New Beer from Prairie, Founders, Abita, and more

founders

FOUNDERS CURMUDGEON
Think classic seafaring ports, local pubs and weathered old fishermen. This old ale is brewed with molasses and an insane focus on the malt bill, then oak-aged. The result is a strong, rich, malty delight that’s deceptively smooth and drinkable.

FOUNDERS RUBAEUS
Not another boring summer wheat beer or lemonade shandy—Rübæus is Founders’ way to celebrate the season’s warmest months. Optimizing the flavor of fresh raspberries added at multiple stages during fermentation, this stunning berry red masterpiece is the perfect balance of sweet and tart. No question about it, with a hefty malt bill and 5.7% ABV, this beer is 100% Founders.

PRAIRIE VOUS FRANCAIS
Prairie-Vous Francais and it is a Farmhouse ale conditioned with brettanomyces bruxellensis. This beer uses barley, oats and wheat as well as Saaz hops. Look for this beer to be package din 750ml bottles and the beer comes in at 4.4% ABV

PRAIRIE ELIZA5BETH
Eliza5beth is a golden farmhouse ale that we aged on apricots to allow sourness and light fruit flavors to add complexity to the beer.

VANBERG & DEWULF
Lambics are truly the “wines” of the beer world. With wine one speaks of “gout de Terroir” because the land so influences a wine’s flavor. With Lambics, one must speak of “gout de Tonneau SM“ because each cask (tonneau) produces a lambic that matures and tastes different. Blending these Tonneau is such an art that there exist independent Geuzestekkerij (blenders) who buy young Lambic then age and bottle it under their own name. Lambickx™ is Vanberg & Famille’s brand of hand-selected and blended lambics. Every Lambic with the Lambickx™ name is made from casks personally tasted and chosen by Don Feinberg, one of the first importers of Belgian beer to America and founder of the first Belgian-only brewery in the U.S. Don chooses his Lambics for their complexity, brilliance and drinking excellence both by themselves and as exquisite accompaniments to food.

PREARIS GRAND CRU AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS
Exlusive brew: Préaris Quadrupel 2013 version aged for 10 months in Bourbon barrels from Makers mark. Limited to 2700 bottles of 375ml

seasonal

ARCADIA WHITSUN
Brewed in the style of a mid-19th century English Festival Ale, this unfiltered wheat beer displays a translucent orange color topped with a creamy, white head. Wheat enhances the mouthfeel of the beer and produces pleasant bread-like notes while Michigan honey provides a caramelized sweetness in the flavor profile. This beer is spiced with orange peel and coriander and small amounts of three hop varieties pleasantly counterbalances the sweetness.

ABITA STRAWBERRY LAGER
Ripe, red Louisiana strawberries are harvested at the peak of the season in the early morning chill. The scent of the juicy red Ponchatoula berries fills the air as they’re picked and pressed for Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager. The end result is a light, crisp lager with just a hint of strawberry sweetness.

BOFFERDING PILSNER
The national beer of Luxembourg.

Breaker Bourbon Whiskey

 Breaker Bourbon Whiskey

Californian Bourbon

Breaker Bourbon Whisky is a new American bourbon from the first craft distillery in the golden hills of California’s Central Coast. Our Master Distiller blends each small batch from only eight carefully hand chosen barrels that have been aged for at least five years. This ensures that each bottle is produced with an uncompromising attention to detail and taste. Inspired by the sublime and elusive sets at El Capitan and other local beaches, Breaker embodies that sense of perfection and freedom.

The Whiskey

A base of corn, rye and malted barley

Twice distilled in a copper still

Aged for five or more years

First bourbon hand-crafted, blended and bottled in Southern California since Prohibition

Tasting Notes

“Vanilla, honey, a hint of molasses, dark chocolate and just a whiff of campfire smoke. Spicy cinnamon balanced by honey underneath with vanilla and a touch of molasses cookies. Wood, corn and lovely hot spices. Deep complex barrel notes with just a hint of corn mustiness. Earthy nose. Ash, campfires, smoky. Palate is balanced and spicy.” – per the 2014 SAN FRANCISCO WORLD SPIRITS COMPETITION

Backbone Uncut Bourbon Whiskey

New Spirits Release at Lukas Liquor Superstore

Backbone “Uncut” Bourbon Whiskey

 Backbone Bourbon Uncut Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Uncut Whiskey

Backbone Bourbon is a true uncut whiskey. Its quality comes from its youthful vigor and the purity of tasting a barrel strength whiskey. This whiskey is distilled in Lawrenceburg, Indiana and is bottled in small batches in Bardstown, Kentucky.

Backbone Bourbon is meant to be sipped and savored.  It was developed with the discerning bourbon drinker in mind. Many types of bourbon available on the market today are “cut” with water to a specific proof.  This is done for good reason but we feel that a good part of the whiskey’s character is lost during this process. Bourbon matures in oak barrels and takes years to evolve.  During this time, it develops character.  It is molded by the quality of ingredients and the barrel in which it was aged.  We feel this is the backbone of the whiskey and we want to preserve this originality and purity.

 We also want to give consumers the choice of how strong they want to drink their bourbon.  We recommend adding water or ice blocks to get it to your desired level of strength. But more than just a sipper, Backbone makes an ideal ingredient for the increasing number of cocktails using Bourbon as an anchor spirit.

Cheers,

-Adam M England
