They said we had to be evil. They said to get with the times. They said you can't start a brewery that way. They said the people only care for bombast. They said no one will buy American beer in the 750mls. They said no one cares about real ale. They keep telling us and we say only En Gard, Connards! Biere de Garde is a style of French Farmhouse ale intended to be stored. The style hinges on maintaining an elusive maltiness while remaining dry and satisfying. Our beer de garde is well suited to an extended stay in your cellar but is perfectly drinkable now as well.
Mystic Table Beer....$6.99 / 750ml
Artisanal Lawn-Mowing Beer
Mystic Table Beer traces its roots back to a time when water was never an option at the dining table. Beer from 1.2-4.5% ABV was served at the table as well as in the fields in the form of saison. Its flavor and texture are derived from our house yeast strain, ‘Renaud’ as well as traditional bottle-conditioning. The Name. Like it’s big brother Mystic Saison, Table Beer was named to reflect the unpretentious field beers that inspired it.

Mystic Descendant Suffolk Dark Ale...$10.99 / 750ml
Descendant begins as a simple dark ale stretched with molasses. It's then fermented with our rustic house culture of yeast in our square fermenters, and after traditional refermentation in the bottle, we found a character so different from anything we've had before that we call it a Suffolk Dark Ale to reflect the sue of traditional local ingredients. Descendant is an ode to the ancestors; a re-imagined drink of dimly remembered times; an old tavern alle for the present day.
