American Brown Porter brewed with Molasses and Smoked Sea Salt.
How do you design a dark beer to be light yet still interesting? We think we achieved it with this beer. We brewed this brown porter with a plethora of specialty malt but achieved a lighter body and flavor than most porters. Late additions of Molasses and Smoked Sea Salt added some complex flavors and an elevated fermentation temperature provided some fruit forward notes that we think work well together.

German-Style Berliner-Weisse Brewed With Kiwi, Pineapple and Mango
We reached batch 50! For this momentous occasion we decided to brew up something funky. We took a traditional German-Style Berliner-Weisse and added a few twists. This was beer was sour-mashed for over 48 hours to achieve a nice tart character. The hop addition of cascade brings a nice floral character to the beer. We then fermented the batch on a blend of Mango, Pineapple and Kiwi purée for a nice tropical character that we feel complements the tartness.

Life in Technicolor: Key Lime - 5.1% ABV
American Pale Ale Brewed with Key Lime Zest and Juice & Milk Sugar
This is round two of our Life in Technicolor series, where we explore the relationship between hop-forward beers and various citrus fruit. This beer was designed to carry the hops and citrus with strong base of barley and oats as well as a large addition of lactose or milk sugar which provides and round, full and smooth mouthfeel. We brewed this beer with a ridiculous amount of Key Lime zest and juice and an array of citrus forward hops. It's light and tropical and a welcome reprieve from this winter that doesn't seem to want to end. It's almost spring right?

Belgian-Style Grisette Brewed with VT Raw Wheat, VT Grown Hops & Hay
Bringing our traditional brewing techniques another step forward we partnered with Rogers Farmstead in Berlin, VT to brew this classic Belgian-Style Grisette. Large portions of raw wheat and an entire bale of hay were added to the mash to give this beer a rustic and farm-like quality. We then open-fermented this beer at 90° with our expressive house saison culture and let it free rise to bring out more of a lemon, pepper and clove flavor and aroma. We think this is a great step towards achieving the rustic yet refined quality we want in our Saisons. Enjoy!

American Rye Brown Ale Brewed With 100% Centennial Hops
We brewed this American Brown Ale to lean heavy on Rye malt and Centennial Hops. The beer exhibits spicy and rustic character with some flowery and citrusy undertones. It's brewed to be lighter on the body and hoppier than its cousin the English Brown Ale. Hop meets malt in a perfect balance and presents itself in a unique format. We hope you like it as much as we do.

German-Style Gose Brewed With Himalayan Pink Sea Salt & Local Red Beets
In our ever-expanding desire to explore the boundaries of what beer can be we present you with our unique interpretation of a classic style, Gose. Brewed with a large amount of wheat we then sour-mashed this beer for over 48 hours to bring on a slight tartness. Over 5 lbs/BBL of local beets from Dog River Farm in Berlin were shredded and added to the mash for sugar, flavor and color additions. While a small addition of Himalayan Pink Sea Salt at the end of the boil round out this beer and leaves you wanting to take sip after sip. Think Pink.

We hopped this with some of our favorite varieties to give this beer notes of pineapple, melon, citrus and pine. We like this beer a lot and we think you will too.

Farmhouse IPA Brewed W/ Spelt Malt & Citra Hops
This is the second beer in our exploration of farmhouse-style hop forward beers. We brewed this beer with a large portion of spelt malt as well as flaked wheat for a rustic, creamy mouthfeel. To accentuate the hops and help dry out the beer we fermented this with out house saison yeast very warm. We then hopped and then dry-hopped this heavily with Citra hops. It's tropical, citrusy and dry and we love it.

Belgian-Style Grisette Brewed W/ Buckwheat & Local Hops
We fell in love with this style of beer early on. Originally brewed to below-alcohol easy drinking beer for the mine workers in the Wallonian region of Belgium. Heavy with both wheat malts and raw buckwheat this beer has a full mouth feel but has a dry finish because of our unique yeast strain. Lots of late hopping and an warm fermentation throw notes of flowers and stone fruit into the mix as well. We love this beer.

Dry-Hopped Sour-Mashed Berliner-Weisse Brewed w/ Clementine Zest and Juice
How do you make a beer taste like a mimosa? I think we accomplished it. We brewed this beer with large portions of Wheat and a touch of Pilsner malt. The beer was sour mashed for over 48 hours to drop our PH to 3.6. In the whirlpool we added over 3 lbs of Clementine zest and juice as well as citrus forward hops. Post-Fermentation we dry-hopped with over 2 lbs per bbl of Zythos to bring in pineapple and orange flavor to the mix. We hope you like this beer as much as we do.

American Farmhouse Wheat IPA
Think of this as a Saison meets an American IPA. The base of this beer was built to carry the hops with Maris Otter and Wheat giving a strong foundation we then hop this largely with Amarillo and Columbus. Lots of late addition hops accentuate citrus and fruit flavors while whirlpool additions of crushed coriander and orange peel help lay the base for our house yeast. We fermented this dry with our Saison yeast to help coax out more orange and tropical flavors.

American Pale Ale With Oats
We brewed this beer to be fluffy, light and full of flavor. Brewed with over 65% of the malt bill consisting of Oats, this beer provides a cloudy and full body to hold up in such a small beer. We bittered this beer with Chinook and then hit it with heavy doses of Equinox throughout the boil and post-fermentation for aromas of Dank Herbs and Citrus Pith. This beer is the epitome of new styles, new techniques and new ingredients all coming together.

American Pale Ale
We brewed this beer to be a more robust pale ale. Munich and Crystal 40 malts give this beer a darker more warming flavor, while Flaked Oats give a silky larger mouthfeel to the beer. Hopped aggressively but thoughtfully with Columbus and Falconers Flight this beer exhibits traits of Fruity Pebbles, Pine and Citrus Rind. We hope you get to have a pint or three.

Kettle-Soured Farmhouse Ale Brewed With Hibiscus & Wild Maine Beach Roses
This beer was a concept in our mind for quite some time. We brewed this to be very similar to a dry Rosé Wine. Based off of a traditional German Berliner-Weisse, we create a strong body with equal parts wheat and pilsner malt. This beer was then kettle-soured for 48 hours along with whole hibiscus flowers and foraged wild Maine beach rose petals and hips. We fermented this beer with our expressive Saison yeast to dry it out and accentuate the fruitiness of the flowers.
Pilsner Malt, Wheat Malt
Back Forty - 4.6% ABV
This is a concept beer for us. How do you make a classic American Porter that doesn't weigh you down and allows you to drink more than a couple? Brewed to be light but still full on flavor, we brewed this beer with a large variety of specialty roasted malts and a large portion of Rye Malt for a slight spicy and dryfinish. Toasted chocolate and notes of baking spaces will intermingle in your glass.

Belgian-Style Saison/Farmhouse Ale
This is our version of a classic Belgian Saison / Farmhouse Ale. We brewed this beer to be a simple yet elegant, yeast driven beer. This is our nod to the classic farmhouse ales of the Wallonian region of Belgium. Fermented with our house yeast, this beer throws heavy citrus and peach aromas, with a touch of funkiness that is to be expected from this style. This is looking like it will become one of our year round offerings, and we love it.

American Black Ale
This is our American Black Ale. Brewed for the Black Ale Project, this beer is as hoppy as it is dark. We brewed this beer with a solid malt bill including de-bittered black malt and chocolate malt. The hopping on this was intense with heavy additions of Chinook, Centennial, and Amarillo. We find it to be the perfect halfway point between an American IPA and a Robust Porter.

Life In Technicolor: Valencia Orange - 6.8% ABV
American IPA Brewed With Citrus
This is the first in a rotating series. We brewed this American IPA with a touch of wheat for a hazy, grainy and soft mouthfeel, then we hopped it heavily with Citra and Amarillo. Over 1 lb. of Valencia orange zest and juice was added per barrel to this beer to help accentuate the citrus notes from the hoping.

Dry-Hopped American Table Sour
48 hours in the kettle produces a tart and mouth-puckering flavor. The grain bill is reminiscent of a classic German Berliner-Weisse with heavy wheat. We hopped this to a low bitterness with a newer varietal called Caliente. It's then dry-hopped lightly with Citra, Cascade and Lemon Drop hops to bring some tropical flavors into the mix.

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER - 6.8% ABV
Our first American IPA! We choose to go a different route with is one. The hopping regiment is unique as we don't add hops until the end of the boil. A theoretical 5 IBUs, what this beer lacks in bitterness it makes up for in flavor and aroma. A simple malt bill of Vienna, Wheat and 2-row with a touch of oats allows the hops to come through. Hopped heavily with Centennial, Columbus and Citra.
