A vanilla kiss in a rich, dark sea.
Destihl ● Bloomington, IL
Flanders Red ● Sour Red Ale 6.1% ABV BARB $8.00/10 oz.
  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 $6.00/13 oz.
  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.

It is generously hopped, with Northern Brewer, Simcoe and German Polaris. The result is a balanced and approachable amber, showcasing complex malt flavors nestled in a bed of earthy and fruity hoppy goodness.

Green Flash ● Vista, CA
Hop Head Red ● American Amber Ale 6% ABV BARBBP $5.50/16 oz.
  Medium bodied, golden to copper colored, with a strong hop and alchohol aroma. Tasting it was delicious. Despite the IBUs, the bitterness does not stick out more than a typical IPA does, a nice balance with the malts. After swallowing, it has the warmth and taste of the alchohol.
Hangar 24 ● Redlands, CA
ACBW Red Rye Ale ● Red Rye IPA 6.5% ABV ● 60 IBU $6.00/16 oz.
  Our Red Rye Ale is based on the very popular Redlands Red that we brewed last year, originally in celebration of our city’s 125th anniversary. To celebrate American Craft Beer Week 2014 we’ve taken that recipe and included a portion of Rye in the malt bill, adding some spice and crackery malt character. We dry-hopped it with Amarillo and Cascade, bringing classically American hop aromatics to the front. It pours a deep ruby red and boasts an ABV of 6.5%.
Ever since we brewed our Redlands Red people have been asking us to bring it back, but we knew that when we did, we wanted to go the extra mile. The added complexity of rye in the malt bill brings an added level of balance and complexity to a beer which is already becoming a Tasting Room favorite.
Harviestoun ● Alva, Scottland
  Ola Dubh 12 ● Old Ale 10.5% ABV BARB $8.00/10 oz.
  Consistent with the core Ola Dubh range, the 1991 Vintage is deep dark brown, dense and oily; the nose is redolent of soy and molasses with winey overtones and a gentle, earthy, hop aroma. The 1991 Vintage is somewhat sweeter than its counterparts and has delicious smoky-sherry notes on the palate, the flavours deriving at least as much from the whisky-infused-wood as the spirit itself. As expected from its higher strength, this is a bigger and bolder number than its siblings.
Historic ● Flagstaff, AZ
Undercover Cucumber ● Fruit Beer 5.2% ABV $6.00/16 oz.
  No commercial information available. Made with cucumber, basil and orange peel. notes of honey dew melon.
Lagunitas ● Petaluma, CA
SUCKS ● American Strong Ale 7.85% ABV BARBBP $6.00/10 oz.
  This sad holiday season we didn’t have the brewing capacity to make our favorite seasonal brew, the widely feared BrownShugga’ Ale. You see we had a couple of really good years (thank you very much) and so heading into this season while we are awaiting the January delivery of a new brewhouse we are jammin’ along brewing 80 barrels of IPA and PILS and such every 3 hours. A couple of months back we realized that since we can only brew a mere 60 barrels of Shugga’ every 5 hours, that we were seriously screwed. For every case of Shugga’ brewed, we’d short 3 cases of our favorite daily beers. It’s a drag. This year, we brewed something that we think is also cool and brews more like our daily brews. The new brewhouse will help insure this kind of failure never happens again. It’s a mess that we can not brew our BrownShugga’ this year and we suck for not doing it. There is nothing cool about screwing this up this badly and we know it. Maybe we can sue our own sorry selves. There is no joy in our hearts this holiday and the best we can hope for is a quick and merciful end. F*@& us. This totally blows. Whatever. We freaking munch moldy donkey butt and we just want it to be all over…
Left Hand Brewing ● Longmont, CO
Oktoberfest ● Marzen Lager 6% ABV ● 25 IBU BARB $6.00/16 oz.

Cool, open-fermentation develops a subtle elegance and drinkability suited to any festive occasion.
Sawtooth Nitro ● Extra Special Bitter 4.75% ABV BARBBP $5.50/16 oz.
  Sawtooth Ale is an English style Extra Special Bitter. It is an extremely well balanced beer, with significant hop character, medium body, and a maltiness which increases in evidence as the beer warms to its “proper” drinking temperature. . The water used is quite hard, bringing it to near Burton on Trent levels, keeping it true to the style. This gives it the appropriate character and improves the malt extract significantly.
Smoke Jumper ● Smoked Ale 9.8% ABV BARBBP $6.00/10 oz.
  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.

New Belgium ● Fort Collins, CO
  Lips of Faith – Coconut Curry Hefeweizen ● Spice Ale 8% ABV BARBBP $5.50/16 oz.
  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.
  Ranger IPA ● India Pale Ale 6.5% ABV ● 70 IBU BARBBP $5.50/16 oz.

In that spirit of adventure, Fifty Niner is a Golden Ale aged on oak staves and bottle conditioned with Brettanomyces, a yeast as wild as the new frontier. The lustrous golden brew shines with hints of lemon zest and pear accentuated by a rich vanilla and almond oak character and a subtle earthy spiced pineapple Brett finish.
Myrcenary ● Double IPA 9.3% ABV BARBBP $6.50/10 oz.
  Named for Myrcene, a component of essential oils in the hop flower, Myrcenary Double IPA is our tribute to those who revere the illustrious hop, and their unyielding exploit to craft hop forward beers.

Oskar Blues ● Lyons, CO
Gubna ● Imperial IPA 10% ABV ● 100 IBU BARBBP $6.50/10 oz.
  Emphasizing that complexity of character can arise from simple elements, this ale is made with 3 malts and 1 hop. Its light amber color and slightly spicy malt character are derived from the use of German Dark Munich Malt and Rye Malt respectively. North American 2-row barley combines with the other grains to lay the foundation for the hop onslaught to come. Summit hops are used exclusively in the boil for bitterness, flavor and aroma but it doesn’t end there. Post-fermentation dry hopping allows the 10% ABV monstrosity to gently coax the citrus rind and grapefruit aroma to join the 100 IBUs already present. This beer will greet you with a pungent citrus blast, provide a spicy yet round middle and finish with a brisk, clean bitterness.
Papago Brewing ● Scottsdale, AZ
Orange Blossom ● Mandarin Orange Hefeweizen 4.7% ABV BARBBP $6.00/16 oz.
  A Wheat Beer with mandarin orange and vanilla flavor, just like a creamsickle.
Renaissance ● Blenheim, New Zealand
Craftsman Chocolate Stout ● Oatmeal Chocolate Stout 4.9% ABV BARB $8.00/10 oz.
  For years fans of the Renaissance beers had been asking, “when are you guys going to do a Stout?” It was eventually decided that the effort Brian was putting into taking these pesky blighters out the back to give them a shoeing could be better used to actually make the aforementioned stout.
So we produced not only a Stout, but a Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, the Craftsman.
Craftsman is the ‘Big Brother’ to our popular Elemental porter. Building on the flavours given by the crystal, brown and black malts, we add a portion of organic rolled oats for a silky smooth mouthfeel, then added a small amount of cocoa nibs to the mash and brew kettle, plus a large addition of nibs to the fermentor. The beer that matured on those cocoa nibs has a lovely chocolate nose that melds beautifully with the coffee and hop notes in the beer. The resulting Stout has a full rounded palate with chocolate and roasted notes predominating and the depth of intensity that one expects from a Stout.
Sam Adams ● Boston, MA
Samuel Adams Oktoberfest ● Oktoberfest/Marzen 5.3% ABV BARBBP $5.00/16 oz.
  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.

  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.
