Bombay Grab IPA
A big, bitter 77 IBU India Pale Ale, spiced with a blend of fragrant Magnum, Simcoe, and Cascade hops. An American IPA receipe designed by our late Brewmaster, Greg Noonan. He said that he wanted this to represent the American style IPAs being brewed by the creative brewers using todays malt and hop varieties. One of the original "East Coast IPA's."
5.5% ABV 77 IBU 6 SRM
A Berliner Weisse styled low-alcohol sour wheat beer. A very sour, very pale and light bodied ale with a refreshingly dry and tart finish. This beer is a tribute to Fred Cormier of Hopfenstark Brasserie in Montreal in an effort to replicate his most incredible, low alcohol Berlinerweiss that he has brought to the Vermont Brewers Festival over the last three years. We tip our cap to Fred and hope that you will enjoy our latest attempt to honor a great Master Brewer.
3.0% ABV 5 IBU 2.5 SRM
Burly Irish Ale
A slightly caramel, medium bodied smooth Irish Red Ale. Rich, creamy and mellow. A VPB favorite for 26 years! Designed to be a session ale at 4.2% ABV. Very lightly hopped to enhance the appeal for the masses. A true crowd pleaser. We have proudly served over a half million pints of this popular ale to our loyal customers!
4.2% ABV 17 IBU 12 SRM
A light, refreshing fruit beer fremented with over 500 pounds of real raspberries! At 6.2% ABV it is in the early reaches of the strong biére category! This ruby red, sour mashed and oak aged weiss beer is for everyone. Maybe some oak, cherry and vanilla come through? Try mixing it with our currently offered stout, on tap. It is real, it is right and it works. The freshest framboise on tap in town, no question!
