Knockout Blonde Ale

Your favorite blonde is waiting for you at your local beer store for a limited time. It boasts a powerful blend of North American malts and is chock-full of Cascade and Centennial hops. The zippy punch of hop aroma is sure to be a knockout at any spring barbeque. Available now until it’s gone!


Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime

It’s time to welcome back a warm-weather favorite to sip under the sun. The Scrag Mountain Pils Salt & Lime is a special version of our traditional Czech Pilsner. It’s infused with lime juice and sea salt for a well-balanced dance of crisp and tart affectionately known as a “Scragarita.” Available in May and June.


Scrag Mountain Pils

Our refreshing Scrag Mountain Pils is inspired by traditional Czech Pilsner style. We brew this house lager as a tribute to the aquifer deep beneath Scrag Mountain where Waitsfield gets its fresh town water. Available May through August.


Super Session #5

Super Session #5 is the newest addition to our Super Session Series with Cashmere hops for a light, refreshing brew. All our Super Session beers are brewed with the same malt base and specialty malts but feature a different single-hop variety. The series allows our fans to taste the difference between each hop and choose their favorite! Available now through the end of June in 12oz cans (12 packs) and 16oz cans (4 packs).



Sip of Sunshine

Our staple IPA is packed with juicy tropical fruit character, bright floral aromas and delectable layers of hop flavor. Pour mindfully, inhale deeply and enjoy a tropical vacation in a can. Always available!

Little Sip IPA

This low ABV cousin to Sip of Sunshine is perfect for quenching your thirst as you reach the summit of your favorite hike. It’s the beer you grab for a victory celebration after that birdie during a golf game, and it keeps you company while you mow the lawn. It pairs best with outdoor adventures and never disappoints! Coming in at 6.2% ABV, it is delightfully crushable. Always available!

Peril Imperial India Pale Ale

Peril is now back by popular demand! This Imperial IPA will kick off May with a dangerously smooth flavor achieved by copious dry hopping and cold conditioning. You’ll no longer have to suffer through the perils of a life without this delicious imperial IPA! Beer release on Friday, April 30th



App Gap Saison

Mid-May, we’re releasing App Gap Saison, our Belgian style farmhouse ale. This brew boasts a slightly spicy character with fruity yeast-driven esters and an effervescent, dry finish. The crisp ale pays homage to the iconic mountain gateway to our favorite Valley. Beer release on May 14th.


Kingdom Trails IPA

Kingdom Trails IPA will be back on May 28th with the same great taste to support the same great cause. It’s a soft, refreshing IPA with a mild bitterness. The brew is intensely fruit-forward with a floral nose to get you back into spring riding days on the Kingdom Trails.

This palate tickler was brewed in collaboration with the Kingdom Trails Association as part of our Good Brews for a Cause initiative. A portion of the proceeds goes toward sustaining a vital trail network in Northeast Vermont by donating to the Kingdom Trails Association.   Now you can preserve the land by drinking beer!



Sisterhood Sour

Our Sisterhood Sour is an approachable sour brewed with tangerine, hibiscus and apricot for a bubbly treat yourself moment. As a Good Brews for a Cause, every bottle sold supports Pink Boots Society, an organization that advocates for women in brewing. Available now for a limited time!


Stony Hill Porter

Our Stony Hill Porter is a smooth blend of chocolate and caramel notes underscored with a subtle smokiness and a smooth, dry finish. This brew was created by Sean Lawson and the brew team in the original 7bbl brewery in Warren, VT — also known as the Wizard’s Workshop. Available now for a limited time!
