Bombshell Blonde - Our lightest offering, this Kolsch style ale is brewed with just a touch of wheat and Tettnanger hops 4% A.B.V.

Rubber Chicken Red - This smooth and malty red ale is brewed with a blend of four malts and Liberty hops. 5.5% A.B.V.

Twisted Turtle Pale Ale - This English-style pale ale is a Franklins favorite, brewed with Crystal and Pale Ale malts and Magnum and Yakima Goldings hops. 6.5% A.B.V

Private I.P.A.- A traditional British-style India Pale Ale with great hop bitterness, this is one of our strongest regular offerings at about 7% A.B.V.

Flagship E.S.B. - Darker and richer than the pale ales, this smooth and well-hopped Extra Special Bitter is a true expression of the brewer's art. 6.5% A.B.V.

Anarchy Ale - Charles' signature brew is made differently with each incarnation and is usually one of our hoppiest offerings. This batch is reminiscent of our first anarchy -- refreshing and lighter in color than recent offerings and heavy on the Cascade hops. 5.5% A.B.V.

Franklinstein Barley Wine - One of our winter seasonals, this year's smooth and strong barley wine tips the scales at 10% A.B.V and is served by the half pint.

One Tonne Imperial I.P.A - This extra-hearty I.P.A combined a metric tonne of malt and 88 lbs. of hops to form a big beer with bite. 11% A.B.V, Served by the half pint.

Imperial Stout - Deceptively smooth for a beer weighing in at 10.5% A.B.V., this stout has a rich chocolate aroma and flavor and packs nearly an ounce of malt per ounce of beer. Served by the half pint.

The Nitro-Version - One of our beers is also available poured through our new nitrogen system for a smoother, creamier texture. Ask which beer is currently on the line.


Sampler Trays also available with 4 oz. portions of anywhere from four to all of our current beers.

We also serve Budweiser, Miller Lite, Michelob Ultra, and Woodchuck Cider in bottles.
