KENTUCKY
VANILLA CREAM 4/6 packs, 1/2, & 1/6 kegs
Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale is our take on a classic American style of beer. We took a cold-conditioned cream ale, brewed with a hint of flaked corn and bourbon vanilla beans, and aged it in freshly decanted bourbon barrels for a minimum of two months. Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale’s medium body and 5.5% ABV make it the perfect barrel-aged beer for an all-day event. ABV: 5.5%

MAINE BEER
LUNCH 1/6 kegs
There’s a whale that’s swum off the coast of Maine since 1982. One day, something took a bite out of her fin, which is how she got the name Lunch. You have to admire her persistence, so we named our IPA for her. Intense hop flavors and tropical, citrus fruit and pine aromas dominate the flavor profile, balanced by subtle malt sweetness. Because only big, memorable flavor would serve for Lunch. ABV: 7.0%

PEEPER 12/16 & 1/6 kegs
We wanted to find a better way. We wanted to do things right. We wanted a delicious beer you could drink all day. And the frigid Maine winter wasn’t going to keep us out of our garage until we had all three. We first had the idea for Peeper in 2006, and officially released it in 2009. This American ale is dry, clean and well balanced with a generous dose of American hops. While we love all our beers, Peeper will always be our firstborn. ABV: 5.5%

ZOE 12/16
David’s daughter, Zoe, is the happy soul who inspired this American amber ale. Zoe was born in the Year of the Monkey, and likewise her namesake beer does not sit still on your palate with its complex malt blend that delivers hints of dark raisin, chocolate and biscuit, plus pine and citrus notes that come from copious amounts of American hops. It’s a happy, hoppy beer! ABV: 7.2%

ANOTHER ONE 12/16
Sometimes when we’re brainstorming, another cold one helps the ideas flow. Like the time we said, “Hey, let’s take this awesome hop blend and switch up the malts.” That insight explains the goodness that is Another One, the lighter side of Weez (both beers use a nearly identical kettle and dry hopping schedule). An intensely hoppy American IPA with a clean malt palate, it leaves little but hoppy resins on the tongue; a dry, crisp finish; and a sense that anything’s possible. ABV: 7.0%

NESHAMINY CREEK
SHAPE OF HOPS TO COME 6/4/16C, 1/2, & 1/6 kegs
“Can I scream….” for more hops? You sure can. Two row American barley jammed packed with as much Apollo, Newport, Simcoe, Topaz, and Citra hops we could get our hands on, The Shape of Hops to Come is an 8.5% ABV American-styled imperial IPA hopped with Apollo, Newport, Simcoe, Topaz, and Citra hops that’s got a ton of bitterness, along with juicy, dank resiny pine-like, and citrus forward hop character that is worthy of it’s name. Dry hopped for two weeks this hop bomb has as much hop power we can muster! ABV: 8.5%

OSKAR BLUES
HOTBOX COFFEE IPA 6/4C & 1/6 kegs
An odd couple can make for some of the most incredibly unique tastiness. Take Hotbox Coffee IPA (7.2% ABV, 70 IBUs) for example – a piney, citrus, mango, Simcoe-hopped IPA and an infusion of cold brew extract made with Hotbox Roasters’ Ethiopian beans poppin’ with creamy blueberry and cacao notes.

PINELANDS
EVAN JOHN PORTER 1/6 kegs
Smooth and complex Porter infused with whole vanilla beans. ABV: 5.3%

RIVER HORSE
RASPBERRY TRIPEL 4/6 packs, ½, & 1/6 kegs
Year after year, the fan favorite at our cask festival is always our Tripel Horse Belgian Style Ale with raspberries. So we figured why not run with it! We’ve added 14 pounds of raspberries per barrel to our original Tripel Horse recipe and bottled it for you to enjoy at home. The label may be loud – but the raspberry is perfectly balanced in this smooth Belgian style beer. ABV:

SMUTTYNOSE
BLACKBERRY SHORT WEISSE 4/6C & 1/6 kegs
Blackberry Short Weisse is the fourth entry in Smuttynose’s canned Short Weisse series (and the first of the Wild Card entries) in March, 2017. The clean, tart acidity of our lactic fermentation process contributes massive refreshment to beer drinkers. Aging the beer on blackberries adds a delicious flavor nuance that’s pure berry deliciousness. The lightweight can package means you can take this fruity refreshment anywhere or just keep a few on hand for spring yard work. Smuttynose Short Weisse beers are made with a time consuming two-part fermentation process that happens in both the brewhouse and the fermenter. The first stage takes place in the kettle with a dose of our house lactobacillus, a bacteria that’s a key component in making yogurt and sour cream. The second phase takes place in the fermenter with a German-style hefeweizen yeast. This time consuming process means we can only make limited amounts of Short Weisse beers. Fortune favors the bold – get yours soon! ABV: 5.2%

STONE
TANGERINE EXPRESS ½ kegs
This ain’t no just-add-juice approach. This one is for adults. We use bountiful whole tangerine purée, which brings pithy, crisp bitterness to the citrus flavor. In addition to the complexities of the tangerine — the likes of which you can only get by using the whole fruit — we judiciously employ just a hint of whole pineapple for a backnote (you’d likely not even pick it out of the mix if we didn’t tell you it was there). We’re not looking for a sweet concoction to appease the “I want my beer to taste like fruit juice” crowd. This is Stone. We like our IPAs to taste like IPAs. Big, bold and not for kids. ABV: 6.7%

TWO ROAD
ROAD JAM 4/6 packs, ½, & 1/6 kegs
A wheat ale fermented with real red and black raspberries and accented with fresh lemongrass. It has a stunning red color and mouth-watering berry aroma. Fruity and refreshingly dry. ABV: 5.0%

TWO ROAD
BEER BUS 2/12C
The Two Roads’ “Beer Bus” 12-pack features 3 cans of each of 4 great styles, including a rotating seasonal — all onboard a unique package that is great for displays and guaranteed to get attention!
Honeyspot Road, No limits, Ol’ Factory, & Road Jam.
