Beer on Tap

Strangeways Uberlin- Brand new to the Brew Shop (Just our second keg from Strangeways) has tapped just in time for the warm weather. Uberlin is a lightly soured wheat beer that is an easy drinking 4.5% ABV which allows you to sip on these tasty suds all day long. Summer might still be a few months away but a growler of this will be having you think we are in the dog days of summer. 

Ardent New England IPA- I got a fever and the only prescription is more HAZE! Adrent isn't fooling around with this IPA. It is a triple dry-hopped 7.8% New England style IPA. This haze bomb is Citra, Mosaic, Idaho 7, Vic Secret, and Loral hopped. There is very little bitterness with a ton of fruit flavors to make this IPA an instant classic.

D9 Hakuna Matata - Hakuna Matata, what a wonderful phrase!  You definitely won't be feeling any worries when you're drinking this tropical IPA from D9 (debut keg for The Brew Shop!).  Loaded with hops from the US, UK, Germany, Slovenia and New Zealand, this one is becoming a new favorite -- just enough hops to balance out the tropical, fruity juice and touch of malt sweetness.  

Pale Fire Walking Spanish- A classic like Don Quixote-ee, this beer is one to please-ee! Creamy, dreamy, orange and mango, the hops dance a perfect tango. So walk into to the next party like "Hola!" and tell them to put down the nasty cola.  Pale fire is nice and dank, it won't even break the bank. Don't worry we will stick to our day job of beer, but we hope this poem provide you with some extra cheer! :)

Starr Hill Two Tone  - When you hear "vanilla," you  might think of something that's humdrum, dull or at best meh. Vanilla is not edgy, but Starr Hill found a way to make it so with Two Tone.  Yeah, it's a 6% ABV vanilla porter, just like it says on the label, but there's more to it than that. Two Tone has an intriguing vanilla-and-chocolate coffee aroma and flavor from vanilla beans and a dose of dark malt. Not a chain-coffee-shop frapadoodle sugar bomb, but black coffee with a hit of vanilla extract and cocoa powder. Vanilla finally has its edge.

Charm City Elderberry - Charm City mead makes its return to our growler line!  If you know Charm City then you know they make some still meads, which come in at 12% abv, and also some carbonated meads, which come in closer to 7% abv, all made from honey.  This Elderberry Mead is one of those delicious carbonated meads.  Coming in at 6.9% abv this mead is full of gorgeous red berry flavor and pours pale pink.  If you've never had a chance to try Charm City, this is a wonderful place to start - and one that will keep you coming back!

Pleasure House O'Brien Clan Irish Red -  Our first keg from Virginia Beach's own Pleasure House Brewing!  Tim O'Brien is the owner of Pleasure House, so it's fitting that the Irish Red is named after him.  Just what you want in your Irish red -- toasted malt, a slight sweetness and just a touch creamy.  

Strangeways Albino Monkey - Our first keg from Strangeways out of Richmond is one of their top sellers, the Albino Monkey Belgian White Ale.  This is a crowd pleaser to be sure, but it stands above your run of the mill white ale.  You can tell there's lots of great spice additives underneath this chewy, wheaty malt profile - coriander, orange peel, lemon peel, white pepper, and Virginia wildflower honey!  

Adrent Bohemian Pilsner- Is this real life, is this just fantasy, caught in a pint glass, take sips to leave reality.... Party on Wayne! This is the pilsner you want for your party, its a easy drinking 4.8% abv and hit on all the classic European tastes of a traditional pils. This beer is clean, classic and tasty.

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

Gotham Project Sabine Rose - It's back!  You demanded it, and we grabbed the first keg of Sabine Rose that we could.  Who cares if it's January (it's 50 degrees anyway!) - 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.

Gran Passione Rosso -  I’m a lover, not a fighter.  That’s why I can’t get enough of the Gran Passione Rosso — Italian for “great red passion” — a big, bold, yet delicate Venetian blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Corvina.  It’s rustic, rich, and bursting with dark fruits (think black cherry, raisin, plum). What else is cool about it?  It’s made using “appassimento,” an Italian technique for drying harvested grapes, usually on bamboo racks or mats, for several weeks to concentrate the sugars and flavors.  Perfect alongside grilled meats, pizza and pasta, or just on its own — you can’t say "no" to this early fall delight brimming with spices!

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).
