Superb IPA – American IPA – 6.3%

Dry-hopped with Amarillo, Citra and Simcoe hops, notes of tropical fruit abound, particularly mango and passion fruit. The hop presence provides complexity, but it is still soft on the palate.

Weekend Lager – Munich-Style Helles Lager – 4.8%

Made in the Munich Helles style and unfiltered like all our beer. It’s a little spicy, wholly smooth and super drinkable.

Tavern Brown Ale – American Brown Ale – 5.7%

We’ve brewed Tavern Brown Ale since we started in 2006. This approachable, yet still complex, American Brown ale has aromas of toasted coffee, followed by flavors of nuts, caramel and a touch of chocolate. The finish is warm with a hint of citrus.

Protocol Porter – Robust Porter – 5.6%

This robust porter is boldly American, and big in all the right places. Look for notes of roasted coffee and toasted cocoa.

Chesapeake Pale Ale – American Pale Ale – 5.6%

Chesapeake Pale Ale features a bright, floral aroma and flavor thanks to Cascade, Chinook, Amarillo and Centennial hops, used with a heavy hand in both the brewing and dry-hop process. For 16 years, Chesapeake Pale Ale has been celebrating the integral role its namesake estuary plays in our community. Today, portions of sales proceeds support the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay.

Anywhere IPA

Juicy hops first greet the nose and mouth with every sip of Anywhere IPA. Mango and pineapple with hints of grapefruit and orange piggyback on just a touch of caramel malt to give a full spectrum of IPA flavors.

Shortcake – Strawberry Blonde Ale – 7%

 A rich blonde ale brewed with strawberries and milk sugar. Biscuit aromas and delicately candied flavors create a satisfyingly smooth experience

Tangerine – Wheat Ale – 5.6%

This refreshing beer showcases the creamy body of a wheat ale enhanced by the addition of tangerine. Bright notes of citrus on the nose and palate complement this easy-drinking brew that was designed for long summer days

Availability: May – July

Pumpkin – Spiced Ale – 7.3% 

Pumpkin is made solely with fresh ingredients, spiced and baked in the oven before being added to the brew. Enjoy powerful notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, and more from this world-famous beer commonly described as “Pumpkin Pie in a glass

Availability: August – October

Coffeehouse – Coffee Stout – 5.4%

This Milk Stout is brewed with a generous amount of locally-roasted Guatemala Antigua coffee. There’s a noticeably sweet character but we don’t shy away from the coffee’s bitter nature. It’s the coffee drinker’s coffee stout

Availability: November – January
