They indicate that Lakeside will have 24 beers on tap and 2 of those beers will be their own beers with plans for a year-round ale along with a rotating seasonal beer.

From JL Beers South Fargo:

LakefrontHelp us welcome this Milwaukee brewery to the neighborhood! Join us March 5th at 5:00pm, as we pour four of Lakefront’s finest brews. On tap will be Fixed Gear Red Ale, IPA, Beerline, and IBA. Cheers!

Fixed Gear Red Ale – A bold American Red Ale that pours a glaring crimson tone with a rocky white head and has a brilliant floral-citrus aroma, thanks to an aggressive dry hopping.

IPA – The aroma of this delicious IPA is dominated by hops that are reminiscent of ruby red grapefruit. A delicious blend of malts makes it crisp and smooth.

IBA – Add crystal and dark-roasted malts to the best features of an IPA, and you get this, an India Black Ale with a sharp, piney flavor, floral aroma and long-lasting hoppy finish.

Beerline – With aromas of strawberry, grapefruit and papaya, the sweetness of this Barleywine-style Ale is balanced by Bravo hops, and it finishes with a slightly spicy alcohol warmth.
