3/10/2021 RETURNING!!!Živá Voda (Czech-style Pilsner, 4.8%) – Named for the “living water” of Czech fairy tales that heals infirmities and counteracts spells. Bohemian Pilsner Malt adds subtle richness and accents of clover honey, while the addition of traditional Saaz hops throughout the run-off and long boil give this beer the distinctive earthiness and spice associated with authentic Pilsners. Lagered for 6 weeks and brought to you for St. Joe’s Day and beyond.2/24/2021
NEW!!! Fun Size (Small beer w/Chocolate, Peanut Butter and Sea Salt, 6.5%) – Made from our Home-Baked second runnings. This beer is brewed with Maldon Sea Salt and then blended with cacao nibs and peanut butter deliciousness.

RETURNING!!! Sweep the Leg (Rice Lager, 4.5%) Utilizing a clean fermenting Kveik yeast for this “lager” might be deemed cheating by some, but we say do whatever it takes to win.
