Beers at the Tap Room

Zwickel Bier Bavarian Pale Lager - 4.5% ABV

German pale malt, Sterling hops, and a single decoction give this unfiltered lager its elegant subtly. Nothing hits you over the head, and that is the beauty of restraint. A perfect beer for an afternoon of liters. 

The Standard - Czech Pale Lager - 4.4% ABV (12°P)

Czech floor malted barley, soft water, Saaz hops, double decocted mash and ample lagering time brings Plzen a little bit closer to Salem, Served through our imported Czech dispense taps in traditional Czech mugs. "The Standard" is a step up in ABV from our Session Pils, and while the Czech Republic would call this standard strength beer, it still falls in our session range at 4.4% ABV.

Tmavy - Czech Dark Lager - 4.0% ABV (12°P)

Tmavy is Czech for dark, and you guessed it, this is our Czech dark lager. Also double decocted, it is rich, malty and roasty but never bitter or sweet. A wonderful balance of malt sugar to Czech Saaz hops land this beer soft and dry. 

Slanted & Enchanted - Dry Hopped Hefeweisse = 4.5% ABV

We took a classic approach to the Bavarian Hefeweisse - decoction mash, Andech's yeast strain, German wheat & pale malt - and then dry hopped with the new German hop varieties Mandarina Bavaria and Hull Melon. 

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 of Citra and Mosaic. 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.

El Hombre Dorado - Single Hop Pale Ale (El Dorado) - 4.0% ABV

A single hopped pale ale showing the citrus flavor and aromas of the hop El Dorado. Nothing complicated, every bit satisfying. 

Land Speed Record - Pale Ale - 4.5% ABV

A blend of three hops, all of which we have on draft as single hop pale ales. See how a blend changes the dynamics of flavor and aromatics. Simcoe, El Dorado and Mosaic are combined in the dry hop, and we'll leave you to pick out what the hops are contributing. Or, just drink it, it's delicious. 

Dog & Pony Show - Single Hop Pale Wheat (Citra)- 4.3% ABV

An American Pale Wheat Beer brewed with Massachusetts malted wheat, pils malt, oats and 100% Citra hops. Although a wheat beer, it pours only slightly hazy and is packed with fruity hop aroma and a delicate but noticeable hop flavor.

Plenty For All - Single Hop Oat Pale Ale (Mosaic) - 4.5% ABV

An oat based pale ale that celebrates juicy British malt and hopped with only Mosaic hops grown here in the US. Plenty for All - no waiting in lines (except in Halloween season), no scarcity, no whales. Drink up, we'll brew more. 

Guest Brewer Beers (brewed at Notch)!

Our guest brewer series is simple - we allow our friends to brew any beer they desire in our brewery. Their beer, their recipe, their labor, their name on the board. It's not a collaboration, but an opportunity for our friends to try something new and explore new territory. For Notch it's an opportunity to open up our brewery to friends, and allow for guest beers on tap (we can only serve what we make under our brewing license). It's also an excuse for us to hang out together in an otherwise busy industry.

Starting December 8th: Idle Hands - Wooooo! Weizenbock - 7.5% ABV

 

Beers out in the world

 

Session Pils - Czech Pale Lager - 4.0% ABV

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.

Black Lager - Czech style Černé Pivo - 4.0% ABV

Our cold weather session lager, built for multiple pints when the days get short. Black in color yet modest in ABV, our Black lager has an upfront malt sweetness with notes of roast and chocolate, yet finishes medium dry without cloying sweetness. This is a Czech staple, and one we love to brew each winter. Enjoy!
