Imperial Irish Red Ale
Description: An easy-drinking pint, often with subtle flavors. Slightly malty in the balance sometimes with an initial soft toffee/caramel sweetness, a slightly grainy-biscuity palate, and a touch of roasted dryness in the finish. Some versions can emphasize the caramel and sweetness more, while others will favor the grainy palate and roasted dryness.
Description: A clean, well-attenuated, flavorful American “lawnmower” beer. Easily drinkable and refreshing, with more character than typical American lagers.
Description: Strong well balanced ale brewed with all German grains and Noble hops. The German grains bring a beautiful Carmel color along with a malty toastiness. Balanced with a pleasantly, mild spicy flavor from the Noble hops. We know the Germans never made an IPA but if they did this would be it.
Description: A dark German ale that balances roasted yet smooth malt flavors with moderate hop bitterness. The lighter body, dryness, and lack of a harsh, burnt, or heavy aftertaste helps make this beer quite drinkable.
Chocolate Hazelnut Stout
Description: A sweet, roasted, dark stout full bodied with a hint of chocolate, finished with a touch of Hazelnut flavors and aromas.
American Brown Ale
Description: A malty beer frequently with chocolate and caramel flavors. The hop flavor and aroma complements and enhances the malt rather than clashing with it. Finished with Roasted Hazelnuts and Almonds, touched with Oak Chips.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter
Description: A substantial, malty dark beer with a complex and flavorful dark malt character. Major flavor of Chocolate and Peanut giving the beer a taste that resembles a Reese Butter Peanut Cup.
Description: A light-bodied, highly-attenuated, gold-colored, bottom-fermented bitter German beer showing excellent head retention and an elegant, floral hop aroma. Crisp, clean, and refreshing, showcases the finest quality German malt and hops.
Description: An amber to copper, spiced beer that often has a moderately rich body and slightly warming finish suggesting a good accompaniment for the cool fall season. Finishing flavors of pumpkin spice, bourbon and cinnamon.
Description: A beer with the dryness, hop-forward balance, and flavor characteristics of an American IPA, only darker in color – but without strongly roasted or burnt flavors. The flavor of darker malts is gentle and supportive, not a major flavor component. Drinkability is a key characteristic.
Description: A deep reddish-copper, moderately
strong, malty, complex Trappist ale with rich malty flavors,
dark or dried fruit esters, and light alcohol blended together in
a malty presentation that still finishes fairly dry.
Belgian Blonde Ale
Description: A moderate-strength golden ale that has a subtle fruity-spicy Belgian yeast complexity, slightly malty-sweet flavor, and dry finish.
A collabo we did with Hillside Brewery
Description: : Characterized by depth, richness and complexity typical of darker Munich malts with the accompanying Maillard products. Deeply bready-toasty, often with chocolate-like flavors in the freshest examples, but never harsh, roasty, or astringent; a decidedly malt-balanced beer, yet still easily drinkable.
Description: Easy-drinking, approachable, American craft beer with interesting fruit, hop, and character malt notes. Well-balanced and clean, a refreshing pint without aggressive flavors. Finished with a touch of Watermelon.
Description: A clean, crisp, delicately-balanced beer usually with a very subtle fruit and hop character. Subdued maltiness throughout leads into a pleasantly well-attenuated and refreshing finish. Freshness makes a huge difference with this beer, as the delicate character can fade quickly with age. Brilliant clarity is characteristic.
New England Cider
Description: A flavorful cider with robust apple character, strong alcohol, and derivative flavors from sugar additives; traditionally dry.
Imperial Red IPA
Description: Hoppy, bitter, and moderately strong like an American IPA, but with some caramel, toffee, and/or dark fruit malt character. Retaining the dryish finish and lean body that makes IPAs so drinkable, a Red IPA is a little more flavorful and malty than an American IPA without being sweet or heavy.
Russian Imperial Stout
Description: An intensely-flavored, big, dark ale with a wide range of flavor balances and regional interpretations. Roasty-burnt malt with deep dark or dried fruit flavors, and a warming, bittersweet finish. Despite the intense flavors, the components need to meld together to create a complex, harmonious beer, not a hot mess.
A Collabo with Woodworkers Bruhaus
Description: An elegant, malty German amber lager with a clean, rich, toasty and bready malt flavor, restrained bitterness, and a dry finish that encourages another drink. The overall malt impression is soft, elegant, and complex, with a rich aftertaste that is never cloying or heavy.
Description: Easy-drinking, approachable, Light sweet malty aroma with interesting fruit, hop, and character malt notes. Well-balanced and clean, a refreshing pint without aggressive flavors. Brewed with strawberries and mint
Description: A pale, refreshing, highly-attenuated, moderately-bitter, moderate-strength Belgian ale with a very dry finish. Quite aromatic, with fruity, spicy, and hoppy characteristics with a touch of lemongrass
Description: An average-strength to moderately strong British bitter ale. Hop aroma moderately-high to moderately-low, typically with a floral, earthy, resiny, and/or fruity character. Light amber to deep copper color. The malt profile is typically bready, biscuity, nutty, or lightly toasty, and optionally has a moderately low to moderate caramel or toffee flavor. Medium-dry to dry finish.
Smoked Bacon Porter
Description: A smoke-enhanced beer showing good balance between the smoke and beer character, while remaining pleasant to drink. Balance in the use of smoke, hops and malt character is exhibited by the better examples. Touched with a hint of Bacon.
Description: A refreshing, elegant, tasty, moderate strength wheat-based ale. Pleasant malty-sweet grain flavor (often with a honey and/or vanilla character) and a zesty, orange-citrusy fruitiness. Refreshingly crisp with a dry, often tart, finish.
Description: An American adaptation of English Porter using American ingredients, including adjuncts. Grainy base malt flavor, with low levels of chocolate or burnt black malt notes, along with low levels of caramel, biscuit, licorice, and toast notes. Balance is typically even between malt and hops, with a moderate dry finish. Smoother and less hoppy-bitter than a (modern) American Porter, less caramelly than an English Porter with more of an adjunct/lager character.
Dry Irish Stout
Description: A black beer with a pronounced roasted flavor, often similar to coffee. The balance can range from fairly even to quite bitter, with the more balanced versions having a little malty sweetness and the bitter versions being quite dry. The roasted flavor can be dry and coffee-like to somewhat chocolaty.
