Cities and Years

American IPA|6.2% ABV

Cities and Years was brewed with hefty additions of cryo hops in the whirlpool, and dry hopped with a new variety of hop called Sabro (formerly HBC438). Sabro was developed by the same great folks who brought Citra and Mosaic into the world. We’re really loving the character its added to our beer. Pithy stone fruits, and what we can best describe as Starburst candy-like aromas dominate this IPA. 

Counter Weight 12° Tmave´

Brewed in the Czech tradition, with a long decoction mash schedule, fermented in open top fermenters, and horizontally lagered, T'mave Pivo is our new 4.5% abv Czech Dark Lager beer. 

CW 12 plato T'mave Pivo offers up a touch of  coffee like roastiness with some really nice malt sweetness alongside complimenting nuttiness.

Second Furrow

Farmhouse Ale|6.4% ABV

You may remember "First Furrow", the collaboration foeder Czech Pilsner brewed with our friends at Fox Farm Brewery last year. Last October we got together with our friends again to make Second Furrow. This beer is the culmination of some Connecticut ingredients coming together in the spirit of collaboration to make something delicious. Native CT honey was added in the coolship, the beer was fermented and conditioned with a blend of our collective mixed cultures, and then it rested on CT grown St Croix grapes that Zack and Dave were generous enough to share with us. The result is a farmhouse ale with distinct funky and fruity characteristics with balanced acidity.

Spiral Architect - Green Label

Mixed Fermentation|6.6% ABV

More than 18 months in the making, Vitalis is a blend of mix fermentation white wine barrel aged beers that then rested on Marsanne and Roussanne grapes. The result is a wonderfully complex and layered beer offering juicy pear, fresh cut cantaloupe, melon, with vibrant interwoven acidity. Its oakiness helps to bridge its funk, tart, and fruit qualities. Our aim was to bring the lovely attributes of these grape varieties in the world of beer to create a unique and delicious experience. We love the results and hope you do too.
