21st AMENDMENT

EL SULLY

Con el sol en los ojos, no veíamos bien, pero tú estas más cerca de él en este momento que la mayoría de la gente tendrá la suerte de estar.  Wait, sorry about that.  The sun was in our eyes and we did not get a good look, but you are closer to him right now than most will ever have the good fortune to be. Who is El Sully? Grab a can of this Mexican-Style lager, head to the nearest beach, even if it’s imagined, and perhaps he’ll come to you. ABV:4.8%

 

ALESMITH
SPEEDWAY STOUT

Speedway Stout’s ominous, pitch-black appearance has become a hallmark of this modern-day classic. Chocolate and roasted malts dominate the flavor, supported by notes of dark fruit, toffee, and caramel. A healthy dose of locally-roasted coffee from Ryan Bros. Coffee, Inc. added to each batch brings out the beer’s dark chocolate flavors and enhances its drinkability. Despite its intensity, Speedway Stout’s fine carbonation and creamy mouthfeel make it very smooth and surprisingly easy to drink. This beer ages very well and will continue to mature for many years to come. ABV:12%

DOUBLE IPA
Every year we anxiously await the warmer months to unleash this Double IPA, the summer edition of our former YuleSmith seasonals. The flavor imparts orange, grapefruit, and tangerine hop notes with earthy, spicy, and resinous pine undertones. A sturdy malt backbone balances out the profound hop bitterness to create a refreshingly assertive and vibrant beer that offers an unapologetically bold expression of fresh American hops. ABV: 8.5%

 

BREWDOG

JET BLACK HEART: 4/6C cases

This stable stout is black as pitch and smooth as hell. Jet Black Heart is a milk stout; roasty malt flavours of coffee and chocolate, bound to a decadent full-bodied richness. Flaked oats and wheat add to the velvet mouth-feel, with the carbonation adding a honeycomb texture. Magnum and Sorachi Ace bring a berry & citrus fruitiness that amplifies the chocolate character of this inky leviathan. ABV: 4.7%

FREAK STATE: 1/6 kegs

Classic American IPA hops bring a plethora of dank and citrus aromas; pine needles, tree sap, lime peel, and nectarine, supported by grassy and floral notes. Meanwhile, a grain bill incorporating black malt and crystal rye, evokes roasty espresso and bitter chocolate. The palate is huge and complex, with bittersweet dark malt notes up front, developing into ripe stonefruit and fruity coffee. Simcoe and Chinook provide a pungent resinous undercurrent, A hint of alcohol warmth provides body, and accents the hints of sweetness that keep this engaging beer in perfect balance. ABV: 6.6%

 

CIGAR CITY

OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIE: 4/6C cases | 1/6 kegs

The genesis of the beer you’re holding in your hand was pretty simple. We asked ourselves, “What if a beer tasted like an oatmeal raisin cookie?” The answer to our rhetorical question was to add raisins, lactose and cinnamon to Maduro, our English-style Brown Ale, a beer that showcases flavors of caramel, toffee and chocolate. The combination of the base beer and the additional ingredients resulted in a beer that tastes like it was baked in Grandma’s oven. ABV: 5.5%

 

CENTRAL WATERS

PERUVIAN MORNING: 6/4 cases

A bourbon barrel aged imperial stout made with freshly roasted Emy J’s Coffee. This beer is as complex as it gets. Flavors of vanilla, tannins, and coffee meld together to create a flavor as deep as the ravines of the Peruvian Andes. ABV: 8.5%

BOURBON BARREL STOUT: 6/4 cases

The brewery’s most highly sought after beer, this imperial stout is aged to perfection in oak bourbon barrels. Look for this tasty treat to contain hints of bourbon and vanilla with roasted overtones that is sure to please any connoisseur’s palate. Serve this beer at cellar temperature from a snifter glass, and enjoy this expression of our passion for brewing. ABV: 9.5%

 

DEMENTED

ASTARTE: 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

In documented mythology the creation of strawberries is attributed to the ancient Goddess Astarte, more commonly known by her Greek name Aphrodite. Legend says that upon the death of the mortal Adonis that the Goddess wept with such passion that her tears fell to the ground as small red hearts. We started with a traditional Cream Ale, light and crisp with a great mouthfeel… Then we added fresh strawberries to give it an incredible nose, and slight tart finish. With just the right amount of fruit to make it noticeable but not overpowering, this spring/summer seasonal is a perfect offering to the celestial mother of love. ABV: 5.5%

 

DOGFISH HEAD

FESTINA PECHE: 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

In addition to fermentation with an ale yeast, Berliner Weisse is traditionally fermented with lactic cultures to produce its acidic (or green apple-like) character. Served as an apertif or summertime quencher, Festina is delicately hopped and has a pale straw color. To soften the intense sourness, Berliner Weisse is traditionally served with a dash of essence of woodruff or raspberry syrup. In Festina Peche, since the natural peach sugars are eaten by the yeast, the fruit complexity is woven into both the aroma and the taste of the beer so there is no need to doctor it with woodruff or raspberry syrup. Just open and enjoy! ABV: 4.5%

 

DOWNEAST CIDER

VARIETY: 2/9C cases

Variety packs include Original Blend, Double Blend, and Drier Side. ABV: 5.1% – 7.3%

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

DOUBLE BLEND: 6/4C cases | 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs

We decided to push the envelope on our original blend to see how far it could go. turns out, pretty far. keep your head on a swivel, she bites. ABV: 7.3%

 

EPIC BREWING

PULP ADDICTION: 4/6C cases

The next release in the new Praise the Haze series of New England-style IPAs! These juicy, hazy, hop bombs are packed to the brim with flavor. In fact, we’ve been downright irresponsible when it comes to hop utilization. Our brewers have been experimenting with everything from lupulin powder, to massive hop backs, exploring the flavor synergies of fermentation hopping, and literally cramming in more dry hops then our tanks can even hold. Through months of R&D and long nights cleaning out the clogged heat exchanger we’ve developed several different recipes – because our approach to the New England-Style is simple: more is better! ABV: 7.0%

RINO: 4/6C cases

This is a bold and unpretentious beer born out of the River North Neighborhood. Combining premium English Maris Otter malt with German Specialty grains and Pacific Northwest Hops this Pale Ale is complex, and robust but also very easy going. ABV: 5.8%

TART & JUICY: 4/6C cases

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. ABV: 5.0%

LOS LOCOS: 4/6C cases

Troy Guard is a Denver chef with a Mexican restaurant so badass we can’t even put the name on this can. While enjoying his food we had a crazy idea: brew a Mexican-Style Lager with corn, natural lime juice and just a hint of salt. We recommend it with rattlesnake chorizo Guac- yep, that’s real. Salud amigos! ABV: 4.8%

SON OF A BAPTIST: 4/6C cases

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. ABV: 8.0%


FOUNDERS

DANKWOOD: 1/4 kegs

What do you get when a big, bold imperial red IPA meets an oak bourbon barrel? A palate stunner that’ll send your senses spinning or, as we like to call it, Dankwood. Rich caramel notes emerge from the depths of the IPA, highlighting strong malt character while the bourbon barrel-aging develops the complexity. A dank, sticky and slightly sweet sipper, Dankwood is the perfect alchemy of wood and hops. ABV: 12.2%

OSKAR BLUES

PINNER: 12/19C cases

Our PINNER Throwback IPA is as close as you’re ever gonna get to tasting some twisted up calm in the Oskar Blues chaos. We crammed so much damn aroma—and boatloads of hop & malt flavor—into this beer, but we kept it crushable too. At 4.9% ABV and 35 IBUs, this edgy-yet-easygoing, drinkable IPA uses an array of hops to target its ever-evolving flavor. With tropical fruits, citrus juices, pineapple and spice berry up front in the aroma and flavor, the biscuit & toasted bread at the back balance out all the hops and make for a great finish just in time to blaze on to your next can of PINNER.
