Our Founding Flagships
Long Tom APA

High Cascade hop aroma, light-to-medium bodied, dry, slightly-bitter, and hop-forward with a malt finish. Highlighting the iconic aroma of an American IPA, the clean dry palate of a Blonde or Cream Ale, and the slightly-toasty/malty finish of British Pale Ale, our APA offers the best of all worlds.

Ingredients: Dakota (Vienna-style) Malt; Cascade Hops

ABV: 4.8%   IBU: 22   Color: 4 SRM   Bitterness Ratio: 0.45   Finish: 2.5° Plato

Trust Buster Scottish Ale

The perfect blend of hops, malt, and subtle esters on the nose, light-bodied, crisp, clean and refreshing with a very balanced finish. A “common,” or ‘lager-like’ blonde ale, designed for balance in all respects: not too sweet, not too bitter, not too hoppy, not too malty.

Ingredients: Pale Malt; Cascade Hop

ABV: 4.8%   IBU: 22   Color: 4 SRM   Bitterness Ratio: 0.45   Finish: 2.5° Plato

Rail Splitter Porter

Very little hop aroma, restrained roasted malt in front, full-bodied with a dry-to-slightly sweet and balanced finish. The perfect hybrid of London and American Porters, this beer is eminently smooth with a full presence on the palate, lacks astringency and bitterness, and is neither cloying nor overly-coffee like.

Dakota, Chocolate and Black Malt; Willamette Hops

ABV: 4.8%   IBU: 22   Color: 4 SRM   Bitterness Ratio: 0.45   Finish: 2.5° Plato

American Fabius Blonde

The perfect blend of hops, malt, and subtle esters on the nose, light-bodied, crisp, clean and refreshing with a very balanced finish. A “common,” or ‘lager-like’ blonde ale, designed for balance in all respects: not too sweet, not too bitter, not too hoppy, not too malty.

Ingredients: Pale Malt; Cascade Hop

ABV: 4.8%   IBU: 22   Color: 4 SRM   Bitterness Ratio: 0.45   Finish: 2.5° Plato

Our Seasonals
Lavender & Lemon Verbena Kölsch

Forward aroma of lavender with a sweet melon nose, light-bodied and dry with a well-balanced clean finish. Both the smell and taste mellow out to a crisp, German, lager-like ale with hints of vanilla.

Ingredients: Pale Malt;Cascade Hops; Lavender Flower Buds, Dried Lemon Verbena

ABV: 4.7%   IBU: 21   Color: 4 SRM   Bitterness Ratio: 0.43   Finish: 2.0° Plato

Dirty Politics Double Black
Oatmeal Stout

Aroma dominated by roasted barley and toasted base malt, followed by the rare combination of both the classic full body and the fleeting dry finish common to Irish-style stouts. A session drinker designed to drink like an Irish Stout but pack a slightly bolder flavor profile.

Ingredients: Dakota, Blackprinz, and roasted barley malt, flaked oats; Galena hops.

ABV: 4.3%   IBU: 35   Color: 42 SRM   Bitterness Ratio: 0.61   Finish: 1.8° Plato

Lavender Lemon Verbena Wheat

Forward aroma of lavender with a sweet melon and tarragon nose, light-bodied and dry with a well-balanced clean finish. Built upon an American-style unfiltered wheat beer, no banana or clove imparted from the yeast, but a hint of phenolic spiciness from the wheat itself achieved through a low temperature mash, a spiciness that blends beautifully with the lavender and lemon verbena.

Ingredients: Pilsner and red wheat malt; Galena and Mt. Hood hops.

ABV: 4.7%   IBU: 21   Color: 4 SRM   Bitterness Ratio: 0.43   Finish: 2.6° Plato

Don’t Fire Until You See the Whites of Their IPA

Prominent citrus and pine hop aroma, high bitterness matched by the perfect sweetness in the body, finishes dry and bitter like a proper IPA with a lingering malt aftertaste. An ode the best of both UK and US IPAs, our IPA has a healthy (slightly toasty) malt foundation, and the right amount of sweetness to match it’s high bitterness and assertive American hop aroma: An IPA for lovers of hops and malt alike.

Ingredients: Pale and crystal 120 malt; Centennial and Cascade hops.

ABV: 4.3%   IBU: 35   Color: 42 SRM   Bitterness Ratio: 0.61   Finish: 1.8° Plato

Holy Terror Whiskey Barrel-aged Porter

Our original Porter with a bit of extra depth: Little-to-no hop aroma, restrained black malt, dry and balanced finish. Always eminently smooth with a full presence on the palate, but a touch more guileful with the oak and whiskey nose and a creamy nitrogen pour.

Ingredients: Dakota, Chocolate and Black Malt; Willamette Hops.

ABV:5.3%   IBU: 35   Color: 33 SRM   Bitterness Ratio: 0.6   Finish: 3.1° Plato

Sage of Monticello Pale Ale

Derived from our Long Tom Pale Ale, our “Sage of Monticello” is another ode to Thomas Jefferson. The wild raspberries and sage in this pale ale were picked by our brewers and friends here in the Black Hills. It’s a crisp, dry, and refreshing pale ale with fleeting hints of raspberry and sage on the nose, with a lingering sage, hop, and malt aftertaste. It’s a subtle-yet-complex, generally easy-going beer.

Ingredients: Dakota (Vienna-style) Malt; Cascade Hops.

ABV: 5%   IBU: 40   Color: 10 SRM   Bitterness Ratio: 0.65   Finish: 3° Plato
