Brews On Tap

 

Sommer's Blonde - An ale light in color and body, slightly bitter, but still fairly balanced. The classic American Williamette hop provides a light, pleasant floral aroma . 4.8% abv, 18 IBUs.
Today's Sermon - A tarted up Hefeweizen, this batch is a little more sour than previous ones. Kettle soured to produce a dry, fairly tart beer that finishes lightly with the characteristic hefe flavors of banana, clove, and yeast 3.6% ABV 2 IBU's
Flatlander - An Irish Style Red Ale.  Coppery red in color, with hints of chocolate and coffee in both aroma and flavor from caramel malt and a touch of roasted barley.  Lightly hopped only to balance the sweetness of the strong malt backbone.  5.1% ABV, 18 IBU’s.
Scarlet Tart - Soured Red. Based on the grain bill from our Flatlander this sour is quite tart with hints of cherries and plums. Mash hopped with CTZ and finished with Fuggle hops gives this beer a pleasant earthly aroma. 6.0% ABV 11 IBU's.
Beets Me - This best bitter was brewed with 25 lbs. of red beets from Hugh's Gardens just outside Moorhead, MN. This classic English style features a malty backbone, darkened with 80° caramel and a but of Munich malts, and enhanced by a slightly earthy and sweet touch from the beets. Fuggle and Cluster hops add a hint of floral earthiness to the aroma and flavor as well 4.4% ABV 28 IBU's.
Hard Red Spring - This red wheat ale is based on the recipe for our Flatlander. We replaced the pale malt with malted red spring wheat and scaled the whole batch up a bit. The result is a slightly bigger beer, with a bit more hop bitterness, but with a light mouthfeel. 6.3% ABV 60 IBU's
Spuds O'Murphy's - This Dry Stout gets its dark color along with chocolate and coffee flavors come from a hefty dose of roasted barley.  This lends some dryness along with a distinct lack of caramel malt and 100 lbs of russet potatoes from Hugh's Gardens in Moorhead.  Only a small addition of hops is made at the beginning of the boil to balance any remaining sweetness. 4.5% ABV 36 IBU's
Ploughboy – an Oatmeal Stout.  Very dark, with pronounced roasted flavors like coffee and chocolate from a high percentage of dark adjuncts--chocolate, caramel and black malts, along with roasted barley.  Added mouthfeel from the addition of oats, and balanced more from the bitterness of the dark malts than the light addition of Perle hops.  5.1% ABV, 24 IBU’s.
Up Dog - an American Pale Ale. Assertively hoppy, but not as bitter as an IPA. Williamette and Belma hops give you a fruity aroma and flavor,subtly strawberry and melon, with a hint of floral citrus. 5.4%ABV, 45 IBU's
Simcosis –  This American IPA is hopped exclusively with a large amount of Simcoe hops, creating a great resinous  flavor and aroma, with a touch of citrus.  Munich and light caramel malts add sweetness and extra malt character to the North Dakota grown Okefenokee Pale malt base from Two Track Malting in Bismarck.  6.9% ABV and surprisingly balanced with 71 IBU’s.
 

Fresh Brewed Soda’s — Non-alcoholic

Fresh Hopped IPA - An American IPA.  Very hop forward.  The combination of CTZ and Cascade hops produces a nicely rounded, almost grapefruit like hop profile.  Balanced by the malt bill, including Munich and caramel malts.  Fresh CTZ hops from Lake Lida Hops Company added to the fermenter add a hop character unattainable with dry hops.  7.0% abv, 70 IBU's.
