Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts, a bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark fruit. It’s a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate. Distribution Note: Now available year-round beginning April of 2018.

Solid Gold
Style: Lager - American Light
ABV: 4.4%
IBUs: 20
# Ratings: 55,242
Score: 3.44
Our brewery was built on an attitude of no regrets. An attitude of taking risks to bring the best beer possible to our fellow renegades and rebels. Never brewing to style, but always brewing what we want to drink. Our take on a classic, Solid Gold is a drinkable premium lager brewed with the highest quality ingredients. Challenging what a lager can be? That’s something we won’t regret.

Belgium style fruit beer.
Curmudgeon's Better Half
Style: Old Ale
ABV: 12.7%
IBUs: 45
# Ratings: 1
Score: 0.00
Curmudgeon is an old ale brewed with molasses and aged on oak; it becomes Better Half after aging—for 254 days—in bourbon barrels that have more recently been aging Michigan maple syrup. As a result, Curmudgeon’s Better Half is a bit sweeter than her miserly counterpart.
Dankwood
Style: Red Ale - Imperial / Double
ABV: 12.2%
IBUs: 65
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.50
What do you get when a big, bold imperial red IPA meets an oak bourbon barrel? A palate stunner that’ll send your senses spinning or, as we like to call it, Dankwood. Rich caramel notes emerge from the depths of the IPA, highlighting strong malt character while the bourbon barrel-aging develops the complexity. A dank, sticky and slightly sweet sipper, Dankwood is the perfect alchemy of wood and hops.

Blushing Monk

# Ratings: 1
Score: 3.75
Blushing Monk is brewed with a ridiculous amount of raspberries and with a Belgian yeast strain that keeps our head cellar operator from sleeping for a week. It pours a stunning deep berry red and, at 9.2% ABV, has a surprising kick. The perfect dessert beer, it can be enjoyed on its own or paired with fresh cheeses, fruit, cakes and more.

Devil Dancer
Style: IPA - Triple
ABV: 12.0%
IBUs: 112
# Ratings: 79,255
Score: 3.97
Founders most complex, most innovative, most feared and yet most revered ale produced. Massive in complexity the huge malt character balances the insane amount of alpha's used to create this monster. More IBU's than any brewery has documented, more than you would believe and dry-hopped for twenty-six days straight with a combination of 10 hop varieties. Dangerously drinkable and deliciously evil. We dare you to dance with the Devil.
Curmudgeon Old Ale
Style: Old Ale
ABV: 9.8%
IBUs: 50
# Ratings: 78,718
Score: 3.84
Brewed with molasses and a focus on malts, then oak-aged. The result is a strong, rich delight that’s deceptively smooth and drinkable.
Dark Penance
Style: IPA - Imperial / Double Black
ABV: 8.9%
IBUs: 100
# Ratings: 73,990
Score: 3.85
A heavy malt foundation includes Crystal malt for sweetness and just enough Midnight Wheat malt to push the color to black. The bitterness is huge, but balanced by malt sweetness and alcohol burn. The hop flavors and aromas range from citrus to floral to pine thanks to a delicious blend of hand-selected Chinook and Centennial hops.
Pale Ale
Style: Pale Ale - American
ABV: 5.4%
IBUs: 35
# Ratings: 67,281
Score: 3.54
A testament to Cascade hops in a bottle, this medium-bodied pale ale has a refreshing citrus flavor and a distinctive floral hop aroma due to the aggressive addition of hops during fermentation. You'll notice a slight malty sweetness with a balanced hop finish. Perfect to enjoy anytime, anywhere.
Nitro Oatmeal Stout
Style: Stout - Oatmeal
ABV: 4.5%
IBUs: 38
# Ratings: 61,407

Brewed with flaked oats, chocolate malt, roasted barley and Nugget hops. Nitrogen-infused for a creamy mouthfeel and attractive cascade effect.
Lizard of Koz

Score: 3.83
This one is near and dear to our hearts. Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki wanted to make the birthday of his little sister, Liz, a special one. So he did what he does best and brewed a stout using a few of her favorite ingredients: fresh Michigan blueberries, rich chocolate and vanilla aged in bourbon barrels to round out those beautiful flavors. Liz was floored and we think you will be too.
Harvest Ale
Style: IPA - American

IBUs: 70
# Ratings: 56,868
Score: 3.95
Each fall, our brewhouse looks more like a greenhouse as thousands of pounds of wet hop cones arrive within hours of being picked by some of our favorite local hop growers. Acting quickly, we then load up these wet hops into what will become Harvest Ale – an impossibly aromatic and bright IPA bursting with fresh pine, melon and citrus notes. Our ode to the beauty that is the wet, American hop.
