Our Beers



Flagship Beers

Bitter Earth

Bitter Earth ESB
Arkose Bitter Earth ESB is reminiscent of an English Extra Special Bitter. Deep copper in color, light bodied, and a flavorful earthy session beer with a complex malt profile and pleasing hop bitterness. Named after the great R&B tune “This Bitter Earth” and like the lyrics of this song, the earth is not so bitter after all and neither is this brew.
IBU: 26,  ABV: 5%

Boxcar Porter

Boxcar Porter
Arkose Boxcar Porter is soft and mild yet has substance. Roasted and caramel flavors are balanced with the delicate influence of three hop varieties. Dark in color, hold it up to the light and take in the ruby hues. Inspired by locomotive No 5 at the Palmer Depot.
IBU: 25,  ABV: 5.3%

Steed Rye IPA

Steed Rye IPA
A lively and spirited easy-drinking IPA featuring Magnum hops. Refreshingly satisfying with just enough hop aromas and flavors.

IBU: 70,  ABV: 5.5%

High Ridge Double Red

High Ridge Double Red

Festbier Dunkelweizen
Usher in the Festbier season with our Bavarian style dark wheat ale. Brewed with a nod to our “Deutsche” heritage, our dunkelweizen is tingly and tasty.
