Crafts On Tap
Stirring from the haze of winter, this refreshing unfiltered White Ale awakens its smooth wheat with the bright snap of spring spices. From the subtle sweetness of orange peel and plum to the peppery bite of fresh ground coriander, the blend of spices creates just the right refreshing kick to signal that spring is on its way.
Nice, old school IPA that harkens back to a time when IPAs were a bit more bitter and a little less approachable and fruit forward. No one form of IPA doctrine has really captured me, but I do dig something like this. Great stuff!
Poured into a pint glass, this is an almost clear golden hued shade of amber, with a bif, off-white head that left lots of lace in the "beer neglige" pattern.
Big, grapefruity and spicy hop aroma to this. Pretty sure this isn't a NE-style IPA.
Big, hoppy, grapefruit-like flavor as well, but with a substantial malt backbone, at least when compared to similar IPAs brewed on the west coast or the PNW. I've come to feel this is not unusual for Midwest IPAs. In this one, it doesn't stick out to the point where it's distracting to me, but it's just a little different. There's also a piney, sappy bitterness to this that offers a counterpoint to the sweeter, citrusy notes. Kinda reminds me of what is becoming the old school PNW IPA.
Medium bodied, with a thick, oily and resiny mouthfeel.
Extremely good flavor, smell, and feel. This "palesner" is very good quality for a decent price. A hoppy taste, but not overbearing. A good choice for any occasion. Highly recommended.
If you've ever spent time in a German Beer Garden, you know how much they love their wheat beer. Our Bavarian style Hefeweizen is a satisfying blend of sweet wheat and pale malts, clove and banana aromatics, and the zesty tang of wheat beer yeast.
This 4.2% sessionable sour is truly a product of creativity, ingenuity, and luck. In the summer of 2013 we took a test batch of our sessional sour summer ale, Provincial, that didn’t quite hit gravity, and decided to have some fun with it! We added a heavy dose of raspberries. The end result was so delicious, we decided to recreate it! This delightfully tart fruit beer is refreshing, with a citrusy raspberry aroma which transitions to a subtlety sweet and tart finish.
Everything about the beer from the look to the taste is exceptional, but the true category that brings the score of this beer up for me is nostalgia. From college days to a long day fishing, there's few beers I'd rather throw back and have 10 of than this easy drinking average light beer. Especially on a game day!!!
Crisp and refreshing Belgian cider made with hand-picked apples
This traditional light pilsner has a yellow clear color with a 1/4 inch head when poured from a bottle. It has a clean malt aroma. And a crisp faint creaminess that flavors best with a barbecue brisket burger or smoked pulled pork sandwich. Reminded that it is a light beer it finishes as just that, light body and less fullness.
A Red Ale brewed in the Irish tradition with UK malts providing a light, toasted caramel profile and finished with a healthy amount of American hops for a fresh, moderately citrus aroma.
Pours clear amber. Thin head. No smell. Doesn't look like much at first but it has great flavor. Heavy malt body. Biscuit finish. Really fantastic character. Reds are hard to get right. Great Lakes nailed it.
Decent head and good lacing. Color is light caramel with little cloudy. Smell is nice floral. Flavor is piney, tea tones, little bit of grapefruit, with a crisp, bitter finish. This is a great IPA from Columbus.
Drift into winter with Snowdrift Vanilla Porter, back by popular demand as our Winter standalone. A fuller-bodied brew with hints of cocoa, coffee and caramel brought out by roasted malts and aged on real vanilla, our Leinenkugel’s Snowdrift Vanilla Porter is smooth and creamy, making it perfect for warming up winter.
SAINT ARCHER GOLD
THE ULTIMATE LIGHT BEER
The idea of Saint Archer Gold was born out of the Saint Archer team’s commitment to following the path less travelled, and the realization that sometimes when you’re going down a road unseen by others, you might want a light for the journey
Muted black with a 3 finger tan head that recedes at a moderate pace to a thin ring and sparse film. Smell is packed with freshly, mildly roasted coffee. Just absolutely dominant, with slightly nutty, slightly fruity attributes. A little porter-like cola runs in the background.
Tangy on the tongue, fruity, mildly roasted coffee dominates here also--and the coffee really does have a delicate, red fruit undercurrent, with a little nuttiness. Again, I detect a touch of cola, and a relatively strong amount of acidity, which allows the bitterness to build over time due to the coffee overload.
Feel is slick, smooth, lightly carbonated with a very dry finish likely helped along by the coffee.a.
The taste is a mix of Hershey/milk chocolate, roastedgrain, light bitter coffee roast, and vanilla
A classic. Mainly roasted malt, with a touch of cream and milk to it
