Welcome to The Beer Is Good!


Tap Lists in and around South Bend

For your drinking pleasure, below are a handful of tap lists I was able to put together. I’m missing lists from Chubby Trout, Fat Tomato, Brothers, O’Rourke’s, Fiddler’s Hearth, LaSalle Grill, Bleachers and anywhere else fine beer is sold. Tap Lists sent to [email protected] would be greatly appreciated!

The Mark Dine and Tap (South Bend, IN)
St. Bernardus Abt 12
Quadrupel. Water, pumped up from a depth of 150 meters is the basis of all St. Bernardus beers. This water is not only the purest but has also a historical background. Scientists have proved that the water that is pumped up now, is originating from rainfall from the time of Jeanne d’Arc. A dark ivory colored beer with a high fermentation. The show piece of the brewery. Village of Watou in West Flanders, Belgium. (10.5% abv) .25 L $9 or .5 L $16
Great Divide Old Ruffian
Barley wine ale. Seemingly mellow at the start with subtle fruit aromas and complex caramel sweetness, it quickly becomes aggressive with its bold hop flavors and huge hop bitterness. Ultimately, the big body, succulent sweetness and massive hop character come together to work wonders on your palate. Denver, Colorado. (10.2% abv) 12 oz. $7
Southern Tier Oaked Unearthly IPA
Imperial IPA. Unearthly IPA aged with oak for a harmonious fusion of rich malts, grassy hops and savory oak. Lakewood, New York. (9.5% abv) .3 L $8
Kasteel Tripel
Abbey Tripel. A golden craft-beer, brilliant, topfermented, refermented in the keg. An exceptional blend of malts and quality hops, an elegant nose and a particularly smooth flavor. Ingelmunster, Belgium. (11% abv) 8 oz. $8
Rogue Double Deadguy
American Strong Ale. Full bodied with an amazing mid-palette richness of toffee and caramel. The hops are evident also, with just enough to keep the maltiness in check. Newport, Oregon (9.5% abv) 12 oz. $7
Reissdorf Kölsch
Kölsch. Reissdorf Kölsch is the beer speciality from Cologne with a tradition starting 1894. Pleasant, full-bodied, and uniquely light & sweet taste. Cologne, Germany. (4.8% abv) 16 oz. $7.50
Schneider Aventinus
Weizen Bock. Fresh with a hint of caramel & clove, light and delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a strong, smoothly rounded, sweet impression. Kelheim, Germany. (8.2% abv) 12 oz. $7
New Belgium Belgo
Belgian Style IPA. Authentic Trappist yeast strain and a frenzy of citrus hoppy folly. Fort Collins, Colorado. (7% abv) .47 oz. $6
Bitburger Pils
German Pilsener. Brewed with the best of ingredients in the same traditional way it has been for many, many years. Bitburg, Germany. (4.8% abv) 16 oz. $6.50
Boulder Beer Mojo IPA
Nitrogen IPA. The unique Amarillo hop adds a slight citrus flavor to an ultra-crisp dry finish. Boulder, Colorado. (7.2% abv) 16 oz. $6
Southern Tier Gemini
Unfiltered IPA. Blended Hoppe & Unearthly. Rich hops with moderate bitterness. Sweetish grapefruit and orange marmalade. Smooth, almost creamy, finish. Lakewood, New York. (10.5% abv) .3L $7
Six Point Resin
Imperial IPA. When hops are at their peak maturity, their cores swell up with a sticky, golden, resinous substance that is the flavor you crave from an IPA. Brooklyn, New York. (9.1% abv) 12 oz. $6.50
