CASK SPECIAL: LUMINARY

Cream Ale - 5.8%

A cask of our popular cream ale Luminary, conditioned with whole leaf Citra hops and freshly sliced starfruit.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $5 | 16 oz.  $6

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 nonetheless profoundly crushable any time of the year!

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

THREE ARROWS

American IPA - 6.6%

CITRA, CASHMERE, AND LEMONDROP are the US-grown hops that form this IPA's three-pronged attack, bestowing a complex range of tropical citrus flavors and aromatics. No stranger to haze, this beer is packed with flaked wheat and oats and fermented with a New England-derived yeast strain.   This IPA was brewed in collaboration with TaleSpinner Craft Brewery (http://talespinnerbrew.com/), coming soon to Downtown Nashua, New Hampshire!

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

LASER KITTEN

Session India Pale Ale - 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    ♦   CANS:  $14 / 4-pack | $84 / case

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.

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

AVID HORIZON

New England Pale Ale - 5.6%

This hazy pale ale was mashed with 2-Row barley malt and flaked wheat from maine, with flaked oats bolstering its soft, smooth mouthfeel. Hopped extensively with Cascade, Amarillo, and Meridian, for a compelling character of tangerine citrus, with additional tropical and floral notes. Fermented with a New England-derived yeast strain, contributing pleasant stonefruit esters.

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

STEADY ABBOT

Patersbier - 4.0%

A traditional Belgian-style table beer, made with a blend of continental pilsner and Maine-grown 2-row malts, with a touch of Belgian toasted malt. Light and dry, with classic Trappist esters.

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

ANTIOCH

Quadrupel - 9.0%

A potent sipper with a profound dark fruit character of raisins, plums, and figs. This hardy ale was built from a base of German pilsner malt, and gets its complex, caramel body from intense Patagonia crystal malts and heavily caramelized Belgian candi sugar.

5 oz. $3 | 12 oz.  $7    ♦   Growler Fills:  32 oz. $10 | 64 oz. $19

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.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $6 | 16 oz.  $7   ♦  CANS:  SOLD OUT!

POLAR VORTEX

(the) Oatmeal Stout - 5.8%

WEATHER THE STORM in this delightfully soft bear-skin blanket of an oatmeal stout.  Brewed with copious amounts of malted and flaked oats to promote a decidedly smooth mouthfeel that's well-balanced with all those dark, toasty, biscuity malts.  Fermented with a classic English yeast strain and gently hopped with UK First Gold.

This beer was inspired by the hilarious artwork of webcomic titan Matthew Inman (theoatmeal.com), who graciously allowed us to feature it on the label.

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

BAD OMEN

Belgian Pale Ale with Raspberries and Cherries - 7.5%

Sometimes our Belgian-style Pale Ale GOOD OMEN takes a turn for the sinister after a diabolical infusion of pureed raspberries and cherries, transforming it into BAD OMEN.  The signature fruity esters, derived from a classic Trappist yeast strain, dovetail nicely with the red berry notes.  Slightly tart, with a perception of sweetness before a dry finish.

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

COUNTY HELL

Irish Red - 5.2%

Brewed with an intriguing mix of caramel and roast malts, and hopped with UK First Gold, County Hell is a smooth, clean, malt-forward ale able to satisfy the thirst of a gang of devils. 

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

WAKE OF THE MEDUSA

Irish Stout - 4.2%

The traditional black ale, spiked with a liberal dose of roasted barley and hopped with UK Pilgrim. Dry, with an assertive roastiness, and session-worthy.

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

RUCTION

West Coast IPA - 7.0%

A bit of a departure from the current trend of intense citrus in the modern IPA, RUCTION utilizes Simcoe, Chinook, and Cascade to impart distinctly piney, resinous, and dank hoppy flavors alongside a firm bitterness.

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

MOFFAT 120/-
