Cherry Vanilla Blonde

The little redheaded girl wanted some attention so we created this easy drinking cherry beer for her.

Auggie’s Garden Glo

A citrusy summer wheat brewed with orange and lemon peels along with coriander. This beer pays homage to Dick Therrien’s favorite dive bar on the East side of Flint. Whether it was stopping to meet Uncle Dave for a cold PBR, dropping off John Drinkwine on a rain day, or just stopping in to see if Gypsy Jack was sitting naked at a barstool.

Perfectly balanced and very drinkable. Just like you when canoeing the Platte.

Trinidad Scorpion Pepper Porter

Our Brown Porter kicked up a notch with flavors of chocolate and Trinidad Scorpion pepper. The Trinidad Scorpion Pepper was ranked the hottest pepper in the world in 2011 by the Guinness World Records. It held that rank until August 2017 when the Carolina Reaper took the top spot!

Jungle Fungus IPA

A light bodied session IPA featuring Mosaic and Simcoe hops. Citrus flavor notes. When I was a kid, a neighbor used to push mow his lawn with bare feet. He used to pay me a quarter for every pint of acorns I picked up underneath his oak tree because the acorns hurt his feet. My mom told me he didn’t like wearing shoes because he had jungle fungus.

5.3% ABV/44 IBU

The Conway New England IPA

This one exhausted all of our resources and skills to create, what we think, is an exceptional New England IPA. Brian “Conway” Pugh spent months perfecting the recipe so we could share it with you. Hazy and bursting with juicy hop fruit flavor. Consider this a gateway IPA for the non IPA drinkers of the world.

7.0% ABV/50 IBU

No Filter Nuske Rye IPA

American Rye IPA. People would always say “He has no filter!”… he’d often make Sandy and the boys cringe at his candid proclamations at the front of the store, although you could argue Sandy was more immune to them. He was honest. He didn’t know another way. Funny to a fault. Often at LABC you could hear him say with a big grin “I’ll take another one of those overpriced beers, but just a small one! Unless you’re buying? I know exactly how much it costs for you to make this stuff!” Naming a beer after John Nuske is the least we can do for a man that had such a lasting impact on the Village of Lake Ann. God Bless you John, you sure blessed us!

7.4% ABV/66 IBU

An original margarita flavor for this batch of hard seltzer: lime, lemon and a hint of salt.

Patio Pet Policy

We have allowed well behaved pets on the patio for several years now. Mostly to allow travelers to bring pets out of the car while enjoying a drink. We have had a large up tick of pets this summer which has added to an already chaotic summer of rules and regulations put upon us. Going forward, we ask that you only bring a pet if it is absolutely necessary, as we don’t want to have to make more rules.

Thanks, Matt
