Naked Dove Brewing Company

It was great to get a taste of new beers from New York’s newest craft brewery Naked Dove. I sampled the Amber, IPA and Porter. All the beers were delicious but the Porter was the real standout for me. Pleasant hop flavor upfront that transitions into a nice roasted chocolate flavor, wonderfully balanced. I’m already craving some more. Dave Schlosser is the Brewmaster and owner along with 2 other partners. Dave is an alumni of every Brewery in town (Rohrbach, Custom Brewcafters, and High Falls Brewing Co.) so it’s great to see him break out and do things on his own. He also mentioned they will be coming out with a Black Rasberry beer which wasn’t ready in time for the tasting. Naked Dove IPA and Porter are currently on tap at Monty’s Corner and the IPA is on at the Tap and Mallet. So give it a try. The Naked Dove Brewery is located at  4048 Route 5 and 20, Canandaigua, NY, 14424. The tasting room is open and available for growler fills Thurs – Fri: 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm, Sat: 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm, Sun: 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm. You can reach them at 1-585-396-ALES with any questions. Check them out on facebook or on their website http://www.nakeddovebrewing.com/

 Update: Berry Naked Black Raspberry is now available at select locations as of 4-17-2011.
