Our claim
to fame.

We are only the second craft brewery on the entire East Coast to have it's beer for sale in cans. And yes. We've seen the episode of Cheers when Norm got the job as a beer-taste tester. No, we don't need one.

Another period

Our Elm City Lager is named after New Haven, CT.

New Haven is referred to as the Elm City. Few elms remain for they have succumbed to Dutch Elm Disease, or simply left town.

The Elm City Lager is a true, all German beer.

The hops, malt, even the yeast used in the fermentation are all imported from Germany.

Another period

Each holding tank holds about 1,000 gallons of beer.

There are 5 tanks in the NEB brew house. With each gallon equalling 8 pints and each pint holding around 10 mouthfuls on the average, you would have to swallow 400,000 times in order to drink all of the tanks dry.

One more period

Gold Stock Ale is a seasonal beer.

It makes infrequent appearances at area bars. Therefore, if sighted, drink as much of it as possible. Responsibly, of course.
