Black cobra oatmeal stout

​abv:  5.3  IBU:  34

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

Blinkerton is our first dive into some recently developed hop products. While still using a small amount of hops for bitterness and aroma, the bulk of the flavor comes from CO2 hop extracts.
These extracts emphasize the true flavor of the hops. They allow an increase in yield due to the reduction of vegetal matter in the beer.
More flavor and more beer. Win Win!
Flavor/Aroma: Yuzu, Papaya, Grapefruit, Pineapple, Wintergreen, and Black Pepper
Malts:Pale, 2 Row, Pils, Munich, C-20, and Carapils
Hop Varietals: Columbus, Simcoe, El Dorado

Irish Style Red Ale served in pints (6.00) and 25oz mugs (87.00)

Tilted Kilt is a deep ruby red Irish ale.  
Brewed with Maris Otter, caramel, and roasted barleys,  it has a malty, biscuity, flavor and a smooth caramel finish.  There is almost no hoppy bitterness or flavor.    
The use of these British malts, Golding hops, and Irish Ale yeast make this beer as authentic as we can brew it.  


Hone Vol. 1

​abv:  12.8   IBU:  66.6


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.


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

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

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

Red rocket amber ale

​abv:  6.8  IBU:  28

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

This unfiltered copper colored lager is just what we need for the late Fall and early Winter months.
It has slightly sweet malt aroma with just a touch of floral notes from the German hops.
Toasty, biscuit like flavors roll across your tongue with just a little bit of caramel sweetness.
Don't let the low ABV and IBU trick you. This is one flavorful beer that you will want to drink again and again.
Dry toast in a glass.

Blended Imperial Stout served in snifters (6.00)

The debut of our new Hone series is a big and bold imperial stout. It is a blend of bourbon barrel and stainless fermented stouts. 50% barrel aged imperial stout, 40% fresh imperial stout, and 10% Black Cobra Oatmeal Stout.
Rich and chewy fudge brings you to a nice kiss of raisin and stone fruit. Sweet vanilla and a dryness from the oak appear on the back.
Looking forward to the next blend

It's it's own thing!  Served in pints (6.00) and  25oz mugs (7.00)

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.

Yeast:  American Ale
