Below are a few of our beers, they might not all be on tap right now, but we try to keep a fresh rotating beer selection with 9-10 beers on tap. Look for ▶︎ to indicate which ones are currently on tap.
Current Beers on Tap
▶︎ Meet Knock Knock. Orange you glad we made this beer? ( insert eye roll here) we took our American style wheat beer and added blood orange juice and orange zest for an extra boost of citrus goodness. Pairs well with good friends and bad jokes. Cheers!
▶︎Meet O.B.D. This is our Belgian Dubbel inspired by the monastic beers of Belgium. Deep amber and full of dark fruit and spice flavors, this beer is one to sip and savor. Three out of three brothers- Larry, Darryl and his other brother Darryl- highly recommend you try this beer. Cheers!
▶︎Meet Bold Strategy!! You know who the heavy hitters are. They are the classic IPAs that rank near the top of every best beer list year in and year out. They are fantastic beers and deserve to be there. Can our IPA go toe to toe with them? As a famous sports commentator once said, “It’s a bold strategy, Cotton. Let’s see if it pays off for ‘em.”
▶︎Meet Cargo Shorts. We are not slaves to fashion. Sure, we enjoy trying the newest hazy IPAs, fruited sours, and barrel aged stouts as much as anyone else. But sometimes a solid pale ale is just what we need. Cargo Shorts is just that: a classic pale ale featuring local Chinook hops from Washtenaw Hops. It may not be the most fashionable beer out there, but it fits just right.
▶︎Meet 7 is the Key. the IPA hybrid with a cool twist. Idaho 7 hops provide light citrus fruit flavors and aromas against a backdrop of firm bitterness and the crisp, clean finish of acool fermentation. 7 elevens, 7 dwarves, 7 little chipmunks. Clearly 7 is The Key. Cheers!
▶︎Meet Gunter our dark lager. At Erratic Ale Co., We aren’t afraid of dark beers. We try to keep plenty of amber ales, amber sours and dark stouts on tap for you. Now we’ve added this Munich style dark lager. Even though it is deeply amber and malty, Gunter remains light and easy to drink. Give Gunter a try and don’t be afraid of the dark. Cheers!!
▶︎Meet C.R.S., our sweet stout fermented with raspberry puree ( not the kind you’d find in a secondhand store) then aged on a blend of Ugandan and Dominican cocoa nibs. It’s a fantastic combination of tart raspberry and deep chocolate that will make you think of your favorite box of chocolate candies. Cheers!
▶︎Meet Simi and the Whale. We took our sweet stout and added a blend of chai tea inspired spices for extra warmth and depth. Reach out your hand and pick up a pint of deep, dark, spicy goodness. Perhaps it will be just the thing to send you on your way. To where? That’s entirely up to you.
▶︎Meet Simi and The Barrel. A little bit of Simi and the Whale was sent on its way into some freshly emptied bourbon barrels. While it was relaxing there for a while, it picked up some fantastic bourbon flavor and aroma to complement its blend of warming chai tea spices. It will definitely send you on your way to your happy place. (in Bombers – Bottle conditioned)
▶︎Meet Patches, our Irish Red Ale. It’s an easy going malty ale with just enough roasted malt edge to keep the finish dry. Maybe you can dodge a wrench, but don’t dodge this beer. Cheers!
▶︎Meet Knocking on Kevin’s Door. I tell people my brother is a bourbon guy. But more than that, he is an all-around great guy. He’s a terrific dad and husband. He’s a loyal friend. Of course, he’s also the best brother one could ever have. So, this Bourbon Barrel Aged Amber Ale was created for him, but it will never be as awesome as he is. Here’s to my brother, Kevin! Cheers! (Bottle conditioned in Bombers only )
▶︎Meet Tall Cool One. You asked for it. Here it is. Tall Cool One is built to please. Weeks of cold conditioning result in crisp malt and hop character that shine bright in this pale lager. Lighten up, baby! Have a Tall Cool One. Cheers!
▶︎Meet Bingo Jed. The wild yeast blend in this saison provides notes of hay citrus to complement the white wine character of Nelson Sauvin hops. The idea for this one came during a long drive on the highway listening to Steve Miller tunes. You know, Bingo Jed had a light on… At least I think that’s how it goes. Cheers!
▶︎Meet Shadows! SHADOWS! ON NITRO Our dry stout. Nothing heavy and sweet here. This one is lean, dry and roasty. Do you know what stout looks like in a black and white picture? Cheers!
▶︎Chasing Rainbows – Semi-dry Red
▶︎Big Dreams – Sweet white w/ Cranberry on Nitro
▶︎Kind Words – Semi-dry Rose
Moving Forward – Semi-dry White
Past Great Beers (look for them to come back around)
Meet Serious Black. When the winter days get short and the nights get long, we drink our dark beers and dream about the days when the sun will shine again. Serious Black comes to the rescue. Roasted wheat malt makes this Dark Saison look like a stout but it still drinks crisp, fruity and spicy like the golden beers it’s based on. Yes, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, thanks to Serious Black. Cheers!
Meet Good For The Soul. This is our juicy IPA. We dry hop this one with three different varieties to provide plenty of juicy citrus flavor. Grapefruit. Juicy fruit. It’s good for the soul. Cheers!
Meet Lost in Translation. This is our Blonde Ale finished with Cashmere hops. Crisp and refreshing, it’s perfect for those days when the sun beats down upon your face or those nights when stars fill your dreams. Subtle citrus and tropical fruit notes from the hops make this a beer that anyone can understand. Cheers!
Meet Brother Magnus, the big brother of our dubbel. Brother Magnus, a Belgian Tripel, is pale in color but full of flavor and aroma from the Belgian yeast and a touch of honey added to the boil. No need to take a vow of silence. In fact, we hope you like it enough to tell everyone to try it. Cheers!
Meet Eleven ,our Scottish Ale. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, nobody understands what you’re saying. You say it over and over again. You say it a thousand different ways. You repeat it until you’re blue in the face, but they still don’t get it! Frustrating! What you need is Eleven – rich amber malty goodness. We understand you. Cheers!
Meet Murdered by Pirates. Tropical hibiscus gives it a rosy hue, Indian coriander lends subtle spice and a touch of sea salt rounds out the tart finish of this sour ale. Just ask any of us what’s good here. We’ll tell you, “Murdered by Pirates is good!” Cheers!
Meet SLAP Jack Meet Slap Jack. Just for kicks, we let some of our pumpkin spiced ale age in bourbon barrels. Slap Jack has the subtle spice and warmth you love from Just Jack with added depth from time in the barrel. When you see Slap Jack, grab it quick. It won’t be around for long. Cheers!
Meet Hints and Allegations. This amber ale is full of caramel malt richness with just enough Cascade and Willamette hops to keep it balanced. If you had a rough day full of incidents and accidents this is just the beer to help get you through. You can think of it as your personal bodyguard and long-lost pal. Cheers!
Meet Just Jack our Pumpkin Spiced Ale. Just Jack, features subtle warmth and depth from additions of pumpkin, whole vanilla beans and pumpkin pic spices. He is destined to be the star of any autumnal beer flight. He’s Just Jack! Cheers!
Meet Mocktoberfest. This autumn treat has generous amounts of the Munich and Vienna malts that you’d find in a traditional festbier, but then we………Ok, we’re busted! We didn’t get an early enough start to do this one as a lager, so we did it as an ale. It’s still full of malty goodness and warm toasty flavors for fall, though. Cheers!
Meet Sordid Details. This is our take on an American style Saison. The Belgian yeast gives it a fantastic balance of fruit and spice with just enough finishing hops to carry that fruit through the finish. Which hops? That’s our dirty little secret. Cheers!
Meet Jammy Time. One of my favorite summertime foods as a kid was my mother’s fresh strawberry jam. It was perfect for any time of day. It was great on toast or waffles for breakfast in a PB and J for lunch or on vanilla ice cream in the evening before bed… Just before Jammy Time, of course. Let this Berliner Weisse with strawberries be your grown-up version of a Jammy Time treat. Cheers!
Meet Thorn in My Side: What could be better than a nice sour ale with tart raspberry and blackberry goodness? I love the way these quick sour beers taste. I just wish they weren’t such a pain in the butt to brew. Two brew days, a couple of days babysitting in between, and something always seems to spill! I’ll keep making them, though because I love the results. I hope you do, too. Cheers!
Meet You Better Brett! We took our pale ale, finished it with Mosaic hops, and fermented it with Brettanomyces yeast. The result is s fun combination of tropical fruit aroma and subtle, rustic earthiness. Is this your typical Pale Ale? nNo, it certainly isn’t. Is this the next one you should try? You Better Brett it is!
Meet ⭕️ △❌, our American wheat beer and perhaps the best problem solver ever. If you have an important decision to make you can never go wrong if you start with a matrix and ⭕️△❌. Should I take that trip? ⭕️△❌ it! Should I switch jobs? ⭕️△❌ it! Should I marry that special someone? Well, that’s up to you, but ⭕️△❌, will be there for you while you figure that one out. Cheers! ( for my friends at Toyota)
Meet C.Y.A., a Choose Your Adventure Sour Ale. This is our modern spin on a traditional Berliner Weisse. Traditionally, it was often served with raspberry or woodruff syrup, but feel free to try it with any of our other syrups to create your own masterpiece. Strawberry? Mango? Peach? You do you! Or just have a pint of it plain. It’s a tart and refreshing patio pleaser just as it is. Cheers!
Meet Fruit Better Brett. Just in time for spring, our Brett Pale Ale took a trip through the orchard and came back with the sunny flavor and aroma of apricots. The combination highlights the tropical fruit flavors of the original while giving its earthy funkiness a lift. Grab your shades, lift your glass and hum “Here Comes the Sun.” Cheers!
Meet Jhonnu. No, not Johnny, Jhonnu. Really! Jhonnu is our pale ale finished with Citra hops. Nice and crisp with citrus aromas. Great for a hot summer day. Cheers!
Meet Mr. Jones. This quick sour amber ale starts with refreshing tartness balancing deep malt. Then we ferment it with a blend of saison yeast and brett yeast to make it just a little more funky. When you have Mr. Jones in your glass, you might be just as happy as you can be. Cheers!
Meet Slow Foamy Killer. When the weather heats up and OBD and Brother Magnus go on vacation up north, Slow Foamy Killer is here to pick up the slack. We use our favorite abbey style yeast with rich malts and spicy hops to make this take on a Belgian Style Pale Ale. Session strength but still full of flavor, it’s great for warm summer nights on the patio. Cheers!
Meet You Are the Brute Squad, our Brut IPA. Extra dry and crisp with plenty of hop character, You Are the Brute Squad is the perfect beer when you’re storming the castle or when you have your wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it. So, everybody MOVE! & have a You Are the Brute Squad. Cheers!
