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

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.

Orchard Delight-Caramel Apple Crisp Ale

ABV: 7.4%

This is a beer we made in collaboration with our friends at Rocky Reef Brewing Company and is sure to give you all the fall feels. We started by throwing 50lbs of graham crackers into the mash, loaded the boil kettle with lactose, vanilla and cinnamon, then finished things off with fresh pressed apples from Helene’s Hilltop Orchard.

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*

Sneaky Juice - Hazy IPA

ABV: 6.6%

When walking behind someone in Wisconsin it’s proper etiquette to say, “Ope, ‘scuse me, just gonna sneak past ya!” This beer is so smooth that it might sneak up on you and is full of juicy, citrus flavor from Mosaic, Idaho 7 and Citra hops. 

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”!

Futternudder-Peanut Butter Brown Ale

ABV: 5.7%

The best part of a peanut butter beer is having all the yummy flavor without anything stuck to the roof of your mouth. With a light body that isn’t too sweet, this beer is so good you’ll want a’nudder!

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.  

Kahuna Matata-Kettle Sour

ABV: 5.4%

Hakuna Matata is a Swahili phrase that means “No Worries”, Kahuna Matata is a tropical sour beer that you put in your belly. Worries will be the last thing on your mind after having this ale that was brewed with guava, passionfruit, mango and tangerine.

Barley Pop-Lemon Lime Lager

ABV: 5.0%

We created this pseudo lager using Voss Kveik yeast from Norway. Whether you say soda or pop doesn’t matter, we hope you enjoy this very light lemon lime beer.
