New Beer! Draken Robust Porter

A big, malty and dark porter, Draken exudes a roasty aroma from its tan head. You’ll taste a complex and rich chocolate and caramel malt character followed by a touch of warmth and light malt sweetness. Draken has subtle flavors of raisins and dark fruits and a touch of hop bitterness to balance the flavor on the palate.

Hand-crafted beer that pushes the limits of traditional beer styles

At Kelsen Brewing, we brew beer that we like to drink and that craft beer enthusiasts are searching for.  If you don’t like full-flavored beers or beers with hop aroma that socks you in the nostrils, you probably won’t appreciate what we are brewing.  If you appreciate complex malt profiles and unique combinations of hop flavors and aromas, you might want to pick up a bottle of Kelsen and try us out.

About Us

Kelsen Brewing was started by two long-time friends, Paul and Erik, who met back in grade school.  One day in 2010, Erik and Paul
decided to brew up a batch of homebrew together.  From that point forward, the two were engrossed in the craft of making beer.
