Windblown Amber Ale

Windblown Amber Ale is an American Amber Ale with a beautiful balance between the malt and hop characters. The aroma and flavor start with a blend of bready, biscuit, and caramel malt notes. This fades as the light, dry citrus hop character comes to the forefront in the beer's finish. This beer is a great "sessionable" Amber Ale that doesn't compromise on flavor. We brew it with American 2 Row, Weyerman Munich, Caramunich and Cararoma malts with Cascade, Liberty and Magnum hops. The Windblown Amber is fantastic for braising a variety of meats, pairing with Mexican foods and for use in sauces.

Story Behind the Name: Anyone who has visited the brewery has felt the Westerly winds as they cross the open space of the adjacent farm and bring their force against the brewery. This beer was named in tribute to those breezes, brutal in the winter, refreshing in the summer, but almost always present.

    Naked Dove Nice & Naughty Christmas Ale

You know the Holiday Season has arrived when Naked Dove’s Nice & Naughty Christmas Ale arrives.  We brew a Malty Red ale as the base and lighty spice this holiday favorite.  Best described as a ‘Liquid Gingerbread Cookie’ this wonderful beer will have you coming back for more.  Brewed with 2 Row and Caramunich Malts and Magnum and Columbus Hops.

Naked Dove Hopulus Localus Harvest Ale

Hopulus Localus is a Harvest or Wet Hop Ale that explodes with flavor.  We use Local Hops from Petersen Farms, 8 miles from the Brewery, and use them the same day they are harvested.  We used a ridiculous 10 lb / barrel brewed to give the beer a distinct hop aroma and flavor.  The Wet hops give the beer a softer, grassier, slightly herbal hop character that grows as you are drinking the beer.  There is just enough malt character to support the hop character while allowing the locally grown hops to shine.  Brewed Cascade and Willamette Wet Hops.

ABV 65.6% (Alcohol by Volume)         IBU 50 (International Bitterness Unit)

Naked Dove Clarity in the FLX IPA

If you are a fan of big, fruity unfiltered IPAs then this beer is for you.  We are using two new hop varieties, Azacca and Pekko, along with Citra and Mosaic to give adistinct tropical fruit aroma and flavor.  The aroma is a blend of mango, guava, pineapple and grapefruit.  It bounces between all the various aromas and seems to change with each sniff.  The flavor continues with that tropical fruit, but quickly fades to a long clean citrus hop finish.  The malt plays a secondary role in this beer with it just being enough to support the hops.  We are also using rolled oats in the beer to give a touch more body and smoothness to the beer.  Although this beer is clear, it is not filtered.Traditional brewing methods allow us to drop the beer bright to allow the hops to shine through without any of the proteins or yeast clouding up the flavor profile.  Brewed with 2 Row, Vienna and CaraRed Malts with Oats and Azacca, Pekko, Citra and Mosaic Hops.

Naked Dove Whatsis #4

Our 4th edition is a tropical fruity IPA that is a beautiful combination of all that's best with Citra and Azacca Hops. The aroma is a combination of Orange and Tangerine (really, it smells like a liquid creamsicle). The hops continue with a big mandarin orange flavor and a light clean hop finish. Over 3 lbs of hops per barrel were used to give this complex hop aroma and flavor. The malt plays a supporting role and we use some oats to round out the malt character giving it a silky smooth texture. Brewed with 2 Row and Carared Malts with Oats and Citra and Azacca Hops.

Upcoming Seasonal & Specialty Beers

Starkers IPA

Starkers IPA is an American India Pale Ale that showcases all aspects of what hops can deliver. The beer starts with a very hop forward aroma and flavor that combines notes of citrus, spruce and pine. Our generous hop additions, especially our dry hopping, give the beer a very full hoppy mouth-feel. The mouth-feel is accentuated by the malt body, which is just strong enough to carry the hops. The flavor finishes with a hop bitterness, although overshadowed in the beginning by the flavor and aroma, it starts to come to the forefront as you drink more of the IPA. This beer is brewed with American 2 Row, Caramunich, Munich and Cararoma malts and Cascade, Amarillo and Simcoe Hops. It pairs well with Spicy Curry dishes, strongly flavored cheese and Asian Food.

Story Behind the Name: Our IPA is our most British Style of beer. The term for Naked in Great Britain is: Starkers. If someone is fully unclothed, they are totally starkers, hence the American term: stark naked.

45 Fathoms Porter

Our 45 Fathoms Porter is as deep and dark as the depths of Canandaigua Lake. We brew our Robust Porter with six different roasted malts to give it a deep long roasted character. The flavors change and develop as you drink the beer, giving an array of chocolate and coffee roasted notes. The flavor is deeply complex in its roasted character, but is careful not to make the jump to being burnt or astringent. It is brewed with American 2 Row, Caramunich, Brown, Pale Chocolate and Simpson and Crisp Chocolate Malts with Roasted Barley and Magnum, Amarillo and Simcoe Hops. This beer is perfectly paired with strong flavored cheeses, chocolate and seafood (particularly scallops and shellfish).

Story Behind the Name: For those who have enjoyed our porter, you will have found its color deep, dark and impenetrable. Thinking of something to represent those qualities, we needed to turn no further than Canandaigua Lake. At its deepest point, it registers an approx. 45 Fathoms deep. Whether the two headed serpent truly resides at the bottom depends on your belief in local lore or the amount of pints of porter you have enjoyed.

Berry Naked Black Raspberry Ale

Berry Naked, our Black Raspberry Ale, is our interpretation of what a fruit beer should be! Berry Naked starts out with a light black raspberry aroma that carries through to the finish. After the fruit fades the malty flavor takes over. The fruit is balanced by the strong toasted character of the malty base beer. This is a fruit beer that still lets you know you are enjoying a beer. The base beer is brewed with 2 Row, Caramunich, Cararoma, Munich and Dark Munich Malts with Liberty and Magnum Hops. We utilize a fruit puree during fermentation and a natural flavor after filtration to give it the delicate black raspberry character. This beer pairs beautifully with cheesecake and makes wonderful dressings.

Story Behind the Name: This one we left up to our Facebook Friends. When our creative juices ran dry, we posed the naming question on Facebook. While many great names were put forward, none elicited the immediate smile on our faces and those of our Facebook Faithful as Berry Naked. The people have spoken.
