St. George Baller Single Malt Whiskey




St. George Baller Single Malt Whiskey....$47.99
THE SPIRIT:  “A California take on the Japanese spin on Scotch whisky.” So says master distiller Lance Winters of this unique and inspired spirit, which was created with Japanese-style whiskey highballs in mind (hence the name Baller).

THE PROCESS:  We start with 100% American barley (predominately two-row pale malted barley, the remainder is lightly roasted).  After distillation in our eau de vie pot stills, the whiskey is aged in used bourbon casks and French oak wine casks, as well as filtered through maple charcoal.  We then finish the whiskey in casks that had held house-made umeshu(a Japanese style of plum liqueur we made entirely from California-grown ume fruit).

THE EXPERIENCE:   Crisp and dry, with a touch of malt sweetness. The smoky finish lingers and builds with each sip.  In addition to using in Japanese-style whiskey highballs, we also recommend Baller in a Boulevardier, or in place of Scotch whisky in a Bobby Burns or Rob Roy.


ABOUT THE LABEL
Distiller Lance Winters did the art direction for the label, which re-imagines the legend of St. George as a samurai. The original watercolor on the front label was by Oakland artist Sylvia Solochek Walters, done to emulate woodcut. The calligraphy was done by Eri Takase of Takase Studios.

Off Color Town Musicians Maibock Style Lager









Off Color Town Musicians Maibock Style Lager...$9.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
We filled our mash tun to the brim with lightly toasted malt and balanced it with just enough German hops before a long lager fermentation. The resulting beer features a Vienna malt profile balanced mostly by a round ethanol warmth and dark stone fruit esters in a traditional German lager perfect for days with cold mornings and warm afternoons. 6.5 % alc/vol

SECRET TECHNIQUES
Not messing much with this classic lager featuring lighter color but elevated alcohol. We just got mad and decided to brew a Maibock last April when the, like, hundred thousand American craft breweries there are were not making a Maibock when we wanted to drink one. Vienna malt comes to the forefront after selecting a specific lager yeast and fermentation temperature schedule.

Rockwell Fellow Traveler Foeder Pale Ale

Local craft brew!



Rockwell Fellow Traveler Foeder Pale Ale...$12.99 / 4pk cans
A classic base inspired by one of our all-time favorite Belgian-style pale ales, Fellow Traveler opens in the glass with brightly floral aromas complemented by orange caramels, tropical fruit, and an underlying funk from our house Brettanomyces. It spent 5 months developing in our new American oak foeder before dry-hopping with a blend of Hallertau Mittelfrueh, Michigan Cascade, and a touch of Citra, and then conditioning for an additional two months in package.
ABV: 5.0%

Imperial Milk Stout with peanut butter, marshmallows, lactose, cacao nibs, and vanilla | 10.5% abv 

Maybe you remember opening your own lunch box and discovering a fluffernutter sando waiting for you. This beer is inspired by the lunch box gem you'd never trade away - not for any amount of fruit roll ups, and certainly not for that lame turkey sandwich...
Just like the peanut butter fluff sando, this beer is basically dessert. It's fudgy, rich, and decadent.
**Brewed with real peanut butter.**


Pipeworks Brewing Mini Unicorn IPA....$10.99 / 4pk 16oz can

If you had a trapper keeper in the year 2000, you may know the vibes!
Mini Unicorn is a smaller, more mini, version of Ninja vs Unicorn! Instead of a Double IPA, this is a straight up 5% IPA absolutely bursting with hop aroma. This might just be a new favorite - and would you expect any less from mini unicorns?!

Main & Mill Lil' Jifforia Stout...$11.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
Stout brewed with peanut butter, cacao nibs, and lactose
The lil' buddy to our well received Imperial Jifforia series. With prominent peanut butter and chocolate notes, a velvety mouth feel, and a peanut butter cup like finish….this has been a pub favorite from the day we put it on tap. Flavorful yet crushable. The original.


Main & Mill Black is Beautiful Stout ....$14.99 / 750ml
Our version of Black is Beautiful was aged on cacao nibs and a bit of Madagascar vanilla lending toward a dark chocolate bar with a light vanilla finish. We made some slight alterations to the Weathered Souls original imperial stout recipe.

Main & Mill Dragon Punch • Sour w/ Acai, Blueberries, Pineapple...$11.99 / 4pk
Dragon Punch - 5.5% - sour brewed with Acai, Blueberries, and Pineapples
Dragon Punch is the newest in our Artist Series, a true collaboration with artists far and wide. We turn the tables and brew what we feel compliments the label rather than having a label completed to help define the beer.
Iyane Kane from Paris, France knocked out his second label in a series inspired by his love of Street Fighter. With the super bright and colorful look of our main character, along with the purple like tint of his karate (robe), we immediately were drawn to the dark and antioxidant rich açaí and blueberry with pineapple added for an extra fun touch. The fruits gave the beer a deep red color and a vibrant berry aroma...a perfect drink after a long day at the dojo.

Iyane Kane is an illustrator based in Paris, France. Passionate about comics, video games and american culture from a young age, he realized a dream by attending the Kubert School in 2008-2011. Since then, he went back to his hometown where he did commissions and illustrations alongside a more regular work. As of now, he’s working on getting his first comic book published in his home country. 



Main & Mill Urban Warrior • Sour w/ Sour Patch Kids....$11.99 / 4pk cans

Urban Warrior - 8% - sour brewed with blueberry, lemon, lime, and cherry Sour Patch Kids candies.
Urban Warrior is the newest in our Artist Series, a true collaboration with artists far and wide. We turn the tables and brew what we feel compliments the label rather than having a label completed to help define the beer.

This particular awesome label came from Iyane Kane from Paris, France and was inspired by his love of Street Fighter. Considering Iyane’s amazing arcade scene, we thought few things go better with those long arcade days than far more candy than one should have in a day…so with that in mind, we created our very first beer that brewed with actual candy. We took a kettle sour and loaded with over 260 pounds of actual Sour Patch Kids melted down into one of the best tasting liquids we’ve had, then added the intense candy syrup to the fermenting beer. The final result pours a somewhat hazy aqua blue/green and has a very pronounced Sour Patch aroma before leading to a nice candy like profile while maintaining the qualities that make it a beer. We feel the color and the beer itself helps to paint Iyane’s picture of those nostalgic days working hard to get your name on the top score board.



Main & Mill Double Fruited Sour Tiki Punch...$11.99 / 4pk cans
Double Fruited Sour • 8.0%
Loaded with over 60lbs of tangerines, pomegranates, and pineapples per barrel, this one's meant for drinking outside with the sun upon your face and the wind upon your back.









Main & Mill Sisyphus' American Lager with Jasmine Flowers...$9.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
We're inviting select long-standing brewpub team members to take a shot at creating their own beer! Everything from the concept, to the recipe, to working with our designer on ideas for the labels. Our staff is our family and we want them to have the opportunity to be more involved in our processes. To learn more about brewing, gain better understanding of the ingredients, and enjoy the creativity that comes along with it all. In celebration of them and their unique contribution to our team.

► FIRST UP! Sisyphus' Toil [Limited Release] • 5.5% ABV
Concepted by Tyler Bryant, team member since 2016, when he started as a dishwasher(!) and has continued to take on new roles, landing him today as our brewpub head brewer. Good guy to start with we thought!
This beer is a gluten-reduced American adjunct lager brewed for balance, and aged on jasmine flowers. Corn for added sweetness and to compliment the incredible aroma of Jasmine flowers, the combination makes for a perfect midwinter lager. *brewed with an enzyme to reduce gluten, tested and confirmed as ‘gluten-reduced’, showing under 10 ppm of overall gluten.




Main & Mill Irish Stout Paddy Stash....$8.99 / 4pk cans
May the beer rise up to meet your lips this St. Patrick’s Day. Straight from the Paddy Stash, a blend of dark malts and oats bring out notes of coffee and chocolate, with a balanced roast character and a dry finish characteristic of the Irish Stout style.





Main & Mill Coffea • Imperial Stout with Coffee...$19.99 / 750ml
10% ALC/VOL • Imperial Stout •
The first release in a new series that focuses on one adjunct from different regions, Coffea embodies what we love about one specific addition - coffee. This Imperial Stout was circulated and aged on a unique blend of Mississippi Mud locally roasted coffee sourced from Guatemala, Ethiopia, and Brazil. This blend was chosen because of the added qualities and complexities when blended with our stout base, lending toward notes of almonds, rich chocolate, and dark dried cherries while maintaining the same qualities that coffee nuts love.
With our Imperial Single Series, our goal is to pick out single adjuncts from different countries and regions to truly get a better feel for each specific addition and the qualities the terroir embodies. This bottle had a goal of finding a blend that gives multiple levels of coffee complexity while remaining smooth and enjoyable. We hope you like this as much as we do.

We are excited to be the only place outside the brewery to get this one at this point!
Main & Mill Cinnamomum Imperial Stout with Saigon Cinnamon...$19.99 / 750ml
10% ALC/VOL • Imperial Stout •
The second release in a new series that focuses on one adjunct from different regions, Cinnamomum embodies what we love about maybe our favorite stout adjunct - cinnamon. This Imperial Stout was circulated and aged on specially sourced Saigon cinnamon from Vietnam chosen for its high aromatic oil content and it’s unique sweet and spicy character. This particular base stout was brewed to exhibit notes of dried cherries, toast, and caramel that works perfectly with this specific genus of cinnamon.

With our Imperial Single Series, our goal is to pick out single adjuncts from different countries and regions to truly get a better feel for each specific addition and the qualities the terroir embodies. This bottle had a goal of finding an amazing pairing of sweet and spicy while maintaining the unique aromas of Saigon cinnamon…but not so much cinnamon that it comes off as spicy like heat. This stout turned out exactly as we intended and we hope you like this as much as we do.








Main & Mill Fruited Double Sour Cherry Keylimeade...$12.99 / 4pk cans
Cherry Keylimeade 🍒Double Fruited Sour • 8.0%
Ahh summer's past, drinking Sonic Cherry Limeades, with not a care in the world. Brewed with over 1300 pounds of sweet cherries, tart cherries, and key limes with a hint of lactose; it'll hit you with that unmistakable fruity vibe. A medium bodied sweet splash of optimism with a beautiful balance of acidity.






Main & Mill Ice Cream Daze Double Fudge Brownie Stout....$11.99 / 4pk cans
Stout brewed with fudge brownies, cacao nibs, vanilla, and lactose
ABV: 5.4%
Our new Daze series was developed to hone our pastry session stout craft. Our intention is to make incredible stouts that mimic some of your favorite desserts while sticking to an overall theme of drinkability.

This first release works to pack as much chocolatey goodness within a session stout framework as can possibly be expected. This beer is like a drinkable version of brownie batter while remaining enjoyable enough to savor and open more than one.

With the holiday season among us, we wanted to put out something that helps bring some holiday cheer, something that creates even more smiles than grandma's made from scratch brownies.
These have picked up a great following now that we can get them on a regular basis!
