Today is the day that Montpelier (this little town we built) celebrates America’s Independence, so, if you’re in Montpelier, come see us today because we will join the thrones of people who will be doing other things besides working tomorrow and will not open our doors.
Here’s some things that you can expect to see soon (maybe not today but soon and for the rest of your life):
Idletyme Bohemia: Czech style Pilsner – so, soft and flowery without the mineral “bite” present in more German styles. At least, that’s like my opinion man.
Hill Farmstead Abner: gold standard Double IPA.
Upper Pass Cloud Drop: Double IPA with what can be considered the “newer” hops out there (Azacca and Mosaic are the ones that come to mind, even though I’m not entirely sure which hops are used those are the hops that I think about when I’m putting quotes around the words “newer hops” – most of these newer ones are kind of like talking about ganja: seriously, back in my day you could roll your own joint and be good without passing it because you could, actually, smoke the whole thing yourself and still maintain conversations with authority figures. Nowadays, one hit will make you cower in a corner clutching your guitar, unable to figure out how a guitar works even though you’re quite proficient with the instrument. That said, the newer hops have this strength to them that the more Noble (that’s a thing) hops didn’t). Huge tropical and fruit flavors come through with the use of these hops, almost making the beer actually taste like fruit. Sorry about the marijuana reference but, well, it’s kind of true how it goes like that.
Lost Nation Gose: we’ve had a lot of these on recently and I don’t think you need me to placate you on this. Tart Ale with a high portion of wheat and the addition of coriander and salt.
Zero Gravity Gose: we’ve had a lot of these on recently and I don’t think you need me to placate you on this. Tart Ale with a high portion of wheat and the addition of coriander and salt.
Frost Beer Works VT Farmhouse: I’m shying away from billing this as a “saison” as, per my understanding, it’s more like a Belgian Style Pale Ale than a saison. Which means, it’ll have a darker hue than you’d expect out of a saison and have a little more body to it all the while having that “Belgian” tinge to it.
Just tapped/on right now if you get here as soon as you can:
Lawson’s Finest The Space in Between: we’re on our last keg of this so if you’re reading (it’s Monday where I am) this you might want to get here to drink it.
Hill Farmstead Dharma Bum: a Single Hop IPA (the hop is called Simcoe – which, when said in a certain way sounds like “Simba” and then you can raise your glass in the air and proclaim that everything that the sun touches is now your beer’s property).
Citizen Cider Companion: they went and put sour cherry in a cider.
That’s it. That’s all we’re serving today.
A good Independence Day to you and yours.
