New Year Round Brew from Long Trail:  VT IPA!

4/6 Packs Item # 48134  $29.70

Introducing our take on the hazy, hoppy style coming from the Green Mountains. 

Our brewers have been developing this recipe for the past year; playing around with yeast strains and hop combinations in search of a smooth, juicy offering that pleases palates. With VT IPA they found the perfect balance of tropical fruit and citrus flavors through a heavy dry-hopping of Citra and Amarillo hops, which give distinct tangerine, mango, pineapple and grapefruit character. 

The juicy hop profile is complemented by the grist, which features a heavy hand of flaked oats and aromatic Munich malt to deliver a smooth mouthfeel and hazy appearance. What sets this beer apart –aside from the soft bitterness– is the introduction of a new yeast strain that provides the beer with more neutral notes and juicy esters that enhance the hops.  (6%)

½ Bbls Item # 32042  $165.00

You can handle the truth!   MYTH: IBUs (hop bitterness) can only be achieved in the boil. TRUTH: Uh-uh!

The truth is, Dogfish Head has been doing innovative things in the world of hopping since we opened in the mid-90s. From our continual hopping method found in our 60 Minute, 90 Minute and 120 Minute IPAs to our latest innovation of post-boil hop additions found in our Liquid Truth Serum!

Our unique process involving pelletized, powdered, leaf and liquefied hops makes for a blissfully inefficient IPA that’s truthfully hoppy without being deceptively bitter. You’ll find the perfect match of citrusy and tropical notes, making for a zesty finish … honest.  (6.8%)

Sam Adams 26.2 Boston Brew is in!

½ Bbls Item # 15620  $156.00

The brewers at Samuel Adams are proud to be the official beer sponsor of the 122nd Boston Marathon. When Jim Koch, founder and brewer of Samuel Adams, released his first batch of Samuel Adams Boston Lager to the public, it was on Patriots’ Day (the day of the Boston Marathon) in 1985, right here in Boston. The alliance of two of Boston’s most recognized and beloved brands will give the city one more reason to be proud of this heralded event.

Back for its seventh year, Samuel Adams Boston 26.2 Brew is our beer brewed in partnership with the Boston Athletic Association to celebrate the Boston Marathon. This gose style ale contains light cereal notes from malted and unmalted wheat with a touch of coriander. Soft wheat and citrus character are contrasted with hints of salt and coriander and it finishes clean with soft fruit and crisp citrus notes. With a lighter body and lower alcohol level (4.5% ABV), this beer is fitting for both runners and race fans alike.

Super Limited Release from Ithaca:  Pulp Addiction  (only 3 avail.)

1/6 Bbls Item # 59414 $115.00

It can be argued that New England IPA wouldn’t be what it is today without Citra. Galaxy has emerged as another formidable name within the scene of the New England style. Known primarily for intense passion fruit and citrus character it lends itself well to the highly demanded soft tropical IPA profile.

Hazy and refreshing, with strong sweet citrus, bold passion fruit, tropical and floral notes. Pulp Addiction offers a soft pillowy mouthfeel, full body, yet refreshing with plenty of haze from healthy amounts of wheat and oats.  (6.9%)

A BIG Welcome to MVDC:   Clown Shoes Brewing!

 

Something’s happening, and it involves clown shoes and beer.  Clown Shoes?  Very long story, but to condense it a group of us submitted the name to the Beer Advocate contest that resulted in The Wrath of Pecant.  Our submission didn’t crack the top 5.  This burned me up inside.  While driving one day the epiphany came: I could make my own Clown Shoes beer.  In no way did I expect to create a brand, figuring it would be one batch of beer for fun and then done.  But folks are digging the brews and a group of us are having a great time.  Clown Shoes has come to mean a lot to me on a lot of levels.  Clowns are questionable but the shoes make me laugh.  They remind me about humility and to find humor in life.  Our mission now is to produce beer without pretension while being free and a little crazy. We hope you enjoy the beers and this site.

Sincerely,
Gregg Berman

An easy drinking golden ale for everyone.  Brewed to be crisp and refreshing with a bit of wheat malt for body and a delicate hop finish.  William Jennings Bryan delivered one of the most famous political speeches ever at the 1896 Democratic National Convention, in Chicago. The speech was named Cross of Gold, and provided the inspiration for one of Revolution’s original beers. Jennings Bryan was a populist, something we craft brewers consider ourselves to be. Cross of Gold was first brewed in Josh Deth’s basement by Brewmaster Jim Cibak, in June 2009. Two additional batches followed, to dial in the recipe, before becoming one of the initial beers served at the Revolution Brewpub in 2010. Cross of Gold has since taken home Gold at the Great American Beer Festival and the World Beer Cup. It remains a favorite among our employees, and is a top seller at the Brewpub and Tap Room.  (4.8%)

New from Boulevard:  Flora Obscura!

4/6 Packs Item # 11304  $32.25

Born from experimentation by our brewers and cellarmen, Flora Obscura Dry-Hopped Porter marries bright, citrusy, tropical fruit aroma and flavors provided by CascadeSimcoeAmarilloMosaic and Galaxy hops with contrasting malty notes of chocolate, espresso and caramel. Beginning with our two-row base pale malt, layers of Cara 120, Cara 300, chocolate malt and a touch of unmalted wheat create a robust porter base from which the blend of hops, featuring a dry-hopping just shy of three pounds per barrel, shine.

With an opaque, deep mahogany appearance, Flora Obscura presents aromas of subtle roast and chocolate malt brightened by aromas of berries, grapefruit/citrus and earthy pine. Prominent roasted malt characters lend balance and support to the bold hop profile before tapering to a lingering, slightly sweet finish.  (5.8%)

Limited Release from our Local Ipswich Brewery:  Hellbound!

6/4 Pack 16 oz Cans Item # 12112  $52.00

In the midst of the uneasy peace in 1740, a religious revival swept across New England, it was known as the Great Awakening. Legend says that preacher George Whitfield’s powerful sermon filled the congregation of Ipswich’s First Church with a horrible sense of their sin. The devil, lurking among the pews, was so pained by the preacher’s words he charged up the steeple stairs and leapt to the Town Green below. A footprint left by the prince of darkness can still be found burned into the rocky ledge to this day… Our take on an American barleywine goes down smooth, but packs a devilishly bold punch. It’s slightly sweet with lingering hints of raisins and caramel.  (11.8%)

Pouring a slightly hazy golden, City Market Cider offers bright aromas of sweet/tart apples that are answered by bold, juicy flavors with Jonathan apples taking the spotlight with Fuji supporting with a soft acidity reminiscent of apple skin tartness. Featuring a slight blend back of fresh Fuji juice (2.8% of the total blend) to lend a balancing sweetness, City Market Cider’s finish lingers, alternating between sweet and tart apple character that begs for another sip.

The full-bodied milk stout is enriched with the robust flavor of Autocrat Coffee to achieve an extraordinary taste experience. Brewed under the supervision of award-winning Brewmaster Sean Larkin, Narragansett’s Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout delivers a flavorful, smooth, dark brew with notes of roasted barley, chocolate malt and rich crystal malt. The exacting touch of hops provides just the right amount of bitterness to balance the sweet notes of the malts and milk sugar.  (5.3%)

Limited Release from Vermont’s Switchback Brewery:  Dooley’s Porter!

4/6 Packs Item # 54408  $31.00

Our Porter features a blend of roasted and caramelized malts giving it a luscious malt signature that has an earthiness derived from the non-traditional use of ­flaked barley in the grain bill. The bold use of only Simcoe hops for both bittering and aroma highlights this hop varietal and balances the malt to create a robust, yet smooth finishing porter. Long ago, the owner gave his first employee, Chris Dooley, the honor of selecting the next beer style to produce. Dooley (never call him Chris) chose porter. However, the demand for Switchback Ale, our fl­agship brew, exceeded our capacity, preventing the release of this new beer for FIVE years. Our first kegs of Porter were finally sold in December 2009. Considering this long delay, we christened it Dooley’s Belated Porter.


Our Local Ipswich Brewing Limited Release!

Zumatra Stout! 

6/4 Pack 16 oz Cans Item # 12111  $52.00

1/6 Bbl Item # 12110  $80.00

Community. Coffee. Beer. These things unite us. Here in Ipswich we’re lucky to have not only great beer and people, but also great coffee from Zumi’s, a coffee shop owned by a former mountain guide from Nepal. Our friends at Zumi’s take full-bodied Sumatran beans from Indonesia to create an earthy cold-brew that is then blended into our smooth stout. Serve slightly warmer than a Yeti’s den and enjoy hints of dark chocolate that emerge from the coffee infusion.  (7%)
