kstgodell

Kirkwood Station Pumpkin
Our special fall seasonal. Pumpkin is added to the mash with the malt, and then it is spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and vanilla when it is finished. Its Pumpkin pie in a glass!

Tallgrass Zombie Monkie
A robust porter inspired by approximately true events…
Zombie Monkie is a dark, rich porter, carefully brewed for the post-apocalyptic world to come. Crafted with lots of roasty dark chocolate and specialty malts, then inoculated with enough hops to add a floral/citrus character in the finish. It’s hardy, complex, and interesting, because you might be drinking it for a long time. Zombie Monkie…
Grab A Can. Make A Plan. Take A Stand.

Odell Isolation Ale
A funny thing happens here around summer’s end – our eyes start searching the skies for those first fall flakes. As we welcome autumn’s first snow, we celebrate the return of Isolation Ale. A sweet caramel malty ale that is balanced by a subtle crisp hop finish. Whether you ski, shred, or shoe, Isolation Ale will inspire you to make first tracks.

Odell Mountain Standard
As the Colorado hop growers prove they can produce world class hops, we as a Colorado Craft Brewer want to showcase what our state can offer, not only with our hand crafted beers, but also with the ingredients used in creating them. Mountain Standard, Double Black IPA, features the homegrown hops our Brewers helped pick from farms along Colorado’s western slope. MST pours committingly dark with a light tan head and a slightly roasted hoppy nose. An ephemeral bitterness, the result of combining roasted malts with an assertive American hop profile, contributes to MST’s act of balance and harmony. As the season’s darkness sets in, why shouldn’t your beer become darker too?

New Beer: Big Muddy, Carson’s, Wild Onion

bigmudcarswild

Big Muddy Oktoberfest
A new seasonal from this Murphysboro, IL brewery using Pale, Munich & Vienna malts to provide a rich slightly sweet taste and German noble hop varieties Saaz, Tettnang & Hallertauer which give a smooth flavor and aroma.

Carson’s Red Dawn Amber Wheat
The Red Revolution awakens with a copper sunrise framed by a firm tan head. Luscious wheat and caramel malt connect with earthy hops to form a firm alliance. One taste of this Dawn and you’ll join our cause.

Wild Onion Pumpkin Ale
Our Classic Fall Seasonal. Crisp malt Flavor Blends Smoothly With A Hint Of Spicy Pumpkin.

Wild Onion Hefty Weiss
Bolder version of our traditional Weiss beer with a richer & more robust flavor.

Urban Chestnut Oachkatzlschwoaf

Now available in bottles!!

ucbcoaf

Urban Chestnut Oachkatzlschwoaf
This “export” style lager, brewed for our annual Oktoberfest celebration, is malty yet well balanced like the bier traditionally served at Oktoberfest in Munich. However, our Festbier has a tale/tail of its own–Oachkatzlschwoaf (pronounced “o-cat-zel-schwof”) translated is “tail of a squirrel”…just a little Bavarian humor.

Woodchuck Fall and Pumpkin

woodchuck

Woodchuck Fall
The fall harvest brings farmers and communities together to celebrate another year of fruitful labor, It is a time of shorter days, cooler night, and great apples. This cider has a complex and elegant character full of apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg balanced out with a hint of American White Oak. A true taste of the season.

Woodchuck Pumpkin
Every once in a while you know you stumble upon something glorious. That something just so happens to be our Private Reserve Pumpkin. We have combined our signature taste with a refreshing pumpkin finish. Limited to just two and half hours on the production line this is a true connoisseur’s cider.

New Extremely Rare Release at

Lukas Liquor Superstore

 

Duncan Taylor

Ardbeg 19 Year-Old

Sherry Matured

Single Malt Scotch Whisky

 Duncan Taylor Ardbeg 19 Year Sherry Finished

Rarest of the Rare

Lukas Liquor is proud to offer a limited and rare chance at owning an extremely collectible single malt Scotch whisky. The award-winning independent bottlers at Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky have hand-selected an Islay whisky that has been matured in sherry oak cask and there are very few bottles of this particular cask available in the world.

The Whisky

Distilled at: Ardbeg (Islay)

Distilled: May 1994

Cask: #347602

Bottled: March 2014

Bottles Yielded: 45 (WORLDWIDE)

ABV: 53%

Non-Chill-Filtered & No Coloring Added

Single malt aficionados and connoisseurs alike know not only of the passion and craftsmanship that Ardbeg has provided consumers and collectors over the decades but also that Duncan Taylor is one of the leading independent bottling companies that brings these rare and sought-after casks to life. This particular Duncan Taylor release of the Ardbeg 19 Year boasts a deeper and more velvety peat-smoke with a rich nutty, stewed fruit and sea salt. If you are a fan of Ardbeg and like rare releases that are one-time releases, this is a bottle to own and savor to the last drop.

The Story of Duncan Taylor

Duncan Taylor & Company has ownership of one of the largest privately-held collections of rare scotch whisky casks. The company has been “laying down” casks from premium Scottish distilleries for decades and has, in recent years, made its branded products available to whisky connoisseurs throughout the World.

Duncan Taylor has its origins in Glasgow where the company was initially a merchant and broker of Scotch Whisky casks within the Industry. Devotion to the principle of providing only the finest casks to be filled at Scotland’s leading distilleries has been a key feature of the company’s history and this tradition of building an outstanding portfolio of only the finest scotch whiskies is being maintained to this day by the current owners.

When the company moved its headquarters to the North East of Scotland, close to Speyside – Scotland’s largest whisky producing region – it also took the decision to focus on the production and marketing of its own brands and to cease the “brokering” of whisky in cask form to Distillery companies and Independent bottlers.

The company now has an established design, marketing and production operation and has complete control of the entire production process from cask selection and management, through “in-house” product and packaging design to its own “under bond” bottling facilities. Rigorous quality control procedures are in-place throughout the company’s systems to ensure that the Duncan Taylor ethic of unrivalled quality continues to be integral to the high reputation enjoyed by the company’s award winning brands.

 

Cheers,

Coupled with the mastery of the blender, they ensure the silky smoothness and distinctive flavors of Kavalan whisky. The first bottle of Kavalan was released in December 2008 and now it is the best-selling expression. The recipe of classic Kavalan is complex and contains different types of casks- fresh bourbon, fresh sherry and refill casks rendering the spirit a multilayer of fruity and floral notes.

Kavalan, the earliest tribe that inhabited Yilan, represents sincerity, honesty, and the spirit of step-by-step cultivation. Kavalan distillery continues the tradition of passionate commitment to creating the premium whisky.

 

The Current Kavalan Whisky Offerings at

Lukas Liquor Superstore

 

Kavalan King Car Conductor Single Malt Whisky

89.5 Points – Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2014

King Car single malt whisky is one of our 3 latest releases. We would like to make the flavor to the fullest and most rounded possible. And this time, because we would like to retain most of the flavors, the alcoholic strength is raised to 46% ABV! This is the first expression launched in the name of King Car which is the name of the Group. The Chairman of the group, Mr. TT Lee, would like to have a single malt whisky that can also represent the company to show the kind of diversity, multi-area of business that we do, and this King Car single malt (a.k.a. Conductor) can truly represent the Group with its complex flavors, delicate aromas and multi-layers of background fruitiness!

 

Kavalan Solist ex-Bourbon Cask Whisky

93 Points – Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2014

Kavalan Solist ex-Bourbon is a delightfully complex, multi-dimensional single malt whisky, with vanilla, fruit and coconut highlights. Matured in hand selected American ex-Bourbon casks, the whisky is available at cask strength and non-chill-filtered hence retains the fuller flavor of the natural single malt whisky. 

Best Rest of the World Single Malt Whisky 2010

Gold Medal – International Spirits Challenge’s 2010.

Kavalan Sherry Cask Whisky

95 Points – Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2014

The process water is drawn from the springs in the Snow Mountain and Central Mountains imparting a smooth and creamy mouth feel to the whisky. Matured in oloroso sherry casks in special editions, Kavalan Solist Sherry is bottled by hand at the distillery, without any coloring, chill-filtration, and thus a truly “single single malt whisky” as described by some! It is a naturally smooth and rich whisky with a complex character.

Gold San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2013

Best Rest of the World Single Malt Whisky 2011 at World Whisky Awards.

Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique Cask

93 Points – Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2014

Vinho is fully matured in used American oak wine barrels that have been toasted and recharred in a way that brings out fruity vanilla notes from the whisky and wood overlaid on a delicate background of complex fruitiness.

The oak casks are made from American oak that has been seasoned in the open air for at least 24 months. The oak is slow grown that results in a greater release of flavors into the whisky. This reduces the astringent effect of tannins and releases more vanilla spiciness and hints of herbs such as dill and lemon grass. The result is softness and added complexity.

 Cheers,

-Adam M England
