Bright was created to be a clean and elegant showcase for one of our favorite hops - Mosaic! It is crafted with a simple malt bill and fermented with clean American Ale yeast to create a flavor profile that is more a function of its vibrant fresh ingredients than an expression of yeast character. Bright鈥檚 aroma is a cornucopia of citrus dank鈥 The taste follows suit with notes of grapefruit, sweet berries, and clementine with a gentle orange rind finish. She is dry, soft, and adequately bittered resulting in a very approachable yet pungent Double IPA.

Moment pours a gorgeous hazy yellow in the glass and gives off aromas of juicy fruit gum, pineapple, and passionfruit.

Our Double IPA! We smell a ton of peach on the nose, with complimentary notes of orange and passionfruit.

Expressionism is an imperial stout brewed with an array of Chocolate, Roasted, and Brown Malts. Its flavor is a function of complex and carefully selected ingredients and precise brewing application. It has gentle stout flavors, eschewing heavy bitter roast characteristics in favor of notes like cocoa powder, dark candy sugar, caramel, and dark fruit. It is best enjoyed in a snifter while allowed to warm to 50 degrees. It will keep well when kept cold for up to 6 months, evolving in the can to become more integrated, complex, and rewarding with time. We encourage you to try one fresh, and then again over several months to reveal evolving layers of complexity. Expressionism is the second installment in a new line of dark beers to be brewed in the Autumn and Winter of 2018!

Green is a unequivocal new favorite at Tree House. Over the years we have resisted the urge to brew GGGreennn as we have worked very hard to make Green the very best beer it can be with a carefully refined base beer and very large kettle and dry hop additions. It's easy to overdo it, but over time we have learned how to adjust our process brewing the base beer to successfully accommodate larger and larger hop additions without imparting off putting characteristics. For GGGreennn we pushed those principles to the extreme. The result is a richly hop saturated beer featuring notes of pineapple, guava, dried jackfruit, tropical fruit and citrus. It carries a richness about it that is unique to classic Green, and yet never challenges or tires the palate. It is a pleasure to drink all the way through the glass. It is a beer we are proud to share with you, and hopefully it can serve to enhance a meaningful moment for you this summer.

Brewed in the spirit of experimentation and the celebration of our 3rd anniversary. What we did here is took a whole bunch of Mosaic and Amarillo hops, a classic punch of citrus purveying goodness, and added them to the Julius dry hop. The base beer is exactly the same, but the dry hop is altered tremendously. The result is a beer with all the deliciousness of the base beer with a layer of added citrus complexity. Like Devil Julius or something.

Though originally brewed as a "Christmas" beer, this piney IPA, brewed almost exclusively Chinook hops, was so enjoyable we decided to put it into the 'year round' rotation. With it's golden yellow color, rich aroma, and drying body, it's hard to stop drinking this one. Sap is a deceptively soft beer brimming with distinctive notes of grapefruit, mango, pine, and earthy spice. With waves of diverse flavor, it is perhaps our most complex IPA. It is the result of our uncompromising dedication to fresh, progressive, delightful beer. We hope you enjoy it with laughter, good cheer and in the company of those you love.

I brewed an American Pale Ale - Beneficiaries of Chance - in celebration of marrying the love of my life, Lauren (aka Tree House L-Dog). On the eve of our first anniversary, I brewed another beer for Lauren, In Perpetuity. It hopes to celebrate foreverness - in love, passion, and regardless of circumstance - the notion that what is good and beloved will last forever. In Perpetuity is brewed with a simple malt bill and two of my favorite hops - Citra, and Nelson. It pours a hazy bright orange in the glass and mixes notes of tropical fruit with a strong citrus backbone. Soft, and eminently drinkable. I hope you enjoy it.

A sneakily complex beer, "TWSS" exhibits flavors of milk chocolate, dark roasted coffee, caramel, and even a hint of smoke. It is absolutely loaded with flavor for a 5.6% beer, and the inclusion of Lactose takes the edge off of the dry, roasty notes found in a typical stout. The adult chocolate milk shake. . . with this batch being very chocolate heavy! A beer that is notorious for converting 鈥榩ale鈥 beer lovers to the dark side!

This beer was conceived with the intent to push the concept of Doppelganger to the limit of flavor and intensity. Both the kettle hopping rates and dry hopping rates were increased while keeping the base beer the same. The result is intense, but also surprising in its balance and softness. The mouthfeel is viscous and coating with flavors of overripe mango, dank citrus, and tropical fruit balanced by a sharp but pleasant finish. A treat to warm you up as a true New England winter takes hold!

Our interpretation of an Extra Special Bitter carries light bitterness and a gentle earthy noble hop character from Fuggles hops. The hops are balanced by an airy fruitiness and a rich base of flavors evoking caramel malts, brown sugar, and hazelnut. It is a wonderful and simple beer we find best paired with fish and chips, smoked meat, roasted chicken or, ideally, a day on the river.

JUICE MACHINE (Double IPA - 8.2% ABV) -Juice Machine was originally devised and brewed to support our very first trip to Extreme Beer Festival in 2014. It is essentially a marriage of the King Julius malt bill with a hopping schedule more intense than than Very Green. The use of Magnum, Columbus, Amarillo, Citra, and Galaxy creates perhaps our most complex beer with unapologetic flavors of mango, creamy orange sorbet, papaya, and passion fruit with wave after wave of juicy hop flavor. In spite of its intensity, it is pillowy soft and drinks like a true pleasure. It is a mess of hop flavor that takes us to a place that few other of our beers do. It鈥檚 hop nirvana.

Don鈥檛 let the name fool you - this beer is loaded with notes of rich red grapefruit, apricot, and earthy citrus. A supple mouthfeel and full body help lend balance to the pleasant and complex onslaught of flavors. It just feels right.

A special Imperial Amber Ale brewed in remembrance of Nate鈥檚 grandmother. Late last month, Barbara Lanier gave up her ghost and the impact of her time here on Earth will not soon be forgotten by the many who loved her. A fiery Irish spirit who imparted deep values of dedication to family and love, 鈥淢a鈥 was certainly one of a kind. This beer mirrors her spirit with sharp, flavorful notes of resin, pine, and citrus, backed up by a rich caramel base and a medium body. A very special release and available for the first time on St. Patrick鈥檚 Day Weekend. Drink to honor 鈥淢a鈥 and reflect on those recently lost, but never to be forgotten. If not, you鈥檒l get the paddle.

A kicked up version of Haze, our Double IPA, Very Hazy is a beer that makes us Very Happy! Very Hazy conveys all the beautiful flavors of Haze, but with even greater depth and potency. Pungent grapefruit notes greet your palate while an underlying current of soft tropical fruit dances in the background. Just the right amount of bitterness balances the sweet fruit flavors while a velvety soft mouthfeel make you easily (and dangerously!) forget this one clocks in at 8.6% ABV. A huge and beautiful beer that maintains softness and delicacy.

Super Sap is an imperial interpretation of Sap brewed with the spirit of the holiday season in mind! It is intensely kettle and dry hopped resulting in an immensely hop saturated beverage. Don鈥檛 be fooled by the name - Super Sap pours a hazy yellow color in the glass and emits aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, & papaya. The flavor follows suit with a pulpy grapefruit note as the predominant characteristic. Super Sap finishes gently with a soft pine-like bitterness buoyed by a fluffy mouthfeel. We hope it can contribute positively to a festive celebration this holiday season.
Super Typhoon

Super Typhoon is a rendition of Hurricane that features amplified additions of Simcoe and Citra in both the kettle and the dry hop. Additionally, process modifications make for a fuller bodied base beer capable of absorbing the additional hop charges without becoming abrasive or astringent. The result is perhaps our favorite amalgamation of hops in our short history. We taste heavy notes of tropical fruit and passion fruit from the Simcoe blending seamlessly with orange sherbet notes from the Citra. An airy mouthfeel and a creamy body makes for a beer that never becomes burdensome to drink, and gets better as you move through the glass. We are excited to share it with you.

King Julius is an American Double IPA brewed to be an exceptionally flavorful, juicy, and hop saturated beer while never tiring the palate. Its vivid citrus aromas give way to flavors of orange creamsicle, mango smoothie, and a bounty of fresh tropical fruit. We find it to be supremely soft in the midst of an onslaught of flavor...a beer we are quite proud of.
