IPA/Hoppy

Crank It Hop- Simcoe/Ekuanot Hopped IPA- 6% ABV, 50 IBU- 16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

Each batch of Crank It Hop features different hops. This batch features one of our favorite combinations. Simcoe is a classic American hop with a complex blend of citrus, stone fruit, and pine. Ekuanot is a newer hop with intense tropical and citrus fruit character and notes of melon, berry, and a bit of pine.

Crank It Dank- West Coast Style IPA- 7% ABV, 60 IBU16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

West Coast IPAs are typically brewed to showcase hops with very little malt character. Our version is brewed with a very simple malt bill of Pale and Pilsner malt and a bit of sugar to dry the beer out. It is aggressively hopped with Ekuanot, Citra and Mosaic. These are newer hop varieties that are bred to have a strong, pungent aroma and flavor often described as “dank”.

Crank It Hype- New England Style IPA- 7% ABV, 25 IBU- 16 oz $7.5, 5 oz $3.5

Fuller in body and less bitter than a traditional IPA but our version stops short of being sweet like a lot of examples, keeping the beer more drinkable. 4+ pounds per barrel of hops are used, all of which are added in the whirlpool and as dry hops. This extracts less bitterness from the hops, and gives the beer a “juicy” hop character and the trademark “hazy” appearance.

Prediction?…Pain!- Imperial IPA- 8.5% ABV, 85 IBU- 12 oz $7.5, 5 oz $3.5

More balanced than a lot of IIPAs with a focus more on flavor and aroma hops than bitterness. Hopped with Ekuanot, Simcoe and Mosaic. These hops create a complex blend of flavors including citrus, tropical fruit, berry, passion fruit, peach, and pine.

Grapefruit Pain!- Imperial Grapefruit IPA- 8.5% ABV, 85 IBU- 12 oz $8, 5 oz $4

Prediction?…Pain!, Imperial IPA, with real Grapefruit juice and zest added to the fermenter. Adding the fruit to the fermenter allows the yeast to ferment the simple sugars keeping the beer from becoming sweet. The grapefruit flavor compliments the hop character of the beer and adds a refreshing tartness on the finish.

Light

Buzz Lite Beer- Honey Golden Ale- 5.5% ABV, 13 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

Very drinkable and refreshing but still full flavored. This beer is brewed with local Honey from Smith-Talbot Apiaries. The honey flavor and sweetness are accentuated by the addition of Honey Malt and Flaked Corn.

Buzz Mule- Ginger/Citrus Honey Ale- 5.5% ABV, 13 IBU- 16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

Buzz Lite Beer, Honey Ale, with real Lemon, Lime (juice and zest), and fresh Ginger added. 1 keg only

Czech Your Head- Pilsner- 5.2% ABV, 29 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

Our take on a traditional Czech Pilsner is extremely well balanced with a clean, bready malt character from Pilsner and a bit of Vienna malt and just enough hop presence to give the beer a crisp, dry finish. Czech Saaz hops provide the floral, slightly spicy hop flavor and aroma.

Blurry Blond- Belgian Blond Ale- 6% ABV, 14 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

Light and drinkable Belgian style ale brewed with pilsner and a bit of wheat malt. The fruitiness and hint of spice is provided by the Belgian yeast.

Dark

Admiral Ackbeer- It’s A Trapp-ist! Style Dubbel- 7% ABV, 16 IBU- 16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

A complex, yet easy drinking, Belgian Ale. Belgian yeast provides a fruitiness with notes of citrus, cherry and stone fruits and a bit of spice on the finish. A bit of dark crystal malt and dark Belgian Candi Syrup give the beer its rich, ruby color and provide notes of toffee, raisin and plumb.

Haulin’ Oats- Oatmeal Stout- 5.6% ABV, 17 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

Brewed with flaked oats and oat malt for a silky smooth mouth feel and a hint of nutty oatmeal flavor. A blend of roasted malts and crystal mats provide the chocolate, coffee and caramel flavors.

Udderly Black- Milk Stout- 5.3% ABV, 20 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

A blend of roasted malts give the beer its rich chocolate and coffee character. The body and sweetness are provided by crystal malts and the addition of Lactose (Milk Sugar) which is not fermented by beer yeast. Served on nitro, Not available in crowlers.

Savage Oak (Sour/Wild) More info on Savage Oak

Barrel Aged Cherry Gold- Lambic Inspired Sour Golden Ale- 7.5% ABV- 11 oz $8.5, 5 oz $4.5

This is our Cherry Gold with additional aging in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. This beer was aged for a full year in one of our oak Foeders, after Foeder aging it was aged with real, tart Cherry juice in a fermenter, allowing the simple sugars to ferment. The beer was then aged for an additional year in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. All of this combines to create an incredibly complex beer that is sour up front with notes of pie cherry, red wine, oak, stone fruits and a mild funk.

Pinot Noir Barrel Aged Blanc- Foeder/Barrel Aged Brett Berliner Weisse- 4.5% ABV 11 oz $7, 5 oz $3.5

Our take on the classic, German style, sour, wheat beer is co-fermented with Lactobacillus bacteria and a blend of fruit forward Brettanomyces and then aged in an Oak Foeder. The result is a more complex version of the style with a smooth but noticeable sourness and notes of tropical and stone fruit, citrus, oak, and a mild funk. After Foeder aging, this version has an additional aging in Pinot Noir barrels with a bit of Pinot Noir juice added. Theadditional aging adds complexity with a vinous character and notes of oak, dark fruits, and a more pronounced “funk”.
