Seasonal and Special Brews

Seasonal and Special Brews are not always available throughout the year.

CROWN & ANCHOR BRITISH ESB ****

This is an Extra Special  Bitter, in the tradition of old-time English Ales. Not as bitter as an IPA, tis beer is made with high quality floor-malted Maris Otter Malt, along with Scottish and Irish heirloom malts. The sweetness these malts provide is balanced out with five varities of English hops, giving this beer a well balanced and earthy bitterness.  ABV 5.0%, IBU 45

FOUR BRIDGES GOLDEN ALE

This traditional German lager features the malt sweetness privovided by true German Pilsner Malt, along with the crisp clean taste know for lager beer. We’ve bittered this brew with classic Noble Hops, making for a refreshing beer that’s definitely meant to be enjoyed on a hot summer day! ABV 5% IBU 30

GENERAL GEORGE’S PORTER

Named for our nations first president , General of the Continental  Army in the American Revolution, and known to have visited the building formerly know as Neitzers Tavern on our property(now La Rienda), George Washington was no stranger to New Jersey. In fact, when setting up camp with his soldiers during the war, he was known to have brought along some of his own homemade Porter Beer! Our take on the style is brewed with English malts to provide a chocolate and caramel sweetness, and it’s bittered with English and, of course, American Hops to provide the perfect balance for this beer! ABV 5.5% IBU 40

GERMAN VALLEY ALTBIER

Just like German Valley is the old name for Long Valley, so to our Altbier is named for the old style of brewing in Germany…Ales! Unlike the rest of Germany which gravitated to Lager Brewing in the 19th century, the brewmasters of this style stayed with their tried and true ale… their Altbier. Clean and crisp like a lager, but still an ale so you taste the caramel notes of the malt, along with the floral and spicy notes of the Noble Hops. A treasusre that did not disappear with the advent of Lager Brewing, and one that we can enjoy in the “New World” today! ABV 5.25% IBU 40

GRIST MILL HEFEWEIZEN

Our German Style Hefeweizen is brewed with wheat and pilsner malt, along wit a few other specialty greains. It is light yellow in color and unfiltered, as per the traditional brewing style for this beer. We add a light dose of German Noble Hops for bitterness, as well as for aroma. Hefeweizens are great thirst quenching beers for summer time! ABV 4.5% IBU 15

This beer gets its name from the Obadiah LaTourette Grist and Saw Mill located on East
Mill Road, east of the Pub. The circa 1750 grist mill was a focal point for commerce in
Long Valley during the 1800’s and operated until World War II. It is currently being
restored by the Washington Township Land Trust.

NEW JERSEY IPA

We’ve taken the recently popular New England IPA style and have given it a bit of a Jersey twist! Our version incorporates locally grown New Jersey Malted Barley! Add in some wheat and flaked oats, along with plenty of American Hops, and what you get is a hazy, juicy IPA, full of various citrus flavors, like orange and grapefruit. Not as bitter as your typical West Coast IPA, our NJ IPA is all about balance… malty sweet enough to stand up to this beers high hop backbone. Cheers! ABV 6.5%  IBU 70
