HERE ARE A FEW OF THE BREWS THAT WE HAVE CREATED SO FAR...

Named for the harmless denizen of French Creek!
 Goes great with crayfish!

Aptly named for the President & head beer tester - Mary (Minnie) Sprague

The Rust Belt renaissance begins with your first taste!


Here's a clue what the alphabet's all about....

IBU's = International Bitterness Units

ABV = Alcohol by Volume

IPA = India Pale Ale

 

A Belgian Style Farmhouse Ale which includes amber rock candy and maple syrup in the brewing process.

A drier finish with just 
a little more "zap"!

This is the beer you want in your face.

The Bock beer with some Kick!

Bountiful Harvest with this ale made with chestnuts, pumpkin, Indian Corn and our own "home-grown" hops

Made with 100 lbs of black raspberries.
Beerish AND berryish in taste.  5% ABV

Subtle...but aggressive!  

An Imperial IPA 

Mug Tippin’ Smooth Sippin’ Neon Silo Kinda Stout

This stout was a major collaboration of untamed brewing ideas, and we are very happy with how it came out. It has a balanced blend of ingredients that allows for a wonderful taste with a velvety smooth finish. It was fermented in bourbon vanilla beans and then brown sugar was added to the batch to give it a wonderful sweet/roasted tone. 

Effin' Beer
We made this "Heffe Dunkel Weizen" to celebrate spring of 2007 in Northwestern PA.  We know what happened to spring...and found the " Dunkel Weizen" label a bit lengthy.  So we decided to morph the name to fit the most often utilized adjective describing April 2007's wonderful weather!

 

To quote Ben Franklin, "In Beer there is freedom, in wine wisdom, in water there is bacteria." In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia Coli (E. Coli), a bacteria found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop. However, we do not run that risk when drinking beer or wine because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering, and fermenting, etc.

Remember:  Water = POOP Beer = FREEDOM   Wine = WISDOM.  Therefore, it's better to drink beer or wine and talk stupid than to drink water and be full of shit.
