Local Apple Cider
Our approach is simple: recreating historic and forgotten styles of beer from around the world tapping into ancient brewing processes, ingredients, and recipes. We want to stay true to the styles of brews our ancestors would have consumed, whether that be beer, cider, or mead, in an effort to preserve what history created.

Known as one of Mozart’s go-to beer styles, the Horner Bier was popular during the 1700s and 1800s, originally created in Horn, Austria. Brewed with 100% oats as the base and cream of tartar. Crisp medium body with slightly tart mouthfeel and a lingering dry finish. Low hop presence that balances the full oat beer body. Brewed for the 2023 Beer City Guild Pro-Am competition in collaboration with local Homebrewer Paul Curran!
Gaudeamus (Gaw-Day-Ah-Mus) translates in Latin to ‘Let Us Rejoice’, commonly used as part of a commencement song at English universities. A Belgian Pale, Gaudeamus has a sweet body with crisp carbonation, bubblegum esters and fruity hop notes, with a dry finish. As the song goes – Gaudeamus igitur, Iuvenes dum sumus – Let us therefore enjoy [life] while we are [still] young.
Second in our limited series of beers paying homage to our favorite television doctor, this time as a German Blonde. Dr. Reid is crisp, light in body, slight hoppy, with slight banana esters. One sip and you’ll be saying “Frick!” it’s so good.
A precursor and a near carbon copy to Pale Ales, Best Bitters found their start when brewers switched from wood and peat to carbon fuel for kilning malts. Long known as the National Drink of England, Best Bitters came after the decline in Mild Ales’ popularity as a more drinkable alternative and better balance in hops, yeast, and malt profiles. Crisp, malty body, clean bitterness with herbal notes and a dry finish.
Next in our S.M.A.S.H. (Single Malt and Single Hop) IPA series is the Rakau SMASH, utilizing another hop from our Cloud Piercer New Zealand Pilsner. Clean and crisp with notes of citrus peel, Rakau SMASH has a dry finish with lingering hop presence.
CAT’S OUT OF THE BAG
Sticke, translating to secret, was first brewed in Dusseldorf, Germany around the 1830s. The Sticke style was created by heavy handed brewers to create a more formidable version of Altbiers, sharing their secretive special brew with a select few. Think of it as a more robust Altbier – in malt, hops, and alcohol content. Cat’s Out of The Bag is our 2nd anniversary collab brew with 3 Gatos Brewery – make sure to try their anniversary brew the next time you’re in Wyoming!
DEAD IN THE LAUTER
In celebration of Día de los Muertos, Dead in the Lauter is a Dark Mexican Lager with biscuity caramel notes, medium body, and a dry yet soft mouthfeel.
THE DUKE SAYS NEIN
The Duke of Bavaria was ultimately the reason for the Reinheitsgebot, otherwise known as the German Purity Law, effectively putting out of production brews such as the Kottbusser. Brewed with the traditional wheat, oats, honey, and molasses, The Duke Says Nein is a gold medal award-winning clean ale with Kölsch yeast. Light and refreshing. On draft and in cans!

Translating to ‘old beer’ and brewed as a rebellious act against lagers, German Alt Ambers, more commonly known in Germany as Altbiers, originated in Dusseldorf, Germany around 1838. Olde Towne reflects the brewing techniques of yesteryear as a top-ferment creating a malty sweetness with a light hop aroma and medium bitterness.
Named after the royal horse race in celebration of the wedding between the crown prince of Bavaria and Princess Therese of Germany, Therese’s Green is our version of the popular festbier served at Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany!

Though the history of the style known today as porter is hotly debated, we’ve brewed this historic London beer as tribute to Ralph Harwood, the ale’s alleged creator. Low in IBUs with a slight smokiness, this porter’s drinkability has full flavor with a low ABV. On draft and in cans!
Born out of the growing Brazilian craft beer industry and the collab between craft and home brewers, this style is kettle soured with lacto and fermented with pink guava. Lightly hopped and slightly tart with a clean malt bill.

Norse mythology regales the tale of a goat (heidrun) that would feast on the foliage of the læraðr tree, producing mead for soldiers who died in battle and were brought to Valhalla. Heidrun’s Cauldron pays tribute to those valiant soldiers; a clean viking-style mead inoculated with lutra kviek yeast and fermented with local honey.
Our heather flower-infused mead is inspired by a touching tale of a Scottish lass and her dearly departed husband. With multiple heather flower additions and a base of raw local honey, this mead is mildly dry and highly sippable.
