VANILLA OATMEAL STOUT
Our winter seasonal is roasty and reminiscent of coffee from its use of roasted barley, while the addition of substantial amounts of oatmeal ensures a full-bodied brew. At packaging, we add a precise amount of vanilla, which is extracted in-house using only the finest Grade A Mexican vanilla beans.

DRY-HOPPED SOUR KOLSCH
A boat that was nearly too large for the Erie Canal was known as a "squeezer". This beer squeezes a lot of complex flavor into such an easy drinking beverage. We combine simple pilsner malt, kolsch yeast and substantial amounts of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops at the end of the boil. We then sour the beer in the kettle with lactobacillus, then add more Nelson dry hops. The result is a beer with interesting white grape aroma and flavor that remains extremely refreshing due to the clean, tart finish.
HOPS: NELSON SAUVIN

belgian-style Blonde ale
This is a light, dry and refreshing Belgian-style Blonde Ale, delicately hopped, then fermented warm over local, fresh, New York State peaches. The spiciness from the yeast melds well with the sweetness imparted by the peaches. This year's batch will be made only once and used about 1,200 pounds of peaches hand pressed by our brewers.

This IPA is brewed using classical American hops - Chinook, Cascade, and Centennial - which lend an earthy grapefruit flavor and assertive bitterness to the beer. The hops are balanced by a strong malt base, giving it a deep ruby color. We then aged the beer on cedar to help dry out the beer and add some light wood complexity. A nice, classic IPA to ease you into Autumn - enjoy!
