NEW BEERS this weekend!
We have 2 Brand New Beers! Stop out this weekend to fill your glasses & growlers! Both of these new beers were made in full-batch sizes, so we should have them both available for at least a few weeks.
"Schnitz & Giggles" is a very mild, light colored, super easy drinking beer! Brewed with a German Kolsch yeast, you won't want to stop at just one! 5% ABV, 15 IBU.
"Dingo" is a mild flavored, amber colored ale, full of caramel malts & flavors. Another easy drinking beer; this one is brewed with Australian hops! 5.5% ABV, 18 IBU.
Lastly, while not new, our Cherry Ale is finally back on tap! One of our fruit beers, cherry ale is made with real fruit, has a sweet/tart flavor, pink color, and is super refreshing. 5.5% ABV.
