Shad Derby Pale Ale

Back East is excited to celebrate Windsor’s Annual Shad Derby Festival with a new beer.
Shad Derby Pale Ale is an American Pale Ale brewed with 100% Centennial Hops from the Pacific Northwest.

Beginning Friday, April 18th, we will have complimentary samples in our tasting room, as well as growlers of Shad Derby Pale Ale available for sale.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer will benefit the Shad Derby Festival.
