MAFKA Barrel Aged Sour- 5% ABV- Inoculated barrel staves were pitched into a vat of specially blended beer (58% Khatta Kala Sour Stout, 36% Hothaus Harvest Ale, 6% Velvet Hammer) and left to age for 18 months. The results proved to be wildly successful (pun intended!). The scent of rich, black cherries on the nose carries through to a delicate mouth-feel on the palette, and a mild, sweet-tart finish with newly unleashed oak tannins.

Hop Mouth– 8% ABV- This remarkably balanced brew has a deep amber hue with a generous white head. Hopmouth showcases a rich, toasty flavor and sweet caramel notes because of the high-quality Maris Otter malt used. The hops are up front in the aroma, reminiscent of citrus and pine, while the resin-like flavors linger well after the last sip.
London Porter– 7% ABV- Travel to a time of brewer’s lore, when smoke was spelled “smoake,” when dark beers held the collective hearts and minds of the people of merry old England. Believe it or not, back in the 1850s, Porter ruled the beer world, and no one brewed Porter like the brewers of London. Drawing their water from the Thames, blending old and new batches, and experimenting with new types of malt, Porter evolved throughout the years, and probably at one time held some substantial smoakiness. Arcadia’s London Porter draws on this rich historic tradition, but adds a few special twists to make it all our own. The flavor of London Porter is multi-layered, starting with a bold, pleasing sweetened coffee richness, which gives way to round and subtle smoke, much like a delicately smoked ham. Porcine sweetness is capped by a gloss of fig jam or cherry compote, fruity and complex. Faint pear and hay notes barely poke through, reminders that there are some delightful American Glacier hops under all the finery.
Battle Kriek– 8% ABV- Battle Kriek is a blend of a light Golden Sour Ale, a kettle soured Cherry Ale, a batch of our Apollyon Belgian Golden Strong, and a Golden Saison. All of these beers were aged in oak barrels for 8-18 months. Arcadia’s Brewers tasted every barrel project in the house to come up with a blend of 36 unique oak barrels from these 4 varied batches of beer. The combined flavor profiles of wood and light biscuit, tropical and citrus fruits, and a classic farmhouse funk were mixed with 1,200 pounds of Michigan cherries! Pinkish ruby in color with a slight haze and light pink foamy head, this American Wild Ale/Wild Specialty Beer comes in at 7.4%. Aromas of cherry pie, citrus zest, peaches, and pastoral settings mirror the flavors of tart cherry pie, acidity from wild fermented sour cherry champagne as well as tropical and citrus fruits. A very dry and slightly tannic, thin mouthfeel balances with bright fruit and citrus acidity.

Sculpin IPA– 7% ABV- A trophy beer that’s a testament to our homebrew roots. Our Sculpin IPA is a great example of what got us into brewing in the first place. After years of experimenting, we knew hopping an ale at five separate stages would produce something special. The result ended up being this gold-medal winning IPA, whose inspired use of hops creates hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon flavors, but still packs a bit of a sting, just like a Sculpin fish.
Mango Even Keel– 3.8% ABV- The perfect balance of fruit and hops. Our Mango Even Keel is the ideal beer for easy drinking. This hoppy, session ale gets a flavor boost from mango, which perfectly plays off the citrusy hop bouquet. With fruit, hops, and a low ABV, this beer truly is on another level.
Peppermint Victory at Sea– 10% ABV- A winning combo of coffee, vanilla & mint. This Peppermint Victory at Sea is a festive take on our popular Imperial Porter.

The trio of flavors play perfectly on your palate – the brew’s sweet roasting balances nicely with a cool, minty finish.
Cinnamon Raisin Commodore – 6.5% ABV- A stout with some spice. Our Cinnamon Raisin Commodore is truly a story of experimentation.

Liz was floored and we think you will be too.
