MAYFLY MAIBOCK

STRONG GERMAN LAGER

BIG DRIFT WHITE IPA

WHITE IPA

7.3% ABV | 50 IBU

Cascade, Simcoe, Mosaic, Chinook and Citra hops present grapefruit citrus aroma and notes of apricot and pine. Orange and lemon peels, coriander and grains of paradise provide complex spicy character to balance the smooth flavor of malted wheat. Slightly tart and very thirst quenching, this unique beer took home a variety of awards and is one of Tamarack’s most popular seasonal brews.

OLD STACHE

BARREL-AGED IMP. PORTER

11.5% ABV | 30 IBU

Imperial style porter aged three months in fresh American oak whiskey barrels. Big, bold and smooth whiskey flavors with dark chocolate covered fruit and oak, and a burnt caramel backbone.

 

Brewed once a year for release on Lanny’s birthday, February 16th, this year’s batch focuses on balance in simplicity. Four malts and two hops. Low carbonation level, and it is intended as a slow sipping beer, letting the beer warm up, allowing the full flavors to come through.

Our newest IPA is hazy and is sure to bring all the boys to the yard. The flavor explodes in your mouth with notes of strawberry and subtle sweetness and a soft malt body. Carrying both citrus and tropical fruit from noble Huell Melon hops...juiced more than Barry Bonds.

HEADWALL IIPA

DOUBLE INDIA PALE ALE

10% ABV | 85 IBU

Pine needles dripping with resin and farmers market funk dominate the nose of this beer, and the first sip will assault your palate with hop flavor as intense as a Chuck Norris high leg kick. 

As the flavor progresses, the intense pine fades and a hoppy wave of tropical fruits jump on board to take a ride down the middle of your palate and into your belly, which will soon be glowing.

2016 Alpha King Champion

Currently available at the Lakeside location. Growler and crowler fills available. Limit 3 pints per customer.

Medium bodied, light in alcohol, so our friends can enjoy multiple dark beers without bloating. This black ale is full of flavor, but won’t kick your teeth in; Forever prayin’ for snow.
