A lightly hopped, refreshing, Bavarian style wheat ale that has hints of banana and clove in the finish. Available May until October.
  Herb Superb
This India Pale Ale is brewed with English Maris Otter pale malt and Chocolate malt, giving it a dark color and is generously hopped with English Fuggles hops. Named for mug club member and brewery supporter Herb Caldwell.
Inspired from a conversation with good friend and editor of the Great Lakes Brewing News, Bill Metzger, Brewmaster Steve blended a Belgian Amber Ale with 120# of Michigan Harmony peaches from Husteds Farm Market in a merlot cask. 4 wild yeast fermentations later and yet another cask aging results in an exquisite sour peach ale.
  Kilt Tilter
Our version of a Scotch Ale is made with a portion of peat smoked barley. Very malty, with a subtle smoky finish. Also available in a barrel aged version.
  Mandeau Man Ruby Red
This deep red ale is named after one of Steves' favorite mandolin players, Jimmy Gaudreau, who has played with Tony Rice, J. D. Crowe, Robin & Linda Williams, Chesapeake, Bennet Auldridge and Gaudreau, and many aother notable bluegrass players. Malt is in the forefront balanced nicely by English and North American hops.
  Old Cedar
Named after a drawing of an old cedar tree growing out of a cliff on the Lake Superior shoreline done by friend and artist Ladislav Hanka, this beer is copper colored and hopped with American Centennial and English East Kent Golding hops.
Every winter 300 hardy Telemark skiers converge at Mt. Bohemia and the Porcupine Mountains ski areas for three days of back country touring, lift served high speed runs, chili cook offs, and dancing and beer drinking to Finnish Reggae, Bluegrass, or whatever else comes out of the woodwork. Steve brews this hoppy American Brown Ale in honor of his good friends and ski buddies from all over the Midwest and Canada who attend. Rich, malty, and dry-hopped to perfection. Available December through March.
  Thoms Special Ale
This deep copper colored Ale is named after Steve's homebrew buddy Thom Phillips, who has had a part in helping to formulate some of the final Ale recipes at the Livery. Hints of caramel make their way through the aromatic bitterness of Centennial hops.
Brewmaster Steve took his Belgian Amber Ale and re-fermented it in a merlot cask with 100# of sweet Michigan cherries from Husteds Farm Market. He than moved the resulting beer into another cask with 30# of tart cherries. 5 fermentations due to wild yeast and 9 months later, we have our version of a Belgian Kriek. Named after our good friend and musician, April Verch.
  Yorkshire Brown
Brewed in the style of Northern England, this brown ale is dark and rich, with just a hint of chocolate malt and East Kent Golding hops in the finish.
