SAISONS & SOURS
Highly carbonated, fruit, spicy and often bottle conditioned, the Saison is a pale ale that includes several varieties. Generally classified as a farmhouse ale, named after the ancient European farming tradition where they brewed beer from their own grain.
Hailing from the famous Monk’s Cafe in Philadelphia, its light tartness gives way to a nice cotton-candy, creamy body and a sweet finish. A nice compliment to any of our desserts or appetizers!
Produced on a working farm in Belgium, this is a truly rustic country beer that keeps alive the tradition of honest, artisanal brewing. Bursting with earthy, spicy and delicate fruity flavors, this beer fits the classic Saison profile to a tee.
A Belgian Quad that offers notes of caramel and delectable dry chocolate. Additionally, this nitro can pour tastes a roasted coffee flavor, hence its “barista” name. Once Kasteel was a prominent force in the Belgian beer market, but it was pulled for rebranding and has since been reintroduced in nitro cans. Pair this with our goulash dinner!
A Belgian fruit beer, but this is not to be mistaken as a lambic. This brew is a sour Flanders Oud Bruin. The fresh raspberries are matured in each barrel to give a fruit punch taste. Try pairing this dish with our beet salad. The creamy cambozola’s blue bitter taste provides a bigger punch with the tart raspberry drink.
Blonde Ales, also known as Golden Ales, is a medium ale that has moderate bitterness and maltiness. A “Tripel” is made with 3x the malt and has a higher ABV.
This unfiltered, blond beer is pleasantly fruity, spiced with coriander and has a mild taste of hops. An easy drinking beer, it embodies ‘the sun in a glass’ with its splendidly intense golden-yellow colour, and creamy collar of froth and herbal/citrus aromas.
A pale abbey beer, with a full, sunny, golden colour. It has a smooth and full bodied taste and a rich creamy head. Like all the Leffe beers, it is a ’connoisseur’ beer that is always easy to drink.
A traditional Belgian abbey beer with a deep brown color and a full, sweet and fruity aroma, it’s best paired with chocolate and beef and also goes great with buttery style cheeses. We recommend pairing with our house-made Charcuterie Board.
First brewed in 1966 by Rev. Father Theodore, it was his final contribution to the Chimay line of beers. With a typical golden color, a slightly hazy appearance topped with a fine foam that releases a bouquet of fruity esters and floral-hop aromas, this is an ideal patio-drinking beer.
First launched in 1948 as a Christmas ale under the name “Blue Cap”, its reputation as a strong ale of the highest quality led to its year-round production. It’s remarkably dry with a hint of sweetness that’s derived from the highest quality of malts. Flavors of dates, fig and pear are complemented by aromas of bread with a faint floral finish.
The oldest of the Chimay beers, it’s a timeless classic and sweet harmony in a glass. Its mildly floral notes mix perfectly with a spicy pepper and clove. The sweet, dark fruity finish features a touch of chocolate and caramel.
Brewed 25 years after the premier of the Gulden Draak, one of the most successful beers in the U.S., the Guldren Draak 9000 is an exceptional beer with a complex taste sensation. Featuring 3 varieties of malt, it has a deep rich amber color with a smooth and malty-sweet taste and wonderfully accomplished finishing bouquet.
ENGLISH STOUTS, ENGLISH CIDERS & OTHER WORLD BEER
A dark, top-fermented beer, Stouts have a number of variations including dry stout, oatmeal stout, milk stout and imperial stout. Dating back to 1677 it’s noted as not just a strong beer but a dark beer. Ciders are sweeter brews, fermented from apples and have no malt or hops.
A lightly sparkling, elegant dry cider with a soft fragrant nose and earthy apple notes that captures the essence of an orchard. Best paired with pork, chili or cheesy dishes, like our Schnitzel or Kassler Rippchen!
A refreshing blush-colored cider that features a subtle blackberry aroma with a hint of traditional cider apple. It has a smooth, silky and refreshing palate that beautifully balances sweetness and acidity.
Still brewed with water from a Well that was first sunk over 250 years ago in the Yorkshire countryside, this Nut Brown Ale is a rich tipple with roasted accents, infused with hints of pecan and toffee. A wonderfully drinkable, exceptionally tasty brew, the Nut Brown Ale is also Vegan-friendly and suitable for any occasion!
Another Vegan-friendly option from Samuel Smith and similarly brewed, its fermentation creates an almost opaque, wonderfully silky and smooth textured ale with a complex medium dry palate and bittersweet finish.
More than 100 years after founder J.C. Jacobsen mastered the art of Pilsner brewing, the perfectly balanced Danish Pilsner is a wonderfully crisp and refreshing brew with a full flavor and a distinctive, hoppy aroma.
AMERICAN CRAFT (Ciders, Wheats, Stouts)
Brewed with 100% Centennial hops from the Pacific Northwest and named after the Two Hearted River in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, this IPA is bursting with hop aromas ranging from pine to grapefruit, this beer is remarkably drinkable and well suited for any Happy Hour.
A deep, dark Imperial Stout, The Abyss features hints of molasses, licorice and other alluring flavors that make it something not just to quaff, but contemplate.
Handcrafted in Holland, Michigan. This delicious brew contains 11% ABV and features roasted malt that offers coffee and chocolate flavors. Brewing experts age this New Holland Dragon’s Milk beer in bourbon barrels for three months, giving it sweet undertones of vanilla and oak.
During periods of fasting without solid foods, Monastic brewers relied on the Double Bock to fulfill their basic nutritional needs. This Double Bock has an intense malt aroma and thick, chewy body that provides warmth and nourishment all throughout the year, and a crowd favorite on our extensive beer list!
Brewed as an homage to the bees, which are imperative for pollinating the new blossoms on fruit trees in the spring, this brew features fresh apple and honeysuckle aroma that finishes crisp with just a hint of sweetness from the local honey. A perfect brew for any Cleveland spring or summer day.
