A big, hoppy IPA originally released back in 2011, when the time constraints involved with the move to their new brewhouse meant they could not brew their beloved Brown Shugga. Because it became so popular, what started as a one-time apology beer will new be brewed year-round as part of their regular lineup! At 7.85% abv, it's extravagantly hoppy while relatively low on bitterness, with clean flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, and tropical fruit notes. It's made with a medley barley, rye, wheat, and oats, all generously dry-hopped for a big aroma and a resinous hop profile. It's the sign of a great brewery when even their screw-ups are fantastic.
Rising Tide Daymark, Zephyr:
Based in Portland, ME (as if Portland needed another brewery), the Rising Tide Brewing Co. opened their doors in October of 2010. Their Daymark Pale Ale is brewed with rye grown on small family farms in Maine and malted at Valley Malt in nearby South Hadley. At 5.5% abv, it has a robust, spicy rye flavor that is well-balanced with some fruity, piney hops in the finish. Their Zephyr is an American IPA with the big, complex hoppiness one would expect (from a blend of Cascade, Centennial, and Calypso hops), as well as a formidable kick at 7.2% abv.
A “session lager” from the lager-happy brewers at Jack’s Abby in Framingham, it has the distinctive citrusy hoppiness of an American beer but is nicely subdued with decadent cereal grain and wheat notes, with a light nuance of caramel in the background. Light and flavorful, it uses local Soft Red Winter Wheat from Four Star Farms in Northfield, MA.
Wormtown Pro-Am Porter:
The Worcester-based brewery teamed up with homebrewer Keith Antul, based on his award-winning Porter recipe. It's a traditional English-style Porter beefed up for an American palate, with strong notes of earthy roasted coffee, chocolate malts, and an enticing smokiness. Smooth and silky, it's perfect for a cold winter day.
Otter Creek Russian Imperial Stout:
From Otter Creek Brewing/Wolaver's in Vermont, it's true to style with a high alcohol content (10% abv) and a thick, viscous mouthfeel. Roasted malts, black licorice and dark fruit flavors mingle together for a warming winter brew.
Long Trail Double White:
Part of the Brewmaster Series, their Double White is a Witbier at 8% abv and brewed with coriander and orange peel. An unfiltered ale with soft notes of citrus and spice (as one would expect from a Witbier), it makes for a refreshing brew that hides its strength well.
