*Fellow craft beer enthusiasts!*
Last summer everyone was drinking us out of house and home and with this summer fast approaching, we would like to remind our visitors that our tap list is subject to change periodically based on availability. If you have any questions about what is coming down the line or what we currently have on tap, please feel free to give us a call! We are actively planning our expansion for a production facility, but until we get it online, we ask that you be patient with us and the beers that we have available on any given day.
See you in the taproom!
Bateau Brown Ale
This Medium bodied, Northern English Brown Ale has a nice nutty aroma. The roasted malts are the star of the show followed by subtle sweetness for an extremely balanced beer.
Style: Northern English Brown Ale
Jacob's Farmhouse Ale
Traditional Northern France Farmhouse Ale consists of a pleasing amount of Srisselspalts hops from the Alsace area of France to give grassy, citrus and herbal notes in the aroma. The yeast esters give hints of banana and faint clove formulating an easy drinking "Old World" European style ale.
Style: French Farmhouse Ale
Nicolet Rye IPA
Happy, refreshing and pleasant, this Rye IPA has a nice balance of malty rye and Galaxy, Chinook and Mosaic hops.
Style: Rye IPA
The Deepest depth of the Straits of Mackinac is 49 fathoms. This big bodied sweet milk stout is robust with roasted notes and sweet flavors, it is a "deeper" version of the 20 Fathoms with more complexity and a slightly higher ABV.
Style: Sweet Stout
Medium to high malt flavor with a toasty, toffee-like or caramel sweetness in this Belgian Dark Strong. Low to moderate esters and alcohol flavors. Medium-low hop bitterness but the balance is always tilted toward the malt. The malt flavor lasts into the finish but the finish is medium-dry to dry. Alcohol can provide some additional dryness in the finish. Low to no hop flavor.
Style: Black Belgian Dark Strong
IBUs : 29
MI Maple Amber
This medium bodied, Northern Michigan Amber has distinct maple presence in the aroma. With malty characteristics of caramel on the front ending a maple finish leaving a subtle dry sweetness balancing it out nicely!
Style: Amber Ale
A light bodied American IPA with Amarillo, Cascade, Nugget and Chinook hops. The floral/citrus on the forefront is followed by a caramel maltiness & a tickle of pine that balances the beer satisfyingly for nearly all IPA lovers.
Style: Rotating IPA
Translating to "We Like It", Nous L'aimons is a French Bière de Garde with a complex grain bill that showcases dark dried fruits such as raisin, apricot, and dried fig. This "beer for keeping" has a long, dry finish with hits of black peppercorn attributing to the esters of our house French Ale yeast.
Style: French Amber Bière de Garde
North Tower Pale Ale
This Pale Ale has a nice malt/hop balance and it hits all the notes that one would expect to find in an American Pale Ale. Some 2-Row, Crystal 45, Vienna, Dextrose coupled with Mosaic & Amarillo Hops. Enjoy!
Style: American Pale Ale
2 Row, Vienna, Melanoiden & Crystal 15 make up the grain bill in this fantastic Belgian Blonde with medium body and crisp finish. With a "loud" mouthfeel and bready clove characteristics, this easy drinking beer is sure to please anyone who enjoys a hearty Blonde!
Style: Belgian Blonde Ale
Being that the only car to blow off the Mackinac Bridge was a Yugo, we decided to name this extremely light, crisp Kristalweizen beer just that. Also known as our "gateway beer" to introduce all the domestic beer lovers to the craft beer world!
