Currently on Tap at Area Two:
Table Terroir - A low alcohol at 3.7% dry, full-flavored ale brewed with Connecticut grown malt and hops. Fermented with our unique yeast strain captured in our Hop Yard. Full of fruity, spicy aromatics and flavors. This table beer is 100% local! Available To-Go.
Brett IPA -This 6.8% “wild” IPA uses our house mixed fermentation blend of farmhouse yeast and three Brett variants. It takes twice as long to ferment compared to conventional IPA’s, and delivers a nice contrast between fruity funkiness and a mild resinous character from the hops.
Calva - Calvados, an apple brandy from Normandy, France, is traditionally aged in wooden foudres. We acquired one such vessel and aged our ale, dubbed Calva, inside for nine months to capture its unique essence. At its core, Calva is a crisp, slightly soured brew with an apple bouquet. You’ll find notes of brandy and pineapple with an oaky dry finish in this 7% brew. Available To-Go.
Rum Barrel-Aged Passion Fruit Gose - Pleasantly tart, tropical fruit notes balance a mixture of oak, vanilla and sugarcane from Jamaican rum barrels in this 7.8% ale.
Brett Saison - A 6.6% saison aged 7 months in stainless fermenters, this beer is fermented with a wild yeast strain captured from our property. We also mix in our house blend of Brett and the final fermentation yields a farmhouse ale that is dry, funky, fruity and lightly spicy.
Dark Cherry Sour – A unique, 6.4 % sour ale fermented with wild and cultured yeast strains and a mix of bacteria in four distinct stages, aged on wood and then plentifully fruited for a complex, refreshingly acidic beer. The mixed-fermentation process creates a subtle funk while the dark cherry adds a juicy tartness and slight tannic flavor.
Prickly Pear Sour – A unique, 6.4% sour ale fermented with bacteria and also with wild and cultured yeast strains. It is then aged on wood and abundantly fruited with real prickly pear cacti for a complex, refreshingly tart beer. This mixed-fermentation process delivers subtle funk notes while the prickly pear adds tropical and citrus fruit notes.
Whiskey Sour'd – Inspired by one of the world's most classic cocktails, this 8.8% ale was aged for well over a year in Kentucky bourbon barrels where it developed a lemony tartness softened by notes of vanilla and oak. Available To-Go.
Brett Noir – Brett Noir is fermented with pinot noir grapes and Brett Bruxellensis yeast, and then aged nine months in French Limousin Oak and American White Oak foudres sourced from two venerated Napa Valley vintners. It’s a complex, dramatic ale with mild, funky fruit and wine flavors that hits at 6.5%. Available To-Go.
Bourbon Aged Cherry Quad – We took Two Roads Cherry Quad and aged it in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. With intermingling notes of cherry and bourbon this 13% brew is a definite sipper.
Blueberry & Açaí Sour - A unique, 6.4% sour ale fermented with bacteria as well wild and cultured yeast strains. It is then aged on wood and abundantly fruited with real blueberries and acai berries for a complex, refreshingly tart beer. This mixed-fermentation process delivers subtle funk notes while the blueberry and acai add lush notes of berry.
Pineapple Sour D - A 6.4% sour, double dry-hopped NEIPA brewed with pineapple and hemp extracts. It’s a fruity, tart brew with commingling earthy flavors and aroma from the hops and hemp.
Kalamansi - A 7.5% acidic refreshing brew with an intense citrusy aroma and bright, tropical notes of oranges, lemons and limes.
Norwegian Farmhouse Ale - A simple, rustic farmhouse ale brewed in the Norwegian tradition using a special Kveik yeast. This variety of Kveik is notable for its pineapple, mango and tangerine characteristics. To bring it back home a bit, we used a 100% CT grown form of ancient wheat called emmer from Thrall Family Farms in Windsor, CT.
Peach/Raspberry Synopsis: A unique 6.5% sour ale fermented with bacteria and wild and cultured yeast strains. It is then aged on wood and abundantly fruited with peaches and raspberries for a complex, refreshingly tart beer. This mixed-fermentation process delivers subtle funk notes while the peaches and raspberries enhance with stimulating acidity and berry notes.
Currently Available In Bottles to Drink or To-Go at Area Two:
Blood Peach Lambic-Style Ale 2019 – Aged for two years in oak barrels, this 7% sour ale owes its lushness to the succulent Blood Peach.

Kicked the draft but still available in bottles to drink at Area Two or take home! 375ml
