Descendants Beer and menu Compressed.jpg

Descendants Brewing Company at the Old Ship Inn has been brewing since January of 1995. Each week we brew fine ales based on styles from around the world in our brick-and-wood clad Peter Austin brewing system. All of our ales made with Ringwood yeast are unfiltered and served off their sediment to ensure flavor conditioning. Cask-style ales such as our flagship Best Bitter are served at cellar temperature from the beer engine with natural carbonation.  Our other ales are served slightly cooler with additional carbonation or nitrogen mix for the American palate.


Descendants Ales

Darker Shade of Pale – American Pale


Gently hopped and crisp. Beautiful copper color...a little “darker” for an American Pale. High five if you get the reference...

Alexander Hamilton – Porter 5.3%/16oz/$6

Light-bodied American porter. Dark and Roasty, with a hint of smoke. Brewed in honor of the man who launched a revolution...and maybe a chubby fictional catcher.

Hidden Nation Ales
