New Releases Slider — 18 January 2018

BEAR REPUBLIC

BIG BEAR BLACK STOUT: 4/6 cases

Big Bear is a big, black, stout you can really sink your teeth into. The bold, roasty, caramel malt flavor is balanced by Centennial and Cascade hops. ABV: 8.1%

CAFE RACER 15: 4/6 cases

Café Racer 15™ features aromas of bright citrus and resinous pine from the generous use of Citra, Amarillo, Cascade and Chinook hops which are complimented by a dry malt finish. The result is a high revving Double IPA that is loud and assertive, much like the rebellious street racers who inspired it. Never ride alone. ABV: 9.75%

 

DOGFISH HEAD

ROMANTIC CHEMISTRY: 4/6 cases | 1/6 kegs | 1/2 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. It’s fruity, it’s hoppy, it’s tasty! ABV: 7.2%

LUPU LUAU: 4/6C cases | 1/6 kegs

Sam set out to make a hazy, overly pale beer but the test batches weren’t quite there yet. However, during that process he found out how great coconuts work in an IPA and decided that the new goal was to make an IPA using as much coconut as possible. We started with a combination of Pils malt with flaked barley, rolled oats, and malted and raw wheat to get it all hazy. Then we introduced coconuts three ways by adding toasted coconut, dehydrated coconut water and an experimental hop variety that provides a unique coconut & woody aroma. The result? A lupulin-loaded, coconut-centric ale. Our Lupu-Luau IPA! ABV: 7.3%

BARREL AGED BITCHES BREW: 4/6 cases | 1/6 kegs

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the original release of Bitches Brew, Miles Davis’ 1970 paradigm-shifting landmark fusion breakthrough, we’ve created our own Bitches Brew — a dark beer that’s a fusion of three threads of imperial stout and one thread of honey beer with gesho root. It’s a gustatory analog to Miles’ masterpiece. ABV: 9.0% 

 

DOWNEAST CIDER

DRIER SIDE: HOPPED GRAPEFRUIT: 6/4C cases | 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

Something refreshing to remind you spring is on the way – dry unfiltered cider with fresh grapefruit juice and equinox hops. ABV: 5.3%

 

FLYING DOG

HORN DOG BARLEYWINE: 4/6 cases

Horn Dog requires big fruity, tangy, or spicy flavors to balance the sweet malt barley wine flavors. Malty sweet with hints of brown fruits (i.e. figs, dates, raisins) and a warming alcohol tingle. ABV: 10.2%

LUCKY SOB: 4/6 cases | 1/2 kegs

Lucky SOB has aromas of slight sweet bread, followed by rich malt flavors, subtle hop notes, and a clean finish. It’s perfect with your favorite Irish fare, but even more appropriate accompanying drunken chants of ‘Erin Go Braugh.’ ABV: 5.5%

ALPHA INITIATIVE #01: 1/2 kegs

The first release in the Alpha Initiative Pilot IPA Series. Alpha #1 is an India Pale Ale brewed with HBC-431 and Centennial hops, and pale, biscuit, and oat specialty malts. ABV: 6.5%

 

FUNK BREWING

CITRUS IPA: 4/6CN cases | 1/6 kegs

A crisp and aromatic West Coast IPA made with a clean malt base that allows the grapefruit, orange and pine flavor of the hops to be showcased in both the aromatics and the taste. ABV: 7.0%

SILENT DISCO: 6/4C cases | 1/6 kegs

Move over Citrus there is a new IPA in town ! Packed with a BIG I mean YUGE bowlful of juicy fruit flavors. Tropical, herbal, and delicious. ABV: 6.8%

 

GREEN FLASH

REMIX IPA: 4/6C cases | 1/2 kegs

Back in the day, our brewers rocked the party, building a craft beer legacy that is the stuff of legend. For Remix IPA, we’re kickin’ it old school, using a mash-up of our favorite classic hops and fresh techniques. Remastering the hops that started it all. Cascade, Columbus, and Summit offer a bold aroma with bright riffs of dank pine and citrus balanced by soft malts. This solid gold hit is a crisp crowd-pleaser. ABV: 6.2%

 

LAGUNITAS

BROWN SHUGGA: 4/6 cases | 1/2 kegs

Originally a failed attempt at our 1997 batch of Olde GnarlyWine Ale resulting in an all-new-beer-style we like to call… Irresponsible. We believe this Special Ale is something unique. Feeding brown cane sugar to otherwise cultured brewery yeast is a’kin to feeding raw shark to your gerbil. It is unlikely to ever occur in nature without human intervention. And it looks weird besides. But it has happened and now it’s too late. ABV: 9.7%

 

GREAT DIVIDE

CHOCOLATE OAK-AGED YETI: 12/22 cases

CHOCOLATE OAK AGED YETI IMPERIAL STOUT is another revered incarnation of our legendary imperial stout. We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. Another great Yeti? Hell yes. ABV: 9.5%

CLAYMORE: 4/6C cases

Named for a medieval Scottish sword, CLAYMORE SCOTCH ALE is our tribute to the legendary “Wee Heavy” beers of Scotland. This malty, deep-ruby beauty features lots of caramel sweetness, a reserved hop profile, and a subtle warming character. Unlike its namesake, this beer only requires one hand, but it’ll still make you feel like nobility. ABV: 7.7%

ORABELLE: 4/6CN cases

ORABELLE is brewed with barley, wheat, oats, and rye.  This Belgian-Style Tripel is a golden beauty.  Its two yeast strains, orange peel and dash of coriander impart surprising complexity and richness to this delicate ale. Don’t let Orabelle’s demure nature fool you; this is one flavorful pour.  Watch out, she’s a charmer – one sip and you’ll be in love. ABV: 8.3%

HOP DISCIPLES: 4/6C cases

Hop Disciples – Rotating Hop Project takes a bright, clean IPA and puts a different hop variety at the forefront of the sensory experience every year. The 2018 release features Ekuanot, which features a strong tropical fruit flavor with aromas of citrus and herbs. Hop Disciples may look tough on the outside, but with its golden blonde hue and approachable 6.2% ABV, we promise it’s a lover not a fighter. ABV: 6.2%

 

GREEN FLASH

REMIX IPA: 1/2 kegs

Back in the day, our brewers rocked the party, building a craft beer legacy that is the stuff of legend. For Remix IPA, we’re kickin’ it old school, using a mash-up of our favorite classic hops and fresh techniques. Remastering the hops that started it all. Cascade, Columbus, and Summit offer a bold aroma with bright riffs of dank pine and citrus balanced by soft malts. This solid gold hit is a crisp crowd-pleaser. ABV: 6.2%

 

PINELANDS

08087: 1/6 kegs

A single malt American pale malt & versatile mosaic hops. This light pale is bursting with citrus notes. ABV: 6.0%

 

BRONX BREWING

HOLY MOTHER OF CITRUS: 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

A fiercely hoppy, hazy, and citrusy India Pale Ale that highlights the use of tangerines and an experimental hop. ABV: 8.56%

IPA SET: 2/12C cases

The IPA set contains three 12 oz. cans of four different IPA styles including Slow Your Roll, No Resolutions, Holy Mother of Citrus, and Crystal Whipped in each variety pack. ABV: 4.6% – 8.6%

 

THE BRUERY/TERREUX

THE ORDER: 12/25 cases | 1/6 kegs

Monastic breweries wrote the book on complex ales that weave notes of dark fruits, spices, caramelized character and warmth into each sip. The Order summons that tradition and adds local inspiration. Our darkening, Belgian-inspired abbey ale features dark-fruited character from dates, Belgian-style sugars and subtle spicing from coriander, which compliments the Belgian yeast esters. ABV: 10.6%

BOUFFON: 12/25 cases

This tart, witty release kicks off our Foeders with Friends collaboration series. Our good friends at Jester King came to town to brew a sour wit ale with spices to christen one of our new-to-us foeders at Bruery Terreux. We designed a recipe with bitter orange peel and coriander and set it to ferment and age with our mixed house culture and Bavarian wit yeast in the designated foeder for four months. Using the Jester King house culture for bottle conditioning, Bouffon features some of the classic notes you’d look for in a wit, including banana, pear, vanilla, bubblegum, white pepper, lemon and a signature yeast profile. It also shines with the wild character from its cultures and collaborators at Jester King and Bruery Terreux. ABV: 5.3%

 

TWO ROADS

UNORTHODOX: 6/4 cases | 1/6 kegs

This most unorthodox Russian Imperial Stout is brewed with malted rye and aggressively hopped with four different Pacific Northwest varieties to create a depth of character that’s unmistakable. Full-bodied with notes of rye, treacle, chocolate and espresso that join together to create a crescendo of flavor. You’ll want to do an unabashed Kalinka after just one taste! ABV: 9.2%

TWO JUICY: 1/6 kegs

Two Juicy is an unfiltered, cloudy “New England style Double IPA” that uses generous amounts of Hallertauer Blanc, Citra & Mandarina Bavaria hops. The result is a “juicy”, fully-charged DIPA with notes of grapefruit, pine, lychee, orange & tangerine against a soft malt backdrop. ABV: 8.2%

ZERO 2 SIXTY: 4/6C cases | 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

Zero 2 Sixty is an easy-drinking IPA with a nicely balanced tart “chassis” that brings out the flavor and aroma of the hops. It is hopped with Comet and Chinook and then kettle-soured for a tart, balanced finished. ABV: 6.0%
