Slightly different spelling, but this is what I thought of.

Some recent press, mentioned first as best of the 2015 Isthmus Beer & Cheese Fest.

"New Brewery to Watch
Oliphant Brewing of Somerset, Wisconsin

This small brewery in St. Croix County just opened about five months ago. Oliphant brought four beers to the fest, all of which pushed style boundaries and created a lot of buzz on the festival floor, perhaps none more than Ant Ray Cow Pants, a spiced red ale made with red curry, ginger and kaffir lime leaves."

FINALLY made it there today. Got a flight of six beers. Blonde ale, Kolsch, Pale ale, Belgian brown ale, Fruit beer, Coffee black ale. All very solid. Really enjoyed the pale ale and coffee black ale. Enough that I got a crowler of each, which they just started doing last week. Definitely will be headed back soon and hopefully fairly often as they change up their taps pretty frequently.

Have to add on to how much I liked the coffee beer. The nose of it was the best Ive ever smelled in a coffee beer and overall in the top two or three coffee beers Ive had.

The spiced Imperial red that TT sent was really interesting - flavor was great once I wrapped my head around it and the beer was clean with great body, etc.  Good stuff!

They just recently finished this mural on the side of their building. Pretty cool. Starting to become one of my favorite breweries and im finding myself grabbing their beer pretty often when beer shopping.

On their chalkboard they draw a picture for most of their beers on tap. Love this one.  :lol:
