OUR BEER . THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!
Or at least a very close second to the hokey pokey
Our beers don't have an ATTITUDE... they have personality. Our brews will comfort the newly acquainted craft beer fan, all the while impressing even the most critical aficionado. We feature 6 year-round flagship beers as well as a plethora of creative seasonal and experimental selections to compliment Michigan's full-bodied seasons. Scroll down to see what awaits you at our family-operated tap-house.
American Cream Ale - 4.5ABV 16 IBU
This is our go-to beer if you're new to the craft brew scene or are just looking for a refreshing drop. It's a smooth operator, light-bodied, easy-drinking and a crowd pleaser. Malt sweetness perfectly balanced with just a touch of hop bitterness make this one a reliable local.
This original style from our head brewer was born from a mistake and refined with time. It's made with a healthy dose of classic American hop varieties and a 50/50 wheat/barley base. Caramel malts provide the deep amber color and add some malty complexity to this hearty, yet well-balanced and smooth-drinking Amber Ale.
Amber ALE- 5.1ABV 29IBU
Belgian Whitbier - 5.1ABV 15IBU
Our Belgian wheat beer is a classy act. Cloudy and pale, the delicious base of wheat and malted barley is rounded off with a hint of citrus. This is usually a summer thirst-quencher, yet the complex flavors and slight spiciness will have your tastebuds singing any time of the year.
English Brown Ale - 5.3 ABV 31IBU
Avery Brown was a local wolftrapper back in the day (and one of the first to settle the town of Oxford). Like it’s namesake, this brew is a good friend to have in the long winter months. The roasted malts in this American Brown Ale bring out notes of chocolate and caramel. If you like ‘em a little nutty, then this one is for you.
India Pale Ale - 6.7 ABV 55IBU
This is the hop-lover’s beer. We got American malt together with Australian Galaxy hops to have a party on your tongue. A strong bitterness, kept in check by a respectable malt addition, really shows off the unique tropical fruitiness from our southern hemisphere hop selection.
American Stout - 6.0 ABV 37 IBU
“Building a Steamboat” is our brewer’s retort if you ever ask him what he’s been up to. In reality, he’s been creating this soulful, American stout - a brew that requires a generous use of roasted malts (and some rather heavy lifting). Rich, dark-bodied and lightly-hopped, this flavorful pint is reassuringly smooth to drink and hints at coffee and chocolate.
This is where our brewers really branch out. Check in to see what our four rotating seasonals are: from Coffee Porters, Raspberry Witbiers, New England IPAs, Australian Sparkling Ales to Bourbon Barrel-aged Stouts, the folks wielding the beer paddles will keep you coming back for more.
A word from our brewmaster
HomeGrown has set out from the start to create "Down-to-Earth" craft brews. We focus on brewing great examples of classic styles and we strive to keep a very drinkable portfolio. We use local, Michigan ingredients whenever possible and are always striving to improve our process to make your beer taste better.
But, some of you may be asking "WHERE ARE THE BIG BEERS!? WHERE ARE THE SOURS!? WHERE IS THE WEIRDNESS!?" Fear not! In addition to our 6 core beers, which we will aim to have available at all times, we have reserved 10 taps to host an ever-changing list of seasonal and experimental brews (think double IPA, pumpkin ale, coffee porter, wild yeast strains, and barrel aged imperial stouts...) These tap handles will keep you coming in weekly to see what is going on.
