The long, cold nights of winter are a little brighter with Celebration® Ale. Wonderfully robust and rich, Celebration® Ale is dry-hopped for a lively, intense aroma. Brewed especially for the holidays, it is perfect for a festive gathering or for a quiet evening at home.

Smuttynose Winter Ale is a full-bodied, amber beer brewed with a special Trappist ale yeast. Stylistically reminiscent of a Belgian Abbey Double, it features fruity aromas and flavor, balanced by soft Crystal hops. Warming, mellow & pleasantly complex, Smuttynose Winter Ale is your perfect cold weather companion.

Available in sixpacks and on draft from late October through January.

ABV 4.8%


Chocolate Indulgence comes with a thick tan head of foam resting on top of the rich onyx-colored liquid. The aroma immediately speaks of dark chocolate and dark malts. The gentle herbal nose of Perle hops compliments the darker notes, making the beer savory to the senses.

The taste continues with the intense Belgian dark chocolate gliding across the tongue; starting sweet up front but giving way to rich cocoa flavors at the back. Through it all, a subtle fruitiness from our special Belgian yeast gives the beer brightness otherwise foreign to a beer style normally associated with gray foggy skies.

ABV 7.0%


Deep reddish / orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, fruity, oranges, citrus and some dark fruits. Tastes of caramel, citrus, fruity, and toffee. Light alcohol finish.

ABV 9.0%

and as always free brats & sauerkraut while they last.

Bad Santa
Nightmare before Christmas

Prohibition Bash!!

So this coming Friday December 5th 2008 from exactly 5:32 1/2PM onwards, we will be celebrating the 75th anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition!!!!
Unlike the days of "temperance" you will not need a password to get in, nor will you have to run out the back door for fear of being arrested for.......drinking.
Come and hang for some prohibition inspired cocktails like the:
Mary Pickford
Colony cocktail
Old Fashioned
French 75
Amendment 21

Also, we'll be having specials on Budweiser and Yuengling, as a nod to their both delivering a truckload of beer to the White House the day of and, the day after, respectively, of the repeal in 1933, which is interesting because it takes more than a day to make beer.....
ok check here for more updates but let's have some fun maybe we could show the untouchables and play oldtimey music any suggestions? let us know
Oh and Carey Nation, this Friday goes out to you
