CASK SPECIAL: ALBATROSS WITH Topaz

American IPA - 6.5%

The latest in our series of IPAs hopped entirely with southern hemisphere varieties: This round features two hop vaieties from New Zealand, Rakau and Motueka, for a complex blend of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine.  Additionally dry-hopped in the cask with Topaz for an added touch of earthiness, resin, and spice.

DUCHOVNI

Czech Pilsner - 5.4%

2016 World Beer Cup Gold Medal Winner!

Our rendition of a classic Bohemian-style pils. This straw-colored lager is dry, quaffable, and liberally hopped with Czech Saaz for a bit of bite.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $5 | 0.5L $6          Growler Fills: NO GROWLERS

 

VARLET

Berliner Weisse - 3.4%

Varlet was mashed with a mixture of German pilsner and wheat malts, inoculated with a Lactobacillus culture and allowed to develop sourness overnight in the kettle. The resulting beer is light and refreshing, but quite tart!  Or, for a variation popular in Germany, add a shot of raspberry syrup to balance the acidity with a touch of sweetness.

5 oz. $2 | .4L $5 ($6 with raspberry syrup)      Growler Fills:  32 oz. $7 | 64 oz. $13

 

ACTIVATE!

Coffee Porter - 6.8%

With Activate! we've taken a robust porter and infused it with local coffee, masterfully roasted by Jesse Medley of Union Coffee Roasters. Our black ale's rich cocoa and subtle caramel notes provide a lovely base to freshly roasted Burundi, a bourbon varietal described as tart, juicy, with fruity characters of strawberry, blackberry, apricot, lemon, and grapefruit.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $5 | 16 oz.  $6      Growler Fills:  32 oz. $8 | 64 oz. $15

 

LASER KITTEN

Session IPA - 4.5%

The gentler sibling to our outrageous Imperial IPA Laser Cat, LASER KITTEN is an American-style IPA that arrives at session strength.  It still packs plenty of Citra and Mosaic for a citrusy, fruity punch, while the body is kept extra pale, light, and dry to let those hops shine!

5 oz. $2 | 13 oz. $5 | 16 oz.  $6     16 oz. CANS to go:  $14 / 4-pack | $84 / case

 

HIDDEN CITY

American IPA - 7.0%

This hoppy concoction prominently features El Dorado hops, lending distinct tropical , stone fruit character, while Mosaic and Citra provide a solid background of citrus and herbal notes. An American-style IPA brought to you from the hidden gem of Hudson, Massachusetts.

16 oz. CAN POUR  $6     16 oz. CANS to go:  $14 / 4-pack | $84 / case

 

KALI

India Pale Lager - 6.7%

Fermented with a lager strain derived from a California brewing institution, Kali is well-hopped with Chinook, Centennial, Hull Melon and Mandarina Bavaria hops for a fusion of tropical fruit and resinous pine notes, backed up with a firm bitterness.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $5 | 16 oz.  $6      Growler Fills:  32 oz. $8 | 64 oz. $15

 

MAGNUM OPUS

Maibock - 7.0%

The quintessential strong pale lager style of Germany, built from Pilsner and Munich malts and hopped entirely with German Magnum.

SOLO PROJECT: HULL MELON

Single Hop American Pale Ale - 5.5%

Another batch in our single hop Solo Project series of American Pale Ales sees the return of Hull Melon,  a variety from Germany that exhibits unusally prominent aromas of honeydew and strawberry.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $5 | 16 oz.  $6      Growler Fills:  32 oz. $8 | 64 oz. $15

 

Dämmerung

Dunkelweizen - 5.1%

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $5 | .5 L $6       Growler Fills:  32 oz. $8 | 64 oz. $15

 

TRIBUTE ACT

California Common - 5.8%

An homage to the warm-fermented, historic lagers of California. Light amber in color with a touch of caramel and slight fruit esters, and hopped entirely with woody, earthy German Northern Brewer.

5 oz. $2 | 13 oz. $4 | 16 oz.  $5      Growler Fills:  32 oz. $7 | 64 oz. $13

 

BLIGHTY 

English Porter - 6.5%

A classic black ale with notes of coffee and chocolate. Our rendition of Head Brewer Keith Antul’s original collaboration with Wormtown Brewery’s, “Pro-Am Porter.”

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $5 | 16 oz.  $6      Growler Fills:  32 oz. $8 | 64 oz. $15

 

LUMINARY

Cream Ale - 5.8%

A perennial favorite at the Medusa taproom, our cream ale is constructed from a blend of Maine-grown 2-row barley and German Pilsner malts.  Then, true to style, the body is kept light and dry through judicious use of organic brown rice, then delicately hopped with Mandarina Bavaria for a bit of additional nuance.  Delightfully refreshing in warmer weather, Luminary is nonethless profoundly crushable any time of the year!

5 oz. $2 | 13 oz. $4 | 16 oz.  $5     16 oz. CANS to go:  $12 / 4-pack | $72 / case
