Unnamed Chocolate Rye Porter


On Wednesday, February 26 we brewed the first pilot batch of Unnamed Chocolate Rye Porter.  Porters are an English style similar to Stouts, but use dark malts instead of Roasted Malt for color and flavor.  Much like a classic Porter, we used dark Chocolate Malt to craft the flavors you'd expect with one unique difference; the addition of Rye Malts as well as Barley.  The Chocolate Rye is kilned much like it's Chocolate Barley counterpart, which creates familiar notes of toffee, caramel, and roasted; in addition to Rye's characteristic spice.

Unnamed Chocolate Rye Porter was hopped with both Fuggles and Sovereign, which will provide a soft, fresh, and fruity aroma; accentuated through the English Yeast.  This beer should be ready for tasting toward the end of March.

Have a great idea for its name?  Let us know!

Our Newest Brew: Pota Caifé, Dry Irish Coffee Stout


For months, people asked the question, "If you're an Irish brewery, why don't you have a stout?" and our answer was, "Soon."  Just three weeks ago we brewed a pilot batch of a Dry Irish Stout and visited Grover's Mill Coffee Roasters in West Windsor, NJ

L-R: Dark Tanzanian, Darker Tanzanian (custom) & Espresso beans

At Grover's Mill, the morning began with a sampling of half a dozen coffee varieties.  The roasts started light and got subsequently darker until we found the perfect bean for our stout; Dark Tanzanian.  But it wasn't dark enough for our liking, so they made a custom roast called Darker Tanzanian.  Grover's Mill description of Dark Tanzanian is:
100% Organically shade grown coffee from Southern Tanzania is said to be some of the finest Arabica coffee in East Africa.  This smooth, yet flavorful coffee is a house favorite. 

Pota Caifé (pot of coffee, in Gaelic) will be available, in limited quantity, this weekend at the brewery only.  Our plan is to release Pota Caifé St. Patrick's Day weekend, beginning March 14.






Tasting room hours this weekend are: Thurs & Fri 4:00-8:00 pm, Saturday 1:00-7:00 pm
