- Samuel Adams Verloren (Gose) Gose is a peculiar yet captivating brew. With a base of an unfiltered wheat ale, it’s vivid and refreshing yet also has a softness to it. The flavor is brought to life by an unexpected touch of salt for a mineral quality, and coriander for a peppery spice.
- Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale(Traditional Ale) This Red Rice Ale was brewed with special red rice which had been cultured in ancient times in Japan. Please enjoy the complex taste and beautiful natural color.
- Dogfish Head Raison d’Etre(Belgian Strong Ale) A deep mahogany ale brewed with beet sugar, green raisins, and Belgian yeast.
- Breckenridge Agave Wheat (Wheat Ale) Agave complements the refreshingly light quality of our wheat and adds a subtle note of flavor that expands this beer’s uplifting taste profile. It is familiar, yet creative.
- G. Schneider & Sohn Hopfen-Weisse (Weizenbock) A hopped up version of the traditional German weizenbock features an extra dose of Hallertau hop.
- Magic Hat Pistil (Dandelion Ale) Pistil is brewed with a combination of dandelion petals, Pale and Acidulated malts, flaked oats, and Apollo and Northern Brewer hops that results in a one-of-a-kind beer with a slightly sour acidity and a smooth malt body.
- Williams Bros. Alba (Traditional Ale) Alba is a triple style ale brewed to a traditional Highland recipe from Scots pine and spruce shoots pickled during early spring. Pure malted barley, is boiled with the young sprigs of pine for several hours then the fresh shoots of the spruce are added for a short infusion before fermentation.
- Flying Dog Wildeman (Saison) This brew is an unfiltered American IPA hopped with Citra and fermented with Saison yeast.
- Schlenkerla Urbock (Rauchbier) A smoked bock beer for Bamberg’s strong beer season. Matured for months in ancient rock-cellars underneath Bamberg and tapped freshly from the oakwood cask. Similar to, but much bigger than the classic Maerzen style.
- Coney Island Sword Swallower (Lager) A stunning spectacle: the delicate balance of 8 hops gracefully thrust into the inner sanctum of 4 luscious malts astonishing in depth, dazzling in mouthfeel. A scintillating brewing performance.
- Williams Bros. Fraoch(Gruit) A light amber ale with floral peaty aroma, full malt character, and a spicy herbal finish – This beer allows you to literally pour 4000 years of Scottish history into a glass. Into the boiling bree of malted barley, sweet gale and flowering heather are added, then after cooling slightly the hot ale is poured into a vat of fresh heather flowers where it infuses for an hour before being fermented.
