Our Calico Amber Ale takes its inspiration from traditional English ESBs. Four types of malts give it a bold complexity, and our proprietary yeast strain lends it a fruity, madeira-like richness.
American Amber / Red Ale
An American Amber or Red ale is named more for its color (usually between a light amber and a dark reddish amber) than a particular flavor profile.
Most American Ambers tend to be more malt-focused in taste, although some have a more even balance between malt and hop flavors, although hop bitterness tends to always be low. Generally speaking, the malts are lightly toasted and slightly sweet caramel malt with the hops tending toward fruity and/or citrusy flavors.
Best served cool, around 46-54 degrees in a pint glass or beer mug.
Our flagship beer brings the Irish Red into the 21st Century of American Beer. We started with a solid Irish Red as a base, and blended it with some of the concepts that make American beer great. This beer is bigger, richer, and more flavor packed than its inspiration.
We first brewed Original Honey Brown Lager nearly 20 years ago. And we like to think every batch is still fit for a king. In the years since, Honey Brown has been brewed with the same premium barley, hops and pure Manitoba White Clover Honey to produce a great-tasting, medium-bodied lager.

Laughing Skull is a full bodied amber ale. Smoothed flavored and easy drinking, it develops a loyal following wherever it’s served. This beer pours a brilliant amber color, with an off-white head.
Amber Ale deftly balances a mixture of toasted grain & light caramel notes with a range of floral, citrus and herbal hop notes, capped by a clean bitterness. This balance of flavors makes Amber Ale quite versatile as a food pairing option, not to mention being rather tasty in its own right.
On a beautiful summer night in July while peaceful Danes rocked at Roskilde Festival and others sipped wine in their picturesque summer retreats, an apocalyptic tidal surge flooded the famous Ølbutikken in Copenhagen and drowned thousands of precious beer - Hop Flood is a bitter tribute to the he
Stunning in color, the West Sixth Amber (also known at the Deliberation Amber in our taproom) is perhaps our most beautiful looking beer. Yeast and hops take the backseat as malt shines with a crisp, biscuity zing. Flaked rye gives the impression of toasted rye toast and candied pecans.
