Our Solar-Brewed Beers

We brew with water, barley, hops, yeast and occasionally wheat or oats. Our beers are unfiltered and unpasteurized with no other additives or preservatives. We use copper finings for clarity (vegan). 

Over the course of the year, the beers we serve and sell vary.  
Here is an overall list of what our brewer creates:

  • Ice Glen IPA: a big and bold traditional India Pale Ale with a balanced hop and malt finish
  • Black Bear Stout: black and creamy with a rich, roasted flavor
  • Barrington Brown: a northern English style brown with a full-bodied finish
  • Hopland Pale Ale: a copper-colored American style pale ale.  Highly hopped, with a bold aroma and flavorful finish
  • Berkshire Blonde: our lightest beer; it still has great body
  • Raspberry Ale: a light beer with the refreshing taste of raspberry
  • Vienna: a light, European style beer
  • Firecracker Imperial IPA: 8 1/2%, our Independence Day ale
  • Mankin's English Ale: a light English style session beer
  • Wedded Bliss: a Dortmunder style lager
  • Bavarian Wheat: a German style Hefe
