Ragnarok, Baltic Porter, aged for a year in Cherry Brandy barrels with real, Cherry juice added to the barrels. The barrel aging adds notes of oak, vanilla, Brandy, and cherry. The addition of the fruit accentuates the cherry flavor.

Bourbon Barrel Aged I Must Break You- Russian Imperial Stout- 11% ABV- 12 oz $8.5, 5 oz $4.5

Our version of an old school Russian Imperial Stout that is dryer and more roasty than most Imperial Stouts today. Brewed with roasted malts, crystal malts, flaked oats, and brown sugar, for a complex blend of coffee, dark chocolate, toffee, and dark fruits that finishes smooth without being sweet. This version was aged for a year in Knob Creek Bourbon barrels for additional complexity and notes of Bourbon, vanilla, stone fruits, oak, and spice.

IPA/Hoppy

Limey Bastard- English Pale Ale- 5.4% ABV, 38 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

Also known as ESB or Bitter, English Pale Ales are much more balanced with a less assertive hop character than American Pale Ales. Our version uses English Maris Otter Pale malt, Amber malt and a bit of Crystal malt for a bready, biscuty malt character. English hops give the beer a floral/earthy hop character to balance the malt.

Dave’s Pale Ale- Citra/Galaxy Pale Ale- 5.5%ABV, 40 IBU- 16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

Brewed using a “Hop Bursting” technique where all of the hops are added towards the end of the boil and as dry hops. This gives the beer a smoother bitterness with lots of hop aroma and flavor. The hops used are Citra and Australian Galaxy. The beer is named after home brewer Dave Fetty, who has won several awards with this recipe.

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 IPA hop with notes of Apricot, Passion Fruit, and Pine. Ekuanot is a newer hop with a unique fruity character with notes of lime, melon, berries, citrus fruits and a bit of earthiness on the finish.

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.

Extra Hype- Citra/Mosaic/Simcoe Hopped Double NEIPA- 8.5% ABV, 35 IBU- 12 oz $8, 5 oz $4

This version of our New England Style IPA has Extra everything! It is stronger, with more flavor and body, and more hops! We use 5 lbs per barrel of hops in this one. This batch uses some of our favorites Citra, Mosaic, and Simcoe are all classic American hops for loads of citrus and tropical fruit with notes of berries, and fresh pine.

Crank It Dank- West Coast Style IPA- 7% ABV, 60 IBU 16 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”.

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.

Lil’ Pain- Session IPA- 4.7% ABV, 35 IBU- 16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

This version of Prediction?…Pain! Is brewed with a lot less malt to be an easy drinking quencher. We used the same hop varieties, and the same amount of aroma and dry hops as regular Pain. Yes you read that right, this beer uses the same amount of flavor/aroma hops as our Imperial IPA resulting in a huge hop aroma and flavor that will keep you coming back for more.

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.

Kaiser- Kolsch- 5.2% ABV, 16 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

Kolsch is a traditional German ale brewed at a lower temperature to create a clean beer similar to German light lagers. German Pilsner and a bit of Vienna malt provide the bready, slightly sweet malt backbone with just enough hop bitterness and flavor to balance. The yeast provides a background fruitiness and a crisp, dry finish.

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.

Frosted Wit- Belgian Wit with Vanilla- 5.5% ABV, 10 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

Belgian Witbier (White Ale) with a bit of a twist. Brewed with the traditional wheat, oats, orange peel, and coriander, but we also added Madagascar Vanilla beans to the fermenter giving the beer a complimentary vanilla character.

Dark

Sugar Shack- Maple Brown Ale- 7% ABV, 18 IBU- 16 oz $7, 5 oz $3

Brewed with real Vermont maple syrup for a nice maple note that balances well with the brown ale base beer. Munich, Crystal, and Oat malts provide some sweetness and a toasty flavor to support the maple, we also add a bit of lactose and vanilla to accentuate the maple, no maple “flavoring” or extract was used.

Ragnarok- Baltic Porter- 9% ABV, 18 IBU- 12 oz $7.5, 5 oz $3.5

Baltic Porter is a bit different than a traditional Porter, it is stronger and less roasty with more rich, toasty, malt flavor. It is also a lager which allows the Munich, Caramunich and roast malts to take the forefront and gives the beer a clean, smooth finish. Named after the Baltic term for the Apocalypse.

Plaid Piper- Scottish Ale- 5.5% ABV, 14 IBU- 16 oz $6, 5 oz $2.5

A malt forward beer that is rich and slightly sweet but still very drinkable. It is brewed with Scottish Golden Promise Malt, a little bit of crystal malt, and a touch of chocolate malt to add a hint of roast. It also uses a concentrated boil at the beginning of the wort collection to concentrate the malt flavors and create a toffee/caramel character.

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

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

Ruby- Foeder Aged Flanders Style Red Ale- 8% ABV- 11 oz $7, 5 oz $3.5

Brewed with Munich and CaraMunich malts for some sweetness and a bready, toasted malt character. The beer is then aged for over a year in an oak Foeder with our custom blend of wild yeast and bacteria for a complex blend of flavors including pie cherry, stone fruits, berries, oak and a mild, earthy funk at the end.

Peach Gold- Lambic Inspired Sour Golden Ale- 7.5% ABV- 11 oz $8, 5 oz $4

Gold is inspired by the traditional Lambics of Belgium. Brewed with wheat and flaked oats for a light malt character but still a bit of body. The beer is then aged for over a year in an oak Foeder with our custom blend of wild yeast and bacteria. The result is a complex beer with a pleasant sourness, notes of citrus, tropical, and stone fruits, and a mild, earthy funk. After Foeder aging, this version has an additional aging in stainless with real, Peach juice. Adding the juice to the fermenter allows the simple sugars to ferment, adding complexity and preventing the beer from becoming too sweet.

Watermelon Blanc- Foeder 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 stainless with real Watermelon juice. Adding the juice to the fermenter allows the simple sugars to ferment, preventing the beer from becoming too sweet.
