Poor Richard's Spruce Ale
Based on Benjamin Franklin’s original recipe, this one-of-a-kind deep amber ale calls for barley, molasses and essence of spruce. Locally sourced organic blue spruce clippings are steeped in a kettle to create an ale as approachable and engaging as the man himself.
Recluse Brown Ale
coffee and chocolate
Malty and smooth Brown Ale
Our brewers have poured their hearts and roasted malts into this rich, well-rounded stout. Luscious notes of coffee and chocolate accent Love Stout's smooth, creamy mouth feel.
Jefferson's Golden Ale
This complex golden ale pays homage to our Founding Father and fellow brewer, Thomas Jefferson. We recreated his recipe, employing honey, rye and wheat, just like the beer brewed at Monticello during Jefferson’s time.
Philadelphia Pale Ale
Not to be boastful, but we believe that all other ales pale in comparison to this Philadelphia favorite. Dry-hopped with an abundance of distinctive Simcoe hops, this straw-colored pale ale is more drinkable than bitter, more aromatic than aggressive.
Crafted in the style of an English mild, this malt-forward ale is great when you want to go a few rounds. Its smooth character, hints of caramel and toast and remarkable drinkability define this ruby-colored brew as a knockout session ale.
Our Signature IPA
Our Signature IPA is loaded through and through with assertive American hops. Traditional floor-malted English barley gives IPA its firm malt character while generous amounts of Chinook and Amarillo hops impart aromas of pine and tangerine for a perfectly balanced IPA.
Detailed in a letter from the General to his officers during the war, Washington’s recipe employed molasses to aid fermentation and give rich caramel aroma to this robust, roasty ale. The recipe reflected his admiration for Philadelphia-style porters, especially those brewed by Robert Hare. Our Porter, inspired by Washington’s, is dark, smooth and complex with just a hint of dried fruit in the finish.
aged in chardonnay barrels
Each sip of PYNK starts with a crisp, fruity zing and finishes refreshingly dry. The delightful pink hue comes from heaps of fresh raspberries and cherries in every batch.
Our first-ever and most-beloved brew, ESA helped establish a following for cask-conditioned beer in the United States back in the ‘90s. East Kent Golding hops give this British-inspired ale a subtle spiciness, which complements the strong malt backbone. ESA is floral, earthy and smooth with hints of chocolate and caramel, rounding out this deep chestnut-colored ale.
