29/Eighty

American Pale
5.7% ABV • 38 IBUs

Named after our location, where we cross paths at the intersection of I-29 and I-80. This beer is not too hoppy and allows the malt to shine through. Medium body supported by Pacific Northwest hops.

Prickly pearendipity

Berliner Weisse – Sour
5% ABV • 8 IBUs

A kettle sour with over a pound of 100% real prickly pear puree per gallon of beer added during fermentation. The prickly pear is the fruit of a cactus, aptly named a prickly pear cactus.  The inside of the fruit has a vivid purple color similar to fuchsia and adds a beautiful and unique shade of red to the beer.  The aroma is a blend of earthy, floral, and soft fruits including strawberry and melon. The sweetness of the fruit slightly subdues the tartness and adds soft flavors that mirror the aroma. 

Double F’d IPA

Double IPA
9% ABV • 67IBUs

Double F’d IPA showcases Mosaic and Simcoe hop varieties with an abundance of hop complexity including citrus, berries, stone fruit, tropical fruit, as well as earthy and herbal aromas and flavors. Finishes with a sweet and subtle malt balance. The double F’d is for Full Fledged. Get your mind out of the gutter! 

Stay Oatful, Dream Big

Don Mega

Barleywine
9.6% ABV • 75 IBUs

Huge beer with tons of body, character and complexity. A very hoppy yet well balanced, high alcohol barleywine with a touch of sweetness. Belly up to the bar for this one with it’s high alcohol content!

Chli Buzz

Chili Beer
5.2% ABV • 12 IBUs

This beer has a touch of sweetness to counter the perfect amount of heat from the peppers used in this beer. The jalapeno aroma and flavor dominate this beer with fresh pepper character you would expect from a chili beer.

Dank Heavens

Loaded with Columbus and Simcoe hops from start to finish. Takes a step back from all the citrusy, fruity IPAs and delivers a dank IPA with a resinous finish. Thank heavens for this beer!

A smooth, clean, German, amber lager brewed with malt that is rich, bready and toasty. German hops were used to lean a balanced finish. 

Cafe Maxima

Coffee Beer
7% ABV • 10 IBUs

Brewed with rich malts, real pumpkin, and a blend of spices along with cold dripped Jazzy Java Coffee, which is from the local Em & Liv’s Hard Bean Coffee shop. Perfectly balanced to allow the rich malt to come through so you can still taste the complexity of a well-crafted ale. 

Spicy Nib

American Stout
7% ABV • 36 IBUs

Tons of roasted malt character layered with chocolate nibs and spice for added complexity. A wonderful chocolate aroma and flavor upfront, followed by a slight cayenne pepper spice that slowly creeps up behind
