1687 Brown Ale
Full flavored American style ale with distinctive roasted taste.Learn more...
Charter Oak’s 1687 Brown Ale
Charter Oak’s 1687 Brown Ale (this was the year the legend of the Charter Oak took place, and Wadsworth hid the document in the majestic Oak Tree – later to become know as The Charter Oak) is an American style which is slightly more robust than the traditional English Brown Ale. This beer is brewed to a dark copper shade and is somewhat sweet and malty with distinctive toasted flavors from both our premium specialty roasted and chocolate malted barley, also allowing for a faint undertone of caramel. This style is lightly hopped for balance and this ale will prove to be a wonderful selection for a sessionable beer. Our medium-bodied, limited bitterness and hop aroma make this an excellent choice. Look for our 1687 Brown Ale at your favorite watering hole today. Beer Stats: 6.2% ABV; 30IBU; 25SRM Best if served at 48 – 54F (9 – 12C) Tasting Notes: This American Style Brown Ale and its distinctive brown label was first introduced by the brewery in June of 2012. The American style is somewhat unique because so many of the brown bodied beers are considered an English style, which tend to be sweeter. The 1687 Brown Ale pours a rich dense brown shade with a faint citrus aroma. Our brewery uses both malted and roasted barley in this beer for a total of seven types of barley which allow for a wonderfully complex taste, yet well balanced. Of particular surprise is just how clean this beer finishes, leaving no residual on the tongue. Interestingly enough, the 1687 Brown Ale also enjoys a very light mouth feel and at 6.2% ABV it enjoys a year round spot at the bar. This beer is very sessionable and will have you saying “I’ll have another”! Our 1687 Brown Ale pairs great on a cool summer evening or a bitter cold winter night.
India Pale Ale
A balanced American style ale with full flavor and big hop aroma.Learn more...
Charter Oak’s Wadsworth India Pale Ale
Charter Oak’s Wadsworth India Pale Ale beer (named after Captain Joseph Wadsworth, for it was he who actually rode off to hide the Charter in the Charter Oak Tree) is our American style IPA with plenty of hop aroma (dry hop twice) and a mild bitterness, yet crisp, refreshing and not over the top! Our Charter Oak IPA style will please your palate with more than your typical ‘every day India Pale Ale’ and you’ll be sure to taste our grapefruit citrus overtone backed with notes of pine and floral aroma and taste. Our beer is a medium bodied beer with a rich amber shade. Plenty of choice, high Alpha hops that we hand select, yet well balanced, with no bite, and not too intense for the best and freshest locally brewed IPA from our specialty malted barley. Beer Stats: 6.5%ABV; 65 IBU; 12SRM Best if served at 48 – 54F (9 – 12C) Tasting Notes: Our Wadsworth India Pale Ale , and its bold red branding, is a well balanced brew at 6.5% ABV; plenty of select malted barley, and an aggressive dose of premium hops, we think you will enjoy the taste and aroma of this style. Charter Oak’s IPA pours with a full head of foam and a rich amber shade. As you bring your glass up to your mouth, one can not help but enjoy the aroma of the citrus, floral, and piney from our fresh, finishing hops. Indeed, a familiar nose for most American west coast India Pale styles. Once the liquid reaches your tongue, our hops are loud and clear and as this IPA reaches the back of your palate, the hops only become more flavorful and intense. Having said this, our IPA is not too bitter and one could argue, with all the hoppiness of this this well balanced style, it is a beer that can be savored all night long.
Royal Charter Pale Ale
Superbly drinkable West Coast ale with moderate hop finish.Learn more...
Charter Oak’s Royal Charter Pale Ale
Charter Oak’s Royal Charter Pale Ale beer (named after the Connecticut charter hidden in the Charter Oak Tree) is the little brother to our IPA, but still brewed with plenty of flavor and hops. This top fermented ale is solidly a west coast Pale Ale style; not too sweet and not too bitter, but complex enough to not disappoint you. From your first sip and scent of a citrus and floral aroma, a solid backbone of the Cascade and Centennial hops can be detected. We hope you will enjoy this well-balanced, medium-bodied, and deep golden appearance in our Pale Ale. We can assure you it is not intensely hopped up resulting in only a subtle bitterness and dry finish. This is a beer you can drink all night long! Beer Stats: 5.5% ABV; 45IBU; 13SRM Best if served at 46 – 50F (8 – 10C) Tasting Notes: The Royal Charter Pale Ale, with its elegant green label, was introduced in October of 2012 as our second of four core Charter Oak Brewery beers. This west coast styled beer pours a distinctive amber shade and enjoys a nice head of foam. The Royal Charter Pale Ale beer enjoys a citrus nose and is designed to be a sessionable beer. The beer starts off a well-balanced ale with plenty of malt backbone and the hops become ‘alive’ on the back end. Unlike the typical west coast styles, the intensity of this full flavored hop does not become any more robust with each sip or pint, but rather remains stable. At 5.5% ABV and a full taste this Ale could soon become your favorite.
