Beer on Tap
Central State Rose - Central State just started distributing over our way in the last couple of weeks and dang are we pleased with what we've seen so far. If you're a fan of the mixed fermentation at our local favorite Right Proper, then we insist that you get over here and try Central State. Rose is their house rustic blonde, Table, with a few hundred pounds of raspberries added. Beautiful raspberry flavor that's somehow both sweet and tart, with a finish that's dry and just a touch of funky.
Vanish Fat Boys - They're right -- this isn't a "chubby" double IPA, it's FAT. But with a big body, bold hops, a touch of malt, and a lovely head that gives this beer a creamy quality, it's surprisingly easy to drink. We love Vanish here at the Brew Shop, and this DIPA is no exception. Watch out: this easygoing 8.5 % brew is one you can probably put in the "dangerous" category.
Crooked Run Heart & Soul - Crooked Run's flagship New England IPA is back! Haze at its best, Heart & Soul is hopped with Mosaic and 007 hops. There's a ton of tropical juice character here, but also a little bit of dank (which you know I'm into) that keeps this beer feeling balanced on top of a clean and simple malt bill.
Pale Fire Human Fly - This West Coast-style IPA is an "occasional" brew from Pale Fire, and after a few sips we hope they make it more often! Human Fly is made with an all-American hop combo known as "The 4 Cs": Columbus, Cascade, Chinook and Centennial. This lineup of classic hops means there's something for every hophead to like. It's a little citrusy, a little resinous, a little earthy and a bit dank with a touch of bitterness on the back end. It's the utility infielder of IPAs. If you want it all, Human Fly is your beer.
Center of the Universe El Duderino - Ashland-based COTU made this white russian chocolate stout with eight different malts, lactose and lots of whole vanilla beans. The taste is vanilla and espresso up front with a nice, chocolatey finish. We can't say if this is the perfect recovery beer for a tough day at the bowling alley, but it's mighty tasty.
Ardent Earl Grey Brown Ale - A taaasty little brown ale from Ardent that, as advertised, has a touch of Earl Grey tea in it. Classic English brown with great malt in a reasonably light body that is somehow both rich and easy. The tea shows up just lightly through the middle and with a bit of bitterness on the finish. This is a beer that's tea-lightful.
Brothers / O'Connor Wild Rover - Even with St Paddy's being two months away, I am absolutely ready for this Irish Red from Brothers and O'Connor. Delicious caramel malt with a touch of sweetness sits in a full bodied but easy feeling beer that is deceptively high in ABV at 7.8%. Just a little bit of hop bitterness is there to help stop the beer from being cloyingly sweet and a toasted bread finish makes this one a perfect beer to pair with that resolution-ruining burger you know you want.
Solace 2 Legit 2 Wit - As Mr. MC Hammer once so elegantly sang- "Sweat running down my chest, I do not quit, too legit, too legit to quit." Solace brewery has paid tribute to this masterpiece by brewing a Belgian Wit Ale. This Wit beer is a traditional Belgian Wit with Lemondrop hops and comes in at a modest 5.7% abv which makes this beer a great pounder with pleanty of flavor.
Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold - Get Down With the DORT! This award winning golden ale hails from the buckeye state and unlike their sports teams this does not disappoint ; ^) . Great Lakes Dortmunder is a 5.8% golden lager that has a balance of smooth malt and dry hop flavors.
Wine on Tap (Yes, you read that right!)
Gotham Elki Sauvignon Blanc - A refreshing Sauvignon Blanc from the Elqui Valley of Chile. All the melon / tropical goodness you always love in your SB with a touch of that green pepper and brine you love in your Chilean wines.
Gotham Project Truth or Consequences - "Truth or Consequences" -- it's the name of an American game show that ran from 1940-1988, a city in Sierra County, New Mexico, and now...a bold but dry red Washington State blend from the folks at Gotham Project. Seventy percent Cab Sauv, 30% Syrah, all the grapes are from the famed Columbia Valley. The Cabernet Sauvignon was fermented with berries in stainless steel tanks, and the Syrah was fermented whole cluster. The result? A wine that is flavorful and full but incredibly easy to sip. Think berries meeting vanilla and herbs for a smooth finish.
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.
Snowing in Space Nom Nom - From down the road in Charlottesville, Snowing in Space is quickly making a name for itself within the community. Case in point, Jake the Owner/Brewer of Crooked Run, showed up sipping a can just the other day. Our debut keg from Snowing in Space is Nom Nom -- single origin, dark roast -- bold, lively with notes of vanilla and caramel.
