Beer Info:

1. 2 Cloud 9 IPA
NEIPA – 7.25% - 50 IBU
Our hazy NEIPA offering! A beautiful blend of fruity hops that play into the lovely flavors and aromas produced in perfect synergy with the Conan Vermont IPA strain. Have a taste and step into space!

2. Kolsch
Kolsch, 4.75% - 20 IBU
A dry hop of Tetnanger and Hersbrucker help to enhance the kettle additions of the same variety. This beer is a sessionable, balanced beer, with a unique hop aroma, without being too hoppy. Clean, crisp, and very enjoyable.

3. Sweet Scoville Sting
Honey Jalapeno Ale – 6% - 20 IBU
This beer boasts a huge amount of honey added to the kettle. The incorporation of jalapenos help pull this beer together with a lovely balance of spicy and flavorful, while still sweet. Two worlds collide in harmony.

4. *Oktoberfest* Good Love
Marzen Lager - 5.65% - 21 IBU
Delicious any time of the year, this deeply amber hued German lager is a treat. Boasting a bready and warm flavors with a touch of sweet biscuit and malt, this clean lager is quite sessionable and a lovely malt forward brew. Tettnanger and Hersbrucker hops have a mellow impact on this delicious seasonal beer. Munich, Vienna, Pils, and Specialty Crystal malts shine in this lager. Prost!

5. *Oktoberfest* SDE Festbier “Oktoberfest”
Festbier    5.4% abv  21 IBU
The great brauhauser and city squares of Munich may be empty this year, but we’ve loaded up on some classic German styles to have a little celebration of our own!  Most people are familiar with the old-school Marzen-style Oktoberfest brew like our Good Love, but somehow the more prevalent and modern style consumed in Germany, the Festbier, hasn’t often shown up in America. Nestled right in between a Helles lager and and a Helles Bock, our Festbier is a bright gold with a malty oomph and a pleasant balance of bitterness.  Floral and spicy aromas and flavors are brought into the mix with the classic German noble hop Hallertau Mittelfruh.  Legend has it that after you finish a round you can put your ear to the top of your glass and you’ll hear a German Oom-Pah band playing a jaunty tune… or maybe that was after finishing a 3 liter boot!?!
