Rare Form Brewing Taproom

BABY BEATS 4.1%

A younger sibling to Sexy Beats that sets itself apart with a sessionable ABV. A supportive malt flavor keeps this beer robust and full-flavored, with plenty of hops on the nose and in the finish to stand out. Notes of melon and peach.

CONFETTI MEXICAN LAGER 5.7%

Mexican-style lager brewed with NY corn and Zeus hops. Notes of corn tortilla with a crisp lager finish.

ROYAL COCONUT CREAM ALE 6%

Upstate New York-style cream ale with a twist. You’ll feel like royalty sipping this light-bodied ale aged on locally toasted coconut. The coconut flavor is a subtle sidekick to enchant the palate but still allows the traditional style to shine through

MOXIE DOUBLE IPA 8%

Distinctly smooth and decidedly different. This beer drinks like a fluffy screwdriver but finishes nice and dry leaving your palate ready for more. Hints of orange, tangerine and clementines.

BLING OF ZEUS ALL NY PILSNER 6.6%

Using 100% New York-grown Zeus hops, this imperial pilsner is our take on a classic style. Bringing a gentle black currant and muscat grape character to the traditional German style, this refreshing beer rules the elements and awakens the senses.

MEMBER'S ONLY BROWN ALE 6%

A slightly sweet and nutty brown ale, Members Only gives the classic English style an American plot twist. No jacket needed, though, as this classic style is brewed for everyone.

ALTGEIST GERMAN-STYLE ALTBIER 5%

A traditional Dusseldorf altbier with a complex malt profile and a delicate lingering bitterness with a touch of floral esters. A classic style that isn’t brewed enough in the states. Great beer for BBQ and hanging all day with friends.

YACTIE TROPICAL STOUT 4.5% (on nitro only)

Tropical stouts are popular in the Caribbean and are stouts with brewed with lager yeast. We add raw triticale for added spice and depth.

KARASS ROBUST PORTER 6.6%

Inspired by Kurt Vonnegut, this robust porter is a part of our “Karass.” Enjoy this dark and roasty beer when you are with others to whom you are cosmically linked in some significant manner. Hints of bitter dark chocolate, roasted brown sugar, almond, toffee.

FUDGE FANTASY STOUT 5.7%

The Cookie Factory’s Fudge Fantasy is the cookie of choice for many in the city of Troy. With the chill of winter knocking at our door, we decided to concoct up something with holiday cheer: a stout with the addition of cookies and fudge from this generations-old bakery. Much like the confection that inspired it, Fudge Fantasy Stout is a sweet beer with notes of chocolate, and dark malt.

MO MAPLE, MO PROBLEMS 7.5%

A collaboration with Tipsey Moose Tavern. A brown ale brewed with generous amounts of local maple syrup.

SATAN'S GUT IMPERIAL STOUT 9.8%

This complex stout pays homage to the dangerous Colorado River rapid in which it shares a name. Aromatics of raisin, fig and vanilla are both familiar and revolutionary. Flavors of chocolate and dark fruit finish with notes of dark coffee. A rich, full body delivers these strong flavors to your palate with ease and grace.
