    Beers Of The Month | September 2022

    Featured selections of Craft Beers created by local Fox Valley area brewing companies.

    Atom Smasher

    Our Oktoberfest-style lager (7% ABV) is oak-aged, providing added layers of depth to the signature flavors of roasted malt, caramel, toasted vanilla, and toffee found in Marzen-style beers.

    Viking Red Ale

    Stockholm’s Viking Red Ale (5.2% ABV). Amber ale, balanced flavors of creamy, sweet malt and a gentle hop finish. We have found in our beer pairing dinners that this is our “miracle beer”. Pairing with many different types of food, Viking Red Ale brings out different enhanced flavors in both the brew and the dishes themselves.

    Snaggletooth Bandana IPA

    Assertive bitterness forged with a fresh Citra hop dwelling and a graceful detour to the grapefruit pineapple orange juice new of the prominent hop squall. For a tooth that doesn’t snaggle at all, this bandana flies with the outstretched love of the rainbow hands. Now in its tenth year of production with our brewery and recently voted one of the Best Looking Cans of the Year by Ceros.

    A Great American Beer Festival Medal Winner, our Oktoberfest Lager, “Fruhauf,” is clean, malty, and just dry enough to enjoy as the weather turns from hot to cool. At 5.4% ABV and deep amber in color, this Märzen-style lager is to be consumed in your finest lederhosen or dirndl while eating giant pretzels in an endless beer garden.

    German Inspired Märzen – 6.0% ABV. Crafted with a select blend of German malts and hops that highlight a substantial Munich malt bready body to hoist a stein or two (or three) in your favorite fall season.

    This Märzen style lager has all the bready, malt character you’d expect from this style beer.  The classic German hops bring a light floral character to the aroma.  We pair the hops with classic German malts.  Flavors of soft pretzel are followed by bready light toast.  This beautiful golden amber lager finishes crisp and dry!
