  Class One Rapids
British IPA - A true British India Pale ale based off of recipes from the time that ships hauled the precious brew from England all the way to India. A rich, malty body supports the Fuggle and Kent Golding hops that originally preserved the beer on its long passage. Rising River, is just the first in James River Brewing's line of IPA's, and proves to be a unique ale in today's market.
  Hatton Ale
K├Âlsch - A standard light drinking ale in many parts of Germany. This beer provides many of the characteristics that a lager does, smoothness, with an all over subtleness than blends flavors together, instead of separating them out. Highly refreshing and easy drinking, this brew received a Best in Show award in competition in 2010.
  River Runner
English Southern Bitter - An English bitter with a slightly higher APV, than the standard. Good, rich malty tones characterize this beer; while New Zealand's Green Bullet hops give it the appropriate kick without too much bite.
  Rock Island Red
Irish Wheat Ale - A balanced beer, brewed in the classic Irish style, with the exception of the addition of white wheat. Smooth and easy to drink, with a mild hop nose, this beer has proven to be a favorite of multiple test groups.
