    Shuck It

    A classic American Ale crafted with a few simple ingredients to showcase a native flavor that is light, crisp, & refreshing with just a hint of sweetness.

    4.6% ABV


    This sweet heat treat is hard to beat! Clocking in at a few thousand Scoville heat units, this is a painful pleasure everyone can enjoy.

    4.6% ABV

    Tropical fruit flavors with restrained bitterness and a smooth, full bodied mouthfeel

    6.5% ABV

    Colombian Bam Bam

    Freshly roasted single origin coffee crafted at Jen's Joe in Carbondale provides a bump of "pick me up" in this throat numbing, yet addictive beverage. Maple, rum, and coffee dominate the flavor profile.

    Double Bean Blonde

    A special blend of coffee from Cold Blooded Coffee was infused with real vanilla & added to our blonde ale. The coffee was cold steeped in the beer to deliver smooth flavors with no bitterness.

    Amber Lager

    Smooth, deep amber color with a malty taste that finishes clean

    4.3% ABV

    Honey shuckle

    We transferred our Shuck It beer onto enough local Honey fit for a queen bee. Goldenrod & ragweed provide the basis for a delicate floral aroma in this sweet nectar.

    7.0% ABV

    Oatmeal Stout

    A dark brown stout with chocolate, roasty flavors & a hint of caramel sweetness. Made with flaked oats to provide a smooth, rich body.

    6.2% ABV

    Brown Ale

    A malty golden-brown ale. Nutty and toasty flavors upfront with subtle hop character.

    6.0% ABV


    Hop in and enjoy a smooth ride wherever you are. Any king-of-the-road would give this ale at least one thumb out. Keeping flavor between the lines is what steered this beer to its final destination.

    4.3% ABV

    Strawberry Dream Saver

    Real Strawberries and vanilla are the dream team in this can of candy. Blast off into a new dimension of beer as swirls and whirls of flavor pass by.

    4.7% ABV

    Double IPA

    Double down with twice the flavor in this boozy IPA. Malty and caramel flavors up front with spicy, piney and resinous flavors through the finish.

    8.0% ABV


    A Czech-style Pilsner with a straw like color, brilliant clarity, and noble hop flavor. Although light in color, this lager has a noticeable malty character with a crisp finish.

    5.7% ABV
