What's On Tap

Year Round Flagships

K4 - Pilsner
Pilsner malt, flaked rice, and Cascade hops complete this super crushable, effervescent beer that will be sure to go with you everywhere an easy-drinkin' beer is meant to go.
K4 - American IPA
Hopheads crusade on a heroic quest for the holy grail of India Pale Ales. The subconscious composes paradisiacal scenes of malty waves crashing on a ripe lupulin landscape cascading hop flavors and aromas in profuse abundance. With humble confidence we offer this brew as fantasy made reality. Balanced in every detail and gushing resinous, exceptional citrus flavors and aromas that collaborate with soft bready notes surrendered from premium English golden malted barley, this beer is a tropical dreamscape. Epic.

Ale Asylum - Hazy IPA
A Session IPA in the New England-style, with a hazy juiciness at a crushable 4.7% abv.
K4 Malt Bomb - Porter
As the weather gets colder, we thought it would be a good time to turn our packaging manager loose on our pilot brewing system and let him brew what he loves: the darkest of dark beers – but without outrageous amounts of alcohol, or artificial flavors meant to taste like a pastry chef quitting their job in a blaze of glory. Instead, we reached back in time and cherry-picked what we thought would add a nice layer of flavor to a modern Porter: brown malt. This beer will be heavy on the roast, but light on the sweetness and just right on the alcohol at 5.3%.

Taproom FAQs


Tom Kowalke – Fredrik – Impulsism – For every beer released in the first couple of years of Karben4, Fredrik created a painting to go with the beer. We weren’t packaging at the time, so we loved the idea of having this visual connection to the beer. We would host a party every time we released a beer to show off the new art. We also used the painting as sound panels. We loved the way that we could have different ways for guests to plug into the brand, visually with the paintings, reading the colorful beer descriptions that Ryan wrote, as well as tasting and smelling the beer.


Maybe…Make us an offer!


Yes. We are exploring other taproom locations and hope to maybe someday build a new production facility.


A lot of reasons. Quality of product is a big reason. First, cans keep the beer away from light contamination. That is just not something that bottles can do as efficiently. Glass failure is also a deciding factor. When glass “fails” it is a lot more dangerous than when aluminum fails. Cans are also easier to package and store, more efficient spatially, and are more efficient in recycling. Finally, we have made the move to a more automated packaging process and simply didn’t have the room to install a packaging line for both cans and bottles.


After almost dying of “humane methane” (farts) we decided that shelling thousands of eggs wasn’t worth it anymore. We’ll let those continue to be holiday treats.
