This take on a Belgian summer classic is the color of the rising moon. Gently spiced with toasted coriander and
orange peel along with a kiss of chamomile. Aromas of orange cream, sugar cookies, lavender and ginger cradle a soft and cuddly mouthfeel to a lightly tart and snappy finish. Like its namesake, sugar and spice and everything nice. Over the moon to welcome baby Luna to the world. 5.2% abv.
Having an Uncle Bert is good. Reliable and strong, Uncle Bert is a man of few words. He lets his rich notes of vanilla, caramel, and creme brulee do the talking.

First to arrive and last to leave but never wearing out his welcome. Having an Uncle Bert is fun and fun is good. Have you an Uncle Bert? You should. 7.5% abv

Alone, together. A risque expose of a single malt meeting a single hop and the sordid soiree that ensues. The celebration of beauty in simplicity and the creativity born of restraint. This odd couple – the bready and understated biscuit sweetness of Optic Malt from the UK bro-in down with the rowdy and assertive pine and dank whiffs of Michigan grown Chinook hops for a night they’ll never remember and a bond forged of libatious liasons. 6.1% abv
Inspired by the titular garnish on a Mai Tai. An approachable beer with sunny notes of mango, guava, and pineapple lounge upon just enough bitterness to call it an IPA. This tropical fruity brew is crafted to drink in a hammock on the sand. An all day beach blanket beer at 5.6% abv.
The perfect course companion. On the green with hoppy notes of tropical fruits and candied citrus. Wheat malt tees a subtle tart snap and caddies a medium bodied, easy swinger. An ace, or at least close enough amongst friends, now gimme another! 7.3% abv
A process inspired beer. eLBow Room leaves space for some of our favorite hops to boogie down. Each addition throughout this exbeeriment was done strain by strain at its own particular point in time – from first wort entering the kettle to the third dry hop in the fermenter. Where many recipes call for blends at a certain ratio, this was a thought towards artful layering of flavors and aromas. Progressive poundage of singular specific strobiles with room to bloom. Say that three times fast. 7% abv
A feathery mouthfeel is declared champion as oats strike a fluffy stunner upon a clean pilsner malt bed. Citra, Nelson, and Amarillo battle it out intensely in this bright and potent IPA. 7% abv
Top billing hops storm the stage in this bone-dry West Coast style IPA. A slight honey sweetness supports the piney, resinous, citrus hop profile. A well hidden 8.2% & 75 IBU – the crowd demands an encore.
Musically speaking, the second note of the diatonic scale, or one step above Tonic. In our terms, a more potent elixer than the original. Infused with more flavors of milk chocolate, more roast, more mouthfeel, and most important – more coffee. Whoever said there can be too much of a good thing never had a chance to try this here beer. A wiser man once said – everything in moderation, especially moderation. Cheers to that, and you! 6.2% abv
