SPICED BROWN ALE
Fresh Baked is our winter ale brewed with chocolate malt, toasted English brown malt, and oats that have been oven toasted right at our brewery. The beer is then finished with subtle touches of cinnamon and vanilla, yielding a toasty, lightly sweet, lightly spiced brown ale reminiscent of fresh baked oatmeal cookies. Yum!

JAlapeno cream ale
This beer was brewed to celebrate our 400th batch brewed. This is a crisp, well-balanced and refreshing cream ale, with slight sweetness from the flaked corn used in the mash and subtle heat and spicy tanginess in the finish from the use of jalapeno peppers in the fermenter. The beer kind of taste like nachos in a glass!

The final obstacle in constructing the Erie Canal was leveling a 7 mile section of the canal 40 feet deep - by hand - between Lockport and Lake Erie. Our Deep Cut Double IPA is our most ambitious beer to date. It's layered with citrus, tropical punch, and wild berry hop flavor, with moderate bitterness and a dry finish. This beer won a silver medal in the Strong IPA category at the TAP NY craft beer festival in 2016.
