- Serving Temperature: 40-45° F
As you may have surmised, it takes a lot more than authentic British equipment to make a stellar ale. Arcadia utilizes the finest ingredients from England including malted barley and Ringwood™ Yeast, which is combined with the freshest hops from the Pacific Northwest. The combination of these elements results in some of the freshest and tastiest handcrafted ales you will ever have the pleasure of savoring.
Arcadia has earned some serious bragging rights over the years as four of their eight beers have received international recognition by the way of varied awards. Arcadia’s ESB was honored at the 1997 Traditional Beer Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland and determined to be one of the finest cask ales served at the festival. The brewery shined again at the World Beer Championships in 1998 where they were awarded a Bronze medal for their Angler’s Ale, a Silver medal for their Whitsun, and the Gold for their IPA which received the highest score ever given to an American made India Pale Ale. Guess which one our panel decided to present to you? Arcadia also has the distinction of receiving the “Best of the Great Lakes Brewery Award” and is one of the finest purveyors of cask conditioned or “Real Ales”, in the entire Midwest.
Another discerning feature of Arcadia is its restaurant and tavern that is conveniently adjacent to the brewery. An interesting feature of the restaurant is its eclectic and distinctive menu specifically focused on wood-fired cuisine, prepared exclusively in a unique oven that cooks the food at temperatures reaching 750º. This facet alone adds character to the brewery being that it is their only cooking device and was imported from Naples, Italy. Tours of the brewery are given every Saturday afternoon or by the convenience of appointment.
