The company’s goal is to offer their customers with delicious, true brews that were crafted through an artful and thoughtful process.

Black Beauty Cream Stout

This is the darkest Core Beer the company offers. It provides a silky sweet flavor which is the result of milk sugar being used. There are hints of coffee and chocolate flavors with slightly sweet and creamy finish. For those claiming they do not care for dark beer, Black Beauty often surprises them.

Ginger Time, ginger ale

If you’re a ginger ale fan, you won’t want to pass up on trying this. It uses fresh ginger root, along with lemons, and candied ginger, and unwashed organic cane sugar.

Riley’s Irish Red

This is by far the company’s best seller, as it was one of their two original brews that got them going. It has a deep red/copper color with an aroma of caramel. It’s a medium bodied ale which goes down smooth, clean and easy using English hops.


This American pale ale uses a rye malt for additional spice and crisp.

Bell Tower Blonde

Looking for a crisp, but light option, the Bell Tower Blonde is more of an ale version of the lager.

Station Wagon IPA

This IPA is created with a blend of Amarillo, Centennial, and Cascade hops with fresh grapefruit, picked from Gless Ranch.

Intercontinental Ballistic Mango

Using Amarillo and Nelson hops, this is a Westcoast style pale ale that gets fermented along with mango, picked from the Gless Ranch.
