the-frog

 

As the third of the Courageous Cat trilogy, The Frog is a very flavor-and-bitterness-balanced IPA that continues through to the finish with the Mosaic hops.

 

Hey Jalapeno Jack Growler Customers: We had one of five kegs that was not up to our jalapeno standards. Please read!

This was a big, fun, busy day! Mid afternoon, we realized one of our kegs was not properly spiced. We only filled a few growlers from this keg, but if you bought a fill that was not up to par, PLEASE contact us. We will give you a free refill plus a complimentary one.

We know how disappointing this experience can be! Fatorangecat@comcast.net or 860-881-8045. jalapeno-jack-for-pepper-pic

Jalapeno Jack   5.5% Cream Alefullsizerender1

Cream ale infused with a generous amount of jalapeno peppers. Our process creates a unique brew with the aroma and flavor of jalapeno without the heat. Add a wedge of lime for a refreshing variation.

Forgive Me Father  7% IPA

Forgive Me Father is a step back to the traditional IPA rather than the New England style IPA, with centennial and cascade hops.

Minute Mouse   8% Double IPA

This second brew in the Courageous Cat trilogy blends Amarillo, Mosaic and Citra hops. The Amarillo blends to bring out the best of the other hops.

Talky Tina   7.5 % Belgian Saison

Porcelain Doll heirloom pumpkins from DeFranscesco Farm, maple syrup from Rick’s Sugar Shack and honey from Peter Engel Farm.

Once we discovered that Porcelain Doll heirloom pumpkins create the subtle, balanced flavor we were looking for, naming our Halloween season beer Talky Tina was a must:  See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSy8Ko1vSKQ
