India Pale Ale
Avalon takes inspiration from our favorite approaches to the modern IPA from both sides of the Atlantic, to the west coast. Brewed with Golden Promise & Pilsner malts with a dash of wheat and oat malt, Avalon manages to provide the generous mouthfeel of an East Coast IPA with some solid West Coast structure and a Dutchess Ales must; classic British balance. Hopped with a lovely array of expressions from Motueka, Denali, Centennial, Palisade, and Magnum - Avalon shows nectarine, apricot, juicy citrus, lime zest, meadow flowers and cedar wood…with a hint of something tropical.

Heliotrope Pale Ale is a Fall & Winter seasonal ale brewed to a glorious roasted gold with Marris Otter, Oat Malt, Spelt, and a dash of various roasted wheats and barley. Hopped with Athanum, Centennial and Glacier that give delicate aromas of woodsy spruce and cedar with subtle accents of herbs, grapefruit and lemon. With a generous mouthfeel and balanced spine, the beer feels like a bit of throwback to when the West Coast was taking inspiration from the great ales of the English midlands

German Style Helles Lager
Ketzer Lager is a Franconian inspired Helles, a style that has long been close to our hearts. Striving to reflect the pure balance, nuance, and quality found in this traditional style, Ketzer is brewed with German Pilsner malt, just a kiss of Vienna and Light Munich and hopped with selected Perle, Hallertau Mittelfrüh, and Saphir hops. A gentle biscuit malt character and a noble floral, spicy hop aroma prevails with notes of wildflower honey, citrus zest, alpine herbs and a hint of peppercorn. To ensure that classic mouthfeel and expressive mineralty, Ketzer is unfiltered and naturally carbonated, leaving nothing but joy.

Dutchess Ales began as a project for us to recreate the delicious, balanced traditional real cask ales we know from the UK here in the US. In recent years, we have found joy in creating a series of 'hybrid' ales, blending the aspects we love most about US and British brewing culture. We hope you find them refreshing, balanced, innovative and of the highest quality.
