James T. Murphy was a successful merchant, a railroad man and school board clerk; a all-around, community-driven fellow. In 1897, our dear friend JT got off the train for the last time and erected the very building Round Man Brewing Co. occupies today. Originally built as a grocery store, JT took his vision far beyond that, stocking dry goods, footwear, flour, feed, and gentleman’s furnishings. We sought to craft a beer as rich in character and boldness as a man of his stature certainly held. Our Irish Stout is lightweight, drinkable, and has enough unblemished flavor to leave you wanting just one more. A dark beer built for dark beer drinkers. Cheers, Mr. Murphy - this one is for you!
Despite the alcohol, despite the naps, despite the baths, Winston Churchill was a work horse. It is reported that at the start of his day and at the end of every phone conversation he would exclaim KBO, or "keep buggering on." The cream ale is a lighter brew with a lower ABV and tons of flavor, that despite the long hours of work will keep you buggering on.
A classic IPA that stays true to the originality of the beer style. As IPAs have grown in popularity, many have created impressive and creative brews. However, this is an IPA true to its name. The old style. No frills. Full of character and body. Great for drinking by the fire where one might catch a little smoke in the eye.
This full bodied malt beverage carries with it the strength and tenacity fitting of the Round Man name. Brewed with absolute Irish authenticity, the mysterious Red Right Hand boasts a deep red color with a crisp, refreshing, malt-forward taste. When our brewer was asked to describe the taste of this beer - after a brief and thoughtful pause - he proclaimed “It tastes like another!”
Our strongest IPA. A hophead's delight. Bitter and strong. The City of Spooner, in Washburn County, Wisconsin, was once a major hub of railroad activity in the northwestern "Indianhead Country" of the state. Spooner was at the intersection of "the Great Omaha X" of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railroad. Four original rail lines, completed by 1883, made up the "X."
Our German-Style Kolsch is light in color & malt character, accompanied by a slightly dry, crisp finish.
Notes: Light, refreshing, slightly dry, and crisp
Hops: Liberty and Saaz
Yeast: White Labs WLP 029
Story: HWY 63 German-Style Kolsch is the result of a collaboration with our great friend and musician Chad Kostner and shares a name with his song and album! Kolsch is Chad’s favorite style so adding it to our growing family of fantastic craft beers was a no brainer! Thanks Chad!
Our MEGA PINT Amber Ale is beautifully ambered and hopped in the classic style of an American Amber. Easy drinking with deep, rich colors and a pleasant, slightly bitter finish.
Notes: Classic, deep and slightly bitter
Hops: Centennial, Amarillo and Cascade
Yeast: US-05 Ale Yeast
Story: In 2022, a certain particularly famous celebrity (think drunk, goofy pirate) went through a very public and messy divorce court case during which he was accused of enjoying a “MEGA PINT” of wine.
We found this extremely humorous and, naturally, found a name for our hugely popular “Mega Pint” Amber Ale! Enjoy.
