Bells Brewery The Planet Series: Neptune - The Mystic
With Neptune, our Planets Series comes to an end. Inspired by one of Larry Bell’s old homebrew recipes and the music of Gustav Holst, this complex, strong and spiced Imperial Stout offers prominent herbal notes along with flavors of chocolate, roasted malt, licorice/anise and pepper with a touch of heat. Reminiscent of a mystical creation brewed in days gone by, this beer is a good candidate for aging due to the robust characteristics of its ingredients.

Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales Luciernaga
The Firefly, an artisan pale ale brewed in the Grand Cru tradition. Enjoy its golden effervescence and gentle hop aroma. Coriander and Grains of Paradise round out the spicy palate, melting o so softly into a silken finish of hoppiness and bliss! Make any season a celebration!

Short's Brewing Spruce Pilsner
India Spruce is an Imperial Pilsner, fermented with local, hand-picked blue spruce tips. The spruce presence, rooted in historical brewing practices, is enormous and gives the beer a refreshing gin quality. This beer is impressively light bodied, considering the immense spruce flavors and the prodigious additions of hops.

Southern Tier Brewing Harvest Ale
Harvest Ale is our celebration of the changing weather and the sowing of hops and barley that will be used in our upcoming brews. We usher in the fall with a classic English style Extra Special Bitter of the highest order. Deep ruby in color with an even deeper hop flavor… in fact, we throw fresh English hops into every brewing vessel, then dry hop after fermentation to impart a zesty kick. This beer has real hop character that mingles with fresh malted barley for an experience that will make you wish it were fall year ‘round.

Roak Brewery Around the Clock Session IPA
Carefree and good-natured, that's the direction we took when brewing this smooth, dry-hopped, light-bodied session IPA.  Its robust hop aroma and flavor are pleasing to the palate, with tasteful notes of citrus fruit and a slight bready malt balance. 
Beer Advocate score not yet available.
 
Roak Brewery Powerboat Belgian White
Brewed in traditional Belgian style with fresh Michigan water, Powerboat delivers a refreshingly crisp flavor with a dry, slightly tart finish and subtle notes of orange peel, coriander, and honey.  It's admired for having a light golden hue and naturally cloudy appearance, and celebrated for its dense, white pour with great retention.  In addition to a bready, spicy wheat flavor with a zesty fruit balance, its complexity can be enjoyed and shared with friends all year round. 
Beer Advocate score not yet available.
 
Roak Brewery Mean Street Amber Ale
Mean Street Amber Ale is a smooth and classic as the cars that made Detroit famous.  This amber ale is medium-bodied with an off-white head.  We blended superior American and European malt with top-quality hops to craft this balance drinkable ale.  The malt creates a pleasant backbone of sweet, biscuit-like flavors balanced by just enough hop bitterness to create this distinct amber ale. 
Beer Advocate score not yet available.
 
Roak Brewery Live Wire IPA
Live Wire rocks intense hop aroma and flavor followed by a crisp bitterness that strikes the taste buds with each sip.  This distinctive IPA is amber in color with a slight haze and a long-lasting off-white head.  It features quality malts that add a proper biscuit-like balance and complexity.  Unfiltered and dry-hopped with a heavy dose of hops, Live Wire boasts a citrusy, fruity, and floral hop aroma that will light up the senses in a shockingly refreshing way.

Roak Brewery Devil Dog Oatmeal Stout

At Roak we took two things that we feel strongly about: our beer and our nation's veterans, and came up with Devil Dog's Oatmeal Stout, a tribute beer for the WWII K-9 fighting unit.  It's full-bodied and hearty with a dark pour, thick head and complex flavors with hints of espresso, chocolate, and toasted oats. 
Beer Advocate score not yet available.

 


Atwater Brewing Michelada
Mix up some craft beer, pickle and lime juices, bloody mary spices and a dash of made-in-Detroit marketing mojo, and presto!  An all-new craft Michelada product has launched in Michigan, jointly created by two growing Detroit brands, McClure's and Atwater Brewery.  We now have it folks!  Come and get it.

Brewery Vivant Tropical Saison
Our rustic biere de garde yeast lends just a hint of tartness to our pineapple and mango infused Tropical Saison. We wax on about "dreaming of a summertime beverage", but truth be told it really has been a dream of ours to marry the biere de garde farmhouse ale with a tropical fruit salad. And that, my friends, is why you open your own brewery. So you can brew what you dream about.

Southern Tier Brewing Right-O-Way IPA
Right-O-Way IPA is brewed as a Session India Pale Ale with citrusy hops and floral aromas. These flavors, with the addition of lightly kilned malts and moderate hop bitterness, make Right-O-Way a refreshing and easy drinking beer. The sessionable 4.6% abv makes this one of the “easier” beers we’ve ever made. Enjoy it in your favorite glass or straight out of the bottle. Either way, make it Right-O-Way.

Cheboygan Brewing Blood Orange Honey
A unique twist on a great American-style wheat beer, with the addition of fresh local wildflower honey mixed with blood orange zest, and blood orange puree. The result is a medium bodied beer that is very smooth with a residual sweetness, and creaminess from the honey, and an exhilarating nose of citrus from the orange.

OddSide Ales Nectar of the Brewer
Apricot wheat.  Yep.

Paw Paw Brewing Citra Melon
Now in 16 ounce cans!

Weyerbacher Brewing Merry Monks Ale
At Weyerbacher we've recreated a Belgian Trippel without limitation. We use premium Pilsener malts, candi-sugar, and yeast strains- all imported from Belgium. To be true to the style, our Trippel is bottle conditioned. This means we add a bit of candi-sugar and yeast just prior to bottling. This imparts a special effervescence to the beer, a creamier carbonation, and also extends the shelf life. The on-going fermentation inside the bottle will change the character of the beer as it ages, and you'll find it becomes dryer with age. You may want to lay down a few bottles for future evaluation. We suggest storing at cellar temperatures -around 55 degrees F- and away from light.

Green Flash Brewing Hop Odyssey Citra Session IPA
Our Citra Session IPA is brewed with high-quality Marris Otter and Vienna malt but the flavor is dominated by the Citra hops introduced throughout the boil and again in the dry hop for maximum aroma intensity. Notes of lemon, orange and grapefruit make this hop-laden brew a perfectly potable summer session IPA. 
Beer Advocate 89 points.
 
Green Flash Brewing Soul Style IPA
Our brewers rip-creating huge and complex double and triple IPAs at the pinnacle of craft beer enlightenment. Soul Style IPA is their effortless and pure manifestation of the single IPA. Simcoe, Citra and Cascade hops are layered, allowing bright tropical waves of flavorful citrus and floral notes to break gently on the palate. Get stoked on a laid back single and ride the wave to soothe your soul.

Lagunitas Brewing Little Sumpin' Extra! Ale
Lots of wheat for a curious malt complexity and leaving it light in color, but huge in flavor and satisfaction.  Net contents: Ounces and ounces of Malt, Hops, Yeast and water.
