WineWorks in Marlton sent us over the following information.
B. United Importers have created a barrel aging program called the Zymatore Project where they age beer they import from several different breweries in different barrels at their headquarters in Connecticut. Barrels being used come from all over the world and included are whiskey, gin, rum, and wine etc. Most of these beers are draft only but the first three bottles have just hit our store. The first is a sour ale from Alvinne, which we got a shippment of a couple weeks ago that sold out instantly, so if you missed out last time do not hesitate, it will be gone just as fast this time around. The other two are wine barrel aged meads and are very limited as well.
Also in this week is a new edition to Southern Tier’s Black Water Series, a new 750mL from Magic Hat, Sixpoint’s summer seasonal, and an eisbock from Schneider Aventinus.
Please remember to stop in tomorrow for a ‘Meet the Brewer’ night with Neshaminy Creek Brewing Co. We will have free samples from 5-7pm of their County Line IPA, Tribute Triple, and Leon Russian Imperial S’mores Stout. See you then.

Schneider Aventinus Eisbock: BA Bros 99 RB 99: $4.99/12oz
Aventinus, the Wheat Doppelbock of Bavaria, has always been known to be the most intense and complex wheat beer in the world. This was the case for the past sixty years, but not anymore… Up until the 1940’s, Aventinus was shipped all over Bavaria in containers lacking temperature control. Consequently, the precious drink partially froze during transportation. Unaware that the brew was concentrated by the separation of water from the liquid. People were baffled by this unique version of Aventinus. By chance, the first Aventinus Eisbock was created. Well aware of this story, Hans Peter Drexler, brewmaster of the Schneider brewery decided to recreate this classic “mistake” in a modern controlled facility. Thus, the Aventinus Eisbock is reborn sixty years later … Prost!
Sixpoint Apollo: BA Bros 95 RB 84: $8.99/4pk
