  2. Merman NY IPA (5.8%) – A perfect blend of East Coast, West Coast and New England IPAs. Toasty. Hoppy. Juicy.
  3. Fangtooth Double IPA (9%) – An intensely aromatic, hazy double IPA. Dry-hopped with Lupulin powder, this beer hits you right in the nose with powerful aromas of papaya, melon and orange. Flavors of peach, blueberry and mango give way to a nice, warming finish.
  4. Dreamland Session Sour (4.6%) – Pleasantly tart sour made with sea salt and orange peel.
  5. English-Style Strong Bitter (5.5%) – This ESB has notes of caramel and biscuit, balanced by an earth and hop flavor. This SMaSH (state malt and state hop) beer is brewed exclusively with New York State malt and hops.
  6. Running Local (7.1%) – Chocolate chipotle stout brewed with chipotle peppers, aged on cocao nibs, from Coney’s 2019 homebrew competition.
  7. Spelt Parkway (6.6%) – A dry-hopped farmhouse style ale, with flavors citrus, black pepper and a bubblegum finish.
  8. Hectaweizen (6%) – A dry-hopped German-style hefeweizen made with 100 oz. of fruit-forward hops, with notes of clove, banana and grapefruit.
