first purchased, it gets really mellow and smooth with some age. After a year or two stored in a cool dark place you'll notice the heavy caramel and malt flavors are trying to sneak past the hops, they're just not fast enough. This beer is hugely delicious so it will need your undivided attention (the chores can wait....trust us). 98 IBU's
To our hop ranchers, who coax and cultivate our enticing and flavorful hops, we raise this glass.

Maharaja is derived from the sanskrit words mahat, - "great" and rajan - "king". Much like its namesake, this imperial IPA is regal, intense and mighty. With hops and malts as his servants, he rules both with a heavy hand. The Maharaja flaunts his authority over a deranged amount of hops: tangy, vibrant and pungent along with an insane amount of malted barley - fashioning a dark amber hue and exquisite malt essence. This newest Avery Dictator completes the "Dictator Series" joining the likes of The Kaiser & The Czar. Be aware that The Maharaja is a limited release only available for the summer. Welcome to his kingdom!
This new IPA rises above the rest. Weâ€™ve developed many IPA recipes in our R&D program, but right from the tank, our Manta Ray Double IPA was a winner. Aromas of fresh, citrusy tangerine, melon and light pine leap from the beer and linger over a smooth finish. Like its namesake, this brew can sneak up on you â€“ a big beer without a bite.
Mojo is My Co-Pilot combines flavors of tropical fruits and cotton candy, and is as vibrant in taste as the label is colorful. We used Mosaic hops to yield fresh hop aromas from kettle and dry-hop additions, and kept the alcohol nicely situated in the background (rather than the foreground!) of this beer. Fruity-ester flavor is high, and the intention of this beer is to be consumed fresh as aged and oxidative characters effect the brightness of the hops.
Big, juicy and citrus aroma. Comes out a bright golden hue. With throwing in Mosaic and Mandarina Bavaria hops, this beer has a luscious mouthfeel. Add in oak, vanilla and slight smoke nuances and you have a winner. We added Caramel malt to smooth out the end and really balance out the beer. The dry, lingering will keep you asking for more!
This beer is intended to be our interpretation, paying homage, to the true west coast style. Expect big, bold and bracing bitterness with tropical fruit notes of mango and grapefruit. Taste the bold and resinous flavor from massive dry hopping. But you better be careful 'cause this brew will take you from 0-100 real fast!
Malty beer with a notable toasty flavor derived from lightly roasted malt. Slight fruit and hop accents add to the overall complexity
A divine brew for me and you. This heavenly brew is sure to satisfy all who you offer it toâ€¦ and by all, we mean ALL. Two or twenty, be sure to keep enough on hand lest you anger the gods.
An American Wheat Ale, Gumballhead is named in honor of the underground comic book cat created by Rob Syers. Initially a seasonal summer beer, now brewed year round due to demand. This beer helped redefine American Wheat Beers. Brewed with Amarillo Hops and a generous portion of American red wheat, Gumballhead has a complex hop aroma with notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, marmalade and peach. These flavors combined with low bitterness make Gumballhead a refreshing American Wheat Beer that doesn't suck.
A striking, robust porter full of warmth and chocolate malt. Eugene is a robust porter named after Eugene V. Debs, an American union leader and activist who led the Pullman Railroad strike in 1894. An assortment of Belgian specialty malts form a complex structure of toasted grain and caramel flavors. Dark chocolate malt makes this porter black as night and infuses it with its distinct intense, chocolate essence.
This porter is designed to squarely hit you between the eyes like a hammer all the while giving you a sweet peanut-buttery kiss. It was designed to warm you up from the inside-out.
Pours silky black with a creamy tan head. The nose is sweet with strong chocolate and caramel malt presence. No absence of hops gives Founders' robust porter the full flavor you deserve and expect. Cozy like velvet. It's a lover, not a fighter.
Crystal and Chinook full-hopped character, dark orange hued in color, light on the nose but has a nice spicy/sweet finish. Caramel sweet maltiness with peppery spiciness from the rye. This is the beer that makes "Lincoln-Way" famous!
Traditional style Strong Scotch Ale. Malty aroma and taste with a clean, smooth finish. Deep copper to brown color. Slightly sweet with a full body. Pronounced malty caramel and roasted malt flavor as emphasized by the use of Munich malts. Finishes with hints of cherry smoke.
We introduced 90 Shilling, our flagship beer, at our opening party in 1989. For a while, we'd been wondering what would happen if we lightened up the traditional Scottish ale? The result is an irresistibly smooth and delicious medium-bodied amber ale. The name 90 Shilling comes from the Scottish method of taxing beer. Only the highest quality beers were taxed 90 Shillings. A shilling was a British coin used from 1549 to 1982. We think you'll find this original ale brilliantly refreshing, and worth every shilling.
Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts, a bit of earthy spice, and a scintilla of dark fruit. It's a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.
Drinks as a traditional Irish dry stout with a bit of briny character because of the oysters used in the boil. It is dark in color and rich on the tongue with a great mouthfeel.
Huge tropical and stone fruit hop aroma, carmel malt
We brewed this especially bitter ale in dedication to all the world's would-be astronauts, in remembrance of the 2005 St. Patrick's Day Massacre on the Brewery Party Grounds and also in joyous celebration of our 20-day suspension that following January. Do the crime. Do the time. Get the bragging rights. Cheers!
A cinfully delectable wine with the sweet flavors of honey, apples, and cinnamon.

Great body and mouthfeel from the unfermented sugars adds a nice sweetness that counters the roasted character of the malts. Smoothy, roasty and chocolaty are everything you should expect from this delicious chocolate milk stout.
Dark & delicious, America's great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be.
