This light flavored black lager is our version of a classic schwarzbier.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to medium-high carbonation. Black Bear is truly a beer that will surprise the drinker. It is overall dark, but very pleasantly sweet with no harshness that most would expect from a dark beer. This beer is available seasonally, so try it when you can.

This Bohemian styled Pilsner is rich and malty. The hop character is spicy due to the use of Czech Saaz hops. MSB’s Golden Pilsner is not quite as bitter as its German Pilsner cousin.

This beer has won many awards, with the most prestigious being Gold at the World Beer Cup in 2010.

overpowering, and is quite quaffable. Honey Wheat has a low hop bitterness that is balanced out by the honey malt used in the mash. The mouthfeel is smooth and crisp, and has medium to high carbonation. This beer is always a refreshing treat, and is available at our brewery year round.
