Beers at the Tap Room
At the Swans - Czech Pale Lager - 4.2% ABV (11P)

Polotmavy - Czech Amber Lager - 4.4% ABV (12P)
Sweet toasty malt aromas, spicy Saaz hop flavor, rich malt character that finishes dry. A very old style of Czech lager, Polotmavy has seen a resurgence in its homeland as of late. Polotmavy translates to "half dark" in English. Double decocted, long lagering time, naturally carbonated.
Tmavy - Czech Dark Lager - 4.4% ABV (12P)

Rauchbier- Bamberg Smoked Lager - 4.4% ABV (12P)

Beers out in the world
Session Pils - Czech Pale Lager - 4.0% ABV
Notch Session Pils salutes the session pale lagers of the Czech Republic: crisp, herbal, and hoppy. The Czech culture is a beer culture, and their beer of choice is this low gravity pale lager known as Světlé Výčepní. Enjoy it served fresh through our Czech tap system!
Left of the Dial - IPA - 4.3% ABV
Celebrating modest ABV of British IPAs, yet with the passion fruit aromas of US hop varieties, Left of the Dial uses British malt, hard water and a new wave hop profile. The base malt is Fawcett Golden Promise, along with a touch of Fawcett caramalt and oat malt. And that “IPA is strong” stuff? All myth. Just ask us.
Infinite Jest - Hoppy Pale Wheat - 4.3% ABV
An American Pale Wheat Beer brewed with malted wheat, Pils malt, oats and Equinox hops. Although a wheat beer, it pours only slightly hazy and is packed with fruity hop aroma and a delicate but noticeable hop flavor. Don’t expect the banana, clove, orange or coriander flavors and aromas of Germany or Belgium, but do expect infinite fun.
Saison - Belgian Farmhouse Ale - 3.8% ABV
Born of worker’s beer, Belgian farmers brewed Saison for the harvest where seasonal workers consumed 5 liters per day for hydration. This traditional lower alcohol content beer has a dry, spicy and refreshing finish. Brewed with MA wheat, hard water, and a traditional Belgian yeast strain.
