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 today are listed below. Be sure to visit our ››Find 'em‹‹ page to see who carries Iron Duke by you.
 

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
 

Stockhouse 122 (Pale Ale)

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 and a bit of malted rye.
ABV – 5.4%   IBU - 49
 

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 – 5.1%   IBU - 21

   

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

  


Shoes for Louie (English Strong Ale)

Irish music has usually been the music of choice on brew days.  On this particular day we decided to go a little more festive and mix it up. While we tried mixing it up, the radio did not. After hearing Dominick the Donkey for the 4th time we knew it was a sign… and now our English Ale will forever be known as "Shoes for Louie". 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

 

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

 

 

 

ON VACATION

 

Wild Card (Black Lager)

 Debuting at Smith's Billiards in Springfield on Wednesday, January 28th from 5 to 7pm.


   

"Sinker" (Breakfast Stout) - Back in February

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

 


Harvest Ale - 6.2% - Back Fall 2015
