Original Vermont Logger
A golden, crisp, clean, light bodied European lager. Brewed with German malts, hops & yeast. This is an original Greg Noonan recipe first brewed back in the 90's. We used this recipe as a propagation batch, for this new strain of Munich lager yeast we picked out. The yeast is super clean and helps accentuate the malt profile.
The Wee Heavy
A big, malty 120 schilling Scotch Ale. Served in 8 ounce mugs only!
A Flemish Style Vermont Sour Red Ale fermented with brettanomyces yeast providing slight tartness with barnyard aromas and flavors. This recipe was the result of the collaborative efforts of VPB brewers both past and present in honor of their mentor and Master Brewer, Greg Noonan. The name (Toolah - Leez) comes from county Cork in Ireland where the Noonan clan originated. 6.1% ABV. Hits the style.
Raise one to Greg...

XXX - ON CASK - Vermont Milk Stout
We hand milked every cow in Vermont to produce this unique version of a milk stout style ale. Just kidding. However, this lactose induced creamy Vermont sweet stout offers a complexity of chocolate, sweet, delicate milk and an easy finish with a distinct roastiness! Try it for yourself. This ale was fermented for 4 weeks before we put it on tap. The longer this one conditions, the more complex it gets. 4.5% ABV. Vermont Milk Stout. Aged on Madagascar Cocoa Nibs from our friends at Lake Champlain Chocolates.
