BREWER'S NOTES
Venture Pils is the Brewer’s Beer here at Bent Paddle. It is the quintessential representation of beer brewed with the pristine waters of Lake Superior. Venture Pils uses no water chemistry adjustments – just pure Lake Superior Water which highlights what can be done with this incredible resource. Weyermann Pilsener Malt from Germany is the base malt used in this beer. A cracker-esque malt characteristic that resonates through is balanced out by the snappiness of European Noble hops and a clean lager yeast profile from the Ausustiner Lager strain. A touch of a floral hop flavor and aroma makes this brilliantly clear lager refreshing all year round.

BREWER'S NOTES
14 Degree ESB is Bent Paddle’s most award-winning beer. With a respectable Bronze, Silver, and Gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival, this brand is truly a unique beer that pays homage to the traditions of its style, all while bending tradition to a more modern craft beer drinker. Utilizing Pale malt and a variety of European character malts this beer has complex malt driven flavors and a deep amber color. Expect notes of biscuit, toast, caramel, and slight notes of prune. We balance the malt complexities out with a blend of American and English Hops that give it a bright herbal, fruity, and floral hop presence.

Cold Press Black Ale gives the drinker all of the pleasantries of our Black Ale mixed with our house made Cold Press utilizing beans from Duluth Coffee Company. We’ve moved to a single source farm in Colombia where the beans are grown and then sent up to Duluth Coffee Company to be roasted. Once roasted, we make our cold press in house and infuse into our Black Ale post centrifuge at a rate of 1 gallon per barrel. Expect the rich chocolate and roast characteristics to blend nicely with the Cold Press infusion, bringing the coffee notes to the forefront of your pallet with a pleasantly smooth finish.

Classic Cream Ale is Bent Paddle’s take on a straight-forward, easy drinking beer. This well-balanced beer has a light expression of hops and malt while allowing for the yeast character to shine though. We use a Dry English Ale Yeast which brings a slightly fruity ester r. We use 2-Row malt for the base and add oats to up to 15% to bring a smooth mouthfeel to this light, crisp, and refreshing American Style Ale.
