Boulevard Spring Belle – Saison – Featured on Draught!
Spring Belle Saison marries the crisp, spicy flavor of a traditional farmhouse saison, with its citrusy hop notes, to the fresh floral aromas of chamomile, rose petals, and elderflower. Late hopping with Calypso and Lemon Drop rounds out this drinkable spring bouquet.
Haandbryggeriet Haandbakk – Wine Barrel Aged Norwegian Ale *
The gentlemen at Haandbryggeriet have gone where no Norwegian brewer has gone for over a century: they’ve gone wild. Wild yeast, that is. For the first time in more than 100 years, a sour beer using wild yeast and lactic acid bacteria has come to life in Norway. It all started back in 2006 when oak barrels arrived from a vineyard in Burgundy. Although they arrived empty, they didn’t arrive empty-handed. These vessels had been maturing red wine for five seasons and were brimming with wild, lactic, life. The time that they spent in contact with wine left loads of wild bacteria and yeast in the wood, ready to impart sourness to whatever entered the barrels. The brewers began with a base beer fermented with their house yeast. This base then received a mix of wild yeasts and was transferred to the Burgundian barrels. As it happily relaxed in the oak, it soaked up more wild character from the bacteria and yeasts waiting in the wood. This oaky interaction lent a complexity to the beer that can’t be reproduced in industrial brewing. Intense and truly unique! 8.5% abv
Mikkeller Blackest – Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout *
Not really any words needed for this badboy. Sample it fresh or store it for many, many years to come. Get it while it lasts! The batch is Barrel aged on 10 different Bourbon Whiskey Barrels, before getting blended all together and tapped.
Worse Worst Worster – American-Style Barleywine *
Things went from bad to worse? Hells yes they did. Brewed at De Proef in Belgium.
Prairie Artisan Ales Eliza5beth – Midwest Farmhouse Ale * – Featured on Draught!
Eliza5beth is a golden farmhouse ale that Prairie aged on apricots to allow sourness and light fruit flavors to add complexity to the beer. Stop it, guys. Just stop it. Actually, please don’t ever stop it.
Prairie Artisan Ales Prairie-Vous Francais – Saison **
Prairie-Vous Francais is a celebration of simple elegance. This farmhouse ale is brewed to be refreshing. They use barley, oats, and wheat to build a foundation for saaz hops and brettanomyces bruxellensis to play. You’ll find this beer to be slightly tart and a touch hoppy. Prairie-Vous Francais is one of their many farmhouse beers they hope you will love as much as they do.
