Get your brew back on with festive new beer releases for fall on the Bucks County Ale Trail. Visitors traveling to Bucks County’s 20 (and counting) breweries can sip their way to a free T-shirt by downloading the Ale Trail passport at VisitBucksCounty.com/AleTrail, and checking off five or more breweries.
– Hazel’s Brunch Stout: A stout brewed with hazelnut and coffee from Homestead Coffee Roasters’ Arise for this taproom-only release (6% ABV)
– Cinnamon Vanilla Stout: This stout is flavored with real vanilla beans and high-quality cinnamon; the flavors are subtle and not over the top (6%)
– TBD Cinnamon Vanilla Stout: The name is yet to be set, but the flavors are already; stay tuned for this tasty tap later in the fall
Great Barn Farm to Glass Tap Room
– Two Kids No Cash Double IPA: Great Barn is doing their part to fuel the economic recovery by giving you 8.2% ABV on your investment. Brewed with Pennsylvania-grown and malted barley, flaked oats and wheat, this double IPA is packed with flavor. It is smooth and juicy with restrained bitterness, also dry-hopped with Citra and Mandarina Bavaria. Online pre-orders and farm pick up available, as well as in cans and on tap (later in the season) at the New Hope taproom.
– Snow Eater: A SMaSH Harvest Ale brewed with Avery Mountain Chinook Hops and Munich I Malt
– Pine2Pink Ale: A pale ale with strawberries, cherries and vanilla, double-dry hopped with Cashmere. The fruit gives this beer a wonderful aroma and fruity aftertaste. Cashmere hops bring smooth herbal and melon notes, while the vanilla works to knot the flavors together. This drinkable pale ale is 4.7% ABV. A portion of the proceeds from Pine2Pink Ale go to support Pine2Pink, an organization in Bucks County which supports the cost of daily living for local women with breast cancer.
– COVET Pineapple Mango Sour Ale: Fun and whimsical, yet deep and seductive, COVET is designed to be the fruited sour series that you yearn to possess. Brewed with wheat, oats and a bit of milk sugar for a tiny tinge of sweetness to temper the tartness, the beer is then conditioned on a luxurious amount of pineapple and mango puree, giving way to an unbridled explosion of tropical fruit goodness. The ale aims to transport tasters to paradise, which proves difficult these days. (6.9% ABV).
– Those Aren’t Pillows: Named after Planes, Trains & Automobiles, this brew is packed with sweet potatoes, butternut squash and mini marshmallows. Spiced with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves along with milk sugar and dark brown sugar. It’s then conditioned on Maple Syrup and Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. Think of a sweet, sweet potato casserole with mini marshmallows. Served on nitro. (9.4% ABV).
– Prop-tober Fest: If you long to visit Germany’s Oktoberfest, the Prop-toberfest (Marzen) brew can give you a preview with its German malts and hops (5.8%)
– I’d Tap That: A hazy pale ale, with subtle notes of pine and darkness. This beer is aimed to please both pale ale lovers and New England IPA lovers.
– Double Mosaic: Expect a smooth and creamy Double IPA that highlights one of the brewery’s favorite hops, Mosaic. Oats were added to the mash to help create a smooth and soft mouthfeel. (8.2% ABV).
