Beer List

MY TURN JUNK 4.2%

Kettle Sour with Cherries and Sakura

Junk pours up a vivid cherry-red, a promise of how it will smell and taste: bright cherry and fresh-baked bread aromas lead into fruity, malty flavors of tart cherry preserves spread on sourdough biscuits.

 

OKTOBERFEST 6.0%

Marzen-Style Lager

Heaps of Munich malt give the Oktoberfest its nutty, caramelly flavor, while Mr. Hood hops balance the substantially malty body making this a great rendition of a classic German lager. Prost!

Pale Ale

Pale straw in color with intense aromas of tropical fruit and pine

Bright in color, super aromatic with a punchy hop-forward finish.

 

WOLLERSHEIM WINE BARREL AGED BELGIAN 7% $10

Wollersheim Winery gave Lakefront a dozen-or-so used Chardonnay barrels which they used age a small batch of lightly-sweet Belgian Strong Ale for a year, where it picked up signature fruity and floral Chardonnay aromas along with creamy vanilla and oak notes.

 

NEW GRIST 5.1%

Gose-Style with Lime

With a punch of lime and hint of sea salt, this gluten-free, Gose-Style beer is sure to satisfy that hankering for something a little tart and super refreshing.

 

HAZY RABBIT 6.8% $6.5

Hazy Rabbit pours a bleary yellow-gold topped with a white, mousse-like head. Soaking up the goodness from Mosaic, Idaho Denali and Azacca hops added to the fermenter, Hazy Rabbit delivers sweet papaya, ruby-red grapefruit and lush pineapple aromas. A healthy dose of flaked oats in the mash add a mild sweetness and a smooth mouthfeel. Heaps of late-boil Idaho 7, Mosaic, and Citra hop additions saturate every juicy swig with over-ripe citrus and tropical fruit flavors.

 

BLACK FRIDAY BARREL AGED IMPERIAL STOUT 13.3% $12

Rich and chocolatey Imperial Stout, aged for ten months in bourbon barrels, picks up vanilla, oak, and toasted almond flavors.

BEERLINE BARLEYWINE 13.8%

Rye Whiskey Barrel-aged Barley Wine

Rich, malty and multi-layered, rye whiskey barrel-aged Beerline Barleywine is always Lakefront’s most ambitious release.  Held for 30 months in Catoctin Creek Organic Rye Whiskey barrels, the extended aging imparts unrivaled aromas of oak plank, vanilla, dark toffee, and pipe tobacco.  The taste matches the complex aroma: pleasingly sweet caramel malt and toasted almonds coupled with hints of vanilla and marzipan.  Chewy and full-bodied, Beerline Barelywine finishes with a mild alcohol warmth
