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. The Undauntable is big, hoppy double IPA concocted with seven different varieties of hops, including simcoe and ekuanot. We like to think of it as a bit of an optimism-booster.

1933

1933 (4.9 abv) is a German-style kolsch, light in color with a hint of spiciness. 1933 was the year that the Volstead Act was repealed, putting an end to Prohibition in the United States. Beer makers, reduced to brewing soda pop and “cereal beverages” for 13 years, went back to doing what they did best. It was an excellent year.

Farthest Field Sour

Farthest Field Sour (3.5 abv) a special offering brewed with yeast cultured from grapes that we found growing alongside a cellar hole in an abandoned township in the White Mountain National Forest. We sent one of our kids up a birch to get a handful of grapes, brought them home, and propagated the seeds in the greenhouse. We planted the new plants here on the farm. Last year's grape harvest yielded wild yeast that we cultured and used to brew this delicately-flavored sour...

McCoy’s Choice

Isabella McCoy’s Choice (5.3 abv) is a robust porter named for a robust woman. Isabella and her husband Charles settled near here in the 1700s. In 1747, Isabella was captured by native Americans, brought to Canada, and sold as a slave to a French family. At the end of the French and Indian war, she was given the choice to return home. It wasn’t an easy choice. Charles McCoy was a vile brute, and Isabella made it clear (and history would record) that she only chose to return for the sake of her children. That was Isabella McCoy’s Choice. We raise a glass to her fortitude.

Farmer’s Alchemy Saison

Farmer’s Alchemy Saison (6.0 abv). What would happen if two farmer-brewers came up with a recipe together and then each went back and brewed it on their own farms...? Farmer’s Alchemy Saison is our special NH Craft Beer Week collaboration with our friends at Canterbury AleWorks. Is “terroir” really a beer thing...? We think yes. Brewed with ginger and bitter orange and spicy rye malt. A little sweet, a little tart, totally refreshing.
