6.3% ABV — In a world with breweries spreading their brewing time and abilities across a wide range of styles, The Gallery took a refreshing view on the classic Porter. Easily the best beer on the tap list, the Porter is led by a strong roasted barley presence. The brewery is hamstrung by having only two fermentors, necessitating the ability to produce a solid beer every time in and out, or risk serving no beers.
4.9% ABV — The Gallery’s brown ale is one of its most straightforward beers — but that doesn’t mean it’s not tasty. The Baroque Brown features a slight caramel, toffee and raisin flavor, with a strong bread finish that lingers. While this might not be a very creative brew, it’s exactly what you’d expect — a beer that’s a great easy drinking, entry-level brown ale.
7.9% ABV — The most surprising beer on Gallery’s menu, this is simply defined as “Christmas in a glass.” Cinnamon, vanilla, allspice and nutmeg flavors round out this brew, which is finished with a minor amount of smokiness. To say this is a “shock” for a beer would be an understatement. While easy drinking, Shock Spice is heavy on the aroma and flavor, making for a unique, winter-themed brew that you would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.
