House Brewed Beers
On Cask We have on cask our Oma’s Altbier aged on American Oak. Cask ale is a small batch conditioning process
whereby we add a little something, like hops, and let it condition for a while in the cask.
Summer’s End (5.0% alc./vol. 20 IBU, Bronze GIBF ’13, Gold GIBF ’11 & ’10): Light; yet full flavored.
Made with German Kölsch yeast and German noble hops, ‘Summer’ is available year round.
Abbey Rye (6.6% alc./vol. 20 IBU): A traditional Belgian style Abbey Ale with an untraditional twist of rye. Rye
malt accentuates the already spicy and zesty flavors coming from the use of traditional Belgian Ale yest, and
increases the dryness, yet smooths the mouth feel. Brewed by your local, friendly downstairs “Monk”.
Oma’s Altbier (5.5 % alc./vol. 41 IBU Silver Medal Winner-Great International Beer Festival 2014): Oma’s Altbier
is German for “Grandma’s Old Beer.” This Altbier comes to us from an ale recipe that can be traced back hundreds
of years, hence the ‘Alt’ or ‘old’ designation. This rich and full-bodied beer is medium in strength and amber
colored. Its unique character is accredited to German specialty barley malts and distinctive German Ale yeast. Try
this for a big mouth feel, distinctive flavor profile and smooth finish.
Chair City Pale Ale (5.1% alc./vol. 31 IBU, Silver GIBF ’10): Our first pale ale is an example of the spicy, assertive
style of beer that can only be described as American. It uses American ale yeast and American hops in
a recipe that is designed to confront and engage your palate. Chair City is spirited, with a hoppy, in-your-face,
aroma. Its citrus and floral notes are the result of the chemistry of fermentation and the generous use of Cascade hops
in the later stages of the boil.
Vienna Lager (5.5% alc./vol., 25 IBU, Gold Medal – 2014 Great International Beer Festival): An amber lager
(named after the city in which the style originated), Vienna has a nice rich malt profile, low hop aroma, and a nice
balanced bitterness. Its toasted malt flavor comes from a combination of 9 different malts, with Munich and Vienna
malts dominating. German noble hops are used to balance out the malty sweetness. We love this beer, and the judges
XSB Extra Special Bitter (6.1% alc./vol. 41 IBU): Extra Special means a slightly more aggressive version of the
Bitter style of English ale. It is slightly more hoppy, a bit maltier, a little darker, a little more alcohol and a bit toasty
too! It’s a Bitterer Bitter! XSB is the English cousin to our Oma’s Altbier.
Facelift IPA (6.4% alc./vol. 72 IBU, Bronze – 2007 Great British Beer Festival): Loaded with English hops
and using a traditional English IPA recipe, this beer will happily lift your face as your palate explores its bitter,
yet smooth effect. Facelift’s up front bitterness gives way to full-bodied mouth feel and depth of flavor.
Naked Stout (3.6% alc./vol. 38 IBU Bronze Medal – 2012 Great International Beer Festival): This crisp, dry Irishstyle stout is typical of those made in England and Ireland. Ours contains hints of chocolate and coffee as a result of
the fermentation process.
