Features Of The Month!!!!

Stone 14th Anniversary Emperial IPA
Stone Brewing went to England this past spring as self-styled “IPA Hunters” on a mission to learn more about the confusing history of India Pale Ale – to look for some certainty where those before them have found mostly mystery.  Stone Brewing Co., after all, traces its lineage back to the British Empire’s brewing history, and all of their original offerings used traditional British styles as a jumping-off point.  From the imported white malt to the “Burtonised” water to the rare yeast strain to the most pungent hops Kent has to offer, they used all British ingredients to brew their “Emperial” IPA.  While they may have brewed Stone 14th Anniversary Emperial IPA with their own distinctively modern, San Diego-style touch, what good is history if you can’t rewrite it to suit your tastes?  In this case, their tastes called for highly intemperate quantities of Target, East Kent Goldings, and Boadicea hops, bestowing upon this dry-bodied ale a powerfully spicy, earthy aroma. On the palate, peppery hops assert themselves early and often, with malt sweetness making a brief appearance before being beaten back by a long, complex, and decisively bitter finish. We will be pouring this awesome IPA at this Fridays tasting so don't miss out!!

Harpoon 100 Barrel Series #32-Potts Landbier
This beer, the 32nd in the series, has was inspired by Joerg Pott of Pott's Brauerei in Oelde, Germany. Pott’s master brewer, Peter Wienstroer, collaborated with Harpoon’s Todd Charboneau to brew this beer.  The origins of this beer go back to 2003 when a group of German brewers, including Rainer and Joerg Pott of Pott's Brauerei, took a tour of American breweries that included Harpoon. A few years later in 2007 Joerg joined the Harpoon staff for the summer months to learn more about American craft beer.  During Joerg’s 3-month tenure at Harpoon, the idea of brewing a beer together was mentioned often, but the timing never quite seemed to work out– until now.  Pott’s Landbier, or “country beer,” is a traditional session lager with a decidedly malty backbone made up of a blend of German and North American malts. The smooth malt character is tempered by the German bittering hop Magnum, which lends a clean, crisp balance. This beer is finished with more German hops for a spicy herbal palate and aroma. Fermented with Pott’s proprietary lager yeast – and imbued with over 240 years of German brewing tradition -- this is just the beer to quench your summer thirst.

Avery Anniversary Seventeen
After years of commemorating their anniversaries with deliciously wild and weird ales, Avery decided to mix it up a bit and create their first Anniversary Lager. Seventeen is a celebration and case study of the aromas and flavors of German hops. And knowing Avery's love for those beautiful green cones, you can be confident that the contents of the bottle are excessively hopped for your pleasure. Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, imported German hops, and German yeast.  This is easily the best black lager we have in the store, make sure to get a sample this Friday


Kulmbacher Eisbock

The ice bock, also known as "Bayrisch Gefrorns", owes its discovery to a coincidence. According to the chronicles of the Kulmbacher brewery, some time around 1900 an apprentice forgot on a cold winter day to carry two barrels of bock beer into the brewery cellar. The barrels stayed outside, were covered by ice and snow and weren’t discovered until the following spring. The barrels had burst and the apprentice was reprimanded. But the carelessness was a stroke of luck because under the thick ice coat, a bock beer extract remained, strong tasting and high in alcoholic content.  Even if the dark, tasty speciality is not produced in this spectacular way anymore, the chance that gave birth to this beer became a tradition. Today this beer rarity is brewed in a modern brewing and freezing process, but the incomparable taste is still the same and can always be enjoyed in winter months.  This beer is expensive, but so very worth it.  One of the best German beers in the store, hands down.


Abita Satsuma Harvest

Real Louisiana satsuma oranges, golden wheat and the finest barley create Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit. Pale and cloudy, this white beer has a sweet and subtle citrus flavor that is cool and refreshing. Abita Satsuma Harvest Wit is a summertime brew that’s Louisiana True.
