New Arrivals 5/8-5/19

Nickelbrook Ceres- “A sour beer with sea salt, cucumber and lime juice; sounds insane, right?  Nope, this thirst-quenching Gose (pronounced Gose-Uh) is a perfect balance between tart, refreshing and citric, like a well-crafted cocktail. Named for the Roman goddess of agriculture and crops, Ceres is our tribute to the importance of fresh, natural ingredients. Wheat and barley, cucumbers and limes, Himalayan sea salt and a hit of Lactobaccilus combine for the perfect summer brew. The gods were smiling on our brewers the day they came up with this beauty.  Tart, crisp and fresh, this Gose will soon be gone.”  ABV: 4%.


Nickelbrook Raspberry Uber- “Our brewers decided to have some fun and took one of our most scientific creations and made it even more amazing!  Our Berliner Style Weisse uses our refreshing sour style of wheat beer, which has then been aged on fresh Canadian raspberries.  The result is a massive raspberry flavour explosion that still maintains the incredibly unique qualities of our Berliner Style Weisse.  You’re going to love it- it’s a scientific fact!”  ABV: 3.8%.



Madtree Sol Drifter- “A refreshing blonde ale made for extended periods of drinking during summer days well into the evening. With copious amounts of New Zealand Motueka hops lending lemon and lime notes, Sol Drifter ends with a crisp and tart strawberry finish.”  ABV: 4.3%.



Avery Perzik- “A classic saison—dry, crisp, fruity, spicy and refreshing with a dose of summer—peaches!”  ABV: 6.4%.




Clown Shoes Baked Goods- “Baked Goods is a sessionable hoppy pale ale dry hopped with Mosaic, Azacca, Idaho 7 and Centennial hops, which add tropical fruit flavors and aroma.”  ABV: 5.5%.



Maui Pueo- “A West-coast style Pale Ale with balanced malt profile, kettle and dry-hopped for hop intensity.”  ABV: 5.6%.




Jackie O’s Chiron’s Flame- “An imperial red that was aged in bourbon barrels for 16 months. A rich barleywine style ale that exhibits strong notes of caramel, dark sweet cherry, and vanilla.”  ABV: 11.1%




Rhinegeist Sabertooth- “Saber Tooth Tiger is a Prehistoric IPA that attacks the senses with potent notes of Papaya, Mango and Peach yet finishes it’s prey (your palate) with a crisp clean citrus bitterness.”  ABV: 8.5%.



Zaftig Juicy Lucy- “Juicy Lucy is a lighter IPA made to become your everyday beer. This delicious IPA delivers citrusy punch full of fruity flavors, namely papaya, apricot, and guava. This lovely lady was double dry hopped with Citra and Rakau hops.”  ABV: 7%.



Bell’s Pooltime- “A refreshing Belgian-inspired Wheat Ale with light clove notes. The truly distinguishing feature is the use of 100% Montmorency tart cherries grown in the Traverse City region of Michigan. These cherries add a subtle tartness and bright counterpoint to the other flavors, enhancing Pooltime’s fruity character and making it the perfect beer for all summer activities.”  ABV: 5.2%.



Ommegang Brunetta- “Brunetta is a mild, clean Oud Bruin, well-balanced and with a touch of caramel sweetness from the specialty malts.”  ABV: 5%.




Ommegang Bend The Knee- “Brewed with pils malt and flaked oats and hopped with Saaz, Bravo, and Styrian Golding hops. It pours a golden hue with a large, frothy head. Both the aroma and flavor mix maltiness and citrus from the hops, while Ommegang’s signature house yeast produces prominent fruitiness. Wildflower honey added during fermentation provides light sweetness to the beer, which finishes dry and with firm hop bitterness.”  ABV: 9%.



Hi-Wire Citra Gose- “This gose-style ale is dry-hopped with Citra hops and the beer hits 4.2% ABV”




Warped Wing Mr. Mean- “This Mean ass IPA is pale orange with copper highlights and has a funk load of Amarillo and Centennial hops providing citrus and fruity aromas and a very bitter finish. The malt character is slightly bready/nutty with a dry finish. At 9% ABV and 96 IBU’s this beer will keep your inner soul groovin’ with every sip!”



Great Lakes Hop Madness- “Beware, drinker! Hop hysteria could happen to you! Especially after indulging in our dry-hopped Double IPA’s shockingly intense tropical aromas and hair-raising bitterness.  Maniacally dry-hopped, with a frenzy of juicy aromas and formidable pine finish.”  ABV: 8%.



Deschutes Pacific Wonderland Lager- “We’ve always believed the best way to respect tradition is to brew the unexpected. So when we set out to create a sessionable lager befitting of the Pacific Northwest, our sense of exploration led us to this dry-hopped wonder befitting of everyday adventure. Citrusy Tettnang Mandarina hops combine with the crisp, bright character of a traditional lager to deliver a beer that is truly refreshing, and undoubtedly worth sharing.”  ABV: 5.5%.




Braxton Summertip- “This kettle soured German style ale features 50% wheat malt and is balanced with the use of lactobacillus. Very little to no hop presence allow the bready/biscuit characteristics to come through, with a nice tart Passion Fruit finish.”  ABV: 4.2%.



Sierra Nevada Hoptimum- “Our brewers selected the finest, most flavorful hops, pushed them beyond their limits and forged them into this all-new triple IPA. This reimagined Hoptimum is our hoppiest beer yet, providing a blend of tropical and citrus hop aroma that delivers a refined yet aggressive character.”  ABV: 9.6%.

New Beer Arrivals 5/1-5/5

Braxton Twisted Bit- “This traditional German style lager has the malt profile of a Helles and the hop character of a Pilsner, but is slightly stronger than both. The minute addition of common minerals to the brewing water, and the longer traditional decoction mash impart a crisp and remarkable balance between the malt complexity and the subtle bitterness.”  ABV: 5.8%.


Rhinegeist Peach Dodo- “This German Gose is bright and frisky, tart and saline, and dances on the palate with punches of peach. Thirst quenching beyond all imagination, Peach Dodo is the finest of liquids for a beach picnic, or for making history.”  ABV: 4.4%.



Platform Palesner- “Cleveland has always been a city of makers. Once the fifth-largest city in the nation, Cleveland’s hardworking residents rolled out an endless supply of iron and steel, cars and clothing, beer and whiskey. Those were heady times for the industrial Midwest. But fortunes change, factories close, jobs leave, and somewhere along the way we lost our will to create. That’s changing – and fast. Born of a desire to build, a whole new generation of makers are fueling what’s being branded a Rust Belt Revival. Artists, designers, builders, chefs and brewers once again are working to make Cleveland a capital of creation. But they’re not going it alone. The catchword these days is collaboration, powered by a mutual desire to return Cleveland to its rightful place of prominence. Want proof? You’re holding it, a unique beer birthed by two such makers: CLE Clothing Co. and Platform Beer. Part pale ale, part pilsner, 100% Cleveland.”  ABV: 5%.  Platform is new to Cappy’s, and this beer and Speed Merchant are year round offerings!


Platform Speed Merchant- “A sharp bite from the wheat malt is followed by American hop flavors of pine and citrus in this hazy White IPA.”  ABV: 6.6%.




Platform Gordon- A Raspberry Cider.  Semi-Dry, all the way delicious.  ABV: 6%.




Jackie O’s Oro Negro- “American Double Stout, brewed with black walnuts and conditioned on oak, cacao nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and Habanero peppers.”  ABV: 10.5%.




Dogfish Head Romantic Chemistry- “What you have here is a serious India Pale Ale shacking up and hunkering down with mango and apricots. At the same time! Romantic Chemistry is brewed with an intermingling of mangos, apricots and ginger, and then dry-hopped with three varieties of hops to deliver a tropical fruit aroma and a hop-forward finish.  It’s fruity, it’s hoppy, it’s tasty!”  ABV: 7.2%.


Ommegang Fruition- “Dry-hopped wit beer brewed with passion fruit, mango, and kiwi.”  ABV: 5.3%.



Rockmill Tripel- “A golden ale that is rich & full bodied with dried fruit.  Delicate Saaz in the nose.”  ABV: 9%.




Great Divide Roadie- “Named both for the road biking cyclist (roadie) and the German word for cycling (radler) and inspired by Great Divide’s roots in the cycling community. Brewed with natural grapefruit puree, this easy-drinking ale pours a hazy sunrise gold and is bursting with citrus aroma. Unique in its class, this Radler is refreshing and slightly tart, with just enough bitterness to keep both cyclists and spectators coming back for more.”  ABV: 4.2%.
