A Columbus forward IPA that is balanced with Amarillo hops and a medium body and malt sweetness. Straw colored and slightly hazy from hop particles. Check it out!



A temptress who will seduce you, Sweet Josie is crafted in the American Brown style. This is a complex beer balancing a nice hop bitterness with a generous amount of chocolate and aromatic malts. Check it out!



Harvest Time Pumpkin Ale is a subtly spiced fall ale brewed with real pumpkin that will evoke memories of holidays and family. It is brewed with our own proprietary blend of spices that will make this one of the best-recieved pumpkin ales available. ABV: 5.5% Check it out!


HELL’S BELLE is a subtle but complex ale that is meant to be a showcase for our favorite Belgian yeast and beautiful Belgian malts. These elements produce a clean, spicy citrus finish. Hell’s Belle remains light and refreshing but still packs a 7% finish. ABV 7.0% Check it out!
