Say Hi

What's on TapStop by for a drink!

Common Anomaly

American Wild Ale6.4% ABV

This tart beer was fermented with 100% Brettanomyces yeast. The yeast lends a distinct barnyard funk, and some light fruity qualities as well. Complex, dry, and tart. 

Fruit variations:

  • Cherry
  • Raspberry
  • Blackberry

Counterweight Hefeweizen

Hefeweizen5.5% ABV

Our take on the classic Bavarian style hefeweizen. Brewed with German pilsner and wheat malt, and hopped with German tettnang hops. The yeast we used provides this beer the classic favors of the German hefeweizen, with predominant notes of banana and clove and a subtle bubblegum flavor on the finish.

Double Talisman

American DIPA8% ABV

We've utilized an immense amount of Nelson Sauvin to coax out some of the best qualities Nelson has to offer. Pronounced white grape, peach, and some nice tropical qualities really shine.

Headway

American IPA6.5% ABV

Headway IPA is brewed with four varieties of American hops. Headway blends these hop varieties in the kettle and in the dry hopping stages to allow these varietals to be bright and expressive.

Inundation

American IPA6.3% ABV

Inundation is brewed with 100% Citra hops, as well as dry hopped with Citra lupulin powder. Citrus flavor dominates.  

Proper Pause

Table Beer5.5% ABV

This beer spent more than a year resting in barrels with multiple strains of wild yeast and then conditioned in the bottle for more than 4 months. 
The result is a beer with lots of nice Brett characteristics. Some pineapple like flavors, light oak, and some nice funky tones too.

Second Furrow

Farmhouse Ale6.4% 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.

Stratagem

American IPA6.9% ABV

 
This week we'll start with a fun new beer. Stratagem is part of our ongoing exploration into what hoppy IPA's can be. Stratagem utilizes a new variety called Strata in the whirlpool and dry hop. Bright expressive berry notes with some really nice grapefruit alongside super dank qualities. 

Vignette

Foeder Saison6.2% ABV

Vignette is a mix culture Saison, fermented with various strains of lactobacillus and brettanomyces and then aged in a foeder for over a year.

Moderate citrus, soft oak, mild tartness and a hint of brett funk.

This saison is an expression of time, care and evolution.

Vulture Culture

American DIPA8% ABV

Vulture Culture was originally released as Double Galaxy in the Audition series. It is brewed exclusively with Galaxy hops from Australia. More than three pounds per barrel of dry hopping lends lots of passionfruit and orange pith notes, followed by a soft, rounded malt backbone which compliments the massive Galaxy hop presence.  

Where Do We Go From Here?

American IPA6.4% ABV

We used two of the newer hops out there today - Strata and Vic Secret - to create a unique drinking experience for the hoppy beer drinker. Gummy peach rings, grapefruit, and cannabis are some of its prominent qualities. 

Work Horse Pilsner

German Keller Pilsner5% ABV

Workhorse Pilsner is forged from traditional German ingredients, unfiltered, and dry hopped with noble hops. Grassy lemon citric notes mingle with a clean German Malt flavor. Refined yet unfettered, aggressively hopped yet balanced. Brewed to be seriously drinkable.
