Now on Tap - Lunch Pale Ale

Introducing our new "Lunch" Pale Ale, a delightfully hoppy, yet highly quaffable pale ale. Pale 2-row, Vienna, Biscuit & Crystal malts create the sturdy backbone for this well-balanced ale which is hopped using only English East Kent Goldings & Styrian Goldings. If you're a fan of our Newcomb's IPA, but looking for something just a little a bit lighter, this is the beer for you.

OG 10.5 Plato
45 IBUs
4.5% ABV

Now on Tap - BBB

In celebration of 13 years of McCoy's Public House we're proud to present a new batch of our popular Anniversary Ale known as Triple B. We hopped this badboy with a blend of Pacific Northwest (Chinook & Horizon), English Fuggle & German Hallertauer hops for a dominant hop profile, while creating a balance of the citrusy American hop qualities and the spicier, more floral notes of European varities. It's then dry-hopped for an even stronger hop aroma. Clean malty sweetness is found in the background, while some fruitiness, either from esters or hops, is also prevalent. This big, bold & beautiful beer defies classification sitting somewhere between an Old Ale, ESB & Barleywine.

Brewer's specs:

78% Pale 2-row
9% Crystal
9% CaraPils
4% Melanoidin

Whole leaf Chinook added to mash
Fuggle added to first wort
Horizon & Hallertaur for 90 minutes
Fuggle & Hallertaur for 60 minutes
Hallertaur for 10 minutes
Fuggle & Hallertaur at whirlpool
Dry-hopped with Fuggle

OG. 23 Plato
90+ IBUs
11% ABV

Now on Tap - Farmhouse Ale

Introducing our first ever Farmhouse Ale. Traditionally brewed in the winter to be enjoyed in the summer months, this is a cloudy Belgian-style ale with a bold earthy yeast flavor, mild hop profile and just a touch of sweetness. It is dangerously easy to drink considering it weighs in at 7.1% ABV. See you on the patio!

Pics - Saison Dinner

Yet another great night of good friends, incredible food & remarkable beer. Last night's Brewmaster's Dinner was a showcase of four different Saisons, also known as Farmhouse Ales (read the full story here), matched up with four summer-inspired small plates. These dinners continually impress and are something to look forward each month; last night was certainly no exception. Once again, many thanks to those of you who made it out, but for those that didn't here's what you missed:

Scallop ceviche with wonton crisps served with McCoy's first ever Farmhouse Ale. Brewer's specs & photo coming soon!

Green tea smoked duck breast with radish & broccoli sprouts paired with Brasserie Dupont Foret. 7.5% ABV.

De Proefbrouwerij's Saison Imperiale - a unique interpretation of the style being much darker, sweeter & spicier than others on the menu. 8.5% ABV.

Roasted rabbit sausage with butternut squash gratin & Saison Imperiale. Amazing.

Fresh summer berries & orange wedges with sabayon served with Boulevard's 2009 Saison-Brett - currently the second highest rated Saison in the world on BeerAdvocate & rated 99/100 on RateBeer. 8.5% ABV.

Cheers - see you in July!
