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.

ABV 5.0% (Alcohol by Volume)         IBU 25 (International Bitterness Unit)

    Exposinator Doppelbock

Exposinator Doppelbock is released every year on March 19th (St. Joseph's Day) as is the tradition with the German Doppelbocks. We use only the finest Weyermann Malts to give this beer it's big bold flavor. Deep reddish brown in color, Exposinator has a huge malty character. The malt flavor is a combination of toasted, bready and meloidins from the darker kilned malts. The malt carries through to the flavor and lingers just a bit before a clean hop finish. Brewed with Pilsner, Light and Dark Munich Malts with Hallertau and Magnum Hops.

ABV 8.2% (Alcohol by Volume)         IBU 25 (International Bitterness Unit)

NacktHopfen German Hopped Pale Ale

NacktHopfen is a American Style Pale Ale brewed with German Hops.  We used a generous amount of Magnum for bittering and copious amounts of Saphir and HallertauerMittelfruh for flavor, aroma and dry hopping. The aroma is a combination of spicy, peppery, earthy hop notes.  The Hallertauer gives more of the earthy notes while the Saphir contributes more of the zesty, spicy peppery characters.  The hop character continues through the flavor and ends with a clean long hop bitterness.  The clean bitterness of the Magnum Hop deceives the drinker as the bitterness seems light, but increases as you drink the beer.  This beer actually uses more hops than our IPA, but the noble hops give a full flavor without overpowering. Brewed with 2 Row Pale Malt and Caramunich 2 Malts with Magnum, Saphir and HallertauerMittelfruh hops. 

ABV 5.2% (Alcohol by Volume)         IBU 50 (International Bitterness Unit)

Russian Imperial Stout

Russian Imperial Stouts are a style that came about when English Brewers were sending huge malty roasted brews to the Russian Czars. These brews were hardy enough to get them through the long Russian Winters. Ours pays homage to these beers in both flavor and strength. The beer starts with a huge roasted malt character that fades to malty, sweet black currant and chocolate. It finishes with a hint of alcohol and hop bitterness, but the malty body covers most of the 11.2 % alcohol by volume and hefty hop finish. This beer was aged for over 10 months to allow the huge malt character to mellow and the alcohol to fade to the background. This beer is extremely complex and different subtle flavors can be found the whole way through the glass. The perfect beer for sitting in front of a fire on a cold winter day.

Upcoming Seasonal & Specialty Beers

Naked Dove Bare Bock

Bare Bock is a traditional German Bock Beer brewed to satisfy our malty cravings.  Bock Beers are traditionally released in the spring to allow for enjoying the warmer weather, but are still able to keep you warm on those chilly days.  Our Bock is brewed with 99% Weyermann Munich Malt and 1% WeyermannCarafa to give a full malty mouthfeel without being overly sweet.  The flavor is a combination of toasted malt, light caramel sweetness and a dry finish.  We boil the beer for 2 hours to aid in the color formation and to carmelize some of the malt sugars.  We then ferment the Bock cold with the famous Weihenstephan Lager yeast.  After 8 weeks of aging, the result of our efforts is a beer that truly reflects the old German Brewmasters saying, “… the true strength of a bock should only be realized after one stands.” 

ABV 6.5% (Alcohol by Volume)         IBU 25 (International Bitterness Unit)

Naked Dove Maibock

A German Golden Bock Beer, Naked Dove Maibock is brewed in traditional methods with only the finest ingredients.  The Maibock has a deep, complex malt aroma that combines sweet and bready characteristics.  The flavor smooths out to a clean crisp hop finish.  As with all well brewed bocks, the strength is deceiving and will only become apparent after several pints.  Brewed with WeyermannPils, Vienna, and Munich Malts and Magnum and HallertauerMittefruh Hops.

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.

ABV 5.6% (Alcohol by Volume)         IBU 60 (International Bitterness Unit)

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.

ABV 5.6% (Alcohol by Volume)         IBU 40 (International Bitterness Unit)

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.
