Bell's 30th Anniversary American Imperial Stout
(6-pack bottles)

Super limited! Email to reserve now!

An American Imperial Stout, Bell’s 30th Anniversary Ale is also a nod to another beer and one of the earliest examples of the style released here in the United States, Bell’s Expedition Stout. Flavors of dark chocolate and fruit meld to create a full-bodied, roasty stout. A fair amount of Polaris hops lend a brightness and a nice character that will help carry the beer in its early stages making it incredibly drinkable and interesting. Malt characteristics will continue to develop over time, so that beer drinkers who choose to cellar it can enjoy the beer for years to come. Check out this article from MLive about Bell's 30th Anniversary Stout!

Bell's Best Brown (6-pack bottles)

A smooth, toasty brown ale, Best Brown Ale is a mainstay in our fall lineup. With hints of caramel and cocoa, the malt body has the depth to stand up to cool weather, but does not come across as heavy. This balancing act is aided by the generous use of American hops.
Beer Advocate 86 points.

Epic Brewing Fermentation Without Representation Imperial Pumpkin Porter (22oz. bombers)

The essence of the fall!  This beer explodes with aromas of sweet Spices giving way to chocolate and roasted malt.  Flavors are reminiscent of fresh-cut pumpkin and chocolate and complimented by hints of clove, fresh Madagascar vanilla beans, nutmeg and allspice.

Founders Breakfast Stout (4-pack bottles)

The coffee lover’s consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and two types of coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.
Beer Advocate score 99 points!

Short's Noble Chaos (12-pack bottles)

My favorite Michigan Oktoberfest! Noble Chaos is an Oktoberfest/Marzen (German-style amber lager) with a subtle hop bouquet and toasted caramel malt flavors. It is a well-balanced beer that finishes fresh and clean. With a pleasant nose and medium body, this brew is a taste of the fall season.
Beer Advocate 84 points.

Starcut Ciders Squishy (6-pack bottles)

Squishy is a semi-sweet cider made with Michigan cherries. Ruby red in color with appealing sweet and sugary aromatics, this cider’s initial flavors of dark fruit shift toward a bold tartness that dries the palate between tastes.
Beer Advocate score not available.

Arbor Brewing Company Hoptown Brown
(6-pack bottles)

As days grow short, a chill sneaks into the evening air, and leaves burst into fiery reds and golds, we seem to instinctively put away the light quenching brews of summer in favor of bolder and more substantial offerings. Our autumnal imperial release is a seasonal celebration that has hop-heads and maltsters alike clamoring for more.. This full-flavored medium-full Brown IPA  weighs in at 7.3% with an enticing citrusy hop aroma and a full hop flavor.  We balance all that hoppy goodness with a rich and complex malty palate of caramel, toasted nuts, and chocolate. The perfect blend of dark earthy, toasty fall flavors and citrusy lip-smacking hops! Try it with sharp or pungent cheeses, rare steak or spicy sausage, and a good after dinner cigar.
Beer Advocate score not available.

New Holland Carhartt Woodsman (6-pack bottles)

Celebrates craftsmanship and hard work. Locally-grown Cascade hops bring a brightness to this barrel-aged American pale ale. Malt sweetness and toasted oak combine for a smooth, refreshing finish.

Hello beer-lovers!
My name is Carlin, and I've replaced Jorge as the Wine & Beer buyer at The Produce Station! Not only have I spent the last nearly three years working hard in different roles here at the store (from cashiering to marketing to cheesemonger-ing), I've also developed a love for fantastic beverage. Great beer and wine are truly my passions, so I couldn't be more excited to be in this new position! Please feel free to contribute feedback and/or requests to me via email or in person. I'm looking forward to meeting and relishing the wonderful world of craft beer with you!

Brewery Vivant Pumpkin Tart
Belgian brewers are inspired by their local agriculture. Living in the midst of a rich agricultural heritage our Vivant brewers find it quite natural to be inspired in this same way. A Michigan autumn heralds color tours, corn mazes and bountiful pumpkin harvests (4th in the nation, last we checked!). This rustic beer is fermented with real pumpkin and a hint of Fall spices. Our farmhouse yeast yields a delightful tartness that sets this pumpkin beer apart.

Greenbush Dunegras IPA

With a strong malt backbone, a combination of west coast and German noble hops and a shining finish, Dunegräs is an IPA in its own category: a Midwest IPA.
Beer Advocate 86 points.

Prost! Our take on this classic German style is a celebration of maltiness— packed with rustic, autumnal flavors to put a little more oomph into your oom-pah-pah.
Beer Advocate 90 points.

Beer Advocate 88 points.
Lagunitas Hop Stoopid (22 oz. Bombers)
A Double-Barrel Dose of Malt and Hops
The beer with a guarantee built right into the name, this one is destined to blast through the flavors from the night before. Massively dry-hopped for your aromatic pleasure.
Beer Advocate 93 points!

Arbor Brewing Company Violin Monster
A geographical approach to the werewolf legends results in the identification of a major werewolf area stretching from mid-Germany into the Netherlands and Belgium.  With this in mind, we have created a strong, dark, spiced using ingredients from those regions. Brewed with Midnight Wheat, warming spices, and a hint of brown sugar, the Violin Monster is black as night and packs a punch at 9.5%.  Unleash your inner beast with Violin Monster Dark Ale, but beware…. it finishes with a bite!
