Malt: German Pilsner
Hops: German Hops
Our lightest beer both in color and ABV%, we made this beer to satisfy the thirst of those who might be new to full flavored beer as a step to the rest of our beer lineup. Blond in color, crisp in body and finish, the flavor is mild malt character and a nice hop presence throughout. Very light in mouth feel and a brisk carbonation. A great beer for grilled and spicy foods!

Base Camp Golden Ale

Base Camp Golden Ale18 IBU / 4.9 % ABV
Malt: Rahr 2row, Rahr Red Wheat
Hops: Liberty, German Perle
The lightest of FiftyFifty’s ales, Base Camp is a thirst quenching delight. Pale straw to light gold in color, this beer has a mild malt flavor combined with light bitterness and hop flavor. This beer finishes dry and is very light and refreshing on the palate. Base Camp is a “session beer”, meaning you can easily toss back a few in one sitting. So go ahead, pull up a chair and camp out for a while.

Spring Fever

Spring Fever is brewed with lemongrass, orange peel and honey. Super refreshing and smooth.

Manifesto Pale Ale 32 IBU / 5.4 % ABV
Malt: Rahr 2row, Rahr Red Wheat, Simpsons Golden Promise, Gambrinus Honey Malt, Simpsons 30-37
Hops: Centennial, Summit
We at FiftyFifty believe that beer is good. Especially this beer. Manifesto is one of FiftyFifty’s flagship beers. This beer is a delight for those who take pleasure in craft beers and are looking for something that they can enjoy a few pints of. Manifesto has a restrained malt backbone of flavor with mild biscuit and caramel notes, and the hop character is light to moderate with mild earthiness evolving to a slightly more moderate citrus/piney finish. This is a beer of principle.

California Pale Ale

Brewmaster's Special45 IBU / 5.4 % ABV
CAPA is a strong hopped pale ale. Brewed with Citra and Eldorado Hops which creates an amazing grapefruit and citrus aroma. This is a great beer for those who want hops without too much bitterness.

Hops: Amarillo, Centennial, CTZ and Summit
If being in one of the coldest places in the US isn’t extreme enough, the contents of this beer may very well redefine your commitment to the pursuit of hops. Rockslide IPA is brewed in the ‘West Coast’ style with aggressive amounts of American hops such as Amarillo, Centennial and Summit hops. You are greeted with a full frontal assault of citrus/grapefruit/pine hop character, followed up with malt to balance the mouth feel. This beer is all about hops.

Eclipse Barrel Aged Imperial Stout

Eclipse LogoOne of the most epic beer tasting experiences you will ever have; this is what you get when you take our Totality Imperial Stout and age it in oak bourbon barrels. That extra step adds a plethora of flavors to the already rich Imperial Stout. At first taste there is a large presence of dark chocolate, espresso and warmth from the alcohol of the beer. Oak barrel character then comes into play with hints of vanilla and coconut, followed by mild bitterness from the hops, and then a nice long lingering finish with hints of tobacco, dark dried fruit and more chocolate. Eclipse is a wonderful companion with dessert. A beer meant for contemplation best enjoyed in a snifter and with a friend. Brewed in small 300 gallons batches, our brewers lovingly craft this masterpiece once a year.

An American Hefeweizen brewed with orange peel and 4 types of wheat. Flaked wheat, malted red wheat, unmalted red wheat and unmalted white wheat. Mildly hopped with Calypso. A perfect summertime sessionable beer.

Malt: Rahr 2row, Rahr Red Wheat, Weyermann Pilsner
Adjuncts: Flaked Oats, Unmalted Wheat, Orange Peel, Lemon Peel, Chamomile, Rose Hips, Coriander
Hops: Mt. Hood, German Hallertau Mittelfruh
FiftyFifty’s “Wit” beer, Foggy Goggle is a Belgian Style Wheat Beer, cousin of the German Hefeweizen. An unfiltered beer, Foggy Goggle is brewed true to style, using a yeast strain that originated in Belgium, with just a hint of orange peel, lemon peel, and chamomile. The appearance is an opaque yellow with a wonderfully fluffy head. The predominant aroma is citrus with a hint of coriander, and a unique spicy note. With citrus playing a big part of the flavor, Foggy Goggle is a very refreshing choice.

Brewmaster's Special15 IBU / 4.2 % ABV
Malt: Rahr 2row, Simpsons Golden Promise, Flaked Wheat
Hops: German Tettnang, German Hersbrucker, and German Hallertau Mittelfruh

Trifecta Belgian Style Tripel

Trifecta Logo 23 IBU / 11.0 % ABV
Malt: Rahr 2row, Rahr Red Wheat, Weyermann Pilsner
Adjuncts: Flaked Wheat, Honey, Dextrose
Hops: Mt. Hood, German Perle
This is one of FiftyFifty’s seasonal ales, and is a high alcohol Belgian style beer. Brewed with inspiration from Belgian Trappist Ales, Trifecta also includes locally grown honey. With a complex spiciness tempered by the sweeter notes from the honey, flavors of spicy sage, alcohol, and mild malt sweetness are apparent, and sage and clove like aromas predominate. Coming in at around 11% ABV, this beer is deceptively strong.

Farmhouse Ale

Brewmaster's Special 28 IBU / 5.8 % ABV
Malt: German Pilsner Malt (Best Malz and Global), Spelt, White and Red Wheat
Adjuncts: Flaked Rye
Hops: German Tettang, Sonnett
Our Farmhouse Ale is a Saison brewed in the tradition of Wallonian Beer, with no spices and a low finishing gravity. Originating in the farms of Wallonia, and intended as a ‘restorative’ for farm hands and coal miners, the focus is on yeast derived flavors and a distinctly ‘Belgian’ profile. Definitely not a Wit or Wheat beer; it is dry, with slight acidity, and definitely thirst quenching.

Evil On Jack

Brewmaster's SpecialWe took our diabolically pleasing Concentrated Evil Belgian Dark Strong Ale, and aged it in Jack Daniels Barrels for seven months to come up with this delectable brew. The result is quite spectacular, with hints of raisin, rum, brown sugar and dark fruit, and oaked bourbon like finish.

Blonde Barleywine

Brewmaster's Special 85 IBU / 11 % ABV
Malt: Simpsons Golden Promise, Rahr 2 Row, Gambrinus Dark Munich, Simpsons 10-15, Rahr Red Wheat Malt
Hops: El Dorado, Amarillo, Centennial, CTZ
Everything you expect from a Barleywine without the color. Strong malt backbone with a bracing amount of American Hop character. A sipper for sure but check it out if you have a hankering for hops!

Rouge Baril Baltique

Brewmaster's Special 35 IBU / 6.8 % ABV
Malt: Global Pilsner, Castle Pilsner, Global Dark Munich, Gambrinus Honey Malt, Castle De Bittered Black, Simpsons Chocolate Malt, Simpsons Roasted Barley, Simpsons Crystal Malt (30-37, 50-60, 155-165)
Hops: German Perle and Mt. Hood
Fermented with lager yeast and lagered eight weeks, and then aged in French Oak barrels that had 3 turns of Cabernet Sauvignon. At four months we added 3 French Oak heavy toast ‘spirals’ that had soaked in Cabernet Sauvignon to really give it some extra character. We then aged it for another four months. An interesting fusion of beer and wine, complex and layered with the underlying wine character appearing in the finish. Delicious!

Honey Rye (Roggen Schatz)

Brewmaster's Special 28 IBU / 5.8 % ABV
Malt: Crisp Marris Otter Pale, Simpsons Golden Promise, Gambrinus Dark Munich, Simpsons 30-37, GWM Rye Malt, Flaked Rye
Hops: Calypso, Cascade
The return of an old favorite. Amber colored with a hint of honey sweetness and a touch of Rye spiciness, this beer has an easy drinking character which always lends itself to a second round. The flavor is a moderate malt character with Rye Flakes and Rye malt combining to give a unique spiciness that gives the beer a unique ability to pair with spicier foods and is also a great palette cleanser…so each bit of food is a renewed experience. Intended as a perfect complement to Mexican food, all spicy foods or as a treat after work.

Barrel Aged Really Tasty

Brewmaster's Special 60 IBU / 10.0 % ABV
This is a rare one-off beer blended on the brewers whim. The most recent iteration contains a delicious blend of Totality Imperial Stout, Donner Party Porter, and our Summit Barleywine, aged in Oak Bourbon Barrels for 180 days.

“Red is the New Black” IPA

Malt: Rahr 2row, Wheat Malt, Simpsons Golden Promise, Gambrinus Munich 10, Gambrinus Munich 30-35, Weyermann Melanoidin, Simpsons 75-85 Crystal, Castle Special B
Hops: Simcoe, Centennial
A foray into the alternative darker styles of IPA, this seriously tasty brew has a delicious malt backbone to nicely balance the copious amount of hops. Never to be conformists, we use some tasty red caramel malts instead of following the trend towards darker roasted malts, which gives this beer its own unique flavor profile.

Highland Session Scotch Ale

Brewmaster's Special 10 IBU / 4.8 % ABV
Malt forward and brewed with Scottish ale yeast makes this beer a great choice for a less bitter and low alcohol beer for smooth drinking.

Landslide Double IPA

Malt: Rahr 2row, Simpsons Golden Promise, Crisp Marris Otter, Simpsons 10-15, Rahr Red Wheat

RyePA is a “West Coast” style IPA brewed with Rye Malt, a great beer if you are a hophead. This beer is brewed with 20% Rye Malt and 5% Flaked Rye, creating a big malty beer with a spice note and strong mouth feel. The hops provide a full frontal assault of citrus, balancing quite well with the malt character.

Malt: Rahr 2row, Rahr Red Wheat, Weyermann Pilsner
Adjuncts: Flaked Wheat, Honey, Dextrose
Hops: Mt. Hood, German Perle
We took Trifecta, our Belgian-style triple, and aged it in Elijah Craig 12yr bourbon barrels for 6 months. The complex spiciness and mild malt sweetness matured and became more rich as it aged, and the finished product can only be described as delicious.
