Beer Stories
Brewery folklore tells a story about a train engineer with a passion for the taste of Railbender Ale. With every stop he made in Erie came an equal number of stops at our brewery. One extended visit to our fermenter left the engineer in a rather befuddled state of mind. On his fateful trip out of Erie that evening, his train mysteriously derailed. The engineer swears that a huge black cherry tree had fallen across the tracks as the culprit. No such tree was ever found, but the front of the locomotive was spattered with hundreds of red sports. In tribute to this folklore our expert brewers introduce Derailed Black Cherry Ale – brewed with fresh sweet black cherries and the finest malted barley to create a truly cherrylicious ale. Please enjoy responsibly, as we would never want you to get derailed!

nearbeer (3774) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2013
12 oz. Clear amber-golden with a lasting half inch of creamy foam. Nose is overly microwaved popcorn. Taste is cherry cola, corn, and earthy wood. Light body is very carbonated and pretty well balanced for a soda.

burg326 (3764) - Florida, USA - APR 29, 2013
12 ounce bottle, poured a light amberish red color with aromas of light tart cherries, candy, and some sugar. Flavors are artificial tart cherries, light grain, and some hard candies, meh....

zach8270 (3502) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 18, 2009
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold color with a fizzy white head and some sediment. Aroma is stale black cherries mixed with some rye and some candied sugar. Flavor is very tasty. Lots of black cherry notes come through but sadly disappear quite quickly. Leaves a slightly dry and sour aftertaste.

Cybercat (3371) - Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2009
Pours a nearly opaque honey golden amber with not much head. Aroma is malty with an overtone of cherry and just a bit of sweetness and hops. Flavor is malty, and the cherry taste tends to dominate but is not overwhelming; it is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy. Smooth and lively, it has a nice malty, hoppy, fruity finish.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours almost clear, with a unique, purple-rose tint. A small layer of smooth, light pink foam settles in to a thin rim, a soapy wash leaving few, amoeba-like spots behind. The nose is sweet and soda-like, artificial black cherry syrup showing strong against not much else. The saccharine, sugary nature of this brew carries over to the flavor. It’s basically a cherry soda pop clone. It would seem there’s not a single hop in this brew, as there is literally zero bitterness...just a sweet cherry twang. Fizzy and syrupy, even the palate resembles a soda more than beer. Is there even any alcohol in this thing? Not my style.

Silphium (3173) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2009
Bottle. Translucent straw body, thin tight off-white head. Nose of cherry syrup and grassy hops, light. Light body with good mouthfeel, with grassy hops, biscuity, nutty malts, and cherries. Quite easy to drink.

reggiedunlop (3109) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Pours a clear honey color with a medium white head. Aroma has some light maltiness...bready...and subtle cherry notes. Flavor showcases the cherry and has some caramely malt backing to it...certainly not tart, vinous or sweet...id rather one or more of these qualities were present to make it less boring. Light silky mouthfeel and a brief mild cherry finish.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a lot of head. Nice malty flavor with a light tart finish.
