Bombay Grab IPA
A big, bitter 77 IBU India Pale Ale, spiced with a blend of fragrant Magnum, Simcoe, and Cascade hops. An American IPA receipe designed by our late Brewmaster, Greg Noonan. He said that he wanted this to represent the American style IPAs being brewed by the creative brewers using todays malt and hop varieties. One of the original "East Coast IPA's."
5.5% ABV 77 IBU 6 SRM
A Berliner Weisse styled low-alcohol sour wheat beer. A very sour, very pale and light bodied ale with a refreshingly dry and tart finish. This beer is a tribute to Fred Cormier of Hopfenstark Brasserie in Montreal in an effort to replicate his most incredible, low alcohol Berlinerweiss that he has brought to the Vermont Brewers Festival over the last three years. We tip our cap to Fred and hope that you will enjoy our latest attempt to honor a great Master Brewer.

Burly Irish Ale
A slightly caramel, medium bodied smooth Irish Red Ale. Rich, creamy and mellow. A VPB favorite for 26 years! Designed to be a session ale at 4.2% ABV. Very lightly hopped to enhance the appeal for the masses. A true crowd pleaser. We have proudly served over a half million pints of this popular ale to our loyal customers!
4.2% ABV 17 IBU 12 SRM
A classic, well balanced ESB brewed with traditional East Kent Golding and Fuggles hops. There is a big, fierce, earthy hop bite complemeted by a well rounded, flavorful and malty body. A very bright beer with a rich, deep amber appearance. Try it. You'll like it. A Pub favorite for over 20 years!
5.4%ABV 40 IBU 8.5 SRM
Grand Slam Baseball Beer
A light-bodied American pale ale dry-hopped with ALL Vermont Nugget hops. This was the brainchild of Greg Noonan. He had said, privately, that he felt that he had nailed the style for what he had planned and hoped for. As a side note, the inspiration for the name of this beer came from an 8 year old girl named Jenny, about 27 years ago! The name stuck and style stuck. Go figure. Enjoy this light, summer ale while watching your favorite team play!
