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.

(IBU 80, ABV 7.5)


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! Find out more about General Grant here!

(IBU 38, ABV 5.7)


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.

(IBU 29, ABV 5.5)

World Beer Cup awards 2012 in San Diego.
This competition hosted 3921 entries from 799 brewerys in 59 countries.

Silver means "An excellent beer that may vary slightly from style parameters while maintaining close adherence to the style and displaying excellent taste, aroma, and appearance"


Fevre River Ale™ Hefeweizen

NABA GOLD Award Winner 2014, NABA Bronze Award Winner 2013!

A classic Bavarian style wheat beer that is straw in color and somewhat cloudy due to the yeast in suspension. The yeast gives the beer a medium to heavy mouth feel yet it is very refreshing due to banana and clove overtones. This beer finishes with a light hop flavor that is smoothly notable.

(IBU 10, ABV 5.3)


Miner’s Treasure™ Amber Ale

One of our most popular offerings, this ale is deep amber to mahogany in color and has a clean toasted and caramel malt taste.

The beer has a medium to light mouth feel that is lightly hopped. It has a sweet finish which is reminiscent of raisin bread.

(IBU 24, ABV 5.0)


Farmer’s™ Blonde Ale

NABA GOLD Award Winner 2015!

This is our lightest ale which has a very crisp and refreshing flavor with a pleasant malty sweetness and a brilliant white head.

Finishing with a hint of citrus hop, it is a great introduction to craft beer for the explorer, but enjoyed by connoisseurs just the same.

(IBU 13, ABV 4.0)

Thirsty Squirrel

Pecan Nut Brown Ale

A full bodied nut brown ale with a tasteful malt complexity, complemented by a sweet, nutty flavor and aroma from 40lbs of roasted honey glazed pecans. 

(IBU 19, ABV 5.6%)  


Seasonal Brews

Miners Hammer

Miners Hammer (Amber Ale... on Steroids!); ABV 7.8%, 20 IBU
A twist on our Miners Treasure Amber Ale with the addition of an English yeast, roasted malts, and ...oh yes a few more ABV! A great fall ale!  

Buzzin Beery

Buzzin Beery (Blackberry Kettle Sour); ABV 5.5%  18 IBU
This is a wheat based beer with an infusion of over 4 Gal of 100% Blackberry slurry. - The kettle sour process involves inoculating the wort (before it is fermented) with lactic bacillus. This lowers the pH to 3.2 to give the ale the delicious tartness! 

5-Layered Beerito

5-Layered Beerito (Mexican Imperial Stout); ABV 7%  15 IBU
A smooth and complex stout base with 5 layers of goodness, layered in the brite tank: liquid cocoa, shredded/toasted coconut, Mexican vanilla beans, ancho, seco peppers and cinnamon sticks! 

Amigo Julio

Amigo Julio (Mexican Lager); ABV 5.3%  18 IBU
A full flavored lager featuring Pilsner and Vienna malt with the addition of flaked maize, honey malt and other adjunct grains. 


Shosholoza! ...Move quickly (Cold IPA); ABV 6.3%  50 IBU
This is Ndebele language. This new style of IPA fermented with a lager yeast at warmer temperatures producing a light, crisp, mildly bitter profile with a higher alcohol level that includes a juicy kick from a heavy dose of dry hopping. Enjoy the aromatics of strawberry, melon, citrus, and pine. Although strictly a lager, this new beer style demands a quicker fermentation pace than typical lagers...hence the name "Shosholoza" (Move quickly!)  "Shosholoza" is a traditional miner's song, originally sung by groups of men from the Ndebele ethnic group that travelled by steam train from theirs homes in Zimbabwe to work in South Africa's diamond and gold mines. The Ndebele live predominantly in Zimbabwe near it's border with South Africa.
