Bottle Release For The Week Of August 29, 2018!

In November of 2015, our friends Wayne, Joey, Justin and Geiger from Cigar City Brewing visited us. They shared a number of special Cigar City beers with us and our guests, and we brewed two different beers. In 2016, we released the first of those projects, a Belgian-inspired brown ale.

On Weds., 29 August, we will release the second beer from that visit!

Works of Love: Cigar City 2015

A wort consisting of American malted barley, wheat, oats, and hops was rested for 48 hours in the open late fall air in our coolship, and then inoculated with lager yeast. After fermentation, the beer was transferred to French oak barrels for nearly 14 months. After extended bottle conditioning, this beer is now ready.

Please note that this beer is highly carbonated; therefore, we recommend serving this beer around 40ºF/4ºC.

Please visit our bottle release page,, for bottle limits and pricing information (credit card and matching ID required for this bottle).

We will also offer fresh cans of Dharma Bum and Society & Solitude #5! Visit our retail page for updated offerings in draft, bottles, cans and more.



Special Thursday Tapping: Poetica 1!

For those of you joining us Thursday, 23 August, we'll be tapping a special keg of the original batch of Poetica 1! We'll pour it until it's gone. 

See you soon!

Residency, Sante Adairius and More!

Hello Everyone!

Please join us on Wednesday, August 8th, at 11:30 a.m. for the public debut of our Tim Clifford Residency Beers! These will only be available for onsite consumption. Four in total, these beers were brewed in August of 2016 by Shaun and Tim during an intensive 2-week period of creativity and collaboration.  Each beer was brewed on our 5 hectoliter brewhouse and fermented and aged entirely in wine barrels.  

  • Residency 1
    Farmstead® ale brewed with old world pilsner malt and aged in wine barrels
  • Residency 2
    Farmstead® ale brewed with six-row malted barley and aged in wine barrels
  • Residency 3
    Farmstead® ale in the style of a Grisette, brewed with wine barrel stave-smoked malt and aged in wine barrels
  • Residency 4
    Farmstead® ale aged in wine barrels with citrus fruit

We will also have bottled beers from Sante Adairius available for onsite enjoyment as well! The SARA family was kind enough to send us Bernice, Cellarman and Westly, as well as single cases each of 6th Anniversary and Matrices, to share with you all. 

Please note that Vermont state law limits each person to two glasses of beer at a time; as such, we are not able to provide flights or more than two beers at once. We do not, however, anticipate running out of these bottles during the week. Thanks for your understanding.
