• Reverie Brewery Current Line Up

    Our list of beers awaiting to be sipped at the tasting room.

DRAFT

Banana Stand | Hefeweizen | 5.7%

There’s always money in the banana stand. OK, there’s actually no bananas in this beer, and it’s not actually a stand BUT there is a pleasing banana flavor brought on by the yeast we used.


We additionally took our time with this beer during the mash to help those yeast extract some more banana flavor from the heavy amount of wheat malt that was used. This is a dry wheat beer with unique esters and phenols of banana and a subtle hit of cloves complimented by a modest addition of Lemondrop hops.


So how much clearer can we say say, “There’s always money in the banana stand!”

Man-Go On With Your Bad Self | Mango & Lime Kölsch | 5.1%

We all have that friend – master crafter, planning queen, pink hair having, Fast and the Furious loving, vaccine appointment SLAYER. No? Too specific?

Well surely we all have a friend we can always count on, someone who is always there for you. And if you’re lucky, someone that will refresh their browser endlessly to book you convenient vaccine appointments sooner than seemed possible.

Cheers to all the great friends out there. 🎶We’re all in this together🎶

Sourry Not Sourry | Gruit with Spices | 4.2%

Beer exploration gives us a bad itch. And baby, we’ve had the baddest. You holdin’ something savage. You can have this can, have this (ah). And it’d be nice if it had hops or wild yeast ya, but nah.


Sourry Not Sourry.


We made this beer for everyone, but we have to dare to all you sour lovers and hop heads out there to try it. You’ll be amazed by a beer made without hops or wild yeasts. This beer was made with Elderflower, Green Cardamom and Cracked Fennel. Delivering a surprisingly tart and session-able beer with notes of spearmint and licorice.

Out on the Brown  | Brown Ale | 3.4%

First we took you to the the Borough of Brown, now we’re gonna take you Out on the Brown. Because we like you and want to show you off. Just like we’re showing off this brown ale with roasted malt, chocolate character a medium body just ready to be show off all around town. It has a low hop bitterness and ABV allowing the malts some prime time to shine. We hope you enjoy!

Oo, A Vacation | NEIPA | 5.4%%

An experimental IPA made for the first time. This beer is brewed with a pils base malt and flaked emmer from Thrall Family Malt in Windsor, CT and hops from the great state of Michigan!

POURS 10oz: $5  | 16oz: $8      GROWLERS 32oz: $8  |  64oz: $16       CANS: $16

Waterfall | NEIPA | 7.2%%

A ledge waterfall only partially touches the bedrock as it falls. A cascade waterfall descends over rocks that look like steps. A cataract waterfall is big, powerful, and dangerous. And the list goes on and on of your favorite type of waterfalls. Well get ready to add this one to your list.


The waterfall you’re holding in your hand will flow over your lips and through your gums to say hello to your tummy with pleasant notes of ripe stone fruits, mango, guava, and citrus from heavy additions Rakau and HBC 586 hops.


The perfect companion for sipping on when flipping through your “best waterfalls of 2017” photo album while on the back porch in your rocker. If you listen closely enough, you can hear us creating a waterfall of our own with you as we pour one of these in a glass. Can you hear that? Yeah. You can.

Cold Brew | Coffee Porter | 7%

Wake up. Get dressed. Get coffee. Go about your day. Wake up. Get dressed. Get coffee. Go about your day. Wake up. Get dressed. Start to sweat?! Get cold brewed coffee. Go about your day.

Summer is the season for iced cold brewed coffee. It’s less acidic and less bitter than your standard cup of Joe. We wanted to pair that coffee profile with a beer that was made in a similar fashion. We not only cold steeped coffee from Redding Roasters to make some delicious cold brew, but we cold steeped our dark grains to reduce the amount of bitterness introduced into this beer.

The process is a bit more time intensive, but the results are worth it. This beer has a smooth body which allows more malt sweetness to shine forward than your standard porter. The addition of Kenyan coffee adds a full body coffee richness you’d expect in your morning routine. One sip and you might just reconider that morning routine one more time.

Oolong for the Limes | Berliner Weisse | 3.4%

Collab with Phinney’s Local Grocer

This straw colored wheat beer has tastes of clean lactic sourness that is balanced out by tartness and salty black lime + grassy oolong tea curated by Phinney’s. While there seems like there’s a lot going on in this beer you’ll be happily surprised by how well the flavors meld to deliver on a refreshing summer sipper.

This Berliner Weisse was curated by Phinney’s with black lime and oolong tea.

*Black lime made at Phinney’s. 

*Nantou Four Seasons oolong tea from In Pursuit of Tea.

Totes MaOats | Oatmeal Stout | 4.2%

You want to come to come to the mall with me later? I have to get some new shoes. Totes MOats, dude. Maybe after you can help me move my furniture around, my girlfriend has been asking. Totes. MA-oats. Sweet and then if you wouldn’t mind, maybe you could help me hang some drywall. MaOats, bro.

Just like having a great friend this beer wont let you down. A session-able oatmeal stout with notes of chocolate and roasted malt.

We Totes MaOates this beer.

TAPROOM CAN POURS & CANS TO GO

Double Dipper  | DIPA | 9.1%

It seems too easy to steal from your employers sometimes. A paper clip here. A post-it note there. 3 hours to research that new sofa you need for the living room. That’s called time theft my friend. It’s also known as “double dipping”. And don’t worry… your secret is safe with us.


We brewed this beer to take the edge off of that stress you feel after heavy hours of double dipping and not working on that sales deck because you needed to get the best fantasy line up this coach has ever coached!


Just like the name implies, it’s a Double IPA with Citra hops. Perfect for relaxing those tense shoulders after a hard day’s work.

POURS 10oz: $–  | 16oz: —      GROWLERS 32oz: —  |  64oz: —       CANS $16

Redwood  | West Coast IPA | 7.2%

Fun fact, the proper name for redwoods are Sequoioideae. Another fun fact, West Coast style IPAs are still just as delicious as they ever were.

We know there are a ton of New England style IPAs on the shelves these days, and you’ll probably be seeing us reach for one of them from time to time. But sometimes, sometimes we need to remember our roots.

West Coast style IPAs helped the craft beer category make a name for itself, so we wanted to try our hands at bringing another one to the table. This IPA has been generously hopped with Cascade and Nugget hops to bring out the bitter and piney flavors we come to love from the style. We hope you enjoy!

Just like the name implies, it’s a Double IPA with Citra hops. Perfect for relaxing those tense shoulders after a hard day’s work.

Pug | NEIPA | 6.2%

Well, I think if we’re going to get a dog we need one with some real character. No, not the Labradoodle, it’s like a Ron Perlman with low shower pressure. Ugh, no, not the Shar Pei it’d be like having Gordon Ramsay harassing you every time you serve him food. Now… maybe… maybe the French Bulldog, it’d kind of be like having a wacked out Jack Bla…

Oo, A Pug! Now YOU my squishy little friend are the Jon Lovitz of dogs! Oooohh, ACTING! Hahaha, remember that, remember that from SNL? HAHAHA! It stinks! Hahaha, can you just see the two of us on the couch, saying “It Stinks”, just like the critic?! Jon you’re coming home with papa!

Get Pug excited. IPA. Sorachi Ace and Cascade Hops.

Flexural Strength  | Wee Heavy | 9.2%

Most people tend to take their work home with them. Sometimes it manifests as repetitive grumblings to your loved ones and other times it means you wont eat fish cause Jerry brought in ANOTHER tuna fish salad sandwich today…


This beer however is inspired by a dream the brewer had when we were installing the floor for the brewery. In it a thick slump of concrete drops to the floor and a void forms where you might expect a mouth to be requesting him to “add more peanut butter”. Well this is what happens when you follow your dreams.


A Wee Heavy Ale with peanut butter, enjoy this one with caution.

Little Piggy | Spiced Amber Ale | 7.3%

This little piggy went to the market. This little piggy started the smoker. This little piggy had roast beef because if he’s going down, Bessie is too! This little piggy had none. And this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way to the party because he brought this beer with him. As far as we’ve heard, 4 out of 5 piggies agree that BBQ is delicious.


This beer is a celebration of the sweet flavors found in meat cooked over the open flame- spice from Szechuan peppercorns, sweetness from molasses and brown sugar, and a kick from cayenne, all blended harmoniously in this refreshing amber ale.


We may have this nursery rhyme wrong but this beer is just right.

BARREL AGED BEERS

Barrel Aged Small Batch Series #1| Imperial Stout | 12.6%

This imperial stout is aged 9 months in Litchfield Distillery bourbon barrels and modeled after an old fashioned cocktail – so it includes cherry, vanilla and orange peel.

Oh The Wonder | Imperial Coffee Stout Aged in Basil Hayden Barrels | 9.1%

And, Oooo the wonder.. mmhmm.. felt the lightning. Last summer when you were workin’ on your night moves with our Coffee Imperial Stout, we were working on our own night moves and aging some of that delicious stout in bourbon barrels.

Seven months later our collaboration child with BD Provisions and Rooster Malt is ready to enjoy with sipping pleasure. The delicious chocolate, sweet maltyness and delightful coffee flavor from the beer are now well complimented by notes of vanilla, oak and a mellow bourbon sweetness.

So grab a glass and let us wonder at your night moves.
