The latest and greatest to land in the shop:
Tallgrass Ginger Peach Saison
Sessionable and refreshing with a strong balance of it’s namesake flavors, Ginger Peach Saison is perfect for the pool, patio, lake, or float trip. Effervescent and fruity with a light to medium body.
Firestone Walker Newness (bottles AND cans)!
Beautiful floral and citrus hop aromas greet the nose with undertones of lightly toasted malt. Crisp pale and crystal malts offer a hint of sweetness. Subtle hop bitterness offers a refreshing finish.
Brewmaster Matt Brynildson went to the mountain and returned with a vision for a different kind of Session IPA, one that would be brewed and dry hopped with a globetrotting selection of new hop varieties from Europe, New Zealand and North America. He foresaw a beer that would deliver massive hop aromas, a signature malt balance and an empty glass before you knew what hit you. And so the newest member of our Jack IPA family was born
It opens with a biscuity toasted malt aroma and a hint of oak and vanilla. Pale malts create a smooth malty middle with ribbons of caramel, English toffee and toasted oak. A tribute to English pales traditionally fermented in cask.
Pivo Hoppy Pils
Everything we love about classic German Pilsner with a hoppy Bohemian twist. Pils is a bright straw colored lager beer with playful carbonation topped with beautiful white foam lace. Delicate lightly toasted malt flavors underscore noble German hop character. Hallertau-grown Magnum hops deliver the lupulin foundation while generous amounts of Spalter Select hops bring floral aromatic and spicy herbal notes. As a twist on the traditional Pils, we dry hop with German Saphir for a touch of bergamot zest and lemongrass. A refreshing, light-bodied and hop-driven Pils.
Stone/Ecliptic/Wicked Week Points Unkown
It seemed no single beer could adequately convey the collective talents of Portland, Oregon brewing legend and Ecliptic Brewing founder John Harris; Luke and Walt Dickinson, the brewmaster duo behind North Carolina’s Wicked Weed Brewing; and Stone Brewmaster Mitch Steele. So, this veritable triad of power opted to brew TWO beers. The first was a traditional Belgian-style tripel aged four months in oak barrels that originally housed red wine, then tequila. It was then blended at a one-fourth to three-fourths ratio with a freshly brewed West Coast double IPA to create this beer. A variety of diverse flavors coalesce into something more unique than any one beer our trio could have conceived.
ARRIVING ON FRIDAY:
Forgotten Tales of Last Gypsy Blender Vol 1 – EXTREMELY Limited
Ruddy golden, with yeast driven esters of lemon and banana all wrapped up with a generous dose of rapscallion delight.
North Peak Ballyhoo
The North Peak Hefeweizen is an unfiltered, cloudy golden colored beer made with pilsner and wheat malts and Tettnang and Hallertau hops. Brewed with a traditional Bavarian yeast strain, Ballyhoo has a huge banana nose with hints of spice and clove.
Old Fisherman’s Ale is a dark ale brewed with spices. Pannepot is a term that describes the Fishing Boats from the village of De Panne. Brewed and bottled on the Deca Brewery in Woesten-Vleteren.
The Pannepot Reserva earned it’s name from 14 months spent in French Oak. A hazy dark-brown colored beer with a creamy beige froth, the Reserva’s aroma is very malty and softly spicy with accents of dried fruits. It tastes of oak, caramel, fruit, coffee, and refreshing hops.
Trois Dames La Fiancee Pinot Noir – Limited
Like l’Amoreuse, La Fiancée is a combination of dry saison and the freshly-squeezed juice of local grapes, blended and fermented together. The result is a relatively dry beer with a light, fruity, vinous nose. In this case, Pinot Noir grapes are used. Unfiltered, unpasteurized and re-fermented in the bottle, La Fiancée will continue to evolve and grow more acidic over time, thanks to the wild yeasts that occur naturally on the grape skins.
Fyne Ales/De Molen Mills & Hills – Limited
A jet black imperial stout with a dark caramel coloured head. The aroma is of prunes and dark fruticake with a smooth treacle like taste and a lasting warm bitter finish.
Mikkeller Beer Geek Cocoa Shake (It’s Back!) – Limited
From the beer geek breakfast series – the beer that really put Mikkeller on the map – we decided to shake things up by adding a truck load of cocao to the french press coffee trick, creating a whole new dimension to the beer that are loved by freaks and geeks worldwide.
