All Great Dane Beers
Dark and full-bodied, this is our interpretation of the classic English Porter style. Made with nine varieties of malt and assertively hopped, our porter is packed with flavor. Strong coffee and chocolate tones create a special brew for those advancing on the path of fine beer appreciation.
We will always have at least one, sometimes two, English cask ales available for your quaffing pleasure. These beers are tapped directly from our British Firkin casks, where they have undergone a secondary fermentation and additional hopping with whole-leaf hops. Less carbonated and slightly warmer than other beers, real ales are served through English beer engines to complete the authentic ale-drinking experience. Although the style changes, you can be sure each batch is made in strict accordance with traditional methods, using only the finest imported British malts, hops and yeast.
Made with over 60% wheat malt and imported German yeast and hops, Crop Circle Wheat is a true German wheat beer. This refreshing and somewhat spicy brew is served in the traditional manner - unfiltered and accompanied by a slice of lemon.
This one-of-a-kind red lager is the unique creation of our brewmaster. Special hop characteristics are brought out through a process called "dry-hopping", where raw hops are added directly to the lagering brew. Experience this smooth blend of slightly sweet malt flavors balanced by the full taste and aroma of the renowned Hallertau hop.
This black brew is a genuine Irish-style stout, rich with the flavor of roasted malts and topped by a dense, creamy head. Our authentic method of brewing and serving stout produces a hearty taste balanced by a wonderful velvety smoothness.
A unique marriage of imported British malts and Pacific Northwest hops creates the biggest and boldest of our regular beer offerings. Our Imperial India Pale Ale is a formidable, west-coast style India Pale Ale, loaded with the pine and citrus flavors and aromas of multiple hops from that region, all on top of a rich and warming malt base. Please approach our Imperial IPA with respect.
For those looking for a lighter beer that tastes like beer, it's a Landmark! Our brewers use only the finest malts and hops to create the cleanest and freshest taste possible. Our lightest brew goes down smooth and easy.
In true pioneer spirit we offer this brew as our translation of the British pale-ale style. The full flavor of American Cascade hops pours out at you from every angle, the result of adding hops 5 different times to the brew, including "dry-hopping". An underlying, rich malt flavor supports the crisp and floral hop bitterness to produce a thirst-quenching, flavorful brew.
Here's a toast to the "Mother of Madison," Rosaline Peck; frontierswoman and owner of Madison's first public house. Our gold lager is brewed in true European style using only the finest imported Czech Saaz hops and lagered for a minimum of thirty days. Enjoy this old-world classic as you never have before - fresh at the source!
The Great Dane Pub always offers one or more seasonal specialty beers that are available for a limited time each year.
India Pale Ale was originally brewed stronger and “hoppier” to survive the long journey to the British Colonies. Our unique version of this world class beer style offers a deep amber color and malt flavor. Our interpretation is produced with fresh whole leaf hop flowers from Pacific Northwest America.
Named for the stone upon which Scottish kings were crowned, our Scotch Ale represents a tradition of brewing excellence. You will enjoy a hint of caramel sweetness, a well-rounded flavor, and superior drinkability. Try one and see how kingly a beer can be.
As opposed to its bigger Czech cousin Peck’s Pilsner, our German Pils is a traditional German-style brau. The renowned German Hallertau Mittelfruh hop and pilsner malt produce a lighter-bodied pils that finishes crisp yet soft. So authentic and drinkable, it cries “Bring on the liters!”
Don’t let the word “bitter” scare folks off! Our ESB possesses only medium hop qualities in aroma, flavor and bitterness. The residual malt sweetness of this richly flavored, full-bodied bitter stands in perfect counterbalance. For “British pub” authenticity we used only imported English Fuggle hops. It is a tasty batch, indeed.
