CASK SPECIAL: 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. 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

SIMON

Festbier - 5.9%

Our rendition of the popular daily drinker of the modern Oktoberfest, this pale, golden lager carries a hint of toastness from an addition of Barke Vienna malt. Gently hopped with German Opal for a delicate floral character.  

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

HECUBUS

Märzen - 5.9%

For those seeking a fuller-bodied lager, Hecubus follows the path of the tradional amber Marzen, built from a blend of German Pilsner and Munich malts. Hopped with German Merkur, this one has a touch more fruitiness and caramel character, but is still designed to be quite stein-worthy.

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

BADGERWEISS

Hefeweizen - 5.0%

A Bavarian yeast strain gives this light, dry wheat beer its signature spicy clove-like character. Brewed with Light Wheat and Pilsner Malts from Weyermann of Bamberg, Germany. A beer style favored by woodland creatures everywhere.

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

BAD OMEN

Belgian Pale Ale w/Raspberries & Cherries - 7.5%

5 oz. $3 | .4L  $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. $3 | 13 oz. $5 | 16 oz.  $6    ♦   Growler Fills:  32 oz. $8 | 64 oz. $15

 SOFT MACHINE

New England IPA - 6.9%

Medusa's first definitive foray into our region's indigenous style of India Pale Ale, SOFT MACHINE is crafted with Maine-grown 2-Row and an extra-healthy potion of flaked oats and wheat to promote a soft, smooth mouthfeel and that telltale haze. Yeast-driven stonefruit esters are intertwined with vibrant tropical citrus fruit notes from the dry-hopping trifecta of Galaxy, Citra, and Mosaic. Conditioned

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $6 | 16 oz.  $7 ♦ CANS to go:  $16 / 4-pack | $96 / case

 

SOLO PROJECT: MANDARINA BAVARIA

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. MANDARINA BAVARIA features notes of citrus, particularly tangerine, with a delicate herbal background.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $5 | 16 oz.  $6    ♦   CANS to go:  $14 / 4-pack | $84 / case

BAD WICKED WORLD

New England Imperial IPA - 7.8%

This Imperial-strength New England-style IPA owes its massive charge of tropical, melon, and stonefruit character to a trio of hops: Australian Vic Secret, US Mosaic, and German Hull Melon.  Malted wheat, flaked oats, and a fruity, estery yeast strain give it haze for days, alongside a soft, smooth mouthfeel. 

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $8   ♦   Growler Fills:  32 oz. $12 | 64 oz. $23

 

BEACON LIGHT

Brut IPA - 7.0%

Join us for a ride on the bandwagon, as Medusa release its first Brut-style IPA, specifically brewed and fermented to finish with an effervescent, champagne-like dryness.  Hop bitterness has been restrained in favor of a copious dry-hopping of Citra and Amarillo, bestowing a pleasant character of tropical fruit and flowery citrus. 

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

 

LASER CAT

Imperial IPA - 8.0%

Prepare yourself for a cosmic experience with one of the most preposterous IPAs Earth has to offer! Built from New England-grown 2-row malt, German wheat, and Patagonian crystal malts, this concoction is dry-hopped with absurd amounts of Citra and Nugget, and is loaded with plenty of dense citrus, tropical fruit, and herbal notes to assault your hop-loving senses. Enjoy responsibly, Earthlings!

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   ♦   Growler Fills:  32 oz. $7 | 64 oz. $13

 

BATCH 500: INCARNATE

Wheat Wine - 9.0%

For our 500th batch through the brewhouse, we bring you INCARNATE, a wheat wine fashioned from an enormous grist of malted German wheat, American 2-row, and both caramel and flaked wheat.  This strong, hazy, amber ale has soft mouthfeel with a nuanced graininess, touched up with a balanced kettle hopping of Citra, Cascade, Mosaic, and Simcoe.  We hope you enjoy it, and we're looking forward to the next 500 batches!
