CASK SPECIAL: LASER CAT W/CASHMERE

Imperial IPA - 8.0%

A firkin of LASER CAT Imperial IPA, conditioned on whole leaf Cashmere hops, a “Super Cascade” variety known for its notes of tropical fruit, peach, and tangerine.

5 oz. $3 | 13 oz. $8

MOFFAT 120/-

Scoch Ale - 8.0%

The big brother to our popular Scottish-style ale Moffat 80/- has arrived! This one's no session beer: all of the ingredients have been scaled up to deliver a malt-bomb with some serious legs.

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

DOUBLE DRY-HOPPED CITRA LEGACY

Double Dry-Hopped Rye IPA - 6.5%

This American-style Rye IPA delivers its one-two hop punch courtesy of a DOUBLE dose of Citra and Legacy hops.  Citra, of course, is renowned for its lush, tropical character of passionfruit and citrus, while Legacy supplies a lovely herbal background alongside some grapefruit and blackcurrent.  A healthy addition of both malted and flaked rye adds a subtle, spicy touch. 

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

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! 

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

SOMEWHITHER: BLACKBERRY & APRICOT

Kettle Sour w/Fruit - 6.0%

Mashed with a mixture of New England-grown 2-row and German wheat malts, this sour ale was inoculated with a Lactobacillus culture and allowed to develop acidity overnight in the kettle.  For this batch, we blended in pureed blackberries and apricots during fermentation for an end result that strikes a balance between fruity and tart, with a crisp, dry body. 

5 oz. $3 | .4L  $6    ♦   Growler Fills:  32 oz. $9 | 64 oz. $17

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    ♦   CANS:  $12 / 4-pack | $72 / case

BERGMANN

Dortmunder Export Lager - 5.1%

Originally crafted to satisfy the thirst of 19th-century coal miners in Germany, the Dortmunder features a slightly softer palate than a classic pilsner, with a pleasant hop character dervived from German Merkur and Hallertau Hersbrucker.

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

FRIENDLY TERRITORY

Local Imperial IPA - 8.0%

Explore the brewing terroir of Massachusetts! Friendly Territory's pale, dry body is crafted entirely with 2-Row Barley and Warthog Wheat from Valley Malt (Hadley, MA) and features an array of hops from Four Star Farms (Northfield, MA): an alluring blend of Centennial, Crystal, Cascade, Magnum, Mt. Rainier, Pepite, and Chaos, resulting in lush aromas of tropical citrus with a crisp herbal background. 

TAPROOM CAN POUR 16 oz. $8     ♦     CANS to go: $18 / 4-pack | $108 / case

SOLO PROJECT: NUGGET

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 Nugget, a classic American hop with an earthy, fruity character.

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

TRAITOR EMPRESS

Imperial Brut IPA - 8.9%

Ultra-dry, with a brisk, champagne-like finish and effervescence, this Brut-style imperial IPA showcases a blend of American, Australian, and British hops, including Citra, Vic Secret, Bramling Cross, and Admiral.

WINTER BOY

Dry-Hopped English Golden Bitter - 4.2%

Like its seasonal cousin Summer Boy, WINTER BOY is an English-style golden bitter, brewed entirely with UK Maris Otter malt, then gently dry-hopped with a blend of American Cascade and UK Bramling Cross hops. Because crushable, session-strength beers aren’t just for the Summer!

ANTIOCH

Belgian 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

MAGNUM OPUS
