Beer

At Cognition Brewing Company we plan to have many different styles of beer available and there will always be something new on tap to enjoy. We will have a number of regularly rotating beers as well as some seasonal releases. We will also have some very limited release beers that will be featured very briefly in the pub and mostly at beer festivals.

We will have different tiers of beer on our menu. We do this because not all beers should be priced the same. Like food, beer is a product that reflects the ingredients used. If we are serving a beer that uses twice the amount of grain and hops than that of a tier 1 beer then that will be reflected in the cost or serving size of the beer. Also, a lot of the beers that are expensive to produce usually have a lot more alcohol in them. By regulating serving sizes on these types of beers we feel that we are doing our job to take care of the well-being of our customers. It is easy to over-indulge if you are drinking beers with a high ABV. We will also have a tier 3 for very special beers that have extra costs associate to them like the purchase of oak barrels that we may age these beers in for added flavor and complexity. These beers will be served in small snifter glasses and may be unavailable for purchase in growlers.

Here are some of the beers that we will be serving at Cognition. NOTE: We will always be adding new beers to our repertoire so this list of a starting point for what is to become our beer menu.

Festbier

We brewed this beer in anticipation for the fall season. It is a malty German-style lager that tastes great when the days start to cool off a bit. This will be a regular seasonal release for us.

Maplais Ómra

Maplais Ómra is an amber ale brewed with maple sap instead of water. Brewed with two different caramel malts to lend some sweet character and body and as well as Magnum, Centennial and East Kent Golding hops to bring some balance. This beer has a complex flavor profile starting with an English hop character and giving way to flavors of maple, toasted bread and caramel. Small batch offering so enjoy it while it lasts. This beer was a collaboration with the Marquette Homebrewers Club. Sean Rooney provided the sap for this offering.

Tricephalic Head Tripel

This is our Belgian-Style Tripel brewed with Pilsner malt and German hops. This is the same yeast strain as the Gnome Wrecker so you may notice a familiar fermentation characteristic in the flavor profile. This beer is a project in the works and we plan to brew this one several times with different yeast varieties for the sake of experimentation. Be sure to give us some feedback and let us know what you think.
