Celebrating the First Day of Summer!!
We will have the following Dark Horse Brews on Draft

Crooked Tree I.P.A.
Inspired by West Coast I.P.A.ís, but brewed with Michigan style. The Crooked Tree is heavily dry hopped to give it a big aroma of pine and citrus. The flavors are big, yet very balanced between fresh hops and malt. Often described as "grapefruit" our hops give this beer an excellent fruit flavor that finishes dry, crisp, and clean. It will pour a nice deep copper color with a bit of haziness. Because of our almost patented "Intense Transfer Methods" our Crooked Tree has won several medals in the India Pale Ale category. 6% ABV



Raspberry Ale
A lot of people have asked us "why are there Beeís on the label?" Well, we donít really have an answer for you other than they just look cool. This is a light bodied easy drinking ale. We only use real raspberries so the flavor is very mild fruit and balanced, not what you would expect from a "fruit" beer. The way we see it is weíre brewers so lets make good beer, not some fruity carbonated malt beverage. Oh yeah, our motto..."beer first, fruit second". 5% ABV



Reserve Special Black Ale

Conceived in a dimly lit room on a blistery cold night in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, but born and raised here in Marshall Michigan. The Reserve Special is the oldest of all beers in the Dark Horse family. It has an incredibly "thick" presence and when poured into a glass its color is so dark itís eerie. The flavors explode onto your taste buds with heavy malt, roast, and chocolate, but stay very balanced. The Reserve Special Black Ale has a hard time being called a stout or porter but it fits nicely into the category of a delicious strong black ale. 7.5% ABV



Double Crooked Tree I.P.A.

Have you read the description for the regular Crooked Tree yet? Well this beer is almost the same just double the flavor and alcohol. We actually took the Crooked Tree recipe and doubled all of the ingredients except the water, just the way a DOUBLE should be made. Big hops balanced with tons of malt give this beer a huge body. Although this beer is as cool as "The Fonz" when first purchased, it gets really mellow and smooth with some age. After a year or two stored in a cool dark place youíll notice the heavy caramel and malt flavors are trying to sneak past the hops. This beer is hugely delicious so it will need your undivided attention (the chores can wait....trust us). 12% ABV



Plead the 5th Imperial Stout

Itís big and full bodied with lots of roasted malts and blanced with heavy hops to put this imperial in a league of its own.



The Rod

Rod it is a 7% red ale infused with aphrodisiac herbs that effect both men and women. The herbs are horny goat weed, ginco, passion flower, rose hip, and some others I canít recall. Studies have shown more of a residual effect about 12 hrs or so after consuming a couple few pints.
