CIGAR CITY

MADURO: 1/6 kegs &  4/6C packs

Maduro is a Northern English-style Brown Ale with some American affectations. Maduro is higher in alcohol than the common English Brown Ale and features flaked oats in the malt bill which imparts a silky body and works to mesh the roasted, toasted and chocolate components together in Maduro’s complex malt profile. The end result is a remarkably full-flavored yet approachable  Brown Ale that pairs well with mild to medium cigars. ABV: 5.5%

GUAYABERA:  4/6C packs

Traditional throughout Latin America, the guayabera shirt combines style, functionality, form and tradition in it’s four-pocketed design.  We at Cigar City feel the same reverence and appreciation for the guayabera that we do for the Citra hop varietal, an ingredient that imparts notes of tangerine, lime and berries to this traditional American Pale Ale.  The exclusive use of Citra hops in this beer creates a flavor that’s at once unique and recognizable, while it’s dry, crisp character and moderate alcohol make it as refreshing and functional as a crisp linen guayabera. ABV: 5.5%

GOOD GOURD: 12/22 packs

A liquid monument to the glory of the pumpkin, the most noble of all the gourds, this Imperial Pumpkin Ale is brewed with cinnamon, Jamaican allspice, Zanzibar cloves, nutmeg and vanilla to emulate the flavors of a decadent, piquant pumpkin pie. The gourd is good, indeed. ABV: 8.8%

OKTOBERFEST: 1/6 kegs

Our Festbier nods firmly toward the style’s history with it’s amber color, bready malt complexity and restrained hop flavor and bitterness. At the heart of this beer is a malt bill of six different German malt varieties, including a generous helping of Munich malt.  After adding Hallertauer Mittlefruh hops we ferment the beer with an authentic Bavarian lager yeast, resulting in a clean, dry and complex lager that’s at once intriguing and drinkable. ABV: 5.8%

 

DEMENTED

MOON REAPER: 1/6 kegs

A blend of five different barley and wheat malts make our Harvest Ale the color of fallen leaves and give it a robust flavor with notes of caramel. A healthy addition of locally grown, freshly harvested wet Chinook hops give this beer a deceptively full hoppy mouthfeel that creeps in with a bright piney finish that lasts. ABV: 6.0%

 

VOODOO: 6/4C packs

Appropriately named Voodoo, this IPA made with lemondrop hops will paralyze your taste buds. Super light on the bitterness and perfectly heavy on the citrus aroma and crisp mouthfeel. ABV: 6.5%

BE REAL: 6/4C packs

Be-Real, our Kiwi Galaxy Citra IPA springs out stunning flavors of juicy citrus and lemon with a refreshing body and mouthfeel. ABV: 5.7%

KNEE DEEP

BREAKING BUD: 6/4C packs

Old school meets new school in this fresh approach to the classic IPA.  At 50 IBU’s and 6.5% ABV, Breaking Bud features the restrained bitterness and alcohol of a classic IPA with newer tropical fruit hop flavors and aromas of Mosaic.  Also in the hop mix are Simcoe and CTZ, creating layers of mango, passion fruit, pine and dank.  A malt bill with a pinch of crystal malt and a hefty dose of flaked wheat keeps the beer crisp while adding flavor complexity. ABV: 6.5%

 

LAGUNITAS

SAKITUMI: 12/32 packs

This Raging Bull’uva Double-ish IPA is punched with Sake Yeast and Rice, then hopped-up for a cold-clip of counter-balanced bitterness… it just don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing! ABV: 9.0%

NITRO CREAM ALE: 1/6 kegs

Roasted malt and coffee flavors build the foundation of this creamy sweet stout. Milk sugar in your stout is like cream in your coffee.

ABV: 6.0%

MILK STOUT NITRO: 6/4C packs

Dark & delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. Pouring hard out of the bottle, Milk Stout Nitro cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like hard whipped cream. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. The pillowy head coats your upper lip and its creaminess entices your palate. Initial roasty, mocha flavors rise up, with slight hop & roast bitterness in the finish. The rest is pure bliss of milk chocolate fullness. 6.0%

NESHAMINY

TRIBUTE TRIPEL: 1/6 kegs & 4/6C packs

“This is the greatest and best song (beer) in the world… Tribute.” Not only are we huge Tenacious D fans, but we’re also huge Belgian Tripel fans, so this is our “Tribute”. Brewed with a whole lot of Pilsen malt, Hallertau and Saaz hops, as well a pinch of coriander and bitter orange peel, Tribute has a soft malt backbone that’s paired with a fruity, citrusy flavor, and spicy, yet not over done phenolic character imparted from our use of an authentic Belgian yeast strain. At 9.3% ABV the alcohol is well hidden and very deceptive, and the dry finish will leave you eager for more.

HIGH PLATEAU SAISON: 12/25 packs

A French ale yeast fermented release dry hopped with different hops each batch. ABV: 6.3%

 

 

NEW HOLLAND

SMUTTYNOSE

OKTOBERFEST: 1/2 kegs & 4/6 packs

Our Oktoberfest is a classic, true-to-style Oktoberfest beer, aka Märzen. This style dates back to the 16th century when German brewers brewed darker versions than what you see today. They were, and continue to be, slightly stronger and hoppier than their golden-hued cousins and were meant to withstand a few months of cellaring during the summer months when, due to lagers predilection for the cold, it was more difficult to brew beer. By the end of September, during the late-summer harvest, temperatures had cooled off enough and any remaining bottles of Märzen were consumed during the classic Oktoberfest celebrations. ABV: 6.3%

PUMPTOBER: 2/12 packs

Since 2003, we’ve brewed Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale with real pumpkin and a blend of classic pumpkin pie spices in tribute to our colonial forebearers. Recipes calling for the use of pumpkins have been found from early European settlers in New England, when brewers sought to extend their supply of costly imported malt with locally grown ingredients, such as squash and “pompions.” ABV: 6.5%

 

BRONX BREW

BOG SMASH: 1/6 kegs & 1/2 kegs

A fall seasonal brewed with cranberries giving this pale ale a subtle tart finish. Cranberries can only grow in a few parts of the world and lucky for us, NY State happens to be one of them. We used cranberries from a few of NY’s best bogs to add a subtle tartness to this seasonal pale ale. The hops we use provide woody aromas & bitterness and the malt’s sweetness keeps the acidity of the berries in check. We feel the Bog Smash is the perfect complement for the crisp outdoor weather we love to enjoy in the fall. Plus, it’s super fun to yell “Bog Smash”, so hope you enjoy! ABV: 7.0%

RYE FIDELITY: 6/4C packs

A spicy Rye IPA that’s balanced with a generous amount of West Coast hops, giving this brew a strong, pleasant bitterness and raising it to Imperial status with an 8.1% ABV. Our devotion to our Rye Ale runs deep. After all, it was the second beer we ever brewed. But we couldn’t resist the temptation to make a bigger, more badass version and this spicy Rye IPA delivers. With heavy citrus aromas on the nose and a crisp, dry, warm finish on the mouth, it’s a complex, yet finely balanced big hoppy beer with an 8.1% ABV that we can’t get enough of. Looks like we committed some infidelity with our Rye Fidelity. ABV: 8.1%

PALISADES: 1/2 kegs

Collaboration w/ Sparrowine & Liquor Co. in Hoboken, NJ. Brewed w/ Biscuit Malt & Oat Flake specialty grains Hopped w/ Palisade & Mosaic. Dry-hopped w/ Palisade & El Dorado. ABV: 6.2%

 

BRUERY TERREUX

FRUCHT LEMON & CHERRY: 1/6 kegs & 12/25 packs

Welcome to Frucht, our land of fruited Berliner Weisse-style beers. Known for a tart flavor profile and traditionally low ABV, our German-style wheat beer gains even more funky notes and natural earthy-woodiness from fermentation in one of our twin oak foeder vessels – the largest known to be fabricated in this country. This installment in our Frucht series is the first to feature two fruits (früchte?), with the refreshing combination of lemon zest and tart cherries. ABV: 5.0%

BERET: 1/6 kegs

Beret is as artistic as those who wear its namesake cap. Our brewers developed a silky, full-bodied wheat ale which we began fermenting with our house yeast strain. To finish the fermentation, we added our collection of barnyard bacteria, intended to slowly sour the ale, bringing out a slight funk and refreshing piquancy. Finally, a small dose of pureed raspberries were added for just a hint of fruity tannins, putting the berry in Beret. ABV: 8.6%

THE ORDER: 1/6 kegs & 12/25 packs

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%

GOSES ARE RED: 1/6 kegs & 12/25 packs

This is a rosé – and a gose – by any other name. Goses are Red is a stylish match of a funky, crisp and tart gose with the soft sweetness of a rosé wine. The refreshing wheat-based beer begins with some of the qualities you’d expect from a gose, including coriander spicing and a light saltiness to complement the tartness imparted by our house cultures. But the story doesn’t end there – it builds in complexity, thanks to time spent in an oak foeder and the addition of grapes, which impart a refreshing rosé character and color. It’s a charming interpretation that says all the right things, but it’s not as sweet as you. ABV: 5.3%

MASH & COCONUT: 1/6 kegs & 12/25 packs

This is our bourbon barrel-aged imperial brown ale, Mash, stretching to new levels. Mash & Coconut features nearly 400lbs. of toasted coconut per batch, which ratchets up the complex, native coconut character and complements the oaky and vanilla notes that are imparted to the beer as part of its extensive maturation in bourbon barrels. ABV: 13%

MIDNIGHT AUTUMN MAPLE: 1/6 kegs & 12/25 packs

The nights are getting darker and autumn is in its element. This variation of our fall seasonal brings both forces together for a limited time. Midnight Autumn Maple is a dark imperial ale brewed with midnight wheat, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, maple syrup and a whole lot of yams. ABV: 9.0%

 

THREE 3’S

DRENCHED: 6/4C packs

Straw colored India Pale Ale bursting with juicy American hops (Citra, Simcoe, and Mosaic) is filled with flavors and aroma of Peach, Mango, and citrus juices. Smooth and balanced with soft bitterness. Insanely drinkable! ABV: 6.3%

 

TWO ROADS

TWO JUICY: 4/6 packs

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%

ESPRESSWAY STOUT: 1/6 kegs & 4/6 packs

In a process unique to Two Roads, we mixed a locally-roasted Ethiopian/Sumatra blend of beans with a rich oatmeal stout under pressure (like espresso but without the steam) using our German-built “Brewnik” device. The mixture is steeped for several days resulting in a true, cold-brewed coffee stout. Hop on the Two Roads Espressway! ABV: 6.5%

 

WEYERBACHER

RASPBERRY IMPERIAL STOUT: 12/25  packs

Raspberry Imperial Stout is a wonderfully full-flavored beer with just a “kiss” of raspberry flavor. This 8% ABV Imperial Stout won a Silver Medal at the 1997 World Beer Championships. It was chosen as the National Grand Champion at the US Beer Tasting Championships in 2003 and 2004. ABV: 8.0%

EASTON BROWN & DOWN: 1/2 kegs & 4/6 packs

Easton Brown & Down is a 5.6% ABV Brown Ale. Brewed with deep-roasted chocolate malt, this brew has a warm, roasty flavor that balances out with a slightly dry finish. ABV: 5.6%
