current draft offerings
The beauty of our small brewhouse is that we have the flexibility to keep our beers in tune with the seasons and current trends. Our menu changes often and we hope you'll always come to our brewery with a sense of adventure.
You're likely to find an IPA or two on our menu, but we're also passionate about funky saisons, using local and wild ingredients, and we'll always have something interesting resting in a barrel. Stay tuned for those super-limited releases!
Some of the Parts - 6.0 % ABV
In celebration of our friendships and our differences - we joined forces with Aeronaut and Winterhill Brewing Co. create a multi-iteration collaboration. What does that mean!?! We each have taken the same recipe, and brewed it at our respective establishments (licencing law FTW) with minor variations in hop character on each batch. That's three Somerville-Collab beers total!
Our version is Some of the Parts, a "Somerville Common" (lager yeast fermented warm) beer hopped with Huell Melon and Citra. This highly crushable, beautiful golden brew is popping with notes of sweet orange and cantaloupe.
6.4% ABV available on draft and in crowlers to go today.
Exquisite Corpse - 11.1 % ABV
Our incredible Imperial Stout brewed in collaboration with Pittsburgh's Dancing Gnome Brewery will be back on tap as an exceedingly small batch while we prepare bottles of it for our One Year Anniversary Beer Fest on May 18th. Crafted with Somerville own's Taza chocolate, liquid cacao and Madagascar vanilla bean, this batch has been barrel aged for additional complexity and flavor. Exquisite Corpse is deep, dark and chewy with an unbeatable silky mouthfeel and sweetness.
Available on draft only.
Bow St Session
House Ale - 4.9% ABV
One of the first recipes we ever brewed, Bow St Session is our house ale brewed to celebrate our place in Bow Market, paying homage to our space, its historical context, and the spirit of innovation we hope to cultivate. This session ale was brewed with Idaho 7 and Grungiest hops, which provide strong notes of stone fruit. This was crafted as an all-around accessible beer, stylistically unrestrained. It is medium bodied, with a light tropical nose and a softer hop bitterness.
Rotating IPA - ~7% ABV
Clip Art may be outdated graphics but these illustrations range in format and style, and so does our rotating IPA series! We start with a blend of pale malts and Mosaic hops for the base, then add an additional hop varietal to each version to take center stage in flavor and aroma. So far, we have brewed Clip Art Citra and Clip Art Azacca. Our original Clip Art included Michigan-grown Centennial hops, and that recipe will resurface again as well.
Look out for its following installments!
Oat Pale Ale - 5.9 % ABV
Melodic with notes of citrus and melon, Dream Pop is true to its namesake; a little alternative, but smooth. Using 25% oats in the malt bill gives a silky texture that balances well with Mosaic and a new-school German hop, Mandarina. This beer is unique and flavorful, and has been asked about enough that we'll keep brewing it if folks keep drinking it!
