Montana Light Kolsch

Our German-Style Light Ale is a perfect summer beer. This beer is brewed at low fermentation temperatures with ale yeast, to create an ale that is similar to a lager in flavor and aroma. The mellow malt profile and low bitterness defines this bright, clean, and refreshing beer. Lemongrass and Acidulated malt creates a slight tang, and the ale yeast provides esters that are reminiscent of pear. Malt: 2-Row Pale, Pilsen, Carapils, and Acidulated. Hops: German Tettnag and Czech Saaz.

Flathead Premium Lager

Premium Lager is the standard for American beer, made famous by the larger US breweries.

Lemongrass Gose

This is an old German-style brewed by the river Gose in Goslar, Germany. The saline water created a very salty beer which in those days, was all a bit sour. This tart and light quencher is made with the help of fresh lemongrass, lemon zest, and a pinch of salt. Brewed with otherwise traditional ingredients and new age methods, you are going to want another. Malts: 2-Row Pale, Pilsen, Wheat, and Rice Hulls. Hops: Perle, Tettnang, and Czech Sazz.
