Seasonals

 

VANILLA OATMEAL STOUT 

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. 

MALT: 2-ROW, FLAKED OATS, CRYSTAL, CHOCOLATE MALT, ROASTED BARLEY

HOPS: GALENA

ABV: 6.8% IBU: 29


 

Fall Black 

GERMAN-STYLE BLACK BEER

Fall Black is made with German and American malts and hops and brewed with California Common yeast. Despite it's dark color, it is surprisingly light on the palate.  It features a subtle roast character, smooth bready malts, and slightly spicy hops.

MALT: 2-ROW, MUNICH, CARAFA III, CHOCOLATE

HOPS: NORTHERN BREWER, PERLE

ABV: 5.0% IBU: 30


 

Galaxy Red

 

INDIA RED ALE

Our spring seasonal, Galaxy Red is a super juicy India Red Ale loaded with late kettle and dry hop additions of tropical Galaxy Hops, from Australia. The result is a malty-sweet beer with pineapple, mango and papaya flavors. Yum!


MALT: 2-Row, Munich Crystal

HOPS: Galaxy, SIMCOE

ABV:7.0% IBU: 70


 

SQUEEZER
 

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.  

MALT: PILSNER

HOPS: NELSON SAUVIN

ABV: 4.4% IBU: 23


 

PAST SEASONALS

cinnamon apple

amber ale

This beer is brewed with local malts, local apple cider, oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon and allspice.  Its aroma will remind you of fall.  Upon sipping you will taste spice, a rich malty base and a subtle tangy apple finish.  The hops add just enough bitterness to keep this spiced fruit beer very much a beer.

MALT: 2-ROW, MUNICH, CARAMEL, FLAKED OATS

HOPS: cENTENNIAL, LIBERTY

blonde peach

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.

AUTUMN IPA

AMERICAN IPA

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!

SESSION WHEAT IPA

This "Fantastically Crushable" beer is truly For Our City.
