Castle Cream Ale
Gale Force Wheat
A new take on a classic style. This beer has that great hefe weizen banana-clove flavor with 77 IBU's worth of hop additions. Needless to say, this isn't your father’s wheat beer. 2013 version has an addition of freshly grated orange zest. 6% ABV, available May
Nestor Grade Amber Ale
An early fall favorite to help usher in cooler nights and autumn leaves. strong malt aromas with berry-nut and raisin-like flavor, accompanied with three different hop varieties to balance all the malty goodness.
7.0% ABV – 41 IBUs, available September
George Hunter Stout
An Irish classic brewed in memory of my Great-Great Grandfather George Hunter. He was an Irish immigrant and brewer at one of the first Minnesota breweries in Tower. 8% ABV, available November
Gentleman George Hunter
Camp Depression Lager
Crisp, slightly sweet, with a traceable hop finish. Camp Depression was an old logging camp north of Gooseberry Falls State Park. For those who stayed, the top bunk meant warm and comfortable, and the bottom bunk meant a long cold night. Since lagers are bottom and cold fermented, I thought this a suitable name. An original Castle Danger brew, taking a year off of production for Nordic.
Double Crossing IPA
Our 2 year Anniversary beer! We put an amazing amount of hops into this beer (4lbs per BBL), it has a lot of tropical fruit and citrus going on, and clocks in at 9.1% ABV. It is highly drinkable and balanced despite crazy amounts of hops plus being the biggest beer we have brewed to date.
Wimpy is a light golden lager with excellent drinkability that is perfect for any occasion. 4.5% ABV
