maine - their curieux (belgian inspired tripel aged in bourbon barrels) with maine cold pressed coffee.
maine - rob tod's interpretation of a traditional belgian wheat beer, allagash white is brewed with a generous portion of wheat and a special blend of spices, this beer is light and slightly cloudy in appearance, with a spicy aroma. overall, it is a beer that is very drinkable and smooth any time of the year.
netherlands - excellent, super-dry saison. fruity aromas from the yeast.
belgium - a triple in style. the young drinkers just love the pink elephant logo
fire & flame. another great beer from menno. this brewery is inside of a circa 1600 windmill. american style ipa with aggressive hopping,
oregon - multi-award winning porter from this amazing brewery. roasty, chocolate notes in the body. crisp, bitter finish. yummy!
released each year in march, a strong ipa brewed with luscious apricots, finished with whole leaf willamette and cascade hops. fruity, citrusy, cedar, thirst-quenching. a "fruit beer for hop heads " (ale street news)
2012 vintage. this super saison ages well. arguably the best holiday ale made in belgium. a bit of citrus in the finish. lots of dried fruit in the taste. medium to full body. hops in taste & finish. such a great balance. dry finish.
germany - the smoked malt componet really shines through, although i don't get much of the "peated" malt aroma or flavor. lower than anticipated phenols. notes of bacon dipped in bittersweet chocolate.
belgium - strong dark ale with notes of caramel & coffee. the oak aging adds a bit of vanilla from the wood.
portland , oregon - certainly a west-coast ipa in character. deep gold/copper color. medium body. aromas of passion fruit and pine cones. dry hopped. easy to drink
new zealand - belgian inspired abbey tripel. notes of clove and aromatic spices.
belgium - that's right, our own private label brewed for us by the family-owned van steenberge brewery, just outside ghent, belgium. medium body, red color, somewhat fruity nose, malt flavor with a slight lactic taste. great stuff! a real thirst quencher and palate cleanser.
belgium - this is a staff favorite in bottle. this beer is aged 18 months in oak barrels, which provides the sour note this beer exhibits. kegs of this are a real rariety. both refreshing and bracing.
california - perhaps my favorite west coast ipa. solid hop aromas and finish backed up by the perfect balance of malt.
california - blonde ale influenced by duvel. great aromas of banana and pear. medium body with flavors of pale roasted malt and spice from the hops. hops in the finish give it a crisp, dry finish.
california - their harvest ale made with whole cone hops. this year the used yakima experimental hop 291. can't wait to taste this.
belgium - can you say malt? i thought you could. quadrupel. full body. raisins, chocolate, dates and all sorts of wonderful flavors out of this huge beer. this rocks!
adamstown, pa - light, crisp & refreshing. it's tastes like a lager, but it's an ale. a bit of fruitiness and a tad of hop bitterness.
belgium - traditional belgian tripel that is a tad drier in the finish than is chimay. this is keith's, one of our chefs, favorite beer.
belgium - rich, spicy blonde triple, dry herbaceous finish. brewed on the grounds of a trappist monastary (in the ardennes mtns). the hoppiest of their three offerings. since 1862 the cistercian trappist monks of chimay have been developing the production of trappist beers (and cheeses!).
netherlands - menno really combines old world tradition with new american styles. this is one of his takes of a double ipa. brewed with challenger & saaz hops, but dry hopped with amarillo. lots of citrus & pine aromas. almost resin(y) finish.

louisville, kentucky - the didn't have anything like this when i was stationed at fort knox in the early 1970's. great bourbon & crappy beer was the way of the day. these boys have stepped up the game in that town. this is a collaboration with mikkel. a czech-style pilsner with us & saaz hops w/blood orange juice added.
louisville, kentucky - another offering from against the grain (atg). this is an english-style barleywine ale which was aged in an angel's envy bourbon barrel. huge, viscous malt bomb.
