Cask Conditioned Ales

Properly cellared, conditioned, and then served at cellar temperature (52°). Hand pulled from our four English beer engines.

 Great Waters House Ale
This is a medium to light bodied, copper colored ale. The pleasant hoppyness comes from East Kent Golding hops. The clean aroma helps balance the biscuit and caramel malts used in this English country ale.
O.G. 12P, 35 IBU'S, 5.0% ABV
 The Black Watch Oat Stout
Full bodied stout brewed with shelled malted oats and roasted barley. Coffee, chocolate, caramel and nutty flavors abound. Enjoy whilst guarding the royal jewels.
O.G. 15P, 45 IBU'S, 5.8% ABV
 Invidia Barley Wine
Invidia is the 6th of the 7 deadly sins, Tony's favorite. This American Barley Wine will be intensely malty with a dash of citrus hops.
O.G. 20.3P, 55 IBU'S, 9.9% ABV
 A Joe Moment Mild Ale
This English style brown mild has a light, toasty grain bill with just enough English hops to balance. This is a true session beer; good for havinga few of or for cleansing the palate. It's a bit of a tradition around here to have a mild named for the brewer's grandfather. It's a daunting task. Joe was a hard man to please, but he was there the day the Red Bull helped to save the free world on Anzio beach. You need to let a guy like that have his moments. His descendents sometimes find themselves having what we call "A Joe Moment". It usually involves a few expletives and/or projectiles. So if you find yourself having a Joe Moment, sit down with a pint and wait for it to pass.
O.G. 9.6P, 10 IBU'S, 4.1% ABV
 St. Andrew's Cross Scotch Ale
This strong Scotch Ale has a dark copper color and rich caramelized maltiness with just a hint of smoke and earthy hop notes. The crux descussata has been a symbol of Scotland since the eighth century after it appeared in the sky to an army of Picts and Scots.
O.G. 16.9P, 18 IBU, 8.1% ABV

We are also having some fun with our seasonal brews and with some of our regular offerings. We will be dry hopping, oak aging, tea bagging, and uff-duffing different beers, then tapping when ready. Each is casked in only two or three firkins, so 5-7 days is the average run. Yes, our cask beer is very popular with our friends, always fresh, CAMRA compliant, and seriously looked after in our 52 degree cellar.

Pushed Beer

Pushed with CO2, served at 38°F from our properly maintained draft tower.

 Golden Prairie Blond Ale
Refreshing light bodied golden ale, using noble hop varieties. Clean delicate aroma makes this one of our most popular beers.
O.G. 11 P, 18 IBU’S, 4.8% ABV
 Brown Trout Brown Ale
Slightly full bodied rich brown ale. Caramel and dark-roasted maltiness makes this satisfying brown ale a year round favorite.
O.G. 15 P, 35 IBU’S, 5.8% ABV
 Saint Peter Pale Ale
Medium bodied amber ale, with a pleasant balance of malt and hop varieties. Our pale ale has been a favorite choice since 1997.
O.G. 14P, 50 IBU'S, 5.5% ABV
 A Joe Moment Mild Ale
This English style brown mild has a light, toasty grain bill with just enough English hops to balance. This is a true session beer; good for havinga few of or for cleansing the palate. It's a bit of a tradition around here to have a mild named for the brewer's grandfather. It's a daunting task.

O.G. 9.6P, 10 IBU'S, 4.1% ABV
 O'Byrne's Irish Red
Rumor has it the boss was having a red ale when he decided to quit his successful job, hock everything he owned and open a brewery. Some say he had hair back then too. Caramel malt sweetness dominates this Irish Red Ale; Fuggle hops provide earthy goodness for the balance.
O.G. 12.4P, 25 IBU'S, 5.6% ABV
 Tartar Control IPA
This light copper colored IPA is loaded with summit hops for a citrusy and bitter finish. It was recently reported that hops really do help clean your teeth.
O.G. 15.6, 70 IBU, 7.1% ABV
