Mystic Bridge, India Pale Ale

   

A mild earthy IPA with hints of citrus, inspired by one of the most recognizable landmarks in CT, Mystic Bridge.  A great example of a year ‘round New England IPA. Put a Bridge in your Fridge!

Old Yankee Ale, Amber Ale 

 

Our flagship brew,  a medium bodied, American Amber Ale, that has a great up-front malt taste with a refreshing hop finish. An outstanding session beer for any occasion. BA score of 100.

Perry's Revenge, Scotch Ale


A Scotch Ale, malty and complex mahogany colored with hints of chocolate. To commemorate Charlie Buffum's historic find of the wreck of the USS Revenge off the coast of Watch Hill, Rhode Island. Last seen in 1811, the USS Revenge was Oliver Hazard Perry’s first Naval Command before his famous victory in the battle of Lake Erie during the War of 1812.  This dark and stormy brew summons to mind the mystery of things long lost in the bottom of the ocean.

Stonington Glory, Pilsner 

 

This Czech-style pilsner sports a light golden color and a firm white head. Crisp and refreshing, it has a dry mouthfeel and a pleasant floral aroma with a hop finish.   Its Czech authenticity is grounded in the Czech-yeast we use, and the Aromatic malt and Sterling hop give it its distinctive dry, flavorful taste.  Stonington Glory celebrates our town’s victory against the British in the 1814 Battle of Stonington, when we turned away a British fleet’s 160 guns with a mere two cannons.  Great with: chicken, salads, salmon, bratwurst, berries.


Raise a glass to the stubborn, courageous locals of Stonington.  Victory never tasted so good!

Incredibly Pretentious Ale,
Double India Pale Ale

   

Get your pinkies up and put on your best beer snob face. A Double India Pale Ale above the rest with distinct mango and stone fruit characters yet a strong malt backbone. Incredibly Pretentious Ale is brewed with the most pretentious hops we could source including Galaxy, Mosaic, Simcoe and Citra as well as a healthy dose of arrogance.  With the beer world saturated in IPAs, we at Cottrell decided to take a different approach, this is our tongue in cheek nod to the IPA beer snob.

JanCember Fest, Märzen Style Lager

   

The only Oktoberfest that's good January through December! JanCember Fest is brewed in a reflection of people's palates. There's no reason you shouldn't be allowed to enjoy a refreshing oktoberfest in March and that's why we created JanCember Fest. So no matter what month it is, let's tear up that Oktoberfest Banner and start celebrating with The All Year Fest Beer!
