New Releases — 21 April 2017

BALLAST POINT
SEA ROSE ½ & 1/6 kegs
A crisp wheat ale with a tart cherry twist.
Our Sea Rose tart cherry wheat ale is a fresh take on fruit beers. Originally conceived during an employee-led R&D brew, it’s one of our most imaginative recipes yet. The American wheat style is light and clean, while fresh cherry juice adds a soft coral color and fruity nose that gives way to a dry, slightly tart finish. It’s approachable, yet unexpected—exactly what we love to brew. ABV: 4.0%

SCULPIN UNFILTERED 6 packs, ½, & 1/6 kegs
Our Unfiltered Sculpin IPA packs extra hops into every sip, enhancing the classic Sculpin notes of fresh apricot, peach, mango and lemon with a slight haze and less bitterness. Freshness is key to every beer, but especially true for this extra-hopped IPA—store cold and drink soon. ABV: 7.0%

 

CIGAR CITY
FLORIDA CRACKER 4/6C, ½ & 1/6 kegs
The Cracker Cowboys of Florida were colonial-era settlers, often of Scots-Irish descent, who arrived in Florida when Spain traded their territory of La Florida to the English. The term Cracker in Florida usage relates to the whip these “cow hunters” used to herd cattle in Florida’s Palmetto Prairies. Called Quaqueros by the Spanish, these hardy and hard working Cracker Cowboys helped to shape the history of Florida, the nation’s oldest cattle raising state. We brew Florida Cracker White Ale with unmalted wheat, orange peel and coriander and then ferment it with a Belgian yeast strain to give it a spicy and dry finish. Perfect for a warm day on the Palmetto Prairie. ABV: 5.5%

JAI ALAI
Jai Alai, a game native to the Basque region of Spain, is played on a court called a fronton. Jai Alai players attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt whilst the ball travels at speeds up to 188mph! Proving they have a sense of humor the Spanish dubbed this game, with its ball traveling at racecar speeds, “the merry game.” Tampa was once home to a bustling Jai Alai fronton but sadly all that remains of Jai Alai in the Tampa Bay area is this India Pale Ale that we brew in tribute to the merry game. The India Pale Ale style of beer has its roots in the ales sent from England to thirsty British troops in India during the 18th century. Pair Jai Alai India Pale Ale with beef empanadas, deviled crabs and other spicy dishes. ABV: 7.5%

 

DEMENTED
VILA 1/6 kegs
As the warm weather starts to arrive, our palates start craving a light refreshing drink. Our Belgian Wit blossoms classic esters & lemony flavors rounding out a unique experience. Enjoy this beer with poultry, fish, and when you need to reward yourself.

LITHA 1/6 kegs
An amazingly light American Wheat Ale, Litha blends barley and wheat malts together with loads of Citra hops to make a beer the color of sunshine that’s sure to bring you somewhere tropical. A slight bitterness gives way to wave after wave of pineapple, grapefruit and passionfruit flavors and aromas. Named after the celebration of the summer solstice in the Wiccan calendar, this beer is exactly that.. a brew to honor the sun. ABV: 5.8%

 

DOGFISH HEAD
ROMANTIC CHEMISTRY 6 packs, ½, & 1/6 kegs
What you have here is a serious India Pale Ale shacking up and hunkering down with mango and apricots. At the same time! Romantic Chemistry is brewed with an intermingling of mangos, apricots and ginger, and then dry-hopped with three varieties of hops to deliver a tropical fruit aroma and a hop-forward finish. ABV: 7.2%

 

DOWNEAST CIDER
SUMMER BLEND 4 packs, ½, & 1/6 kegs
SUMMER BLEND IS MADE SPECIFICALLY FOR THE BEACH, GOLF BAG, LAWNMOWER, AND DUGOUT.
Hey, it gets hot around here. maybe not as oppressive as some other places, but hot enough to make us crave something a little lighter, a little crisper, and a little quaffable. That’s where SB comes in – a 4.5% ABV unfiltered apple cider with the tart and tang of lemon and ginger. ABV: 4.5%

VARIETY 2/9C
VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE…THAT AND A LITTLE DOOBSTER EVERY NOW AND THEN
passion, dedication, desire, purity, essence, love. cast within the sacred apple temple of macintosh, deep in the foothills of maine lies a load of meaningless poetic product descriptions. the seasonal variety is simply a great way to try a few of our ciders with one purchase: 3 original, 3 cranberry, and 3 seasonal selections: maple, summer, pumpkin, or winter – depending on the time of year.

 

EPIC BREWING
TART N’ JUICE 4/6C
We’ve combined the clean, puckering tartness of kettle souring with an abundance of juicy, citrus-driven hops to create a beer that’s the best of both worlds – Tart n’ Juicy Sour® IPA.

SON OF A BAPTIST 4/6C
Son of a Baptist is an 8% ABV imperial stout. It is not barrel aged like its father, Big Bad Baptist; instead its flavor profile was designed to highlight the complex and often unique flavors of small batch coffees. Instead of sourcing a coffee that would play well in a beer we sought out creative and innovative roasters, then asked them which beans they’re passionate about. Each resulting release of Son of a Baptist is widely different depending on the coffee selected. Some are fruity and sweet with notes of jam and chocolate, others are rich and earthy with a big roasted finish. Each limited release will return to the Roaster’s home market where the beer and the coffee can be sampled side by side.

ESCAPE TO COLORADO IPA 4/6C
One sip and you’ll get the gist. This special hop-forward ale featuring Mosaic and whole leaf Apollo is both fruity and dank. We hope you enjoy our hoppy twist on the taste of freedom. ABV: 6.2%

BRAINLESS RASPBERRIES 4/6C
Lil’ Brainless® Raspberries is an easy drinking canned version of our big, bold 22 oz. bottle of Brainless® Raspberries, crafted especially for those who seek bright, fresh, and real raspberry flavors in a convenient size. We brew exclusively with natural raspberry puree, which give this beer its unique pink color as well as hints of raspberry bubble-gum, sweet fruit jam, and a pleasant dryness that makes this beer perfect for easy going affairs, indoors or out.

 

FOUNDERS
RUBEUS ¼ kegs
Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries, Rubaeus is Founders’ way of celebrating the joys of summer year-round. This stunning berry-red masterpiece is the perfect blend of sweet, tart and refreshing. No question about it, this beer is 100% Founders. ABV: 5.7%

PC PILS ½ & 1/4 kegs
Pleasantly crisp, perfectly clean and profoundly crushable, PC Pils is our take on the classic Pilsner style. While Noble hops have been the preferred choice of Pilsner brewers around the world, we went with some of our favorite American varieties. Piney Chinook, pleasantly citrus Cascade and punchy Centennial make this an easy-drinker with floral hop characteristics. Pretty cool, if you ask us. ABV: 5.5%

 

IRONBOUND
SUMMER CIDER 4/6C, ½ & 1/6 kegs
Ironbound infused with Iced Black Tea & Fresh Squeezed Lemons for a bright, sessionable cider perfect for Summer. No added sugar. No added sulfites. Naturally gluten Free. ABV: 4.2%

 

OSKAR BLUES
BEERITO 4/6C & 1/6 kegs
Beerito (4% ABV, 21 IBUs) is a light bodied, amber Mexican lager brewed with premium German and coloRADo sourced craft malts and featuring a crisp accent from noble hops. The mouth feel is incredibly smooth with flavors of walnut, toasted bread, plum, honey and cocoa – 4% ABV doesn’t always come with this kind of character.

 

SMUTTYNOSE
VARIETY 2/12
An assortment of Smuttynose beers in a 12 pack. This variety pack includes, Old Brown Dog, Wunderbar Pils, Finest Kind IPA, and Brewers Choice.

 

ANDECHS
VOLLBIER HELL 20/16 & 50L kegs
A product of traditional multiple mashing, Andechser Vollbier Hell presents a bright straw yellow and clear gleaming look that cannot fail to fascinate
Its head is firm and fine pored. Its aroma is pure and fresh from the cellar, with soft malty accents imbued with floral hoppiness.
Its light and soft body leaves a pleasant, tangy taste in the mouth. The mild sweetness marries well with the velvety bitterness of the hops. It concludes on a rounded, harmonious note.

Andechser Vollbier Hell is therefore a classical Bavarian Vollbier (11.5% original extract and 4.8% alcohol by volume).

 

SIXPOINT
PUFF 6/4C
magine puffing away on hops for days, then just chillin’ as the party starts winding down.
But wait, a final burst of energy; one last dose in a tank of dry hops. A special hop bouquet for the afterparty.
If you love Resin, try tasting it straight from the tanks. That’s PUFF – a hazy, unfiltered pour with an extra dose of dry hops… a new blend devised just for Puff.
We decided to capture our own puffy, cloudy brew in a limited release can. First puff says it all – this ish is Keller. Breathe deep and put your head in the clouds… it’s Mad Science. ABV: 9.8%

 

STONE & LOST ABBEY COLLABORATION
STICKS N’ STONES 6/1.5L
Before the meaning of the name is revealed for that “ah-ha” moment, we must elaborate on the significance of the collaboration. Three key Stone brewers gathered together with long-time friend and Lost Abbey brewmaster Tomme Arthur in Berlin. There they collaborated on a beer representative of our presence in Germany and the craft beer crusade we have been on and never lost sight of despite all of the words of criticism. Too aggressive, too many hops, too expensive, too impossible to break into centuries of German tradition…all of that was just words. It didn’t break us. And here we are, two decades later with a foothold in Berlin and our fingertips on the international craft beer moment. In honor of that we brewed a dark imperial lager with a German yeast strain and partially aged it with wooden chips “sticks” in stone granite barrels. Ah-ha. ABV: 8.3%

 

STONE & MAINE COLLABORATION
DAYSLAYER ½ & 1/6 kegs
Headbanging is to dance what metal is to music. Which is to say, the elbow-flinging, tattooed, wild-eyed problem child to the stuff your grandparents listened to. Most likely, your grandparents also drank some form of neutered light corn/rice-infused facsimile of a lager (aka AAL) that was the liquid equivalent of elevator music (not exactly their fault, as they didn’t have the choices that you do). And since you’ve chosen not to listen to their music, then you deserve a Lager fit for the lords of metal, not some bubble gum pop-inspired, watered-down, mass-produced version.
We’ve taken the classic lager recipe and asked Maine and our own Stone brewers to wail, riff, rage, create and destroy until this rock-worthy India Pale Style Lager resulted. Heavily hopped and boldly malted, the encore flavor for DaySlayer is a crisp finish that is deceptively easy to put away and decidedly hard to put down. It’s “just noise and yelling” to some, but poetry to us. ABV: 7.5%

 

TWO ROADS
NO LIMIT HEFEWEIZEN 6/4C, ½, 1/6 kegs
Brewmaster Phil Markowski has taken a “bahn” less traveled to create our version of the classic Bavarian wheat brew –perfect for the warming temperatures. Beautifully cloudy with a generous head of foam, a wonderful fruit aroma and a dry finish, our Hefeweizen is a refreshing version of the original; with just a little bit more of everything. ABV: 5.0%

 

WEYERBACHER
WIT 6 packs, ½, & 1/6 kegs
Wit, 4.6% ABV, is a crisp and hazy Belgian-style Wit.
Coriander, orange peel, grains of paradise and star anise give a light spiciness to the aroma. This refreshingly crisp wheat ale finishes with just a hint of tartness. Wit is ready to be enjoyed throughout spring and early summer!

FINALLY LEGAL 4 packs & 1/6 kegs
Finally Legal is a big stout brewed with Munich malts, smoked malts, cocoa nibs, cocoa powder and vanilla. Rolling in at 13.5% ABV, Finally Legal has rich chocolate flavor with hints of vanilla and a touch of smoky bacon. As if that’s not enough, we blended this tasty brew with its bourbon barrel aged counterpart before packaging it for your enjoyment. ABV: 13.5%
