At Double Clutch our beers are inspired by the long traditions and passions of German brewing.  The Bavarians so believed in the purity of their ingredients that they passed a purity law in 1516, the Reinheitsgebot.  We too believe that quality beers require quality ingredients.  We use only the finest malts and noble hops from Europe combined with purified Lake Michigan water. 

Kölsch  4.5% abv

Our Kölsch is a crisp, light version of the best ales of Cologne.  A well-balanced blend of select German malts, noble hops and top fermenting yeast give this beer a light-golden color.  Its slightly fruity character is sometimes compared to the Riesling wines of Germany.

Pilsner  5.2% abv

Our northern German variation of this popular style showcases the noble hops of Germany and the Czech Republic.  Germany’s finest Pilsner malt gives a nice bready backbone to balance an abundant amount of hops.  With less body than its Czech cousin, this refreshing beer really lets the hops come forward.

Hefeweizen 5.4% abv

Our effervescent, hazy wheat beer is inspired by the finest examples in Munich.  With notes of banana and clove this tangy and refreshing beer will quench any thirst.

Rauchbier Helles Lager  5.1% abv

Our smoked Lager is inspired by the malt forward beers of Bamberg.  No single moment in Germany had more impact on me as a brewer than drinking beer straight from the barrel at Aecht Schlenkerla in Bamberg.  The malt is dried over Beechwood smoke, giving the beer its unique flavor.  Balanced with the noble hops of Franconia, this beer is a unique pleasure.

Maibock 6.5% abv

Our medium-bodied "strong" pale lager is named after the month of May. It is Bavaria's traditional beer for welcoming the warmer days of spring. With generous additions of Munich and Vienna malts, this rich lager will thaw your soul and put a smile on your face.

Piwo Grodziske 3.2% abv

This mysterious Polish style was nearly extinct until interest spiked in the 21st century. Made entirely from wheat malt with a subtle hint of oak smoke, this effervescent beer was sometimes called "Polish Champagne."

Schwarzbier 4.7% abv

Our medium-bodied "black beer" gets its name from its almost opaque darkness. While showcasing heavily roasted malts with a hint of chocolatey sweetness, it finishes dry on the palate. This lager is surprisingly refreshing given its extremely dark color.

Smooth Alternator 7.2% abv

Our rich and malty, full-bodied lager honors the traditional "double strong" beers of Bavaria. Originally brewed by Benedictine monks, this "liquid bread" helped them through the long fasting period of Lent. Thirteen weeks of conditioning gives this lager its smooth finish. 

Shandy Pants Lemon-Ale - 4.6% abv

Our summer lemon-ale adds a touch of grapefruit and lime to accentuate that refreshing lemon flavor. Crisp and light, it’s a perfect refreshment for a day at the beach! 

Strawberry Fields 4.8% abv

Our strawberry-infused Belgian-style Witbier gets its "white" color from a blend of pilsner and wheat malts from Europe. A touch of oats gives it its creamy mouthfeel. Unlike German wheat biers, this style is spiced with Curaçao orange peel and coriander. 


Low Rider Session IPA 4.1% abv

Our lowest calorie beer gives a light touch of Centennial and Mosaic hops for a crisp and refreshing finish. A perfect thirst quencher for a long, hot summer day!
