Winter Ale
Smuttynose Winter Ale is a full-bodied, amber beer brewed with a special Trappist ale yeast. Stylistically reminiscent of a Belgian Abbey Double, it features fruity aromas and flavor, balanced by soft Crystal hops. Warming, mellow & pleasantly complex, Smuttynose Winter Ale is your perfect cold weather companion.

Robust Porter
This hearty, mahogany colored ale is brewed to evoke the dark, full-bodied ales that were a favorite of dockworkers and warehousemen (hence the name “Porter”) in 19th century London. It is a good bet that when Dickens’ Mr. Pickwick sat down for a pint, we would have been drinking an ale much like our Robust Porter.This is a smooth and very drinkable beer, characterized by its well-balanced malt and hops, plus subtle notes of coffee and chocolate.
 “Full-bodied and malty with undertones of coffee and chocolate and a bright, hoppy finish, in style it’s like Cary Grant's accent: the best of British and American.” - The Boston Globe, November, 2005

French craft beer hits Mudville9 in TriBeCa

Jenlain Ambree - Amber Biere de Garde - 7.5%ABV -(this beer will be available at Mudville9 for the next 3 - 6 days)

With a maltier and more rugged taste than classic beers, Jenlain is a very lively, complex brew. It's generous taste lingers pleasantly in the mouth while its malty, autumnal bouquet, floral note and hints of caramel, stewed prunes and lightly toasted malt make it an ideal ingredient in many dishes. It was awarded the "Diploma of Merit and National Prestige" in 1993 by the Comitè de France and the Comitè du Bon Goût Français, and recently won a Bronze Metal at the 2004 Agricultural Show.

The flavors of this beer go perfect with the tastes of the Mudville 9's Maryland Lump Crab Cakes. The slightly breaded pieces of crab are a perfect match with the caramel and malty flavors of the beer.

The new Sixpoint Pilsner @ Mudville 9 in TriBeCa NYC

The Sixpoint Sehr Crisp is a celebration of all things that make Pilsner beer great:  crisp, clean flavors - soft, subtle malt honey and lots of peppery hops. This beer was brewed with a very special floor-malted variety of Moravian malt, found exclusively in the Czech Republic.  Sixpoint then combined this malt with two other proprietary varieties in a simple and unique grain bill, and turn its attention to the hops - in which they sourced varieties from both the United States and Germany.

An extended cold-lagering phase allows this beer to finish clean, and beckons you for another sip.  The best explanation of have for this beer is CRISP!!!! The ABV:  5.3% & IBU:   41

This new Sixpoint Pilsner is a perfect pairing with the Mudville9 ( Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings. The CRISP flavor of the beer with just the right amount of hops to wash down the spice of your tongue while remaining eminently slammable.
