The Beers

Elderberry Saison

Saison - 5.9%

Another Accidental Friends project has taken shape with Elderberry Saison, a local collaboration with Fisher Brothers Farm of Shelburne, Vermont.

Brewed with elderberry juice from the farm, this saison has big Belgian phenolic characters on a backdrop of pineapple ester aromas, and a subtle Noble hop notes to complement the natural tartness of the elderberry.

Petite Pearl

Beer / Wine Hybrid - 9.4%

This wine-beer hybrid blends red grape must from Shelburne Vineyard with a spicy rye and wheat wort. It has an off-dry sweetness balanced against barely-there tannins, noble hops and mild grape acidity. Fermented with our brewery manager’s proprietary wine yeast from the Front Range of Colorado and finished with our house ale yeast.


Beer / Wine Hybrid - 8.6%

This wine-beer hybrid features white grape must from Snow Farm Vineyards co-fermented with a wort using American hops for big pineapple flavor and aroma. Bright and fruity, this hybrid supplies a bright stone fruit acidity from the Vignoles grape.

Kittens On Parade

Double IPA - 8.2%

A dank Double IPA that purrs with huge hop notes of citrus rind, pine, and grapefruit.

Tripel Chair

Belgian Tripel - 9.1%

Inspired by our classic Single Chair golden ale, this small-batch spin features big Belgian yeast esters and a mild phenolic spice. Noble hops add a lemony citrus character to its medium body.

Mad Pater

Belgian Patersbier - 4.1%

Our take on a traditional patersbier, brewed with rosemary to complement the fruity Belgian yeast esters and phenolic character.


Extra Special Bitter - 5.6%

An Extra Special Bitter with a mild malt sweetness not to be outdone by its floral, spicy hop aromas and flavors and a firm hop bitterness.

Fancy Grade

Maple Doppelbock - 7.8%

A full-bodied doppelbock, deep-amber in color, with subtly sweet notes of Vermont maple syrup and malty hints of toast, biscuit and caramel.

Local Rocker

Saison - 6.4%

A farmhouse saison with floral, peppery and light citrus notes preceding a deliciously dry finish.

Laughing Stock

Double IPA - 8.4%

A juicy, modern Double IPA with huge citrusy and fruity hop notes from start to finish.

Taken For Granite

American IPA - 6.6%

A juicy American IPA with big hop notes of grapefruit, orange and pine balanced with a smooth, yet subtle, malt backing.
