Bert's Better Beers' Draft Pick(s) of the Week:

HEFEWEIZEN

Easy to drink with a lingering, pleasant aftertaste. A rich, yolky-orange wheat beer, featuring the aroma of clove and fruit in perfect balance; refreshing on a warm day, with a hint of mandarin-orange-like acidity; huge effervescent head. Thick lasting foam that leaves an attractive lacing after every sip.

Rauchbier

RAUCHBIER

Dark with reddish tones and an off-white head with a rocky foam standing above the rim of the glass; as you bring it to your nose, you feel like you are eating a bar of chocolate in a smokehouse, full and rich with generous hopping to balance the flavor of beechwood smoked bacon.

VIENNA LAGER

Mozart played full-volume in the brewhouse as the Dovetail Vienna Lager was born. Copper in color, with a warm, malty character, it is brewed with 100% Vienna malt and Styrian Golding hops. May it make you grow a feather in your Alpine hat.

Bert's Better Beers' Draft Pick(s) of the Week:

APOSTROPHE IPA

Apostrophe IPA began as an experiment with just Mosaic hops. As it won our hearts, we continued to experiment and bring in old friends like Magnum Hops and Flaked Oats. What you have now is our favorite version showcasing that tropical citrusy Mosaic magic and solid malt backbone. We hope you enjoy! 

Details: Alc. 6.0% // IBUs 80 Draft, Bottles, Cans, Clap your hands.

Bert's Better Beers' Draft Pick(s) of the Week:

The Selkie Story

It all started with a trip to Scotland and a chance encounter with a seaweed beer. Unable to forget that memorable taste, Joanne returned to the States with a mission to bring it to the Seacoast.

In the summer of 2016, our first-ever, full-bodied Scottish Red Ale (4.9%ABV) was brewed with 60 pounds of locally harvested Sugar Kelp from UNH’s Aquaculture program. And so, Selkie was born. 

Selkie showcases a salty, briney, slightly vegetal flavor with a sweet malt body. Matt says it reminds him growing up near the ocean in California. 

“I always remember when I was a kid and my parents would take me to the ocean, and I’d go swimming and hours later after you’d been out of the water, you’d lick your lips and taste that ocean. And that was what I was getting off this beer, it wasn’t like, ocean right in your face, it was nice Scottish Red Ale, but when you were done you might lick your lips and taste this nice salty briney flavor.”

So what makes Selkie so unique (aside from the seaweed, obviously)? We partnered with the UNH Aquaculture program, who had been experimenting with kelp in their Steal Head Trout fish farms to help absorb excess nutrients produced by the fish. Lines of rope that had been inoculated with kelp spawn worked fabulously as a bio filter. So by growing and harvesting the kelp, a symbiotic relationship is created, making for healthy kelp and cleaner water!
