New Release for Week of November 9

WEYERBACHER
Winter Ale ½, 1/6 kegs and 6 packs
Winner of a Silver Medal in the 1998 World Beer Championships, Weyerbacher Winter Ale is brewed with deep-roasted chocolate malt. The taste predominates with a warm, roasty flavor, balanced out with a slightly dry finish. It’s smooth but not cloying, with a warming belt of alcohol, 5.6% ABV.
Quad 1/6 kegs and 4 packs
Big and delicious, QUAD is an elegant dark ale. Rich with complexity and flavor, try savoring it with a fine dinner. You also might enjoy it as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to a dessert, but QUAD stands alone quite well. We recommend enjoying QUAD in a brandy snifter or wine glass so you can drink in the aroma of this fine ale. 118.% ABV

 

 

ALLAGASH
Curieux ½, 1/6 and 25oz
Allagash Curieux was our first foray into barrel-aging. Curieux is made by aging our Tripel Ale in Jim Beam bourbon barrels for eight weeks in our cold cellars. The aged beer is then blended back with a portion of fresh Tripel. The resulting beer is smooth with coconut and vanilla notes and hints of bourbon.

BALLAST POINT
Navigator 1/6 kegs
Ballast Point’s Brewing and Spirits Navigator Doppelbock is inspired by the strong German dark lagers and bock’s. Briess Extra Special malt helps create the source of the flavors that dominate the aroma and taste buds in Navigator. You are able to enjoy forward flavors of caramelized malt sugars and dried fruits, such as raisins, apricots and prunes. This strong lager is a big malt-driven beer that truly deserves the nickname “liquid bread.”
Barmy Ale 1/6 kegs
Made with only six ingredients. Malted 2-row barley, palisade hops, orange blossom honey, White Labs California Ale Yeast, apricots and San Diego carbon filtered tap water. Low bitterness is balanced by tart apricots with a sweet but not cloying finish. Barmy Ale can be aged up to eight years with a strong honey wine character emerging if cellared. Be careful not to be the barmiest of them all.
Homework Series #6 1/6, ½ kegs and 22oz
Dark black with ruby red highlights, this Robust Porter is rich and complex. A blend of UK malts, chocolate rye and Belgian candi sugar provide a sweet chocolate, yet rich earthy quality. Malt forward with an aroma full of roasted malts, toffee and dark fruit, this National Homebrew Competition medal-winner is a great dessert beer or to pair with hearty foods.
The Commodore ½, 1/6 kegs and 6 packs
The Commodore came out of our search for a medium-bodied American Stout. The recipe began at our R&D pilot brewery, but quickly became a favorite of our crew. Strong flavors of roast coffee and bittersweet chocolate balance with light citrusy hop aromas, highlighted by a crisp, bitter finish. One sip of this gold medal-winning stout will have you ready to take command of your own fleet.

CISCO
Winter Shredder 1/6, ½ kegs and 6 packs
Gnar-Gnar Lumpkin, the shreddingist snowman this side of Nantucket Sound, likes nothing better than catching a wave on his board…a Cisco wave that is, cold, fresh, and wicked cool! Get mad shacked with the Shredder and have yourself a merry little winter.

CRAFT ARTISAN MEAD
Pollen Nation Blackberry Honey Mead 500ml
Pollinator is a dry hopped (cascades) spiced blackberry hydromel. Pistils of Pollinator (click here to learn about Crafted Pistils) are crafted in honor of the industrious honey bees. Responsible for over one-third of the world’s food supply they have worked thanklessly through the ages. Threatened today by Colony Collapse Disorder and other man-made threats, the weight of the world is getting a little heavier for the honey bee. Raise a glass to the Pollinator and click here for details on how you can help.
Pollen Nation Blackberry Honey Chipotle Mead 500ml
We’ve taken our gold medal winning Pollen-Nation and infused it with something special. This dry-hopped blackberry mead with saigon cinnamon is perfectly balanced with subtle heat from chipotle peppers. Once only available at festivals and in our taproom, Chipotle Pollen-Nation is now coming to the masses.

DOGFISH HEAD
Fort 1/6 kegs and 12oz
An ale brewed with a ridiculous amount of raspberry juice. Fort has a Belgian-style base, then we follow a similar fermentation process to the one we use on beers like 120 Minute IPA and World Wide Stout. Fort is an excellent candidate for cellaring. Grab a few bottles, enjoy one now and lay the others down for a few years. Want to know when the Fort you find was bottled? Check the ‘Bottled On’ date on the neck of each bottle.

DOMINION/FORDHAM
Baltic Porter 6 packs
Baltic Porter tastes of licorice, toffee, and chocolate. The use of Pilsner, Crystal, Rye, and Dark Specialty malts provides the beer with a full body.

GREAT DIVIDE
21st Anniversary 25oz
This American sour is a celebration of 21 years of brewing with Bold Character. This commemorative release opens up with bright, tart, kiwi and citrus notes before mellowing out with a hint of oak and subtle white wine-like character. Soured with lactobacillus and brettanomyces and aged for 9 months in wine barrels, 21st Anniversary is notably complex while retaining a delicate approachability.

HOPPIN FROG
Barrel Aged Boris Stout 22oz
Made from our B.O.R.I.S. Imperial Stout, that was rated one of the World’s 50 Best Beers, and won the Gold Medal at the GABF in 2008. BARREL-AGED B.O.R.I.S. has picked up rich characters of vanilla, dark fruit, oak, and spice. It’s unbelievably complex and savory.
B.O.R.I.S Stout 22oz
This Bodacious Oatmeal Russian Imperial Stout will crush you like no other! This is the grand-daddy of all stout styles, with an intensely deep roasted and full bodied flavor. A robust hop character adds a refreshing balance.
Silk Porter 22oz
Dark, robust and silky-smooth, with many flavors of roasted, toasted and caramel malts. Porter is an old-world beer style, so popular that it helped start the industrial revolution. Taste the history.

LAGUNITAS
Brown Shugga ½ kegs and 6 packs
We believe this Special Ale is Something Unique. Feeding Brown Cane Sugar to otherwise Cultured Brewery Yeast is a’kin to feeding Raw Shark to your Gerbil. It is unlikely to ever occur in nature without Human Intervention. And it looks weird besides. But it’s happened and now it’s too Late.

LANCASTER
ShooFly 1/6 kegs and 4 packs
This brew is loaded with eight different malts and grains and, like shoo fly pie, a generous measure of Lancaster County blackstrap molasses. Malt forward and lightly hopped, this deep, dark brew has a medium/full body, subtle smoky sweetness and hint of vanilla on the finish.

MAINE BEER
Peeper 16oz
We wanted to find a better way. We wanted to do things right. We wanted a delicious beer you could drink all day. And the frigid Maine winter wasn’t going to keep us out of our garage until we had all three. We first had the idea for Peeper in 2006, and officially released it in 2009. This American ale is dry, clean and well balanced with a generous dose of American hops. While we love all our beers, Peeper will always be our firstborn.
Zoe 16oz
David’s daughter, Zoe, is the happy soul who inspired this American amber ale. Zoe was born in the Year of the Monkey, and likewise her namesake beer does not sit still on your palate with its complex malt blend that delivers hints of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit, plus pine and citrus notes that come from copious amounts of American hops. It’s a happy, hoppy beer!

MANATAWNEY STILL WORKS
Hidden River Barrel Rested Gin 750ml
Manatawny Still Works’ Hidden River Gin is as mysteriously complex as the winding waters from where it’s carefully distilled. Unexpected twists of vanilla, caramel and spice tame juniper into a mellow favorite as the oak barrel’s transformative interior creates a complex and compelling spirit. Straight off, Gin drinkers will notice a complexity in Hidden River and Whiskey and Scotch drinkers will enjoy Hidden River Barrell Rested Gin’s nuanced flavor and mellow and smooth finish. Light amber in color, Manatawny Still Works’ aged Gin delivers the perfect amount of sweetness and warmth when sipped neat with underlying juniper commingling with hints of oak and Whiskey.

OOLA
Aloo Vodka 750ml
Citrus Vodka 750ml
Rosemary Vodka 750ml
Chili Pepper Vodka 750ml
Gin 750ml
Barrel Aged Gin 750ml
Vodka 1L

HOP CONCEPT
Tropical and Juicy ½, 1/6 kegs and 22oz
INDIA PALE ALE Brewed with Grapefruit Juice
Aromas of floral citrus and mango dominate this release. While the flavor leads with a burst of bright papaya, pineapple and tangerine, and finishes with hints of spice from the hops and a clean, sweet malt undertone.

SLY FOX
Christmas Ale ½, 1/6 and 6 pack cans
This malty, full-bodied red ale is made with traditional mulling spices: Ginger, Clove, All Spice, Cinnamon & Nutmeg. If this one doesn’t get you into the Christmas spirit, you truly are a Scrooge.

SCHLAFLY
11th Labor 1/6 kegs
This is The Eleventh Labor and it is a Berliner Weiss brewed with apricots. Named after story of Hercules stealing apricots from Zeus, this beer will be packaged in 750ml bottles and the beer will labor in at 4.2%-AbV.
Oatmeal Stout 50L and 6 packs
Our Oatmeal Stout is a classic British-style stout brewed with flaked oatmeal and roasted barley. Freshly-roasted coffee beans, cocoa and touches of raisin and dried fruit dominate the aroma of this super dark ale. The richness of the grain blend is balanced by the nutty character of the roasted malt, the creaminess from the oatmeal flakes and a dose of hops.
Christmas Ale 1/6, ½ kegs and 6 packs
Our Christmas Ale is a warming winter ale that blends the spices of the season with sweet caramel malt. Orange peel, juniper berries, ginger root, cardamom and cloves are added for spiciness. We use honey in the fermentation process, which raises the ABV without producing too much heat from the alcohol content.
Dry Hopped APA 6 packs
Our Dry Hopped American Pale Ale (APA) is charged with American hops to create a bold, aromatic ale. Assertive hop flavor joins the pine/citrus aroma characteristic of American hops to balance the full body provided by North American malts. After fermentation, the beer circulates through a bed of Cascade and Chinook hops, boosting the distinctive hop aroma of this satisfying ale.

STONE
4 Hand / Bale Breaker/ Stone Sorry Not Sorry IPA ½, 1/6 and 22oz
Puréed peaches upped the fruit factor, while experimental hops HBC 342 and HBC 344 introduced notes of stone fruit, tropical fruit, berries and citrus to this IPA. Yes, we made another IPA. We concede it’s not surprising, but we are who we are: an unapologetic band of hopheads psyched to explore the ever-expanding IPA universe.
Bastard Box 4 packs 22oz – Arrogant Bastard, Oaked Arrogant Bastard*, Double Bastard and Depth Charged Double Bastard8. *Only available in the Bastard Box

TERRAPIN
Wake-N-Bake 1/6 kegs and 4 packs
Black as night, this coffee stout is thick, rich and full of real coffee flavor. Brewed with a special blend of beans from all over the world developed and roasted specifically for Terrapin by our friends at Jittery Joe’s Coffee right here in Athens, GA. This unique blend of coffee produces a robust and flavorful beer that will leave you asking “Why not Beer?” for breakfast!
So Fresh, So Green Green 1/6 kegs and 19.2oz Cans
We brew So Fresh & So Green, Green to celebrate the glorious hop! Hops are essentially the spice of beer, adding zest and complexity, bringing the beer to life. We want to show beer lovers the impressive range of flavors and aromas that hops can impart to a beer, which is one reason we do this one as a single-hop brew and change it up every year. 2015: Equinox hops!
