Martha’s Vineyard Ale

Extra Special Bitter (ESB) 5.3% ABV

Bad Martha’s flagship ale teases with a devilishly dark honey hue, a smooth caramel flavor, and a seductive floral aroma. Brewed with premium English malt, the finest English and American hops, and the leaves of the grape that gave the island its name. This beer lures you in with approachable flavor and light to medium body you’ll want to get your hands on.

Vineyard Summer Ale

Golden Ale/Blonde Ale 5.0% ABV

Wild Vineyard grape leaves, premium Pilsner malt and Saaz hops, give our Vineyard Summer a bright golden glow, a clean pilsner malt flavor and subtle Bartlett pear aromatics. It’s refreshing, light body makes it the perfect ale for a lazy day on the sane. And maybe night too!

508 IPA

India Pale Ale (IPA) 7.0%ABV

Get bad with our medium bodied hop-forward American style India Pale Ale made with Citra and Mosaic hops and brewed with grape leaves from Martha’s Vineyard for a refreshing fruit and caramel flavor.

Twin Sirens

Double IPA 9%ABV

A wickedly delicious Double IPA. Made with a blend of American and Australian hops that create a big citrus aroma, with notes of Mandarin oranges, fresh pine, and a dry bitter finish that will tantalize your taste buds.

Wicked Coffee Porter

English Porter 5.25%ABV

Our rich coffee porter is made using fresh roasted coffee beans from Martha’s Vineyard. We’ve used dark Munich and chocolate malts to give our Porter a delicious and complex flavor, with aromatics of fresh roasted coffee and dark chocolate. With a creamy mouthfeel and smooth finish, this brew will keep you coming back for another sip and a sultry caffeine kick.

Shark Bite

Cucumber and Jalapeno Lager 5.6% ABV

A German style lager with an American kick. Light in body and color, and aged on fresh island grown cucumbers and jalapenos. This light crisp lager starts off with a little heat and then quickly cools off with refreshing cucumber. The perfect beer to send your taste buds on a trip and still be refreshed in the end.

Gosnold’s Garden Gruit

Gruit 4.8% ABV

A Gruit is an unhopped beer style produced before the 16 th century. Instead of hops, traditional gruits were made using local herbs and spices. Our take on the gruit style is made using lemongrass, chamomile, star anise, and rosemary.

MVP – Martha’s Vanilla Porter

English Porter 5% ABV

Dark and mysterious as the islands past, this brew uses rich dark chocolate and roasted barley to balance out sweet vanilla bean. Crafted to replenish the body and mind after a long day of work or fun, sit back relax and let your taste buds take over the work.

Farmhouse Peppercorn Saison

Saison 5.5% ABV

Traditional farmhouse Saisons were brewed using local ingredients grown around the brewery. Our Saison uses hops grown at our brewery on Martha’s Vineyard. Fermented using Trappist ale yeast, this spring time brew has strong yeast esters, a hint of earthy hop character, and finishes off with a peppery aftertaste from crushed rainbow peppercorns.

Big Bad Belgian Quad

Belgian Quad 11% ABV

This bad boy comes in at 11% ABV but very deceitful when it comes to taste. Brewed using Belgian candied syrup, the malt forward body with hints of plums starts off with a rush of flavor and finishes off with a sweet nectar flavor. Sip with caution!

Honey Helles

Helles Lager 4.2% ABV

A traditional German style lager fermented on 35 lbs. of local MV honey from several local farms. This light crisp lager has the perfect amount of sweet honey flavor to satisfy your sweet tooth, yet stay cool and refreshing on a hot summer day.

Menemsha Maibock

Maibock Lager 6% ABV

Traditionally a German lager brewed in March to be consumed in May, this beer is amber in color, light in body, and has a bit of a hop presence. Brewed using all German Munich malts and German hops, this beer is great to branch from those cold New England spring days to the warm summer nights.

Patio IPA

India Pale Ale (IPA) 6.5% ABV

A beer that was grown right here on our patio! A traditional American IPA brewed using only hops grown last year on our patio at the Farmhouse brewery on MV. The nose picks up great earthy and piney aromatics with hints of grapefruit and citrus. Hang out on our patio and appreciate garden to glass.

Driftwood Belgian Wit

Witbier 4.8% ABV

A Belgian style “white” beer brewed with large amounts of wheat and oats. Aged on coriander and sweet orange peel, this unfiltered brew has a crisp flavor with a hint of spice. Easy drinking, and incredibly flavorful, you will want to sit out under the hot sun while having a few of these bad boys.

No Man’s Land Amber Ale

Amber Ale 6.3% ABV

Named after the uninhabited island off of the coast of Martha’s Vineyard, this beer is tied into the roots of the island. Originally a large importer of molasses from the Caribbean, the island was a stop over for boats destined for Boston Harbor. This beer is brewed using molasses for a sweet yet bitter flavor.

Strawberry Blonde

Golden/Blonde Ale 5% ABV

Very light, very approachable, and filled full of flavor, this take on a Blonde ale is packed full of juicy strawberry flavor. With a light malt backbone and a hint of Belgian candied syrup this beer is a dessert in a glass.

Lighthouse Keeper Lager

Light Lager 4.5% ABV

Named for the men and woman who spent their lives protecting the sailors that were the life line of this island. The perfect beer for a hot sunny day on Martha’s Vineyard. Low in alcohol, calories, and carbohydrates, this beer is light in body, crisp, and refreshing. Have one to help beat the heat, or have a few and relax in the shade.

Aquinnah Weisse

Berliner Weisse 3.5% ABV

A German unfiltered, sour, wheat beer. Brewed using mainly wheat, this beer is very light in body and alcohol content. Soured in the kettle using yogurt from Mermaid Farms and then aged on local sour cherries, this beer is very fruity and tart. Once it hits your lips you will be asking for more.

Hopback Whale IPA

India Pale Ale (IPA) 5.7% ABV

A “hopback” is a vessel used in brewing to add more hops to a batch of beer than the fermenters can hold. This batch uses 5 pound of hops per barrel of beer. With all the added hop character and aroma, there is not an increase in bitterness. Still very easy drinking this IPA has notes of tangerine, passion fruit, and other tropical fruits.

Blueberry Abbey Road

Abbey Ale 5.5% ABV

Brewed in the style of original Trappist monastery ales, this beer has a medium body, pronounced fruity and cereal flavor, and a distinct blueberry aroma and flavor. Aged on 35 pounds of fresh island grown blueberries, this brew has a distinct New England twist on a traditional style of beer.

Great Harbor Gose

Gose 4% ABV

A slightly tart, low alcohol beer, brewed with 50% malted wheat, coriander, and salt. This beer style has a flavor profile of lemony tartness, herbal character, and strong saltiness. This beer style is perfect for an introduction into the “sour” beer world.

Blasphemous Black IPA

India Pale Ale (IPA) 7.5% ABV

A beer dark as night but still has a body and flavor as light as day. This IPA has all the regular profiles of a normal IPA but its color is pitch black. With aromas of citrus, apricot, and pineapple, this tropical IPA will keep you coming back every day, or night.

Roscoe’s Brown

Brown Ale 5.8% ABV

Traditionally an English style beer, this American version has classic malty and nutty notes with a slightly hoppy character. Dark amber/brown in color, with a mild body, and a sweet flavor profile. Named for the lovable dog next door, you may just see lying on the brewery floor.


Oktoberfest bier/Maren 5.7% ABV

The most iconic German beer style in the USA, this beer is brewed to honor the month long German festival. Brewed using only Munich and Vienna malts and all German hops, this easy drinking lager has a large flavor but very light body. Prost!

Island ALEpaca

Pale Ale 5% ABV

A great easy drinking beer style that often gets over looked. With a nice malty backbone, medium body, and just the right touch of earthy and piney hops. This well rounded beer is worthy of as much attention as any crazy hop IPA.

Pumpkin Pie Dubbel

Belgian Dubbel 7% ABV

A Dubbel is a traditional Trappist ale style of beer that is heavy in body and flavor. Ours is brewed using Belgian candied sugar, oven roasted island pumpkins, cinnamon, and a touch of vanilla bean. Only produced once the fall nights begin to get crisp, this beer is like a warm slice of pumpkin pie.

Cran Vienna Lager

Vienna Lager 5.8% ABV

A Vienna lager is traditionally a lighter, sweeter German lager. Brewed using only German malt and hops, this beer has a distinct New England twist. Using the native local cranberries tart flavor to balance out the sweet German lager, this beer is the perfect fall beer for Massachusetts.

Half Shell

Oyster Stout 8.5% ABV

Dark rich chocolate, sprinkled with a touch of sea salt. Now imagine that in a beer! This very flavorful stout is made with chocolate malt, roasted malt, 30 gallons of Not Your Sugar Mama’s delicious chocolate, and boiled with fresh oysters, harvested from the waters around Martha’s Vineyard.
