Beer on Tap

Crooked Run Sticky Rice- If you like Pina Colada and dancing in the rain.... so you'll love this Berliner Weisse . Sticky Rice is skillfully blended with coconut mango and rice milk. The finished product is a slightly sour cocktail inspired beer that is perfect for a hot day of grilling burgers and laying in the sun. hovering at 5% abv. you could drink this pounder all day. You'll be running crooked to come get this one.

Starr Hill Hop'Easter- Here at the Brew Shop home brewers hold a special place in our hearts. Hop'Easter IPA is the brain child of a home brewer, this recipe went on to win the 2017 IPA JamBEERee homebrew competition. Starr Hill decided to brew this New England IPA commercially. The beer  is packed with tropical fruit flavors, pours a light hazy color and finishes with a low bitterness, high hop finish. This beer is available draft only and sits at a healthy 6.8% abv.

Precarious Beer Project Everything is Lava- Precarious Beer Project just threw down a deliciously juicy DIPA in Everything is Lava. Notes of pineapple and grapefruit share the spotlight in this brew smoothing out its 8% abv. A combination of Idaho 7 and Mosaic hops imparts subtle bitterness, spice, dryness, and a flavor profile reminiscent of mixed berries, making Everything is Lava a perfect sunny weather DIPA. Perhaps Precarious Beer Project can call its next beer, "You didn't hit me! I'M MADE OF METAL." (I'll give it to my brother, because he's always been a cheater.)

Solace Juice Head- Gym Tan Laundry is a way of life brah,  You don't become swoll by drinking weak IPAs and Solace Juice Head ain't no weak IPA. This Double IPA comes in at a hefty 9% abv and tastes as good as repping one more set of bicep curls. Juice head is dry hopped with Mosaic and Falconer’s flight hops. This beer is the perfect growler to re-hydrate after a night of intense fist pumping .

Benchtop Gong Water- Get it on, bang the gong, get it on....The band T-rex lived by this idea and now you can too. Benchtop's Gong Water is an experimental hazy IPA that is made with Norwegian yeast. This particular strain of yeast can ferment at a much higher temperature than other IPA's. This process is called gong hence the name. The beer ends with a clean finish that is loaded with pineapple and mango aromas. Do not fret because Benchtop dry-hops this juicy goodness using over 3 lbs per barrel of Citra hops leaving the finished product like a soft pillow for your mouth.

Three Notch'd Brew Betties Lager - To say that we're excited to have Three Notch'd Brew Betties on tap is an understatment.  Our friends at Three Notch'd collaborated with the Charlottesville craft loving ladies (aka the "Brew Betties") to brew this delicious Maibock style lager.  Being craft beer loving ladies and homebrewers ourselves, Three Notch'd's head brewer Dave Warwick hand delivered our Brew Betties himself.  Whoa, what an honor!  As you would expect from Three Notch'd, Brew Betties is deliciously complex with notes of toasted bread and caramel followed by a crisp clean finish.  

Fair Winds BA Bulkhead Brown - So, maybe you're not into IPAs, say you usually like darker beers, and prefer something more malty and smooth, instead of a sour or hoppy brew - especially when it's 85 degrees like it has been! It can be hard to find those darker beers during the warm, summer months, but Fair Winds has made a perfect pleaser if this describes you. The Bulkhead Brown is barrel-aged, giving a touch of booziness to this light-bodied brown ale. Toffee and chocolate notes round Bulkhead out, and at 6.5% ABV, it's almost poolside drinkable.

Three Notch'd Michelle's White Wedding - Back in 1982, Billy Idol thought it was a nice day for a white wedding. Well, today so do we, and so does Three Notch'd. Michelle's White Wedding is a delightful, easy-drinking wit beer. Packed full of citrus and pepper notes and sitting at 5.2%, you'll finish this beer in no time, perhaps even at a white wedding. And if not, just kick back with a growler and think, it's a nice day to start again.

Right Proper Being There - DC's Right Proper goes German with Being There, a nod to the unfiltered kellerbier ("cellar beer") meant to be drunk right away. Their version comes in at 5% ABV and drinks a bit like a hoppy kolsch: Bready, grassy, floral and dry. You could get a crowler of a lager, but sie sind zu elegant dafür!   

Wine on Tap (Yes, you read that right!)

Gotham Project Sabine Rose - It's back!  You demanded it, and we will be rocking the Sabine all summer long!  Sabine is a classic French Rose with a beautiful floral scent.  Red berries, crisp acidity, and a dry finish make this an insanely crushable wine, for any season.

Gotham Pacific Standard Cabernet Sauvignon -  Soft, velvety, and slightly dry, the Pacific Standard Cab is now my go to summer red. Light-bodied for a red, this wine imparts notes of blueberry jam, currants, and smooth oaky vanilla. Grab a glass of Pacific Standard, sit on your patio and enjoy the weather. As for what to pair with this wine, we'll let one of our favorite, straight-faced shop regulars do the honors. He raved upon first taste,  "would go very well with some red meats".

Nitro Cold Brew Coffee

If you've never had nitro cold brew coffee, you are in for a treat!  Served cold without ice, nitro cold brew is creamy (just like a Guinness!) with a little natural sweetness.  Refreshing and perfect for your afternoon coffee fix. 

Alchemist Synthesis Nitro Cold Brew  -  Grown in Guatemala and roasted at Ceremony in Annapolis, Synthesis coffee beans are dark and rich with notes of cocoa, dried fruit and roasted nuts.  To create an exceptional nitro cold brew experience, the Synthesis beans are then brewed locally by Alchemist Coffee Company in Alexandria using a method that highlights the natural sugars of the beans (and avoids any nasty bitterness).
