DuckRabbitLogo.pngDuckRabbitTeeshirt.jpgWe’ve been a fan of The Duck Rabbit Craft Brewery since their beginning in 2004. Founder Paul Philippon left a career teaching university philosophy to open the microbrewery in Farmville, NC. As a tie to his former life, he used a diagram from one of his philosophy books as the company logo: the duck-rabbit diagram looks like a duck or a rabbit, depending on the viewer's perspective

Paul decided to focus on dark beers, an oft-overlooked segment of the beer population (especially in North Carolina back in 2004). It was a gamble, but his beers have met with acclaim. And brewing seems to be going well: as he writes on their website, “When we brew, we’re happy and we dance. During fermentation, we sing softly to the yeast.”

About the beers:

The Duck-Rabbit Amber Ale is a medium bodied beer with a lovely tawny copper or bronze color. This brew emphasizes malt complexity with layered caramel malt flavors. We put a lot of effort into getting this amber ale just right and we're extremely proud of the result!

DuckRabbitBeerVeryDark.jpgThe Duck-Rabbit Brown Ale is an American brown ale brewed with loads of hops from start to finish (it’s hoppy and beautifully bitter). Amarillo hops in the boil provide a spicy citrusy bitterness. Saaz dry hops in the fermentor provide a refined flowery aroma. These hops are supported by a grain bill of seven varieties of malt. Oh yeah!

The Duck-Rabbit Porter is very dark in color. This robust porter features a pronounced flavor of roasted grains reminiscent of dark chocolate. Also, Paul and Brandon aDuckRabbitBeerServingTray.jpgdd oats to the grist to give a subtle round silkiness to the mouthfeel. We’re confident that you’re really going to love this yummy porter!

The Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout is a traditional full-bodied stout brewed with lactose (milk sugar). The subtle sweetness imparted by the lactose balances the sharpness of the highly roasted grains which give this delicious beer its black color.
