Founders Azacca IPA- Azacca IPA is brewed exclusively with Azacca hops, a special variety grown by Yakima-based Roy Farms. Named for the Haitian god of agriculture, the Azacca hop variety is distinguished by intense, tropical fruit notes. Azacca IPA includes a touch of caramel malt to provide a sweet backbone to the citrus, mango and orchard fruit flavors in this 7% ABV beer. The label artwork symbolizes the god of agriculture watching over a field where the ingredients used to brew the beer are being grown.
Dogfish Head Bitches Brew- A dark beer that’s a fusion of three threads of imperial stout and one thread of honey beer with gesho root. Bitches Brew has a 9% ABV and rates 99 on Ratebeer!
Fat Head’s Trail Head- Brewed with whole flower Simcoe and Citra hops, A portion of the proceeds from every pint of Trail Head Pale Ale goes directly to the Cleveland Metroparks Trails Fund, which supports the rehabilitation of the park’s more than 270 miles of trails.

Revolution Jukebox-Hero- NOW AVAILABLE IN CANS! A black IPA bursting with crisp, clean bitterness and layers of wonderful American hop character. Pale Ale, Munich and Naked Golden Oats give a toasty malt backbone with a smooth mouthfeel. The dark ominous color comes from the Chocolate Malt and the de-husked highly roasted malt. Warrior, Citra, Chinook, Centennial and Amarillo lend bitterness as well as a wonderful cornucopia of aromas and flavors of fresh citrus fruit, pine, fresh cut mint and fresh flowers they offer. ABV: 7.5%.
This unique release is a whiskey barrel-aged take on the brewery’s Small Batch 72 Imperial, an imperial chocolate cream stout. For every 100 bbl. batch, 400 lbs. of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory lustrous chocolate, made especially for 72 Imperial, are added to the brew. After spending a considerable amount of time in whiskey-soaked oak barrels, the finished product is molasses in color and smells of chocolate, wood, and whiskey harmoniously blended together. The beer has a dense and decadent mouthfeel and an abundance of rich flavors, including hints of sherry and dark fruit that compliment the toasted chocolate and oak notes remarkably. ABV: 7.2%.
