Weelunk Blonde Ale paired with Detox Salad
4.8% ABV 16 IBUs
A refreshingly light-bodied blonde ale, with a hint of fruity aroma and light citrus flavor. Honey, and wheat malts, paired with Cascade and Saaz hops provide a pleasant experience, welcomed to the city named as “The Place of the Skull.”
McColloch’s Wheat Ale paired with Sweet Brisket and Berries
5.0% ABV 22 IBUs
An American Wheat Ale that is light in body with a crisp, citrus finish. Brewed with pale and wheat malts with hints of Cascade & Amarillo hops. You do not need to be as daring as Samuel McColloch and his horse to enjoy this brew.
Old Reymann’s Amber Ale paired with Beef Tenderloin
6.4% ABV 31 IBUs
This gold-burnished American Amber Ale is mildly sweet, mildly toasty, and characterized by a supremely gentle bite. Inspired by one of the most famous of Wheeling’s many historic breweries, this ale is a tribute to easy-drinking.
Moon Dog I.P.A. paired with Smoke Salmon Lettuce Wraps
6.2% ABV 60 IBUs
Named after local hero and icon Charles Waldrum, who is always pedaling his bike to help out! Our India Pale Ale has a slight sweetness and a nice balance with three hop varieties, creating bitterness, flavor, and aroma.
Nail City Porter paired with Short Bread
6.4% ABV 40 IBUs
A dark ale with a complex and toasty character achieved through the use of chocolate, caramel malts, and roasted barley . Brewed in tribute to Wheeling’s famous steel-production industry, this beer is the working man’s best friend
