If you’re into craft beer, don’t miss “Utica On Tap” on March 22nd at the Stanley Theater. One of the breweries represented with beers to sample is Otter Creek Brewing of Middlebury, Vermont.

Otter Creek Brewing is bringing two of its most popular products. As their website is under construction, here are product descriptions by leading beer sources.

According to

Otter Creek Copper Ale

Style |Altbier | 5.00% ABV


A Düsseldorf specialty, an Altbier is a German style brown ale, the “alt” literally translates to “old” in German, and traditionally Altbiers are conditioned for a longer than normal periods of time. Other sources note that “alt” is derived from the Latin word “altus,” which means “high” and refers to the rising yeast. Take your pick, but the extended conditioning mellows out the ale’s fruitiness and produces an exceptionally smooth and delicate brew. The color ranges from amber to dark brown, medium in carbonation with a great balance between malt and hops.

Availability: Year-round

According to

Wolaver’s Organic IPA

Family India Pale Ale

ABV 6.5%

Characteristics: Bitter, hoppy


Vermont’s organic Wolaver’s beers were contract brewed by Otter Creek starting in 1998. The Wolaver family was so happy with the results that in 2002 they bought Otter Creek and merged the companies. The Wolaver’s lineup continues to be all-organic.

Flavors and aromas: The nose has citrusy hops and toasty malt, which is an odd combination. The first impression of this beer in the mouth is one of sweet, grainy malt and flavor hops, but bitterness marches in at its own pace and gradually takes over, building into a gripping, somewhat astringent center for the beer.”
