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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
