The Hotel Porter - American Porter

6.8% ABV 35 IBU

Inspired by the historic Huron Hotel that the Alehouse calls home, our Hotel Porter is a hearty blend of dark malts which yield moderate caramel notes with a bold, roasty character. Much like a Hotel Porter, this beer is always ready to serve and has a strong hop backbone.

MacKnauf’s 80 Shilling Ale: Scottish Expo Ale

5.8% ABV 15 IBU

This is a reprise of our first Brewer Showcase brew with Jim Satin’s gold medal winning 80-shilling export ale. MacKnauf’s 80 Shilling Scottish Ale is a classic with notes of layered biscuit and caramel. Old-world hops provide a slight hint of bitter earthiness making for a wee pint you’ll order again and again.

November Open Mic

Join us on Wednesday, November 28th for Open Mic Night. In person sign-ups begin at 6:45 p.m. and the music starts at 7 p.m. Each musician has the time to play 2 songs, or 10 minutes, whichever is less.
