TOASTED LAGER - 5.3% abv
This beer won the gold medal at The 2006 World Beer Cup, the silver medal at The 2006 Great American Beer Festival and the silver medal at the 2004 World Beer Cup. Copper in color this brew is made from six different malts and utilizes a special lager yeast to produce that long lasting, smooth finish. Toasted Lager displays a balanced flavor of malt and hop which makes for easy drinking.
PALE ALE - 5.0% abv
Blue Point Brewing's Pale Ale has a light golden color but explodes with a rich full-flavor. This refreshing ale is top-fermented and hopped at four different stages of the brewing process. English pale malt lends complexity to this brew. Small amounts of Wheat and Carapils round out the malt bill. Brewed to satisfy the hop lover, this pale ale has an immediate floral-citrus flavor that pervades the overall character of this hoppy, quenching microbrew.
WINTER ALE - 7.0% abv
Brewed to chase away the chill of cool Winter nights, it’s created with pale, Vienna, crystal and chocolate malts. This uncommon amber is brewed with a tasty balance of malt and hops, only during the cold months of the year. One of our most popular seasonal specialties, just remember this special ale is gone with Winter’s winds.
RASTAFARYE - 7.5% abv
Blue Point Brewing Company humbly honors the Rastafari and dedicates this beer to them. Our RastafaRye Ale marries a hearty rye malt with a blend of freshly harvested west coast hops resulting in a delicious deep copper ale, with just the right amount of rye flavor to offset the spicy and floral characteristics of the hops, RastafaRye will stay on your palate and your mind evermore.
NO APOLOGIES (LIMITED) - 10.0% abv
Our Imperial or Double IPA is a brew not to be taken lightly. Crafted only in small batches from the finest European malts and American hops, the huge earthy dry hop aroma of Blue Point Brewing’s No Apologies is followed by a pleasant caramel sweetness. Four hop varieties round out this perfectly balanced big ale that’s sure to warm your soul and for that, we offer absolutely NO APOLOGIES!!!

This IPA won the Bronze Medal at The 2005 Great American Beer Festival. It was also named the best IPA at The 2005 United States Beer Tasting Championship. This classic American style IPA features a rare hop exclusively grown on a farm in Oregon. One taste of the Hoptical Illusion and you'll know why Blue Point bought the entire crop. A generous amount of the select hop balances out malty backbone of this delicious golden beer.

The Oatmeal Stout is a dark beer drinker's dream come true. The Oatmeal Stout is made from Pale, Crystal, Chocolate and Roasted Malts.
