The days are hot and it’s time for a nice cold beer! Here’s the list of rotating drafts at Mock Crest Tavern:

  • Double Mountain Kolsch
  • Angry Orchard Crisp Apple
  • HUB Organic IPA
  • Double Mountain Hop Lava

Angry Orchard Crisp Apple offers a crisp and refreshing cider mixed with the  sweetness of the apples producing a subtle dryness for a balanced cider taste. The fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make this cider hard to resist.

It pours a pale yellow color with a slight foam layer. The aroma is a mixture of smooth and sweet. It has an ABV of 5%  and IBU of 20.

Kolsch, brewed by Double Mountain is a light German Ale and produced with a light body, delicate fruitiness and rounded maltiness which is attributed to the unique yeast strain commonly used. The Kolsch is unfiltered and more generously hopped than its German cousin. It offers a 5.2% ABV and 40 BU.

Have a great week and we’ll see ya there!
