Special Beer Releases:
  • Battle Kriek – American Wild Ale/Wild Specialty Beer (ABV 7.4%)
    • Brewed in honor of our original location in Battle Creek, MI Battle Kriek is a blend of a light Golden Sour Ale, a kettle soured Cherry Ale, a batch of our Apollyon Belgian Golden Strong, and a Golden Saison. All of these beers were aged in oak barrels for 8-18 months. Arcadia’s Brewers tasted every barrel project in the house to come up with a blend of 36 unique oak barrels from these 4 varied batches of beer. The combined flavor profiles of wood and light biscuit, tropical and citrus fruits, and a classic farmhouse funk were mixed with 1,200 pounds of Michigan cherries!

      Pinkish ruby in color with a slight haze and light pink foamy head, this American Wild Ale/Wild Specialty Beer comes in at 7.4%. Aromas of cherry pie, citrus zest, peaches, and pastoral settings mirror the flavors of tart cherry pie, acidity from wild fermented sour cherry champagne as well as tropical and citrus fruits. A very dry and slightly tannic, thin mouthfeel is balanced by bright fruit and citrus acidity.

      BATTLE KRIEK BOTTLE PRE-RELEASE: special pre-sale of 750ml bottles of this anniversary ale. Place your pre-order at the bar; $9.99 per bottle/$120.00 per case. Pick-Up Party December 17th from 11am-12 noon with free Breakfast Buffet for all pre-orders.
