Fire Island Lighthouse Ale 

Amber Ale / Red Ale · 5.2 ABV · Brewed by Fire Island Beer Co.

 

Fire Island is known for being easy going with a lot of character, so Fire Island Lighthouse Ale has been crafted the exact same way. A soft carbonation and light caramel finish make Fire Island Lighthouse Ale easy to drink, yet it has the toasty round body of a classic American Ale to give it real substance. It’s a beer for all seasons, all foods, and all friends. Or as we like to say, the kind of beer you want to have a beer with.

Fire Island Red Wagon IPA 

India Pale Ale (IPA) · 7.0 ABV · Brewed by Fire Island Beer Company

 

The beer is clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. There are aromas of alcohol and caramel malts in the nose. The taste is similar to the smell and also has a light amount of bitterness. Some alcohol is present, although it’s not as strong compared to the smell. This beer seems to taste more like a hybrid between an amber ale and an IPA.

Fire Island Sea Salt Ale 

Golden Ale/Blond Ale · 5.5 ABV · Brewed by Fire Island Beer Company

 

A blonde ale that combines German pilsner malt with American Citra and Centennial hops for a citrus taste and aroma. The addition of sea salt from the Atlantic gives the beer a slight salinity and a creamier head.

Fire Island Sunken Ferry Stout 

Stout · Brewed by Fire Island Beer Company

 

Sunken Ferry Stout is a distinctive blend of some unique stout styles such as oatmeal and chocolate. This beer drinks like a traditional stout- roasty, toasty, delicious, and malty with a lovely sweet creamy coffee finish and touch of chocolate heaven.

Founders Double Trouble 

Imperial/Double IPA · 9.4 ABV · Brewed by Founders Brewing Company

 

An imperial IPA that was brewed to turn your world upside down. Hops will get you coming and going. Pungent aromatics up front pair with a malt-balanced backbone and a smooth bitter finish.

Goose Island Matilda 

Belgian Ale · 7.0 ABV · Brewed by Goose Island Beer Company

 

Inspired by great Trappist ales, this complex Belgian Style Pale Ale is fermented with the wild yeast Brettanomyces. Matilda pours a golden sunrise color with dried fruit and clove aromas, a spicy yeast flavor, and a satisfying dry finish.
