THE DOUBLE VERSION OF HOMESTYLE…MOSAIC FOR DAYS. It’s like your original favorite, but double the fun! 

TASTING NOTES: more, mosaic, juice

Pep Talk Pilsner 4.2% ABV (cases only)
Our latest pilsner blends perle + hallertau blanc + nelson into an uplifting conversation of bright key lime, sparkling white grape cider, and overripe passion fruit, at an encouraging 4.2% to boot. We can all use a PEP TALK now and then, can’t we?

Ever Clever DDH DIPA – 8.5% ABV 

DDH VERSION OF EVER CLEVER. DDH WITH SIMCOE, MOSAIC, MOTUEKA, & CENTENNIAL. It’s the cleverest of the ever-ests. Your favorite banter-slinging, foxy DIPA now bursts with a wicked double dry hop that’ll keep your taste buds as nimble as your wits.

Tunnel Vision DBL IPA
Focus, focus. This IPA showcases a blurred-edge mouthfeel, multilayered juiciness of Mosaic and Citra, and a chewy, lemon starburst zing courtesy of El Dorado oil. This variant incorporates a double dry-hop of Citra, because why not more Citra?

Mood Ring Strawberry 7% ABV 

A FRUITED IPA WITH STRAWBERRIES & VANILLA, HOPPED WITH MOSAIC, CITRA, & VIC SECRET. Your groovy cruise director called.  She wants to take you down through endless fields of ripe, fresh picked strawberry + vanilla bean. 

Wavelenght DIPA -8.3% ABV 

A DOUBLE IPA HOPPED WITH VIC SECRET, CITRA, AND EL DORADO. Wavelength channels the pulse of vic secret, citra, and el dorado into an intense surge of tropical fruit.

Tri-Clamp & Gasket
For the first time ever, we are releasing a tripled version of our popular DDH IPA Clamp & Gasket. 𝗧𝗿𝗶-𝗖𝗹𝗮𝗺𝗽 & 𝗚𝗮𝘀𝗸𝗲𝘁 is a TIPA that’s triple dry-hopped with Amarillo, Citra, Strata, and Idaho 7. Pouring a soft golden yellow, this hazy juice bomb is fully saturated with a thick cloud of ripe juicy citrus, sticky melon glaze, and a pungent tropical mélange. All of this and more hand-delivered on a massive downy body. (10% ABV)

Chula – Mango Gose 
We’re excited to announce the return of 𝗖𝗵𝘂𝗹𝗮, our fan-favorite summer seasonal! You can look all year long, but you won’t find a beer that turns up the heat quite like Chula. Inspired by mangonadas, the original summer refresher, this fruited Gose is brewed with Mango and a Big Mich Chile Spice Blend sourced by our friends Feast City exclusively for this release. When it comes to our beer, we brew them with passion and patience hoping that they mature into something special. Sometimes, though, we get lucky and the result exceeds our expectations by a mile. (6.5% ABV)

Huntley Helles Lager 
This German-style lager is brewed with our soft water and some of our favorite German malts and hops, then lagered in our horizontal tank. An extremely soft mouthfeel with a pleasant malt profile and hints of noble hops, then ends in an ever so smooth finish.

Sonic Painting – Fruit Smoothie style Sour 6% ABV 
A fun smoothie style sour ale loaded with Mango, Red Prickly Pear, Pink Guava, Marshmallow and Milk Sugar. Drippy sweet mango, tart guava, and red prickly pear with slight earthiness all blend into a drink reminiscent of early vacation mornings. 

NEW – Corporate Sellout Move IPA 
This is an IPA! It’s a collab with Cloudburst, in Seattle. They make great hoppy beer. They are industry vets, which plays into the name (we’ll get to that). They are the sort of small brewery that spends a ton of time doing wet hop beers, getting to know growers, learning about the business of hops, and generally just being in the loop about all things hops. It’s enlightening to talk to them, drink some of their beers, and understand that the idea that maybe IPA could look like a hazy beer but not just be a glass full of smoosh with no structure at all whatsoever.  

Mirror Universe Hazy IPA 
A Double Dry Hopped Hazy IPA brewed with Wheat, Oats, and (too many) Citra, Mosaic, and El Dorado hops. #donthazemebro

Big Doinks West Coast IPA 
Extra dank IPA with the stickiest of hops available

Crankin’ Foamers – Modern Times brewing Collab
Who’s crankin’ foamers this weekend? It’s the beer for when you need a beer and that’s why it’s only available in 12-packs from your local liquor store!

Foamers Lime 
Foamers Lime is our idea of a perfect summer day, in can form. It’s our favorite drinking beer, Crankin’ Foamers, with some really choice lime puree thrown into the mix. Bright, zesty, juicy, maximally crisp and drinkable.

Dreamyard Reloads!!
New England IPA that’s made from oats and wheat. Splendidly hazy with aromas of stonefruit, pineapple, and citrus. An insane amount of Citra and Sultana hops per barrel make this beer an incredibly juicy and citrusy treat with an approachable level of bitterness.

DDH Dad Jokes DBL IPA 8.6% ABV
Can you pass me the grill tongs? I can’t make it, I have to mow the lawn. When was the last time you got your oil changed? Our yearly salute to all the dads, aspiring dads, dad figures & dad joke enthusiasts out there. This round with double the love by way of our hand selected Citra, Mosaic, Cashmere & Vic Secret. And for the last time… Don’t touch that f*%&ing thermosta

LOUDBITS – Weldwerks/Blackstack Collab (juicy bits meets loud pack) 8% ABV 
An 8% DDH Double New England IPA, brewed in collaboration with WeldWerks Brewing. It is a combined recipe of their famous Juicy Bits and our yearly favorite Loud Pack. It features BlackStack’s hand selected Citra, Mosaic and Australian Galaxy, in combination with El Dorado hops selected by WeldWerks.

Sprudel Kolsch
Sprudel is our German-Style Kolsch. This pseudo lager/ale is technically an ale but fermented cool to create a clean character with little fruity esters that play off the crackery pilsner malt and touch of toasty Munich malt we used. Subtle noble hop character for balance at the end.

Pixel Density 
Our core hazy, exclusively hopped with our hand-selected Citra. Clocking in at 6.5%, this beer is a versatile, full-of-flavor, not-too-heavy, bright, pillowy hazy IPA to reach for. Oh yea, it’s  a 4.1rating on UNtappd too. 

P3 Pilsner 
This American-Style pilsner is made with 6-row American barley. This will provide a distinct character unique to American lagers. We took the ABV to 4.7% to further increase the drinkability. Lightly-hopped to provide balance to the malt. This beer isn’t hoppy, it isn’t malty, it’s simple at its core and the perfect companion to hiking, grilling, sitting by the pool, or enjoying in a hammock.

Misty Mirage DDH Hazy IPA 
This 8% Hazy IPA is made with Citra Lupomax, Galaxy, Idaho7 Lupomax, and Mosaic Lupomax hops and is made @ Fair State Brewing Co-op.

Juggling Five Dbl IPA 
We’ve aimed at staying trippy when it comes to hops by using experimentals, playing with proportions, tweaking our hop schedules, all that jazzy stuff. We’ve come to really love a specific handful of them, so we went for a tripping FIRST and threw all FIVE of the bad boys into a DIPA. You’ll have a tropical rainforest of aromatics and notes, rounded out with a distinct crisp dryness.

Killer Kolsch
A clean, crisp beer, Kölsch offers a very slight fruity flavor and aroma. It is light gold in color, with a delicate head. This light-bodied beer appeals to nearly everyone who samples it.

A crisp, clean, massively refreshing Mexican lager with subtle notes of flaked corn. Limitlessly crushable, beyond satisfying.

Although it sure drinks like it and not a soul would be none the wiser.

HDHC Dreamwave Fluctuation is dangerously smooth and is sure to fluctuate your dream waves.

Limited release – Coconut Almond Delight – Imp stout (almond joy bar)
We wanted to liquify one of our favorite candy bars so we boiled up a big base stout and conditioned it on shredded coconut, almonds, Madagascar vanilla, and cacao nibs.

Data Points – DBL IPA 
Pouring vivid yellow in color, aromas of OJ, rainbow melon, and a blueberry strain of the devil’s lettuce lead into dank flavors of passionfruit juice, ruby red grapefruit, Frankenberry cereal, melon, complex concord grape, and strawberry.

To Space we go DDH DIPA – Unseen Creatures Brewing & Blending Collab
Vivid yellow with a tropical aroma, flavors blast off into notes of syrupy pineapple chunks, mango candy, passionfruit, cannabis, complex berry and black currants all wrapped in super dank flavor.

Early Admission DBL IPA DIPA (8.0%)
Brewed with our buds & famed State Fair Craft Sud Slingers @ballparkcafe for their “Kick Off the Summer” Event at the State Fair Grounds. Featuring a particularly juicy quartet of Mosaic, Mosaic Cryo, Cashmere & El Dorado Hops. Better stock up before the hoarders get there.

Stack At the Lab DDH DIPA – Equilibrium Collaboration! (8.4%)
Had to catch a cab back to the lab with our buds at Equilibrium Brewery from Middleton, New York.

Braaaaaaains Cherry/Mango/Pineapple  Double Fruit Sour
This one is absolutely stuffed with Cherry, Mango, & Pineapple and then of course we hit it with our double secret smoothie treatment of sea salt, lactose, and vanilla for an absolute 🔥🔥🔥 flavor combo.⠀

NEW Style – Sometime Around Midnight – Dbl IPA 
A brand spankin’ new Double IPA! We brewed this one with oats and spelt for a light, fluffy body and hopped it with NZH107 & Vic Secret.

Slang Du Jour – Pineapple Upside down Cake 
We get asked to bring this one back all the time so once again we went full on Pineapple Upside Down Cake and stuffed in a ton of pineapple, cherry, brown sugar, granola, cinnamon, lactose, and vanilla beans for another one of those flavors that probably shouldn’t taste so much like the real thing but it totally does.

Chonk Strawberry/Guava/Banana/Fluff Sundae Fruit Sour 
Our lovable hefty boi is back and this time he’s absolutely slathered with strawberry, guava, banana, and marshmallows. Our little absolute unit is suuuuper sticky but having a great time & breathing all heavy because this combo of flavors is extra decadent and tasty as hell.

“Zach Morris Cellphone” coming back April 13th from Lion Bridge!

Another re-release coming from Lion Bridge as they are bringing back “Zach Morris Cellphone” on April 13th! Here are the details from Lion Bridge on this brew:

Zack Morris Cell Phone (Hazy IPA, 6.8%) – This beer is based on a mixed drink of the same name that maybe never existed. Back in days of yore, Quinton, founder of LBBC, was told by a barfly to order a ZMCP and that it contained orange. When he went to order it, the bartenders shrugged their shoulders, and the barfly had vanished. In an attempt to bring closure to this mystery, we have made a massively dry-hopped hazy IPA with orange puree and hope that it brings Quinton some peace.

Taproom opens at 3pm, available on draft and to-go packs! 

Lion Bridge bringing back “Peachy Keen” and “Me Time”!

Two tasty brews will be returning to Lion Bridge brewery tomorrow (March 23rd)! Peachy Keen and Me Time make their anticipated returns when the brewery doors open at 3 p.m.! Here’s more on these two beers from Lion Bridge:

Release #2 is Me Time Hazy IPA.

What’s tomorrow, Saturday? Wait, what? Wednesday!?!? Hey, it’s ok to reach for a bit of Me Time tomorrow when the taproom opens at 3pm. Let the Citra and Cashmere dry hop be your aromatherapy, and then give the can a crush when you’re done for some added stress relief!

Oskar Blues shipping inaugural “BA20 Vol. 1: All Monde” nationwide today!

oskar blues

Oskar Blues brewing company will start shipping their new barrel aged series nationwide starting today. Their BA20 series will kickoff with All Monde. This beer will be available in 12 oz 4 pack cans. I’m assuming this will be relatively limited to certain stops, and I’m not sure exactly who will get it, hopefully I’m wrong though the footprint is a bit wider. Chees!

Here’s more on this brew:

To make All Monde, BA20 Volume 1, the shiny new Spinbot is packed with toasted almonds and Madagascar vanilla beans. A big time imperial stout racked in bourbon barrels for nine oaky months is swirled through until the nutty and sweet flavors are maximized to their full potential. The result is a barrel aged imperial stout with the toasty almond and vanilla flavor dials turned to eleven.

Abu Nawas Rolling out some new Beers this Tuesday!

 

Abu Nawas distribution will be supplying our shelves with some terrific sounding beers just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. This coming Tuesday you should be seeing the following beers hitting distro in the CR/IC area:

*Evil Twin
image_thumb[3].jpgEvil **F is for Fruit Salad 16oz Can – Gose:

Let’s face it – we all like to put labels on things. It just makes us feel more comfortable. What assumptions have people made about you based on your race, religion, gender, the way you dress, or even the beer you drink? We did in fact label this year for your convenience. It has a fresh tartness, a twist of salt and a balanced fruitiness – apparently a complete reflection of your personality. We hope you like what this label says about you?

evil twin soul.jpg

*Evil Twin It’s Soul Good, Man 16oz Can. – IPA🔥🔥🔥🔥For the Breaking Bad Fans among you! Better Call Saul!

If you’re committed enough, you can make any story work

*Evil Twin Tart Cherry Soup Superior 16oz Can – lactose IPA brewed with tart cherries.

the flava.jpeg

Evil Twin Pineapple Flava Influencer 16oz Can:

This is The Flava Influencer IPA and it is an IPA brewed with oat, lactose, vanilla, pineapple and gooseberry. The beer will hit 7.8%-AbV and it will be packaged in 16oz cans at Dorchester Brewing in Boston, MA

Stillwater
*Stillwater Extra Extra 16oz Can 🔥🔥🔥 – Double brut india pale ale

extra.jpg

Stillwater Dank Dank 16oz Can 🔥🔥🔥–  dank double IPA

dank.jpeg

Omnipollo
*Omnipollo Maz 16oz –

Maz, formerly known as Mazarin, is my take on a “thinker’s beer”. Rather than being big and undecipherably complex I wanted to create something that would calm a hop yearning nerve without fuddling the brain too much. In other words, a lavishly hopped ale of judicious ABV — an Extra Special Pale Ale if you will.

In fact, so extra special that it snatched a gold medal at the Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival in 2013.

**Lion Bridge Brewing**

-Dinner Sauce IPA – here’s what the brewery had to say about this brew

We’ve got a brand new brew for you this week! Friday we’re tapping Dinner Sauce IPA, a true everything beer. Lemony and herbal with some tropical fruit character and just enough wheat creaminess to balance out the dryness. Go ahead, have seconds, you deserve it!

-Olde No. 17 – 

The official beer of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade Society and brewed to commemorate its 40th anniversary. This is the classic pub stout you know and love with a twist; 100 lbs of organic mashed potatoes were added during the brew to increase the dryness and slightly boost the alcohol. Roasty, with hints of dark chocolate, nuttiness and rich creamy mouthfeel. Slainte!

-Aloha Sculpin

With Aloha Sculpin, we used Brux Trois yeast to turn our award-winning IPA into a tropical oasis, with bright and refreshing notes of mango, pineapple and guava, along with a slight haze and smooth mouthfeel
