Ghost Isle Beer

Our 10 barrel system is from American Beer Equipment out of Lincoln, Nebraska. The steam-powered brew house is highly efficient and its automated features allows for easy brewing. Our brewery consists of 4 fermenters and 8 serving tanks, giving us the ability to offer a wide selection of styles. As we continue on our journey we plan to dive into the depths of experimentation and create unique beers and flavors to keep it new and exciting.

New Buffalo Pilsner
 
4.7% ABV    16 IBU

All Pilsner malt creates a biscuit-like flavor, perfectly balanced with an earthiness from traditional German noble hops.

MI Time - Blonde Ale

Take time to enjoy the simple things, like this blonde ale brewed with rice, which adds a subtle layer of flavor and texture.

High Strangeness - Brown Ale w/ Local Honey
 
5% ABV     20 IBU

All the nuttiness and caramel character one expects from a brown ale, and flavor and sweetness provided by locally sourced wildflower honey.

Stoner’s Paradise - Hazy Pale Ale
 
5.2% ABV     42 IBU

You asked for it, you got it. This hazy pale ale is packed with tropical hop flavors and aromas but with little to no bitterness. It has a smooth creamy mouthfeel but is light and refreshing. Definitely a porch drinker.

Marzen Vaders - Marzen 
 
6.6% ABV     15 IBU

Our Marzen is made as traditionally as we can without aging it in wooden casks in a cave in Bavaria. Amber, and malty, with a lightly caramel-like finish.

Black Stout 
 
6.6% ABV     18 IBU

A stout drinker's stout that offers the smooth, full body, hints of chocolate and coffee, and the comforting richness of a beer that can be enjoyed any time of the year.

Cruisin' Cantilever - Midwest IPA 
 
7.1% ABV     45 IBU

A malt backbone that's heftier than a crisp West Coast IPA, and a hop profile that is more herbal and floral make up an IPA representative of the Midwest. Bright, aromatic, slightly sweet and always familiar! Ope!

Surf Garden - West Coast IPA
8% ABV     58 IBU

Full of classic American West Coast hops. Enjoy this ode to the style that started the original hops craze.

11.4% ABV     51 IBU

Here is our groovy Russian Imperial Stout aged in Journeyman bourbon barrels, lending notes of oak and vanilla to an already complex beer. Hail to the King, baby!
