Beer on Tap

Graft / Aslin Strange Lands -  Excited to debut Graft on our sour line with their Shared Universe collaboration with Aslin.  Welcome to the world of funnnnnky ciders.  Strange Lands is indeed strange - but in the best of ways - as a brett fermented peach gose with vanilla, ginger and sea salt plus a double dry hop of Citra lupulin powder.  My palette is happily perplexed.

Solace Partly Cloudy - Solace's brand new NE style IPA is here!  Partly Cloudy is, as named, partly cloudy, with that New England haze that you want.  Hopped with Citra and El Dorado, you're getting a really bright hop profile that translates into tropical citrus and just a touch of pine.  A suuuuuper drinkable IPA, as the NE styles tend to be, and one that will keep you smiling at 7% even while it gets you into trouble ;-)

Brothers / The Answer Patchwork Constellation When you hear Brothers is doing an IPA collaboration with The do whatever you need to to get it.  Absolutely living up to my personal mental hype, the Patchwork Constellation is a tropical hop beauty with tons of Mosaic and Galaxy hops just right up front in your face.  An easy body at 5.3% and a dry finish are two things that always keep me raising my glass for more. 

Ocelot Fooling Around -  Yes, Ocelot - get in my belly.  This IPA is everything I have come to love in an Ocelot beer.  Straw yellow in color, bright hop profile on top of a gentle malt profile (Ocelot abv always sneaks up on me because the beers are so drinkable!) and the best kind of dry finish. 

DuClaw Sweet Baby Java - From first smell, you certainly know there's a lot going on here. This is the famed Sweet Baby Jesus with the addition of espresso beans.  Peanut butter and chocolate on the nose and those are definitely the first things you taste.  This gives way to a really smooth coffee roast that somehow finds a way to be completely without astringency.  Overall a lot of really big flavors that blend very well together.  So yes, there's a lot going on here, but it definitely works!

Great Lakes Christmas Ale - The US's most iconic Christmas beer (is it fair to say that?!) is here!  With the first snowflakes of the season, it felt super appropriate to tap our first GL Christmas keg.  A winter warmer style that reminds you how good Great Lakes is at putting together a malt bill.  Perfect amounts of spice and honey accent the caramel and dark fruits of the malt in a way that makes me want to get this beer, get a blanket, and watch the snow fall.

Lost Coast Winterbraun - Winterbraun is what Lost Coast calls "a richer, stronger" version of their Downtown Brown.  And they're absolutely right - a rich mouthfeel and velvety texture dominate, with a really great malt profile.  Some caramel, some chocolate, a bit of raisin and fig type flavors, and just a touch of spice coming from the Saaz hops.  Overall this is a dangerously drinkable 8% abv and just perfect for the coming snow! 

Port City Tidings -  One of my favorite holiday beers is back!  A lot of holiday beers are the winter warmer or other darker, maltier focused beers.  Tidings is a departure from that - a Belgian strong golden, with all the holiday spices you've come to love: coriander, cardamom, ginger, and grains of paradise.  I always tell people this beer is like Optimal Wit on holiday steroids. In the best way.

Crooked Run I'm a Viking -  Grab your finest stein, put on your horned helmet and enjoy a pint of this tasty Norwegian style ale. The beer is made with juniper and has a bright fruity finish. It comes in at a modest 5.5% ABV which makes it the perfect pounder right before you and the gang plunder a village. SKOL!!!! (Cheers in Norse)

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 Faienza Sangiovese -  Next up from the Gotham Project is Faienza, a Sangiovese out of Italy.   Fall is perfect for a rustic Italian wine, plus this one is a versatile food pairer.  Earthy with bright red fruit, Faienza is so on point for the season, just like a leather jacket paired with bright red lipstick.   

Nitro Cold Brew Coffee

Alchemist Coffee Company Antithesis - 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.  We're pleased to start with serving Antithesis -- brewed by Alchemist Coffee Company out of Alexandria with beans roasted by Ceremony Coffee Roasters out of Annapolis.  Brewed using dry roasted coffee from Brazil, Antithesis has notes of dried fruit and toasted nut.
