  • 1842 BOHEMIAN PILSNER

    • pint $4.50

    This Bohemian Pilsner was brewed with the finest Saaz hops from the Czech Republic.

  • BIG BEARD BROWN ALE

  • Seasonals

  • HASTA LA VISTA LAGER

  • SWEET TEATS COCOAWEIZEN

    • pint $4.50

    This beer is reminiscent of a milk stout, brewed with dark malts and lactose. We used our Hefeweizen yeast to ferment this beer. The yeast adds banana and clove characteristics to this already complex flavor powder. 7.3% ABV and 20 IBU

  • SHAPE SHIFTER BELGIAN DUBBEL

    • 13oz $5.00

    This beer is truly one of a kind. Each time it is brewed it changes form. We use local ingredients from Birch Run MI. We have formulated our recipes based upon the spices and or other ingredients they have available for the season. THE BELGIAN DUBBEL was brewed with organic Cinnamon, Orange peel, and Nutmeg. If you like this beer, you better drink a couple because it may be your last chance. 
    8.3% ABV and 16 IBU

  • TRIPEL WALLOON BELGIAN IMPERIAL AMBER ALE

    • 13oz $5.00

    This beer was brewed similar to what is commonly known as a Belgian Tripel. But instead we used dark Belgian Candi Syrup, which gives this beer its amber color. No dark malts or crystal malts were used. Complex, with a mild spicy flavor. This beer is yeast driven. This beer is surprisingly high octane. FYI we ordered Belgian Clear Candi Syrup but 100 lovibond Dark Candi Syrup came on the pallet instead, we just went with it. 11.3% ABV and 23 IBU

  • FRAMBOISE RASPBERRY BELGIAN KETTLE SOUR

    • pint $5.00

    We brewed this beer with over 100lbs of raspberries. We kettle soured this Belgian Ale to contribute to the tartness of the raspberries. The Belgian yeast adds a slight fruit and spice character. 4.6% ABV and  5 IBU

  • Limited Release

  • BLUE ORLEANS

    • pint $4.50

    "There is a house in" Blue Orleans. We ramped up our House of the Weizen Sun recipe to enhance the body and alcohol content. We also added over a hundred pounds of blueberry puree into secondary to give this Hefe a wonderful fruity character.  6.7% ABV and 12 IBU

  • RECREATIONAL CHEMISTRY LAGER

    • pint $5.00

    This lager is an experiment in water chemistry, malt, hops, and yeast. We double dry-hopped this lager with a combination of Michigan Cascade, and Mt. Rainier, along with Citra Hops. With just the right mix of brewing salts we’ve created a soft mouthfeel with just a bit of an acidic bite. With a higher carbonation level than normal this beer is reminiscent of a Mimosa. 5.5% ABV and 29 IBU

  • BY THE MAYOR’S REQUEST NEW ENGLAND IPA

    • pint $5.00

    This New England Style IPA is very approachable and it is also one for the hop heads! We used 32 pounds of hops in this complex, cloudy, aromatic, and juicy IPA. Yet, only one pound during the boiling process. Double dry-hopped, once during fermentation and once in secondary, rolled oats and wheat to soften the body which along with the dry-hopping contribute to this cloudy, hazy, juicy monster we call a New England IPA. Enjoy! 6.7% ABV and 39 IBU

  • ARCADIA MANGO SURPRISE

    • pint $5.50

    Sail away to the tropics with our new mango infused IPA! Golden in color, like that of a sunset in the islands, its body is gently topped with a frothy white sea foam head. Tropical aromas of mango, pineapple, papaya and citrus gently play off a bright hop profile with a slight malt nose. Flavors follow the aroma but expose the juicy hop bitterness and flavor of Simcoe, Amarillo, and Summit hops with a slight hint of Pilsner and CaraPils malt. The relatively dry malt body is gently accentuated by the sweet mango flavors, brought straight from the islands of Barbados. 6.5% ABV
