HERE'S WHAT'S BREWING
This extremely easy drinking Pale Ale has been a regular in our lineup for a few years. It is caramel in color, balanced with subtle fruit, spice, and floral hop notes. It finishes at 5.6% ABV and 44 IBU.
This light pseudo-lager was an experiment that just stuck. It was the first time we used Norwegian Kveik yeast in a beer and we've since used it in a few different styles. Despite the high fermentation temperature, this one is pretty crisp and clean. This is your all day drinker for any time of the year.
Most recipes we come up with get tweaked in some way -- this is not one of them. We originally brewed this American Brown Ale in 2007 and haven't changed it at all. We love the toasty, biscuity and subtle chocolate flavors balanced out by the 38 IBU. It's a bit high for the style at 7% ABV, but sometimes that's how things have to be.
New England Style IPA - Strata
The first time we smelled a Strata hop we were struck by all it had going on. We knew it could stand alone in a nice, fluffy, soft New England Style IPA so we gave it a shot and the results exceeded our expectations. The strawberry, tropical, cannabis and grapefruit notes get along so well with the stone fruit esters from the yeast and pillowy softness from the grain.
The first time we made this, one of our Pickett faithful said "this tastes like summertime in a glass" and we feel that about sums it up. The light body and balanced finish don't get in the way of the orange, coconut, pineapple, and grapefruit notes from the hops. 6% ABV is a bit high to call this a British Style Golden Ale, but sometimes we can't let those pesky standards get in the way of a good time.
New England Style IPA
An insane amount of hops (for us) go into this beer and results in a bursting of fruit flavors that include pineapple, mango, and grapefruit while keeping the fancy wineauxs interested with a distinct white wine finish. It is 7.4% ABV and 33 IBU with that characteristic hazy look and soft mouthfeel you expect from a New England style IPA.
