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.
Rich porter brewed with chocolate malt, dutch chocolate and ancho chilies. There's a special magic that happens between chilies and chocolate that was first utilized in ancient Latin America and still weaves its spell today. Ancho Chili Dutch Double Chocolate Porter showcases the perfect balance of chili flavor and warmth combined with dark chocolate. This is not a hot pepper beer – The warmth from the chilies builds slowly, enhancing the character of the beer without becoming dominant. Far from being a novelty beer, the richness of chocolate malts and Dutch cocoa combined with the deep, smoky flavor imparted by whole Ancho chilies while the beer is conditioning will keep you coming back for more.
Rich and decadent chocolate porter laid down over Madagascar vanilla beans. A variety of spices and malts form the base of this sumptuous porter. Accenting the rich body of the brew is the fruit of the vanilla planifolia vine, the vanilla bean. Whole vanilla beans are used, not extracts or flavorings, and the flavor is allowed to infuse the beer naturally over a long period of time. The result is a smooth vanilla flavor and slight aroma, the perfect counterpoint to the chocolate notes.
This Imperial IPA is an amplified version of our Fuzzy Farmer, at 10% be careful with this one.

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.
Brewed with honey from our hives and whole heather flowers. 6.5%. A fruity, cozy and easy drinking beer with substantial depth and complexity. Broad appeal comes from a full, silky body and nice hop balance, the heather providing subtle floral notes without being perfumy. Finishes clean with light medicinal heather and fruit with a hint of honey. As always, no flavorings or extracts were used in brewing this beer, the unique flavor and color coming from whole Scottish heather flowers and honey from our own bee hives.
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.
The original Chocolate Mint Stout. First brewed in 1996 as a tasty beverage to take along on Northern Michigan snowshoeing adventures, Snowbound blends chocolate malts and Michigan whole-leaf peppermint. Nicely balanced, the mint adds crispness to the chocolate without becoming dominant. Easy drinking, it's also a great dessert beer - as an accompaniment, an ingredient (think chocolate mint stout cake), or reduce it down into a delicious sauce to drizzle over fresh ice cream.
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.
A very special brew for us here at Brewery Terra Firma! Spring of 2019 we decided to try and plant a barley variety suitable for malting and grow it here at BTF in our East Field. Spring turned to summer, we watched the barley grow right from the brewery and beer garden, patiently waiting for the day to harvest. With help from Mug Club Members we harvest the East Field and sent to GT Culinary Oils on Cass where it was cleaned and dried. After the barley goes dormant its time for malting. Our friends over at Great Lakes Malting Co. over on Cass helped us out with this. After a couple weeks a drew date is set and history was made!
