Our Beers

Charter Oak Brewing will offer four year round flagship beers which are Ales and all brewed to style with a focus on well-balanced, full flavor, and copious amounts of hops, yet highly drinkable!. COBC will also market four seasonal beers which will enjoy a more complex, robust body, and higher alcohol content. All our styles will be hand crafted beers with all natural ingredients and will be the freshest, most delicious beers available. The brewery will also market limited releases called the Charter Series and the Oak Series (barrel aged) as well as cask conditioned beer. Feel free to scroll to the bottom of this section and read about the famous Connecticut Charter Oak legend and our beers. Cheers!

Flagship Beers

Charter Oak's 1687 Brown Ale (this was the year the legend of the Charter Oak took place, and Wadsworth hid the document in the majestic Oak Tree - later to become know as The Charter Oak) is an American style which is slightly more robust than the traditional English Brown Ale.

COMING SOON.  This style may have been developed in Cologne, Germany, but we think we have perfected it here at the Charter Oak Brewery.  Charter Oak's Kolsch-style beer is a pale, light bodied golden ale  (like Champaign)  which is the perfect choice for a warm summer afternoon or evening.  The...

COMING SOON. Our beer offerings would not be complete without including a wonderful Belgian styled beer; we chose Charter Oak's Abbey Dubbel.  This beer will be a medium bodied, dark brown ale that might even make the Trappist monks ask for the recipe!  Our Dubbel will have a strong malty...
