What to Drink This Weekend

Stark Brewing Company

Stark Brewing Company
Manchester, New Hampshire
The Hound IPA

Unleashed on humanity by our friends at Stark Brewing Company in Manchester, N.H., this brew has the piney, citrusy notes of a classic IPA with hints of earthy caramel.

Crisp, amber-colored, with medium carbonation to go down smooth and easy.

Available At
Hanover & Co-op Market

Frost Beer Works

Frost Beer Works
Hinesburg, Vermont
Plush Double IPA

Locally made in Hinesburg, Vt., Plush lays a soft mouthfeel and dank juiciness on your palate.

All the citrus notes and light bitterness that we love to see in a New England IPA, along with a diverse blend of hop varieties and a hazy appearance.

Available At
White River Jct.



Other Great Craft Beers We Carry

Polyculture Brewing Company.

Polyculture Brewing Company
Croydon, New Hampshire
Cottagecore Farmhouse IPA

We're picky about IPAs because, well, we love the things. This one, locally made in Croydon, N.H., is soft and pleasant and somehow manages to bring together several powerhouse American hops without being overly bitter.

Notes of mango, creamsicle, and melon. Smooth finish.

Available At
Hanover & Lebanon



Foley Brothers Brewing

Foley Brothers Brewing
Brandon, Vermont
Grumpy Wench IPA

Our friends at Foley Brothers, a famous local Vermont craft brewery, do monster hop IPAs just right. We love this one for its hazy golden body and sweet citrus scent. Just a hint of tangerine? Oh yeah.

Available At
White River Jct.



Stoneface Brewing Co.

Stoneface Brewing Co.
Newington, New Hampshire
Forklift Unicorn

Stoneface Brewing is famous for its experimental IPAs. This one has a big pineapple hop profile both on the nose and on the palate. A lively IPA supported by generous citrus and a soft mouthfeel.

Hanover & Lebanon




Upper Pass Brewery

Upper Pass Brewery
South Royalton, Vermont
Ring That Bell Dry Hop Pilsner 40th Anniversary Prouty Edition

This refreshing, dry-hopped pilsner is designed around a blend of old- and new-world brewing techniques, with a few basic German malts accompanied by a new U.S.-grown hop variety.

The end result is the classic crisp and drinkable qualities of a pilsner with a slightly hazy appearance, clean floral and herbal flavor, and an intriguing light pear finish. All proceeds are donated to The Prouty and Friends of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center. We recommend raising a cold glass of this pilsner with friends and toasting to a most excellent cause.

Brewed in Brattleboro, Vt., this is a bright and delicious IPA perfect for quenching your thirst working outside in this nice May weather. (4.5% ABV)

Foley Brothers Brewing Fair Maiden Double IPA

Foley Brothers Brewing
Brandon, Vermont
Fair Maiden Double IPA

IPA lovers, this local craft brew is a true hop monster, with just enough of a citrus profile to balance out the sledgehammer subtlety of seven hop varieties. We love this brew all on its own, with no pairing needed.

That said, IPAs famously go well with spicy foods, so try it with tacos, barbecue, or even Thai and Indian cuisine. Whatever you do, heads up!

This double IPA has a serious cult following, so supplies are limited.
