DRAGON, WOLF, & FOX

New England IPA - 6.5%

SLOVENIAN-STYLE IPA? In collaboration with Hop Head Farms of Michigan, we proudly present an IPA crafted in the New England style, with generous additions of flaked wheat and oats, but hopped entirely with three imports from Slovenia: Dragon, Wolf, and Fox! Wolf and Fox provide an intriguing background of strawberry, earth, and spice, while a heaping portion of Dragon hops lays in prominent notes of passionfruit and berry.

ACTIVATE!

Coffee Porter - 6.4%

With Activate! we've taken a robust porter and infused it with local coffee, masterfully roasted by Jesse Medley of Union Coffee Roasters (Ayer, MA). 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.

RANSOM NOTE

American Barleywine - 9.0%

Quite strong but rather smooth, this rich amber ale was aggressively hopped in the kettle with Meridian and El Dorado. Firmly bitter, with Patagonian caramel malts in balance with a deceptively gentle alcohol heat. Additionally hopbacked with whole leaf German Mandarina Bavaria.

5 oz. $3 | 12 oz.  $6    ♦  Growler Fills:  32 oz. $9 | 64 oz. $17

DUCHOVNI  

Czech Pilsner - 5.2%

THIS PILS IS OUT THERE. Our rendition of the classic Bohemian-style pilsner, this straw-colored lager is dry, quaffable, and liberally hopped with Czech Saaz for a bit of bite.  An indisputable favorite amongst both the Medusa team and our taproom regulars, Duchovni was awarded the Gold Medal in the 2016 World Beer Cup!

BAD WICKED WORLD

New England Imperial IPA - 7.8%

IMPERIAL INVASION! This New England-style IPA owes its massive charge of tropical, melon, and stonefruit character to a wicked array of hops: Citra, Centennial, Mosaic, and Hull Melon. Flaked wheat, flaked oats, and a fruity, estery yeast strain give it haze for days, alongside a soft, smooth mouthfeel.  

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz.  $7 ♦  Growler Fills:  32 oz. $10 | 64 oz. $19

SLOW DOG

American Brown Ale - 5.6%

THAT DOG IS HERE AGAIN. This sturdy brown ale is relentlessly smooth and full-bodied, with just enough nuance of American hops to keep things interesting. Slow Dog features layers of toasty malt with notes of caramel and chocolate, punctuated with crisp, fruity Centennial and Simcoe hops.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $4 | 16 oz.  $5    ♦   CANS:  $12 / 4-pack | $72 / case

VARLET

Berliner Weisse - 3.5%

Varlet was mashed with a mixture of German pilsner and wheat malts, inoculated with a Lactobacillus culture and allowed to develop acidity overnight in the kettle. The resulting beer is light and refreshing, but quite tart! Also available with the traditional shot of raspberry syrup to help balance the acidity (+$1.00).

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

MOFFAT 80/-

Scottish Export 80-Shilling - 5.0%

BATCH 80085

PINK BOOTS SOCIETY COLLABORATION BREW

SOLO PROJECT: Simcoe

Single Hop American Pale Ale - 5.5%

Each edition of this rotating series of American Pale Ales highlights a single hop.  We begin with a simple grist of Maine-grown 2-Row, malted wheat, and light Patagonian crystal malt for a clean, dry, and highly drinkable body.  An abundant dry-hopping of the featured variety ensures that all the charms and nuances -- be they citrusy, fruity, grassy, or floral -- remain on full display in a quaffable package. This round features American Simcoe, a variety famous for its piney, fruity character.
