Owners Jerry and Bertha Miller and Brewer Scott Butts invite you to become a part of today's brewing revival. This is what beer used to be - local, fresh, and distinctive.
Below is a list of our beers, a brief description of their flavors, and some notes on the ingredients used to make each one.
India Pale Ale (I.P.A.)
Our I.P.A. is a deep golden colored, british-style brew given a local twist by using American pacific-northwest hops. It was traditionally brewed with a much higher alcohol level and an increased dosage of hops as preservative measures to withstand the rigorous journey to India from Great Britain. You will find this one to have a full malty body and an overall hop assault in flavor and aroma. A staff favorite!
Original gravity: 1.070; Alc by Vol: 6.9-7.2%
Grains: Floor Malted Marris Otter Barley, Imported Crystal; Hops: Chinook, Cascade.
Harbor Lights Kolsch Style
Very pale in color, aromatic with spicy noble hops, and a palate that begins with a slightly sweet entry, blends in to hop flavors and mores on to a dry clean finish. One of the few "kolsch" (Cologne-style) beers brewed in America. Our version is made authentic by the kind gift of yeast from Cologne's renowned Paffgen Brewery. It was awarded a Silver Medal in the Kolsch Style category at the 1997 Great American Beer Festival.
Original gravity: 1.048; Alc by Vol: 4.0%.
Grains: Premium pale malted barley, malted white wheat; Hops: German Perle, German Tettnang.
A classic pils matured on a Czech lager yeast which produces a soft palate billowing with luscious malt and hop flavors. Dry-hopped with imported Saaz (Zatec) hops. It was awarded a Silver Medal in the European Pilsener category at the 1996 Great American Beer Festival.
Original gravity: 1.050; Alc by Vol: 4.2%.
Grains: Premium pale malted barley; Hops: Mount Hood, Saaz.
Nut Brown Ale
Dark brown with ruby highlights, mild aromas of chocolate and grain, a semi-sweet palate with notes of roasted malt, and a rounded finish. A flavorful beer but low in both calories and alcohol. It is our version of an English Brown Ale and was awarded a Silver Medal in that category at 1992's Great American Beer Festival, our country's only national beer competition.
Original gravity: 1.040; Alc by Vol: 3.0%.
Grains: Premium pale malted barley, malted wheat, chocolate malt, crystal malt; Hops: Fuggle, Willamette.

Original gravity: 1.055; Alc by Vol: 4.3%.
Grains: Premium pale malted barley, Munich malt, malted wheat, crystal malt; Hops: Fuggle and Chinook.
Double Eagle Imperial Stout
As deep and dark as the Moscow Nights and strong enough to warm the Czar's tootsies even in January! Based on an 1880 Whitbread Triple Stout recipe - the era when British brewers were in hot competition to sell strong beers to the countries of Northern Europe.

Grains: Vienna malt, Munich malt, pale malt, chocolate malt; Hops: Perle, Chinook, Mount Hood.
Seasonal Beer - Late Fall
Snug Harbor Old Ale
Ebony-colored with glimmers of crimson deep within, ripe aromas of roast grains, a smooth and powerful palate with unmistakable alcoholic pungency. A bow to old English "keeping ales", historically brewed well in advance of weddings, christenings, and even in anticipation of the crownings of kings and queens. Awarded a Bronze Medal in the Strong Ales category, 1993 Great American Beer Festival.

Grains: Premium pale malted barley, Munich malt; Hops: Cascade, Chinook, Fuggle.
