Big Jack Horner (Plum English Barleywine)

The richest and strongest of the English Ales, yet not as hop focused as American versions. Historically English Barleywines were brewed for the winter or holiday season. A showcase of malty richness and complex, intense flavors balanced with higher levels of warm alcohol. We aged ours with fresh Michigan plums grown by the Meachum family at High Acres Fruit Farm in Hartford, MI, which add a pleasant, soft fruitiness to the background.

Cernunnos (Scotch Ale)

Traditional Scotch Ales (not the smaller Scottish Ales) are rich and intensely malty. Our version is full-bodied and sweet, yet has a smooth clean finish. Extending the boiling time promotes kettle caramelization, therefore providing a darker color, deeper malt complexity and slightly roasty flavor.

Ginjah Ninjah ((Imperial Red IPA)

This beer is just like its namesake- infiltrating your taste buds with a ginger kick, then stealthily sneaking in a taste of Michigan honey. Our Ginjah Ninjah is a Double Red IPA, hopped to perfection with a lethal dose of West Coast Centennial hops and a couple of quick stabs from fellow assassins, Citra and Amarillo. Expect a smooth body with a beautiful ruby hue and a dominating hop profile.

Little George (Double IPA)

Imperial or “double” IPA’s are intensely hoppy and strong pale ales. This style of beer is made with the intention to showcase as much hop character as possible. By keeping the body light and dry, it allows a balance of hop bitterness with the higher alcohol content. We brew our take with a significant amount of Simcoe & Columbus Hops for hop-head friends!

Unholy ’16 (bottles & draft) & Unholy ’15 (draft) (Belgian)

This O’Connor’s Home Brew Supply “2013 best of show” homebrew competition winner was so good we had to keep making it!

Compliments and thanks to Rob Qualls for this fantastic Tripel.

A classic Belgian-style ale originally popularized by the Trappist monastery at Westmalle, Unholy has a pleasant, soft malt base with flavors of orange blossom, vanilla and hints of cloves. Full-bodied with a warm alcohol, dry finish.
