Seasonals

The history of beer began in a seasonal environment – dark, heavy beers through the winter months transitioning to lighter spring ales and lagers, floral, refreshing beers in summer and the return of the maltier side in fall. We are intensely proud to carry on those traditions in our Seasonal program. We crib from the greatest traditions in brewing to produce ales and lagers thoughtfully matched to our traditional weather patterns.


Spring

ABV: 5.25%
IBU: 28
SRM: 8.0

Bastille

This beer is our ode to Spring. A malty base and subtle bitter give way to an eruption of fruit, banana and bubble gum notes in the nose and a mildly sweet palate. The Bier De Garde style shares a common history with the Belgian Saison and our version of this traditional farmhouse ale embraces that history.

Summer

ABV: 5.8%
IBU: 12

Summer Wheat

We started with a giant dose of wheat, a tiny smattering of hops and a classic American Hefeweizen yeast – to match those mild notes we brought along a huge helping of citrus peel and coriander. What comes through the dense, pillowy head is a light, sweet, sessional wheat beer with a mild maltiness, a short bitter and a delightful hint of orange, spice, clove and banana to round out the beer.

Fall

ABV: 5.2%
IBU: 28
SRM: 13

Oktoberfest

Our Oktoberfest is a traditional German Marzen Lager – cold-conditioned for 6 weeks to create a smooth, drinkable festival beer. A hefty load of caramel malt notes lead to a lingering, sweet finish in the classic Marzen style while the tiniest touch of sulfur at the end brings the whole package together and ensures a beer that will pair well with sausages of any stripe.

Winter

ABV: 7.3%
IBU: 45
SRM: 22.5

Tannenbaum Christmas Ale

We layered an insane dose of ginger with a combination of other spices to build a deep, entrancing spicy nose that just goes and goes and goes. Below that, we crafted a deep, caramel flavored malt note and backed it up with just enough hop bitterness and aroma to bring the whole beer together. It plants itself solidly in the Winter Warmer territory by topping out 7.3% ABV but it stays a remarkably drinkable beer even at that size.
