John Dwyer's Dry Irish Stout

John Dwyer’s Dry Irish Stout (3.7 abv) is a special brew in the traditional Irish style in honor of the Feast of Saint Patrick. We’ve named it for Lois’ great-great-grandfather John Dwyer, a common laborer who fled famine in Ireland and joined an ocean-bound caravan of immigrants desperate to build better lives in America. He settled in a New England mill town and opened a small grocery — where the next generation would go on to sell bootleg liquor during prohibition. He is buried in St. Patrick’s cemetery. We raise a glass to his immigrant story.

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.

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abv) is a German-style kolsch, light in color with a hint of spiciness. 1933 was the year that the Volstead Act was repealed, putting an end to Prohibition in the United States.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. (That would be Senator Volstead himself in the photo. We are just not even sure what that is on his face.)
