Lead Brewer Mike Gauthier has been a part of the Midwest craft beer scene for 15 years. He started brewing in Chicago, and worked as an assistant brewer and then head brewer for Court Avenue Brewing in Des Moines. While there, he introduced countless specialty and seasonal beers, many of which were barrel aged, and several new core brands. In 2008, Mr. Gauthier’s beers swept the classic style at the Festival of Barrel Aged Beers in Chicago. Most recently, he has been part of the management team at El Bait Shop.
|A dark amber ale that focuses on the rich, nutty flavors of the malted barley it is made from. Malty and lightly sweet with a smooth, clean finish.||Our Luna Rosa Wit is subtly spiced with coriander and rather than the orange peels traditionally added to Wits, we’ve added a puree of blood oranges, giving this unique beer a pink hue and refreshing citrus character.|
|A light golden ale that starts lightly sweet and has a crisp and dry finish. Medium bodied, so it is satisfying for any palate and is extremely easy to drink.||An amber colored American IPA with the perfect balance between malt and the citrus and floral notes of American hops.|
Loaded with tropical and citrus flavors, Nebulas features Citra and Mosaic hops to create an out of this world, easy-drinking IPA.
|Brewed with an abundance of chocolate malts, this stout gets its robust flavor from deeply roasted barley and a touch of natural cacao nibs.|
