    Jutsu

    American Pale Ale

    In life, Jutsu is all about stealthy ninja techniques (well actually, techniques, skills, methods, tricks, or spells according to Wikipedia) but in beer it’s a fantastically balanced pale ale. Easy drinking with low bitterness.

    After experimenting with different yeasts, hops, and grain bills over the course of 5 separate versions in 2015, we've decided on a final recipe (that's a derivation of V.5). The winning combination of pale malts, an expressive Vermont ale yeast, and fruity Simcoe and Citra hops culminate into a perfectly refreshing and bright pale ale. Weighing in at a cool 5.6%, it is quite easily the answer to a) your prayers, and b) the question, “What should I have to drink right now?”.

    Jutsu is brewed with East coast American styles in mind, so it's hazy! We utilize yeasts that remain suspended throughout (much like a hefeweizen) so expect a cloudy, juicy, aromatic beer.

  • Witchshark Label

    Witchshark

    Imperial India Pale Ale (IIPA)

    Named after the elusive creature with the head of a shark and the body of a boy that first swooped in on a broom during construction of the brew pub, this imperial IPA can elevate a bad day to good. The Witchshark is shy and mischievous, but once you let him into your heart you’ll see why this intense brew is such a popular one.

  • Roman Candle Label

    Roman Candle

    India Pale Ale

    If you're looking for a perfect, no-nonsense hoppy American IPA, this is your jam. It provides you with all the excitement of a real roman candle, but without the common risks associated with pyrotechnics. If Roman Candle was a person, it would be the sort that brings home dinner and a movie, and then asks you if you want a massage. If you ask me, I think this is as good as it gets, but you probably weren't gonna ask me, and I do work here, so, take it as you will.
