Our Beer

Flagship Beers

Cant Hook Kölsch

ABV: 4.9% IBU: NA
This is a German-style ale originally from Köln (Cologne). It is clean, crisp, refreshing and slightly sweet and fruity. The Cant Hook was a very important loggers tool traced back to the early 1800’s. It was used to roll logs into proper positions for loading or sawing. One try and you’ll be hooked!

Boom Decker Becker IPA

ABV: 6.8% IBU: 50
Legend has it that Boom Decker Becker continues to haunt Merrill’s school forest as he has for over 100 years. However, our IPA is nothing to be afraid of. It is crisp, refreshing and well balanced. Much like this historic ghoulish figure, people will tell the story of our IPA for years to come.

Rip Saw-Irish Ale

ABV: 5.8% IBU: NA
A rip saw is a tool that is specifically designed to make a cut parallel to the direction of the wood grain. Our Irish Ale is reddish-brown in color, with sweet maltiness and minimal bitterness.

River Hog Oatmeal Stout

ABV: 5.5% IBU: 43
A River Hog was a man who rode on logs floating down the river heading to a sawmill. He was responsible for risking his life by dislodging possible log jams. These men were bold, strong, and courageous. The first two words fit in perfectly with our Oatmeal Stout. The third is how you’ll feel after having a few pints.

Logger Lager

ABV: 5% IBU: NA

We set out to create a beer that a lumberjack would approve of after a hard day’s work. The result is a Lager that is crisp, clean, and crushable. Whether you physically or mentally worked hard today, raise a pint of this in honor of another work day done. Cheers!

Park City Lager

ABV: 5.8%
The Dortmunder Lager was originally brewed for German workers in the 19th century and never had an ABV below 5%. Park City Lager is slightly maltier and deeper gold than a Pilsner. It is light enough to quench thirst, but hearty enough to be a reward after a long day at work.

Walk in the Woods Raspberry/Black Currant

ABV: 5.2%
Take a “Walk in the Woods” to find a wheat ale brewed with real Raspberry and Black Currant puree. The appearance comes from the haze of the wheat and the deep purple of the berries. This spritzy drink is semi-sweet and has a clean finish.

Wisconsin River Brown Ale

ABV: 5.4%
Our brown ale is slightly nutty, has moderate roast flavors and finishes with a solid, earthy-hop background. This brew gets its name from the dark and murky Wisconsin River water that carried all the logs heading to various sawmills throughout Wisconsin.

Walter Amber Ale

ABV: 5.8%
This beer is named after a famous Merrill Truck named Walter. Walter’s owner died while on deployment in Iraq in June of 2006. Our wonderful community came together to help restore this truck, knowing how much it meant to him and his family. The beer is deep red in color, sweet on the nose and leaves a pleasant, slightly-sweet, malty aftertaste.

Gojira-Belgian Strong Ale

ABV: 9.8% IBU: NA
This Belgian Strong Ale was made using maple sap from the Krueger Crew, instead of water, leaving it big and bold with plenty of flavor. A crisp spiciness compliments fruity aromas and flavors that finishes with a touch of sweet malt flavor.
