Our delicious variety of beers
Brewed to be a bright straw color, lightly sweet, with wheat added to create a crispness at the back of the palate. Crushed orange peel & coriander are subtly added to the final stage of the hot side, which lend to the clean aroma.
Vanilla Java Porter
A coffee beer that any brewer could make? Better check again. This is VJP – an easygoing dark beer with the makings of both a sweet-vanilla coffee house java and a smoky English style porter. Despite its looking every bit as black as a regular dark roast Joe, it goes down like it’s frothy with cream and sugar. Sip and ‘ahhh.’

Absolutely traditional in design and execution, Atwater’s Bloktoberfest exhibits bready, nut-like characters with a clean, light sweetness brought to heel by a crisp hop finish.
Bavarian in its ancestry, German Style Marzens were brewed only from the end of September through April. They were then stored cold and the remainder served at Oktoberfest to celebrate the harvest and the beginning of the brewing season. The style exhibits clean, bready, toasty notes with the increased alcohol and hop bitterness required for stability during aging.
Lebkuchen Christmas Ale
November - January
The Lebkuchen Christmas Ale is a deep amber ale that blends Maris Otter pale malt, notes of toffee-flavored Caramel malt, and a light touch of Honey malt.

A widely interpreted style that has its roots in the tradition of blending beers at the tap, porters are regarded as the first English ales with great followings. The modern Porter ranges from brown to deep black with ABV just as variant.
Mint Double Decadent
November - February

The fresh aroma of mint greets you as you raise your glass to your lips, while the taste of dark chocolate dances on your tastebuds, before finishing with the unforgettable combination of mint and chocolate. The result? A tasting experience that you’ll want to try again and again but get it while it’s hot! This beer is part of our Significant Series and only available for a limited time.
Decadent Dark Chocolate
Holding true to the Northern English tradition, the Decadent Dark Chocolate Ale at its foundation has a nutty profile with a round mouth feel. Added is a Chocolate Extract consisting of three blended chocolates of varied depth. The result is a rich, but not overtly sweet experience for both the beer and the chocolate enthusiast.
Originating in 17th century England, Brown Ales were held most dear in Northern England after WWII. The Brown Ale influence could also be seen in some early American Colonial brewing. Malty nut flavors tend to be more prevalent in the Northern English style, whereas direct malty sweetness tends to lead in the southern English versions.
Inspiration behind artwork: Eccentric, wild, bold, everything that a chocolate beer should be.

Detroit Pale Ale
This American Pale Ale is a respectful re-connection to the first beers released at the beginning of the craft beer renaissance in the United States. Moderate in body with the crisp piney finish of American hops. Relive the style that changed everything. American Pale Ales are cleaner, brighter more hoppy versions of the buttery English Classic. In a world of over-hopped beer, balance is the lost art in the style. These can vary widely from deep golden to rich amber.
A tribute to Detroit’s German roots, Atwater Lager is unashamedly traditional and brewed accordingly. The lightly floral aromas of German Hersbrucker hops are subtly featured here.
Purple Gang Pilsner
Brewed in strict German tradition, Purple Gang Pilsner is a steady reminder of the German domination of brewing before and during Prohibition. A light malty sweetness yields to the fine flavor and aroma of the noble Tettnang hops.
While Pilsners were a Czech staple, the Germans developed a style distinctly their own. A bit lighter and brighter than their Bohemian counterparts, this classic lager style was prevalent in the myriad German breweries throughout urban immigrant America.
