Anna Belle’s™ IPA
NABA Gold Award Winner 2013!
A ruby beer with a burst of hop flavors and aromas are paired with a solid malt backbone and a clean and pleasant bitterness that lingers on the palate. Aromas of pine and citrus are prevalent due to heavy dry-hopping with a blend of West Coast hops.
Uly's Dark™ Oatmeal Stout
NABA Bronze Award Winner 2011 and 2013!
President Ulysses S. Grant’s (Uly to his friends) Chocolate Oatmeal Stout is what this ale is all about!
Dark as the mines of Galena, this stout has a rich and creamy tanned head which leaves beautiful lacing in your glass as it is enjoyed. It's a full bodied ale with profound notes of chocolate and roasted malts which help to round out its flavor profile. Sweet coffee notes also linger on the palate to entice the next sip!

Uptown™ Brown Ale
World Beer Cup Silver Award Winner 2012!
The Uptown Nut Brown Ale won a silver award in the Category 92 "American Style Brown Ale"
This beer pours a deep chocolate brown color with light struggling to show through the edges of the pint. As a rocky off white head forms, aromas of roasted nuts and molasses pour from the glass. This beer is malt oriented with flavors of roasted malt and golden toasted bread and finishes quite dry with a noticeable but not overwhelming floral and earthy hop presence. We dedicate this beer to Ely Parker, who served on General Grant's personal staff. Find out more about Ely here.
