Fruit Fight Hazy IPA
NE IPA 6.7% ABV
DESCHUTES BREWING // BEND, OR
Further proof that hazy IPAs are a nationwide craft beer phenomenon. Given their mastery of hoppy deliciousness over the past 30 years, Deschutes has served up a great example of the New England style, hazy IPA. Despite the name, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer. That disclaimer in place, it sure smells and tastes like a juicy fruit basket with a sweet punch of hop bitterness to remind you that it's hops not fruit bringing that aroma. Sipping is just fine, but gulping may be the preferred method of consumption.
BELGIAN DARK TRIPEL 10.5% ABV
BROUWERIJ VAN STEENBERGE // ERTVELDE, BELGIUM
Prepare your soul for a true Belgian beer experience. Gulden Draak is one of the most iconic Belgian beers, with a tap handle and glass to boot. Rich flavors of caramelized sugar, dark fruits, and floral yeast esters are some of the highlights of this deep honey gold concoction. If you've got the patience to let it warm in your glass, you'll be rewarded with deeper flavors and a gentle warmth from the elevated alcohol content. The golden dragon emblem that is so tied to the beer is based off the statue that sits atop the Belfry in Ghent. If you need some proof of the magic of Gulden Draak (and just for some fun viewing) check out this video from Global Beer Importer's enigmatic Johnny Fincioen
DRY HOPPED KETTLE SOUR W/ HIBISCUS 5.7%
FAIR STATE BREWING CO-OP // MINNEAPOLIS, MN
Roselle is a trifecta, beautiful in appearance, aroma, and taste. It's hard not to be smiling and enjoying life while drinking it. Fair State has cultivated a top notch sour program, and this lacto fermented kettle sour ups the game with hibiscus adding another layer of tartness, a floral aroma and the deep pink hue. Come by on Thursday September 6th to try this in slushee form during our Luau tasting!
Wild Sour Ale
WISCONSIN SOUR BROWN ALE 5% ABV
NEW GLARUS BREWING CO // NEW GLARUS, WI
**Current wild/sour beer**
This beer choice was very selfish. I'll tell you all the reasons you should love it, but ultimately, I'm just smitten with it and am sipping it away as we speak (read?). I've only encountered this limited batch beer one other time from the brilliant mind and craftsmanship of Dan Carey. Brewed in the Belgian/Flemish tradition of allowing the beer to begin a spontaneous fermentation with yeast present in the local air, and then aging it in oak barrels or vats, this brown ale develops a tart flavor similar to green apple or tart cherry with earthy, caramelly, oaky, leathery notes. There's a lot to digest if you want to pick out all the distinct flavors and nuances, but don't forget to drink and enjoy it. A decadent use of this beer would be to make the Flemish stew, Carbonnade, with the tartness of the beer acting as the vinegar component to marinate and tenderize the meat...yumcity. Anyway, I'd hurry in because I just took another sip.
GOLDEN ALE W/ CRANBERRY AND SPRUCE TIPS 5.8% ABV
ALASKAN BREWING CO // JUNEAU, AK
We love all things cranberry here in Stone Lake, so we couldn't pass up this refreshing, tart seasonal from Alaskan. Our friends from Juneau have a very deft touch when it comes to adding fruit to their beer. The cranberry plays the tart note, while the spruce tips enhance the rich berry notes and soften the tang. This is an excellent end of summer refresher that puts you in the mood for fall while remaining thirst quenching.
Citrus Party Kanū
PALE ALE W/ CITRUS PEEL 4.2% ABV
BENT PADDLE BREWING CO // DULUTH, MN
Bent Paddle keeps things exciting with a year-round infusion program by taking their seasonal beers and creating a special version with a variety of infusions. Kanū is their refreshing summer seasonal, a bright pale ale, rich with zesty citrus hop aromas and a light biscuity malt base. To build off that citrus element, they brought actual citrus zest to the party and it is zestastic! Smells like you put your face in the candy orange slice jar at Tremblay's, and finishes with a clean, dry snap. Bring some Citrus Party to your next party.
BELGIAN STYLE SAISON W/ RASPBERRY 6.3% ABV
HINTERLAND BREWING CO // GREEN BAY, WI
Why do you need to put icing on a cake? Isn't a cake already sweet, moist and delicious? I think the answer is obvious, but just like the cake, adding raspberries to an already wonderful style of beer elevates the experience to something greater than the two parts separately. The floral, and lightly peppery Belgian yeast swirls among the sweet, juicy raspberries providing a drink that is both refreshing and interesting. The light pink color from the berries adds to the ambiance, and let's everyone know that you're here to party. Don't listen to anyone who knocks fruit in beer, despite the outrageously sweet sippers out there, this is a truly well made beer that would be welcomed aboard any pontoon but is also adept at pairing in a fine dining setting alongside a plate of soft cheeses, a sweet marinated cut of red meat, or finishing off the dessert list with a slice of vanilla cheesecake.
*COLD BREWED COFFEE* NOT BEER
BLEND FROM DULUTH COFFEE CO // DULUTH, MN
Brewed cold, steeped for nearly 24 hours, and served on nitrogen gas. The mellow, low-acid brew accompanied by the creaminess of the nitrogen creates a roasty, smooth, delicate coffee experience. Try it straight up, as a coffee float with ice cream, or with whipped cream and your favorite flavors in Off The Rails. This is also the base for our iced coffee drinks.
