A wild & free brown ale with some serious attitude.
A Brown Ale beer made for people with a sweet tooth. Truly a symphony of flavors in your mouth, this brew is sweet like candy with an alcohol kick, with caramel notes carrying you to a mild burnt bitter finish from the signature roasted barley. For almost a century, Clarion County has been known as the home of the Anti-Horse Thief Association. Although there is no record of a horse’s being stolen for several decades, the Association holds an annual dinner each year, alternating between Leatherwood and Oak Grove Presbyterian churches. It still costs $1.00 to become a life member, and such memberships are held by Dwight D. Eisenhower and Arthur Godfrey.
An off the beaten path APA with a unique blend of ingredients for a one of a kind taste.
An American Pale Ale that’s small on hop bitterness and big on Bold Citrus Flavor thanks to large amounts of American hops used at the end of the brewing process. Clarion County’s abundant mineral riches were apparent very early, and between 1845 and 1854 one-half of the iron produced in Pennsylvania was manufactured in Clarion County, deservedly winning the nickname “Iron County.”
This Classic Cream Ale is takes you back to a simpler time.
An American Cream Ale brewed with American mats and hops. A well balanced brew complimented by a creamy mouth feel from a generous helping of flaked barley and oats. Named after the village of Clarion which was founded in 1839 and officially incorporated into a borough in 1841. Clarion serves as the County Seat of Clarion County.
An Imperial Stout as strong as its’ namesake river.
An Imperial Russian Stout so thick you can cut it with a knife. It sticks to the glass as well as your stomach. It’s high alcohol content will keep you warm and cozy throughout the cold winter months in Clarion County. This flagship beer is brewed each season a little differently. Named after the sound of ripples on the water made mellow by the wall of timber on both sides of the river, said to sound like “a distant clarion”.
This genius combination of a Russian Imperial Stout and a Czech Pilsner will have your taste buds patting you on the back.
An immigrant coal miner, Vincent Voychek, stabbed his landlord, Andrew Stupka, to death. He was later hung, the only person ever to be executed in Clarion County. The Executioner, Zoe Rimes, was one of the few women in history to serve as a hang woman. In addition, invitations were distributed to affluent individuals to witness his hanging.
