CURRENT DRAFT OFFERINGS
Last updated June 20 2019
The beauty of our small brewhouse is that we have the flexibility to keep our beers in tune with the seasons and current trends. Our menu changes often and we hope you'll always come to our brewery with a sense of adventure.
You're likely to find an IPA or two on our menu, but we're also passionate about funky saisons, using local and wild ingredients, and we'll always have something interesting resting in a barrel. Stay tuned for those super-limited releases!
HOPS: German Hallertau Mittlefruh
Anti-Juicebomb! Bright, crushable no-nonsense farmhouse ale with complex fruity, peppery notes from our saison yeast and a fresh floral hop aroma from old-school German Hallertau Mittelfruh. Dry and refreshing!
STYLE: Mango Sour
HOPS: MI Brewers Gold, Mosaic
This sour ale is brewed with our house made our house farmhouse yeast and mango puree. With a classic spicy aroma and light body, this beer finishes soft but still tart and punchy!
STYLE: Wheat IPA
HOPS: Loral, Citra, MI Centennial
With a malt bill that's over 50% wheat, this hazy IPA is exceedingly drinkable with notes of orange pith and a touch of earth. Brewed with Loral, Citra and MI Centennial hops combined with local wheat from Valley Malt, Loral Canyon is delightfully juicy with a crisp, snappy finish.
STYLE: Dark Ale
HOPS: Mandarina, Mosaic
"In the Beginner's Mind there are many possibilities. In the expert's mind there are few" - Shunryu Suzuki (Zen Master) . This dark ale isn't brewed as a specific style but more as a combination of ingredients we think go very well together including a careful combo of roasted malts, flaked oats and Mosaic and Idaho 7 hops. Beginner's Mind is smooth and dark with a chocolatey malt finish.
We used some cool new techniques to create this brew including coolpooling and dual yeast fermentation. Those processes along with the Amarillo hops created an IPA that is just bursting with citrus. It's a soft, citrusy, lush delight that's low in bitterness and high in flavor.
You're likely to find at least one of these three ales on draft all year round. That's because they are tried, tested original recipes that never go out of style.
Clip Art may be outdated graphics but these illustrations range in format and style, and so does our rotating IPA series! We start with a blend of pale malts and Mosaic hops for the base, then add an additional hop varietal to each version to take center stage in flavor and aroma. So far, we have brewed Clip Art Citra and Clip Art Azacca. Our original Clip Art included Michigan-grown Centennial hops, and that recipe will resurface again as well. Look out for its following installments.
Bow St Session
STYLE: Session Ale
One of the first recipes we ever brewed, Bow St Session is our house ale brewed to celebrate our place in Bow Market, paying homage to our space, its historical context, and the spirit of innovation we hope to cultivate. This session ale was brewed with Idaho 7 and Grungiest hops, which provide strong notes of stone fruit. This was crafted as an all-around accessible beer, stylistically unrestrained. It is medium bodied, with a light tropical nose and a softer hop bitterness.
STYLE: Oat Pale Ale
HOPS: Mandarina, Mosaic
Melodic with notes of citrus and melon, Dream Pop is true to its namesake; a little alternative, but smooth. Using 25% oats in the malt bill gives a silky texture that balances well with Mosaic and a new-school German hop, Mandarina. This beer is unique and flavorful, and has been asked about enough that we'll keep brewing as long as folks keep drinking it!
