“603

603 Brewery

Our friends at 603 Brewery have crafted a beautiful, distinct IPA with this brew, bursting with tropical and citrus notes of lime, orange, and melon.

Hanover & Lebanon



“Mount

Mount Holly Beer Company
Mount Holly, Vt.
The Green Stand Hoppy Ale

Locally brewed just down the road in Mount Holly, Vt., The Green Stand is named after the first tavern in Mount Holly. Built by Captain Joseph Green, a returning Revolutionary War soldier who settled in Mount Holly in 1786, the tavern was unfortunately taken down in 1919 but its spirit lives on in this easy-drinking brew.

Made with a pilsner and wheat malt base, then gently hopped with Citra & Vermont-grown Cascade & Chinook. All the flavor of a Vermont IPA but with a restrained ABV. And why yes, we do love the cool rusty truck illustration on the label.

Available At
White River Jct.



“Ghostfish

Ghostfish Brewing Company
Grapefruit IPAA

Someone challenged our beer geeks to find a great-tasting, gluten-free craft beer. Accepted! This smooth brew is a multi-award-winning, truly gluten-free craft beer, brewed entirely from gluten-free grains by the legendary Seattle-based Ghostfish Brewing Company. American IPAs are known for their citrusy hop punch, but Ghostfish cranked up the zing of this one to make it a hop-citrus bomb.

Codenamed “Experimental Grapefruit,” the brew is lively and bright, bracingly bitter, and eminently refreshing. You'll never even know it's gluten-free.

Available At
Hanover, Lebanon and Co-op Market



“Foley

Foley Brothers Brewing
Brandon, Vermont
Wet Dreams IPA

Nothing says summer like a risqué IPA. Brewed in Brandon, Vermont, Wet Dreams is a pale ale made with traditional blends of barley, wheat, and oats, brewed with Amarillo, galaxy, and simcoe hops.

The result is a light-bodied ale that is then lightly dry-hopped with galaxy before processing. We like this brew's golden color, crisp texture, and easy-drinking character, especially refreshing on a late-summer afternoon. And yes, we dig the name.

Available At
Hanover and Lebanon

“Fiddlehead

Fiddlehead Brewing Company
Shelburne, Vermont
Fiddlehead IPA

A simple name for a beautifully simple brew. Fiddlehead Brewing Company's flagship beer is a hazy, well-balanced, traditional American IPA with mellow bitterness and a dry, refreshing finish.

The universe of IPAs has exploded in depth and complexity over the last few years, making a trip back to the basics a wonderfully rewarding drinking experience. Brought to us by Fiddlehead Brewing Company in Shelburne, Vermont

Available At
White River Jct. Only



“Allagash”

Allagash
Curieux

Our friends at Allagash Brewing Company in Portland, Maine, age their award-winning golden ale in freshly emptied bourbon barrels for seven weeks to create this rich mixture. The result is one of Allagash's most popular barrel-aged beers, a bold ale with notes of vanilla, caramel, oak, and of course, bourbon.

Flavorful, multi-layered, with a crisp, dry finish. We may not have it long, so get it while you can!

Available At
Hanover and Lebanon



“Prohibition

Prohibition Pig
Waterbury, Vermont
Little Fluffy Clouds

What is a little fluffy cloud? If you said a visible mass of ethereal water droplets suspended in the atmosphere, you're right! If you said a highly sought-after Vermont beer that's not easy to find, you're right too! (And you really know your beer.)

Locally crafted by the creative minds at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury, Vermont, this is an old-fashioned American Pale Ale with Simcoe, Amarillo, and Nelson Sauvin hops. Crisp, tropical, and hard to come by.

Available At
White River Jct. Only



“Rustic

Polyculture Brewing
Croydon, N.H.
Rustic Chic

The cure for your heatwave-induced melancholy. A great summer farmhouse ale, featuring a touch of sweetness, moderate bitterness, a bright flavor and aroma, and a dry, crisp finish. Smooth as Walter Parker's voice on VPR Classical. Brewed with love and beer-concocting wizardry at Polyculture Brewing in Croydon, N.H.

Available At
Hanover and Lebanon

“Space

Lawson's Finest Liquids
Waitsfield, Vermont
The Space In Between

With a depth and form unclear, this hazy ale resides in the space in between styles. Brewed with oats and wheat with a hint of tartness, dry-hopped with Nelson and Galaxy varieties. Crisp, citrusy, super-sippable. Perfect for ambiguous beer-drinkers who enjoy the glorious philosophical state of lack of identity.

Available At
White River Jct. Only



“Polyculture

Polyculture Brewing Co.
Croydon, N.H.
Boat Shoes

If you're a fan of the classic American pilsner-style malts, you'll love this creative concoction. Locally brewed in Croydon, N.H., by our friends at Polyculture, Boat Shoes is a dry-hopped, sour wheat beer inspired by Berliner Weisse beers from Germany.

Mixed with hop varietals to give it hints of tropical fruit and white wine. Tart, unique, easy-drinking, and perfect for a summer afternoon.

Available At
Hanover & Lebanon



“Upper

Upper Pass Brewery
South Royalton, Vt.
Love Seat Double IPA

Locally brewed in South Royalton, Vt., this hazy double IPA has notes of tropical fruit and coconut, while still maintaining a balanced hop bitterness and smooth mouthfeel. IPA-lovers know that many DIPAs are so intense they don't necessarily pair well with most dishes, but this smooth brew is a glorious exception.

We recommend enjoying with grilled ribs, pork chops, and chicken, as well as strong cheeses like blues and sharp cheddars.

Available At
White River Junction



“Maine

Maine Beer Co.
Woods & Waters IPA

We love this hazy, easy-drinking IPA, featuring Maine-grown barley and wheat and generous amounts of hops.

This brew literally smells like an evergreen forest with just a touch of citrus. Made by the fabulous Maine Beer Company out of Freeport, Maine.

“Green

Green Empire Brewing
Colchester, Vt.
Leo IPA

This is the weekend afternoon brew of choice for some of our most dedicated beer aficionados. (Lookin' at you, Jordy.) An American IPA double dry-hopped to yield juicy, refreshing notes of mango, kiwi, and tangy lemon lime.

Brought to us by our friends at Green Empire, a solid, creative brewery out of Colchester, Vt. Pair with a hammock and a Red Sox game on an old a.m. radio.

Available At
White River Junction

“Zero

Zero Gravity
Burlington, Vt.
Sippie Wallace DIPA

Brewed by our pals at Zero Gravity in Burlington, Vt., this is a jazzy little double IPA that we've hand-selected because it pairs so well with a warm Upper Valley summer afternoon.

The blend of Simcoe, Azacca, and Idaho 7 hops give it a tropical aroma and tasting notes of pineapple and cherry, while the pilsner malt keeps it drinkable and refreshing. Light, bright, and not overpowering, it's perfect for IPA fans and hop-newbies alike.

Available At
White River Junction

“Lawsons

Lawson's Finest Liquids
Waitsfield, Vt.
Super Session #5 Cashmere IPA

Lawson's entire line kicks, and this piney sesh is no exception. Super Session #5 is brewed to be light and effortless with a low alcohol content, going down nice and smooth.

It does all that of course, but the Cashmere hops are what give it the enormous flavor profile you might not see coming, resulting in a bruising old-school IPA we love. Hazy, easy-drinking, Vermont craft beer perfection. Leave it to Lawson's.

Available At
Hanover & Lebanon



“Lawsons

Lawson's

App Gap Saison

Coming to us from Waitsfield, Vt., Lawson’s Finest Liquids is a legendary craft beer brewery and one of the first in our area to create brews so popular that beer-lovers had to wait in line for some of the limited releases. App Gap Saison is a Belgian-style farmhouse ale with a slightly spicy character, fruity yeast-driven esters, and an effervescent, dry finish. A homage to the mountain gateway of the Mad River Valley.

Glasses of Nerdicon Double IPA

Aslin Beer Company
Glasses of Nerdicon Double IPA

An excellent double IPA. Tropical fruit notes with a balanced hop profile for a refreshing and tasty finish. Super bold and hoppy but still smooth. Cool name, too! Our copywriter geek thinks it sounds like something right out of C.S. Lewis.

You'll love asking guests: "Hey chum, want another Aslin?" Or the more alliterative: "Yo, you need a Nerdicon?

Available At
White River Jct. Only



Zero Gravity Frankie

Frankie

Who says fruit doesn't belong in beer!? This is a bright and spritzy refresher brewed with tart cherry and exotic citrus fruit. It's very light on the palate and the subtle flavoring of tart cherries is delightful.

This refreshing ale is a prefect way for Dad to quench his thirst after his never-ending battle against the lawn.

This beer is light on the palate and dry on the finish. Bursting with bold citrus notes and the subtle complexity of tart cherry, Frankie would be delighted to accompany you on all your summer adventures.

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.

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.
