This year there will be 25 different Dark Horse Brewing Co. beers on the docket and 15 beers on tap at a time.
The Cadillac Room
Plead The 5th Imperial Stout – Variant 1 #Rare Beer#
Double Crooked Tree – Variant #Rare Beer#
On "full body" scale pushing the envelope of what an American Brown Ale is to most people. The beer is a very deep/dark color of brown with a nice creamy tan head. The mouthfeel of the beer is very soft and is very drinkable. Flavors of malt, caramel, toffee, and a mild earthy nutty finish allow this beer to be paired with hearty food and sips of bourbon.
This is a light bodied easy drinking ale. They only use real raspberries so the flavor is very mild fruit and balanced, not what you would expect from a "fruit" beer. The way they see it is their brewers so lets make good beer, not some fruity carbonated malt beverage. Oh yeah, their motto... "beer first, fruit second"
Five High Harvest Ale
Made with hops harvested super fresh off the vine straight from High Five Hop Farms, Just 5.7 miles from Dark Horse Brewing Company.

Plead The 5th Imperial Stout – Variant 2 #Rare Beer#
Fore Smoked Stout
Number four in our stout series, this beer is brewed with all malted barley and hardwood smoked malt. Aromas of smoked chocolate and coffee leave way to a full-bodied stout with a smokey finish. Fore is a house favorite among the Dark Horse brewers.
Crooked Tree Ale
Inspired by West Coast I.P.A.'s, but brewed with Michigan style. The Crooked Tree is heavily dry hopped to give it a big aroma of pine and citrus. The flavors are big, yet very balanced between fresh hops and malt. Often described as \grapefruit\" our hops give this beer an excellent fruit flavor that finishes dry.
The First Elf (Winter Warmer) #Rare Beer#
Toonilla (BBA Coffee Stout with Vanilla Bean)
Cream stout brewed with coffee from Dark Street Roasting Company and vanilla beans.
Plead The 5th Imperial Stout
It's big and full bodied with lots of roasted malts and balanced with heavy hops to put this imperial in a league of its own.
JAA (Black Ale with raspberries) #Rare Beer#
Double Crooked Tree
Big hops balanced with tons of malt give this beer a huge body. Although this beer is as cool as "The Fonz" when first purchased, it gets really mellow and smooth with some age. After a year or two stored in a cool dark place you'll notice the heavy caramel and malt flavors are trying to sneak past the hops. This beer is hugely delicious so it will need your undivided attention.

VinylVinyl (Donut Stout) #Rare Beer#
Chocolate Chili Stout #Rare Beer#
The Robin Theatre
While the malt and hops give this beer an amazing copper color, medium body, and a smooth mouth feel, it's the yeast that sets this one apart from other amber ales. Inspired by almost everything from Belgium (beer, women, mussels) they thought it would be cool to give our Amber a little Belgian love. So we used a yeast that is ALMOST like a Belgian yeast strain. You'll notice it in the aroma but mostly in the flavor. Mild hints of light fruit and clove are present at the very end of the sip, just enough to keep you coming back for another sip
Reserve Special Black Ale
The Reserve Special is the oldest of all beers in the Dark Horse family. It has an incredibly “thick” presence and when poured into a glass its color is so dark it’s eerie. The flavors explode onto your taste buds with heavy malt, roast, and chocolate, but stay very balanced. The Reserve Special Black Ale has a hard time being called a stout or porter but it fits nicely into the category of a delicious strong black ale
Louie's Trophy House Ale
Scary Jesus Rock Star
Pale ale brewed with plentiful amounts of Apricots and Chamomile. A collaboration beer with Chef Cleetus Friedman of City Provisions.
