Beer

Some classics. Some rookies.

We always have those few staples you can depend on. But as a small brewery, you can also bet there’s something new to try. Come visit us and see for yourself.

On Tap Now

We brew small-batch beers every season, but not all of them get canned or bottled. Here’s a full list of what you can catch on draft in our taproom.

First Lager
Pilsner
5.1% ABV

We like to begin at the beginning. Lagers have been around for centuries, and this is our take on a classic: the Pilsner. With a foundation of Midwest malt plus plenty German hops, First Lager is both bright and refreshing. Great any time. Best with friends.

Ride or Die
Pale Ale
5.5% ABV

Ride or Die is a Pale Ale you can depend on — a bona fide fridge staple. Bright neon flavors of grapefruit and pine give way to a pleasantly soft malt base and a quick slice of balancing bitterness. Reliably tasty without a fuss.

Pure Michigan
IPA
6.7% ABV

An IPA showcasing Michigan-grown Chinook hops, which impart notes of juicy pineapple and citrus zest, with a touch of pine and resin on the back end. Finishes dry with pleasant bitterness.

Endgrain
Oktoberfest
5.2% ABV

Endgrain is a Märzen-style Oktoberfest lager to help you usher in the fall season. Rich and malty at the get-go, but kept in balance with a hint of noble hop spice and a clean, effortless finish.

Close Enough
Pilsner
5.3% ABV

Close Enough is a Pilsner made up entirely of regional and local ingredients, including Illinois barley and Michigan hops. This focus brings a sense of Midwestern terroir” to the ubiquitous style, lending a brighter and bolder profile than traditional versions.

Clover Club
Raspberry Sour
6.2% ABV

Clover Club is a Sour Ale inspired by the pre-Prohibition cocktail of the same name. Brewed with raspberries and botanicals, this bright pink beverage is tart and fruity, accented by a dry and herbaceous finish.

Low Key
Spelt Pale Ale
4.6% ABV

An easy-going pale ale made with a high percentage of Spelt, an heirloom grain, which contributes a full body and nutty flavor. Additions of Idaho 7, Styrian Dragon and Hallertau Blanc hops keeps things floral and bright. 

Party Hat
Party Lager (aka Hoppy Lager)
6.2% ABV

A dry-hopped lager showcasing the new school Loral hop. Light melon notes supported by a soft Pilsner malt base.

Bottles & Cans

Our team brews and packages all our beer at our brewery on Milwaukee Ave, which we think is pretty neat. Along with the mainstay cans that are available all year, we love brewing limited special releases.
