The Beers

The Beers

Now on Tap

Honey Ginger

Honey Ginger is a deep gold-colored ale, with medium/high carbonation that enhances the fresh ginger aroma. The malt backbone supports the sweetness of the locally sourced honey and the spiciness of the ginger. A strong yet refreshing and deceptively smooth spiced ale.

7.8% ABV • 18 IBU

Grist Case Headrest

We are excited to share our latest collaboration, Grist Case Headrest, which was brewed with our good friends at Casita Cerveceria. This 7% ABV IPA was generously hopped with Idaho-7, Loral, and Galaxy to give it a bright, juicy, and fruity flavor. Grist Case Head-Rest pours a hazy golden color and features minimal bitterness and a silky soft mouthfeel

leigh street dipa

Leigh Street DIPA is a big, juicy beer that’s double dry hopped with all Mosaic hops for a tropical, fruity flavor and aroma. Low bitterness and soft mouthfeel are trademark characteristics of Leigh Street DIPA, which pours a cloudy, golden color.


Defenestrator is a ruby brown doppelbock with a malty aroma and mild fruity notes. The clean, full-bodied mouthfeel complements the nutty flavor with malty, bready sweetness that finishes crisp for an easy-drinking, mellow doppelbock. #neverstoplagering

Ardent pilsner

Ardent Pilsner is a golden straw, clear pilsner with classic lager aroma that is clean and bready, with light grassiness from 100% Hallertauer mittelfrüh noble hops. Medium body and high carbonation accentuate the soft bitterness, malty sweetness and mild fruitiness. Ardent Pilsner is a crisp, refreshing German-style pils that finishes dry and clean with a creamy, long-lasting head that leaves rich lacing. #neverstoplagering
