Why the Name? The term “woodshed” has several meanings.  In the world of music and the arts, to “woodshed” means to practice intensively in private, to hone your skills and perfect your style before taking your talent into the public spotlight. On the other hand, to be “taken to the woodshed” means, well, another thing entirely…

Sister Golden Ale – Kölsch

Modeled after the famous namesake beer of Cologne, Germany, our light-bodied and refreshing Kölsch features a mild malty flavor and low bitterness. A suggestion of fruit and malt in the aroma and just a kiss of noble German hops for balance make for a very refreshing and easy-drinking pint. In a world gone mad stretching the limits of beer flavor and bitterness and strength… behold- a beautifully crisp and light golden blonde ale!   1.045 OG   20 IBUs   4.9% abv

Rochambeau – Belgian-style Pale Ale

Brewed with highest quality imported malts and an authentic Trappist yeast, our Belgian pale is pure old-world class in a glass. But the special twist is in the hops- our brewmaster is secretly enamored with Sorachi Ace hops, a relatively recent Czech/ English hybrid developed in Japan. These are featured throughout Rochambeau, from bittering to flavor hopping additions during the brew, and even as a post-fermentation dry hop. Their uniquely lemony, powdery nuances accent this beer in all stages of the tasting experience, but work particular magic alongside the fruity esters of the Belgian yeast aromas. Like a beautiful, yet challenging piece of music, it may take more than one listen (sip) to realize an indispensable new favorite!   1.052 OG   30 IBUs   5.8% abv

Why the name?  Rock, paper, scissors…

Better Off Red – Hopped Up American Red Ale

Brewed with a blend of American caramel malts for deep color and malt sweetness, and bombarded with hops throughout the brewing and conditioning process for a hoppy aroma and snappy bitter bite. Six hop varieties each vie for attention from the first sniff through the lingering finish- some citrusy, some resiny, some earthy and dank… but all in a high-flying balancing act with the malt richness.  1.064 OG   45 IBUs   6.6% abv

Flavorful American-style brown ale with malty notes of toffee, chocolate and hazelnut and mild citrus hop aromas. Named for a beautiful stretch of meandering country road which some of us think of as home.   1.063 OG   35 IBUs   6.4% abv

Bouquet Pink IPA 2017 – Spiced Tart Strong Ale

Our wildly popular floral IPA is back & better than ever! Citra and Nelson hops lend medium bitterness and distinctive tropical/citrus hop aromas, yet 6 types of edible flowers steal the show.

Cask-conditioned real ale – Always two on tap with new selections rotating in frequently

The modern industrial age has brought many improvements to our modern lives, including some that have altered our perception of beer and what it could and should be. Ice-cold refrigeration and unnatural forced carbonation have helped to promote flavorless fizzy (yet indefinitely stable) beers worldwide. But what of the time-honored methods of yesteryear? Unpasteurized, unfiltered and all-natural real ales hearken back to the advent of brewing and civilization itself. Regardless of style, these beers undergo a second fermentation in the cask, resulting in natural carbonation, and are served hand-pulled through “beer engines” at traditional cellar temperature (50-60F). The enhanced aroma and flavor will make a believer out of you, too! Purists will tell you, this is the only way to experience “real ale”…alive and on cask!
