Our Beers

Lavery Brewery is an American craft brewery that feels comfortable bouncing across brewing traditions and styles. We like traditional beers as much as we like extreme beers and try to walk a fine line between the two at Lavery Brewing Co. The beers listed below are just some exmples of what we like to make. We currently have 9 rotatiing beers on tap. If you must classify us, how about a Pennsylvania-style craft brewery? Do ya feel better now that we fit into a little box? Do ya?

Rauch Lager Bier Smoked Lager

This clean lager is light in color with a medium body. Our lager is brewed with pure smoke (rauch) malts. The smoke character is very strong, and can seem almost bacon-like, with woody notes cutting through the smoke. Malts also give this beer a somewhat sweet, toasty, yet dry finish.

  • Hops - German Hops
  • Lager Yeast
  • ABV - 5.8%

La Bealtaine American Wheat

Named in homage to the spring planting festivals of Ireland and Scotland. Bealtaine is an amazing complex beer rising out of simple ingredients. Brewed with wheat, pilsner and a touch of crystal malts to give this beer a light body and appearance. Hopped with Intense American hops, most of all the new American hop blend Zythos which gives the wheat base Citrus and Pine flavors. It's like a pale ale with wheat versus a traditional wheat ale.

Imperial French Ale

France has a small brewing culture but their independence and culture is worthy of great respect. This ale is based around our house French saison blend. IFA features a blend of wheat, rye, pale and specialty malts to give this big girl a medium body so as to not become too cloyingly sweet.  Hopped and dry hopped with massive amounts of American hops to double IPA levels. So...is it a Tripel IPA? Hoppy saison, a new style? Who knows and more importantly, who cares. Beers like this don't deserve to be put into tiny boxes. Expect a light colored and light to medium bodied beer with tons of hops and Belgian/French yeast spiceiness in the aroma. Always hazy due to amount of hops and wheat in the recipe. Warming alcohol finish. Surprisingly easy to drink , thanks to our yeast blend.

Liopard Oir
Farmhouse Ale (SAISON)
2013 GABF Gold Medal Winner!

A beer for the ladies, crazies and connoisseurs. A floral, hoppy and fruity Belgian/French-style saison. Saisons are completely undescribable so we won't even try. Our interpretation has five types of grain, nobel hops and three different strains of yeast! The yeast is the star of this show - fruity, spicy, fragrant, alluring and simply delicious. This beer ends dry and crisp. We bottle condition with Brettanomyces Clausenii, a wild yeast that adds fruity, tart and mildly funky aromas and flavors to ale. This beer is great young but will change considerably with time.
Named Liopard oir, Irish for 'gold leopard', which appears on the Lavery Family crest.
