Exterior Illumination

American Sour Ale brewed with cranberries, black currants, and Northern Michigan blue spruce tips.

In a continuous quest to harness the magic of the holiday season we curated a curious blend of flavored festivities: cranberries, black currants, and hand-picked blue spruce tips to brew this bright, tart, and particularly pink sour ale that will make your tongue glimmer like the four miles of lights we cover the Pub in every year. Drumroll please: this beer will teach you everything you need to know about Exterior Illumination.

Origin Story

The idea actually stemmed from us having left over fruit we needed to burn up. I thought this combo would be great and would also be a good holiday beer. Since we did "She's A Beaut" last year (2016) Ryan thought we should keep the Christmas Vacation names going, and he wants to make a new beer every year with some sort of quote from the movie ☺!
