Lagered Farmhouse Beer – Farmhouse Lager
5.5% ABV – Jester King Brewery – Austin, TX
 
We brewed the beer with well water, liberty hops, Pale Moon malted barley from Blacklands Malt in Leander, Texas (66%), and malted Jimmy Red corn (33%). The grist for the beer was 100% grown in Texas, and malted at small, independent malt houses. We primary fermented in stainless steal with our mixed culture of brewers yeast, and wild yeast and bacteria. After primary fermentation, we lagered the beer for six weeks near freezing temperature. According to the Oxford Companion to Beer by Garrett Oliver, lagering comes from the German word “lagern” meaning “to store”. “Before the days of mechanical refrigeration, German brewers stored beer in cool, deep caves, especially during the hot summer months”, writes Oliver. After lagering, we naturally conditioned the beer through refermentation in bottles and kegs.

Imperial Bock – Bock – Eisbock
12.5% ABV – Alaskan Brewing Co. – Juneau, AK
 
This is a stronger version of a Doppelbock, which is often produced by freezing a Doppelbock and removing the ice crystals to intensify flavor and strength. Our Imperial Bock shares the same flavor intensity and strength of an Eisbock, but instead of freezing this beer, we brewed it to high alcohol content and then let it rest on oak chips to enhance the mellow vanilla sweetness.

Dino S’mores – Stout – S’mores
10.5% ABV – Off Color Brewing – Chicago, IL
 
Imperial stout brewed w/ graham flour, marshmallow, molasses, cocoa nibs & vanilla bean

Our malty and rich bourbon barrel-aged Scotch ale is introduced to smooth maple syrup, warm cinnamon and sweet vanilla for an incredibly decadent brunch-inspired sipper. One taste and you’d swear you were digging into your Sunday morning French toast. Breakfast for dinner, anyone?

Extra White – Witbier
4.7% ABV – Vedett – Puurs, Vlaanderen
 
Do not adjust your screen! Vedett Extra White is meant to be cloudy! And while this highly refreshing Belgian white ale may be hard to see through, she is a beer you can enjoy with all your (other) senses!

Revel in her refreshing citrus aromas with touches of coriander…

Feel the fulness of her smooth, grainy texture… And savour the subtle sweetness of her slightly perfumed, honey-like finish. All that remains is to listen to the sound of contentment as you open the next bottle!

This is a big, dark ale with a complex and rich chocolate and caramel malt character followed by a touch of warmth and light malt sweetness, leaving you ready for more after each shovelful. You will love this so much you won’t have time to dig a six-footer, so make it a Shallow Grave.

We’re sure you’ll dig it.


Bakery: Banana Bread – Stout – Pastry
10.2% ABV – The Bruery – Placentia, CA
 
Tuck into in this rich imperial stout inspired by the warm aromatic flavors of banana nut bread. This full-bodied, blended imperial stout is treated with walnuts and banana to give it that unmistakable nutty banana bread sweetness.

Original Blend – Cider
5.1% ABV – Downeast – Boston, MA
 
The original unfiltered. A hard cider that tastes like apple cider. Smooth and refreshing, perfectly balanced. Like the cider your grew up drinking.

Old Rasputin – Stout – Russian Imperial
9.0% ABV – North Coast – Fort Bragg, CA
 
Produced in the tradition of 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia’s Catherine the Great, Old Rasputin seems to develop a cult following wherever it goes. It’s a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish.

La Chouffe – Belgian Blonde Ale
8.0% ABV – Brasserie d’Achouffe – Achouffe, Wallonie
 
Combining notes of fresh coriander and fruity tones, is the drink which gives gnomes their zest for life. At least, that’s what these imps say when they are thirsty. Their secret used to be jealously guarded from one generation to the next until the day they shared the recipe with humans to seal their friendship. Of all the legends from the wonderful region of the Belgian Ardennes, the tale of LA CHOUFFE is the one which most merits re-telling.

Rare Vos – Belgian Amber
6.5% ABV – Ommegang – Cooperstown, NY
 
Our take on the smooth, easy drinking ambers poured in cafés across Belgium, Rare Vos (Strange Fox) takes its name from a tavern near Brussels known for cycling contests, pigeon races and outstanding ales. Pouring a brilliant copper with a creamy white head, this bright, beguiling beer is sensational to session, and pairs wonderfully with mussels, frites and other pub fare.

Because at the end of the day, it’s good to enjoy the end of the day.


Cinq Cents (White) – Belgian Tripel
8.0% ABV – Chimay – Baileux, Wallonie
 
Named Cinq Cents in 75 cl (25.4 fl.oz.) bottles, this beer, with its typical golden color, slightly hazy appearance and fine head, is especially characterized by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast.

It was first brewed by the monks of Chimay at Scourmont Abbey in 1966.

Above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma.


Grande Réserve (Blue) – Belgian Strong Dark Ale
9.0% ABV – Chimay – Baileux, Wallonie
 
The Chimay Blue Cap, baptized “Grande Reserve” in 750 ml bottles is a dark Trappist beer with a powerful aroma, the complex flavor of which improves across the years. It was first brewed as a Christmas beer by the monks of Scourmont Abbey in 1956.

This authentic Belgian beer, whose tinge of fresh yeast is associated with a light rosy flowery touch, is particularly pleasant. Its aroma, perceived as one enjoys it, only accents the delightful sensations revealed by the odor, all revealing a light but agreeable caramelized note.

It is ideally served at cellar temperature (10 to 12°C).


Vital Spark – Dark Ale
4.4% ABV – Fyne Ales – Cairndow, Argyll and Bute
 
Named after the famous fictional ship that sailed Loch Fyne, Vital Spark is a satisfyingly rich, flavourful dark ruby ale for those unafraid to roll their sleeves up and get their hands dirty.

Island Gigantism – IPA – Imperial / Double
9.0% ABV – Bookhouse Brewing – Cleveland, OH
 
The phenomenon of Island Gigantism is one of exceptionalism; that animals, left on an island with no or few natural predators, would grow to such massive size as to be thought of as giants. We apply that maxim to the hops used in this double IPA, but with a focus on their organoleptic qualities. Specifically, a preponderance of New Zealand-grown hops, showing huge white wine, lime zest, tropical fruit aromatics. These isolated hop varieties grown on coveted soil, free of pests and intense crop management practices, truly explode in the glass with their aromatic intensity. Laid across a clean, slightly warming malt body, with a reliable bitterness, we see the apotheosis of our field of study in hop aromatics, truly a golden sight to have and to hold.
