tuberfest_6packLagunitas Tuberfest- “The TuberFest is a smooth and malty lager that is counterbalanced with some delicious Pacific NorthWestern Idaho #7 hops, giving it a cedary, herbal zing… Brewed to jumpstart your salubrious slide into late-Summer. Ach!”  ABV: 7.5%.




arborviolinmonsterArbor Brewing Violin Monster- “A geographical approach to the werewolf legends results in the identification of a major werewolf area stretching from mid-Germany into the Netherlands and Belgium.  With this in mind, we have created a strong, dark, spiced using ingredients from those regions. Brewed with Midnight Wheat, warming spices, and a hint of brown sugar, the Violin Monster is black as night and packs a punch at 9.5%.  Unleash your inner beast with Violin Monster Dark Ale, but beware…. it finishes with a bite!”  Also available on tap at our Arbor Brewing Pint Night on Thursday!



arbormackinacfudgestoutArbor Brewing Mackinac Fudge Stout- “A roasty, dry stout made with real fudge for a subtle chocolate-fudge character without being sweet or heavy.”  ABV: 5.5%.  Also available on tap at our Arbor Brewing Pint Night!




mafka-website-imageArbor Brewing Mafka- “The staves were then pitched into a vat of specially blended beer (58% Khatta Kala Sour Stout, 36% Hothaus Harvest Ale, 6% Velvet Hammer) and left to age for 18 months. The results proved to be wildly successful (pun intended!). The scent of rich, black cherries on the nose carries through to a delicate mouthfeel on the palette, and a mild, sweet-tart finish with newly unleashed oak tannins.”  ABV: 5%.



arbordemetriusArbor Brewing Demetrius- “Arbor Brewing Company is proud to offer this exclusive, limited-edition, hand-packaged and bottle-conditioned ale in the Belgian Aged Pale tradition. Our interpretation of this rare Belgian style was created by aging our Mr. Delicious Imperial IPA for six months in gueuze-innoculated oak casks and then bottle conditioning for a minimum of two months. The result is a unique ale with a bright golden hue, moderate carbonation, and a burst of complex fruity, spicy, sweet-tart, and earthy flavors, with a quenching acidity in the finish. As with most bottle-conditioned ales, there may be a thin layer of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. For best results, uncork slowly and decant gently into a glass without disturbing the sediment.”  ABV: 9%.



boulevardbbquadBoulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad- “Based loosely on the Smokestack Series’ The Sixth Glass, this abbey-style quadrupel is separated into a number of oak bourbon barrels where it ages for varying lengths of time, some for up to three years. Cherries are added to make up for the “angel’s share” of beer lost during barrel aging. Selected barrels are then blended for optimum flavor. The resulting beer retains only very subtle cherry characteristics, with toffee and vanilla notes coming to the fore.”  ABV: 11.8%.  Now available in 4 packs!



ryeonryesazeracBoulevard Rye-on-Rye Sazerac- “Inspired by the success of our “X” series of special Imperial Stout releases, we’ve embarked on a journey to the outer reaches of our popular Rye-on-Rye. For the first Rye-on-Rye X release, Rye-on-Rye-on-Rye, we transferred our huge tawny rye ale from its first set of aging barrels into freshly emptied Templeton Rye barrels effectively creating a double barrel aged ale that showcased giant rye whiskey and barrel character. For the second Rye-on-Rye release, we drew inspiration from the famous New Orleans cocktail, the Sazerac. The official recipe is composed of rye whiskey, absinthe or Herbsaint, a sugar cube and bitters all garnished with a lemon peel. To translate this classic cocktail into a beer, we brewed batches of the base rye beer that received spice additions mimicking bitters as well as lemon peel during the boil. The resulting wort was fermented with our house Scottish ale yeast before being aged in freshly emptied Templeton Rye barrels.”  ABV: 11.8%.
