Creston, a wildly cool new brewery out of Grand Rapids, MI will be with us on Friday, November 10 for a night of drinks and merriment.

Here’s what’s coming on tap:

Fox Deluxe 7.4% ABV
Our house IPA is a tribute to the hugely flavorful hops grown in MI: Nugget hops from Michigan Hop Alliance in Omena impart a sharp bitterness while Centennial hops from Hopyards of Kent in Greenville provide a unique character of lemon balm, as well as floral and citrus characteristics typically found in Centennial hops. A multigrain base of malts provide a strong but soft background for the hops to steal the show.

The Bloody Fifth 6.9% ABV
This multigrain red IPA is consistently one of our best sellers. Big flavors and aromas of dank and sweet cannabis come from MI grown Summit, Chinook, and Nugget hops from our friends at Michigan Hop Alliance in Omena, while a medium-body of specialty crystal malts and grains provide a fruity, strawberry-like flavor in the malt backbone.

Busy, busy, busy.
Our newest, ‘juiciest’ IPA is almost exclusively hopped with flavor and aroma hop additions at the end of the boil, as well as a massive dry-hop during fermentation. We leave this one unfiltered and unfettered so that the hop essential oils emanating from PNW Mosaic and Citra hops trick your brain into thinking you’re drinking straight hop juice – if there ever was such a thing. A multigrain malt base leaves plenty of complexity to complement the depth of hop flavors.

BA Lambier 13% ABV
This hefty, complex, multigrain Belgian Golden Strong has been aged for 1 year in a Jefferson’s bourbon barrel leading to a dangerously drinkable specialty brew. It’s dry, bready, and floral from a MI Crystal dry hop and its ABV is nowhere near apparent as strong as it actually is. The bourbon and barrel notes come through with an intensity of honey, vanilla, and oak tannin. The Belgian characteristics from the yeast impart pear and bubblegum subtleties, leading to a depth of character unlike anything else in our lineup.
