Score: 3.51
Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouthfeel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.

Our tribute to the Scottish Highlands, this beer offers a gorgeous garnet color joined by the aroma of ripe plums and freshly-baked biscuits.

This West Coast-style Pale Ale is brewed with 80% English barley malt and 20% rye malt. It boasts a massive floral aroma of resinous hops, contributing notes of lemons, peaches and pine needles and anchored by sweet, malty flavor of toffee and freshly-baked pumpernickel bread.

Score: 4.01
Aged for 12 months in 10-year-old Kentucky bourbon oak barrels in abandoned limestone mines accentuates a robust sweet maltiness and slight herbal hop bitterness. This alluring dark liquid hides within it undertones of vanilla, oak, cocoa and coffee. But beware, at 12% a draught of this fine ale just may be your ticket straight down to Davey Jones’ Locker!
Cereal Killer Barleywine

# Ratings: 9,497
Score: 3.74
Brewed in the tradition of English-style barley wines, Cereal Killer offers an explosion of full-bodied, liquid goodness. Robust malty flavors converge with caramel, toffee, molasses and dark fruit notes to produce a remarkably complex and palate-pleasing beer. Its intense malt character is complemented by a subtle citrus finish from the Crystal hops. With cellar-aging, Cereal Killer’s flavor evolves further, developing a sherry-like aroma and flavor similar to a cask-aged port. Winner of the Silver Medal for Barley Wine Style Ale at the 2007 GABF.

Sail away to the tropics with our new mango infused IPA! Golden in color, like that of a sunset in the islands, it’s body is gently topped with a frothy white sea foam head. Tropical aromas of mango, pineapple, papaya and citrus gently play off a bright hop profile with a slight malt nose. Flavors follow the aroma but expose the juicy hop bitterness and flavor of Simcoe, Amarillo, and Summit hops with a slight hint of Pilsner and CaraPils malt. The relatively dry malt body is gently accentuated by the sweet mango flavors, brought straight from the islands of Barbados.

Coffee Porter brewed with BIGGBY COFFEE ® The beer lover’s consummate coffee beer, a perfect marriage of rich coffee and creamy porter.

Belgian-style Strong Golden Ale. Tremble before Apollyon, The Destroyer, for herein is a beer that requires careful handling. Produced using a technique that amplifies the intense apple/pear fruitiness of Arcadia's house English-style yeast, the result is a straw-colored Belgian-style strong golden ale that hides its strength carefully. Obscured by intense honey notes, hints of cotton candy, fresh-baked bread, and a wickedly dry, crisp body, we took to calling it Apollyon in homage to the Belgian tradition of naming beers after "devilish" figures. Unlike the king of locusts, the only truly dangerous part of Apollyon is how enjoyable and refreshing it is.

Motörhead, Camerons Brewery, and Global are proud to announce that Röad Crew is officially coming to the USA and being brewed by Arcadia Brewing Company of Kalamazoo, Michigan.

This golden, bright, funky sour ale is a celebration of flavors as well as Arcadia Brewing Company's 21st Anniversary! This unique ale started with a base of strong golden and brown ales, blended with barrel-aged sour ale, and a multi-strain culture pitched after primary fermentation. The addition of peaches and apricots during the aging process gives this ale strong flavors of tropical fruit, as well as a pleasant acidity, mild barrel flavor, and warming character. Funk aromas mimic fermented peaches and apricots, paired with a mild oak and alcohol heat. A dry mouthfeel with bright carbonation rounds out this unique and delightfully complex wild ale. Purchase a bottle-conditioned, limited edition bottle and let the flavors develop!
The Devil Went Down To Gary

Sometimes inspiration can come from the strangest of places. This is exemplified in Arcadia's first American Pale Ale, The Devil Went Down to Gary. If you asked the brewer who conceived of this delicious, tropical beer he would tell you it came to him in a dream after falling blissfully asleep under a palm tree on a stretch of beach on Lake Gary in Gary, Indiana. While an intriguing description, it does not begin to exemplify this delicious, hoppy yet fruity American Pale Ale. Brewed in our new 100bbl closed fermenters with American Ale Yeast, a divergence from our 21 year old proprietary yeast strain. Dry hopped with Mosiac and Citra, tropical and hoppy flavors and aroma are balanced by a solid malt backbone. Light copper in color with a creamy white head, you'll never guess at 7.7% it's so easy to enjoy a pint, or two!
Hopmouth Double IPA

This remarkably balanced brew has a deep amber hue with a generous white head. Hopmouth showcases a rich, toasty flavor and sweet caramel notes as a result of the high-quality Maris Otter malt, imported from England. The hops are right up front in the aroma, reminiscent of citrus and pine, while the resin-like flavors linger well after the last sip.

This spiced amber ale is our celebration of the arrival of Autumn. Brewed with cinnamon, all-spice and nutmeg (a riff on Grandma Davies’ pumpkin pie recipe), and additions of Caramel and Crystal malt for balanced flavor, drinkability and a brilliant orange-amber color, despite the absence of pumpkin in the recipe. A refreshingly spicy, season brew.

IBUs: 47
# Ratings: 19,877
Score: 3.44
Dry-hopped with Cascade hops in our open fermenters, our IPA boasts a bright floral aroma and flavor reminiscent of pine and lemon peel. The pronounced hop bitterness is balanced by a medium-bodied caramel and biscuity malt character with a nutty finish. It showcases many subtle earthy bitter notes, rather than the resinous citrus-rind bite often featured in many American-style IPA’s. Silver medal winner in the Classic English-Style Pale Ale category at 2015 GABF.

Take a trip to the lost island of Porter Rico, where the cacao and coconut live in harmony and frolic the sandy shores.

This Imperial IPA has an assertive aroma of sticky, resinous Summit hops. A complex flavor profile includes notes of grapefruit, lemon peel, and spruce. Though the flavor focus is on hops, a trio of malts provides a balance to the beer, creating a delicious level of palatability.

Rapunzel’s up-front blast of aromatic hops ushers your palate into a balance of crisp, sweet, malt character and lush, juicy hop flavors of pineapple, citrus, and lemongrass.

The triple choclate stout is a unique interpretation of the style, combining three different chocolate malts, cacao nibs and 63 percent semi-sweet chocolate, making it a sinfully delicious brew. The addition of blackstrap molasses produces an earthy, caramelized tone in an already complex flavor profile. It's creamy, milkshake-like mouthfeel earns this beer the distinction of being dessert in glass.

Massive in every way, B-Craft delivers a complex bundle of flavors with citrus-hop aroma. Moving beyond the massive hop aroma, rich roasted malt flavors of coffee and chocolate move forward only to be checked by an impressive hop bitterness. Texture and flavor dance together so seamlessly that you may need to remind yourself that, while it drinks like a session, it delivers like an assassin.

A sweet, tart refreshing fruit wheat beer fermented with red and black raspberries as well as blueberries. Hazy fuchsia in color topped by a white head with a hint of pink, this beer looks as sweet as it tastes. Aromas of raspberries, blueberry skins and bready malt match its slightly dry flavor while wheat malt accentuates the tartness of the berries. Its medium-light body and effervescent carbonation make it a perfect summer refreshment.

London Style Porter
Style: Porter - English
ABV: 7.0%
IBUs: 22
# Ratings: 4,777
Score: 3.52
Travel to a time of brewer's lore, when smoke was spelled "smoake," when dark beers held the collective hearts and minds of the people of merry old England. Believe it or not, back in the1850s, Porter ruled the beer world, and no one brewed Porter like the brewers of London. Drawing their water from the Thames, blending old and new batches, and experimenting with new types of malt, Porter evolved throughout the years, and probably at one time held some substantial smoakiness. Arcadia's London Porter draws on this rich historic tradition, but adds a few special twists to make it all our own. The flavor of London Porter is multi-layered, starting with a bold, pleasing sweetened coffee richness, which gives way to round and subtle smoke, much like a delicately smoked ham. Porcine sweetness is capped by a gloss of fig jam or cherry compote, fruity and complex. Faint pear and hay notes barely poke through, reminders that there are some delightful American Glacier hops under all the finery.

The strikingly authentic English-style pale ale is brewed with all-English malts and a pound-and-a-half of Pacific Northwest hops per barrel. It is medium-bodied, crisp and well-balanced with a flavor profile featuring subtle notes of caramel, toffee and toasted malt, counterbalanced by the ideal level of hop bitterness. The delicate herbal hop finish is produced by Goldings whole leaf hops.
