Named for Matt’s daughter, this blonde ale is lightly hopped throughout the boil with Willamette hops. Not for the hop head, this ale is quite smooth with mellow malty sweetness. In the warm weather, mix in some fresh lemonade to make one excellent shandy!
Our IPA is created with a special blend of New York and Northwest hop varieties. It starts with resin, pine, rich caramel, toasted malt, and muted citrus. Underpinnings of caramel malt, tobacco, and toasted bread crust take over the palate with a lightly bitter, dry finish. 67 IBUs.
Using proprietary yeast, our German style Altbier has a spicy hop bitterness and nose that only noble hop varieties can produce. We add a dash of roasted barley and German red wheat malt to give it a nice amber haze. With the yeast as the star of the show, this beer appeals to many and is Matt’s dad’s favorite.
For this guy, early in the hop harvest we like to throw caution to the wind and wet hops. After the harvest we use only the freshest hops to conjure a slight bitterness from the Nugget hops and mellow citrus character from local Cascade hops.
Using a fun blend of dark malts, look for hints of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Carbonated on the lighter side, you will enjoy the smooth mouth feel that rolled oats supply. While good year-round, this stout is a great compliment to those long New York winters.
You will find our Brown Ale a deep amber that is moderately hopped with a slight hint of citrus and grassy notes. The light maltiness of this elixir supports the hop presentation and teases out the toasty specialty malt characteristics.
