New Beer Arrivals 2/20-2/24

Hi-Wire Enchanter Baltic Porter- “Historically brewed to withstand shipment across the North Sea, Baltic porters have a long tradition of being big, chewy beers. Enchanter draws from these roots by blending an abundance of dark malts with tannic dryness imparted by American White Oak. This robust porter was lagered for 8 weeks.”  ABV: 8.5%.


Hi-Wire Lager- “This true American lager is as approachable as it is delicious, a perfect balance of light Pilsen malt and German hops. Extensively lagered until the beer reaches peak maturity, this lager is your handcrafted option when only a refreshing, light beer will do.”  ABV: 4.6%.



Hi-Wire Hi-Pitch Mosaic IPA- “A balanced Western North Carolina IPA with bright citrus and tropical fruit aromas. Expect big grapefruit, tangerine and subtle melon flavors from the chorus of Mosaic & Centennial hops to balance out the malt in this dank & drinkable ale.”  ABV: 6.7%.



Hi-Wire Lo-Pitch Juicy IPA- “This thirst quenching, easy drinking IPA packs a bright citrus hop punch. Juicy American hops and a light malt bill make Lo-Pitch™ the perfect pairing for sandy shores, mountain tops, or your bestie’s birthday party.”  ABV: 4.9%.



Hi-Wire Bed of Nails Brown Ale- “Bed of Nails is crafted as an American ode to a traditional English brown. A light hop addition balances the natural sweetness present in the specialty malt. This beer’s delicate body and dry finish allow flavors of toffee and dark fruit to shine through.”  ABV: 6.1%.




Hi-Wire Gose- “Brewed with Pink Himalayan Salt, this Gose is tart, supremely drinkable and balanced with a complex fruit character. Crisp citrus and lemon-lime from coriander marries with our house Lactobacillus strain, creating subtle notes of stone fruit and apricot in this hazy, sessionable sour wheat beer.”  ABV: 4.2%.




Weyerbacher Sunday Morning Stout- “Sunday Morning Stout, 12.7% ABV, is an American Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels. Aromas of roasted coffee and bourbon awaken your senses while their flavors blend with hints of chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and caramel. The perfect cap to a Saturday night or start to Sunday morning.”



Prairie Phantasmagoria- “You don’t always think of big DIPA’s when you think of Prairie, but we have taken the perfect blend of malts and hops to create this explosion of citrus and piney flavors and aromas. This beer is so good we had to make it a Prairie staple!”  ABV: 8%.



3 Floyd’s Toxic Maltz- “Fruity banana esters and clove with more subtle herbal, citrus, and sweet bread notes. This medium bodied Belgian strong ale is malty sweet at first with a bitter warming finish. Brewed with our friends in the band Exodus. If you hit the floor you can always crawl!!”  ABV: 9.2%.  (No holds)



Hoppin Frog Double Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Stout- “Rich, smooth, complex chocolate flavors in this oatmeal stout are created from high-grade baker’s cocoa and Belgian chocolate malt.  These great flavors are complimented with a substantial amount of memorable, sweet cherry character, making this one great beer!”  ABV: 8%.



Avery Apricot Sour- “Bushels of juicy apricots and bright bursts of barrel-aged tartness are seamlessly infused to cultivate this deliciously distinctive and succulent sour ale.”  ABV: 7.3%.




Terrapin Hi-5- “This IPA features 5 tropical, orange, & citrusy aromatic and flavorful hops, a medium body with biscuit and caramel malt notes that bring balance to the beer. This California Style IPA’s big citrusy aroma and huge hop presence will keep you in awe sip after sip.”  ABV: 5.9%.



Terrapin Recreationale- “This hopped up session ale is light bodied with a present hop bitterness and a crisp finish. Dry hopped with Galaxy hops, this beer presents a subtle peach and passionfruit aroma.”  ABV: 4.7%.




Terrapin Hopsecutioner- “Light copper in color, this IPA has an aroma. of fresh pine and citrus. A strong malt backbone provides balance to an assertive hop bitterness.”  ABV: 7.3%.




Oskar Blues Deviant Dale’s- “Born at the cross roads, in a juke joint, as if Dale’s Pale Ale sold its soul to balance Deviant’s foreboding aromas of citrus, grapefruit rind and piney resins with a copper ball-of-fire color and inscrutable finish. The 2011 Great American Beer Festival Silver Medal Winner (American IPA Category) is the Devil incarnate with untold amounts of malt and hedonistic Columbus dry-hopping.”  ABV: 8%.



Southern Tier Nu Skool- “We spent over a year prototyping R&D versions of Nu Skool. This final version is one special beer. It is an IPA with a slight malty sweetness, but overall balanced & brimming with tropical, fruity, spicy, piney & citrus character. To contrast our IPA, which most closely resembles a traditional English IPA in malt & hop bills, we wanted to brew an India Pale Ale in a new way. West Coast brewers have been brewing lighter, more “Americanized,” yet still full of hop character & our brewers wanted to try their hand by brewing their take.”  ABV: 6%.


The Bruery The Order- “Monastic breweries wrote the book on complex ales that weave notes of dark fruits, spices, caramelized character and warmth into each sip. The Order summons that tradition and adds local inspiration. Our darkening, Belgian-inspired abbey ale features dark-fruited character from dates, Belgian-style sugars and subtle spicing from coriander, which compliments the Belgian yeast esters.”  ABV: 10.6%.



The Bruery Frucht Boysenberry- “Welcome to Frucht, our land of fruited Berliner Weisse-style beers. Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from fermentation in one of our twin oak foeder vessels – the largest known to be fabricated in this country. Each installment in the series features a new fruit, or Frucht, if we’re Sprechen sie Deutsch. This installment has boysenberries added, which impart a puckering jamminess and gem-like hue.”  ABV: 4.5%.

New Beer Arrivals 2/13-2/17

Fat Head’s Hop JuJu- “The magical hops cast their spell, the natives chant and the drums beat… First let us confirm that there is no witchcraft used in creating this fine brew. None. Really. Well maybe a little. A supernatural beer with a powerhouse of hops creating aromas and flavors of citrus, pine and tropical fruit with a juicy resiny hop finish. Hakuna Matata.”  ABV: 9%.  Only available for a limited time!


Rhinegeist Powder- “We’re embracing the snow and warming up with our White IPA. With a combination of Lemondrop, Bravo and Centennial hops, Powder showcases citrusy notes with a large percentage (30%) of wheat in its grain bill. Stay cozy out there!”  ABV: 6.8%.



Rhinegeist Mosaic- Now in cans!  “Dry Hopped Pale Ale with an ebullient grapefruit blossom & Mandarin orange bouquet.”  ABV: 5.6%.



Heavy Seas/ Union Partnership- “‘Olde Ale’ is an interesting beer style featuring flavors of nuts, cocoa, molasses, and dried fruits float over a chewy, luscious body of English malt goodness,” said Christopher Leonard, Heavy Seas’ Brewmaster. “Inspired by the rich, warming brews of a bygone era, and with the addition of local Domino Brown Sugar, this example of neighborly camaraderie will yield a true, comfort ale that should kindle its own Baltimore nostalgia.”  ABV: 8.5%.



Dogfish Head Olde School- “Fermented with dates and figs, this smooth barleywine has a unique flavor.  The concept for this beer came from an old cellerman’s manual Sam came across.  At about 15% ABV, this beer is a great candidate for aging. Over time, the beer dries out and the pit fruit flavors come forward and the hops recede. Our recommendation? Grab a few bottles when you find it — enjoy one now, and age the others for a bit. Let us know which you prefer!”



Stone Jindia Pale Ale- “Tired of being in the beer slump dumps? Looking for that certain sprightly spring sprig? Well search no further! One bottle of this aromatically fragrant, ginger-spiced lupulinicious liquid is all it takes to appease even the most rambunctious of palates. This is no snake oil philter good friends. We have the masterful inclination to call it exactly what it is –  EXCITEMENT for your taste buds!  Made from the exotic ginger root, juniper berry tincture and a citrus peel duo of lemon and lime, these botanicals mix miraculously well with a double dose of the most delectable hops known to mankind. Be sure to crook that elbow of yours, for one gloriously refined swig! You’ll find that another is certain to follow as if by divine influence. Good for everything a beer ought to be good for. Beware of Jindia Pale Ale counterfeits from hucksters and mountebanks, and accept only this genuine article.”  ABV: 8.7%.


Urban Artifact The Gadget-  Back for a limited time!  “We asked our taproom staff to design a beer…the consensus was “Sour Berry Bomb”. Get your tastebuds ready for this super-tart blackberry and raspberry phenom. A deep royal purple color and an amazing malt smoothy aroma will get you started, but this one is pure candy. ”  ABV: 6.1%.


Boulevard Rye on Rye on Rye- “Inspired by the success of our “X” series of special Imperial Stout releases, we’ve embarked on a journey to the outer reaches of our popular Rye on Rye. For this inaugural release, a rich, tawny rye ale is aged in first-use rye whiskey barrels then transferred to yet another set of first-use rye whiskey barrels for a second aging, effectively resulting in “Rye on Rye on Rye.”  ABV: 14.6%.


Ommegang Shortsleeve Saison- “This beer is brewed with lemon peel, coriander and grains of paradise.”  ABV: 4.5%.




Ommegang Siren’s Song- “Ancient mariners braved the Aegean, holds laden with figs and raisins. They faced great storms, monstrous sea creatures, and merciless pirates. But all paled compared to the Sirens, whose enchanted songs drifted to sea and drew the sailors to their end.  Our dark ale, Sirens’ Song, pays homage to the lost cargos, with figs and raisins added to the brew kettle. The resulting beer is dark, mysterious, and as irresistible as the Sirens’ seductive song.  Roasted malt and burnt sugar aromas lead, followed by flavors of dark fruit and notes of dark caramel. The finish is smooth and balanced with subtle bitterness.”  ABV: 9%.


Left Hand St. Vrain Tripel- “The usually peaceful St. Vrain River snakes out of the Rocky Mountains, winding mischievously towards our brewery. Named after Ceran St. Vrain, an 1800’s trapper and trader in the valley, St. Vrain is our version of a classic Belgian Tripel. Light in color and lightly hopped using Celeia hops, a touch of malt sweetness contrasts the warm spiciness hidden within. What at first appears benevolent can manifest into a mighty serpent in waiting.”  ABV: 9.3%.


Crooked Stave Vieille- “Vieille meaning “Old” is our artisinal barrel-aged Saison, lightly dry hopped. Each batch release is a diverse blend of Vieille casks that have taken on a soft Brettanomyces character before being lightly dry hopped. Dominated by a floral, citrusy hop character, a subtle herbal note and a tart finish, Vieille’s character exemplifies artisan Saisons.”  ABV: 4.2%.



Crooked Stave Colorado Wild Sage- “We at Crooked Stave find solace playing in the Colorado Mountains and possess a great pride for the place we call home. Paying homage to our great state and the even larger Western Region of the US, we brewed Colorado WildSage, a Brett Saison incorporating fresh herbs, including white sage and lemongrass. Brewed with the backcountry in mind, Colorado WildSage is dominated by a bright floral aroma, soft herbal notes and a crisp Brettanomyces bite from primary fermentation and further bottle conditioning with our house mixed yeast culture. Brewed with all Colorado ingredients in order to deliver a little bit of the high country to everyone who decides to share in this beer with us.”  ABV: 7.2%.


Crooked Stave Motif-  “A Dark Belgian Style Sour Ale.”  ABV: 10%.




Crooked Stave Surette- “Brewed with traditional harvest grains. Surette is a provision Saison with a tart and vinous character from extended barrel aging.”  ABV: 6.2%.




Crooked Stave Serenata Notturna- “Serenata Notturna is Crooked Stave’s take on a Belgian Strong Golden Ale, primary fermented with Crooked Stave’s mixed culture of wild yeast and bacteria in previously used Sherry Casks.  To further push the envelope with our mixed culture fermentations we knocked out a beer with a starting gravity of 22° Plato and fermented this beer to 12% ABV, a bit higher ABV then we usually brew at.”



Bear Republic Hop Shovel- “Hop Shovel is dry, but with a soft and rounded mouthfeel achieved by using a high proportion of wheat and rye. Hop varieties Mosaic, Meridian, and Denali provide an abundance of flavor and aroma.”  ABV: 7.5%.



Bear Republic Café Racer- “Café Racer  features aromas of bright citrus and resinous pine from the generous use of Citra, Amarillo, Cascade and Chinook hops which are complimented by a dry malt finish. The result is a high revving Double IPA that is loud and assertive, much like the rebellious street racers who inspired it. Never ride alone…”  ABV: 9.75%.




New Holland White Hatter- “Flavorfully blends the soft malt, fruity esters and delicate spicing of a Belgian White with hoppy citrus notes of an IPA. Pleasant hints of orange are framed with chamomile, coriander and grains of paradise.”  ABV: 5.5%.




Flying Dog Denali- An Imperial IPA from Flying Dog’s Single Hop Series, featuring Denali hops.  ABV: 8%.

New Beer Arrivals 2/6-2/10

Christian Moerlein Pacer- “Pacer packs an explosive punch of citrus aromatics and tropical fruit flavors backed by an easy-drinking pale body. Slight herbal notes are complemented by a burst of grapefruit and melon from an abundant dry-hopping of Citra hops, creating a pale ale that sets the pace.”  ABV: 6.5%.


Rhinegeist Homie- This year’s Homebrew Competition winner, brewed in collaboration with local brewery, Rhinegeist.  This year the style is a Belgian Dubbel, weighing in at 7.2%.



Rhinegeist Gramps- “A bold, bright and hoppy American Barleywine Ale that’s been waltzing with us at Rhinegeist since our first winter—you never regret spending a little quality time with Gramps.”  ABV: 8.2%.



Troegs First Cut- “Each spring, hop growers dust off their pruning shears and trim the first shoots, bolstering the bines for a rich growing season. First Cut – a mouthful of silky Simcoe and a touch of mango – is a nod to this ritual, without which the world would be a less hoppy place.”  ABV: 6.2%.



Alesmith IPA- Now in cans!! “A San Diego classic, AleSmith IPA showcases the versatility of American hops. Aromas of grapefruit and tangerine lead into an abundance of fresh pine and tropical fruit notes followed by a crisp, resinous bitterness. The complex hop profile is supported by a firm malt presence to create an incredibly flavorful and well-balanced IPA.”  ABV: 7.25%.



Against The Grain Pile of Face- “What’s the first thing you need to do when you start a brewery? Develop your logo, of course. With any potentially decent brewery, your logo must be a skull, it has to be a skull, you’ll be laughed out of the room if you don’t have a skull. So we went hunting in the area where all the great skulls have come from and were shit out of luck. By those fateful dumpsters all we found was this deformed neanderthal type deal, or maybe it’s from an ape, and a big ol’ pile of face. To celebrate our lack of success in finding a really cool skull, we are embracing another required cliché by brewing this American IPA. A modicum of simple malts provide the mediocre backbone to the mountain of various hops that are utilized and rotated throughout the brewing process. Look for dank overtones supported by various citrus and heirloom fruits. It’s the straight forward fuckin’ IPA that you always wanted from us.”  ABV: 6.5%.


Jackie O’s Morning Cloak- “A true session hop delight with grainy character from munic and wheat to add lightness to the grist. Aroma is full of oranges, lemon rind, floral nuances, and touches of grapefruit pith. Morning Cloak is a reference to the first butterfly of spring, as the morning sun coaxes it from the cocoon.”  ABV: 4.5%.



Warped Wing Pirogue- “This Belgian Style Black Tripel made with coffee was named after the type of small boat that carried the first settlers from Cincy up the Great Miami River to Dayton back in 1796. This beer was created through a collaboration between Warped Wing Brewery, Wood Burl Coffee Roasters & Press Coffee Bar. The beer combines cold brew coffee derived from a proprietary brewing process developed by Brett Barker of Wood Burl & Press with an innovative twist on a Belgian Style Tripel that brewmaster, John Haggerty, decided to turn BLACK!   A nose of coffee and baker’s chocolate with a touch of fruity and spicy yeast aroma. From there you will taste sweet flavors of brown sugar and fig that dissipate into a slightly vinous note contributed by the coffee’s slightly drying roastiness, slight notes of dark stone fruit and Belgian Style Tripel finish credited to the Abbey strain of yeast. ”  ABV: 9%.


Taft’s Cherrywood Amber- “American amber ale brewed with a touch of cherrywood smoked malt. Smooth and sultry. ”  ABV: 6%.



Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Blackberry Porter- “This is a big and dark beer with bold flavors to ease you into spring. Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Blackberry Porter porter has been brewed with the official state fruit of Kentucky and aged in bourbon barrels. This spring seasonal comes out with the bold roasted malt flavors complemented by a nose of fresh blackberries. ”  ABV: 8.3%.




Founders Frootwood- “We took a crisp, light-bodied cherry ale and hid it away in oak barrels that have held both bourbon and maple syrup. After a lengthy stint, it emerged a changed beer, blanketed in notes of warm vanilla and earthy sweetness. The wood proves itself the star of this beer, adding depth and taming the tart cherry while the maple imposes a velvety texture that lingers for not a moment too long.”  ABV: 8%.


Revolution Straight Jacket- “A strong ale to warm your insides in the dead of winter. Deep aromas and flavors of dark stone fruits, bourbon, molasses, toasted coconut and vanilla come in waves.”  Aged in bourbon barrels.  ABV: 13%.




Plus more 3 Floyd’s then I care to list, including some brand new ones we’ve never seen before!!  You should probably just come in and look around.  Please don’t ask for holds on 3 Floyd’s.

We’ll see you soon, cheers!












New Beer Arrivals 1/30-2/3

Rhinegeist Café Ink- “Ink Imperial Stout aged on Cincinnati roasted coffee beans.”  ABV: 10%.


Jackie O’s Bourbon Barrel Dark Apparition- “This hauntingly good brew in your hand is rife with dark complexities. Seven malts were used to create deep flavors of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and molasses. A hint of bitterness and herbal character from carefully selected European and American hops help support the monolithic maltiness. After conditioning in stainless steel, the beer was transferred into bourbon barrels. For 8 to 12 months, Dark Apparition waited patiently in oak barrels until the time was right to spring forth with its ghostly gusto. A truly decadent brew that is intended to be poured into your favorite snifter and given time to warm up from it’s dark and cool resting place”  ABV: 11.5%.


Dogfish Head Flesh&Blood- Released for the first time in cans!  “Flesh & Blood began with a ton of real citrus including lemon flesh and blood orange juice—hence the name—plus orange and lemon peel. Then the brewers began searching for the perfect combination of hops to perfectly complement the citrus flavors. After trialing number of different hops one-by-one, they emerged with Warrior and Centennial.  So what does this focus on simple, pure unadulterated fruit mean in terms of the aromatics and flavors in this beer? Flesh & Blood balances the resinous hoppy characteristics of an American IPA with the explosive zesty fruitiness and subtle drying tartness of citrus to deliver a highly quaffable ale that’s incredibly unique and lovely to down the whole year round.”  ABV: 7.5%.


Dogfish Head 60 Minute- Released in cans for the first time!  “60 Minute IPA is continuously hopped — more than 60 hop additions over a 60-minute boil. (Getting a vibe of where the name came from?)  60 Minute is brewed with a slew of great Northwest hops. A powerful but balanced East Coast IPA with a lot of citrusy hop character, it’s the session beer for hardcore enthusiasts!”  ABV: 6%.



Stone Ripper- “When it came to creating Ripper, we drew inspiration from the coastal surf cultures of SoCal and Oz. Sourcing classic Cascade from the Pacific Northwest and Australian Galaxy hops from…yes…Australia, we made a beer both lovers of frothy peaks and hoppy green buds will be stoked about. At the same time, we stayed true to our San Diego roots by pushing the hop boundaries of this style. While some might think it lingers on an edge far closer to an IPA, with all the dry-hop flavor and aroma, it’s actually right in line with the current-day interpretation of a West Coast pale. Ours just so happens to have an Aussie accent that’s cascading with a juicy amount of grapefruit and passion fruit hoppiness. So veg out or venture out. Either way, rip one open and taste this awesome golden nectar!”  ABV: 5.7%.


Stone Tangerine Express- “This ain’t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purée, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine — the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit — we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (you’d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didn’t tell you it was there). We’re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the “I want my beer to taste like fruit juice” crowd. This is Stone. We like our IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids.”  ABV: 6.7%.


B Nektar The Dude’s Rug- “Sweet, baked apples followed by a vivid blend of clove and cardamom. Black tea rounds out the flavor and leaves little to no tannin. Medium-bodied with a crisp, red apple skin aftertaste.”  ABV: 5.5%.




Maui Lemongrass Saison- “Belgian inspired Saison brewed with locally raised lemongrass.”  ABV: 5.2%.




Great Divide Chcocolate 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. Another great Yeti? Hell yes.”  ABV: 9.5%.


Boulevard Early Riser- “We start with a smooth, dark, rich and roasty porter, then add Colombian Cajibio Estate coffee supplied by our local friends at Maps Coffee Roasters to create an eye-opening marriage of our two favorite brewed beverages.”  ABV: 5%.




This week’s events are:

Wednesday:  Kill The Keg!!  Get $3 off growlers, and $2 off howlers and growlers all day long!  (Does not include Nitro, Meads, or 3 Floyd’s).
