Seltz Out: Pink Lemonade – 4.5% ABV ($3.25/6.5 – 7/14oz Pour): Transport to summer days by the pool with this lightly sweet and perfectly tart pink lemonade seltzer! Think Country Time Pink Lemonade but fizzy – and alcoholic!

Bottle White– Helles Lager – 4.6% ABV ($3.25/6.5 – 7/14oz Pour): While we brewed this lager with German Pilsner malt and German hops, it is not a traditional German-inspired Helles. We added wheat malt for a rounder malt flavor. The hopping is restrained, but we selected Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon for a brighter aroma to compliment the clean fermentation. Traditionally brewed, but not traditional! Order 4-pack/$16

Machin Shinᴳ – Schwarzbier – 5.0% ABV ($6.5 – 16oz CAN): Tomatoes aren’t native to Italy. Chile peppers don’t originally come from India. Maris Otter isn’t a German barley… sometimes ingredients and techniques from unexpected places are required to create the flavor we are looking for! This dark lager has a wonderful bready flavor thanks to the blend of German and English base malts, along with the espresso-like char of German roasted barley. Lagered cold for a clean background that lets the grain shine! Order 4-pack/$16

Growing Season Cherry (2022) – Kriek – 5.2% ABV ($18 – 500mL BOTTLE): This series is our canvas for Mid-Atlantic fruit harvested during the annual growing season. This entry combines sweet Hartland cherries from Milburn Orchards (Elkton, MD) and sour cherries from Baugher’s Orchard (Westminster, MD). For the base, we blended two barrels of pale sour aged 18 months in wine barrels. The result has a broad expression of cherry with a tart jammy flavor alongside herbal aromatics. Order 500 mL Bottle/$16

New Zealand Hazeon – 5.5% ABV ($3.75/7.5): This batch of our House Saison got a mix of grains (barley, spelt, and quinoa) our house Brettanomyces blend and then a dry hop dose of experimental NZ102 before keg conditioning for six months!

Driftmarkᴳ – English Oatmeal Porter – 6.0% ABV ($6.5 – 16oz CAN): We created a porter with all of the with toasty, bready, and cocoa notes of the English originals… but suped-up to a modern American flavor intensity and body. To do that we used English malts including Maris Otter, Amber, Brown, and Chocolate along with a hearty addition of oats. It’s the sort of beer we reach for when the weather turns cold! Order 4-pack/$17

Cosmic Ringsᴳ – Citra Pale Ale – 6.0% ABV ($3.25/6.5 – 7/14oz Pour): Rings of Light was our first and one of our favorite hoppy beers. We use every trick in our brewing arsenal to saturate it with tropical, citrusy, and melony Citra hop aromatics. But what if we could make those tropical notes even more “out of this world”? Bolstered with a yeast strain that lays down a ripe passionfruit-like backdrop and augmented with a higher hopping rate, we’re ready to take Rings into the stratosphere! Order 4-pack/$18

Grapefruit Ringsᴳ – Citrus Pale Ale – 6.0% ABV ($6.50 – 16oz CAN): We took our favorite pale ale (Rings of Light) with its intense Citra®-forward hop aroma of melon and orange and added the fresh zest of more than 100 grapefruits! Usually, the government won’t let us call our pale ales “citrusy,” but they can’t stop us when there is actual citrus in it! Order 4-pack/$18

Field Learning (Bissell Brothers Collab) – Wine-Influenced Sour – 6.3% ABV ($18 – 500mL BOTTLE): Brewed with Phantasm (New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc powder), then soured in Sauvignon Blanc barrels with a house culture from our friends at Bissell Brothers (Portland, ME) for deeper vinous flavor and acidity. Finally, refermented on 300 lbs of Maryland Chardonnay grapes for fresh juicy white grape flavor! Order 500 mL Bottle/$16

Growing Season: Cherry (2020) – Kriek – 6.7% ABV ($20 – 500mL BOTTLE): This series is our canvas for Mid-Atlantic fruit harvested during the annual growing season. This first entry combines sweet Hartland and sour cherries from Milburn Orchards (Elkton, MD). For the base, we blended three batches of pale and golden sours aged between 13-19 months in wine barrels. The result has a broad expression of cherry with a tart jammy flavor alongside herbal aromatics. IN HOUSE ONLY

Shopper Gatherer – Barrel-Aged Cider – 6.9% ABV ($13 – 500mL BOTTLE): A blend of two batches of cider pressed from Virginia-grown Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, York, and Ida Red apples. One-third aged in a Sauvignon Blanc barrel for nine months, two-third in stainless steel. The result is tart and snappy, with a bright apple-forward aroma followed by some earthiness and vanilla from the oak. Order 500 mL Bottle/$11

Applied Research – Experimental Hazy IPA – 7% ABV ($3.75/7.5 – 7/14 oz Pours): This IPA uses a new R&D product from our friends at Freestyle Hops: SubZero Hop Kief. It concentrates all of the aromatic lupulin from Motueka hops without any of the “green” material. The result is an even bolder hop aroma, with less of the harshness that comes from ever-higher dry hopping rates! We paired it with balancing additions of Phantasm (for tropical fruit notes) and Mosaic (for dank herbaceousness)! Order 4-pack/$19

Cheater Hops #23 – Hazy IPA – 7.3% ABV ($7.50 – 16oz CAN): This one is about balance! Mosaic hops contribute berry and dank aromatics, so we brightened it up with a squeeze of Cashmere! We love the lemongrass and honeydew notes of this overlooked American hop variety. The result is a bright and lively fruitiness, with herbal notes adding depth and complexity! Order 4-pack/$19

Unrefinery – Export Stout – 7.5% ABV ($3.75/7.50 – 7/14oz Pours): There is a stout for every season and a stout for every region! This one is inspired by the versions you find in the Caribbean. We added unrefined cane sugar to the kettle. The molasses notes from the muscovado add savory sophistication to the raisin-plum of Belgian Special B malt, and mocha roast of German Chocolate malt. The result is a stronger-sweeter stout that is a notch below “Imperial,” but bigger and creamier than the run-of-the-(sugar)-mill! Order 4-pack/$18

Orange Lime Sorbet – Citrus Vanilla IPA – 7.6% ABV ($4.25/8.5 – 7/14 oz Pours): This Double IPA was already citrusy from the hops and creamy from the oats, then we took it over-the-top with the zest of more than 100 Cara Cara oranges, punchy lime zest, plus a bunch of vanilla beans. The result is a big citrus aroma, paired with the creaminess of vanilla. Milkshake-ish, without the lactose. Order 4-pack/$21

Elliptical Orbit 2022 – Barrel-Aged Harvest Sour Brown – 7.7% ABV ($18 – 500mL BOTTLE): This Fourth iteration of Elliptical Orbit is our spin on a fall harvest beer! With the deep flavor of roasted honeynut squash, the earthiness of a mixed-culture fermentation in oak, and just a touch of warming fall spices. Order 500 mL Bottle/$16

Elliptical Orbit VINTAGE Bottles – ($20) 500 mL Bottles: In House ONLY

Elliptical Orbit 2019Dark Sour Ale Aged in Red Wine Barrels with Zante Currants and Dates Added

Elliptical Orbit 2020Dark Sour Ale Aged in Red Wine Barrels with Figs Added

Elliptical Orbit 2021Dark Sour Ale Aged in Red Wine Barrels with Rosemary and Orange Zest Added

Cherries Blacker – Black Kriek – 8.0% ABV ($18 – 500mL BOTTLE): We soured this stout in Bourbon and Pinot Noir barrels. After a year of aging, we transferred it onto dark Hartland and pale Rainier cherries from Milburn Orchards (Elkton, MD). The result of blending the barrels and cherries results in a surprisingly restrained balance. The dark malt provides toasty-chocolate aromatics to compliment the vanillin from the charred American oak. The cherries enhance the dark fruitiness provided by the wine barrel and mixed culture. It’s tart, but with enough sweetness to counter the fruit and roast. In House Only

The Quiet Parts Loud – Simcoe DIPA – 8.0% ABV ($4.25/8.5 – 7/14oz Pours): For some reason we always seem to be adding Simcoe to our IPAs, but rarely to our DIPAs! We wanted to change that by showcasing the intense mango and pine notes of Simcoe and Simcoe Cryo in this batch. Simcoe was the variety that really kicked off the modern American IPA when it was released in 2000, before Citra and Mosaic were introduced a few years later. Here’s to Simcoe on its 23rd birthday! Order 4-pack/$21

Conspiratorial Tone – Weizenbock – 8.3% ABV ($4.25/8.50 – 7/14oz Pours): German wheat beers tend to be pale and refreshing… but that isn’t always the case. Weizenbocks aren’t as easy to spot as Hefeweizens, but if you look for them it is worth the effort! We brewed this version with bready German Munich and Vienna malts, and both light and dark wheat malts, and hopped with German Tettnang for a subtle balancing bitterness. We can-conditioned it for higher carbonation and more aging potential! Order 4-pack/$19

Measure Twice – Barrel-Aged Funky Pale – 8.4% ABV ($18 – 500mL BOTTLE): We refilled a couple barrels from Growth Rings with Full Measure (our all Nelson Sauvin Extra Pale Ale). The microbes went to work transforming the hop compounds into unique orange and spice aromatics. After more than a year, the lightly-tart, uniquely-fruity beer emerged. We gave it a dry hop dose a fresh Nelson and Riwaka right before packaging to ensure a unique aroma that blends the best of mixed-ferm and IPA! Order 500 mL Bottle/$16

Order to Chaos #2 (2022) – Barrel Aged Dark Sour 9.2% ABV ($19 – 500mL BOTTLE): This is a blend of sour red ale aged in Pinot Noir barrels for 20 months and a stout aged in Double Oak Bourbon barrels for 9 months. The sweetness from the stout balances the assertive acidity from the red. Roast and red fruit mingle into a… sour stout or is it a Flanders black? Order 500 mL Bottle/$17

Taunting Fate (Fiden’s Brewing Collab) – Hawaiian Imperial Stout 10.0% ABV ($4.25/8.5 – 5/10 oz Pour): When the weather gets cold in Maryland and New York, we want an all-inclusive tropical vacation (in a glass if we can’t leave the brewery)! We infused this thick stout with 100 lbs of coconut (toasted and untoasted), 180 lbs of macadamia nuts, and a double-dose of Vigilante Coffee’s Rafael Amaya from Columbia. The result is bright red fruit and mocha on the nose, with the toasty richness of the coconut and nuts on the palate. Order 500 mL Bottle/$12

Timestream – Imperial Stout 10.0% ABV ($12 – 500mL BOTTLE):
Even when we aren’t barrel-aging a stout, we still like to give it some time before release. We pushed the syrupy body and mouthfeel further than we have for any other stouts. Most of the balancing bitterness to that sweetness is provided by a combination of German and English roasted grain, bringing flavors of 80% dark chocolate, espresso beans, and caramel. Order 500 mL Bottle/$10

Flaked (2022) – Imperial Oatmeal Stout with Coconut and Vanilla Added  10.0% ABV ($4.25/8.5 – 5/10 oz Pour): A rich dark fudgy beer with mounds of toasted and untoasted flaked coconut and an avalanche of Organic Madagascar vanilla beans to balance the roast. The flavor is enormous thanks to flaked oats and English caramel malt, and the body is syrupy. A dessert treat for the snowy nights ahead! Order 2-pack/$14

There Are No Edges 2022 – Red Wine Barrel Sour Red 10.0% ABV ($20 – 500mL BOTTLE): We selected Pinot Noir and Malbec barrels to age a massive sour red for more than a year. The result, aromas of plum and raisin, caramel flavor, with moderate acidity to balance. Dry, and surprisingly smooth for its heft. It is delicious now, but it will only improve with time. IN HOUSE ONLY

Don’t Call it a Pastry – Cinnamon Mocha Stout 10.0% ABV ($14 – 500mL BOTTLE): Unlike people, not all ingredients are created equal! We selected Vigilante’s El Salvador Las Veraneras coffee beans for the berry-like flavor balancing Joacocoa’s Ecuadorian cacao nibs’ intense fruity dark chocolate aroma. We selected Spice House Saigon Cinnamon for its dessert-like richness while Jones & Company’s Vanuatu vanilla beans bring a complimentary spice. Order 500 mL Bottle/$12

Dreifeld – Sherry Cask Triplebock 11.5% ABV ($5.5/11 – 5/10 oz Pours): We aged this strong-malty lager in a third-hand PX Sherry Cask from our friends at Sagamore Spirit for 15 months. We get caramel, almonds, earthy, and bready notes… sweet, but not too sweet! Order 500 mL Bottle/$20

BSCM – Bourbon Stout Coconut Masala 11.5% ABV ($24 – 500mL BOTTLE): Imperial Stout aged in Wilderness Bourbon and Old Elk Wheated Whiskey barrels with Coconut and Masala Chai (Cardamom, Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Black Pepper, and Vanilla Beans). In House Only 

Old Nails (2021) – 12.2% ABV ($20 – 375mL BOTTLE): Once in a great while we “pull a nail” from a barrel that is so singularly delicious that we can’t improve it. Old Nails is Barrel #46, unblended and uncarbonated. The peculiar base beer was inspired by English Stock Ale and Belgian Oud Bruin. We suggest serving at 50-60°F from a snifter, allowing the aromas of fig from the malt, leather from the house culture, and oak to fill your nose. The balance of mild acidity, caramel sweetness, and red fruit on the palate isn’t quite likely any other beer we’ve tasted! IN HOUSE ONLY

Older Nails – 12.2% ABV ($18 – 375mL BOTTLE): In April 2020 we emptied two bourbon barrels of their resident Imperial Stouts and refilled them with a peculiar base beer inspired by English Stock Ale and Belgian Oud Bruin. The residual stout adds subtle roast to the aromas of fig from the malt, leather from the house culture, and vanilla from the oak. We suggest serving at 50-60°F from a snifter, to accentuate the balance of mild acidity, caramel sweetness, and red fruitiness. Order 375 mL Bottle/$16
