Listed below are our regular ales, add to that a new delicious seasonal every month and you will find at our bar 12 taps of the freshest beer in town!
ANNA BELLE'S IPA - NABA GOLD AWARD WINNER 2013!! - A ruby beer with a burst of hop flavors and aromas are paired with a solid malt backbone and a clean and pleasant bitterness that lingers on the palate. Aromas of pine and citrus are prevalent due to heavy dry-hopping with a blend of West Coast hops. 16oz 4pk Cans: Available in our Gift Shop and at your local retailer (IBU 80, ABV 7.5)
Uly's Chocolate Oatmeal Stout
ULY'S DARK OATMEAL STOUT - NABA BRONZE AWARD WINNER 2011 AND 2013!! - President Ulysses S. Grant's (Uly to his friends) Chocolate Oatmeal Stout is what this ale is all about! Dark as the mines of Galena, this stout has a rich and creamy tanned head which leaves beautiful lacing in your glass as it is enjoyed. It's a full bodied ale with profound notes of chocolate and roasted malts which help to round out its flavor profile. Sweet coffee notes also linger on the palate to entice the next sip! Find out more about General Grant here! (IBU 38, ABV 5.7)
Uptown Brown Ale
UPTOWN BROWN ALE - WORLD BEER CUP SILVER AWARD WINNER 2012! - The Uptown Nut Brown Ale won a silver award in the Category 92 "American Style Brown Ale" This beer pours a deep chocolate brown color with light struggling to show through the edges of the pint. As a rocky off white head forms, aromas of roasted nuts and molasses pour from the glass. This beer is malt oriented with flavors of roasted malt and golden toasted bread and finishes quite dry with a noticeable but not overwhelming floral and earthy hop presence. The brewmasters favorite beer, this brown is sure to put a smile on your face. We dedicate this beer to Ely Parker, who served on General Grant's personal staff. Find out more about Ely here. (IBU 29, ABV 5.5)
Fevre River Ale
FEVRE RIVER ALE - HEFEWEIZEN NABA GOLD AWARD WINNER 2014, NABA BRONZE AWARD WINNER 2013!! - A classic Bavarian style wheat beer that is straw in color and somewhat cloudy due to the yeast in suspension. The yeast gives the beer a medium to heavy mouth feel yet it is very refreshing due to banana and clove overtones. This beer finishes with a light hop flavor that is smoothly notable. 16oz 4pk Cans: Available JANUARY 2015 in our Gift Shop and at your local retailer (IBU 10, ABV 5.3)
Miners Treasure Amber Ale
MINER'S TREASURE - AMBER ALE - One of our most popular offerings, this ale is deep amber to mahogany in color and has a clean toasted and caramel malt taste. The beer has a medium to light mouth feel that is lightly hopped. It has a sweet finish which is reminiscent of sweet raisin bread. (IBU 24, ABV 5.0)
Farmers Blonde Ale
FARMER'S BLONDE ALE - This is our lightest ale which has a very crisp and refreshing flavor with a pleasant malty sweetness and a brilliant white head. Finishing with a hint of citrus hop, it is a great introduction to craft beer for the explorer, but enjoyed by connoisseurs just the same. (IBU 13, ABV 4.0)
