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 Just Mediocre Sour and Pale Ale

We brewed two separate beers and made 3 different beers for 2017 Rochester Beer Week.  We brewed the same Red Ale recipe twice.  The first we treated as a normal brew and the second we kettle soured overnight with Lactobacillus Debrueckii.  The beers were fermented in separate tanks.  Just Mediocre is a blend of the two beers.  The beer starts out with an aroma that has a bit of citrus tropical hop characteristics with a hint of lactic sourness.  The hops come through quickly in the aroma and then the clean lactic sourness takes over the palate.  The beer finishes with a long clean sourness with a hint of hop bitterness.  Brewed with 2 Row Pale, CaraRed and Roasted Barley with Mosaic and Ekuanot Hops.Blended at a ratio of 60% Not Bad (for a local beer) Bitter and 40% So So Sour.

Naked Dove So So Sour

This is our Red Ale brewed for the Rochester Beer Week that was kettle soured with Lactobacillus Debruekii.  The beer was brewed as traditionally would but we then cooled it down to 110 F and pitched a lactobacillus debruekii culture.  We let this sit overnight and the pH went from 5.2 down to 2.9.  We then fermented with our normal ale yeast and dry hopped as we did with its sister beer (Not Bad (for a local beer) Bitter).  The beer has a strong lactic sourness in the aroma with a hint of hops in the background.  The beers maltiness gives enough body to keep the sourness in check.  The beers finish has a long clean tart sourness that lingers just long enough without being overpowering.  Brewed with 2 Row Pale, CaraRed and Roasted Barley with Mosaic andEkuanot Hops.  Kettle soured with Lactobacillus Debruekii.

Naked Dove Roll in the Hay Farmhouse Ale

Our Americanized Farmhouse ale goes back to the roots of the style.  Long ago, farm brewers made low alcohol, thirst quenching beers for the farmhands.  Our Roll in the Hay is a light, unfiltered golden ale that has a fruity aroma, light malt body and a clean crisp hop finish.  Perfect for having on a hot summer day to quench even the biggest of thirsts.  Brewed with 2 row Pale and Magnum and Mt Hood Hops.

Upcoming Seasonal & Specialty Beers

Naked Dove Z'Higgi Pils

We brew this traditional Czech pilsner with the world’s best malt and hops to create a pale golden lager that is both bold and smooth.  The base of the beer is the malts from Weyermann that give it a smooth, clean malty character that is surprisingly complex.  Hints of bready and baguette malt aromas and flavors are with the spicy noble hop characteristics.  The beer ends with a clean crisp noble hop flavor and bitterness that create a perfect end to the beer.  The beer is complex yet very drinkable.  Brewed with Pilsner, Vienna and Carapils Malts with Magnum and Saphir 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.

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.
