The Featured Beers
American Solera Eng-Yak (Oklahoma-12%-Barley Wine)
An American style barley wine that has been age for 18 months in Cognac barrels and then bottle conditioned for an additional year.
Forbidden Root Fernetic (Illinois-8.4%): Fernetic was brewed in collaboration with the Branca family as an interpretation of the famous Fernet Branca liqueur. The flavor is deep and brooding, with a strong aromatic character—an absolutely unique experience. Botanicals: rhubarb root, peppermint, saffron, wormwood, angelica, star anise, and 14 others.
Founders DKML (Michigan-14.2%-Malt Liquor)
Here you have what could be the first malt liquor worthy of a glass. Typically a slighted style, we thought we would class it up with a stay in the wood and a healthy dose of dry-hopping. A huge hit of corn gives this one a smooth sweetness while its time spent aging in bourbon barrels will give you reason to share. Be warned: this one’s a pry-off, not a twist-off.
Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA (Delaware-15-20%-Imperial IPA)
Clocking in at 15-20% ABV, 120 Minute IPA is continuously hopped with a copious amount of high-alpha American hops throughout the boil and whirlpool, and then dry-hopped with another pallet of hops. Unfiltered and abundantly hoppy, it’s the Holy Grail for hopheads!
Mikkeller Oud Geuze Boon Lambic-Old Calvados Cask (Belgium-6.4%-Gueuze)
Mikkeller Oude Geuze Boon Lambic is a new unique collaboration betweem Boon and Mikkeller. Blending lambic from one to three years old, this blend is made in the traditional method of spontaneous fermetation in the Senne Valley, Belgium. This special blend has a distinct twist being matured in oak foeders previously used for Calvados.
American Solera Ahoma (Okalahoma-6%-Pale Ale)
A sour American pale ale aged in oak tanks with Brettanomyces.
Jester King & Fantome Del Rey-Texas Edition (Texas-8.8%Farmhouse Ale)
The Texas version of Fantôme Del Rey is a bière de coupage where old, barrel-aged beer is blended with young beer. The older component of the blend was brewed at Jester King in August of 2014 with malted barley, dark candi syrup, ground coriander, and black peppercorns. It was initially fermented in stainless steel with truffle honey, and then racked to oak for extended maturation. We brewed the younger version in November of 2015, and blended the old with the young.
Draai Laag Port Barrel Aged Yodeler (Pennsylavania-13.2%-Barley Wine)
With rich toffee & caramel flavors (and a kick-in-the-pants ABV) this Belgian Barleywine is ALMOST too big for its lederhosen. Lucky for you, we reined it in with heavy ester strains of yeast that add a light, tropical aroma and creamy head. YodelayheeHOO YA! This release was aged for 1 year in tawny port barrels.
Ommegang Bigger and Bretter (New York-7.6%-Biere de Garde)
Bigger and Bretter is a robust, yet beautifully balanced ale. The malt brings flavors of caramel with a touch of honied sweetness. The Brett yeast imparts aromas of cherry pie and cinnamon that develop as the beer spends at least three months maturing in our cellar.
Bell’s Hell Hath No Fury (Michigan-7.7%-Strong Ale)
Originally conceived along the lines of a Belgian Dubbel, Hell Hath No Fury … Ale morphed during development into something entirely different. Brewed with Belgian abbey-style yeast, Hell Hath No Fury … Ale is more akin to a roasty stout, offering warm, roasted notes of coffee & dark chocolate with fruity and clove-like aromas.
Hourglass Giant Giant Dwarf (Florida-12%-Imperial Stout)
Long ago, in a fermenter
right here in Longwood, we brewed a giant Imperial stout and laid it to rest in bourbon
barrels until it was deemed worthy. Then, we brewed a matching batch of that very same
Imperial stout, and blended the two together. The blended stout was then flavored with espresso from Lineage Coffee Roasting, Tahitian vanilla beans, cacao nibs from the Dominican Republic, and maraschino cherries from Italy.
The end result is
our Giant Giant Dwarf,
a ludicrously delicious beer that’s perfect for
watching your radar screen…
