When we opened in 2012, one of our first offerings was a sessionable Belgian Saison. And while we don’t make that beer anymore, as a nod to one of our first brews, we bring you “Rodeo #2”.
Rodeo #2 is a Belgian Saison, but much bigger in alcohol than our original one. Clocking in at 7.5%, the alcohol is almost completely hidden under subtle notes of spice and clove from the Belgian Saison yeast. The mixed fermentation with Brettanomyces adds a dry farmhouse “funk” that nicely complements the Saison notes.
Left unfiltered, the beer is straw in color and light in body, and the dryness leaves you wanting more and more.

Turn that frown upside down... Rodeo Frown is the perfect thirst-quencher for the hot days ahead. A Belgian Grisette generously dry hopped, meaning you get all the wonderful wheat notes complemented by bright tropical fruit flavors. First brewed in 2016 and now back again, this is a beer you'll want to enjoy over and over again.

The 2nd in collaboration series with the DeCicco & Sons stores is a Kettle Soured Ale with Strawberries added during fermentation. What does that mean? It's a fruit-filled summer treat for the hot months ahead. Project DeCiccoWeisse is everything you want from a light & fruity sour ale... and at 3.5% ABV, you can enjoy it over and over again.
And why a beer for DeCicco & Sons? Because 1. We Heart Them, 2. They have a world-class beer selection in each store, and 3. They support local Hudson Valley beer like it's their job. So for those 3 reasons (and many more), it's a treat to brew this sour ale series with them.
