Brasserie Dupont Avec Les Bons Voeux-Saison 9.5%
Les Bons Voeux means best wishes, which is what Brasserie Dupont sends with this very special saison ale brewed for the holidays. Redolently aromatic, rich and velvety. Rich gold color, fragrant (lemony with hints of pepper, banana and clove), as all the beers of Dupont are with a full,deep malt richness that lingers on your tongue for what seems the whole holiday season. Considered by some the finest offering from this unparalleled

Robust dark lager inspired by Porters from around the Baltic Sea region. This beer is luxuriously round with a mild bitterness. The malts contribute flavors of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. The use of cherry-wood smoked malt provides a subtle hint of smoke. Aged in Bourbon and Brandy barrels

Traditional Duchesse de Bourgogne with Belgian cherries and chocolate essence added during the maturation process in oak casks (foeders). 20 kg of whole Belgian cherries are used in the production of each 100 liters of Chocolate Duchesse Cherry.

Boulevard 30th Anniversary – Cuvee 12.5%
Inspired by John’s desire to “do something different,” our brewers created this elegant, complex blend of barrel-aged beers to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Thank you to our fans for being a part of it all – cheers to 30 years!
The Bruery 12 Drummers Drumming – Strong Ale 12%
Twelve years in the making, 12 Drummers Drumming is the final release in our 12 Beers of Christmas series.
Traditionally, these beers have been brewed with a Belgian flair, and this celebratory blend combines our bourbon barrel-aged anniversary ale and of course, a Belgian-style Quadrupel. Boisterous notes of toffee, dark fruit, caramel, and bourbon bring this 12-year journey to an extraordinary close.
Central State Coconut Nephilim -Imperial Stout 11.5%
This giant of a stout is as dark as the night. Infused with hundreds of pounds of coconut to soften its edges while leaving it no less aggressive in flavor.
St Bernardus Christmas Ale-Quadrupel 10%
This specialty beer is characterized by its deep dark color, with a creamy, thick head and a full, almost velvety taste with a fruity nose. Brewed annually for the holiday season, the long winter nights are perfect moments to savor this ale with or without friends and to enjoy its unique, complex taste.
Captain Lawrence Golden Delicious – American Strong Ale 11%
There’s nothing quite likes Mom’s apple pie? But I am willing to bet this beer is pretty darn close. An American Tripel, dry-hoped with Amarillo hops and aged in Apple Brandy barrels from one of this country’s oldest distilleries. The tropical aroma of the hops and the delicate apple aroma from the barrels are a perfect match. Straight from the Captain’s cellar to yours, we hope you enjoy
Untitled Art Chocolate Macaroon – Dessert Stout 12%
Brewed in collaboration with our good friends at Cerebral Brewing. This Chocolate Macaroon Imperial Stout was brewed with Chocolate, Coconut, Marshmallows, and Vanilla. Cheers!
Scotch Silly Pinot Noir Barrel Aged-Wee Heavy 10%
Each year Brasserie de Silly takes their famous Scotch Silly brand and ages it a different style barrel. 2018 features Scotch silly that has been aged in Chardonnay barrels. This deep, dark colored scotch ale is a perfect blend of caramelized malt and candied sugar from the mother beer. The aroma coming from the Chardonnay barrel produces a unique yet subtle flavor.
DeuS Brut des Flandres-Champagne Beer 11.5%
Refreshing as an aperitif. And just as full of flavour and rich in aroma as a beer from heaven. That’s DeuS. A magnificent symbiosis of brewing a beer and creating a sparkling wine. Ideal for delighting your guests sometimes as an unusual choice with the before-dinner nibbles and amuse-gueules. And perfect if you have something to celebrate. DeuS – truly the sparkling divine based on barley.
