Conkey’s Tavern Ale
Many a historic moment has been brewed over a beer in a bar. Conkey’s Tavern established in 1786 in Pelham, Massachusetts was just such a venue of radical thought. In the years of 1786-1787 a man by the name of Daniel Shay, an American revolutionary, met with his followers over a pint at Conkey’s and plotted his famous rebellion against the Massachusetts Government.
This melding of ale and anarchy is the inspiration behind the creation of our Conkey’s Tavern Ale. Orange, copper color and a creamy head stealthily disguise a crisp, dry mouthfeel. The tactical combination of Cascade, Tomahawk and Amarillo hops counterposition bright citrus, pine and spice aroma as well as flavor. Nutty, bready malt holds up the flanks to bring this crisp, dry, medium-light bodied ale to victory. Truly a beer that celebrates the sprit of Conkey’s, as well as the spirit of our hometown of Battle Creek.
