On TapUpdated On: 11/23/2015
MAINE - Rob Tod's interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer, Allagash White is brewed with a generous portion of wheat and a special blend of spices, this beer is light and slightly cloudy in appearance, with a spicy aroma. Overall, it is a beer that is very drinkable and smooth any time of the year.
BELGIUM - Yep, you red the correctly...Chimay Red is now available on draft. I have not tasted this on draft yet, but expect nothing less than stellar beer from this Trappist Monastery. This is a Double with the requisite malty notes, but with an herbally/spicy finish.
De Molen Cease & Desist
NETHERLANDS - Russian Imperial Stout. Dark as a moonless night. Notes of bittersweet chocolate & dark fruit. 10% abv
BELGIUM - A triple in style. The young drinkers just love the pink elephant logo
DeMolen Cease & Desist
NETHERLANDS - Originally named Rasputin, but North Coast Brewery sued over the use of "their" name. Menno named it "Disputin" for a batch or two. Now named Cease & Desist. Russian Imperial stout with a ton of dark roasted malt. Full body. Dark as a moonless night. Notes of bittersweet chocolate and dark fruit. Os so very good. 10.7%abv
Dupont Avec les Bon Voeux
2012 vintage. This Super Saison ages well. Arguably the best Holiday Ale made in Belgium. A bit of citrus in the finish. lots of dried fruit in the taste. Medium to full body. Hops in taste & finish. Such a great balance. Dry finish.

VERMONT - American ale with Citra & amarillo 5%abv
Hill Farmstead Dorothy

And yes...I'm voting Bernie Sanders for President. No corporate ties.
GERMANY - Concentrated malt flavors and aromas. Sort of a demi-glace of a beer - a beer reduction. 9.2%abv
BELGIUM - (Spiced Golden Ale) Brewed in the Ardennes Mountains by the whacky Chris Bauweraerts. This is a strong, golden ale with a healthy addition of coriander, unfiltered and not pasteurized. Fruit in the nose. Medium body. Really good year-round ale. 8%abv
Lost Abbey Devotion
CALIFORNIA - Originally brewed for Monk's Café's 10th Anniversary. This is now a year round beer for them. This was inspired by Tomme & Tom sharing a bottle of Westvleteren Blonde at Monk's. We loved the low-ish alcohol and fresh hop character. Tomme did a great job capturing the spirit of that beer.
Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale
BELGIUM - That's right, our own private label brewed for us by the family-owned Van Steenberge brewery, just outside Ghent, Belgium. Medium body, red color, somewhat fruity nose, malt flavor with a slight lactic taste. Great Stuff! A real thirst quencher and palate cleanser.
New Belgium Fat Tire
COLORADO - Brabant-style, amber ale. Very quaffable 5.2%abv.
Russian River Damnation
CALIFORNIA - blonde ale influenced by Duvel. Great aromas of banana and pear. Medium body with flavors of pale roasted malt and spice from the hops. hops in the finish give it a crisp, dry finish
A 12% strong ale. Bronze color. Full body. Called "Bush de Noel" in Belgium. Dry hopped four weeks before bottling. Sweet taste, but a nice dry finish.
Sierra Nevada Torpedo
CALIFORNIA - This IPA goes through a unique, custom-made hopback. It's shaped like a torpedo and really imparts a ton of aroma into this hoppy ale. Quaffable, yet powerful. 7.2%abv
THC Tropical & Juicy
CALIFORNIA - The Hop Concept is Tomme Arthur’s third line of beers. This is an IPA made with grapefruit juice. Can’t wait to taste this
FRANCE - Danny makes a different version each year. This is a blonde ale with who knows what added. 5.8%abv
BELGIUM- Pierre Tilquin opened his Gueuzerie a few years ago. We were lucky enough to debut his lambic in the US - actually the first time it was poured outside of Belgium. Pierre's draft version differs a bit from his bottle conditioned version, but it is equally complex and very quaffable.
Tired Hands SaisonHands
ARDMORE, PA - classic farmhouse ale brewed with four grains – malted barley, oats, rye and wheat. It really tastes like I should be drink this on a farm. Freshly cracked black pepper in the finish along with a citrus note from the hops. 4.8%abv
BELGIUM - Traditional Belgian Tripel that is a tad drier in the finish than is Chimay. This is Keith's, one of our chefs, favorite beer.
Coming Soon...Chimay Triple ( aka Cinq Cent )
BELGIUM - Rich, spicy blonde triple, dry herbaceous finish. Brewed on the grounds of a Trappist Monastary (in the Ardennes Mtns). The hoppiest of their three offerings. Since 1862 the Cistercian Trappist monks of Chimay have been developing the production of Trappist beers (and cheeses!).
Corsendonk Christmas Ale
BELGIUM - Malt & spice dominate the nose. Spices are well integrated into the beer - this is NOT one of those "pumpkin pie in a glass" beer. This is really, really tasty. A bit of 'root beer', coffee & chocolate in the finish. Medium body. Deep amber color. A staff favorite
Petrus Aged Pale Ale
BELGIUM - This is a staff favorite in bottle. This beer is aged 18 months in oak barrels, which provides the sour note this beer exhibits. Kegs of this are a real treat. Both refreshing and bracing.
Hill Farmstead Excursions #1
VERMONT - American IPA with an experimental hop #01210, along with Citra & Amarillo hops. Shaun says it has a “citrusy, lemony and slightly resinous flavor”. 6.25% abv
