Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale is our take on a classic American style of beer. We took a cold-conditioned cream ale, brewed with a hint of flaked corn and bourbon vanilla beans, and aged it in freshly decanted bourbon barrels for a minimum of six weeks. Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale’s medium body and 5.5% ABV make it the perfect barrel-aged beer for an all day event. ABV: 5.5%



MAHARAJA: 4/6C cases

Maharaja is derived from the sanskrit words mahat, meaning “great”, and rajan, meaning “king”. Much like its namesake, this imperial IPA is regal, intense and mighty. With hops and malts as his servants, he rules both with a heavy hand. The Maharaja flaunts his authority over a deranged amount of hops: tangy, vibrant and pungent along with an insane amount of malted barley – fashioning a dark amber hue and exquisite malt essence. Welcome to his kingdom! ABV: 10.0%



JASMINE TEA LAGER: 24/11 cases

Jasmine Tea Lager uses Jasmine Tea produced in Guangxi province. Each tea leaf is roasted with fresh Jasmine flowers at least six times in order to get the optimum amount of aroma, while adding fresh jasmine flowers to each roasting cycle. The tea is then brewed at a medium temperature for hours to extract the tea flavor but with minimal tannin extract, which adds to the final beer’s richness. The overall tea flavor on the beer is mild as to complement the lager quality of the beer, making this a very easy to drinking & refreshing beer. ABV: 5.4%



AMBER ALE: 1/4 kegs

The beer that helped build our brewery; Bell’s Amber Ale features both toasted and sweet caramel notes from carefully selected malts, balanced with herbal and citrus hop aromas. Capped by a clean bitterness, it’s incredibly versatile with food, but very tasty on its own. ABV: 5.8%

KALAMAZOO: 1/4 kegs

Named after the city where it all began, Kalamazoo Stout is one of our most classic recipes. This smooth, full-bodied stout offers a blend of aromas and flavors of dark chocolate and freshly roasted coffee, balanced with a significant hop presence. ABV: 6.0%


Following in the tradition of Czech Pilsners by offering a combination of firm malt and herbal hop bitterness, Bell’s Lager of the Lakes is as refreshing and crisp as a swim in the Great Lakes. ABV: 5.0%

OARSMAN ALE: 1/4 kegs

First brewed in 2008 at our original brewery in downtown Kalamazoo, Oarsman Ale grew out of our desire to explore the tradition of session beers and to create a unique, flavorful experience for everyone, no matter what the occasion. Tart and refreshing, this sessionable, bright Wheat Ale exudes citrus and lemony aromas from Cascade hops and trades sour intensity for finesse. A perfect companion for any occasion, Oarsman Ale is a beer based in tradition, but with that distinctive Bell’s twist. A perfect beer to compliment any menu. ABV: 4.0%




German-style Gose brewed with sea salt and coriander.  Soured in the kettle then fermented on heaps of red raspberries.  Tart, fruity and endlessly refreshing. ABV: 4.0%




A blend of five different malts gives this brew intense red color and complexity, a medium body with light caramel sweetness and a feint roast finish. ABV: 5.8%

ASTARTE: 6/4C cases | 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

In documented mythology the creation of strawberries is attributed to the ancient Goddess Astarte, more commonly known by her Greek name Aphrodite. Legend says that upon the death of the mortal Adonis that the Goddess wept with such passion that her tears fell to the ground as small red hearts. We started with a traditional Cream Ale, light and crisp with a great mouthfeel… Then we added fresh strawberries to give it an incredible nose, and slight tart finish. With just the right amount of fruit to make it noticeable but not overpowering, this spring/summer seasonal is a perfect offering to the celestial mother of love. ABV: 5.5%



CITRUS IPA: 4/6C cases | 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

A crisp and aromatic West Coast IPA made with a clean malt base that allows the grapefruit, orange and pine flavor of the hops to be showcased in both the aromatics and the taste. In 4 words or less: YOUR. NEW. GO-TO. IPA. ABV: 6.7%



HOP HOG IPA: 4/6 cases

You’re in for a hard charging, yet remarkably drinkable brew in our Hop Hog IPA! Delivering layered hop flavors and a solid malt profile, we doubled down on the dry hopping for even more fresh hop character and refreshing bitterness. Hop Hog IPA is dry-hopped and unfiltered for maximum flavor, which can result in some settling in the bottle. This harmless combination of hop tannins, yeast and malt occurs naturally, and ads to the character of the beer. For a clear pour, simply decant the contents of your bottle into a glass as you would a Belgian or Trappist Ale. ABV: 7.0%



MILK STOUT: 4/6 cases

Milk sugar in your stout is like cream in your coffee. Dark and delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. “Preconceived notions are the blinders on the road to enlightenment.” Udderly delightful. ABV: 6.0%



LUNCH: 12/16 cases | 1/6 kegs

Lunch is a special whale that has been spotted off the Maine coast since 1982. She has what looks like a bite taken out of her fin, which adds to her unique character. We dedicate this beer to her determination and persistence. Keep on swimming! ABV: 7.0%

MEAN OLD TOM: 1/6 kegs

I think it was the summer of ’76, I was 5 years old, and my Uncle Tom came to paint our house. It was in the tiny town of Louisiana, Missouri, on the mighty Mississippi River, where he would take me to troll the roadside ditches to gather one man’s junk (beer cans). In honor of his magnificent treasure (his beer can collection) and his spirit for fast cars, tough motorcycles and mean smiles, we bring you Mean Old Tom. ABV: 6.5%

ANOTHER ONE: 1/6 kegs

When we expanded our brewery in 2013, the stress was something, to say the least. I ran out of creative juice for a minute so I decided to have another one for inspiration. ABV: 7.0%

MO: 12/16 cases

Just after opening our brewery, working long nights, weekends, and still maintaining our day jobs, my brother Daniel (the brewer) had twins. Cheers to his courage and dedication to making better beer. ABV: 6.0%


If Dave’s not in the office, he’s out on a cycling adventure. And he’s almost certainly drinking a beer afterwards. We don’t know why biking and beer go together so well, but they just do. We brewed this session IPA as a refreshing post ride snack with notes and aromas of tropical fruits, citrus, mixed berries, and grassy pine. Cheers to every ride! ABV: 4.9%



CHERRY BERLINERWEISSE: 6/4C cases | 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

This German-style sour wheat ale was conditioned on tart Michigan cherries for a little extra tangy zip. Clocking in at just 3.5% ABV, this is a great summer quencher we can’t wait to get out to the fine folks of New Jersey! ABV: 3.5%



G’KNIGHT: 1/6 kegs

Our ‘Velvet M-80’ is a hefty, dry hopped double-red ipa with a nose full of aroma, a sticky mouthfeel, a malty middle and unctuous hop flavors. G’Knight sports a surprisingly sensuous finish for a beer of its size (8.7% ABV, 60 IBUs). It’s brewed in tribute to a fellow Colorado craft beer pioneer and Vietnam vet who died fighting a 2002 wild fire outside of our Lyons hometown. ABV: 8.7%



10 HOP: 50L kegs

Dedicated to Farmers & Fermenters. In a bold collaboration with Mother Nature, we grow our own varieties of aroma hops at Rogue Farms in Independence, OR. We also string, stake, train, test, trim, separate, sort, kiln and cool them. Brewmaster John Maier meticulously selected and blended 10 varieties of our aroma hops to create this behemoth of an IPA, the pinnacle of the Rogue Hop experience. ABV: 10.10%



FARKING WHEATON W00TSTOUT: 4/6 cases | 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

This barrel-aged palate-saver has been a favorite among our fans—and us—since its inception in 2013. Pecans, wheat, flaked rye and bourbon-soaked barrels provide this whopping, complex superhero version of an imperial stout with a profound complexity that makes it ideal for cellaring—if you can wait that long. Now, we can’t say this beer bestows jedi powers, exactly, but your taste buds may just be fooled into believing as much. A special thanks to Amanda Conner, who illustrated this year’s label to support The Hero Initiative. ABV: 13.0%




The uproar of east coast versus west coast IPA’s can be deafening. This aptly named IPA combines classic West Coast bittering featuring Columbus and Simcoe with East Coast focus on hop flavor. Featuring a large whirlpool of Simcoe, El Dorado and Cascade, and dry hopped with over 15lbs of Simcoe, Citra, El Dorado and Cascade, Hullabaloo features a nose of floral and citrus with flavors of peach, berry and earthiness on the finish. ABV: 7.0%

SS TIDE POOL: 1/6 kegs

Hazy, heavily oated session IPA with a full mouthfeel. Hopped lightly with Hallertau Blanc and Zythos in the kettle and whirlpool, then heavily dry hopped with more of the same plus Vic Secret! Intriguing notes of gooseberry and grass couple with subtle tropical notes to make this an all day crusher that won’t tire the pallet. ABV: 4.3%

TRYFECTA: 1/6 kegs

An ode to our namesake, this summery Saison is brewed with heavy additions of wheat and oats and gently hopped in the kettle and whirlpool with Mosaic and Cascade. We then conditioned this hazy saison on 15lbs/bbl of Hammonton grown Blueberries, Strawberries and Blackberries. The dry finish is balanced by the subtle fruit sweetness for an incredibly refreshing and crushable summer treat! ABV: 5.0%



GRAPEFRUIT: 4/6C cases

Refreshingly tart and dry that grabs a hold of your mouth sides and then releases for a soft finish. Enjoy straight from the can or pour over ice with a squeeze of lime for a uniquely refreshing taste. ABV: 5.0%



TROPICAL BERLINER WEISS: 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

Tart and refreshing, this wheat beer is loaded with real tropical fruit.  The beer was naturally soured then aged with real Mango, Payaya, and Guava puree. ABV: 5.5%
