Otter Creek

Otter Creek has been hitting, hopping and dosing brews with creativity since acid-wash jeans were hip. Under the direction of brewmaster Mike Gerhart, we are undergoing a renaissance of rad, a rebirth of cool–throwing a bit of kind into the kettle whenever possible. Our hop-soaked ales are available throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic regions.

Otter Creek Backseat Berner

ABV: 7%
Seasonal Availability: Year-Round
Beverage Type: IPA

The first year-round IPA in Otter Creek history, Backseat Berner is an American beauty that’s loaded with juicy hops.

Like Oslo, Brewmaster Mike’s 150 pound Bernese mountain dog that adorns the label, Backseat Berner is your everyday companion for life’s adventures.

This brew clocks in at 7% ABV with 68 IBUs, so load up your buds and partake in this juicy exploration of American hops.

Otter Creek Couch Surfer


We burned the rulebooks, and when the smoke cleared we created this counter-culture interpretation of a California-style common lager dosed with juicy hop flavors.

Mosaic and Galaxy hops shine through a golden, orange-hued lager that’s as clean and free as the open road.


Otter Creek Double Dose IPA

ABV: 8.5%
Seasonal Availability: Year-Round
Beverage Type: Double-Dose IPA

The Green Mountain landscape is dotted with breweries that have established Vermont as one of the premier beer destinations in the World. We pack a lot into our little state— abundant local foods, great music, natural beauty and amazing beer. Vermonters know the finest things in life are best enjoyed with good buds. Friends and brewers Sean Lawson and Mike Gerhart have teamed up to create a beer that features the best qualities of each brewery.

Otter Creek Fresh Slice

ABV: 5.5%
Seasonal Availability: Summer
Beverage Type: White IPA

A summer sipper built for lawn chairs, lawn games and lawn mowing, Fresh Slice features the spicy, estery flavor profile of Belgian yeast laced with the juicy hop flavors and aromas of American hops.

This White IPA recipe tips the scales with a slice of clementine, a hit of coriander and an 1/8th of…wait, what? This one features a crisp, fresh citrus ripeness deriving from additions of clementine juice and sweet orange peel in the brew process. The first Otter Creek can offering, this is one slice you’ll be holding all summer long!

Otter Creek 25th Anniversary

We flipped the couch cushions, unzipped the fanny packs and emptied our pockets in search of all the dank, juicy hops we could pull from our stash. When the smoke cleared we threw some Citra, Simcoe, Mosaic, Galaxy, Columbus and Sorachi Ace into the kettle and developed a Double India Pale Lager for our 25th Anniversary.

This big, bold boom box in a bottle brings the beat and delivers a hip-shaking hoppiness that dances around the palate.

Kickin’ limited bottles and draught your way beginning in August.

ABV: 8.5%
