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!

I PinA colada         Rum barrel aged session IPA      5% ABV 37 IBU 4 SRM           $10/32oz growler fill

If you’re not much into health food and like getting caught in the rain, this pineapple-coconut IPA aged in a rum barrel might just help you plan your escape! Six different hops with pineapple notes form a foundation for this crazy complex, super crushable tropical fruit bomb!


Big Ben  Extra Special Bitter (pale ale)     5.9% ABV 33 IBU 12 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!

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.

Simply Shaker Ale     American Ale      4.1% ABV 38 IBU 9 SRM                  $9/32oz growler fill

The Shakers were a Protestant branch of the Quakers that flourished in many communal locations, like the one here in Canterbury from the early 1700s through the early 20thcentury. Their beliefs in simplicity of form and function has inspired countless designers, architects and artists for generations. Made with molasses and sarsaparilla, this beer is inspired by those made by the Shakers in the early 1900s for the hired men who were needed for heavy farm work. $2 from every growler fill will be donated to the Canterbury Shaker Village Museum, a non-profit educational foundation.

Cranberry Sauce  Strong Cranberry Porter      8.2% ABV 25 IBU 32 SRM  $10/32oz growler fill

As the holidays threaten the perennial onslaught of family, there are those times when you just have to “hit the sauce”!  Twelve pounds of home-made cranberry puree complements the undertones of fruity dark malts to make this late autumn, big British Porter a great excuse to be Thankful!!


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!
