BEER OF THE MONTH CLUB
October 2013 – Trick or Treat!
Complete 10 lists – try new beer and get your name immortalized on the wall!
1. Wychwood Hobgoblin (ESB) Hobgoblin is a powerful full-bodied copper red, well-balanced brew. Strong in roasted malt with a moderate hoppy bitterness and slight fruity character that lasts through to the end.
2. Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate (Stout) The gently roasted organic cocoa extract impart a delicious, smooth and creamy character, with inviting deep flavors and a delightful finish – this is a marriage of satisfying stout and luxurious chocolate.
3. Avery White Rascal(Witbier) A truly authentic Belgian style wheat or “white” ale, this Rascal is unfiltered (yup, that’s yeast on the bottom) and cleverly spiced with coriander and Curacao orange peel producing a refreshingly fruity thirst quencher.
4. Lindemans Framboise (Fruit Lambic) Magnificent aroma, delicate palate of raspberries with undertones of fruity acidity; elegant, sparkling clean natural taste.
5. B. Nektar Black Fang (Melomel) The seductive honey, clove, and orange zest penetrate the flood of blackberry in this forbidden libation. You never knew what life was until it runs out in a cold black rush over your tongue.
6. Breckenridge Vanilla Porter (Porter) An ale that has all the chocolate and roasted nut flavor of a classic Porter, with an enigmatic surprise thrown in for good measure, real vanilla bean. Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter–a vanilla kiss in a rich, dark sea.
7. Flying Dog Snake Dog (IPA) More cunning than a snake in the bush…Snake Dog India Pale Ale is a Colorado-style IPA, power hopped with specialty hops from the Pacific Northwest. This is the brewery’s hop monster, and the citrus fruit aroma will hypnotize the senses of the most hardcore of craft drinkers.
8. St Louis Kriek (Fruit Lambic) Tart cherry notes scrape over the tongue while sugar sweetness sinks in. While the two sensations work side by side, this beer’s bold cherry flavors leave room for little else. Light earthy notes emerge in the back, but the traditional lambic flavors are hidden beneath a growing sweetness.
9. Anchor Big Leaf Maple (Amber Ale) A quaffable, well-balanced red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup.
10. Ommegang Scythe and Sickle (Specialty Grain) Scythe & Sickle Harvest Ale is brewed with barley, wheat, oats and rye. Scythe and sickle is a seasonal brew that celebrates the richness of the grain harvest. Brewed with barley, wheat, oats and – in a nod to traditional upstate New York grains – rye, this fine ale is malty and creamy on the palate. The flavors of the grains and earth shine through. Enjoy the refreshment of the season and joys of fine brewing.
11. You Pick Pumpkin from the Pumpkin Patch For the final beer this month you can pick any one of our delicious pumpkin beers!
