Fresh and hoppy IPA's, barrel aged sours, creamy stouts, crisp saisons, or eye-opening spice beers, Shanty Shack brews them all. Each beer is inspired by a unique experience, a season's bounty, or the perfect setting. Our tap list is constantly changing as we think of new recipes or find an oak barrel that is ready to serve. It is our hope that you discover new flavors and gain a deeper connection to the beer you drink with each visit to the Shack.

Fresh hop flavor with a nutty maltiness. Totally sessionable!
Prior to 1000 CE, almost all beer in Europe was brewed without hops. Gruit was a mixture of different spices that was required for brewers to purchase from the church. It was an early form of beer tax. Now, brewers use hops to balance sweetness from beer, but before, spices and herbs were used to bitter the beer. This gruit was bittered with orange zest, ginger, and a variety of other spices and has absolutely NO hops in it!
Nice hops on the nose with a nutty maltiness.
Aged in an oak barrel. Sour but balanced by a malty darkness. Available in bottles to go, too!
