Year Round & Distributed Beer
DAILY DOUBLE IPA
DDH Double IPA
Hazy, super juicy double India Pale Ale abound with flavors of citrus, apricot, melon and tangerines. Double dry hopped (DDH) with Citra, Rakau, and Michigan Copper hops.
Smooth classic brown ale with a hint of dark chocolate malt flavors. We engineer our water to match London’s water chemistry.
White in the Glasses
Unfiltered, pale and cloudy due to the high level of wheat used in the mash. Lightly spiced with coriander and orange peel, delightfully light yet full flavored.
Smooth Citrus flavors complimented with notes of fresh melon and stone fruit, plus hints of wild blueberries. The brewers adjusted hop techniques, amounts, and the water chemistry to make a single IPA taste as hop saturated, and have a mouthfeel you would expect from a double IPA. Exceptionally smooth and balanced bitterness, without being astringent.
Special Release Stouts
Raspberry Chocolate Lava Cake
A pastry stout named after the delectable dessert, the brewers made a “big” stout and aged it over a huge bed of Peruvian Cacao nibs from Primo Botánica (Troy, NY), then secondary fermented with fresh raspberry puree and organic vanilla. The flavors are immense and the body is intentionally heavy, but because it isn’t overly cloying, you won’t fill up after one beer. Contains lactose.
Multiple Infinities Peanut Butter Chocolate Stout
Peanut Butter and Chocolate? Yes, please! We took our delicious “Multiple Infinities” Stout and added some peanut buttery goodness for a beer that’s out of this world! Made with ample amounts of Primo Botánica (Troy, NY) Alto Huayabamba Peruvian Cacao Nibs.
Totes McGoates White Chocolate Cookie Stouts
Whole grain malted and flaked oats, pale ale malts, and lactose yield a great base beer to which we added copious amounts of Primo Botánica hand selected, sustainably grown Cacao nibs. Aged with organic vanilla to bolster the white chocolate flavor and a add super smooth mouth feel. And last but not least, we collaborated with Nomad Coffee & Crepes to add in a blend of Brazilian and Burundi beans that make an amazing flavor!
Rotating Fruited Wit Series
We use our White in the Glasses ingredients, but instead of putting in spices, we put in fruit puree to make a variety of tasty wheat beers. Blackberry, Peach, Raspberry, Passion Fruit, and soon fruit puree blends are used to create very refreshing, natural fruit flavored wheat beer! What will the brewers do this month?
Touch O’ Crunch
Touch O’ Crunch is a lightly spiced red ale with a deep red color. Balanced with a malt backbone, mild holiday spice flavors, and notes of chocolate and vanilla. This unique red ale was brewed with all-natural nutmeg, clove, orange peel, and everyone’s favorite cinnamon square cereal. It’s a seasonal beer that is meant to be savored on a chilly day, by a fire, with the ones you love. *Contains Lactose
Whole Lotta Trouble
Our Gold Medal winning Belgian Quad with flavors of anise, cinnamon, brown sugar, raisins, figs and black cherries belies its 10.5% abv. Consume with caution…and enjoy!
Taproom Only Selections
Taproom Series IPA
Our rotating Double IPA series (starting in 2019). The brewers use different ingredients and techniques to make tasty DDH DIPAs. Most often hazy New England Style IPA’s, but not always!
Taproom Series #23
Taproom 23 “Nelson” is an experiment in single dry hopping. The brewers used New Zealand grown Nelson Sauvin hops to single dry hop this Double NEIPA. They also made a slight change to the grain bill this time around. The results: a complex Double NEIPA that is bursting with white grape, gooseberry, and citrus fruit flavors. 8.0% ABV.
Taproom Series #24
A Double NEIPA featuring notes of citrus and stone fruit; specifically tangerine, lemon, lime, and peach. Brewed with honey malt and dry hopped with New Zealand’s Wai-iti, Mosaic, and Germany’s Amarillo hops.
*Contains No Lactose.
Picture Days IPA
Our rotating single IPA series. The brewers use different ingredients and techniques to see make crushable DDH IPAs.
Most often hazy New England Style IPA’s, but not always!
picture day ipa #13
Our brewers wanted to see the flavors they could get by dry hopping with a single superb hop – GALAXY! The result? A single DDH IPA with lots of juice, pineapple and passion fruit notes on the front end, followed by a super smooth hop bitterness that most hops can’t provide (hence Galaxy’s popularity among brewers).
picture day ipa #14
A rare brew this one is. Picture Day “John” is a single NEIPA that sits at an easy drinking 5.9% ABV. It was dry hopped with New Zealand’s Riwaka and Nelson Sauvin hops. While it is hazy like a typical NEIPA, it is not overly juicy. Instead it is balanced, bright, clean, and very floral. It’s like taking a rare walk in a field of New England wild flowers.
(that means: “Totally cool!”)
Our rotating experimental beer that use lots of oats in the grain bill.
Often these beers fall outside of an existing beer style, such as Session Oat IPA, Milk Shake Beer, Creamsicle IPA, etc.
These brews are made at the whim of what the brewers think is a Totes McGoates (totally cool) beer!
We used our Totes McGoates oat beer as the base, then added fruit concentrate (concentrated puree) of Blueberry, Pomegranate, Kiwi, and Cranberry. Had we put puree in this beer, we would have added over 1,000 lbs of fruit puree. To say this is a flavorful beer is an understatement, in fact, the flavors are SUPER!
We begin with our Totes McGoates oat beer base and then add copious amounts of blackberry concentrate, blueberry puree, boysenberry puree, and raspberry puree. It smells like berry jam. It tastes like creamy, sweet, berry juice with a refreshing tartness that will have you coming bbbback for more.
A Joint Effort To Create Premium Craft Beer
Flavors of juicy citrus fruits abound in this crushable Hazy single NEIPA featuring Mosaic, Citra, and Michigan Copper hops. Brewed in collaboration with the Lanzi family restaurants: Lanzi’s on the Lake, Lakeside Tavern, Sport Island Pub, Partner’s Pub, and soon Lorenzo’s Southside.
Flavors of juicy citrus fruits abound in this crushable hazy JOOSEY New England Style Double IPA featuring a magnificent combination of Mosaic, Citra, and Michigan Copper hops. This has much of the original GSL Juice recipe, but the brewers amped up the ABV, plus they did a bunch of tricks to get a super creamy mouth feel and great JOOSE expression from the hops.
As in the past, this is a beautiful collaboration with the Lanzi family restaurants: Lanzi’s on the Lake, Lakeside Tavern, Sport Island Pub, Partner’s Pub, and Lorenzo’s Southside.
Candy Inspired Sours: Warheads
A wonderful collaboration between Artisanal Brew Works and Impact Confections, makers of Warheads candies.
For this sour, we used our “She’s Tert” sour base but didn’t add any lactose to enhance the pucker power.
Drafts & Cans
She’s Tert Sours
After a year of R&D in 2019, we’ve developed a sour base called “She’s Tert.”
This base is vary tart as the name implies, but is exceptionally clean tasting without an odd off-flavor found in many sours.
The “She’s Tert” sour base alone tastes great, but also lends itself to cuvees in making fantastic fruited sours or SIPAs (Sour IPAs).
With Sour Blackberry Lemon Bar
Imagine a Lemon Bar with some fresh blackberries on top, and a drizzle of fresh blackberry sauce. Now imagine that flavor in a sour beer. 4% ABV of crushable deliciousness.
