Rohrbach’s neoteric series explores what is possible in a beer. These small-batch limited releases show off our brewers’ talents and allow our patrons to imbibe in something a little more adventurous. Neoteric brews are released about every two months, and are only available for that amount of time. Check out our upcoming events for the next release party at the beer hall. Release parties offer samples of the new brew, freshly-filled 4-packs to take home, and even custom pint glasses if you’re one of the first to order a pint!
radle on lemon radler
Rohrbach Brewing Co. is excited to announce its release of Radle On, a lemon radler . German for “cyclist,” this radler is a crisp ale blended with fresh lemon for a light, refreshing pint. It’s a thirst-quenching sessionable summer brew perfect for all things fun in the sun.
More commonly known today as a shandy, the radler style has an interesting origin in itself. The drink was invented by innkeeper Franz Kugler in a small town outside of Munich, Germany. When cyclists announced their return to the inn after a long day, Kugler realized he didn’t have enough beer for his patrons. To stretch the beer, he blended it with fresh lemonade and the rest is history.
Rohrbachs gives a nod to the story with the beer’s branding, encouraging cyclists to keep on going. You may notice another subtle nod in the packaging–an homage to a classic rock n’ roll song. So whether you’re jamming classic rock at a backyard barbecue or finishing a long morning of cycling, crack open a Rohrbach Radle On and pause to enjoy Upstate NY’s fleeting summer days.
neapolitan scotch ale
An ice cream twist on our classic Scotch Ale, this brew was originally crafted in collaboration with the Rochester Beer Market. Brewed with lactose for a silky smooth body, then conditioned on vanilla, cocoa nibs, and strawberry puree, this Neapolitan variation keeps our classic Scotch Ale’s full body and sweet caramel flavor that we’ve all come to cherish. Expect an opaque milky ice cream-like profile when you crack open Neapolitan Scotch Ale.
