BEERS. (always rotating tap & bottles)

Burnside – Foundation Brewing – Portland, ME –IPA 5.1% – IBU 25

Burnside is our brown ale. Layered with roasted notes of coffee, burnt sugar, and chocolate, but balanced by a touch of malty sweetness and Maine-grown oats for body, it finishes smooth and easy.

Firestarter – North Country Brewery – Rollinsford, NH – Cider 5%

A sweeter cider flavored with cinnimon and habenero pepper. Its been called “warm apple pie” or “fireworks in your mouth”.NH and ME grown apples

Horchata Milk Stout – Untitled Art Brewing Co – Madison, WI – Milk Stout – 10%

Collaboration with Mikerphone Brewing, this sweet stout is brewed with rice, cinnamon and vanilla.  A Horchata inspired Imperial Milk Stout, the best way to describe this luscious stout is “like the milk left over after eating Cinnamon Toast Crunch”, but in a good way.

The Imp– Tumbledown Brewing Co – Farmington, ME – Imperial Red – 8% – IBU 86

Auburn color w malty backbone. Cranked up alcohol level with a hefty added dose of Chinook hops for a hoppy finish

Yuzu Kosho Gose– Foulmouthed Brewing Co – SoPo, ME – Gose – 4% –

Sour Gose brewed w/ yuzu kosho, yuzu peel, and a blend of salt and chili

Oh-J – Lone Pine – Portland, ME – American 2XIPA – 8.1%

A carefully selected arrangement of late-addition hops produce a pure citrus punch. 0% fruit. Fresh, never frozen. Not from concentrate.

Anodyne – Austin ST – Portland, ME – American IPA – 6%

With simcoe, Amarillo, and Citra hops you get grapefruit, peach, and tangerine with a long citrusy, slightly grassy finish. A healthy dose of malted wheat provides a smooth and creamy finish.

Ransack the Universe – Collective Arts – Hamilton, Ontario – IPA 6.8% IBU 85

Galaxy hops from Myrtleford, Victoria in Australia and Mosaic hops from Yakima, Washington, USA, deliver aromas and flavours of tropical fruits, mango and citrus. Light malt body lets the hops shine through, and finishes crisp but not bitter. A hemispheric hop mashup.

Stillis – Bear Bones Brewing – Lewiston, ME – Session Sour Ale 6.3% IBU 4

This very light sour session ale is brewed with refreshment in mind, because, as GURU said, “lemonade was a popular drink, and it …”

Tesselation – Lone Pine Brewing Co. – Portland, ME – 2XIPA – 8.1%

Our 100% mosaic hopped Double IPA stands bright, but with a strikingly soft and rounded mouthfeel. Heavy whirlpool & dry hop additions showcase the complex mosaic hop aromatics of blueberry, mango, and juicy, overripe peach

Strawberry Fields – Stowe Cider Co – Cider – Stowe VT – 5.5%

Well balanced cider with fresh strawberries and apples. Not overpoweringly strawberry.

Tips Up – Stowe Cider Co – Cider – Stowe VT – 6.5%

Born in the mountains of Vermont for cider drinkers everywhere. Semi-dry and totally balanced

Blinky – Woodland Farms – IPA – Kittery, ME – 7.4% – IBU 80

This is a delicious haze bomb! Color is a hazy milky orange. Smell is juicy grapefruit citrus notes.
Taste is very grapefruit upfront with a dry pine resin finish.

Basket Island – Rising Tide Brewing – Bethel, ME – German Pilsner – 4%

Basket Island — a small island in Casco Bay, protected as a nature preserve.  Easily accessible by kayak or dinghy for picnics on the small sandy beach.  Hazy and juicy IPA with a strong citrus and stone fruit character
