  Horny Devil ● Belgian Style Golden Ale 10% ABV ● 25 IBU BARB /
  Horny Devil is our interpretation of a Belgian-style Golden Ale. Brewed with authentic Belgian ingredients including candi sugar and a Trappist yeast strain, its fruity and spicy aromas include notes of orange, banana, and peppercorns. Coriander seeds add refreshing citrus notes which meld seamlessly with the beer’s delicate malt. Horny Devil finishes with a lively carbonation and a refreshingly dry finish.

Avery ● Boulder, CO
  21st Anniversary ● Imperial India Style Brown Ale 8.3% ABV /
  For those of you following our saga of 21 years, we FINALLY broke ground on our long planned and much needed Taj Mahal! An event of this magnitude deserved a unique hop bomb to toast with.

  Thunder…. BIRD!
Bell’s Brewery ● Galesburg, MI
Octoberfest ● Octoberfest 5.9% ABV /
  Crafted as a flavorful session beer, Bell’s Octoberfest Beer is perfect for a week-long wedding celebration in Germany or the start of the Michigan autumn. As with Bell’s Lager Beer, Octoberfest spends a full six weeks maturing in the fermentation vessels. Unlike its cousin, Octoberfest trades in the assertive hop presence for a focus on a light caramel malt note, lending body without too much sweetness.
Big Sky Brewing ● Missoula, MT
  Bobo’s Robust Porter ● Porter 6.2% ABV BARBBP /
  According to Montana legend, deep in the expanse of the Bob Marshal Wilderness there lives a small band of rugged and ferocious…. Chihuahuas Bobo is the packs’ Alpha Male, and in a word he is ROBUST. So naturally we thought he deserved his own delicious Robust Porter A small bottle with big flavor! Brewed with 6 different malts & generously hopped. Robust doesn’t really begin to describe this beer. Smooth chocolate flavors with hints of coffee, caramel, and vanilla. Hop presence is copious and is matched by rich malt flavors.
  Power Wagon Spring ● Wheat wine 11% ABV /
  Hoppy Wheat Wine brewed with Honey. Silver medal winner at GABF
Destihl ● Bloomington, IL
  Flanders Red ● Sour Red Ale 6.1% ABV BARB /
  Flanders Red is an acidic, sour ale with an initial impression of tart cherries and sour candy that dissipates into a complex palate displaying both a sharp lactic sourness with a backbone of caramel and biscuit malt profiles and minimal hop character. The dry, wine-like finish accentuates the complex malt profile and bright fruit notes showcased in this brilliant red colored hybrid of a modern Flanders and German-style sour.
Dogfish Head ● Milton, DE
  Festina Peche ● Berliner Weisse 4.5% ABV ● 12 IBU BARBBP /
  A refreshing neo-BerlinerWeisse fermented with honest-to-goodness peaches to (get this!) 4.5% abv! Because extreme beers don’t have to be extremely boozy! Available in 4-pack and draft during the sweaty months.
Sadly, there are only two breweries left in Berlin still brewing the Berliner Weisse style which is characterized by its intense tartness. There were once over 70 breweries in Berlin alone making this beer! In addition to fermentation with an ale yeast, Berliner Weisse is traditionally fermented with lactic cultures to produce its acidic or green apple-like character. It is delicately hopped with a pale straw color and served as an aperitif or summertime quencher. To soften the intense sourness, Berliner Weisse is traditionally served with a dash of essence of woodruff or raspberry syrup.
Dragoon Brewing ● Tucson, AZ
The Dos ● Russian Imperial Stout 10.4% ABV ● 92 IBU /
  The Dos is the second incarnation of our Russian Imperial Stout, brewed annually in celebration of our anniversary. It weighs in at 10.4% abv — with a full body, and a complex flavor profile. It’s a little spicy (thanks to the rye malt), a little coffee-like (from the roasted malts) and a little toffee-like (thanks to a blend of crystal malts and piloncillo, a raw mexican cane sugar). It’s real big, real black, and real tasty. Hope you enjoy!
Firestone Walker ● Paso Robles, CA
  Bretta Weisse ● Berliner Wheat Weisse 4.9% ABV ● 4.5 IBU /
  Imagine yourself in Berlin’s Tiergarten enjoying this refreshing Berliner Weisse inspired beer on a warm summer’s day. Bretta Weisse honors the traditional beverage of the great Prussian capital, Berlin. Fredrick-the-Great was trained to brew it, and Napoleon’s troops called it “The champagne of the North”. Firm estery notes of stone and tropical fruit lead to Funky, yeasty, citrus aromas. Soft cereal and Oak flavors are enveloped by a firm acidity and tartness. The finish is dry and crisp; a thoroughly enjoyable beverage. At 4.9% ABV, one could imagine enjoying several Bretta Weisse’s in the Tiergarten, or anywhere else. This Berliner Weisse inspired Wheat beer was aged in 1700 gal French Oak horizontal foeders for 8 months.
Four Peaks ● Tempe, AZ
  Barrel Aged RAJ ● India Pale Ale 6.9% ABV /
  A strong India Pale Ale that is marked by intense hop flavor and high hop bitterness. This style of beer needed the high hop and alcohol to survive the trip around Africa. Medium to light body and very bitter. Aged in Four Roses Kentucky Bourbon for at least 4 months
Green Flash ● Vista, CA
Green Bullet ● Triple IPA 10.1% ABV BARBBP /
  A full-bodied Triple IPA, Green Bullet combines New Zealand grown Pacific Gem and Green Bullet hops. Significant pine and citrus hoppiness hit the palate at first sip, accentuated by tropical notes of mango and pineapple, ending with a moderately aggressive, bitter finish.
Huisbrouwerij De Halve Maan ● Bruges, Belgium
  Straffe Hendrik Tripel ● Belgian Tripel 9% ABV BARB /
  Straffe Hendrik was an authentic Bruges’ Tripel beer: a strong and rich beer with lots of flavours (malt, caramel and hop) and 9% abv. In the past, lots of Bruges’ breweries produced a Tripel Style Bruges’ Ale, a “Brugse Tripel”. In fact, it was a local speciality. Today, Straffe Hendrik is the last authentic Bruges’ Tripel Beer. Straffe Hendrik is being brewed with a subtle mixture of 6 different kinds of malt. The taste is strong with a lot of hop (Saaz and Styrian Golding) of the best quality.
Iron Fist ● Vista, CA
Nelson The Impaler ● Pale Ale 5% ABV ● 28 IBU /
  Single-hop. Perhaps you’ve heard this term being thrown around lately, maybe wondering what exactly people are talking about. The idea is to create a beer with only one variety of hops so you can fully appreciate its flavors and complexities. We decided to make NELSON THE IMPALER using only the exceedingly rare and delicious Nelson Sauvin hops, grown exclusively in Nelson, New Zealand. Why? Because we can. Very light in color due to the use of almost exclusively Pilsner malt, intense grapefruit and hints of pineapple and mango make it surprisingly big on flavor with a refreshing, dry finish.
Notes: Single-hop Nelson pale. Tropical and grapefruit notes with light malt character
Left Coast ● San Clemente, CA
Super Juice ● Imperial IPA 10.9% ABV ● 110 IBU $6.50/10 oz.
  No commercial information available.
Left Hand Brewing ● Longmont, CO
Good JuJu ● Spice Ale 4.38% ABV ● 17 IBU BARB $6.00/16 oz.
  This beer is basically a pale ale brewed from a relative low gravity, with some of the hops which would normally be used in the beer replaced by freshly ground ginger root. The beer is light in body, lower in alcohol, has a distinct ginger aroma, and has a very crisp finish. It was initially brewed as a refreshing alternative to the plethora of wheat beers which are popular in the summertime, but popular demand turned it into a year round beer.
  Smoke Jumper ● Smoked Ale 9.8% ABV BARBBP /
  If you’ve been reading our newsletters, brewer Ro Guenzel gave you a flavor last month of what it took to brew this smoked Imperial Porter (singed hair, smoke in the eyes, sunburn, etc.) – all a labor of love. Available in beautiful 750mL bottles. The National Smokejumpers Association has made Smokejumper the “Official Beer” of their organization. So, here’s the smoke in your glass, not in the woods.
Logsdon ● Hood River, Oregon
Seizeon Bretta ● Saison / Farmhouse Ale 8% ABV ● 38 IBU /
  Seizoen Bretta (say-soon’-brett’-ah) GOLD at the Great American Beer Festival, 2012
This unfiltered bottle of seizoen, with it’s beeswax seal, is naturally refermented and carbonated with select yeast strains, producing fruity and spicy flavors that are balanced by hops and soft malt character.

Knotty Pine ● American Pale Ale 5.4% ABV BARB /
  No commercial information available.
New Belgium ● Fort Collins, CO
  Lips of Faith – Coconut Curry Hefeweizen ● Spice Ale 8% ABV BARBBP /
  Coconut Curry Hefeweizen has been pouring down the history of American Home Brewing for many years, from the legendary Charlie Papazian to the 2010 National Homebrewer, Remi Bonnart. The latter helped New Belgium brew this hazy, straw-colored gem to life. The aroma is bold and big with coconut and curry tones and a hint of banana from the hefe yeast. With a vast spice list of cinnamon, coriander, fenugreek, ginger, kaffir lime, and cayenne pepper this beer carries a bit of heat but the alcohol soothes the finish. Coconut Curry Hefe will leave an inquisitive smile on the drinker’s mug.
  Snapshot ● Wheat Ale 5% ABV ● 13 IBU $5.00/10 oz.
  Snap! You just captured an unfiltered wheat beer full of refreshment and a flash of tart at the finish. Smile-inducing aromas of citrus hops jump from the nose, accompanied by the sweetness of coriander and grains of paradise. Brewed with wheat and pale malt, Snapshot pours a hazy, lemon-yellow with bright-white lacing. But the real enticement is the snap of tart. New Belgium’s affinity for sour beers led to the in-process blending of lactobacillus to pucker up Snapshot’s base. An extra step to acidify and beautify and get this beer ready for its close up.
New Belgium/Cigar City ● Ft. Collins, CO
  Anaheim & Marash Chile ale ● Chili beer 8.5% ABV RB $6.50/10 oz.
  We’re about to light up Florida with this Cigar City collaborative brew. Our Belgian yeast tangos with Anaheim and Marash peppers along with loads of citrusy hops to create an ale full of spice. Aged on Spanish cedar to salute our mutual love for wood!

  Traitor Joe ● Black IPA /
  No commercial information available.
Odell Brewing ● Fort Collins, CO
Cutthroat ● Porter 5.1% ABV ● 43 IBU BARBBP $6.00/16 oz.
  Not quite a stout but definitely no lightweight, Cutthroat Porter is smooth and robust. Inspired by the classic London porters, we use dark roasted malts to create a deep, rich color and flavor that hint at chocolate and coffee. We named it Cutthroat Porter as our tribute to the Colorado state fish – with its own rich heritage and unmistakable dark coloring. And while we’re big fans of small batches, here’s to the currently threatened Cutthroat population reaching mass quantities.
Ommegang ● Cooperstown, NY
Witte ● Belgian White Ale 5.2% ABV ● 11 IBU BARBBP /
  Ommegang Witte, a traditional Belgian-style wheat ale with whispers of sweet orange and a touch of tart lemon. Soft and seductive, Ommegang Witte is this summer’s version of spicy intrigue and refreshing flavor.
Oskar Blues ● Lyons, CO
  Gordon (G’Knight) ● Double Red Ale 8.7% ABV ● 60 IBU BARBBP /
  Gordon is a hybrid version of strong ale, somewhere between an Imperial Red and a Double IPA. We make it with six different malts and three types of hops, then dry-hop it with a mutha lode of Amarillo hops. It is 8.7% alcohol by volume, and has 85 International Bittering Units.
It features a gooey, resiny aroma and a luscious mouthfeel. Gordon is brewed with dash of chocolate malt in it, to round out its load of hops and balance the beer. The result is an assertive yet exceptionally smooth version of strong beer.
We brew Gordon in tribute to the late Gordon Knight. In addition to opening some of Colorado’s first microbreweries, Knight was a Vietnam vet, grade-A citizen, and huge promoter of craft beer. He lost his life in 2002 while fighting a wild fire outside of Lyons, Colorado.
Originally our winter seasonal beer, it has become a cult favorite of extreme-beer lovers, so we now brew occasional batches of Gordon throughout the year. Released in bottles in 2003 and 2004, Gordon is now sold in four packs of hand-labeled cans and on draft in select markets.
Sam Adams ● Boston, MA
  Samuel Adams Oktoberfest ● Oktoberfest/Marzen 5.3% ABV BARBBP /
  The first thing you notice when pouring a glass of this seasonal beer is the color. Samuel Adams® Octoberfest has a rich, deep golden amber hue which itself is reflective of the season. Samuel Adams® Octoberfest is a malt lover’s dream, masterfully blending together four roasts of barley to create a delicious harmony of sweet flavors including caramel and toffee. The beer is kept from being overly sweet by the elegant bitterness imparted by the German Noble hops. Samuel Adams® Octoberfest provides a wonderful transition from the lighter beers of summer to the winter’s heartier brews.
SanTan Brewing ● Chandler, AZ
  Oktoberfest ● Amber Ale 5.5% ABV ● 30 IBU RB /

Ska Brewing ● Durango, CO
Modus Hoperandi ● IPA 7.6% ABV BARBBP $6.00/16 oz.
  A mixture of citrus and pine that will remind you of the time you went on a vision quest with your Native American cousin and woke up in a pine-grove full of grapefruit trees. Bitter and hoppy, with a surprisingly smooth finish.

American IPA featuring Chinook and Citra hops and honey.
The Bruery ● Placentia, CA
Hottenroth ● Berliner Weisse 3.1% ABV ● 2 IBU BARB /
  Brewed in memory of my Grandparents (Fred and Sarah Hottenroth), this tart German-style Berliner Weisse is as authentic as it gets. We used lactobacillus and a hint of brettanomyces to sour this very unusual, low gravity wheat beer. To cut the tartness for those with sweeter tastes, raspberry or woodruff syrup is a traditional way to sweeten the beer. Almost an extinct style, we hope to help revive the Berliner Weisse in memory of two great people.
Uinta ● Salt lake City, UT
  Bristlecone ● Brown Ale 4% ABV BARBBP /13 oz.
  No bristlecones were harmed in the production of this award winning beer. Deep chocolate brown and an amber head, Bristlecone Brown Ale is a seasonal beer and available for a short time. We chose the name as a tribute to the regal Great Basin Bristlecone pine. Among these stately survivors is the 4,765 year-old Methuselah, the oldest living inhabitant of North America. Its exact location is kept secret as an older relative nicknamed “Prometheus” was unfortunately cut down in 1964. This particular long-living species is typically found in the higher elevations of Nevada, California and Utah’s Wasatch Range. Due to cold temperatures, high winds, and dry soils, these pines grow very slowly.
Victory ● Downingtown, PA
  Headwater Pale ● Pale Ale 5.1% ABV /
  Malted barley, hops and yeast are the building blocks of beer. But none of these elements would exist without water, the essence of life. The waters that feed our brewery begin just over a dozen miles away, making for spectacularly pure and vital water for brewing. Having worked with watershed advocacy groups since our inception, we value our headwaters, our source, in many ways. We think you’ll value them as well when you taste this firmly crisp and aromatically arousing pale ale.
  Storm King ● Imperial Stout 9.1% ABV /
  Emerging from the deepest shades of darkness, a rolling crescendo of flavors burst forth from this robust stout. The thundering, hoppy appeal of Storm King subsides into the mellow subtleties of roasted malt, exhibiting an espresso-like depth of character in its finish. An exquisite blend of imported malts and whole flower American hops merge harmoniously in this complex ale. Discover the dark intrigue of Storm King, as it reveals the rich, substantial flavors that it holds within.
