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%.
