Rod's Cream Ale:
While most modern styles of American craft beer originated elsewhere in the world, Cream Ale was born right here at home. We’ve found a lot to like in this golden little beauty: prominent malt notes complimented by a flaked maize aroma that bubbles up through the carbonation, elegantly balanced by noble hops.
Named in honor of its creator, former Public House brewer, Rod Murray. We think this beer can be summed up in three big words: American. Golden. Original.

Hide and Seek Hefeweizen:
At Public House, we take our Hefeweizen seriously. Not only do we use traditional ingredients, but our brewers use the traditional, multi-step infusion mash method (adding time and toil to the brew day) which gives the beer the appropriate body without cloying sweetness. Pale, spicy, and fruity, our Hefeweizen is medium-bodied with a fluffy, creamy fullness that comes directly from the wheat.
Subtle flavors and aromas of banana, clove, and even bubblegum--all naturally imparted by the yeast--are balanced by slightly tart and citrusy noble hops.
Do we really need to keep going here? If you don't want one by now, you might want to check your pulse.
Malt: White Wheat, Pilsen, Crystal
Frisco 1501 Historic Lager:
Inspired by the old iron workhorses that rumbled down the Frisco Railroad, this beer is named after Frisco 1501, a steam engine that now proudly rests in Rolla, Mo. Our original 3.5-barrel R&D Brewery is located along the Frisco Railroad line and Route 66, both of which encapsulate the freedom and hard-working spirit of our country. This California Common style beer originated in San Francisco during the gold rush era.
For this copper-colored beer, we use a lager yeast and ferment it at warmer ale temperatures to yield a unique flavor and mouthfeel. It's a lightly fruity beer with firm, grainy maltiness and interesting toasty and caramel flavors. It showcases rustic traditional American hop characteristics.
Malt: Pale Ale, Caramunich, Caramel malt
Hops: Northern Brewer, Cascade
There’s no mistaking it for any other style, but we took the road less traveled on this modern American bellwether.
In a world loaded with IPAs, it's difficult to make one that stands out, but ours does for an unexpected reason. Rather than create an IPA that mimics the flavor profile of so many other IPAs out there, we spent six solid months brewing batches of beer with just a single hop in order to truly discover what each varietal lends to the flavor and aroma profiles of our beer. After carefully selecting the ones we found most interesting and delightful, we crafted a recipe that blends six of these hops in just the right amounts and in just the right order. The end result is one of the smoothest tasting IPAs we have ever had the privilege of drinking. We couldn't be more proud to present it to you.
By their very nature, IPAs are a notch above “session” territory and this heady brew is no exception. It comfortably lends itself to introspection and creative breakthroughs. Pour an Elusive IPA and do some real thinking.

Moments of revelation are rare indeed ...
Lift a glass of this dry stout to your nose and breathe in the decadent aroma of dark chocolate emanating from the creamy off-white to tan-colored head. Take a sip and feel the familiar warmth of roasted coffee that goes down smooth. Notably, we don't add either of those to this beer.
The joy of discovery is unspeakable and often can only be appreciated by one's "other" senses--a third eye perhaps. Revelation Stout isn't just allegory. It's dry--with no coffee or chocolate. Just pure malt....it's a Revelation.

Spring: Flynn's Irish Red
Flynn's Irish Red (named after Brewmaster Josh Stacy's firstborn son) is a beer that we've been brewing in our Rolla R&D Brewpub every spring since 2011. It's a style that is extremely sessionable and lends itself well to springtime in Missouri. As the ice of winter begins to thaw and the heavy coats are swapped for sweaters and jackets, the malt-forward, toasty character of our Irish Red-style ale emerges in timely fashion bearing the comfort of an old friend.

Summer: Thorn & Heat Strawberry Wheat Ale
Thorn & Heat. Time & Toil. No one ever said brewing was easy. Especially in Missouri where the summer heat is muggy and full of spite. Sun in the eyes. Heat pushing 105. The result? This buoyant, slightly tart wheat ale infused with strawberry will satisfy you on ever the most hellish of days.

Winter: Six Degrees Chocolate Porter
Six Degrees Chocolate Porter is a robust porter brewed with cocoa nibs that provide subtle dark chocolate notes on the nose to soften the roastiness of this classic English style. This malty dark ale features a lightly burnt, black
malt character with a subtle hint of sweetness in the finish. Overall, this ale leaves you with complex and flavorful roasty characters that are balanced with dark chocolate flavor.
There’s nothing more seasonal than knocking the snow off your boots, huddling up with a blanket and enjoying a beer with the majestic Missouri winter landscape in clear view. This chocolate-infused porter is just the beer for that moment. Customers will imagine themselves lighting a fire and warming up with this roasty seasonal.
