BEER LIST

Cask

Cask ales are a thing of beauty and one of life’s great pleasures. It is a traditional British way of making and serving beer. It is served around 53°F and is less carbonated. The flavors are more forward. We change our cask offering very regularly.

 

Decadent Brown Ale      $5/Pint

This beer has a complex layering of flavors. From the malt side there are rich notes of chocolate, berry, toast, biscuits, and toffee. It is quite hoppy for a brown ale with a spicy, earthy and even fruity hop character.

Light and Easy

Golden Number Ale      $5/pint
Golden ales are a delicate balance of malt and hops. To achieve this perfect balance, we based the ratio of malt and hops upon the actual golden number, the Fibonacci Sequence, or Phi as the Greeks knew it. This number’s pervasive appearance throughout nature creates a sense of balance, harmony and beauty in art, architecture, composition, space – and now beer! Some believe this number is a universal constant of design, the signature of God. (Some believe it is a perfect ratio of malt and hops.)  And for those of you playing along at home, the actual number is 1.6180339887…

Venus         $5/pint

Be careful. This beer is named after the Goddess of Love for a reason. It is rumored to have powerful effects on those who dare to imbibe! It is a Belgian white beer and brewed with orange peel and coriander as well as wheat, barley and a touch of oats. So try a pint and turn your lovelight on!

Watermelon Wheat       $6/pint

We somehow managed to fit 500 lbs of fresh, local, organic watermelons into this American Wheat beer. It is very refreshing. The American Wheat is not the same as a hefeweizen being that they use a different yeast strain. Therefore, it does not have a banana/clove character.

Haiku Trippel     $9.95/13.3 oz Schwenker

Trippels are one of the most beautiful, wonderful beers ever brewed by man. There is just something majestic about them. No simple

beer description could capture that. So I had to write a haiku for the description.

golden gift from God

sweet, honeysuckle, spice, fruit

pour me another!

Juicy Belgian Golden     $5/Schwenker

A lighter bodied beer with a beautiful gold color. Although not bitter at all, it is full of tropical fruit, melon and white wine like flavors and aromas.

Freudian Slip Vienna Lager       $5/Pint

Subconsciously you desire this beer.   This beautiful, stunning lager is nice to look at in its tall, thin, shapely glass. It has a light amber color, like a strawberry blonde. It has a firm, supple, creamy head. It is smooth, but with great body. It’s malty, sweet aroma lingers like a lover’s scent on a pillow. It will leave you wanting, desiring more. (How’s that for some Freudian Slips?) But seriously, it is brewed with German malted barley, European noble hops and lagered for two months. ENJOY!

Raspberry Wit         $5.50/Schwenker

What a beautiful color. We loaded our Belgian-style wit with A LOT of raspberries. You will want to drink more than one of these.

Hoppy and Refreshing

Best of Both Worlds IPA       $6.50/Pint

Can’t decide if you want an old school West Coast IPA or a new tropical IPA? Well, no need to worry. We hopped this one in the kettle with some typical West Coast hops – Cascade, Simcoe, Amarillo, Falconers and Columbus. These have flavors of pine, citrus, grapefruit and orange. Then we dry hopped it in the fermentation tank with newer Citra and Huel Melon hops. These have beautiful aromas of tropical fruits, mango, papaya, pineapple, ripe honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and strawberry. It’s the Hannah Montana of IPAs!

 

Late 90’s IPA     $6.50/pint

This one will take you back when IPA’s hit their stride in the USA. Simcoe and Cascade hops were the thing and before tropical fruity hops were a big deal . This one is big with citrus and pine and we added a touch of Nelson hops for a little extra something something.

 

Guava Mango Milkshake IPA      $6.50/pint
OoLala, lookkee here at what we just did. We added fresh mango and guava, real vanilla bean and a bit of lactose sugar to our IPA. Yes, it’s tasty.

 

Mango & Passionfruit Mikshake IPA      $6.50/pint
OoLala, lookkee here at what we just did. We added fresh mango and passion fruit, real vanilla bean and a bit of lactose sugar to our IPA. Yes, it’s tasty.

 

Tom Brady Avenue NE IPA       $6.50/Pint

New England IPAs are all the rage. Cloudy, smooth and with loads of tropical fruity hop aromas and flavors. This one is a nod to the Golden Boy of New England and the street on the next block. We brewed ours with all English barley and a good bit of oats. All of the hops went into the whirlpool – which means that it has a BIG aroma with very little bitterness. We added loads and loads of Citra, Nelson, Equinox, El Dorado, Huell Melon and Mandarina - and then even more Citra – then we dry hopped it three times with Citra, Huell Melon and more Nelson.    

 

 

 

 

Fuller-Bodied Big Beers

 

Decadent Brown Ale      $5/Pint

This beer has a complex layering of flavors. From the malt side there are rich notes of chocolate, berry, toast, biscuits, and toffee. It is quite hoppy for a brown ale with a spicy, earthy and even fruity hop character.

If Wine Was Good Enough to be a Beer Saison…Cabernet Aged   Vintage 5/12/16                $9.95/13.3 oz schwenker

Saisons are a Belgian farmhouse style of beer from the French speaking part of Belgium. They use a unique yeast strain that behaves differently than other beer yeasts and produces an incredible array of flavors – tropical fruit, stone fruit, exotic spices and a wonderful earthiness. This yeast behaves more like a wine yeast and historically perhaps originated from a winery. To explore this connection to wine we brewed a big saison and aged some in a red wine barrel. The bit of age in our Cellar has helped deepen the complexity even further.

Nitro

Nitro Psychopomp aged in ASW Single Malt barrel     Vintage 11.21.17         $9.95/Schwenker

Our Brewmaster thinks this is the best beer we have ever made. We should stop there. But we won’t. First of all, a ‘Psychopomp’ is a creature, spirit or angel found in most religions that escorts and guides newly deceased souls to the afterlife. And that’s exactly what this beer will feel like. It’s a mahogany brown color with wonderful layers of malt. We smoked just a touch of malt over a mix of cherry wood and pecan wood – but the smokiness is so very subtle. The flavors imparted by the ASW Single Malt spirit barrel are nothing short of otherworldly. The nitrogen adds a heavenly creaminess and softness.

Nitro Trippel         Vintage 2.9.16       $9.95/13.3 oz schwenker

Trippels are one of the most beautiful, wonderful beers ever brewed by man. There is just something majestic about them. Gold in color, with slightly fruity aromas – and deceptively strong. Many a bad/good decision has been made after drinking Trippel. This one has aged 2.25 years in our Cellar and a deep honey and honeysuckle character has emerged. The Nitro adds a creamy smoothness to the beer.

Gluten Free!

Elmers Gluten Free     $5/Pint

A light and refreshing buckwheat and sorghum based beer. Fairly hoppy with a citrus nose. Best gluten free beer you will ever taste.

 

Sours
