Draft Beer

Frankenmuth Old Detroit  5.6 ABV
A full-bodied, reddish brown ale with medium maltiness and low bitterness.

Arcadia Sky High Rye  6.0 ABV
A West Coast-style Pale Ale with rye malt, Sky High Rye boasts a massive floral aroma of resinous hops. The hops contribute flavor notes of lemons, peaches, and pine needles, combined with the sweet, malty flavors of toffee and bread. Rye adds a pleasant peppery, spicy note like a fresh slice of pumpernickel bread. Very well-rounded and very drinkable, Sky High Rye will surely inspire adventure in all who taste it.

Arcadia Rapunzel  6.4 ABV
A wheat IPA, as blond as her hair and worth sneaking out the window for.

Atwater Dirty Blonde  4.5 ABV
Made with unmalted wheat, coriander and orange peel to help you live smart and enjoy everyday.

Ace Perry Cider  5.0 ABV
It is made from apple and pear juices. We use champagne yeast in all our ciders and ferment for 10-14 days. We then cold-filter 4 times and carbonate them before putting into bottles or kegs. The ingredients are all natural juices. It is 5% alcohol by volume with a lovely pear nose and a smooth semi-sweet mouth feel with a dry finish.

Bell’s Two Hearted Ale  7.0 ABV
India Pale Ale style well suited for Hemingway-esque trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and incredible floral hop aroma.

Bell’s Oberon  5.8 ABV
An American wheat ale made with European ingredients. Belgium wheat malt and Czech Saaz hops provide a spicy, fruity balance to this seasonal ale.

Blue Moon  5.4 ABV
An unfiltered wheat ale spiced in the Belgian tradition for an uncommonly smooth taste.

Bud Light  4.1 ABV
Introduced nationally in 1982, Bud Light is brewed with a malt and hops ratio different from Budweiser for a distinctively crisp taste with fewer calories.

Leinenkugel’s Summer Shandy  4.2 ABV
A Shandy is beer brewed with a little something extra. Leinenkugel’s® Summer Shandy® is crisp wheat beer brewed with natural lemonade flavor which makes it a perfect summertime refresher for those sun-splashed summer days.

An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatics and a clean finish.

Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA  6.0 ABV
60 Minute IPA is continuously hopped — more than 60 hop additions over a 60-minute boil. (Getting a vibe of where the name came from?) 60 Minute is brewed with a slew of great Northwest hops. A powerful but balanced East Coast IPA with a lot of citrusy hop character, it’s the session beer for hardcore enthusiasts!

Goose Island 312 Urban PA  5.4 ABV
The origin of 312 Urban Pale Ale was inspired by the success and the brewing experience from Green Line Pale Ale, a Chicago-only, draft-only beer, that supports Goose Island’s environmental and sustainable initiative. 312 Urban Pale Ale is Goose Island’s first year-round, national offering within the popular Pale Ale craft beer segment. This sessionable, yet tasty Pale Ale is one that will allow more individuals to have access to the craft beer market.

Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter  5.8 ABV
Complex, roasty aroma with a bittersweet, chocolate-coffee taste and a bold hop presence.

Hideout Coconut Almond  7.0 ABV
Great toasted coconut flavor. Finish with a great malty taste.

Magic Hat Dream Machine IPL  5.7 ABV
Dream Machine, an India Pale Lager or IPL, is a melding of varied visions of an India Pale Ale and an Amber Lager. Once poured, its light copper color delights the eyes and a citrusy hop aroma flows through the nose. Upon first sip, a smooth hop bitterness reveals itself – fresh, bold and slightly spicy – before subtle hints of mild maltiness appear. A big hop bite and a crisp, clean lager finish combine for a beautifully balanced beer. Take Dream Machine for a spin and let your reverie begin.

Midland Copper Harbor Copper Ale  5.3 ABV
Copper colored, clear Ale with off white head. Smooth, crisp, easy drinking. Lite hop aroma, slight grainy flavor. Delicate malt finish. Great opportunity to expose the non craft beer drinker to craft beer.

Miller Lite  4.2 ABV
This carefully crafted pilsner uses the finest ingredients and brewing techniques to ensure rich, full-bodied beer taste at only 96 calories.

Mt. Town Brewing Co. Coal Stoker’s Blackberry Ale  5.8 ABV
An American style wheat mixed with blackberry juice and a touch of our Steam Engine Stout to create this dark fruity ale. To those that claim they can only drink one fruit beer or that they don’t enjoy them at all, please give this one a try. The blackberries are deliciously subtle giving this wheat ale/stout blend just that little something extra that keeps them coming back for more. Easy drinking by itself or, like the raspberry wheat, a great beer to enjoy with dessert.

Mt. Town Brewing Co. Cow Catcher Red  5.8 ABV
A medium bodied ale, red in color with a malty finish. This crowd pleasing ale has plenty of hop presence to balance its malty sweetness. It appeals to drinkers with all levels of craft beer experience; yes we mean you college girl, and you too Mr. seasoned beer professional. Experienced veterans of craft and the newly initiated can both call this brew their favorite. Pairs well with football and pizza, soup and a fire, or your backyard barbeque. Take some home to your sweetie tonight!

Mt. Town Brewing Co. Railyard Raspberry Wheat  5.6 ABV
An American style wheat mixed with 100% fresh raspberry juice. Stand back. This is a beer brewed with raspberries, not a raspberry beer. The real raspberry juice we use adds something special to this wheat ale rather than taking something away. It can be, and is, enjoyed by all types of beer drinkers. It especially pairs well with fruit salads or just about any type of dessert. Or, consider it a dessert all on its own; who doesn’t enjoy beer for dessert? And, just because this beer has fruit, don’t think it is some powder-puff beer. Even the most rugged mountain man will enjoy this one.

New Holland Poet Stout  5.2 ABV
This stout is sheer beer poetry. Let it warm to about 45 F and pour it into a glass to fully experience its rich, roasty flavors and hints of coffee and chocolate. One glass and you’ll agree: The Poet is truly a rich, creamy brew of epic proportions.

Pabst Blue Ribbon (PBR)  4.5 ABV

Right Brain Smooth Operator  3.8 ABV

Shorts Huma-Lupa-Licious  6.8 ABV
This gem is honored with the name of the hop plant, Humulus lupulus, and is Short’s best selling India Pale Ale. It has such an abundant amount of hops that it sensually provides a punch to the palate. The numerous hop varieties used in its creation render a delicious bitter taste and enticing citrus aroma. The hearty malt bill melds with the hops to create a perfect balance.

Starcut Cider 6.5 ABV
Pixie Stick is a semi-sweet cider fermented with a Belgian yeast. Pixie Stick has a vibrant yellow color, tangy fruit aromatics, and an initial bold tartness. However, the perfect candy-like sweetness balances and contrasts, taking over in the finish, with a moderate dryness and subtle spicy notes.

Stella Artois  5.0 ABV
From this ‘land of beer’ comes Stella Artois, the most acclaimed of Belgian beers. Stella is Latin for star – a symbol of outstanding quality and taste that’s been perfected by the Artois master brewers since 1366.

Tri-City Hell’s Half Mile  6.0 ABV
Hell’s Half Mile is a German style Helles Lager that is pale gold with a creamy white head. Helles is German for bright. Hell’s Half Mile has an appealing grainy aroma with a slightly sweet malty flavor yet perfectly balanced with traditional noble hop characteristics. Don’t let the light color fool you! This full bodied beer is complex and refreshing!

Craft Bottled Beers

Bell’s Third Coast 4.8 ABV
Third Coast Old Ale focuses on malt, offering notes of burnt caramel & other earthy malt flavors. Designed with vintage aging in mind, the malt aspect is matched to a heavy complement of hops. Sharply bitter at first, this will fold into the malt character over time and balance out the maltiness.

Blue Point Hoptical Illusion 6.2 ABV
This classic American style IPA features a rare hop exclusively grown on a farm in Oregon. One taste of the Hoptical Illusion and you’ll know why Blue Point bought the entire crop.

Offered in six packs and on draft, Hoptical Illusion is tantalizing the tastebuds of beer lovers from Montauk to Manhattan.

Golden naked oats mashed with dark crystal and robust roasted malts create a luscious black brew with a satin smooth finish.

North Peak Dubious Black Chocolate Stout 5.3 ABV
North Peak Dubious is a Dark Chocolate Stout that has the perfect combination of chocolate, roast and black malts resulting in a smooth rich beer. Judicious use of hops bring out a complex, yet subtle bittering finished off with a big Goldings nose.

Its call is intoxicating. An aroma that beckons you to pull up a stool and linger over its toasted malt character.
