  • Sarah’s Citra-Ale: a Citra-hops IPA - refreshing, light and cheeky
  • Off-to-War IPA: our perennial favorite, a Hop-devil style IPA
  • Tavern-Keeper’s Singular Stout: a stout of hearty roasted flavors and coffee notes
  • Sam Jones’ light: a Sam Adams-style light beer
  • Patriot’s Pilsner: a classic pilsner-soft and soothing

Join us as the Acton Minutemen call the meeting to order with a booming salute. Help preserve the 1707 Faulkner Homestead, 1732 Jones Tavern and the history that made Acton great.
