AMERICAN IPA 7% ABV
HALF ACRE BREWING CO // CHICAGO, IL
Please join us in welcoming Half Acre to Stone Lake. We have been fans of these funky folks and their delicious beers for many years. Their flagship beer, Daisy Cutter first snuck into our hearts, and we were totally hooked when a close friend brought us our first taste of their annual coffee stout Big Hugs (omfgdelicious). To kick off what will hopefully be many more of their beers is a limited run IPA called Dungeons. Hopped with Mosaic, Waimea, and Simcoe, it packs a resinous fruity punch with a mellow honeyed malt body that delivers 7 elegant percents(?) of alcohol. They describe it as "a true shark biscuit's dream" and I'm inclined to agree.
GERMAN-STYLE PILSNER 5.3% ABV
VICTORY BREWING COMPANY // DOWNINGTOWN, PA
Another beer that shows how simplicity can be both elegant and delicious. Victory show their brewing prowess with one of the top tier Pilsners made this side of the Atlantic. They say that Prima is a German exclamation of joy, and you'll feel it with your first sip. Famously brewed with whole cone hops, the German style of Pilsner is more hop forward than the Czech, and Prima packs a floral punch. This is what you want to satisfy your thirst and hop craving at once.
Crisp High Five
DRY HOPPED KETTLE SOUR W/ GINGER 6.5%
EARTH RIDER BREWING CO & DANGEROUS MAN BREWING // SUPERIOR, WI & MINNEAPOLIS, MN
My favorite thing about beer is the ability it has to bring people together. It's even better when breweries come together to make a beer that uhhh...brings people together? Basically it's all about togetherness. Anyway, this is a tasty collaboration connecting the North Shore and Northeast. Take a tart, kettle-sour base with a mild malt profile, dry hop it with Australian Galaxy hops, cap it off with a burst of ginger and you've got a Crisp High Five in liquid form. Can't wait to see what they come up with in the next edition of this collaborative series!
OATMEAL BROWN ALE 5.5% ABV
SURLY BREWING CO // MINNEAPOLIS, MN
One of the original Surly beers, and the first one I ever tasted. Roasted grains, toffee, and a touch of dark fruit sweetness are all rounded out with a dose of oats. So many good ways to enjoy this versatile beer, it pairs up amazingly well with a wide array of grilled meats, is a great addition to a stew, and is in the running for the best beer to have around a bonfire. Don't get lost in all the hype surrounding so many of Surly's limited release beers, Bender is here kicking ass year round.
WOOD AGED WILD FRUIT ALE 4% ABV
NEW GLARUS BREWING // NEW GLARUS, WI
It's not an overstatement to say that New Glarus is one of the best quality breweries on the planet. While they are best known for Spotted Cow, their fruited sour program is perhaps the crown jewel. In this limited, highly sought after release, its a total battle between sweet and sour. It boasts a deep ruby color and off pink head of foam, the aroma is of a tangy, funky, strawberry patch and what starts as a mouthful of fresh berries quickly transforms into a lightly acidic, dry, tart finish. A Wisconsin summer in a glass: fresh, delicious, and gone too fast.
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.
Blonde de L'enfer
BELGIAN STYLE STRONG GOLDEN ALE 10.5% ABV
BRASSERIE UNIBROUE // CHAMBLY, QUEBEC, CANADA
Celebrating 25 years of making some of the best Belgian-style beers outside of Belgium, is this Blonde from Hell (l'enfer). Starting with Duvel, the Strong Golden style has a connection with hell and the devil, rumored to be because the high alcohol content is so well hidden in the otherwise delicate malt and hop profile, making it a "devil of a drink". If you've been fortunate enough to have experienced their most well known beer La Fin du Monde, then you know how skilled Unibroue is at creating an enchanting golden ale. Sweet aromas of clove, pears, and flowers escape from the rich white foam and lead you to an effervescent, delicate golden body with only a hint of heat on the finish indicating the 10+%ABV. Like a sweet, passing daydream, this golden nectar will be here and gone before you know it.
*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.
