Rare Form Brewing Taproom

SABBATICAL SESSION ALE 3.9%

This light, crisp and citrusy ale is brewed with rye and a blend of spices. It’s also generously hopped to offer you a light but full bodied beer sure to bring you a change of pace. This easy-drinking session ale has hints of rye, coriander, tangerine, orange, fresh pepper, and lime.

CONFETTI MEXICAN-STYLE LAGER 5%

This Mexican-style lager is brewed with New York grown Oaxacan green dent corn from Forts Ferry Farm and Zeus hops for a zesty kick. Notes of corn tortilla with a crisp lager finish make this a refreshing cerveza, with lime or without.

BREAK POINT LAGER 5.5%

Rare Form’s take on the classic Vienna Lager style really pops. Brewed with New York-grown Zeus and dry-hopped with Chinook hops for an earthy spice character that compliments the traditional toasted grain flavors of locally sourced Vienna and Munich malts.

RAW BEATS IPA 5.5%

The addition of raw rye to the grain bill of this India Pale Ale gives a full-bodied experience with only a touch of earthy spice. Aromas of dark berry play nice with flavor notes of stone fruit, peach, and American hops, all with the satisfying roundness of raw rye.

SEXY BEATS IPA 5.4%

Get your groove on with this soft hazy IPA derived from a complex blend of late addition hops to compliment the grain and oats leaving a delicately smooth and dry finish. Notes of grapefruit and stone fruit.

TROY DIVISION IPA 5%

In an ode to both our city and to one of our favorite bands, we brewed this immensely satisfying New England IPA with a medley of American hops along with a dose of wheat and oats. This unknown pleasure is sure to become a familiar favorite.

MOXIE DOUBLE IPA 8%

Distinctly smooth and decidedly different. This beer drinks like a fluffy screwdriver but finishes nice and dry leaving your palate ready for more. Hints of orange, tangerine and clementines. Also available on nitro.

PRACTICALLY MAGIC 4.7%

Inspired by the flavors of a traditional coastal Colombian beverage, this beer is brewed with fresh lime and toasted coconut. The result is a sour ale layered with the lush and bright notes of fruit and imbued with just a hint of sunshine magic.

MEMBERS ONLY BROWN ALE 6%

A slightly sweet and nutty brown ale, Members Only gives the classic English style an American plot twist. No jacket needed, though, as this classic style is brewed for everyone.

BAVARIA RUNS ON DUNKEL 5.4%

Dunkel or “dark” lager is one of the most popular beers brewed in Munich and enjoyed throughout Bavaria. Our interpretation keeps the smooth, rich malty goodness of a traditional German dunkel and adds the roasty notes of an American cup of Joe.

KARASS PORTER 6%

This American porter is rich and dark with hints of pale chocolate and nutty undertones. This transitions seamlessly to a velvety smooth mouthfeel that lingers comfortably. Notes of bakers chocolate, prune and velvet.

RAISIN IN THE DARK 5.6%

Collaboration with The City Beer Hall! This variant on our traditional Schwarzbier is brewed with Urfa biber chilis and smoked golden raisins, lending a subtle sweetness and the slightest touch of heat. A clean, crisp lager finish rounds out this accessible, well-balanced beer.

BARREL AGED KARASS PORTER 6.6%

This American porter is rich, dark, and complex. Look for hints of baker’s chocolate with roasty and nutty undertones. This beer also spent several months aging in a blend of Upstate Distilling Company’s bourbon and rye barrels, lending strong notes of vanilla, spice and oak.
