Emerald Circle- Made by Northwest Hopheads, for Midwest Hopheads. This aggressive IPA is brewed with Maris Otter base malt along with Light Crystal, Aromatic and Vienna malts to add complexity to the malt bill.

Which are added throughout the boil and then later dry hopped. 6.5% ABV 83 IBU
Horse Power - This house beer is a Double Pale Ale which lives up to its name. Maris Otter starts out our grist, followed by some Munich, Aromatic, and Light Crystal malts. For this beer we bittered with Magnum and Centennial, followed by late kettle additions of Cascade, Crystal and Styrian Golding hops which adds a depth of flavor and complexity to this beer.
7.3% ABV 63 IBU
Randy SMaSH- Single malt, Single hop beer with Maris Otter malt and Rakau hops from New Zealand. The Rakau impart slightly tropical and lemon characteristics to the taste.
4.9% ABV 45 IBU
Working Title Wheat- Citrus dominates the front end of the nose, followed by tropical fruit in the finish. Working Title is bittered with Chinook, followed by late kettle additions of Motueka and Rakau hops from New Zealand.
