9/1 The Sour Scotsman
9/8 Dijon Saison
9/15 Marshmallow Stout
9/22 Trinidad Pepper IPA
9/29 The VPB Rauchbier
 

A Bavarian style, sour-mashed Weissbier. A special yeast strain creates subtle banana and clove flavors for this light, thirst quenching, authentic wheat beer.

 
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.
 
 
A slightly caramel, medium bodied smooth Irish Red Ale. Rich, creamy and mellow. A VPB favorite for 25 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!
 
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. A Pub favorite for over 18 years!
 
 

This world class Double IPA was the brainchild of Master Brewer, Russ FitzPatrick. A big, hearty, malty body stands up to the variety of specially selected hops. A big, aromatic, bitter and balanced beer. Clark Kent would not like this but, Superman would... 8% ABV

 
A light, refreshing fruit beer fremented with over 500 pounds of real raspberries! At 6.2% ABV it is in the early reaches of the strong biére category! This ruby red, sour mashed and oak aged weiss beer is for everyone. Maybe some oak, cherry and vanilla come through? Try mixing it with our currently offered stout, on tap. It is real, it is right and it works. The freshest framboise on tap in town, no question.
 
 

A classic foreign Extra Dry Stout, brewed to be roasty and dry but with a mouthfeel that holds up to the flavor intensity. Wisely infused with nitrogen for a creamy mouthfeel. You don't have to be smart to drink this beer, but we certainly appreciate a sense of humor!

 

An American style lager.  Light and clean.  Low hop bitterness and hop flavors with subtle toasted malt finish.  4.0% Abv 12 IBU 3 SRM

 
 

A Flemish Style Vermont Sour Red Ale fermented with brettanomyces yeast providing slight tartness with barnyard aromas and flavors. This recipe was the result of the collaborative efforts of VPB brewers both past and present in honor of their mentor and Master Brewer, Greg Noonan. The name (Toolah - Leez) comes from county Cork in Ireland where the Noonan clan originated. 6.1% ABV. Hits the style.

Raise one to Greg...
