Copper Turret Restaurant & Brewhouse – Belgian Draft Horse Tripel
A flagship beer, candi sugar and bubblegum dominate the nose. A crisp sweetness and full body from a blend of barley and wheat malts from NY Craft Malt make this libation dangerously quaffable. A delicate bitterness and spicy hop aroma comes from New York hops from The Bineyard and Mosher Farms in Madison County.
Dark, rich, and heavy; this Belgian-style stout is characterized by huge coffee and dark chocolate aromas balanced against Belgian dark fruit esters. New York malt and 100% hops underpin the heavy roast flavor, while Ecuadorian Fair Trade cacao nibs add a hint of chocolate.
Copper Turret Restaurant & Brewhouse – Cherry Valley Coffee Stout
A flagship beer, brewed as a collaboration with Peaks Coffee Company in Cazenovia, notes of Bing cherries and chocolate dominate the aroma. A grain bill laden with oats fives a rich silky body to balance against roasted barley and the Peaks coffee integrated into the beer. Perfect for a great morning.
Light yellow and hazy, with bold coriander and peppery spice jumping out in the nose of this traditional Belgian-Style Witbier. Delicate tartness along with bitter orange peel balance against coriander in the mouth.
Copper Turret Restaurant & Brewhouse – Morrisville Valley Stout
This beer is the coffee-free version of the Cherry Valley stout, leaving behind coffee and focusing on caramel flavors, roasted grains and a rich and full body from copious use of oats.
A variant of our Belgian-Style Stout, the Nitro version is creamy and smooth which mellows the roast of the black malt. Ecuadorian Fair Trade cacao nibs aromas with Belgian dark fruit esters show off a perfect fall beer.
A light, easy drinking lager, this beer is a malty alternative to The Crop. Brewed in the style of modern Oktoberfest beers brewed in Munich, the grain bill showcases 100% NY Craft Malt Vienna, giving a malty and slightly sweet flavor, then the beer is lagered for 3 months for a clean and crisp flavor.
Copper Turret Restaurant & Brewhouse – Standardbred Wet-Hop Saison
Brewed in the style of Belgian and French farmhouse ales, this beer lets the yeast shine with delicate aromas of hay, funk and spice. This beer was brewed with over 7 lb of wet Bineyard Cascade hops per barrel, that traveled from the field to the brewhouse in 4 hours. These lend a grapefruit balance to the saison spice characteristics.
In the bounty of the Central New York harvest season, we stumbled upon delightfully sweet and tart local sugar plums. We absolutely had to use them in a beer! The perfect candidate was our Belgian Draft Horse. The delicate tartness of the sugar plums brings down the sweetness of the aroma offering a bit of balance. The spicy hop aroma coming from New York hops from The Bineyard and Mosher Farms in Madison County still shows through, but the sugar plums take center stage. The sweetness of our sugar plums allowed for a secondary fermentation, boosting the alcohol content of the beer, but not making it any less quaffable!
We couldn’t use the sugar plums in just one beer! 15 lbs per barrel of sugar plums adds sweetness to the already crisp Haflinger witbier. A small amount of refermentation occurred, but the residual sugars add sweetness to the witbier. Light yellow and hazy, with bold coriander and peppery spice jumping out in the nose of this traditional Belgian-Style Witbier. Delicate tartness along with bitter orange peel balance against coriander in the mouth while the sugar plums accentuate the tart and sweet characteristics of the base beer.

A flagship beer, light, crisp, and easy-drinking, there is no substitute for a traditional German-style Pilsner.
