Canterbury Ale        

American Pale Ale           5.5% ABV 38 IBU 8 SRM                 $8/ 32oz growler fill

Journey into Poetic balance. 

"Now that I’ve drunk a draught of quern-ripe ale,

By God it stands to reason I can strike


On some good story that you will all like!"

The Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer

Citrusy cascade hops and crisp subdued malt destine this golden all American Pale Ale to become a refreshing home-town classic!

Smoke House Porter   Smoked Robust Porter    6.4% ABV 37 IBU 31 SRM   $10/32oz growler fill

Smoke House Porter is a robust, malty, mahogany ale with custom smoked malt from our neighbors Fox Country Smoke House. (foxnh.com) Smooth, complex undertones of dark roast coffee and smoky chocolate, will hold its own with a tasty smoked cheese board and some tangy beef jerky!

  

Cinco de Lima     Tequila Barrel AgedLime Sour    7.5% ABV 17 IBU 4 SRM             $10/32oz growler fill          

This único cerveza answers the question: “How do you make a beer that tastes like a Margarita to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and the beginning of Spring?” Kettle soured then late kettle hopped with Ekunaut, Wakatu, Motueka and Lemondrop and dry hopped with Waiti and dosed with 20 pounds of fresh limes for tons of pallet puckering citrus-lime flavor. Get your sombrero on ‘cause this light Tequila barrel aged, summery beer will get you in a mood to Celebra Todo!

Back soon!  :-(

Immense Intense Phat Alpha

Imperial India Pale Ale                8.0% ABV 111 IBU 9 SRM                           $10/32oz growler fill

Decadent alpha acids, bodacious ABV, libidinous hops flavor and lascivious hops aroma abound as Citra, Amarrillo, Apollo and Mosaic bare all, making this sassy whirlpool and dry hopped East Coast Double IPA irresistibly compelling! Why just have a repressed IPA when you can get SEXY PHAT?!

 

Granite Ledge Stout 

Espresso-Oatmeal Stout         6.0% ABV 29 IBU 40 SRM                               $9/32oz growler fill

Canterbury’s own Granite Ledge Coffee, Oats and Beer! The perfect breakfast drink! A judicious dose of African espresso complements the dark roasty malts of this silky smooth oatmeal stout.

Pub Light                

British Pub Ale              4.6% ABV 28 IBU  5 SRM             $8/32oz growler fill

When you walk into a German Bier Stube you say ”Ein Bier Bitte” and you will probably get a Munich Helles Style light lager. If you walk into a British Pub you would say “A pint of Bitter please” And then a short time later you would say it again. . . and again. . .This is the kind of simple, easy drinking malty thirst-quencher and tongue loosener that builds Empires in corner pubs and inspiresBritish accents all over the world! Don’t worry! We know you’re on your way.  We’ll leave the “Pub Light” on for you!

Big Ben                   Extra Special Bitter (British pale ale)     6.4% ABV 35 IBU 15 SRM    $9/32oz growler fill

A great British Bitter is one of the gold standards that beers around the world are gauged. Of course “Bitter” doesn’t really mean bitter.  This is a robust, complex yet quaffable pale ale that is so Brilliantly British, you’ll want to set your clock back to "beer thirty" just so you can enjoy one more!

 

Murphy’s Red Friday       

Whiskey Barrel Aged Maple Irish Red     7.4% ABV 24 IBU 15 SRM                             $10/32oz growler fill

T’ Luck o’ t’ Irish can often drive even less star-crossed folk than poor Murphy t’ drink!  When t’ numbers jus’ don’ add up at t’ end of t’ week, and Saint Paddy’s not answerin’ yer heart-felt prayers, bless yer soul, AleMan is ‘der fer ya wit’ ‘dis new take on an old fashioned, sorrow-drowning Irish Red. A touch of our own maple syrup sweetens t’s pot o’ red gold t’ make t’ end o’ life’s worst weeks feel like there’s nothin’ so bad that it couldn’t be worse! (read t’s wit’ yer best Irish Brogue, Begorrah!) And what could not be worse than spending a couple months inside a whiskey barrel  (the beer I mean!)

  

Your Father Smelt of Elderberries   

Barrel Fermented French Saison         7.8% ABV 24 IBU 8 SRM                                 $10/32oz growler fill

Sometimes the hunt for new and interesting beers is like the search for the “Holy Grail”.  If you show up at your beer snob friend’s house with thisbeer they likely will not say “I already got one!” Elderberries harvested right from our farm and elderflower extract lend an earthy-floral backdrop to the singularly unique, barrel fermented spicy/peppery “outrageous accent” of the French Saison yeast. (no hamsters were injured in the making of this refreshing summer beer)

on hold (again!)

Old Darn Bard     British Brown Ale         4.5% ABV 24 IBU 21 SRM             $8/32oz growler fil

Telli’n stories and spinnin’ a joke.  Weaving rhymes with honest folk. Dusty bow sawin’ a chune, by the light of smiles dancing under the full moon. The Old Darn Bard with his tomes of Bull, keeps hearts and glasses ever full! 

Happy 90thbirthday Dudley Laufman! 

Whether in the din of a smoky English pub or at the next floor bouncin’ kitchen junket,Old Darn Bard goes down as easy as the conversation and as smooth as horse hair on a fiddle string!
