The Otter Creek Copper Ale is their flagship brew, produced year 'round. It is a medium bodied, amber ale inspired by the Altbiers of Northern Germany. Three different types of hops are used, including Chinook, US Hallertau, and US Tettneng, along with six different malts, including 2-row pale, Munich, Caramel 20, Caramel 40, Carapils, and Roasted Barley to produce a well-balanced blend of malty notes and a mild bitterness. There is a semi-floral hop aroma followed by sweet caramel and malt aromas. This is a beautiful interpretation of a German Altbier!
The Otter Creek Brewing Company is located in the small town of Middlebury, Vermont. - Population 8,517. This 40 barrel brewhouse shipped their first keg of beer back in 1991. In only four years, they outgrew their original site and moved into their new state-of-the-art brewery just down the street.

They brew seven different beers, three are year 'round, the others are seasonal or specialty brews. They are the Copper Ale, Pale Ale, Stovepipe Porter, Mud Bock Spring Ale, Summer Wheat Ale, Oktoberfest, Hickory Switch Smoked Amber Ale, and A Winter's Ale. This month, we are proud to feature the Copper Ale and the Stovepipe Porter.

One of the unique qualities of the beers that the Otter Creek Brewery produces is the water it uses. They use clear Vermont water along with the best domestic malt and hops available, to ensure freshness and consistent quality.
