Our Core Beers:

Handline Kolsch

STYLE NOTES: 

Our interpretation of a German-style kolsch, mildly hopped with Vanguard. This unfiltered rendition has pleasant aromas akin to lemon zest and cut grass, with a dry finish and refreshing taste.

  5% ABV 18 IBU   Unfiltered

THE NAME:

Cape Cod is truly a fishing paradise. When we're not brewing beer we're usually fishing (or at least thinking about fishing during the winter). For many local kids their first tackle was a handline--just a line, weight, hook, bait and something to wrap the line around. Many a scup or small schoolie has been caught by this method, demonstrating that sometimes the simplest of things can work just fine. This simple approach to fishing is the same way we view our kolsch--simple, fun and delicious.

Surfman's Check™ ESB

Style notes: 

Hopped with Northdown and East Kent Goldings. A classic, malt-forward style driven by English malts. Taste is well-rounded, with a sweet and spicy up front flavor, dry finish, and a cleansing hop bite. 

 5.2% ABV   32 IBU   Unfiltered

The name:

Over a century ago, the Cape shoreline was dotted with lifeboat stations manned by members of the U.S. Lifesaving Service - the predecessor of today's U.S. Coast Guard. Ever vigilant to render aid to foundered vessels, surfmen from each station would patrol sections of the beach in all weather conditions. When two surfmen would meet at the end of their patrols, they would exchange their "surfman's check," a badge with their assigned number and station, as proof that they had completed their patrol.

Today, accomplished and highly skilled Boatswain's Mates in the Coast Guard can be certified as a Surfman, and awarded a Surfman's Check for their level of expertise. Our bold and flavorful Surfman's Check ESB pays homage to the U.S. Lifesaving Service crews of the past, as well as the men and women serving in today's Coast Guard who are "Always Ready" to go into harm's way to save a life.

Pollock Rip IPA 

STYLE NOTES:

Packed with Warrior, Apollo, and Chinook hops. This solid IPA has a dry finish with a perceived sweetness and spicy flavors to balance bitterness with added aromas of pithy citrus fruits.

 7.3% ABV   68 IBU   Unfiltered

THE NAME:

Pollock Rip Shoal is centered about three miles east of the southerly end of Monomoy Island in Chatham. For mariners this area was considered particularly treacherous, and between 1849 and 1969 eight different light vessels served at this dangerous open water station. This name of this beer honors the stalwart lightship crews that manned their station day and night through all kinds of sea conditions.

Cuddy Queen™ American Pale Ale

Cuddy Queen is our American Pale Ale dry-hopped exclusively with Mandarina Bavaria, a delicate German hop with aromas of orange, making this an easy-drinking pale ale.

6% ABV

THE NAME:

The release of Cuddy Queen at the start of the Autumnal Equinox is by design. For local Cape Cod mariners and fishermen this is a time when collars get turned up as the days on the water become cooler, damper and a little darker. Cuddy Queen captures this sea going spirit as the desire for the warmth and shelter of the cuddy cabin becomes stronger.

Rotating Availability:

Skatemouth Pale Ale

Style notes:

A malt -forward Pale Ale. Sweet malt flavor derived from flaked rye, adding a hint of spice character. The beer is finished with an infusion of UK Challenger hops providing hints of spicy orange marmalade. 

 6% ABV 35 IBU   Unfiltered

The name:

No real mystery behind this name other than it relates to a devil's purse (a skate egg sac). After coming up with the idea for a brewery name we would often banter back and forth about beer names while brewing. Skatemouth was the result of a very, very late night of brewing.

Intertidal Oyster Stout

Stout with extremely dark color and roasted notes. This beer is brewed using locally harvested oysters, which add a pleasant minerality to complement this stout's big, malty flavor.

Stonehorse IPAs

A sequence of single-hop IPAs, each with a unique grain bill that showcases the individual character of the hop.

Standard Wit™

Our new Belgian-style wit is made with Pilsner malt, wheat, flaked wheat, flaked oats, orange blossom honey and the addition of bitter orange peel and coriander seed. 
We then used a strain of yeast available from our friends over at bootleg biology. The wit is delicious, with floral and citrus aromas and a soft palate.

4.6% Alc.

Table Beer:

A succession of hoppy session ales, South Dennis style. Table beers can be found at the brewery during warmer months.

Specialty Beers:

Shiso Berry Ale

The grain bill for this beer is made with Pilsner, wheat, flaked rice and flaked oats. We added a small bittering and aroma addition of New Zealand Pacifica hops. A large amount of Shiso leaf was then added which contributes a bitter, herbal character to the beer. Our Shiso leaf was locally sourced from our friends at Punkhorn Farm in Brewster. After primary fermentation was competed we re-fermented the beer with the addition of blackberry and raspberry puree. The berries create the aroma of this beer, but the palate is dry and finishes with hints of mint and green tea.

5.6% Alc.

Sevenstones™ Double IPA

Based on our Pollock Rip IPA recipe. Secondary fermentation with Brettanomyces Clausenii. Dry with lots of complexity. Notes of pineapple and stone fruits accented by smoky, spicy earthy aromas with hints of barnyard.

The Name:

Sevenstones Double IPA is the third release in the brewery’s Light Vessel Series of India Pale Ales. The name comes after the Sevenstones Light Vessel moored on the Seven Stones Reef 15 miles off Land's End, Cornwall in the United Kingdom. The yeast strain of Brettanomyces Clausenii was also originally discovered in the U.K.

Hen & Chickens™ Double IPA

Made with New Zealand and Australian hops and a mix of Pilsner and Floor Malted Maris Otter malts. This is an easy drinking Double IPA with a big tropical nose reminiscent of mango. Extremely limited seasonal availability

Scallop Bag™ American Strong Ale

This beer uses Maris Otter as a base malt along with malted and flaked rye, accentuated by English crystal malt.
