-Seasonal Draft Only Beers-

Noodle’s Pale Ale

*NEW* On tap March 2019
The first in our new Brew Pup Series featuring our KBC staff's cool canines, Noodle's Pale Ale is named after the lovable Goldendoodle of owners Ted and Becky Nagy. Noodle is 10 years old, but plays like a big, fluffy puppy; her beer is copper in color with a lightly bready/malty front giving way to a pleasing hop finish.
A dry hopping of Mosaic, Centennial, and Iowa-grown Chinook gives a strong hop nose right from the start. And like Noodle, this brew is extremely easy to get along with.
