Take a gander at:

IRON DUKE'S BREWS

We will be brewing multiple styles of beer year round. The taproom at the brewery will feature at least 8 different Iron Duke beers once we're fully up and running. 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 this weekend are listed below. Be sure to visit our ››Find 'em‹‹ page to see who carries Iron Duke by you.
 

 

 

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) - LAUNCHING 5/29

This refreshing, hazy golden brew starts off with notes of citrus. A generous amount of rye malt brings a light earthy, spicy finish. Named after our favorite lifeguard (sorry Hoff), this white rye is the perfect beer for the summer months ahead. ABV – 5.2%   IBU - 19


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

 

Sinker (Breakfast Stout)

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- 29.2

 

Wildcard (Black Lager) 

Wildcard is inspired by our unpredictable brew master in training. At 3'6" tall, our Wildcard used a step ladder to help Dad "mash-in" this Black Lager.  Wildcard takes a heavy German Schwarzbier influence and melds that traditional style with an American backbone of yeast and hops.  The subtle chocolatey flavor at the start is followed by a clean smooth finish. ABV – 5.3%   IBU - 20

 

Stockhouse 122 (Hoppy Pale Ale) 

 

Named after our home away from home, this very sessionable pale ale will quench your thirst, while satisfying your craving for hops. Stockhouse 122 is brewed with a generous amount of full aroma American hops. ABV – 5.4%   IBU - 49

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

 

Rusty Horseshoe (Saison)

Our family ties are something that has 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

 

Iron Smith's (Seasonal Stout)

This stout is the 1st in a seasonal series collaboration with Smith's Billiards. A variety of dark malts were used sparingly to keep the body of this beer light. Floral hops add a nice aromatic floral texture and a hint of Belgian yeast gives this stout a spicy, fruity character.  ABV – 6.0%   IBU - 23

 

Truss (Barley Lager)

Named after the beams that hold this old Mill building together, this robust barley lager is packed with bold flavors. Bittersweet malt combined with a copious amount of citrus hops gives this beer a surprisingly smooth taste. ABV – 8.2%   IBU - 80
