Ready to get scientific? The primary definition of a lager is that it is a bottom-fermented beer. The yeasts used to ferment the beer flocculate (gather) at the bottom of the fermentation tank. Ales are just the opposite and use yeasts that are top-fermenting. Lager yeasts can also tolerate much lower temperatures than yeasts used for ales. We take advantage of these yeasts to create traditional world beers like Pilsners, Helles, Vienna Lagers, Bocks and even Baltic Porters.
What exactly is a dessert beer? Simply its a creative beer meant to match or emulate a popular dessert or sweet treat. Think of it like a culinary beer. While others only add flavors to stouts we feel you can make a dessert beer from an amber ale. How about a beer that looks and tastes like a cannoli? Maybe one with chocolate, peanut butter and jelly. What about s'mores, gingerbread and eggnog? Yep you will always find something creative and fun in our lineup.
Historically IPA's were designed to travel the seas and were "hopped" up preserve the beer in the journey to India from England. Today they generally refer to any ale that is hopped but can be very different in bitterness, juiciness and color. We feature several dozen soft, pale and juicy New England IPA's along with traditional west coast and double IPA's. Looking for something different? We even make vanilla fruit milkshake IPA's. Whatever your favorite or preference let the hops fly!
Mixed fermentation (also referred to as "mixed culture fermentation") is any fermentation that consists of a combination of Saccharomyces (brewer's yeast), Brettanomyces (wild yeast), Lactobacillus (lactic acid bacteria), and Pediococcus (lactic acid bacteria), or other microbes that are unconventional in brewing. Thanks for the science lesson. What do they taste like. Well thats where things get wild. They can very from sour to tart to dank.
What is the difference between a porter and a stout? We really don't have time to get into the deep and rich history lesson on the historical and often intertwined backstory of the two styles. All you need to know is they are dark and delicious with flavors ranging from chocolatey to coffee to roasty to dark to bitter to creamy. Sometimes we will add additional flavors and even unfermented sugars like lactose to produce traditional milk stouts found in London. Whatever your persuasion never be afraid of the dark stuff. You will be surprised how approachable and enjoyable they can be.
What truly is a hard seltzer? For us its a gluten free fermented beverage made from real cane sugar. We add flavors and fruits but our focus is not to use adjuncts like dextrose. We keep it low cal, gluten free and fun. Our mixed cider ales are made with 49% apples and the rest malt base. Heck we might even find more creative styles not described here.
