 Our Full Beer List

KING OF THE RAFT

Juicy IPA

5.8% ABV - 40 IBU

Throw out your previously held beliefs about IPAs.  This hazy style originated in New England and has very little hops bitterness.  The heavy late additions of Citra and Mandarina hops make this citrusy and juicy without the bitterness that comes from earlier hop additions. 

THE HERBERT

Grapefruit Shandy

5.3% ABV - 50 IBU

 

Our Six O'clock Whistle mixed with a splash of tart and tangy grapefruit juice.  The hops and citrus from the juice balance nicely to make a delicious shandy with restrained bitterness.

PRIMOS

Mexican-Style Lager 

4.2% ABV - 22 IBU

This light beer begins with a Pilsner, Munich and Vienna malt base.  The signature taste comes from the yeast, which originated in Mexico City.  This beer has a crisp finish that comes from several weeks of ice-cold lagering.

HEFE’ DUSCHENE

Hefeweizen

 4.6% ABV - 10 IBU

This light bodied yet hazy German wheat beer features notes of banana and clove. The hefeweizen yeast takes center stage on this ale, with the wheat malt, Liberty and Hallertauer hops providing background support.

CROOKED LAKE CREAM

Cream Ale

4.7% ABV - 18 IBU

A beer for the masses! Brewed for established craftbeer drinkers and those just starting to test the waters. 2-row, Crystal 10L, and flaked corn make this a light-bodied ale with subdued notes of noble hops. An ale/lager yeast blend gives this beer a nose reminiscent of your favorite light lager.

SIX O’CLOCK WHISTLE

Michigan IPA

6.6% ABV - 75 IBU

Raise your glasses in the air when the six o’clock whistle blows. This IPA is made with grains grown on small Michigan farms and malted at Pilot Malt House in Byron Center, MI, and hops grown in Michigan by Hop Head Farms.

LEMONY CRICKET

Lemon Shandy

4.1% ABV - 10 IBU

Our Crooked Lake Cream Ale mixed with a splash of zesty sparkling lemon juice. A baby step into the world of craft beer and probably one of the most refreshing drinks you’ve ever had.

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FARMHOUSE ALE

Saison 

5.8% ABV - 24 IBU

Our take on the traditional farmhouse ale originating from Wallonia, the French speaking southern half of Belgium. This Belgian yeast-forward beer finishes dry and refreshing. 

RESCUE 21

American Red Ale 

5.3% ABV - 32 IBU

This red ale has a nice balance between the citrus hop and roasted malt flavors. Named after the Sister Lakes Volunteer Fire Department’s newest engine and partial proceeds go to benefit the great work they do for our community.

BAREFOOTIN’

Berliner Weisse

3.8% ABV - 3 IBU

This kettle-soured wheat beer is a good way to dip your toe into the world of sour beers. Silver medal winner in the 2017 Denver International Beer Competition. 

DAY STARTER

Coffee Brown Ale

6% ABV - 35 IBU

Get your morning on the lake started right. Organic, fair trade Nicaraguan coffee beans roasted in Grand Rapids by Ferris Coffee are steeped in the boil kettle, giving this American brown ale a pleasant coffee aroma and flavor.

MAGICIAN'S MAGIC MILK

Chocolate Milk Stout

4.2% ABV - 43 IBU

A sweet stout brewed with chocolate malt and lactose sugar, finished with cacao nibs during secondary fermentation.  This beer drinks more like a dessert, but don’t let that stop you from enjoying it any time of the day. #treatyourself

DONKEY’S FIRST BATCH

Altbier

5% ABV - 41 IBU

The beer that started it all! This German style amber ale is a tribute to our very first batch of homebrew, brewed in 2010 with our Siberian Husky brewdog lovingly, referred to as “Donkey.” RIP Donkey

DEWEY LAKE MONSTER

Double IPA

9.8% ABV - 115 IBU

Watch out for this hoppy monster of a beer.  Local legend has it, imbibing in a few of these may result in a big foot sighting. Bronze medal winner in the 2017 Denver International Beer Competition.

PONTOON RIDE

English Pale Ale

8.1% ABV - 60 IBU

This lightly hopped and refreshing pale ale packs a surprising punch and pairs well with sunny day boat rides.   

THE BROWN WITHOUT A NAME

American Brown Ale

5.3% ABV - 30 IBU

This roasty American Brown Ale balances a low hop aroma with a medium hop bitterness. It is sure to leave you satisfied yet wanting more.

BECKWITH PORTER

Brown Porter 

4.5% ABV - 25 IBU

This full-bodied porter is dark and roasty. Named after the founder of the Round Oak Stove Company and former mayor of Dowagiac.

TWO-TONED MULTI-BEAST 

Belgian IPA

8.4% ABV - 75 IBU

According to the tale, a Two-toned Multi-beast is an enormous, shaggy horse-like creature covered from head to tail with alternating blotches of brown and white. This is none of that, but it is still a delicious American take on a Belgian IPA.

 Our Cider & Wine List 

 

ORCHARD PARTY - Hard Apple Cider

Made from a proprietary blend of four Michigan apples.  It is crisp and semi-dry, done in a traditional American style and very refreshing.

PINOT GRIGIO - Dry White Wine

A clean crisp dry white wine made in the classic Italian style.  Fermented in  stainless steel, the delicate fruit characters derived solely from the ripe berries are enhanced allowing apple and peach flavors to become forward on the palette.

A fresh semi-dry German style white wine bursting with floral and apple fruit character that is sure to delight the senses.

CAPRICCIO - Dry Red Wine

This big, soft red wine shows the right balance between fruitiness and dryness. A big jammy berry fruit flavor with a subtle backbone of tannin.

RUBY RED - Semi-Dry Red Wine

Light, fresh and fruity red wine with a hint of sweetness.
