Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout – Gold Bottle Release

Brewed in December of 2022, conditioned in stainless steel, and finally aged for 9 months in freshly emptied Kentucky Bourbon barrels. Coming in at 12% ABV, this beer has complex but balanced notes of chocolate, charred oak, vanilla, and coffee. Come sip this beer by the fireplace in the tap room or take a bottle with you to try at home. This beer will excite your taste buds and warm you up!

Farm Use Premium Lager beer label.

Farm Use Premium Lager

With a backbone of premium American barley and hops, Farm Use is the beer Grandpa drank! Unlike some of its more well-known cousins, this golden lager isn’t just light in body, it’s full of flavor too! A Premium hop aroma and low bitterness support it’s dry but slightly malty finish. Whether it’s after a long day at the office or a shift at the brewery, we can all agree on this one going down easy!

Blood Orange Horizon beer label.

1812 Blood Orange Ale

An unfiltered American wheat ale made with American two-row barley, white wheat, and generous portions of blood orange. A slight malty undertone and soft mouthfeel showcase the refreshing citrus flavor that this beer is all about!


Open the Gate Double IPA beer label.

Open the Gate Double IPA

In truly American fashion, we took this classic style IPA and turned it up to 10! This intensely hoppy and malty ale is packing a solid 8.3% ABV and 70 IBU. Don’t worry though, the malt and hops are layered together to create an approachable and delicious balance! Dry hopped at over 3 pounds per bbl with Amarillo, Citra, Mosaic and Simcoe hops we get big notes of citrus and pine that perfectly accent the crispness of this brew!


Lemon Blueberry sour ale label.

Blueberry Lemon Sour Ale

Part of our rotating series of fruited sour ales! This slightly tart wheat ale is a perfect balance of fresh citrus flavors and blueberry jam!

Strawberry Blonde Ale beer label.

Strawberry Blonde Ale

This easy-drinking light American-style ale has just the right amount of fruitiness! It is light straw colored with a sweet malt flavor on the front end that gives way to a jammy but fresh strawberry aroma and flavor.

Farmhand NE IPA beer label.

Farmhand NE IPA

This beer is working hard on the farm to quench your thirst! With a soft mouthfeel from tons of malted oats and a soft and pleasant bitterness, this IPA is as juicy as they come! Packed with over 3 pounds per barrel of Citra, Simcoe, Nelson Sauvin, Mosaic and Motueka hops we get strong aromas of fresh squeezed orange and pineapple juice rounded out by delicate madagascar vanilla.

Cumberland Blues pale ale label.

Cumberland Blues Pale Ale

Our flagship American pale ale. This deep golden hued ale is a hop forward beer with subdued bitterness that lets the bright fruity character of the hops show through! We get notes of grapefruit pith and sweet fruits that are balanced by a bready malt backbone.

Mason Road IPA

This classic American IPA is all about the hops! With a golden hue and a balanced malt flavor, this crisp ale is designed to let the hops shine! Look for piney, dank, and earthy notes in this all-American IPA!

1812 favicon

Rotating seltzer

Our house made seltzer is a light and refreshing alternative to our craft beers. This highly carbonated drink is paired with a rotating series of different fruits for a sweet and refreshing beverage!

1812 favicon

Praha prosim (Prague Please) czech dark lager

Long overshadowed by its cousin the Czech Pilsner, this dark and malty lager is the perfect balance of refreshing crispness and flavor! Brewed with 100% imported Czech malt and hops this beer pours a deep brown with creamy amber head. An aroma of roasted coffee beans and cocoa powder is rounded out by the taste of baker’s chocolate and freshly baked brown bread! With a full-bodied mouth feel and pleasantly dry finish, this beer is deceivingly drinkable! Na zdraví!


A fresh take on craft beers

Don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what people have to say about our locally-made beers.

Wonderful brewery!
Great little brewery out in farm country. Nice atmosphere. Had a flight of beers that was excellent. I greatly recommend the citrus ones and the Queen City cream ale. There was a food truck in the back, definitely try the pretzels.

Great beer in a great space
We capped off a busy day of outdoor activity in Cumberland with a visit to 1812. It’s a farm brewery about 10 min off the highway. The space was really nice – a variety of indoor and outdoor seating, a taproom and space for a food truck, and an outdoor stage and seating area for live music.

We’d certainly return if we are back in the area.

Such a hidden gem!
To me, this is a perfect place to spend a summer evening – cold beer, good food, and enjoyable music in the beer garden. Can't wait to go back!
