Our Beers

Populuxe Brewing features up to nine, unique and tasty beers at any time. We rotate our beers on a regular basis, so we can’t guarantee that specific brews will be on tap when you visit us. We always try to have something malty, hoppy, dark and light on tap at all times - so that whatever your preferred style, we have something for you to enjoy.
