The beautiful maple syrup aroma and flavor come through in beer with the orange hues coming from the balance of Vienna and specialty malts. Fairly simple in stylistic terms, a very basic ale fermentation and short cellaring time. Being true to the word “harvest”, we are using locally produced maple syrup (at the rate of almost a quarter ounce of syrup per glass!)
Named after a local single-track mountain bike trail on Mt. Ashwabay. This traditional American style blonde ale has a blend of Wisconsin Honey, Cascade hops, Munich Malts and English Yeast to make this beer very approachable to most craft beer enthusiasts.
A very smooth and pleasant lager beer. The beautiful color and depth of flavors is achieved by a dominance of Vienna malt with additions of rye and caramel malts. The crispness and drinkability come from lagering and the flavor balance is created by Cascade and Liberty hops. We think you’ll enjoy this beer compared with others of the same style.
Happy Anniversary South Shore Brewery!
We release our ESB annually for our anniversary celebration every May.
There are two things that distinguish this pale ale from our standard pale. First, is the color. We’ve made some minor deletions in some dark caramel malt, and the most obvious is that we poured the hops into it. With a bitterness similar to our India Pale Ale, this beer features Northwest American Palisades and Simcoe varieties for bittering and aroma hops.. (The IPA featured English style hops). Not for the faint of heart. A bold, assertive brew with distinguishing citrus aromas and flavors from the hops, yet the malty sweetness is there enough to provide flavor stability.
Six 12oz. bottles at retail stores seasonally and on tap.
Inspired by Bayfield’s renowned Applefest, which is celebrated with extraordinary fanfare, the South Shore Brewery shares in the moment through this brew. Combining the flavors and aromas of locally produced honey, apple cider, and specialty malts, we have produced one of the most unique products, to be sure. Because of the generous amounts of honey, the special maturation process with the apple cider, and the unique flavors of malt, this brew is indefinable in conventional beer terms. It has characteristics of beer, mead, and champagne. Our brewer encourages you to cellar a bottle or two for special occasions.
