True to its Boontling moniker, “Huge Arker” is a massive force of nature that detonates on your tongue. After primary fermentation, the beer is aged in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels until it fully matures. The deep mahogany color is evocative of the opulence to follow. Dark luscious aromas of burnished oak mingle with candy sugar, bourbon and hearth-baked bread. The luxurious flavors redolent of honey and molasses are intertwined with the richness of dark chocolate and the ardent warmth of alcohol, underpinned with hints of coffee, vanilla and dark fruits.
Avogadro Honey Mead – Good Road Ciderworks (7.8% ABV)
A semi-sweet mead crafted from honey sourced from the blossoms of the avocado. Medium bodied and smooth. Enjoy an aroma that layers light caramel notes with a bit of browned butter followed by hints of dried apricot. The flavor mimics the aroma, but with more emphasis on the apricot. This mead is a credible alternative to a tawny port; very complex to be only slightly out of the hydromel range and is gorgeous in the glass. Enjoy!
Ballast Point – Sea Monster (10% ABV)
A beast of an imperial stout. Our Sea Monster Imperial Stout explores the darkest reaches of the traditional oatmeal stout. This bold, rich brew first lures you in with roasted coffee notes, then grabs hold with hints of bittersweet chocolate and currant. Backed with a perfect hop balance, you’ll soon discover this is one monster of mythic proportions.
Breakside – Mic Drop IPA (8.4% ABV)
This is a draft-only IPAs inspired by the dry, dank hoppy beers of Southern California. Originally designed for the 2015 Saraveza Double IPA Fest, Mic Drop is a tribute to some of the OG IPAs of the West Coast. It is bright golden in color, aggressive in hop flavor, and higher in alcohol than most "single" IPAs. Hop-wise this beer stays true to the San Diego-style and leans heavily on Simcoe and Amarillo to drive the flavor. They provide notes of grapefruit, candied orange, and strong pine. A dose of Centennial gives the beer some "old school" notes, and we use a heavy hit of Citra late in the boil and in the dry hop to kiss the beer with a bit of newfangled, tropical hop flavor.
Breakside – Wanderlust IPA (6.2% ABV)
Golden IPA made with five different hops. Intense grapefruit and dank notes with a crisp finish.
Bruery Terreux Frucht: Lemon & Cherry (5% ABV)
Welcome to Frucht, our land of fruited Berliner Weisse-style beers. Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from fermentation in one of our twin oak foeder vessels - the largest known to be fabricated in this country. This installment in our Frucht series is the first to feature two fruits (früchte?), with the refreshing combination of lemon zest and tart cherries.
