Take a gander at:

IRON DUKE'S BREWS

We will be brewing multiple styles of beer year round. Unfortunately, not all of them will find their way out into the world so be sure to check back here to know what's on tap.

Beers on tap at the brewery this weekend are listed below.
Be sure to visit our ››Find 'em‹‹ page to see who carries Iron Duke by you.
 

 

Bourbon Barrel-Aged Shoes for Louie (English Strong Ale)

 

Irish music is usually the music of choice on brew days.  Though the first time we brewed this ale we decided to go a little more festive. After hearing Dominick the Donkey for the 4th time we knew it was a sign… This English Style Ale has a smooth sweet taste that lets the amber malts take center stage.  In this case you might find a nuttiness, dried fruits, and molasses flavor that will make malt lovers smile. ABV – 6.0%   IBU - 45

 


Juneau (Alaskan Spruce Ale)

This golden pale ale has a taste like no other. A light piney sweetness gives way to a clean, berry finish. A special thanks to our friend Mary for making this beer possible. ABV – 5.0%   IBU - 30

Generosity (Amber Lager) 

Generosity is our way of saying thank you to the countless friends and family that have been so generous with their time. Without them there would be no Iron Duke. This American Amber Lager has a bold malty sweetness with an oaky vanilla finishABV – 5.8%   IBU - 10

Herb (Raspberry Herbal Ale) 

We added Hibiscus Raspberry & Currant to this light, golden ale to give it a refreshing taste. Special thanks to our new friends, Tea Guys, for introducing us to this great herbal blend. ABV – 4.8%   IBU - 15

Baby-Maker (Irish Porter)

Baby-Maker, while Irish at its roots, has influences from all over the beer spectrum. This medium to dark colored ale is slightly malty sweet with a delightful roasted finish. No parent admits they have a favorite child, but here at Iron Duke the Baby-Maker holds a special place in our hearts. ABV – 5.4%   IBU - 24

 

The Common (Kentucky Common Ale)

A unique take on a little known style of beer known as Kentucky Common. This is one of only two types of beer that are known to have originated in the US. Since beer was a more sanitary choice, Kentucky coal miners would drink this beer throughout the day rather than water. Brewed with a combination of Malted Barley, Malted Rye, and Flaked Maize this beer makes for a refreshing and light taste experience. ABV – 4.6%   IBU - 21

Wendy Peffercorn (White Rye)

Welcome back Summer!!! This refreshing, golden brew starts off with notes of citrus. A generous amount of rye malt brings an earthy, spicy finish.  ABV – 5.2%   IBU - 19

Rusty Horseshoe (Saison) - LAST KEG

Our family ties have allowed us to come into being as a brewery.  The Rusty Horseshoe is named in honor of our family’s farm which is home to a fledgling crop of hops.  As we come into our own over the next several years we will hopefully watch this crop of hop plants become fully mature and yield harvests that support and grow our brewery. A Saison is originally a Belgian style ale that was traditionally brewed during the cool spring season and was hearty enough to last through the hot months of summer but still light bodied and refreshing to quench the thirst of all those who worked around the farm. ABV – 6.0%   IBU - 25

Sinker (Breakfast Stout) -- POURED ON NITRO

Most early morning work days here at the brewery are accompanied by a heavy duty donut (or two) from our favorite local bakeries.  Without fail, they have provided us with a little motivation and a sugar pick me up to power through those tough jobs.  These extra large pastries have come to be known as sinkers here at the brewery.  Our Breakfast Stout is a hearty treat for any beer drinker.  It is brewed using traditional ingredients of an breakfast stout but with a little extra chocolatey goodness that makes it a beer to savor.  5.0% ABV  IBU- 29

Honey Wheat (Kottbusser Ale)

Honey Wheat, is our take on the German Kottbusser style. This style was forbidden in Germany for hundreds of years because of the German Purity Law which prohibits the use of ingredients such as honey or molasses. Lucky for us the recipe snuck out. This full bodied beer has the characteristics of a true German style ale, a crisp pilsner malt nose gives way to a dry, slightly bitter finish. Thanks go out to Hampden County BeeKeepers for the key ingredient in this beer.  ABV – 6.4%   IBU - 18

Dead Nuts (American IPA)

Throughout construction, a phrase that you would inevitably hear shouted out here at Iron Duke was “Its Dead Nuts”. This was usually in reference to something that was installed perfectly level or dead on its target. Dead Nuts, the beer, is a perfectly balanced American IPA that finds the sweet spot of Malt and Hop balance.  The spiciness of Rye shows up again and is amplified by the use of American hops such as Chinook and Falconers Flight to name just a couple. ABV – 5.6%   IBU - 66

Stud-Finder (Double IPA)

While we used more tools during construction/deconstruction than we can count, some tools standout among the crowd. Stud-Finder is the second IPA offering in our Construction Series of IPA’s. This Double IPA packs a bigger, bolder Hop and Malt punch than its Dead Nuts counterpart.  We’re very excited to have experimented with Topaz, an Australian hop variety, to stand up alongside with our American variety favorites.  ABV – 7.7%   IBU - 87
