Our Beer

Flagship Beers

Birch Bark-Blonde Ale

ABV: 5.4%

It’s hard to visit the Northwoods of Wisconsin without seeing the white bark of a birch tree. This blonde ale has a light body, but enough flavor for even the most avid beer drinkers.

Boom Decker Becker-IPA

ABV: 6.8%
Legend has it that Boom Decker Becker continues to haunt Merrill’s school forest as he has for over 100 years. However, our IPA is nothing to be afraid of. It is crisp, refreshing and well balanced. Much like this historic ghoulish figure, people will tell the story of our IPA for years to come!

Rip Saw-Irish Ale

ABV: 5.8%
A rip saw is a tool that is specifically designed to make a cut parallel to the direction of the wood grain. Our Irish Ale is reddish-brown in color, with sweet maltiness and minimal bitterness.

River Hog Oatmeal Stout

ABV: 5.5%
A River Hog was a man who rode on logs floating down the river heading to a sawmill. He was responsible for risking his life by dislodging possible log jams. These men were bold, strong, and courageous. The first two words fit in perfectly with our Oatmeal Stout. The third is how you’ll feel after having a few pints.

Walk in the Woods

ABV: 5.2%

Take a “Walk in the Woods” to find a wheat ale brewed with real fruit puree. The appearance comes from the haze of the wheat and the deep purple of the berries. This spritzy drink is semi-sweet and has a clean finish.

NEW

Bock Lager

ABV: 6.4%

This copper-red German lager is medium bodied, lightly hopped and brings notes of sweet maltiness that linger pleasantly on the plate.

Fox Red-Vienna Lager

ABV: 5.5%

Fox Red is a bright, crisp version of a classic European amber lager. The toasty, bready aromas are followed by a malty, slightly sweet flavor that finishes clean. Say “G’day Mate!” and get yourself a glass of this Austrian inspired beverage.

Oh Heck Yeah-Hazy Pale Ale

ABV: 6.6%

This isn’t the haziest or thickest double dry hopped beer we’ve created but it’s hoppy, delicious and will have you saying, “Oh heck yeah” after one sip. Citra and Sabro hops are the stars of the show in this brew.

Flapjack Gravy-Breakfast Pastry Sour

ABV: 5.4%

Everyone knows that a breakfast beer is the most important beer of the day. This sour ale was brewed with raspberry, blueberry and blackberry purees with additions of maple syrup from the Krueger Crew, vanilla and cinnamon. Have this beer on the side of a pancake breakfast or poured right on top!

The Cookie Monster-Cookies and Cream Pastry Stout

ABV: 8.2%

We took inspiration from our favorite chocolate wafer and cream cookies to create this pastry stout. This dark treat was brewed with cacao nibs, vanilla, marshmallow, chocolate wafers and milk sugar to create delicious flavors that only get better as the beer slightly warms.

Squatch Sauce-Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout

ABV: 10.5%

This big, burly imperial stout was aged in Driftless Glen Bourbon Barrels for a full year. Its thick, full body will cover your palate with complex notes of fudge, caramel, oak and vanilla.

Schwarzbier

ABV: 5.6%

Do not let the color fool you, this is a dark beer with a blonde soul. The color comes from the roasted malts but they do not leave big, heavy flavors. Instead, you get a dark lager that is very easy to drink. This truly is a beer for everyone. 

Porkie Pine-Pale Ale

ABV: 5.4%

Some regions have white pines, some have sugar pines, but in the Wisconsin Northwoods, we now have Porkie Pines. This west coast pale ale was brewed with Cascade and Centennial hops to bring classic flavors of grapefruit and resin that are balanced with a caramel malt finish.

Baboon Lagoon-Kettle Sour

ABV: 5.2%

There was no monkey business when it came time to make our next tart, tropical beer. This tasty concoction was created using passionfruit and pineapple purees in combination with dragon fruit powder, vanilla and milk sugar. *Contains Lactose*

Dunkel Brau-Brown Lager

ABV: 4.8%

Our latest homage to classic beer styles, Dunkel Brau, is a light bodied, highly drinkable brown lager. This is a malt forward beer that isn’t too sweet and has slight notes of biscuit and chocolate. We hope you think it is “Sehr gut”!

The Legend-Wee Heavy Scotch Ale

ABV: 6.5%

This is a beer for the person who always has a story to tell that seems a bit too unbelievable, or maybe they gave themselves the nickname of “The Legend”. The beer is a full-bodied, malty sweet amber ale. Seven different grains were used to give complex flavors with notes of dark caramel, toffee, chocolate and molasses.
