A Belgian Saison style ale brewed with local wildflower honey from Schlernitzauer Apiaries in Earlville, NY and locally grown ginger from Szarek Farms in Westmoreland, NY. French Saison yeast imparts a pleasant tartness. Ginger and Cascade and Chinook hops contribute subtle floral & spicy notes. Finish is crisp and Semi-dry.
An innovative collaboration with Ithaca Brewing Co., & first ever in the “Wort is Bond” Series. A variation on the pale Belgian style known as saison, often called “farmhouse ale” due to their history of being brewed in the countryside. Tart, with complex “funky” and fruity/earthy notes from the yeast and a grainy, nutty character from the blend of malts. Highly attenuated and fairly bitter, with a floral hop character mostly obscured by the yeast. Brewed almost exclusively with NY State grown ingredients.
A Session Rye IPA and a collaboration with one of our favorite local bands: Rabbit in the Rye.” Hop forward, with a spicy/grassy character that is complimented and amplified by the flavor of the NY State grown rye. Dry and bitter yet quenching and very drinkable. Like the band, a balance between rustic, earthy tones, and progressive flavor.
One of our co-founder’s original home-brew recipes—a robust Porter amplified with roasted chicory root. Roasty and fairly dry, with a pronounced coffee note from the chicory. Features the rich character of darker malts without the sweetness of many higher ABV porters. Bitterness is moderate and hop character is low to none. *NOTE: No actual chocolate or coffee in this ale!
Our Winter Warmer. A Belgian Dark Strong Ale brewed with local honey, cinnamon & nutmeg.
