Alaskan Smoked Porter
The dark, robust body and pronounced smoky flavor of this limited edition beer make it an adventuresome taste experience. Alaskan Smoked Porter is produced in limited “vintages” each year and, unlike most beers, may be aged in the bottle, much like fine wine.

Firestone Walker Nitro Merlin
Our Velvet Merlin oatmeal stout has been transformed into a mindblowing mouthful known as Nitro Merlin Milk Stout. The new ingredient is lactose, a.k.a. milk sugar. When Velvet Merlin is brewed with milk sugar to create Nitro Merlin Milk Stout, the effect is similar to adding cream to your dark roasted coffee. The wizardry comes via “nitro,” the brewing nickname for nitrogen gas.

Firestone Walker Mocha Merlin
With an infusion of local roast coffee, a dash of cocoa nibs and touch of seasonal sorcery, our signature Velvet Merlin milk stout has been transformed into Mocha Merlin for fall and winter enjoyment. This beer is brewed with the Colombia La Granadilla blend from our friends and neighbors at HoneyCo Coffee Roasters. The Colombia La Granadilla coffee meshes perfectly with the chocolaty character from the cocoa nibs, providing an oatmeal stout experience like no other. A touch of lactose “milk sugar” provides suggestion of rounded sweetness on the finish.

Rare Beers From New Belgium, Boulevard, and Dogfish Head

New Belgium Le Terroir
Le Terroir is a french term meaning ‘of the earth’ and is frequently used to reference the natural, environmental conditions that affect beer. So it is with our Wood Cellar and the foeders in which Le Terroir is created. These oak barrels combine nature and craftsmanship to age our sour beer in varying temperatures, humidity and vibrations. Coupled with dry-hopping using fruit-forward and experimental hops, Le Terroir is a beer that rewards differently every time you experience it.

Three New Beers From Off Color

Now in stock…

Off Color Blueberries Feel Pain
Yeast is pretty magical. So imagine carefully harvesting yeast from the delicate skins of blueberries found on a small farm down the road from Virtue Farm. And then using it to create a wild ale. This new seasonal, dubbed Blueberries Feel Pain, was brewed a few days ago and, so far, the yeast is quite happy.

Off Color Le Woof
Inspired by our brewery puppy, Hops, Biere de Guard Dog seems sweet enough will a strong malt presence lead by Munich and Vienna malts. But at 7.3% ABV, it packs a bite. Just ask our delivery guy!

Off Color Waddle
A fest beer to celebrate the wedding of one of our favorite twenty employees! Brewed in the classic style of an Oktoberfest lager, except if you see it after October, then it is a Marzen.

Boulevard Love Child No 9

Now in stock…

Boulevard’s Love Child Series of wild ales are barrel-aged with such boisterous cultures as Lactobacillus and Brettanomyces. These wayward offspring can prove so complex that we employ gauges on the label to convey the intensity of three key personality traits, Funk, Sour and Fruit, presenting a picture of the blend at the time it was released. This beer will change as it ages, but don’t we all?

Ommegang Queen of the Seven Kingdoms

Boulevard Changeling
Changeling is an enchanting blend of dark sour ales aged in whiskey and wine barrels that were inoculated with Brettanomyces and lactobacillus. It pours a deep ruby color with touches of gold at the edges of the glass. Leading with plum and toasty malt, the flavor transmutes into a soft tartness, with notes of earthy, funky Brett and a touch of lingering caramel to create a delicate balance.
