21st Amendment Fireside Chat: $9.99/6pk
Like FDR’s Depression-Era Radio Addresses, which were like a kick in the butt and a hug at the same time, our Fireside Chat is a subtle twist on the traditional seasonal brew. We begin with a rich, dark, English-style ale and then we improvise with spices until we know we have a beer worth sharing with the nation. Celebrating the right to be original. 7.9% ABV.
Abita Andygator: $11.99/6pk
A creature of the swamp, Andygator is a unique high gravity brew made with 2-row pale malt, German lager yeast, and Liberty hops. Unlike other high gravity brews, Andygator is fermented to a dry finish. 8% ABV.
Boulder Shake: $10.99/6pk
Our twist on the traditional American porter, Shake chocolate porter is black in color with rich, dark chocolate aromatics and flavors and subtle coffee-like notes. This unique brew blends five different grains, including Chocolate Wheat, that along with cacao nibs create a devilishly delicious chocolate finish with a velvety mouth feel. 5.9% ABV.
BrewDog Libertine: RB99_$10.99/4pk
Libertine Black Ale is a 7% wickedly decadent black beast of a beer that has been hammered with the epic Simcoe hop. With a drinkability that defies its color and depth of flavor, Libertine delivers a dark hop bomb combining the west coast hop awesomeness of an IPA, the dark and indulgent malt flavors of big stout with a lightness on the palate that bellies the punch that this beer packs. Bags of flavor and loads of hops. We intend to bottle some of this batch for those not lucky enough to make it to a BrewDog Bar to try it.
BrewDog Tokio: RB99_$13.99/11.2oz
This imperial stout is brewed with copious amounts of specialty malts, jasmine and cranberries. After fermentation we then dry-hop this killer stout with a bucketload of our favourite hops before carefully ageing the beer on French toasted oak chips. 18.2% ABV.
The Bruery Oude Tart: BA95_RB99_$22.99/22oz
Oude Tart is a Flemish-Style Red Ale aged in red wine barrels for 18 months. Pleasantly sour with hints of leather, dark fruit and toasty oak. 7.5% ABV.
Dekoninck Tripel: $10.99/4pk
Brewed with addition of biological cane sugar from South America, instead of the ubiquitous Belgian white candi sugar.
Dogfish Head Bitches Brew: BABROS95_RB99_$12.99/750ml
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 bold, dark beer that’s a fusion of three threads imperial stout and one thread honey beer with gesho root, a gustatory analog to Miles’ masterpiece. Featuring the album’s iconic artwork, created by the late Mati Klarwein, on its label, Dogfish Head’s Bitches Brew will be unveiled at SAVOR, An American Craft Beer & Food Experience, June 5, National Building Museum, Washington DC. Haven’t experienced the Bitches Brew album? Two 40th anniversary editions of Miles Davis’ Bitches Brew — a Legacy Edition and a deluxe Collector’s Edition — will be available Tuesday, August 31. The newly created ale is designed, according to Dogfish founder and president Sam Calagione, “as the ultimate partner for chili or spicy curry chicken” and best enjoyed “sipped cool, not cold, from a snifter or red wine glass while listening to the Bitches Brew album.” Calagione was drawn to the alchemical spirits in Bitches Brew right out of college, acquiring a copy of the album “within months of the first time I brewed a batch of homebrew in my apartment in New York City. I listened to it when I was writing my Dogfish business plan. I wanted Dogfish Head to be a maniacally inventive and creative brewery, analog beer for the digital age. You could say that my dream was to have Dogfish Head, in some small way, stand for the same thing in the beer world that Bitches Brew stands for in the jazz world. You can imagine how excited we are to be doing this project 17 years after I wrote that business plan.” “There’s a spirit of innovation, of creativity and individuality, thats at the core of Miles’ music,” said Adam Block, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Legacy Recordings. “Sam and Dogfish Head approach their art from the same place and consequently the marriage is an easy and cool one.” Dogfish Head and its “off-centered ales for off-centered people” were the subject of “A Better Brew,” an article in The New Yorker (Nov. 24, 2008) examining the rise of extreme beer. “Beer has lagged well behind wine and organic produce in the ongoing reinvention of American cuisine. Yet the change over the past twenty years has been startling,” wrote Burkhard Bilger. “Dogfish is something of a mascot for this unruly movement. In the thirteen years since Calagione founded the brewery, it has gone from being the smallest in the country to the thirty-eighth largest. Calagione makes more beer with at least ten per cent alcohol than any other brewer, and his odd ingredients are often drawn from ancient or obscure beer traditions. It is to Budweiser what a bouillabaisse is to fish stock.” 9% ABV.
Dogfish Head Kvasir: $12.99/750ml
With the help of bio molecular archaeologist Dr. Patrick McGovern, we’ve re?created another Ancient Ale, this time from the Nordic climes of Scandinavia. The recipe for Kvasir was developed with the help of chemical, botanical and pollen evidence taken from a 3,500?year?old Danish drinking vessel. The vessel, made of birch bark, was found in the tomb of a leather?clad woman Dr. Pat says was probably an upper-class dancer or priestess. The analysis pointed to the ingredients used in this unique brew: wheat, lingonberries, cranberries, myrica gale, yarrow, honey and birch syrup. The base of Kvasir is a toasty red winter wheat, and the bog-grown berries deliver a pungent tartness. While a handful of hops is used, the earthy, bitter counterpunch to the sweet honey and birch syrup comes from the herbs. 10% ABV.
Dogfish Head Old School: RB98_$15.99/4pk
Inspired by a tale of a cask doctor who brought sluggish ales back to life by suspending a fig in them. Brewed from 100% Maris Otter pale ale malt, a blend of fine hops and conditioned on dates and figs. User Instructions: open bottle, pour contents into two snifters. Enjoy. ALTERNATIVELY: Walk hand-in-neck with bottle into the middle of the woods. Use shovel to dig 2×2 hole three feet deep. Seal bottle in plastic bag. Place in hole and pack with dirt. Memorize location and leave. Return exactly one year later. Dig up bottle, open and enjoy. 15% ABV.
Lefthand Polestar Pilsner: $9.99/6pk
A brilliant, refreshing lager; hand crafted using traditional method & ingredients. A zesty, German style pilsner with a dry, crisp finish. 5.5% ABV.
Weyerbacher Winter: 9.99/6pk
At Weyerbacher we have created a Winter Ale that is a must for any malty beer lover. Winner of a Silver Medal in the 1998 World Beer Championships, Weyerbacher Winter Ale is brewed with deep-roasted chocolate malt. The taste predominates with a warm, roasty flavor, balanced out with a slightly dry finish. It is smooth but not cloying, with a warming belt of alcohol (5.6% ABV). Although winter ales predate history, they are believed to have their origin in the pagan celebrations of winter solstice. Later, when monasteries produced the local brew, winter ales were made each year to commemorate the birth of Christ. Back then, winter ales were brewed full-bodied as a source of nutrition for the upcoming winter months. Today, winter ales are typified by their seasonality, their rich, malty flavors and by their deep, dark coloration. Generally available November-March, Weyerbacher Winter Ale is the perfect libation for a winter meal, with good friends, or beside a warm fire fending off a cold winter night.
Ballast Point Calico: BA86_RB94_$10.49/6pk
Calico Amber Ale is brewed in the American Amber style. Full bodied and aromatic, it is brewed with 6 malts for deep red color and full flavor. 5% ABV.
Ballast Point Pale Ale: $10.49/6pk
Our original Pale Ale is a rich golden brew, crafted with aromatic German hops and rounded out with a blend of American and Munich malts. While it’s hopped like a lager, we ferment it like an ale to create a smooth, bright taste that has just a hint of fruit and spice. It’s extremely drinkable, like a Kolsch should be, yet complex, like a good craft beer demands. 5.2% ABV
Blue Mountain Winter Nap: $11.99/750ml
Brewed solely with Pilsner and Vienna malts, and we used the same amount of barley it would take to make 1000 gallons and packed into just 500 gallons worth of the smoothest, fullest-bodied, strongest winter brew you’ve ever had. This lager defies most standard beer categorization (Germans would put it in the Doppelbock category), but we’re calling it a blonde Triplebock. The name says it all… It won’t take many of these and a long winter’s nap will be all you’re capable of doing. 10% ABV.
Breckenridge Christmas Ale: $10.99/6pk
The chill of a Colorado high-country winter calls for a beer with extra flavor and strength. Here it is. At over 7% alcohol, with a sturdy texture and rich flavors of caramel and chocolate, our holiday seasonal is the fermented equivalent of a good fire. The ultimate winter warmer.
Dogfish Head Punkin: BABROS91_RB90_$9.49/4pk
Punkin’ Ale is a full-bodied, spiced brown ale brewed with baked pumpkins, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Dogfish Head Punkin’ Ale is named after the annual Punkin’ Chunkin Festival held near Lewes, Delaware the weekend after Halloween. 7% ABV.
Dupont Avec les Bons Voeux: BA93_RB99_$10.49/750ml
“Les Bons Voeux” means best wishes, which is what Brasserie Dupont sends with this very special saison ale brewed only for the holidays. Redolently aromatic, rich and velvety, this is an ale to toast the season and welcome in the New Year!
Erdinger Schneeweisse: $3.99/16.9oz
With a slightly darker color and slightly higher alcohol content than the classic ERDINGER Weissbier ‘with fine yeast’, the ‘winter brew’ offers a really pleasant change at the coldest time of the year, a time when we like to treat ourselves to something special. 5.6% ABV.
Flying Dog Single Hop Simcoe: BA91_RB97_$14.99/6pk
While that damn Dionysus was taking all the glory, Simcoe, Greek God of Beer and Relaxation, was out, diligently developing tools for man to brew- fresh grain and hops, active yeast, and bountiful water. With its golden glow and sharp hop bite, our Imperial Single Hop IPA is a tribute to this lesser-known God (and as temple-worthy as its namesake). 10% ABV.
Great Divide Fresh Hop: BABROS93_RB98_$7.99/22oz
Brewing with fresh hops is a big endeavor, requiring four to five times the hop volume compared to using pelletized hops. Although the process is complex, it brings impressive results: Fresh Hop is an American-style pale ale with moderate hop bitterness marked by a unique and intensely grassy hop flavor and aroma. Fresh Hop is a superbly refreshing, medium bodied, light-copper colored pale ale weighing in at 55 IBUs and 6.1% ABV.
Maine Red Wheelbarrow: $6.99/16.9oz
Like many of our beers, Red Wheelbarrow (which started out as a pilot batch brewed by Brewer Dan Roberts) doesn’t fit neatly into a style category — think of it as a stronger, more hop-forward interpretation of a traditional red ale. Red Wheelbarrow is not, however, a “red IPA” – there is robust malt character (think raisin and fig) on both the nose and palate that temper the abundant hop presence (think citrus fruit). Vitals: Color – Red ABV – 7.0% O.G. – 1.070 Malt – Weyermann Munich 1, Briess 2-Row, Victory, Chateau Special B, Chateau Abbey, Briess C-80 Hops – Columbus, Amarillo, Falconer’s Flight.
New Holland Cabin Fever: $11.49/6pk
Robust in character yet smooth in delivery, Cabin Fever is a roasty brown ale and a hearty, comforting companion for long, mind-bending winters. Its rye, roast and raisin notes play off a subtle caramel sweetness and culminate in a dry finish. Excellent with roasts, stews, caramelized onions and snowfall. 6% ABV.
N’Ice Chouffe: BABROS94_RB98_$15.99/4pk
A dark brown, fruity, lightly hoppy, sparkling, strong beer and is not pasteurized. 10% ABV.
Rogue Santa’s Private Reserve: BABROS91_RB92_$6.99/22oz
Rogue’s annual holiday offering, Santa’s Private Reserve, is a variation of the classic Saint Rogue Red, but with double the hops–including Chinook, and Centennial, and a mystery hop called Rudolph by head brewer John “more hops” Maier! This holiday elixir is brewed with two-row Harrington, Klages and Munich malts, along with Hugh Baird 30-37, Carastan 13-17, and Crystal 70-80 malts, plus free range coastal water and proprietary top-fermenting Pacman yeast. 6% ABV.
Rogue Yellow Snow: RB96_$6.99/22oz
Pale golden in color with a hoppy fruity aroma. Big hop flavor up front complemented by medium body and hoppyness mid-pallet. Finishes with a characteristic lingering bitterness. 6.2% ABV.
Scaldis Noel: BABROS99_RB97_$17.99/750ml & 11.2oz
This is a sweet beer with a pleasant flavour of hops. Indeed, for Bush de Noel, the brewer uses a traditional process which consists in placing hops flowers in the vats where the beer rests for four to six weeks by which time it will have reached full maturity, giving it a very distinctive taste. In the U.S the label generally reads Scaldis Noel. 12% ABV.
Schlafly Tasmanian IPA: BA95_RB99_$12.99/6pk
Schlafly Tasmanian IPA is brewed with 100% Australian hops. The Tasmanian hop, Galaxy, is a strong, aromatic variety that is different from traditional strains of the Pacific Northwest. Our brewers developed a recipe that showcases the hop’s unique flavors of citrus and pineapple. 7.2% ABV.
St. Feuillien Speciale: $11.99/750ml
St-FEUILLIEN SPECIALE is brewed at the end of the year. It is a festive ale full of flavor with a warm, amber glow. Refermented in the bottle, ST-FEUILLIEN SPECIALE is matured for several months in our cellars, lending it a delicate aroma, remarkable body, and naturally rich head. It is full of sumptuous, exciting contrasts.
Yards Olde Bartholomew: $9.99/750ml
When Olde Bartholomew® was around, the times were far from tame. He was a free spirit who bent elbows with the best of ‘em. This Barleywine-style Ale was brewed for characters like him. It’s an unfiltered ale, a winter warmer with a smooth malt background, soft fruit overtones and a slight hop spice in the finish. Just a few sips are sure to arouse the character in all of us. 10.5% ABV.
