India Pale Ale served in pints (6.50) and 25oz mugs (8.00)

It started with Blinkerton and now we've moved on to Double Blinker. While still using a small amount of hops for bitterness and aroma, the bulk of the flavor comes from CO2 hop extracts.
We threw in a few more bags of malt and doubled the amount of hop extract in the whirlpool.

Flavor/Aroma: Melon, Grapefruit, Passion Fruit, and Lychee. There is a hint of herbal tea, with a well rounded amount of Earthy Pine. 
Malts: Pale, 2 Row, Pils, Munich, C-20, and Carapils
Hop Varietals: Columbus, Citra, Mosaic

Oatmeal Stout, served in pints (6.00) and 25oz mugs (7.00)

This is a rich and complex beer.  We use flaked oats and barley to add a certain "mouth-feel" to the beer, as well as dark crystal malts for some residual sweetness and body.  This beer is dark but it's also very approachable for all beer fans.  It has flavors of coffee, toffee, and caramel.  It's roasty and toasty.  Don't be scared!  Just try some! 

Malt:  2 Row, Flaked Barley, Flaked Wheat, Roasted Barley, Crystal Malts

Hops:  East Kent Goldings

Yeast:  American Ale

hustle and bustelo

​abv:  7.3   IBU:  45

Coffee Stout served in pints (6.00) and 25oz mugs (7.00)

Hustle and Bustelo is a strong American-style stout that has been infused with Cuban coffee and Madagascar vanilla beans.

The base is full-bodied and coats the mouth with rich and fudgey flavors from the roasted grains and extended boil time. The infusion adds wonderful notes of toasted marshmallows, a touch of bakers chocolate, and the classic coffee flavor and aroma expected with Cuban espresso

American Pale Ale, served in pints (6.00) and 25oz mugs (7.00)

An American style Pale Ale, this beer isn't like its British sisters.  Bittered with Centennial hops early and a much heftier portion of Cascade, Columbus, and Centennial hops late to add the citrusy flavor and aroma.  We also use a clean fermenting yeast and let the gravity finish low to keep it dry, crisp, and leaving you wanting more.

Malt:  2 Row, Golden Promise, Carastan, Carapils

Hops:  Centennial, Cascade, Columbus

Yeast:  American Ale

Smoked Porter served in pints (6.00)

and 25oz mug (7.00)

I asked our longtime associate JJ "What kind of beer should I brew?"

He replied "A stout or porter sounds good. Oh, you should do a smoked porter."

A few weeks later and abracadabra here it is! 

The base beer is a Robust Porter and we did a 50/50 blend of Pale Ale Malt and Smoked Malt to lay the foundation.

Golden Hawk Wheat Ale

​abv:  5   IBU:  13

American Wheat Ale, served in pints (6.00) and 25oz mugs (7.00)

This incredibly drinkable ale is made with malted wheat and finished with Columbus hops.  It is crisp and refreshing with just the right amount of hop bitterness to round it out.

Malt:  2 Row, Golden Promise, Red Wheat Malt, Flaked Wheat

Hops:  Columbus

Yeast:  American Ale

Flying Aces Pale Ale

​abv:  6.5  IBU:  52

American Style Lager served in pints (6.00) and 25oz mugs (7.00)

Bright gold color with brilliant clarity.
Mildly sweet malt flavors of honey and graham crackers lead to a pleasant bitterness.
Nice little amount of a floral spiciness from the Mt. Hood hops.
Heck of a drinkin' beer
Malt: Pale, 2-Row, Flaked Corn, Carapils, Munich
Hops: Columbus and Mt. Hood

American Amber Ale, served in pints (6.00) and 25oz mugs (7.00)

Our take on an American Amber Ale blends Pale, Crystal, Munich, and Chocolate malts to for a malt backbone that supports a hefty dose of Cascade and Columbus hops.  It's malty, hoppy, and amazingly drinkable.

Malt:  2 Row, Victory, Crystal, Chocolate, Pale Chocolate, Munich

Hops:  Cascade, Columbus

Yeast:  American Ale

French-Style Premium Lager served in pints (6.00) and 25oz mugs (7.00)

TThis beer is our interpretation of the everyday drinking beers of France. 
Beautiful gold color with a pillowy white head. Les Incompétents lies somewhere between a Helles and Pilsner. 
A beautiful floral nose leads to a pleasantly mild malt character with a touch of honey. The finish is dry and crisp with a kiss of spice from the Strisselspalt hops.
Malt: French Pilsner, Corn, and Carapils
Hops: French Strisselspalt

The Bees Knees is brewed with a small amount of caramel malts for color and honey malt for flavor, along with just enough hops to balance out the sweetness of the honey that we add in the boil.  We use 25 lbs of locally produced Wild Flower honey in every batch.  It is smooth, sweet and our most popular beer.

Malt:  2 Row, Carapils, Honey Malt, Crystal Malt

Hops:  Warrior, Crystal

25 lbs of Iowa Wildflower honey at the end of the boil.
