Founders Azacca IPA and Imperial Stout

Brand new for 2016 we have the fantastic Azacca IPA from Founders Brewing Co. The Azacca hop is known for its intense tropical fruit notes and for its mango and citrus aromas. The brewers at Founders added a touch of caramel malts to balance out these new American hops and create a smooth American-style IPA . Azacca weighs in at 7.0% ABV and 70 IBUs. Check out the label when you see it on the shelf, it symbolizes Azacca, the god of agriculture. He’s watching over the field where the ingredients are grown.


Also available for the season is the highly anticipated Imperial Stout. This one has become a NJ favorite and we can’t wait to crack open a bottle of it this year! It’s rated 100 on RateBeer and it’s 10.5%ABV. Imperial Stout is brewed with ten varieties of malted barley, it’s smooth as silk, yet complex and rich in body. Serve this guy at cellar temperature. Put another log on the fire, sit back and enjoy the friendship of this ultimate winter warmer.
