This is the award-winning original American brown ale, first brewed as a holiday specialty, and now one of our most popular beers year-round. Northern English brown ales tend to be strong and dry, while southern English brown ales are milder and sweeter. Brooklyn Brown Ale combines the best of those classic styles and then adds an American accent in the form of a firm hop character and roasty palate. A blend of six malts, some of them roasted, give this beer its deep russet-brown color and complex malt flavor, fruity, smooth and rich, with a caramel, chocolate and coffee background. Generous late hopping brings forward a nice hop aroma to complete the picture. Brooklyn Brown Ale is full-flavored but retains a smoothness and easy drinkability that has made it one of the most popular dark beers in the Northeast.
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.
Madison County’s Old Home Distillers offered us a collection of barrels, and we jumped at the chance to work with them. The first barrel-aged offering is from our head brewer’s favorite, Field Days Bourbon. This 100% corn bourbon is sweet, smooth and chock full of vanilla aromas. The beer aged in these barrels takes on those characteristics, mellowing the Belgian esters and roasted malt spice. The Ecuadorian Fair Trade Cacao Nibs chocolate flavors are elevated by the vanilla from the barrel making this beer a deliciously distinct and a satisfying collaboration!
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.

Copper Turret Restaurant & Brewhouse – Hinny Gose
Styled after a traditional Leipziger Gose, but with Belgian Witbier yeast, this ale is characterized by a slightly salty and sour flavor.

Then Hinny is finished with coriander, this combined with the Witbier yeast give a refreshing spice to the beer.
Copper Turret Restaurant & Brewhouse – Maple Bourbon Barrel Aged Belgian Draft Horse
Our core Belgian Draft Horse Belgian-Style Tripel was aged in a special barrel that first housed Old Home Distillers’ Field Days, and then aged Madison County maple syrup. Aromas of sweet bourbon and vanilla play nicely with the sweet aroma of the maple syrup and both are balanced against delicate oak character. The maple syrup provided additional fermentables, increasing the alcohol content and leaving a slightly boozy character. Maple, oak, and bourbon are prominent in the flavor, while the character of the tripel supports with delicate notes of old-world hops.
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.

These lend a grapefruit balance to the saison spice characteristics.

Maine Beer Company – a tiny beautiful something
a tiny beautiful something showcases a new hop variety, El Dorado. We started playing around with this hop last year. We brewed a pilot batch with this hop exclusively and one with it blended with some of our other favorite Northwest varieties. In the end, we decided that the El Dorado had such a unique and interesting character on its own, so we decided to brew it as a “single hop” pale ale. The aroma and flavor offer intense candied orange and citrus zest. A touch of flaked oats provide a rounded, silky mouthfeel. And like our other hoppy offerings, tiny was brewed to finish dry and clean.

Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project – Vieille Artisanal Saisan
Translated from French as “old-tradition”, Vieille is our barrel-aged classical saison. Using time-honored techniques, our saisons employ traditional methods to restore complexity and the rustic character lost in modern day saison. Saisons were the original wild ales, brewed for the farmhands to be a refreshing and sustaining beverage. Each batch of Vieille takes on a soft Brettanomyces character and a complex acidity while conditioning in our large oak foeders. After conditioning in oak, we lightly dry hop the beer to finish it, lending a subtle citrusy hop aroma. Leading with lemon and lime citrusy hop notes, a subtle herbal spice, and a crisp tart finish, Vieille’s character epitomizes artisan saison.

Its particular character our Gose gets thereby and by lactate fermentation.
