Our Beer

Our Rotating List

    

              -Pan Yan (Porter)


Just like the first tavern in this area bringing community together to form Oakley, then later Fort Ball and Tiffin.  Our Pan Yan brings a strong center of gravity on the roasted malt. As the focal point, it draws in a well rounded balance, complimented by subtle tones of maple and pecan. This Christmas seasonal ties in to the spirit of bringing together those near and dear to us, and surrounding yourself with familiar faces. 


-Screamin’ Mimi (Red Ale)


Just as Thrilling as going to the bridge and beeping your horn three times with the lights off. Our Red Ale tells a story of its own with a firm sweetness that teases your excitement and anticipation to a crisp and abrupt finish much like that final night for Mimi. A banshee may not show up next to you, but if you drink too many, you might hear one screamin’ in your head the next morning.


-Scutch Ale (Scotch Ale)


Just as down to earth as the folks from McCutchenville (pronounced Scutch), our Scotch Ale brings out a pleasantly subtle hint of smoke riding on the sweet waves of nearly caramelized malted grains. A low hop profile gives way to focus on the grains of this hearty ale.


-Dragon Bottom Paddler’s Ale (ESB)


Don’t let the name fool you. Our Anglo American Bitter takes from traditional ESB’s and balances the malts and hops into an earthy and almost herbal pale ale that harkens back to the days before hops started tipping the scale in their favor.


-Tippin Glass (Cream Ale)


Smooth and Creamy, this crowd pleaser is sure to harken back to the days of sneaking sips of your grandfather’s beer. A session-able ale that is sure to satisfy any beer drinkers pallet. Take a walk through American History with this popular Pre-Prohibition style of beer and taste the heritage of our Nation’s beer.

  

-Home Kids (American IPA)
 

Our American IPA pays homage to the Junior Order of United American Mechanics National Junior Orphans' Home.  Tiffin had the honor of housing orphans from sick and deceased members of the Order.  As the orphans grew up, many stayed in the area, giving many residents a deep connection to family history of those nicknamed "Home Kids".  Go ahead, grab one for yourself, and a friend.


-A Little is Good (session IPA)


Our house IPA is built to be enjoyed at a session-able pace. It harbors a mild tone of hops accompanied by a light malt body.  Go ahead, have another. 


-Iron Gate Abbey (Belgian Dubbel)


Our Belgian style ale will transport you to the back alleys of Belgium. Light fruity tones with malty body appeal to your senses as you sip on what teases to be something you might drink on a cobblestone patio in Europe.  Our location actually served as an alley between two buildings before being closed in, and the Historic Iron Gate serves as a reminder to those days, as well as a conversation piece. We hope you feel whisked away from your daily worries and enjoy some tranquility and have a mental vacation while drinking this beer.


-Seneca County (Porter)


As the seat of Seneca county, Tiffin houses the administrative porters in our county buildings. As such, we felt it necessary to provide an ale brewed with partly browned malts from higher temperatures. Just like the added pressure our civil servants face every day, our porter portrays an outward appearance of caramel sweetness despite its underlying hints of salty bitterness from the day to day rigors.


-Ale L’Orange (Hazy IPA)


This Citrusy IPA bears no fruit, rather just an abundance of hops that lends to a hazy, juicy blend perfect for any hop head on a hot day, or a cold day, or any day actually. 

  

-Boogie Hill (Imperial Oatmeal Stout)


Named after a concert series in the 70’s, Boogie Hill saw some of the biggest acts of the time. This powerhouse of a stout lives up to its’ name. The mouth feel starts out smooth and mellow just like a sound check. The body then lends to a light haze of smoke from the peated malt as the show sets into full swing. Just like the roar of the stage echoing through your head, this beer starts to ring if you sit and drink too long. As the headliner takes the stage, you realize the gravity of what you have just experienced, and hopefully enjoyed every minute. 


-Knight Shift (Chocolate Stout) 


Rich and malty, this Stout appeals to your sweet tooth with a steady influx of chocolate without going overboard. Dark and alluring, yet noble enough to find a seat at the round table.


-Bailiwicked (Coffee Wheat)


The looks of this beer may deceive you. Our Wheat Beer may look dark, but it is a light and refreshing ale made more robust by our friends at Bailiwicks Coffee Company. They roast the beans in house and change the blend to meet the season.

 

-Oakley (Dry Irish Stout)


“My Goodness, My Oakley” comes to mind with this crisp, dry finishing stout. We may not have been brewing it since 1759 like they have across the pond, but Oakley’s namesake is rich in local history.  Named after Tiffin’s first settlement after the War of 1812, which became known as Fort Ball after 1824. Tiffin became the settlement on the opposite side of the river in 1821 (Named after Ohio’s first Governor).  In 1850, both communities merged into one under the name of Tiffin. So, settle into your stool, and enjoy the merging of conversation with whomever is sitting across from you while enjoying this Irish Stout!


-Wet Hop Mess (IPA)


Fall harvest brings batches typically unavailable throughout the rest of the year with the addition of fresh hops not yet dried, and/or pelletized. This brew is no exception. Made with Chinook hops from Knaus Hop Farm in Lewis Center. The hops were added just hours after being harvested and delivered. Bringing you the freshest taste possible. With mild floral notes, and confident bitterness, this IPA should appeal to a wide range of IPA lovers, and beer lovers in general. 

  

-LocAle (SMaSH Ale)


This “Single Malt and Single Hop” Pale Ale is made with one Grain, and one Hop. Currently, we have Columbus Hops from Arcadia Buckeye Hop Farm wet hopped in the batch as fresh as fresh can be. Plans include using local grains in the future from our friends at Heartland Malting Company as soon as they open for business. This light Pale Ale is a gentle malt forward beer with a subtle hop balance bringing about a well-rounded session ale that can be enjoyed by many palette types.

 

-Bootlegger (Barrel Aged Series)


Our friends at Renaissance have graciously given us barrels from their small batch bourbons to age our beers in. This is the first of the series, which we chose to age our Scutch Ale in an attempt to compliment the nearly caramelized malts of the beer, and the smooth vanilla tones of the Knob Creek 120 proof Bourbon. The result is well balanced, with a nice warming on the nose, a strong approach, and a smooth subtle vanilla finish deserving of the barrel it has been aged in.


-Screamin’ Mimi Bonfire (Rauchbier)


Take the thrill of our Screamin’ Mimi and add a dose of mysterious smokiness into the mix. This fall seasonal screams football, bonfires, and perfect Halloween Weather. Try one, if you dare!


-Punkin Patch Porter


This robust porter is a hop forward porter balanced out in sweetness with a mild pumpkin addition. Just in time for Halloween and Thanksgiving, you will be thankful you tried it even if you’re not into pumpkin beers. This seasonal must have is a definite crowd pleaser.
