Ctrl-Alt-Del (5.2% ABV)

ctraltdelAltbier is like the Rush of beers: it’s a great style that doesn’t receive nearly enough airplay. It’s basically the German version of the brown ale. This is a moderately bitter amber beer, although the Noble hops used provide a nice, subtle aroma. You won’t find it anywhere else in the area. Expect to see it around Oktoberfest.

Strong Ale (8.9% ABV)

strongThe Strong Ale is a type of English Old Ale, typically aged for at least a decade before being served. The ale is pale golden, although not as light as its obvious cousin, the Belgian Tripel. This beer is vastly more bitter than our Double Hop IPA and our Mega IPA, making it our bitterest ale. This bitterness is offset by the sweetness of the beer, and the distinct finish. The robust flavorings have been well-rounded and the result is a very mellow beer with an absolutely incredible amount of flavor. We only tap a keg of this ale a year, typically in March.

Swimmin’ Cow (5.5% ABV)

cowThe British Rye Cream is an esoteric style, quite unique in Britain. It’s made with rye, and as its name suggests, the result is a creamy, smooth beer. The Swimmin’ Cow is amber-brown in color, with a fair bit of maltiness and a moderate body. The rye character comes out, with a definite creaminess and a hint of grain. The beer is moderately bitter, with a little hop flavor and medium aroma. The finish is very creamy, with a foamy, crisp head due to nitrogenation. Expect to see it in late summer or early fall.

Dacker (6.2% ABV)

dackerDacker is a heavily-modified Scotch ale that morphed into a completely different style after four generations of being brewed in the Adirondacks. At present, it is similar to a Scotch ale, with a stronger hop presence and correspondingly less maltiness. A very flavorful beer with definite subtle points.

It’ll teach you something new every time you take a drink.

Sagamore (5.9% ABV)

sagamoreSagamore – Our Sagamore ale is a passport to another time. Glass in hand you’ll be transported to days of yore on Green Island. The buzz of now is diffused by the allure of summer nights with Lake George lapping at your feet and the greatest challenge being whether to don flip flops for dinner or throw back another Sagamore Ale.
