Bird Post 2021

Each year our team visits Smokedown Farm in Sharon, CT to get a sense of the season’s crop of hops. As we walk through the 9 acre field, we select the hops which we believe will contribute the brightest, most refreshing flavor for our Connecticut hopped pale ale, Bird Post. After harvest, we take half of our selection as whole-cones for use in the kettle, and half in pellets for dry hopping after fermentation. The first batch of Bird Post is always special as it utilizes the whole-leaf hops straight out of the kiln at Smokedown and officially launches another year of working closely with our State’s most renowned hop growers.

We will have Bird Post available for on-site pours and in cans to go at the tasting room throughout the weekend.

To pre-order cans, visit
Tasting room is open every Thursday – Saturday 2-7pm,  Sundays 12-5pm

Distribution Details for the week of October 11.

Along with a limited amount of Bird Post we will be delivering our recently released West Coast inspired IPA, Perfect Kerning, and a new batch of Helles Lager across Connecticut.

Here’s more about the beers:

Helles Lager
A bright, golden expression of Northeast grown Endeavor barley, with mellow background floral hop notes.

Perfect Kernin g

A brand new offering inspired by our favorite West Coast style IPAs.
Perfect Kerning has a welcome bitterness, layered with piney, citrus forward hops, and pockets of delicious specialty malt character. To bring a true West Coast element we selected our favorite hop varieties grown in the Pacific NW and incorporated tried and true California ale yeast into the fermentation profile. As you can see on the label, we think of this beer as bringing some Hollywood to the Hollow.

Awkward Hug

Awkward Hug was the first IPA we produced as a brewery and features Azacca® and Citra® hops. An embrace of the tangy pine, citrus and melon aromatics and flavor with a gentle body.

Pause & Reflect

Pause and Reflect is a seasonal porter brewed with non-traditional Connecticut grown adjunct grains; emmer (ancient wheat variety) and triticale (hard-red wheat-rye hybrid). These grains, combined with specialty malts roasted provide a rich, chocolatey, and easy drinking porter.
