O'Hanlon Irish Stout, 4.2% ABV

Coffee and light chocolate aromas, and flavors of black coffee. Jet black. Roasty and firmly bitter. Served on Nitro to smooth out the flavors. Named after Lafayette College basketball coach Fran O'Hanlon.

Bankers Brown - Brown Ale, 4.5% ABV

This brown ale has a light chocolate and coffee flavor with a good caramel background. Very low hopping adds to the drinkability. When we met with our banker the first time to present our business plan, we told him if we got the loan, we’d name a beer after him. Here’s to you Jim!

Getters Island Pale Ale - American Pale Ale, 5.4% ABV

Light golden color with a mild toastiness balanced with a moderate bitterness. Citrus and floral aromas blend with the malt. Left unfiltered to preserve the hop flavor. Named after the little island North of the toll bridge between Easton and Phillipsburg named after Charles Getter, convicted of murdering his wife in 1833.  Getter was hanged on the island twice for his crime, the rope broke on the first try.  We named the pale ale after Getter’s Island, because old Charlie must have been pretty bitter for the thirty minutes it took for them to get another rope.

Six Finger Sam Saison, 6% ABV

Six Fingers Sam is a farmhouse ale brewed with European malted barley and wheat, Czech Saaz and German Hallertau hops, and fermented with our expressive house Belgian yeast strain. Then aged in freshly dumped chardonnay barrels with multiple strains of brettanomyces. Unfiltered and naturally conditioned. Six Fingers Sam Bruneo was a colorful fixture downtown during the bawdy Prohibition Era in Easton. Sam was a concierge of the carnal delights of notorious Pine Street who would meet visitors at Centre Square or the train station and would guide them to the amusements of their choice for tips.

Lord Pomfrets Sour, 6.5% ABV

Lactobacillus mixed with loads of Raspberries and Black Currants. Magenta colored with a pink head. Jammy red fruit flavors mix with a clean acidity. Light oak tannins cut through the tartness to add structure. Named after Thomas Penn's father-in-law, whose estate of Easton-Neston in Northamptonshire, England our fair city is named after. This flavorful beer is certainly suitable for both Lords and Ladies!

Mt. Vernon Lager, 5% ABV

Colonel Left Eye IPA, 6.8% ABV

Toasty malt with a firm bitterness. Hopped with Citra and Cascade hops for bright citrus and tangerine hop flavors. Left unfiltered to preserve the bright, aroma.

Previous Beers that may return . . .

Hexenmeister Hefeweizen, 5.1% ABV

A traditional German style wheat beer. Brewed with 60% malted barley. Flavors of Banana and clove mix with a dry wheaty finish. The Easton area had a significant population of Pennsylvania Germans commonly referred to as Pennsylvania Deutsch, or Dutch. This beer is named after the Pennsylvania Dutch folk magic practitioners who painted hex signs to bring about good things or ward off bad things. We think drinking this hefeweizen will ward off the bad spirits that may haunt you!

Northampton Street English IPA, 6.1% ABV

The original IPA. Maltier and more balanced than modern American versions. Hopped exclusively with East Kent Goldings for a firm bitterness and a earthy, slightly floral hop flavor and aroma. This beer bears the name of Easton's "Main Street". The bustling commercial and social thoroughfare in town during the post-war era, Northampton Street was home to theaters, department stores and restaurants. After a few decades of neglect, our "Main Street" is getting its swagger back!

Silk Mill Belgian Single, 6.2% ABV

Cracker malt flavor with a light sweetness. Moderate bitterness with a spicy noble hop flavors and aromas from Czech Saaz and Hallertau hops. Fermented with a traditional Belgian yeast. Traditionally brewed as the table beer for the monks in Trappist monasteries.  This beer salutes the silk mills that were the economic life’s blood of Easton during the late 1880’s and early 1920’s.  It’s also a salute to the renovation of the largest of the silk mills, the Simon Silk Mill, which sits prominently on the North shore of the Bushkill Creek off of 13th Street.

The Destroyer Pale Ale, 5% ABV

A super citrusy and piney pale ale. Loads of Citra and Centennial hops, and fermented with the Conan yeast strain.

A hazy brown color with tight tan head. Toasty malt mixed with caramel, plum, and raisin. Fermented with our expressive saison yeast. A rustic version of a trappist dubbel.

The Easton Assasinator Doppelbock, 8% ABV

Tons of munich malts give this heavyweight a huge chewy malt presence. Toasty malts and dark fruit flavors dominate like Larry Holmes' left jab. Lagered for over 10 weeks to add complexity. Brewers of modern doppelbocks often add "-ator" to their beer's name as a signpost of the style. In recognition of all that Larry Holmes has achieved in boxing and in recognition of what he has done for the Easton community, we've named our doppelbock "The Easton Assassinator", as Larry's nickname in boxing was the Easton Assassin.

Seven Spirits Pumpkin Ale, 5.3% ABV

Brewed with European malts, 80# of in house roasted scholl orchard longneck pumpkins, and 1 gallon of sorghum syrup. Brewed with Christopher Black (kickstarter).

Bugler's Lament Rye IPA, 6.1% ABV

An IPA brewed with 15% rye malt, and Centennial and Cascade hops. Spicy and earthy malt flavors mix with citrus and danky hops. Brewed with Ken Valley, one of our kickstarter supporters. The Soldiers and Sailor's monument was built in 1901 as a memorial to Eastonians who fought in the Civil War. The bugler who stands atop the monument fscing Westward to blow taps at sundown for his fallen comrades was modeled after Francis Reed, a drummer in Company H, 96th Pennsylvania Regiment.

Stirner's Iron Stout, 6.8% ABV

Loads of chocolate malt and roasted barley create flavors of bitter chocolate brownie mixed with black coffee. Hopped with zythos hops for a firm bitterness. Named after local metal sculptor and mentor to the Easton arts community, Karl Stirner, the beer had to have strong flavors to represent the strength of the man.

Durham Boat Black Pils, 5.6% ABV

Toasty dark malts with a firm bitterness. Lots of Czech Saaz for a firm bitterness and an earthy flavor. Lagered for 10 weeks for a clean finish. Named for the boat developed 15 minutes South of Easton in Durham, PA. The boats were used to carry heavy loads in shallow water, which was necessary to transport coal from the coal mines North of the Lehigh Valley to Philadelphia. The most famous Durham boats, however, ferried Washington's troops across the Delaware!

Moetta's Rustic Tripel, 8.5% ABV

Loads of Pilsner malt, kettle hopped with Styrian Goldings and dry hopped with German tettnang hops. Bone dry and firmly bitter with aromas of overripe peach and earthy hops. Named after one of Easton's most colorful figures of the early 20th century, Moetta Newhart unabashedly ran several "bawdy houses" on Pine Street and her father Albert, a Pennsylvania Dutch faith healer once tightrope-walked between the Lafayette Hotel and the Bixler Building at the corner of Fourth and Northampton Streets.  

Old Tilton's Barleywine, 10.7% ABV

Rich toffee flavors and thick malt mix with a firm bitterness and warming alcohol. Has a deep bronze color and a small tan head. Perfect for the cold winter Eason nights. Named after Henry C. Tilton, former resident of our building when it was the Mount Vernon Hotel, Tilton was Easton's Police Chief and a decorated Civil War veteran.

Traill Green Farmhouse Ale, 6.5% ABV

Botanists use a process called grafting to combine two different plants to bring out the best of both plants. Traill Greene was probably Easton's most famous physician and also a learned botanist. We could think of no better Eastonian to name this delicious hybrid of a pale ale and saison than Dr. Green. Brewed with Shane Mcgee (kickstarter supporter and local Lehigh Valley Homebrewers member). Pilsner, unmalted wheat and 28% rye malt, Sorachi ace and falconers flight hops, and fermented with a special belgian yeast strain. Tropical, lemony, and mango flavors.

Sixth Street Sour, 6.24% ABV

A young brune, quickly soured with lactobacillus, and fermented on french oak. We then added sour cherries and rasperries to this already tart beer. Light raisin mixed with an assertive sourness, and loads of fruit flavor, balanced out with strong oak tannins. In 1995, Weyerbacher Brewing began brewing beer on Sixth Street in Easton. Twenty years later, Two Rivers Brewing Company began brewing two doors down from the original Weyerbacher Brewery. It is in honor of the street where it all started for both breweries that we name our first collaboration between Two Rivers Brewing's Josh Bushey and Weyerbacher's Chris Wilson.
