common thread 2019

sour cranberry witbier
5.4% ABV

Common Thread is our annual statewide collaboration in support of the Wisconsin Brewer’s Guild. This Tart Cranberry Witbier had a portion of the wort brewed & soured here at Working Draft. We then shipped it out to Vintage Brewing in Sauk where it was blended into the main batch. Bright, fruity & slightly tart, this is a wonderful summer sipper!


8.0% ABV

Brewed in collaboration with our friends at St. Francis Brewing Company. Huge notes of banana & clove are complimented by German Pilsner & Wheat Malt. A slightly tart finish makes for a deceptively smooth finish.


belgian black ipa
6.3% ABV

Back from the Dead! We revived this Belgian Black IPA with our good friend & mentor, Page Buchanan from House of Brews. Roasty & slightly smoky aromas meld with stone fruit, plum & blueberry notes in this Mosaic heavy Belgian Black IPA.

close enough to perfect

American DIPA

american pale ale
5.4% ABV

Mosaic, Amarillo & Chinook hops bring notes of white grape, grapefruit & pine. English & German Malts create a sweet biscuity back drop that compliments but doesn’t overwhelm this dry & crushable American Pale Ale.

german pilsner
chapter 2
5.9% ABV

We’re chasing that authentic German Lager character using the finest German ingredients & a cold & slow lagering technique. Light, dry & crisp yet supremely complex. The beer has bready malt complexity with pleasant, light notes of sulfur. Spicy noble hops meld seamlessly with the malt base..

Ain’t Bad

vienna lager
Chapter 2
5.6% ABV

German malts & a single decoction provide notes of light caramel & breadcrust. Herbrucker hops balance the malt with a light but pleasant spicy/herbal quality. This classic German-Style Vienna Lager is a tribute to balance, full flavor & drinkability.


belgian abbey ale
5.4% ABV

Belgian Pils, Aromatic & Special B malts meld with Belgian Yeast to bring notes of bread crust, bananas foster, plum & apple in this Traditional Belgian Abbey Ale

oatmeal stout
5.4% ABV

We boosted the Dark Chocolate malt to add a touch more roasty chocolatey character. We also increased the mash temperature to leave a fuller body & more residual sweetness. This batch was also fermented with an American Ale yeast that should make the beer less fruity & allow the caramel & roasted malts to shine more.
