What's On Tap

Bring in your growler for beer, wine and nitro cold brew coffee fills!  We offer 64 oz, 32 oz and 16 oz growler fills as well as 32oz crowler fills!

Vasen Apricot Sour - Vasen had been kicking out amazing sours and saisons since Day 1 and having tried this beer while out with friends, I knew we had to have this for our draft lines. The Apricot Sour is a delicious representation of what Vasen’s house Lacto culture can do. The apricot is gentle in smell but more robust in taste, and plays perfectly with the delightful tartness that runs all the way through this beer. While apricot is the star here, there’s plenty of stone fruit and other tropical flavors in play, and while it’s sitting at 7% abv, this beer feels light and crushable.

Adroit Theory Elegy- This is some good juice. We have grown accustomed to Adroit’s Hazy IPA line being solid brews and they have not disappointing with their newest version of Elegy Irony Edition. This hazy ipa has nice fruit hops that finish with a low bitterness…

Maine Beer Lunch- What is there to be said about this notoriously delicious IPA from Maine Beer? Hopped with Amarillo, Simcoe and Centennial, Lunch is loaded with notes of tropical fruit and pine. As Maine Beer says, Lunch is an east coast take on a west coast IPA — rightfully so, Lunch is certainly the OG of the East Coast IPA craze.

Precarious Sick Mods - I don’t think I can say it any better than the brewers did: “ We took a normal pale ale and added some sick mods so we could beat any whip off the line, brah” — pretty much sums up this New England style IPA, brewed with Citra and Mosaic. It features pale ale malt and oats for that slickness that allows you to drift around corners, they say. It’s big, it’s dank, and oh so smooth.

Three Notch’d Big Poppa Biggie- Believe me sweety I got enough ABV to feed the needy, no need to be greedy. I got mad flavors with chocolate and graham crackers in layers. Big Poppa Biggie brings all of your favorite flavors of the original to another level of power. Just how Biggie owned the stage and the mic, this delicious imperial stout will own the night.

Hardywood 2018 Bourbon Baltic Sunrise- Our birthday month continues with our special keg tappings! Next up is Hardywood’s 2018 Bourbon Baltic Sunrise - a Baltic-style porter brewed with coffee beans and aged on bourbon barrels. Bourbon Baltic Sunrise was delicious when it first arrived last winter, but let me tell you - this beer has aged beautifully. The bourbon brings gentle notes of vanilla with hints of dark chocolate and cherry. But don’t worry, there’s still a good bourbon punch that will warm your right up! As always, 64 oz of this special birthday tapping gives you a free 64 oz Brew Shop pint glass.

James River Liffey River Ale - Looking for a quick getaway to Ireland? This Irish-style Red ale from James River will transport you directly to the Liffey River in Dublin. Beautifully copper, Liffey is roasty and toasty with a smooth finish. All that’s missing is your best Irish accent after drinking a growler!

Devil’s Backbone Azrael - Azrael has returned! It’s been a couple of years since Devil’s Backbone has brewed Azrael and we’re glad to see it back. A Belgian Strong Golden, this is one of those beers that feels easy drinking and sessionable and then ends up being 7% abv. Lovely Belgian notes of clove and spice along with a slight candied finish.

Fine Creek Zwickel Pilsner - Excited to tap another beer from Fine Creek - a tiny farm brewery out of Powhatan, Virginia. Don’t let the fun name, Zwickel, intimidate you - Zwickelbier is a term used to describe beer “straight for the tank” meaning that the beer doesn’t go through a fining or filtering process. What this means to you is a naturally brewed Pilsner that allows the Hallertau Blanc hops to shine with notes of floral and a clean, crisp finish.

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

Gotham Project Sabine Rose - Well the people have spoken!  You demanded it, and we will be rocking the Sabine all year long now!  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 -  Back by popular demand! Gotham Pacific Standard Cab is a fruit forward beauty made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Lodi, Mendocino, and Sonoma. A nice dryness on the finish comes from the smooth tannins and the touch of oak. If you’re a fan of the Auspicion Cab bottles that you see us rolling through day in and day out, then you’ll be very happy with the Gotham Pacific Standard Cab - grab a growler and fill ‘er up!

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 - The original Alchemist cold brew is back! So smooth and just slightly sweet on the finish, it’s nice and light and easy. The best part about Synthesis is that it smells like a warm cup of coffee, despite being a cold cup of coffee, in that blanket-on-a-cold-day kind of way. We’re so happy to have this back on our line! If you haven’t had this yet, you gotta try it.
