Rare Form Brewing Taproom

BABY BEATS 4.1%

A younger sibling to Sexy Beats that sets itself apart with a sessionable ABV. A supportive malt flavor keeps this beer robust and full-flavored, with plenty of hops on the nose and in the finish to stand out. Notes of melon and peach.

CONFETTI MEXICAN LAGER 5.7%

Mexican-style lager brewed with NY corn and Zeus hops. Notes of corn tortilla with a crisp lager finish.

ROYAL COCONUT CREAM ALE 6%

Upstate New York-style cream ale with a twist. You’ll feel like royalty sipping this light-bodied ale aged on locally toasted coconut. The coconut flavor is a subtle sidekick to enchant the palate but still allows the traditional style to shine through

DAISY BELL NE STYLE PALE ALE 6.4%

A soft and delicately bitter pale ale with a complex hop profile and a fruity zest finish.

SEXY BEATS IPA 5.8%

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

PEARS OF IMMORTALITY SOUR ALE WITH PEARS AND THYME 4%

A sour ale made with pears and thyme. This beer has a delicate tartness complemented by a subtle herbal balance of thyme.

MEMBER'S 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.

ALTGEIST GERMAN-STYLE ALTBIER 5%

A traditional Dusseldorf altbier with a complex malt profile and a delicate lingering bitterness with a touch of floral esters. A classic style that isn’t brewed enough in the states. Great beer for BBQ and hanging all day with friends.

KARASS ROBUST PORTER 6.6%

Inspired by Kurt Vonnegut, this robust porter is a part of our “Karass.” Enjoy this dark and roasty beer when you are with others to whom you are cosmically linked in some significant manner. Hints of bitter dark chocolate, roasted brown sugar, almond, toffee.

FUDGE FANTASY STOUT 5.7%

The Cookie Factory’s Fudge Fantasy is the cookie of choice for many in the city of Troy. With the chill of winter knocking at our door, we decided to concoct up something with holiday cheer: a stout with the addition of cookies and fudge from this generations-old bakery. Much like the confection that inspired it, Fudge Fantasy Stout is a sweet beer with notes of chocolate, and dark malt.

MO MAPLE, MO PROBLEMS 7.5%

A collaboration with Tipsey Moose Tavern. A brown ale brewed with generous amounts of local maple syrup.
