1634 Ale (Year round)
"1634 Ale" was created by Tom Flores, master brewer at Brewer's Alley, following research of historic recipes and raw
materials available in centuries past. "We used ingredients that would have been found in the austere conditions of early
colonial Maryland," said Flores of his rye-based ale recipe that also includes malted wheat, molasses and caraway. Flores
says caramel and dark malts round out the flavor of the "lighter bodied ale." For more details...
Kölsch (Year round)
This style originated in the area of Cologne, Germany. It exhibits the more desirable features of both ales and lagers.
Our Kölsch is pale gold with light body and a slightly dry palate. It has a mild bitterness and delicate hop aroma.
This beer is a clean and pleasant thirst quencher, which earned a Bronze Medal at the 1998 Great American Beer Festival.
4.6 - 5.0% alcohol, by volume.
India Pale Ale (I.P.A.) (Year round)
A British style, the I.P.A. originates from the aggressively hopped and high-alcohol beers which were shipped to the British
troops in colonial India. Pale to medium amber in color. 5.0 - 5.4% alcohol, by volume.
Nut Brown Ale (Year round)
Another British style that has a roasted nut-like aroma. Brewed with a number of dark malts, which lend a complex malt
character. This beer does not have a lot of hop bitterness, only enough for balance. 5.2 - 5.6% alcohol, by volume.
Dunkel Weizen (Perennial Seasonal Beer)
This is a dark version of the weizen beer style. The grist contains a large portion of wheat, which lends a distinctive note
to the malt body and aroma. This style is traditionally un-filtered and can have significant haze and cloudiness. Our Dunkle
Weizen is brewed with a traditional Bavarian weizen yeast, which gives it a very pronounced clove and spice character, as
well as a fruity aroma. 4.4 - 4.8% alcohol, by volume.
Oatmeal Stout (Year round)
Yet another British style. Stouts are black beers which have strong roast and burnt characteristics. The dark malts used
give this beer a wonderfully rich aroma and taste. It is not hopped very heavily and oats are used in this particular style
because they lend a fuller mouthfeel. 6.0 - 6.2% alcohol, by volume.
Trinity Stout (Perennial Seasonal Beer)
This is a "slow-pour" stout, which is very easy drinking and has a velvety texture, mild bitterness, and rich full roasty malt
character. 4.5% alcohol, by volume (St. Patrick's Day into April).
Maibock (Perennial Seasonal Beer)
A very malty beer with a fair amount of residual sweetness. The hop character is subdued, with a delicate aroma and just enough
bitterness to balance the sweet finish. This beer is intended to be consumed at a leisurely pace, since it has some strength.
6.8% alcohol by volume (late-April into May).
Hefe-Weizen (Perennial Seasonal Beer)
This is the lightest style of weizen beer. The grist contains a large portion of wheat, which lends a distinctive note to the
malt body and aroma. This style is traditionally unfiltered and can have significant haze and cloudiness. Also, it has been
brewed with a traditional Bavarian weizen yeast, which gives it a pronounced clove and spicy character, as well as banana and
bubblegum, and even some slight vanilla notes. 4.6% alcohol by volume (June, July, August and into September).
Pils Year Round Beer and Available in Bottles at Your Favorite Liquor Store
A very pale beer brewed as a lager and which has a crisp, assertive Czechoslovakian Saaz hop character. This beer took 6 weeks to
produce because the strain of yeast we used has a slow and cold fermentation, which results in a very smooth beer. 4.3% alcohol
Oktoberfest (Perennial Seasonal Beer)
Brewed especially for early fall, this scrumptious lager has a deeper red color than most lager beers, and a rich maltiness.
Not only does this beer match the color of autumn leaves, but it also goes well with many foods; particularly red-meat dishes
with herbs, as well as grilled fish. And of course, this beer complements the classic German combination of sauerkraut and
wurst. 5.2% alcohol by volume (late-September into October).
Scotch Ale (Perennial Seasonal Beer)
The warming sensation of this strong beer goes nicely with the cold fall and winter months. It has a very rich malt character,
residual sweetness, delicate bouquet, and alcohol strength. This beer is served in specially shaped thistle-glasses, which
allows the beer to be held in the hand to warm up and release its aroma into the flared top-portion of the glass. 7.5%
alcohol, by volume (late October into December).
Owen's Ale (Other Seasonal)
This is a classic English Bitter. It is well balanced and has a light hop and malty aroma. The color is somewhat darker
than that of pale ales, leaning more towards ruby red. Light in body and alcohol and easy to drink, this beer is one that
can be consumed comfortably throughout a long evening at the pub. Owen's Ale won a Silver medal at the Real Ale Festival
2001, in Chicago, Illinois. 4.5% alcohol by volume.
Smoked Porter (Other seasonal)
A slight variation of the porter style in that we used beechwood smoked malt in a portion of the grist. This lends a
distinctive smoke character to the taste and aroma. We also use Munich, Caramel, and Chocolate malt in this beer. The hop
character comes through a little in the aroma, but is mostly in the bitterness to balance the intense malt character. 5.8%
alcohol, by volume.
Wedding Alt (Other seasonal)
This beer has a subtle hop aroma from the addition of hops directly to the fermentor (a technique referred to as "dry-hopping"
or "dry-hopped"). It has a clean and light taste, with a dry finish. The crisp dryness is derived largely from the use of
Munich-style malts in the grist. Caramel and Chocolate malts were also used, resulting in a beer which is very easy to drink
but also has some maltiness in the finish. All the hops used were imported from Germany and Czechoslovakia (Hallertau and
Saaz hops). The beer was brewed as a special beer for the 1999 wedding of our Brewmaster, Tom. 4.6% alcohol by volume.
Barleywine (Other seasonal)
This is a very special type of beer. It is about as strong as they come. We actually brewed this beer using a sour-mash
technique, and then fermented it beer with our house ale strain. After a short conditioning period in the fermentor, the
beer was moved into kegs for long-term storage. So this beer can be considered "keg conditioned". It typically requires many
months of maturation before it reaches its peak flavor balance. This beer could be considered an aperitif, or it can be
enjoyed with a meal. 10.5% alcohol, by volume.
