Our Canned Brews

Pick Axe Blonde Ale

The lightest in our family of ales, a true single malt. Refreshing to taste, gorgeous to look at and a great introduction to the extraordinary world of craft-brewed Michigan beers. This light golden ale comes with a distinctive malt flavor and just a kiss of hops.

Red Jacket Amber Ale

Medium bodied and lightly hopped, this classic Oktoberfest-style ale is brewed in tribute to the Red Jacket Mine of what is now Calumet and to the glory days of the copper industry in the Keweenaw Peninsula.

Lift Bridge Brown Ale

Winter Seasonal

Reportedly the widest and heaviest double-decked lift bridge in the world, the Portage Lake Lift Bridge connects the cities of Houghton and Hancock here in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula. So get a lift from this American Brown Ale; a rich, dark brown color, complex malt flavor with hints of chocolate and caramel and a mild hop finish.

Widow Maker Black Ale

Winter Seasonal

Don't let its looks deceive you. Clean and smooth, easy on the hops and easy on the palate; this light bodied ale has a surprising depth of malt flavors with pleasant hints of a smoky molasses.

Old Ore Dock Scotch Ale

A traditional Scottish ale, this darker beer focuses on malt color and flavor with hops being almost imperceptible. This ale, aged with American Red Oak, finishes crisp and a wee bit sweet.

November Gale Pale Ale

A golden pale ale, this beer has medium malt character, assertive hop flavor and bitterness with a distinctive fruity aroma and citrus finish.

UP Wit Bier

Summer Seasonal

U.P. Witbier is a delightfully smooth and refreshing classic Witbier. An unfiltered Belgian Style Ale that's pale and cloudy in appearance, brewed with barley, wheat and seasoned with orange peel and coriander.
