Lake Drum Brewing
TRaditional sour brewed with a dark malt
Farm Dog Sour
our first traditional sour. subtle notes of leather and citrus peel with refreshingly smooth finish.
Local NYS and Pacific Northwest hops create a juicy, citrus experience in a west coast inspired pale ale.
Resin, wet hop, shishito pepper, less bitter than standard India pale ale but similar in hop presence.
Light with a perception of sweetness at the end of this spritzy dry beer. Subdued bitterness. An easy drinker.
Ashy, dry with notes of caramel, chocolate, dried fruit.
double dog dare you
8.0% ABV 91 IBUs
Unlike many double IPAs, Double Dog is relatively dry and not cloyingly sweet. The high IBUs come off as surprisingly approachable. Notes of citrus and pine, some malt and caramel. Clear and slightly amber in color
Seasonal. Locally-picked spruce tips. Some hops are used early in the boil for bittering, no hops are used for flavoring so all of those flavors are from the spruce tips.
Aromatics: Resin, hoppy but subdued, slightly sweet not overly piney
Palate: Grapey sweetness, end palate strong round but 100% integrated, raspberries
g town brown
5.7% ABV 47 IBUS
An easily approachable brown ale that wants to put brown ales back onto everybody’s short list of things to do. Subdued notes of caramel, burnt chocolate. 100% of hops from Petersen Farms in Seneca Castle NY and/or Cobblestone Hop Yard in Ontario NY.
Traditional simple grain bill and hop schedule that allows for the expression of the subtle but complex flavors found in German and NYS malt. Dry finish
Roasted buckwheat from nearby Birkett Mills and an exhausting cereal mash form the backbone of this American stout. Pouring through the nitro tap adds a creaminess and body to this normally dry beer. Coffee and toffee flavors, dense tan head.
The Platypus Perry
Bartlett Pears Empire
OFF DRY 4.8% ABV
Focused acidity in the mid palate as opposed to end of palate makes this perry exceptional. No barrel aging, but had a wine lees addition added and settled notes of vanilla icing, white peach, kaffir lime, smarties candy and cotton candy
Rhode Island greening, northern spy, spy gold
sweet 5.5% ABV
after undergoing 2 fermentations, pleasant notes of candy apple and tannic apple throughout the body with honeysuckle finish.
