Lizard King IPA Noir – 6.7%
Lizard King is a full bodied black IPA, Chocolaty black India Pale Ale with a complex mixture of hops registering on the palate and in the nose. The flavor hops play with the chocolate and light roasty flavors while the bittering hops support the big body with a brisk bitterness. John’s tribute to Jim Morrison of the Doors.
Temple of Heaven Honey Ginger IPA – 7.0%
Brewed with loads of fresh ground whole root ginger, malted barley and BTF Honey. This IPA has an assertive staunch bitterness that twirls with the ginger above the caramel malt body below. Soft ginger in the nose will be your first greeting with this lovely strong lady!
Light on body and alcohol content, yet full of flavor and character. Bracing hop bitterness balances with light malty tones to create a quenching, satisfying and very session-able IPA. Wonderfully balanced citrus and pine hop flavor, in no short supply, will keep you happy – or should we say hoppy. We love our Open Space here in Traverse City and now you can love it, too, wherever you are.
Bright, fresh and summery! Slightly malty with bright natural lemon flavor derived from whole fruit insuring a bright, clean citrus flavor without added sweetness. Sun Cup is a summery, thirst-quenching wheat beer that pairs well with seafood and salads, yet has more than enough backbone and character to stand up to grilled foods as well. Try it with a twist or two of fresh, coarse-ground pepper in your glass!
Sleeping Bear Brown is back! Subtle malt flavor is balanced with clean hop character, yielding a nicely rounded flavor profile. Light brown in color with a mildly nutty character, this beer appeals to a wide audience and pairs well with many dishes. One of the first widely distributed craft beers in Michigan, Sleeping Bear Brown was originally produced by Traverse Brewing Company.
This beer is another fine example of a culinary inspired creation from Brewmaster John Niedermaier. Produced with honey from our hives here on the farm and a blend of Terra Firma and California sweet basil. Brewed with our honey along with a blend of Terra Firma grown and California sweet basil. This beer presents beautifully with a rich, golden hue and bright, white, creamy head. The experience continues with delightful aromas from basil and honey which transfer to the palate then fade gracefully leaving a nice, clean finish.
William Claude bourbon barrel aged barleywine- 11%
William Claude is our nod to comedian and film super star W.C Fields. It is brewed with rye, barley and a deep specialty malt bill that provides the big body of this 11% haymaker. The exotic hop varieties make its perfect balance interesting and extra flavorful. Then we laid it down in bourbon barrels from Grand Traverse Distillery until the flavor was just right. “A good cast is worth repeating”
Man in Black American Oatmeal Stout – 7.0%
Man in Black is our nod to music legend Johnny Cash. This American style stout is focused and delicious with chocolate and roast well balanced within. Deep, rich, smooth and satisfying not unlike Johnny's vocals. Enjoy with desserts, sausages or oysters for starters.
