The Unthinkable Muscleman

Muscleman is Double Imperial India Pale Ale.  Muscleman is a true wonder to behold.  An incredible bitterness balanced with rich malty strength.  With loads of caramel malts and a touch of rye, Muscleman retains a bit of sweetness that belies its massive punch.  The combination of Cascade, Centennial and Simcoe hops provide a spicy, fruity slight tropical note to accompany the deep, piney bitterness.  We put over 3.5 pounds of hops in each barrel.

ABV: 10%

SRM: 12

Devil Monkey

Devil Monkey is Double Imperial India Pale Ale done in the New England style. A rich creamy mouthfeel brought about by American wheat, toasted oats and a unique London ale yeast pair with a fresh fruit aroma bursting with loads of Amarillo, Simcoe and Citra hops. A slight sweetness enhances the ‘dreamsicle’ feel of this beer. Devil Monkey is a perfect beer for the hot summer months and is best drank fresh so the aromas are at their peak.

ABV: 9.5

IBU: 70

SRM: 6

Devil Monkey takes its moniker from the urban legend popular in the New England and northern Appalachian valley. The devil monkey of fame is a bright orange ape that is made appearances as recently as 2013 in New Hampshire where a local sheriff claims to have tracked the creature for miles before it vanished into the thick pine forests.




Our brewmaster, Nick Kocis, is two things for certain.  A beer geek and a Francophile. The word pamplemousse (pronounced: pomp-leh-moose) is the French translation for grapefruit. It also happens to be Nick’s favorite word in French. When it came time to brew his first production batch there was no question what it would be. Citrusy, hoppy and big in grapefruit aroma, Pamplemousse American Pale Ale is our premiere flagship beer. Loads of Cascade and Amarillo hops and over sixteen pounds of fresh grapefruit zest go into each 10 barrel batch.  This provides the juicy aroma that makes Pamplemousse what it is.

Who we Are

Dead Bird Brewing

Dead Bird Brewing was founded in spring of 2015 by Nick Kocis and Jeremy Hach.  They decided that the focus of the company should be on marketing and brand management so they went with a contract model.  Nick would use his background in microbiology and professional brewing to ensure quality product was being produced while Jeremy would put his masters in business to bear on the executive side of the company.  With the intent of brewing outstanding specialty beer featuring high abv and a spotlight on unique ingredients, we released our first beer, an American Pale Ale featuring ruby red grapefruit zest called Pamplemousse in November of 2015.  We quickly followed it up with four big imperial beers each released once a year and packaged in bombers and kegs.  Dead Bird’s motto is ‘Outstanding Beer by Upstanding Gentlemen’.  We strive to embody both parts as best we can.  We aim to make the most amazing beer we can make and whenever possible participate in charitable events, community outreach projects and fundraisers in our distribution area. Find out more
