Manitou Amber Bourbon Sour – 5.7% 

Traverse City’s 1st Craft Beer is now Terra Firma’s 1st sour beer.

Manitou’s malt forward body and underlying hop foundation makes it great as a sour.

Aged in oak barrels from our friends at Grand Traverse Distillery.


Imperial Soul Butter IPA-13.0%

“Imperial-izing” our flagship Triple IPA has been something we have been thinking about doing for many years and well, that time has come. We scaled up the malt bill, blew up the IBUs, increased the flavor hop profile ad then added a bunch of our own 2020 honey from our hives in the south field. The results? A big, beautiful hop monster that’s full of body, depth, and laden with complexity. It has a lovely subtle warmth to remind you that it is a big beer. It’s a great beer for a hop head who wants to contemplate the universe and sip for a while.

Little Italy Honey Basil 5.2% 

Bright, crisp and refreshing, Little Italy offers up an enticing herbal/floral aroma and early basil flavors before giving way to a light, clean finish with just a touch of honey. Produced with whole leaf sweet basil, oats, malt and BTF Honey, this beer is another fine example of a culinary inspired creation from Brewmaster John Niedermaier.


Batch 500 IPA - 7.3%

The Batch is is back, and it's chock full of local hop goodness! A big, complex, well-balanced IPA with a bold hop character that isn't overpowering. This beer has an extensive malt bill and multiple hop additions, including local hops from Fresh Roots Organic Growers. Surprisingly easy drinking, the considerable alcohol content takes a back seat to the broad flavor profile. Batch 500 was brewmaster John Niedermaier's first solo commercial recipe, first brewed back in 1999.


Manitou Amber Ale - 5.7%

Unfiltered American Amber Ale. Manitou has a rich, soft malt body, beautiful deep amber color and finishes with a bouquet of whole cone hops. Manitou was at one time one of Michigan's most widely recognized microbrewed brands. Originally produced by Traverse Brewing Company in Williamsburg Michigan, Manitou is now brewed in Traverse City, on the same equipment, with the original recipe by the same brewer. One of our flagship brews, you can find this beer at on draft and in 16 oz cans throughout our distribution area.


Gladstone APA - 5.9%

Unfiltered American style Pale Ale, featuring all local hops. While the market is saturated with pale ales, Gladstone's unique character allows the hops to provide a spicy, satisfying palate cleansing finish, while still allowing the underlying malts to provide the foundation. This go-to pale ale also has the distinction of being brewed with 100% locally grown hops. Gladstone pairs with many foods including spicy grill smoked ribs, bratwurst, Thai or even just a simple salad. Named after a small town in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Man In Black American Oatmeal Stout - 7.0%

Malty with balanced, chocolate body. Man In Black is a classic American Stout with a malty, balanced, chocolate body. Rich and smooth with mild roast character, “The Man” is a laid back, easy drinker. Our tribute to American music legend Johnny Cash.


Fuzzier Farmer Imperial IPA- 10% 

Amplified Fuzzy Farmer, that we all loved, this farmer is a 10% Imperial IPA. It’s loaded with deep fruity, citrusy hops and a big malt body, Be Careful.


Gigi Chocolate Orange Stout- 6.6%  

We brew this unique and luscious beer with fresh orange zest, single ingredient juice and a careful blend of dark chocolate malts so that the juicy flavor and delicate aroma of fresh oranges wafts from your glass. Savor it slowly and relax.

The Northumberland Moderate – 8.0%

Our American version of an English Strong ale, this beer has a well-balanced, hop profile that leads to a substantial malty body. Enjoy this ale with strong cheeses, nuts, or good bread.


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”


Brown Donkey Smasher – 9.0% ­

Donkey Smasher is big, strong, and brown with a good solid kick of hops in the finish. This double brown ale incorporates a variety of grains to enhance fermentability without making the beer excessively heavy. Full flavored and easy drinking with no harsh alcohol flavors or aroma, Brown Donkey Smasher finishes clean and medium-dry thanks to late addition hops. Features local hops from Fresh Root Organics.







Soul Butter Triple IPA - 8.0% 

Soul Butter. Oh man... intensely hoppy but not bitter American style triple IPA. Nine separate hop additions, six different hop varieties including local whole cone hops. Aromatic and enormously complex, aggressive hop flavor dominates without bitterness. Late hop additions, including dry-hopping, means that Soul Butter is overcharged with floral, spicy hop flavors.
