The Beers

Bolt 117

An American take on a German Dortmunder Export Style lager. This beer is fermented cold and aged cold to provide a clean and crisp flavor.

5.2% ABV and 25 IBU’s 

Heron Ale

A traditional English Style Extra Special Bitter, or ESB. We blend American and European ingredients to provide a caramel maltiness balanced by a hoppy flavor. Following fermentation, we dry-hop with American grown El Dorado hops to increase hop aromatics. Our
Heron Ale is the perfect session brew. 

5.3% ABV and 35 IBUs

Wattaquadock Wheat

This is a traditional Bavarian Style Hefeweizen, brewed with un-malted wheat and 6 row barley to obtain the hazy unfiltered quality of a tradional Belgian Wit. Wheat is aged on dried chamomile and sweet orange peel to add a little spice and sweetness to this classic, easy drinking wheat ale. Our lightest offering.

4.8% ABV and 18 IBUs 

IPA

Not your typical IPA. Our current offering uses more dark and roasted malts than a traditional IPA. Brewer Jeff Mathews prefers to balance the normal bitter of an IPA with a good malty backbone. Caramel and chocolate malts imparts rich flavors to enhance and compliment the large additions of Sorachi Ace and Nugget hops. Following fermentation this beer was also dry-hopped with one cone Warrior and German Hersbrucker.

7% ABV and 75 IBUs
