tap list 01/21
1) Wake Zone – Vanilla Espresso Porter ABV: 5.7%
Our Our Base Porter, aged on Madagascar Vanilla and Cameron's Espresso beans. Perfect for the start or finish of any day whether you are on the lake, on our patio or in the taproom.
2) Barrel Aged Snapped Line – Bourbon Barrel Aged English Dark Ale ABV: 10.4%
Whether you just got off the ice or tied the boat up to the dock, it’s time to kick back a glass of this beautiful, smooth, bourbon barrel finished English Dark Ale. With dark molasses cookies in the mash and fresh chopped ginger in the boil, this strong bodied brew mellowed for months in Kentucky Strait Bourbon Whiskey Barrels.
3) Oatmeal Stout – ABV 6.1%
Blend of English and MN malted grains, along with a hefty percentage of rolled oats and Fuggle hops, gives this stout a
smooth, old-world taste finished with local pride.
4) Thermocline – Cream Ale ABV: 6.3%
Smooth mouthfeel and evenly balanced with cluster hops. This brew is a crowd favorite for those
seeking a lighter bodied beer without sacrificing small batch craft taste.
5) Reel Good Double IPA ABV: 8.0%
West coast style, created using midwest pilsner malt. Doses of Centennial and Citra hit the boil while Simcoe, Galaxy and Mosaic all add to the distinctly dry-hopped finish. Being on the lower end of the ABV scale for a double means you get to enjoy another sooner.
6) Small Harbor Tug – Light Ale ABV: 4.2%
An all-American light ale that is sessionable enough drink while you mow the lawn, shovel the sidewalk, or sit and watch a couple games on TV. With American 2-row barley and north American hops, there is nothing small about this beers flavor and clean finish.
7) Hard Astern Full - Hazy IPA – ABV: 7.1%
If you're looking for a hop forward IPA with a citrus kick, this is your pint. We combined Rahr's new North Star Pilsner with oats and wheat for a super clean finish to a visually cloudy beer. If you've got a favorite hop, its probably in here too. Azzaca, Citra, Simcoe, Julius, Chinook, Galaxy and Mosaic all make their way into the tanks as well.
8) Paul's Footprints - Red Logger ABV 5.9%
Clean and crisp with a slightly sweet caramel finish that is balanced out by Hallertauer hops. Just like the Big Red Logger himself, this beer came about from a strong Minnesota background and the over 10,000 lakes attributed to his treks across the Northwoods. Grab a pint and find out if it's more than just a tall tale.
9) General Quarters – American IPA ABV: 7.2%
On a naval ship, “General Quarters” is the alarm call for battle readiness. In our taproom, it means pale and amber malts blended with plenty of American Pacific Northwest hops. This brew was collaborated on by our head brewer and a few of our loyal IPA drinkers and is the perfect sailing partner for any beer lover who prefers a balanced bitterness in their glass.
10) Personal Flirtation De-weisse – Cherry-Razz Sour ABV: 4.5%
Two rounds of sweet and tart fruit went into the first 5Gallon Friday to ever get a “Crowler Release”. Sweet Cherries and Raspberries give a pink twist to a traditional Berliner Weisse.
11) Soren Saison ABV: 6.1% ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
The first beer in our “Brewed With Heart” series and named after our brewer's son, this beer incorporates a few German malts and Czech hops into a traditional farmhouse style Saison.
12) Winter Ale - ABV 6%***It's Back!!!***
Barley and Rye malts lay the full-bodied foundation for a blend of Centennial and Cascade hops along with mulling spices, molasses, and MN harvested maple syrup. Perfect for avoiding shoveling your driveway or celebrating a big catch out on the ice.
13) Deck the Hulls – Cranberry Cinnamon Helles ABV: 6.4%
Cranberries and cinnamon give a distinct, festive finish to one of our favorite styles, the German Helles.
14) Pontoon Pilsner - Minnesota Pilsner ABV: 5.0%
Light, bright and easy drinking. All of the pilsner malt comes from our friends at Rahr, just down the road, and the classic crisp finish owes it presence to Triple Pearl hops from Mighty Axe in Foley, MN.
15) Candy Cove Kolsch – Kolsch Style Ale ABV: 5.3%
SA German style blonde ale that is fermented at lager temperatures. It takes a few extra days in the tanks but is certainly worth it. Have a pint in the taproom or take a can out on the boat next time you end up in the most happening spot on PL's body of water.
16) White Squalls - Hard Seltzer – ABV: 4.7%
Variety of flavors to add to the base seltzer. Light, crisp and delicious for anyone on a hot summer day.
17) North Sea Siren – Matt's Mutiny Fest Bier ABV: 5.8%
Our assistant brewer, Matt, put together his Mutiny and timed it perfectly with the approaching fall and one of our favorite holidays. Biscuit and Munich malts layer in smooth flavor on top of a steady base of premium German Pilsner. Combining that with Hallertauer and Perle hops gives this seasonal brew the perfect balance of refreshment and bite for the biergarden.
18)Cider Style Graf – ABV: 4.6%
Refreshing graf that you can enjoy on any Minnesota day. Malted Sorghum provides the base and Select Cider lends the sweetness to those looking to reduce their gluten intake.
