OVERTIME – Porter / 5.6% / CREAMY-MEDIUM BODY
Porters garner a large portion of the dark beer segment of craft beer for good reason. They are smooth, full of flavor and very drinkable ( read low hop profile) and our Overtime Porter is no exception!
GREAT WESTERN – American Pale Ale / 5.8% / FRUITY HOPS – MEDIUM BODY
To provide for a balance of beer style offerings (man cannot exist on IPAs alone) we developed our recipe for an Americal Pale Ale. Since our debut location was at the end of the Great Western Trail, the name became obvious. So be sure to end your daily trail of toils and troubles with our fine American Pale Ale – Great Western.
QUIET MAN – Irish Red / 5.6% / ROASTED – MALTY
To describe this, I’m misunderstood. Roasted barley on hot firewood? Be you man or a lass, let’s just grab a glass. To all that I ask it’s just, “GOOD!”
BLACK MAMBA – Dark Coffee Cherry Lager / 6.4% / SMOOTH – COFFEE – CHERRY*
Black Mamba is a delicious smooth dark lager made with cherry juice and Yirgacheffe beans, an Ethiopian coffee known for its fruity tones.
SUNRISE HEFE – German Hefeweizen /4.5% / BANANA – CLOVE – WHEAT
Summertime is for drinking a light wheat beer, and there is no better style than a traditional german hefeweizen. Staying true to the style we use Noble and Saaz hops. Thus Sunrise was developed for the summertime, but it has become so popular we brew this beer year round. Watch social media for special summertime infusion releases with various fruit reductions (such as peach).
YELLOW STAR- West Coast India Pale Ale / 7.8% / CRISP – HOPPY – DRY FINISH
Another well-balanced hoppy IPA, with a nice golden color, some sharpness on the palate and that delicious hoppiness we strive for in all our IPA’s.
815 BREWNITED – Extra Special Bitter / 5.6 % / MALTY – MEDIUM BODY

A wonderful collaboration of an English Style – Extra Special Bitter (ESB) beer. So support your local team and local brewery and toss down a light malty smooth 815 Brewnited.
