Years ago Jack went looking for the elusive Coppertail sea monster in the waters of Tampa Bay. He only caught a brief glimpse, but the true find of the expedition was Coppertail Brewing Company Free Dive IPA. This IPA finishes a little dry, but is packed with flavor from Citra, Simcoe, Chinook and Centennial Hops. Drink it now as our Beer of the week!

Jack’s Picks of the Week: 12/04/2019-12/11/2019

Jaffurs Grenache 2016
California – Santa Barbra County

Winemaker NotesThe 2016 Grenache carries on our tradition of producing focused, intriguing Grenaches that taste great upon release, but also evolve with age. Ruby red in color and medium weight, with aromatics of raspberry, cherry-cola, bramble, plum and dried flowers.  Partial stem inclusion through the fermentation provides texture and spice. Aged in used barrels for 10 months, this wine highlights the purity of the Grenache grape, and is a great companion with a wide range of foods.

Wine Enthusiast 91 Points: Rarely is Grenache the best grape to lay down in the cellar, but this bottling has the bones and pedigree to qualify. Plump berry, cherry and red-currant fruits have a floral edge on the nose, while the palate is very grippy with tannins that hold the sumac and tart cherry flavors tightly. Drink 2020–2026.

 

Wine Spectator 91 Points: Sleek and spirited, with floral raspberry and spiced cinnamon aromas and elegantly layered cherry and smoky, sweet anise flavors. Drink now through 2023. 500 cases made.

 

Jeb Dunnuck 90 points: The 2016 Grenache Santa Barbara County from this team (100% Grenache aged in used barrels) offers a ripe, upfront, charming style. Bing cherries, raspberries, ground herbs, and hints of pepper all flow to a medium-bodied, silky, elegant wine that will keep for a good 6-8 years. Maturity 2018-2024.

The Featured Beers

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
Brewery.

Les Trois Mousquetaires Porter Baltique Editions Special (Bourbon & Brandy) – Barrel Aged Baltic Porter 10.5%
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

Duchesse de Bourgogne Chocolate Cherry-Flemish Sour 6.8%
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.

Pohjala Karneval – Imperial Stout 10.9%
An Imperial Dessert Stout with fresh flavors from raspberries, passion fruit and toasted coconuts. Brewed in collaboration with Mother Kelly’s London.

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.

Typically dry hopped sours showcase a nice balance of refreshing tartness, and the flavor profile of whatever hop was used (ie citrus notes when citra hops are used). Rarely does the bitter quality from the alpha acids get noticed in the beer. That is why Collective Arts dry-hopped raspberry sour surprised Jack so much. Raspberry up front, but a nice earthy bitterness at the end. That is why it is the beer of the week.
