Beer Fest






Enlightenment Ales

Enlightenment Ales - Biere Brut

Enlightenment Brut is based on a Belgian strong golden ale, Howe said. He said the beer has soft fruit characters, fairly spicy and very dry. It also has pronounced carbonation, which is typical of the style.

It is also a big beer, coming in at a hefty 11 percent alcohol by volume.

The beer takes three months from the beginning of the brewing process until it is ready to be sold, significantly longer than most styles. Howe has to go to Lowell every day and hand-turn each bottle 90 degrees, he said.

Howe said the beer is not the same as many biere de Champagnes.

“Most Belgian ones are very nuanced,” he said. “This is nuanced, but it’s also in your face.”

The best part of the Enlightenment Brut is the price. Howe said he expects the beer will retail between $16-$18, about half of the price of the next cheapest biere de Champagne.

new stuff

Jack Daniels Single Barrel Select

Single Barrel is matured in the highest reaches of our barrelhouse where the dramatic changes in temperature cause its color and taste to deepen further.  We still hand-select each barrel for its robust taste and notes of toasted oak, vanilla, and caramel.
