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!



Love is in the Ale! Chocolate Strong Porter 8.0% ABV 28IBU 43 SRM    $10/32oz growler fill

  Around the middle of February urges spring forth from our often too dormant root chakra stirred by memories of bright verdant mornings. This provocative, rich sipping elixir is best shared with a very close friend! AleMan will sit this one out     for the sake of discretion, so you two are on your own!  Happy Valentine’s Day!

Big Ben                      Whiskey Barrel Aged  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 delightfully quaffable pale ale that is so Brilliantly British, you’ll want to turn back time just so you can enjoy one more!

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.  



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?!

Enlightened Peasant  Bavarian Farmhouse Ale      7.2%   24 IBU          6 SRM    9/32oz growler fill

A little known, old Bavarian peasant beer, this DampfBier is distinguished by a unique fermentation of a barley beer using a traditional Southern German wheat beer yeast. A refreshing and delightfully complex ale brings the pallet on a journey deep into the mysterious and ancient Black Forest of fairy tale fame. Neighborhood Brewing Co’s own Brew-Wizard Joe Berwanger offered up some great tips to help make this “Boss Flamingo” style beer even more interesting!


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!

Murphy’s Red Friday       

Whiskey Barrel Aged Mapled Irish Red     7.2% 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!)
