M.V.B.
5.3% ABV
Brewed in collaboration with Peter Mallon, this American Wheat beer is a most valued beer. He also calls it Mothers Vicious Brain, Malevolant Viscous Boil, Mas Very Buick, My Very Beautiful, Many Voluptuous Buttoxes, Macho Victory Bill, Maggot Vaccine Breakfast, Major Velocity Backflip, Miniature Virtuous Beehive…and other stuff. To be honest I have no idea what the acronym is and am not entirely sure Peter does either. But I do know it is made with US 2 Row and German Wheat Malts, generously hopped with Citra. It is delightfully refreshing in these summer days!

Third in the "Pillow Talk Series" brewed with Mary Izett of Fuhmentaboudit! (and the lovely lady I share my pillow with).

Gran Marvin
4.5%
Belgian Witbier. Sweet and melodious like Gran Marnier and Marvin Gaye!

(No ingredient was in direct contact with meat; this beer is vegetarian friendly) In addition, we added 12 toasted sesame buns, 12 toasted Portuguese muffins, and 12 toasted brioche mini buns to the mash.

Sunshine & Moonlight

This beer is made with 1/3 pilsner malt, 1/3 wheat malt, and 1/3 orange blossom honey from Tremblay Apiaries in upstate NY. It is dry and crisp with spicy citrus fun - dangerously quaffable!
Golden Gordon
10.5%
A Belgian Golden Strong. This beer is not necessarily not my tribute to our hero Gordon Strong (author of Brewing Better Beer, as well as the BJCP Style Guidelines) but I can't wait for the life of me say the words Golden Strong in succession. When I speak of this style, the words that flow from my mouth always end up coming out as "Gordon Strong". Gordon Strong is a family name in my house and he is worth knowing! A big sweet lovely beer for a big sweet lovely guy. This Belgian Strong Ale is made with Pilsner Malt & Cane Sugar for that big sweet lovely. Hopped with Hersbrucker, Saaz and Hallertauer & fermented with Wyeast 3725 Bier De Garde yeast.

Hopped with Strisselspalt and Brewers Gold.
Big Alice Alcoholiday
8.8% ABV
This festive ale was brewed as a “graf” with our friends Robert Crafton and Kyle Hurst of Big Alice Brewing Company. It was brewed with a large portion of fresh apple juice from Massachusetts. A “graf” is part cider, part beer. With a pleasant dose of Victory and Aromatic malts, it is a bready/biscuit ale with the sweetness of apple, the spice of cinnamon along with an alcoholic bite. It emotes the essence of a classic American apple pie without being overly sweet. A crisp dry finish.
Virgin Snow
9% ABV
When I asked my friend Brian Bennett to brew in collaboration with me he became utterly perplexed. Brian is a relentless craft beer junkie yet had never brewed a beer. He didn’t think he’d ever have to answer the question “what do you want to brew?”. This beer is his answer. It is a big alcohol Imperial Stout with delectable chocolate roast character and moderate sweetness. We brewed this beer with Brian and his friend Don Bethany in December in what ended up being the first of many snow storms this season… hence the name Virgin Snow (also to representing Brian’s first time brewing). This beer was lots of fun to create, and even more pleasant to drink!
Cat Sitting Bitter
4.5% ABV
An English Pale ale hopped with East Kent Goldings and dry hopped with Citra. This beer is a fantastically refreshing pale ale, light in body and heavy in character with an extremely sessional Alcohol By Volume.
Binary Belgian
7% ABV
This Belgian Dubbel Style beer was brewed using house made Belgian candy syrup. While showcasing a heavy Belgian yeast strain character, it meets the middle with dark fruit notes of raisins, plums and cherries. This beer is wonderful with food and can add complexity to almost any meal.
Lynn Der Weise
5% ABV
Weisse = White in German. Weise = Wise in German. Lynn is not German. This beer is though! Lynn Der Weise Hefe-Weizen style ale is brewed with 63% wheat malt and 37% pilsner malt alongside Hallertau hops and a German Hefewizen ale yeast. It is light and bright with light notes of citrus and clove. Orange slice optional.
Way of the Sam-O'-Rye
5% ABV
Inspired by the movie Ghost Dog and brewed in brollaboration with my dear friend Mike Lovullo of Union Beer Distributors, this Oatmeal Porter was made with a touch of rye to kick in some spice to balance out the sweet creamy oatmeal character. Big in body, chocolaty yet crisp, with a moderate alcohol by volume, this beer is an incredibly dark 'Summer Ale'. Flaked oats, malted oats, roasted barley, chocolate malt atop a bed of golden promise malt. East Kent Golding, Fuggle and Galena hops.
This Little Piggy Ate Smoked Beef
3.7%
Smoked Summer Mild. Brewed with our friend Robert Crafton of Big Alice Brewing Co., this smoked summer mild is crisp, smoky and bright. 25% cherrywood smoked malt, 40% wheat, 30% golden promise and flaked oats, along with Nugget and East Kent Golding hops. Delightfully thirst quenching with the essence of all things good in barbecue. Happy summer!
