What's On Tap

Draft Beers


Ale Asylum - American Pale Ale
Eleven separate additions of Cascade hops give our flagship beer bold hop flavor and lush citrus aroma without crazy bitterness. This American Pale Ale is available year-round both packaged and on tap.
IPA - Core Beer
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.
Pilsner - Core Beer
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.

Hawk Jones

Session IPA - Core Beer
Clean and crisp Session IPA brewed in memory of Major Rocky "Hawk" Jones and dedicated to all servicemen and women, in particular, the airmen and families of the 115th Fighter Wing. Thank you for your service.
Slow IPA - Collab w/ Working Draft
We're in a constant state of amusement at the various types of IPAs that seem to keep appearing over the last few years. So if we get the chance to poke fun at it, we're going to, so we're calling this a "Slow IPA". Really it's a German-style Pilsner fermented with a new thiolized lager yeast. At the heart of this collaboration is the fact that Clint at Working Draft brews amazing lagers, and we are pumped about what can happen when you cross one of his beers with our recent yeast experiments.

Disaster Artist

Hazy Oat IPA w/ Phantasm
This Oat Ipa is a hazy with a super smooth finish


Hazy IPA
Radikatz reliably reports rediculously rambunctious results, releasing relentlessly reverberative recommendations. Basically, Radikatz is Radikool.

Who Run the World?

Hazy Double IPA - Womens' Day Beer
Welcome back, Miranda! Our former brewer spent a day with us to brew this Hazy Double IPA with a crew of Karben4 women in honor of International Women’s Day on March 8. Brewed with the latest blend of Pink Boots hops – released annually to raise money for providing educational opportunities to women in brewing – this beer brings big orange and mango flavors to your glass, with just enough herbal backbone to remind you that you’re drinking a hop grenade.

Block Party

Amber Ale
The amber you've always wanted. Crisp and clean, but full of flavor: milk caramel, toasted biscuit, and sweet wheat. A medium-bodied brew that has character yet remains an all-game drinker that always satisfies, never disappoints, and plays well with many types of food. Like Goldilocks- just right.

Peach Haven

Peach Lager - Brewers Series
When the 90s died, some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. High on that list, for us at least, were delicately fruited ales that didn’t taste like cough syrup or send their drinkers into diabetic shock. The brewers at your favorite local taproom are old enough to have experienced them firsthand, and they've waited their whole careers for the moment when the universe would need this exact revival. Enter Robbie, who you may know from other such shrewd consumer insights as Better Luck Next Time. He wanted to brew a peach lager, and we sure as Hell weren’t gonna stop him. This easy-drinking, golden-colored peach lager will make you want to blow up your TV.

Orange Guava Milkshake IPA

Milkshake IPA - Collab w/ Dangerous Man Brewery - Contains Lactose
It’s no secret that Patrick, our former head brewer but forever BF, has a raging fungal crush on thiolized yeasts. As a parting gift to us, he got together with our friends at Dangerous Man Brewing Company in Minneapolis and designed a recipe to help us eat less ice cream. The orange flavor comes from tangerines, but the guava flavor was produced by an exciting new yeast strain called Helio Gazer. So raise a glass to Patrick, but don’t forget to wipe off your Milskhake IPA mustache when you’re done. Contains lactose.

Happy Silly Time: It's Noon O'Clock Somewhere

Sour Lime Fruited Gose

Awildan Pub Ale

Pub Ale - Collaboration with Awildan Distillery
Sitting happily between a stout and a brown ale, Awildan’s Pub Ale is inspired by the beers of yester year that were a blend of freshly brewed ale, and older, conditioned ale that would have a touch of sourness from naturally occurring lactobacillus. To achieve the famous Guinness “twang”, the Awildan Pub Ale took about 3% of the wort and fermented it with Sourvisiae yeast, then blended that back in with the base beer. The result is a well balanced brew that constantly invites the next sip.

Dry Irish Stout

Threat Level: Midnight

S'mores Stout
Everything we could get our grubby mitts on went in the brew: chocolate rye and wheat, caramel rye and wheat, toasted buckwheat, blackstrap molasses, baker's honey, milk sugar, cacao nibs from Ghana and Ecuador, and then we even set up a hardwood fire behind the brewery and roasted 14 pounds of marshmallows that made their way to the brew kettle.

Priest Prophet & King (2023)

Barrel-aged Barleywine - Anniversary Special
Welcome to this year's offering of Priest Prophet & King. The barrels used for this batch are: port wine, cherry brandy, blackberry brandy, Brown-Foreman Bourbon, corn whiskey, brown sugar rum, maple/ cinnamon/ vanilla whiskey, young rye. Though the blend creates a vintage experience, the familiar promise of a lavishly malty barley wine is held true. You will love the bountiful caramel, figs, currants, raisin, and stone fruit flavors as they meld with the delicate highlights of the individual barrels. PPK is calling you by name - come and see!

Fantasy Factory: Grand Cru

10 year anniversary - Grand Cru
In celebration of 10 incredible years, one way to say "Thank you!" properly is to brew a batch of Fantasy Factory grand cru style! 10% ABV and all dials turned up 10. Everything you love about Fantasy Factory, just more More MORE! Let's Gooooooo!

K4 Hard Seltzer

Mango, Black Cherry, Huckleberry, Cucumber Melon

Lady Luck

Dark Red Ale
Brewed as an interpretation of Bordeaux wine translated into beer, this is more than just a beer to satisfy and soothe - it’s an emotional experience. Deepest ruby red and filled with a symphony of malt flavors including caramel, toffee, raisins, and currants that finish with a simple hint of roast and chocolate tones lingering like a half-remembered dream. This gentle giant, balanced with English hops, dominates all senses without destroying the palate. Sexy as hell.

Terror of Demons

Barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout
Lying dormant in rye whiskey barrels for the past year, Terror of Demons emerges from its cocoon to new life. Packed to the brim with the dark chocolate, dried fruit, cocoa and roasty character indicative of the style, then wrapped in a boozy velvet blanket of barrel goodness full of vanilla and caramel, this brew is an exquisite treasure worth seeking. Take heart, have hope, and let the Terror of Demons join your life's beautiful adventure!

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.
