River Hours

Pale Ale w. Cryo Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic

   

5.3% abv



The time spent working and failing that inevitably brings us closer to success – there are our River Hours. Crisp, soft and balanced, River Hours Pale Ale, brewed with Cryo Citra, Galaxy and Mosaic hops, leaps out of the glass with bright citrus aromas and mellows into easy drinking pomelo and grapefruit on the palate.

 

Happy Place

Cab Franc Skin & Vine Saison

   

7.3% abv



Happy Place, the latest in our beer-wine hybrid series, is a naturally conditioned saison aged on Cab Franc grapes and skins while the canes and vines are harvest-dried, to smoke a portion of the grain, adding tannin and structure. Dry with a piquette-like intensity Happy Place presents delicate red fruit with a restrained tartness and a refreshing finish.

No Days Off

Tea Infused Wheat Beer

   

5.0% abv



Collabs aren’t all 6-foot sandwiches and free beers – they’re serious business! Sweatin’ it out with your pals, no breaks, and no days off.

Roses are Red 2021

Gewurtztraminer Gose

   

7.5% abv



A beautiful summer wine hybrid brewed with Gewurtztraminer grapes from Fielding Estates Winery. Freshly pressed Gewurztraminer skins were added to a traditional zero-hop gose for extended aging. Pouring a honeycomb gold with tart aromatics of elderflower, white grape juice, and stone fruit with hints of gentle tangerine and bright floral character bursting out of the bottle. Roses is pure love in a glass.

Young Rival

IPA

   

6.0% abv



Young Rival is our flagship IPA. Using a blend El Dorado and Mosaic hops, we focused on creating a juicy and tropical IPA with very limited bitterness, and a simple malt bill that lets the hops shine.

SVP

French Table Beer

   

3% abv



It’s time to reclaim the lunchtime pint. Meals should be worth celebrating, and what better way to do so than having a pint in hand while you take a mid-day break to enjoy a bite? At 3%, SVP is approachable, but different than most attempts are creating a “light” beer as it’s brewed with wheat and barley, and fermented with our house saison yeast.

For guest tap, cider, and wine options, please see menu board in our taproom.
