German Pilsner

Clean, crisp, bitter German lager with balance toward hops in both aroma and flavor. Light cracker notes from malt and a complex bouquet of floral, herbal, and spicy notes from noble hops.

Berliner Weisse

Also known as the “Champagne of the North”, Berliner Weisse is a very pale, refreshing, low-alcohol German wheat beer with a clean lactic sourness, very high carbonation, and a light bread dough malt flavor to support the sourness.

Belgian Dubbel

A fruity, deeply malty ale that remains light-bodied with a dry finish. First brewed by Trappist monks and then by commercial breweries due to popularity.

Cream Ale

More malt flavor and a bit more fruitiness than American Lager. Very similar to Kolsch, but often with a corny adjunct character. Clean, well-attenuated, flavorful and easy drinking American “lawnmower” beer.
