Saison de Cassis
Translation: A season of blackcurrants this Belgian Farmhouse Style brewed with barley from Belgium; hops from the USA & Germany; & yeast cultivated from a difficult to obtain Belgian yeast. The resulting fermentation delivers a crisp & very dry beer with esters/ aromas of earthiness & fruitiness. However the standout flavour is attributed to Vermont grown Blackcurrants offering a subtle tart finish.

Prayer Rock Pale
A copper coloured American pale ale using 100% Cascade hops grown in Vermont. Hop bitterness is light, however heavily dry hopped to offer floral aroma & citrus flavour notes. North American pale malt rounds out a dryer than average ale at 4.9% abv OG 1.041 IBU:24
Thirst quenching, not overly bitter, this Bohemian Lager is reminiscent of the straw to golden colored pilsners you would find in the Weserbergland of Niedersachsen, Germany. Utilizing German malted barley, this medium bodied beer is balanced all around at 4.9% abv. Light bitterness of this lager is accredited to crisp Hallertauer varieties, with a floral aroma from the use of Saphir & Celeia hops.
OG 1.042 IBU:20
A medium-bodied IPA that combines the best ingredients from both sides of the pond. Brewed with English pale and crystal malts, this IPA is dominated with an array of domestically grown hop varieties to provide an aromatic hop presence with distinct bitterness and hop flavor.
5.9% abv OG 1.052 IBU:69
This is a gold colored Czech Pilsner style beer, with a pronounced spicy bitterness. The bitterness is from Žatec/Saaz hops imported from the Czech Republic along with German Hallertau Hersbrucker hops & the hop aroma is Styrian Golding delivering a blast of flavour. A tight creamy head compliments its velvety body.
4.2% abv OG 1.040 IBU:39
Our American brown ale has a light brown to deep copper color sporting a medium body with a dry, but slightly sweet maltiness from generous additions of chocolate & brown malted barley and dark malted wheat. Very little hop character is evident to permit the more nutty malt flavors to stand out…

A collaboration with Loup Rouge, artisan brasseur, coopérative de travailleurs, Sorel-Tracy, Quebec.
Zusammenarbeit is the German word for collaboration or "working together." German-inspired Gose style. An overall complex style of ale that has malted barley & malted wheat, as well as wheat berries that were soured by wild yeast of a Vermont Terroir. Lightly salted & spiced with a small amount of coriander, this unfiltered offering balances the evident sharp sourness with a sparkling effervescence.
4.4% abv OG 1.044 IBU:8
A Belgian-styled, Chocolate Pepper Stout.
The name says it all, no regrets here taking a stout, brewing it with just the right amount of Pippali (Piper longum) in the kettle, fermenting with Belgian ale yeast that produced a pepper ester & dry-nibbed in the serving tank with cacao! A dark chocolate & ginger aroma fills the nose before you take a sip. Flavors of roast barley are then subdued with a pepper heat which stands out with dry chocolate & expresso notes that linger on the finish.
5.1% abv OG 1.057 IBU:22
South Mountain Stout
A semi-dry stout offering an initial malt & caramel flavor profile coupled with a distinctive dry-roasted bitterness in the finish. The emphasis of coffee like flavor and a light degree of roasted malt aromas define much of the character with medium body.
6.0% abv OG 1.063 IBU:20
12 oz. Snifter - $5.50 / Samples - $3
A deep, dense & thoughtful beer with many layers of flavors; from sweet and soothing malt-sweetness to hints of chocolate character and background. All co-mingle into a smooth, silky flavor that is contemplative but robust. While this beer was top fermented keeping true to historic roots of the style, the brew was conditioned as a bottom fermented variation, producing a softer roundness in the final product.

12 oz. - $5.50 / Samples - $3
A collaboration with BENELUX: brasserie artisanale et café, Montréal, Quebec.
This experimental style just shy of a wheat wine is based on the Belgian-inspired Wit PUMPED UP with all things "huit!" The use of "8" abounds with New Zealand Nelson Sauvin & German Saphir hops added at increments of 8 throughout the brew. Spiced with Curacao Orange Peel & Coriander, many 8's were used, whether they be in US or in metric measurements...
