Tired Legs comes from brewer Kevin Robichaud who created the American IPA to celebrate his one-year anniversary of completing all 67 New England 4,000-feet (and greater) summits. Appropriately, all the hops, malt and yeast were sourced from Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
Flip Flops & Flannels is a single hop pale that we brewed last year with a visiting friend from Sierra Nevada. This year’s batch is hopped exclusively with Motueka hops. The Norwegian yeast also contributes to fruity esters by being fermented at close to 100 degrees — about 30 degrees warmer than most of our other beers.
So Long and Thanks for All the Mash is a traditional English-style pale ale made with a special batch of malt from Briess Malting Co. We used “Last Call Malt,” the final batch from the company’s now-decommissioned malthouse. The beer’s name is a nod to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy book series by Douglas Adams — an Englishman — but the sentiment is sincere.
See what else we’re pouring at the Tasting Room in Gorham…and look out for Local Harvest, our favorite fall beer coming out soon!
