Otsego brewery unveiling new line from an aged base

Brewery in converted dairy barn
Butternuts Beer & Ale of Otsego County is rolling out a new line of specialty draft beers for a New Year "relaunch."

David Cancio, who is doing the marketing work for the company, says "the base beer for the line is aged over nine months on leaf hops and then a young ale is blended in before a second dry hop process is applied, creating an exceptionally flavorful aromatics brand."

The line consists of Gravity Wagon Double IPA (8.5%), Bessie’s Cream Ale (5%) made with corn, to be followed by a new IP and a German lager.

Butternuts also is producing new artwork for its canned beer line, including its Pork Slap Pale Ale and Moo Thunder Stout.

The brewery was established in 2005 on a 120-acre farm in the Butternut Valley. Brewing is conducted in a renovated dairy barn, usin g water from an on-site spring plus a variety of natural ingredients in creating American-style farmhouse ales with German, English and Belgian influences.

Butternuts is located at 4021 State Highway 51 in Garratscville, north of Oneonta. Phone: 607-263-5070.
