The Undauntable

The Undauntable double IPA (7.8 abv). Launching a new brewery on a farm was an endeavor that came with one or two (hundred) unexpected and daunting challenges. Somewhere in there, Lois gave Dave a nickname that still makes him blush: The Undauntable. His optimism simply would not be vanquished. And here we are.

Last year's grape harvest yielded wild yeast that we cultured and used to brew this delicately-flavored sour...

Named for Andrew McClary, who came to this hill from Scotland in the 1700s and was known in these parts as “The Old Immigrant.” (His son would go on to command a regiment at the Battle of Bunker Hill.) With molasses, raisin, oak...
