There’s something for everyone landing at Cappy’s this week, from dank IPA’s to stouts, to sours. Take a look!
Clown Shoes White Tail Unidragon- White Tail Unidragon is a 12 percent ABV Russian imperial stout brewed with rye malt as well as Cascade and Columbus hops before being aged in bourbon barrels. The base beer is Ohio Unidragon, which was brewed last year exclusively for Ohio. If you like big beers, this is one that you have to try!
Rhinegeist B-Side- “Last year we teamed up with Shake It Records to collaborate on a Record Store Day IPA and dubbed it A Side. We had so much fun brewing and grooving and pouring beers in Northside that we figured we’d make it a tradition! Flip it to the B Side IPA (6.8%, 65 IBU), pop the cap, set the spin, and beatbox your grin to these fair dinkum beats of the banana benders.”
Bell’s Oatsmobile- This hop-forward session pale ale uses a blend of classic and modern Pacific Northwest hops, including Mosaic, Equinox and Glacier, for a pungent blend of peach, mango and tropical aromas. The signature ingredient – oats – are what makes Oatsmobile Ale stand apart, and gives it a body that you don’t see in most other session Pale Ales. ABV: 4.3%.
New Holland Incorrigible- “Incorrigible celebrates the beauty of mischief. Wild yeasts and bacteria run free in our sour-aging cellar, the House of Funk, creating vibrant sour and acidic character in this delicate, yet complex wheat beer. The refreshingly tart session beer will tease your palate with a subtle, layered nuance.” ABV: 4%.
New Holland Dragon’s Milk Reserve Coffee&Chocolate- This beer is aged with coffee and chocolate. Rich, indulgent chocolate flavors are seductively punctuated with dark and roasty coffee bitterness. ABV: 11%.
Warped Wing Self Starter- “The name of this session IPA was inspired by both the electric self-starter invented by Daytonian, Charles Kettering in 1911 and by definition: a person who is able to work or play without needing a lot of help or instruction. At 5.2% ABV this beer features the perfect balance between malt, hops and a clean finish – a combination of which creates a beer with high drinkability. This session IPA is pale orange in color with copper highlights and citrus/fruity aromas and flavors from the Amarillo hops that were added during the boil and dry hopped at the end of fermentation. The malt character is slightly bready or nutty to start with a bitter dry finish.”
Sixpoint Jammer- “…the Mad Scientists kept tweakin’ that Jammer till it rocked so hard. Bygone brewers, repping the Sixpoint star, provided the concept and our friends at Jacobsen Salt hooked us up with the key ingredient. It’s salty, it’s sour, and it’s slammin’. It’s Mad Science.” ABV: 4%.
Deschutes Hop Slice- A trio of hops come together in this crisp session IPA. Brewed with Meyer lemon, Hop Slice balances floral hop notes and a subtle citrus kick. ABV: 4.5%.
Mikkeller Crooked Moon Tattoo Stockholm- An Imperial Stout brewed with figs, brewed at De Proefbrouwerij. ABV: 8%.
Short’s Brewing Melt My Brain- “Melt My Brain is an experimental Golden Ale brewed with coriander, juniper berries, limes and blended with tonic water to create the tasting experience of drinking a gin and tonic cocktail. Delicate aromas of citrus and pine flow into bold bright flavors of sweet lime with a slightly sticky bitterness. Refreshing and clean, a tasty tonic effervescence provokes the palate for more. Melt My Brain was awarded a silver medal in the Experimental Beer category at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival.” ABV: 6.1%.
Prairie Vous Francais- “Prairie-Vous Francais is a celebration of simple elegance. This farmhouse ale is brewed to be refreshing. We 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 our many farmhouse beers we hope you will love as much as we do.” ABV: 4%.
Prairie Phantasmagoria- “Phantasmagoria is an IPA that is low in malt flavors, but high in hops. We brew this beer as a nood to the big hoppy beers of the west coast. We use loads of citrusy and piney hops at the end of the boil and in the fermenter to make this beer a hop experience.” ABV: 8%.
Stone Encore 6th Anniversary Porter- “We celebrated our first five years in business by releasing anniversary India pale ales, with each subsequent IPA brewed to be hoppier and more intense than the previous. For our 6th anniversary in 2002, we extended this concept by making an intensified version of Stone Smoked Porter. We cranked up the malts and hops a notch or three and conditioned it on French and American oak, which accentuated our porter’s distinctive smokiness and amplified its chocolate and roast coffee flavors while also adding subtle notes of toffee, cherries, dried berries and vanilla. We’re proud to give those who missed out—as well as those who didn’t—a fresh shot at experiencing this smoky, dark-as-night wonder.” ABV: 8%.
Nowhere in Particular Batch #001- “Batch #001 is a double rice IPA. The inclusion of rice makes this 9.4% ABV IPA drier than most, accenting the hefty dose of Citra and Amarillo hops. It’s a fitting tribute to the Japanese Rice goddess, who is also a fertility goddess.” Limited release, get it while it’s here!
Leelanau Brewing Illuminati- An Imperial Stout brewed at Jolly Pumpkin with naturally occurring wild yeasts and aged in four fresh wet bourbon barrels and one wild, sour bourbon barrel. ABV: 8.5%.
Leelanau Brewing Michilimackinac- “Brewed at Jolly Pumpkin with naturally occurring wild yeasts and the first time we have used bourbon barrels instead of French Oak. Four Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels became known as the Funky Four after they spent 1.5 years holding cherry port at a #Leelanau winery before heading to Jolly Pumpkin where they held La Roja and Biere de Mars for four years. We brewed 10bbls of Line 5 Batch 1 and aged it in the Funky Four and brought in one fresh, wet Buffalo Trace barrel and blended them together.” ABV: 8%.
Arbor Brewing Mr. Delicious- “This beer leads off with a stiff round-house punch of citrusy hops, follows up with a quick kick of bready malts and warming alcohol, and finishes with a powerful and lingering bite of complex layered hops. This popular brew was inspired by ABC founder, head brewer and spiritual leader Matt Greff whose cartoon enhanced image graces the label. Pairs with salty cured meats, strong stinky cheeses, whiskey and cigars. Also great with man-cave classics like pepperoni pizza and loaded nachos.” ABV: 9%.
Great Divide Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti- “Another revered incarnation of our legendary imperial stout. We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish.” ABV: 9.5%.
