We usually have four different beers on tap in the tasting room.
We try new styles all the time. Here are some of the current favorites.
Look for more to come.
Weissbier 5.2% ABV
A classic, traditional, German-style wheat beer with banana and clove
flavor and aroma. Accessible, yet complex. A favorite with visitors to
the tasting room!
Vienna Ale 5.5% ABV
Brewed with 100% Vienna malt, this light, orange-hued ale is lightly hopped with Czech Saaz hops, allowing the toasty malt flavor to come forward with tastes of bread and marmalade.
ESB 5.0% ABV
Extra Special Bitter. English Maris Otter base malt and Crystal malt gather together (as you and your mates do) to create a sessionable yet complex ale that begs to be sampled again and again.
Blacques Jacques Shellacques
Black Pepper Porter 5.2% ABV
A traditional porter with roasty and dark caramel notes, but a surprise of just enough black pepper in the finish.
Czech-style Dark 6.5% ABV
A pilsner-based black beer with debittered black malt and Munich malts. Nutty, caramel, and smooth, with less body than you’d expect from a beer of this color.
The Black Snake
Black IPA 7.5% ABV
Named for a smuggling vessel on Lake Champlain in the early 1800’s, caught smuggling barrels of potash to Quebec during a trade embargo. Dark malts and piney and citrus hops combine for a ride on the dark side, sure to satisfy our fans of a different snake.
Freedom & Unity
IPA 5.9% ABV
Our mid-weight American IPA. An amber ale with some malt backbone. Some light caramel notes combine with grapefruit, light pine, and tropical American hops to create a very drinkable IPA great for any time in Vermont.
IPA and a half 7.5% ABV
It’s an IPA and a half! Not quite as strong as the double IPAs you hear so much about, but all the malt and American hops character that you’re looking for. Brewed with all English malt and all American hops, it’s a beer with some bite, but can also be used as an antivenin against pains of ordinary life.
The Currant Affaire
Black Currant Wheat Beer 5.2% ABV
A few gallons of Schatzi were set aside and fermented with an English yeast, then raspberries and currants (picked down the road from the brewery) were added during conditioning. The result is a tart and fruity ale with an exquisite light purple color. Don’t expect it to last too long – only 10 gallons are available!
Little Brown Bat
Brown Ale 4.7% ABV
A brown ale brewed to enjoy among friends. Lower alcohol volume to extend the session as you taste the light roast and caramel that keep you coming back for another gulp. A classic ale that we won’t allow to be forgotten.
