Braxton Dead Blow- They’re newest can release! “Dead Blow is a Tropical version of the Foreign Extra Stout. Eighty pounds of macerated dates made its way into this brew, partnered with a Dry English Ale yeast to provide a vibrant fruity/tropical aroma with a slight amount of fruity esters. The Dry English ale yeast helps this beer attenuate lower, however leaving a residual sweetness on the finish as well as increase the fruity characteristic received from the Dates. Dead Blow is a dry, roasty, fruity, full bodied, smooth stout, that is lighter on bitterness.” ABV: 7.2%.
Bell’s Smitten- “Smitten began as Golden Rye Pale Ale, part of a series of beers that explored the use of rye malt at our pub, the Eccentric Café. Our spring seasonal offers rustic flavors from rye malt combined with citrus, resinous hop aroma from Pacific Northwest varieties to create a crisp, refreshing take on the classic Pale Ale.” ABV: 6%.
Arbor Espresso Love- “Oatmeal and 20 pounds of fresh roasted coffee from the Ugly Mug Café contribute to a mildly chalky espresso character balanced by a rich, sweet creamy maltiness. Coffee finish dissolves into chocolate with a slight roasty bitterness.” ABV: 6.7%.
Alpine Windows Up- “This West Coast style IPA is 7% and chocked full of Citra and Mosaic hops.”
Off Color Hell Broth- “Brewed in collaboration with Amager Bryghus, Danish Style Wild Ale brewed with; Cranberries, Juniper Berries, Wild Blossom Honey, and Lemon Blossom Honey.” ABV: 6.30%.

Stone Enjoy By 02.14.17- “It’s not unusual to see pronouncements of “I Heart Hops,” “I Heart Chocolate” or “I Heart Coffee” throughout #socialmedia, printed on T-shirts and, natch, emblazoned on coffee cups. Over the past couple of decades we have helped add “I Freaking Heart IPAs” to that lexicon. Today, passionate people can’t imagine a world without all of the above. For this special edition, we added chocolate and coffee to make this devastatingly fresh IPA even more seductive to the palate. We humbly suggest that you use this libation to proclaim your love for someone… and we suggest that someone be you. Loving yourself is exactly what this libation is all about. Love now; remember forever. ” ABV: 9.4%.
Warped Wing Jolly Tar- “Dark brown with ruddy highlights and has a subdued hop character with a mildly assertive finish. The aroma is malty with lots of bakers chocolate and mild raisin-like notes. The aroma flows into the flavor of the beer with chocolate, raisin and fig like character. The mid palette is malty with medium body that finishes somewhat dry.” ABV: 5.7%.
Warped Wing Baltic Argonaut- “This Baltic Porter is black in color with a dense tan foam. The aroma boasts a bouquet of roasty, coffee notes with mild caramel sweetness. The malt character features lots of dark malt flavors like roast, chocolate and vanilla complimented by warming alcohol notes and hints of nutty, toffee, bready flavors. ” ABV: 11.5%.
Sixpoint Hi-Res- “To see the hop cone up close, we zoomed in microscopic, and found a hi-res view. In Hi-Resolution, the hop optic was magnified; our perception, fully amplified. It’s microscopic. It’s telescopic. It’s off-topic. It’s Mad Science. ” ABV: 10.5%.
Great Divide Hop Disciples- “A Rotating Hop Project takes a bright, clean IPA and puts a different hop variety at the forefront of the sensory experience every year. The inaugural release features Idaho 7, which shows up punching with aromas of orange zest and stone fruit complemented by a hint of black tea leaves in an uncharacteristic element of subtlety. Hop Disciples may look tough on the outside, but with its golden blonde hue and approachable 6.2% ABV, we promise it’s a lover not a fighter.”
Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree- “We actually took the Crooked Tree recipe and doubled all of the ingredients except the water, just the way a DOUBLE should be made. Big hops balanced with tons of malt give this beer a huge body. Enjoy right away or let it mellow and smooth with some age.” ABV: 12%.
Against The Grain A Beer- “Walk up to the bar and what do you ask for? A Beer, naturally. It doesn’t always matter what it is, or what you want in this case. You want something light? We’ve got A Beer for you. You want something hop forward? We’ve got A Beer for you. You just want to camp out on that bar stool and crush something? We’ve got ABeer for you. We’re only marginally apologetic that it’s not kettle soured with Mosaic & Amarillo hops. This is better. This is a straight forward, refreshing extra pale ale utilizing the newest varieties of German aroma hops (Hallertau Blanc & Mandarina Bavaria). Call it a session IPA if you need, call it a pale ale if you prefer, hell, it doesn’t matter what you call it, what matters is that you stop talking about it and throw ABeer down yer gullet.” ABV: 4.5%.
