Our Regular Beer Styles

The Ship Inn has been brewing since January of 1995. Each week we brew fine ales based on styles from the British Isles and beyond in our brick-and-wood clad Peter Austin brewing system. All of our ales made with Ringwood yeast, are unfiltered, and served off of their sediment so as to ensure conditioning of flavor. Cask-style ales such as our flagship Best Bitter are served  at cellar temperature from the beer engine with natural carbonation.  Our other ales are served slightly cooler with additional carbonation or nitrogen mix for the American palate.


Golden Wheat: This house ale is made with a blend of malted barley and wheat, lightly hopped to produce a crisp and smooth session ale. 4.0% ABV

Extra Special Bitter: This medium bodied pale ale, is a copper-colored special bitter with spicy Centennial and Citra hops. 5.2% ABV

Muddy Waters:    A complex brown ale blending caramel and roasted malts. While dark in color, this ale is light bodied, crisp, and refreshing.  5.4% ABV

Best Bitter (Cask Conditioned): A traditional British style cask conditioned pale ale, naturally carbonated and served on our hand pump. This medium bodied house specialty has a fruity hop finish. 5.0% ABV

Hop Harvest Farmhouse (Cask Conditioned): This farmhouse style ale was created to incorporate cascade hops that were grown locally by one of our regular guests. 4.7% ABV

Pale Ale: An American style pale ale, moderately bitter, with a light body and dry finish. 5.7% abv

Coming Soon:

Killer Bee! A traditional English-style ESB with the addition of Tassot Apiary honey to create a crisp ale. This beer has floral and honey aromas with a dry body. A delicious brew.
