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. See why England loves their Brown Ales?
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
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 Peanut Butter.
Seasonal Distributed Beers

Taproom Series #20 IPA
“Down Under Dude”
This is a “Down Under” liquid fruit salad, a perfect compliment for food fresh off the barbie! Flavors of Lime, Kiwi, and lychee from “Down Under” hops of Motueka, and Wai Iti, complimented by some west coast Azacca hops, dude! The beer has the mouthfeel and flavors that you come expect from our double IPAs – creamy, pillowy, JOOSE with no astringency. This is a ripper you can’t get at a servo! (This is a great beer you can’t get at a gas station)

picture day ipa #11

picture day ipa #12
A beautiful NEIPA that features Mosaic, Motueka, El Dorado and cryo Simcoe dry hops. It’s everything you expect in a great NEIPA, hazy, juicy, and great mouthfeel. The smooth, lingering hop flavors will keep you coming back for more!
(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!
A Joint Effort To Create Premium Craft Beer
“I Am Serious, But Don’t Call Me Shirley”
This Shirley Temple-inspired was made in collaboration with BMT Restaurant Group (and available at Junior’s Bar & Grill, North Greenbush, Madison Pour House, and soon Albany Ale & Oyster) and offers all the taste of a Shirley Temple without being too sweet. Made with loads of Pommegranate puree and orange (sans loads of sugar found in grenadine), with a splash of ginger, key lime and lemon.
We got our inspiration from a “kiddie cocktail” but ours is made for adults. We didn’t put in red dye, or a cherry, and it has alcohol, so “Don’t call me Shirley!” Draft and growler fills only.
Candy Inspired Sours: Rolly Jancher
Our first candy inspired sour; we used a touch more lactose than normal to enhance the sweetness.
Just like candies, everyone has a favorite.
What’s your fav?
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.
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.
Made with our “She’s Tert” sour base and fresh blackberry concentrate (puree with a lot less water), and a touch of organic lemon oil to meld the flavors together in a beautiful sour beer.
Tart and crisp Granny Smith apple flavors, similar to hard cider flavors, only with a wee bit of malt flavor in the background.
Available on draft, growlers, and 4 packs.
She's Tert with
We cuveed our She’s Tert sour base with Prickly Pear and Pink Guava from Puree Arete in Catskill, NY. A sweet and tropical wave of flavor with a tart finish at 4% ABV. Both fruits come together like you’re on the beach wearing a Hawaiian shirt sipping an “adult” version of juice from a Dole fruit cup.
Barrel Aged Releases
Whiskey Barrel Aged
Whole Lotta Trouble
Our award winning Belgian Quad barrel aged in Whiskey barrels for over 5 months. Exceptionally complex with fig, cherry, tobacco, chocolate, and whiskey notes. Strike the sentence “Drink one now but cellar another bottle, as this will age exceptionally well.”
Fruited Beer 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?
See the splash page for current offerings!
Made with our Belgian Wit as the base beer, then seconday fermented with over 200 pounds of all natural Raspberry puree from our friends at Puree Areté (Catskill, NY). A great balance of raspberry flavors and mild tartness, without coming across as sweet or overpowering. Refreshing and crushable for any weather.
Our Belgian Wit with a massive amount of freshly picked Blueberry flavors and aromas. For this years batch, we used all-natural Blueberry Concentrate from our friends at Puree Arete’ in Catskill, NY. We used concentrate so we wouldn’t dilute the beer with all the water found in fresh blueberries or puree, allowing us to optimize the blueberry flavors and aromas. We would have needed over 600 lbs of freshly picked blueberries to equal what we used in concentrate, so long story short – If you like blueberries, you’re in for a treat with our Bluleberry in the Glasses Wit!
Made with our Belgian Wit as the base beer, then seconday fermented with over 240 pounds of all natural Blackberry puree from our friends at Puree Areté (Catskill, NY). A very mild tartness, and gentle berry flavor without coming across as sweet or overpowering, compliments the wit base quite nicely. Refreshing and crushable for any weather.
A blast from the past
Light and crisp ale with muted fruity tones. Featuring 100 % grown NYS Pilsner malt and Newport hops, this German inspired Kölsch will be sure to please!
