The Big Elm of Sheffield was a meeting place for celebrating the past, planning for the future and enjoying good company. Our hand crafted IPA is generously hopped, subtley assertive and decidedly balanced. We hope it reminds you to take the time to gather with friends and share a delicious beverage.

Bottle shared at RBWG, poured an orangish color with aromas of citrus, malt, pine and a touch of biscuit. Flavors are the same light pine and citrus hops, light bitter aftertaste, nice beer overall.

malrubius (2616) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Can from Table and Vine. Gold with chill haze and dense head and lace. Spicy herbal orange aroma with grass and toffee. Fruity peach apricot grassy nutty sweetness with very spicy hop finish fairly dry with lingering mouth tingling piney spiciness that sits on the lively carbo. Medium body. Slightly old school with the assertive bitterness but well made/balanced and pretty tasty.

thornecb (5547) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2016
Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white soapy head with medium retention recedes leaving gloppy lacing. Sour caramel aromas. Soft and thin with sour caramel and toffee upfront turning to warming, bitter earth and resin in the lasting finish. Slightly unpleasant.

A new brew from a new brewery which has several products appearing in coolers here in WMass. Pretty drinkable, poured from the can into a Lagunitas jar. It’s a fairly ordinary IPA, average looking, sufficiently hoppy and orangey with a moderate ABV. Unfortunately, for me, it has a lingering bitter and astringent aftertaste which will keep it off my good list going forward. Sheffield, where the brewery is located, has a population of 3,276. The rule of thumb here in rural Western Massachusetts is... good water plus low rent on an old mill equals prime new brewery territory. They are popping up like mushrooms!

Scopey (12720) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2015
Can. I imagine it pours golden - amber with a decent white head, but who knows. The nose is fresh, juicy, lemon sherbet, grassy, lemonade and limeade. The taste is crisp, bitter, piney varnish, lemon sherbet, sweet lime, earth, pepper and some alcohol boost with a dry finish. Pretty alright IPA.

bnokk (476) - Lee, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Can. Mission, Pittsfield, MA. APPEARANCE - golden color, clear but not fully see through. Nice foamy white head at the start. NOSE - slight pine scents with a hint of floralness. FLAVOR - well balanced pine flavors, come out at the beginning and linger Ling after the sip.

Bottle during RBWG. Pours a cloudy yellow with medium white head that lasts. The aroma is floral hop and pine. Medium mouth, grassy hop, light citrus, lingering bitterness, very good.

Slightly hazy golden pour. Thinnish white head recedes quickly. Nice aroma of hops and oranges. Slightly floral and herbal. Slightly medicinal. Bitterness isn’t super strong but it is astringent. Yet, there’s a nice hop character in there and solid balance. Pretty drinkable, especially out of the can.
