Currently we are serving:

Pure Beer Beer made in the style of Bavarian Purity Law:

Nothing but barley, hops, water and yeast.

Always On Tap

Blonde Ale

ABV: 5.4%
IBU: 26

A light, crisp, Summery beer with just a bit of sass. Gently bittered and dry-hopped (or, as we like to call it, "cold hopped") with a subtle citrusy Cascade, the sweeter malt flavors really shine through.
American Pale Ale

ABV 5.7%
IBU: 75

An easy-drinking Pale Ale with a good bite, but lightly attenuated for plenty of that malty, beery flavor. Good ol' American Cascade adds a subtle citrus note.

Blends nicely into a shandy, if you're looking for a sesson beer.

"Leftenant Pepper's"
English IPA

ABV: 5%
IBU: 65

More evenly balanced than its American counterparts, this delicious blend of Autumn-sown barley -- together with our special blend of old world malts and hops that range from UK to Czechoslovakia in origin -- results in a full-bodied and well balanced IPA full of English flavor with a little black-pepper on the back end. We think you'll like it.
"Pretty Purple"
Porter (#5)

ABV: 5%
IBU: 20

Full of body, with a soft mouth feel, this solid, dependable porter has barely a hint of toasted chocolate. A family favorite since its inception, this is the 5th refinement ("#5") of the brewmaster's favorite recipe of his favorite style.

Darned-good stuff, if we say so, ourselves! (Also, it's not really purple!)

"Fur of the Cat"
West Coast IPA

ABV: 6.1%
IBU: 66

Crisp and hard-hitting, but with a smooth aftertaste. Not quite as "in your face" as some WC-IPAs, but plenty bold enough to hold up against any challenger.

Often on tap

(We do our best, but these beers take time!)

"Lez Böhm"

ABV: 6.6%
IBU: 40

A Bohemian delight, lagered to perfection for no less than 6 months (you can't rush greatness!), this delicious old-world recipe is crystal-clear and full of crisp beer flavor, with barely a whiff of fresh baked biscuits in the aroma. "Nothing but Saaz" gives it a bitterness that doesn't bite and its authentic Czechoslovakian taste.
"Pretty Purple"


ABV: 7.2%
IBU: 20

That same delicious porter that everyone loves, barrel aged over Wayward Whiskey (Venus Spirits, Santa Cruz).

We didn't think PPP could get any better but then... WOW!


Rotating taps -- when it's gone, its gone!

"Not Particulaly"
Hazy (New England) IPA

ABV: 5.5%
IBU: 34

Often called a "hazy" IPA, regardless of the beer's clarity, this is a less bitter, more citrusy, more "juicy" variant IPA that has come to popularity in recent years as an easier drinking alternative to the West Coast IPA.

ABV: 5%
IBU: 39

An old-school Rhineland red ale, now mostly only available in and around Düsseldorf. It has a bit of an interesting history (WIKI)
"Last Mango in Bruges"
Belgian Witbier

ABV: 5.8%
IBU: 18

A light, Summery wheat beer with just a splash of mango fruit for a sweet, refreshing flavor.

ABV: 5%
IBU: 20

A light, somewhat fruity, somewhat citrusy "Summer" beer. This is for all the folk that asked for a "Hefeweizen" (a German-style, herbal wheat beer) when they really wanted a "Witbier" (Belgian style fruity/citrusy farmhouse ale). NOTE: Geoooooooorge!!! contains no wheat. 🙃

$1 from every pint of Geoooooooorge!!! sold goes to fight AML (Leukemia).

Munich Dunkel

ABV: 4.9%
IBU: 22

A deep, soft, rich dark lager made in Munich style. A light flavor of toast and caramel makes this a refreshing change as we head into the cooler months.
"Wee Three Kings"
Pecan Pie
Scotch Ale
("Wee Heavy")

ABV: 10%
IBU: 25

"It tastes like Christmas!" ~Pretty-much everyone who tries it.

In the fermentor,
Aging, conditioning, & etc.
