how we brew
We specialize in classic German lagers and English real ales.
McFleshman’s is family owned and operated. We built the brewery and taproom ourselves, with the help of several local trades. We brew our beer onsite in our Czech Republic built brew house and serve it in our British-style taproom year round and German-style Beergarden during the warmer months. Our specialties are British Ales and German Lagers.
Our copper brewing system was built in the Czech Republic, and is perfectly suited for making European lagers. It is capable of decoction brewing, by which grain is cooked in the kettle, yielding a fresh ‘breadiness.’
German Lagers are made with a special yeast that ferments in colder temperatures and leaves the beer exquisitely clean and clear. Our flagship style is the Pirate’s Cove Munich Helles, but we offer many varieties throughout the year.
Our English real ales are all cask conditioned adhering CAMRA (the UK’s Campaign for Real Ale) using dry hops, natural carbonation and serving via one of four beautiful beer engines. This method yields a creamy mouthfeel and the natural carbonation makes each cask (or firkin) an evolving experience.
Our sour ales have been aging for 2+ years in wine barrels at Appleton Beer Factory, located across the alley. This partnership is one reason we chose to locate McF where we did!
