2015 Flagship Beers

Slumbrew Trekker Trippel Belgian Golden Ale

A smooth and alluring Belgian golden ale with complex fruity pineapple flavors set against a spicy finish. Dried jasmine flowers added in the boil work with a higher alcohol level to augment Belgian pilsen, caramel and honey malts. Hop character include Chinook and Moteuka hops grown in New Zealand.

Slumbrew Flagraiser IPA Double IPA

Flagraiser IPA is a big, hoppy tribute to the unfurling of the Grand Union flag atop Prospect Hill in Somerville, MA on January 1, 1776. This ale celebrates our passion for hop aroma and flavor balanced with just the right amount of malt. Huge aroma and resin-y flavors from the elusive Galaxy hops are the signature of this beer. Built on a solid base of pale malts, this double IPA makes generous use of hops from Columbus, Crystal and Galaxy with the Galaxy hops taking the lead during ten days of aggressive dry-hopping.

Slumbrew Porter Square Porter Robust Chocolate Porter

Rich black porter with a unique blend of chocolate, coffee, roasted and nutty flavors. Brewed with cocoa powder and conditioned with cacao nibs from Taza Chocolate. Bold flavors from the cacao nibs and black malts are balanced with a special blend of pale malts, oats and wheat to produce a lush and lingering mouthfeel.

Slumbrew Happy Sol Blood Orange Hefeweizen

A refreshingly tart and crisp hefeweizen brewed with local MA wildflower honey, orange peel and coriander, and fermented with the juice from over 1,000 blood oranges. It’s a cloudy, yet effervescent beer, with lingering banana and citrus notes balanced against a healthy wheat backbone and hoppy finish from Mt. Hood and Crystal hops.


Slumbrew My Better Half Imperial Cream Ale

LIMITED SEASONAL RELEASE! It's often said there is a better half responsible for making us whole, and so goes the inspiration for this ale. One half of the fermentation is cold lagered and the remaining half is finished as a warm ale fermentation. The result is a smooth and composed imperial cream ale well suited for contemplation.

Early Summer
Slumbrew Flower Envy Saison Eclectic Saison

Summertime is for love, laughter and play, not envy. Never mind those luscious, long climbing vines of spicy, herbal hop cones over there. Sure there is a time for IPA, but today we will be content with smooth and floral Saison. Be happy. Brewed with Belgian aromatic malts, wheat and noble hops. Serve in a goblet or snifter at 45F for optimal enjoyment.

Late Summer
Slumbrew Hop Of The World White IPA with Peaches

"You don't like my peaches, don't you shake my tree. Get out of my orchard, let my peaches be." Our white IPA is a hybrid ale brewed with wheat malts and fermented with fresh peach puree. The aromatic essence of peach flavors combines with a world of hoppy goodness from Galena, Amarillo and Citra hops.

Slumbrew Attic & Eaves Toasted Brown ALE

An autumn brown ale with distinctive toasty flavors from an assortment of roasted malts and grains. As a seasonal, fall beer, its nutty characteristics offer a great companion to colder climate cuisine. A bright hop finish from Cascade and Fuggles balance the toasted grain notes to create a new expression of autumn brown ales.


Slumbrew Yankee Swap 2014 Imperial Stout Ale Aged in Oak Rum Barrels

This 2014 imperial stout is the SECOND EDITION in our Yankee Swap series. It's aged in Turkey Shore Distilleries run barrels to create a unique flavor profile that continues to develop with time. A perfect accompaniment to holiday doldrums, in-laws or all bouts of holiday boredom. If you collect bottles, we suggest you cellar a second bottle or two of this ale to serve with next year's edition of our Yankee Swap.

Slumbrew Yankee Swap Rum Barrel-Aged Strong

You could gift this bottle as a reflection of your fine craft beer taste, drink it now to ease your holiday tension or cellar for the long winter ahead. For our first year of our Yankee Swap beer series, we selected rum barrels from our friends at Turkey Shore Distilleries and dark maple syrup from North Hadley Sugar Shack. This Strong Ale is a big beer with hints of maple and complex notes of oak and rum from the Old Ipswich rum barrels.

Slumbrew Snow Angel Imperial IPA

How many hops are enough for an IPA? We think it's not just quantity, but the blend of varieties as we strive for hoppy delusions in this extremely limited release IPA for the lover of all things humulus lupulus. This beer is light golden in color from pilsner and caramel malts, with a cloudy haze from the addition of wheat. It's an unfiltered compilation of Nugget, Columbus, Zythos, Simcoe and a new experimental hop from the Pacific-Northwest referenced only by HBC-342.

Slumbrew Lobstah Killah Imperial Red Ale

It wasn't always his temperament, but they were the ones ... the ones that went looking for him after all. Today is a new day. Lobstah Killah Imperial Red Ale is a special blend of Maris Otter and other malts balance a resiny mix of Columbus, Cascade and Simcoe hops. Our hoppy imperial red ale is the beer of choice for imperial decisions.

Slumbrew Island Day Pale Ale with Calypso, Ella and Pacific Jade hops

Today, we breathe in deeply. Fresh air and the aromatic essence of Calypso, Ella and Pacific Jade hops fill the air and lighten our hearts while this golden ale lightens our mood. Today is an Island Day. Keep cold, enjoy now for today is the day. Serve at 45º - 50º F

Late Fall
Slumbrew Naked Hopularity Black India Pale IPA

Hopheads go to great extremes in their lupulin quests. It's a worthy endeavor, but fraught with falling across the event horizon in a hoppy stupor. With swirling flavors from both dark malts and the crisp body from pilsner grains, our limited release black IPA will take you to the center of a hop explosion and back, without all the crushing gravity.

About Us

Inventive, inspired, craft beer for everyday enjoyment - that's what we make. We're on a mission to create unique, ingredient-driven uncommon craft beers.

Our beers are an expression of quality ingredients, intended for people who enjoy flavorful beer for pairing with great food. Slumbrew is the brand for Somerville Brewing beer. Our story began nearly 15 years ago as our founders Caitlin Jewell and Jeff Leiter traveled around the country (and the world) trying to understand a renaissance in brewing that is now described as craft beer. With over 10 years as an avid home brewer, and construction of a small 350 square foot test lab brewery in Somerville, MA for recipe creation, Caitlin and Jeff set out in 2011 to make their beers available in Massachusetts. Presently, we're producing our beers out of Mercury Brewing Company in Ipswich, Massachusetts.

2014 was a busy year for the team. We've recently launched our outdoor beer garden restaurant called American Fresh Brewhouse Assembly Row and we are in the final construction phases of a new brewery and taproom in Somerville Massachusetts at Boynton Yards.
