Smoking on 36th Street

A lighter-weight porter carbonated and served on Nitrogen. Unlike its American counterparts, the English Porter is less hoppy and more malt-forward. Carbonated and served on nitrogen, this ale has a creamy consistency one would expect from higher-gravity stouts, without the high alcohol content. The initial smoke flavor gives way to creaminess from the sweetness of the malt and the nitrogen in solution, followed by subtle flavors of cocoa, slight bitterness from the hops, and possibly a hint of fruit.

Autumn's Early Arrival Blonde Ale

A sweet, tangy ode to the last days of summer and the arrival of the crisp fall months. With a bit of a citrus bite from actual orange peel, rather than citrus hops, this blonde ale is, like its counterpart in women, a class act with a lot to be enraptured by and little to dislike. Its golden hue at the top of the glass transitioning to darker as you look down toward the base, this beer reminds us that summer is fleeting, and autumn will be here before you know it - but that that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Bier

A pale, bright, refreshing Plzeň-style lager. The Pilsen malt is distinct within each sip with complex features. Balanced well with traditional Saaz and Tettnager hops for a bitter, but not overly harsh, finish.

Ironclad

The term "steam" as a euphemism for beer originated on the West Coast during the 1800s, presumably from the way the fermentors were left open in the cool air of San Francisco, giving off small amounts of water vapor during fermentation. Today, this style of beer is called "California Common", and its most popular version is Anchor Steam. Our version of "steam" is an amber-colored ale with hints of caramel and biscuit, brewed with West Coast hops, and is a nod to our colleagues out West. It's brewed with a smaller alcohol content, so that you can enjoy a few of them during a single session without getting too intoxicated.

Anti-Scurvy Elixir

Our rendition of an American IPA uses a significant amount of Citra hops to provide a citrus-forward aroma and flavor. The finish has a slight passionfruit character that pairs well with the bitterness provided by the hops.

The Patriot

A Vienna-style lager brewed in the style that became famous in the city of Boston. An amber-colored lager with a malty start that finishes relatively dry and clean. Notes of bread, toastiness, and biscuit from high-quality malts give this beer its signature flavor.

Seasonal Beers

Blues Don't Bother Me

A fruit beer with blueberries added during the boil. This beer has a cream ale base, so there is a significant sweetness from the base beer style that transfers through to this variant. The blueberries add a tartness when fermented, giving this ale an almost sparkling fruit juice quality to it. The hops balance the package to produce a refreshing summer ale.

Specialty Beers

Kung Fu Kicker

A dark, wine-like, aged beer designed to be sipped like a fine cognac. This barleywine is aged for at least two years in small, 2-liter barrels, giving it the equivalence to 8+ years of aging in a normal 30-gallon oak barrel. A silky-smooth drinking experience, you will notice a significant cherry aftertaste co-mingling with the malty sweetness. With an oak-y finish, coupled with just a hint of spice, this beer pairs well with a thick steak or after a holiday dinner.

As this is one of our rarest and most labor-intensive beers, it is only brewed once per year, and offered in 750ml bottles. It is sold in a priority-order, with our VIP members having first opportunity to purchase the limited quantities. We also offer 2L barrels in which it was aged, should you want to continue aging it yourself.
