Ol' Tavern Lager
Pre-prohibition style American lager. Light and refreshing, made for ball games and yard work. We used our Midwest 6 row base malt, flaked corn, German Munich, and flaked barley, with some additions of Tradition hops. The result is a well-balanced lager with slightly malty sweet notes. This beer is a throwback to the Thieme & Wagner Brewery that produced local beer in Lafayette starting in 1858 and the brewery produced beer until 1953. The brewery was torn down in 1961 to build the Harrison Bridge from West Lafayette.

American Style India Pale Ale. We used an American base malt with an addition of Caramalt to give this now classic style a reddish hue. An aggressive use of Columbus, a high alpha hop with a full flavor profile, with Centennial and then dry-hopped with more Columbus. These are citrus hops with notes of pine and grapefruit. People's IPA is a hoppy yet smooth American twist on the English IPA.

Farmer's Daughter Wheat
American Style Wheat Ale. Refreshing crisp beer made with 60% malted wheat and lemongrass, resulting in a grassy wheat flavor with hints of citrus. We used our Midwest malted Harrington malt, caramalt, malted wheat, and Perle hops. Well balanced beer for the end of a long days work, light and refreshing.

American Style Brown ale.We used a lot of base malt and four different dark malts in this beer resulting in a complex malt character and a warming alcohol flavor. This is a great cold weather beer, warming and smooth to take away the chill. We balanced it with Kent Goldings hops.

Sgt. Bravo Pale Ale
This American Style Pale Ale is a well-balanced beer with a sweet malt character balanced with floral and citrus hops. Brewed with American Pale Ale malt and a touch of Caramalt, this beer has a light-medium body and a rich golden color. We exclusively used whole cone Bravo hops in the kettle and in our hop back to give this beer a bold hop aroma and mouthfeel. The perfect session ale for warm Hoosier days.

Nine Irish Ale
A traditional style Irish Red made with pale malt, Caramalt, chocolate malt, and a touch of Munich Caramalt. This ale has a caramel sweetness that fades into toffee flavors. It's balanced with East Kent Goldings and Fuggle hops to make for a smooth sweetness and malt complexity. Fermented with an Irish ale yeast at lower temperatures to keep ester production down and give a tasty malt character.
