Great Taste Eve Eve Beer Release!


It’s the night before Great Taste Eve, which is the day before The Great Taste of the Midwest, so why not have a special beer release?!

Join us in our tasting room as we tap our Paint It Black Braggot!
Paint it Black is our extra stout brewed with honey. Soft barley, floral honey, and roasted grains provide a light fruitiness with a gentle edge. It’s been 3 years since we last made this one…
We will also be releasing our latest batch of our GABF Bronze Medal winning beer, Doppelsticke Altbier!
