On tap at Gentle Giant:

 Paleolithic Pils German Pilsner—A crisp Pilsner brewed with a touch of Munich malt to add a slight biscuit flavor profile. Gently hopped throughout the boil with Hallertau Blanc gives it the perfect balance of bitterness and floral aromas.
 Citrazoic Double IPA—Made from the world-renowned Citra hops, this beer pours a medium amber with an intense citrus aroma and flavor including grapefruit and lime aromas along with gooseberry, passion fruit and lychee notes.
 Bobby Doesn’t Know Shea Hazy IPA— You ask and you shall receive. Back by popular demand, we made a New England. IPA.  This double IPA has a traditional hazy appearance combined with a soft mouth feel perfectly fitting to the style. Dry hopped intensely with El Dorado and Cashmere, it gives tasting notes of tropical fruit punch and ripe pineapple. Should we keep cranking out New England IPAs? I think we just might.
 Baryonyx Black Lager—Made using bottom-fermenting lager yeast which imparts a dry crispness to this beer, this brew has a malty sweetness and a hoppy bitterness, with notes of coffee and chocolate.


Gentle Giant Brewing Company is located at 7 North Main Street in Pearl River, New York.
