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!

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.

Bottle.Black cherry and tea aroma. . Pink tinged apricot with a small creamy dense white head. Sweet black cherry and light malty flavor. Body on the light side of medium, soft carbonation.

A decent fruit beer (for a fruit beer).Aroma was like a bowl full of Fruity Pebbles soaking in a wheat beer. Pour was a nice light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was good but just like the same old fruit beer. A wheat beer with a nice berry aftertaste. Little carbonation hurt the beer. Not bad.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a reddish tint and a thick bubbly white head. Aroma of light roasted and caramel malts, and sweet cherries. Taste is cherry syrup, light caramel malt, earthy hops, and slightly watered down.

A bit of a malty nose along with the fruit. Appearance is nice, heading towards amber. Palate is a sticky sweet mess. No balance, or counterpoint, borders on undrinkable on a day you aren’t sweating.

12oz bottle - shit, I thought this was the Raibender Scotch Ale. It’s a good thing I like fruit beer. pours pale gold with white head. Nose is bad fruity yogurt. very fizzy and here’s the cherry flavor. A little smoky. "I spend my days and nights deranged!!!" mildly sweet and a tad tart.

Beerlando (3343) - 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 (3224) - Traverse City, 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.
