This series is a celebration of tasty local ingredients. The local VT is an assertively hopped ale, brewed with organic Vermont barley and Vermont hops. A generous dry-hopping highlights the engaging aroma from these local hops. Each beer is the Local Series is brewed with ingredients from a different state. The recipe stas consistent, so the flavor differences in each beer in the series result directly from the local terroir. Working with the skilled local farmers to craft this series has been an exceptional experience for us. We hope you enjoy the result.

Nice pale ale - tastes like a good pale ale, but not much hops in the aroma. I liked the maple one they did a little more than this one... I admit that my taste bros canít determine which state or body of h2o the water they use to make each type comes from, but someday maybe Iíll be sophisticated enough to tell the difference

Bottle shared at the cabin, NH. Pours clear, rich gold with a tight, off-white cream head. Big of toasty dough on the nose, tangerine and orange citrus. Medium to big sweet flavor, light tangy tangerine, some piney bitterness, light caramel, orange. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Medium sweet finish with light, sticky toasted sugars, some resinous pine, some more tangy tangerine, suggestions of lemon and honey. Similar to the ME Local, perhaps a touch less sweet and a bit more tangy. OK.

Side by side by side comparison. All 22 oz. bottles Vermont has the color, head and carbonation levels as the previous other two state varieties I sampled. The nose and flavor of this brew is much more geared toward a malty APA and the hops play a second fiddle. In fact I could really get much hop character at all from the brew. I really enjoyed comparing theses beers and the concept and marketing was brilliant. After all I tracked down 3 of the 4 bottles to compare them! It was a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Personally I feel the Maine was most pleasing to my palate.

From the 22 ouncer. Thereís golden tin foil glued to the bottle cap. I would not mind it so much if it was not glued to the top. So I removed that and tried to pour off the side that was foil-free and I saw a handsome medium amber or walnut color with a shjrt-lived head that leaves little lacing. The aroma is malty and yeasty but not very hoppy. The body is around medium and creamy.The tast begins by focusing on the sweet malts and yeast but as you work your way through the bottle the moderate bitterness and earthy hops emerge. A nice concept brewing with other stateís local ingredients.

Draft. Pours amber orange with a thin white head. Toffee sweet malty aroma, with some nutty notes and light hops. The flavor has sweet malts, floral hops, and light crystal malts. More like an average amber ale.

Draft at Blind Tiger with Streets. Pours a clear amber body with no head and light lacing. Aroma is light hops. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of fresh hops and light vanilla. It was interesting having this in between the Local Series NY and Maine because it sort of tasted like a midpoint between the two - where the vanilla is more constrained and the bitterness is mitigated.
