SIERRA NEVADA BREWING CO // CHICO, CA
Once again, the barometer of style popularity is reflected in the brewing choices of Sierra Nevada. They are still the standard bearers for American Craft Beer, having been one of the very first true craft breweries in the United States. They maintain relevant to this moment, despite all the ups and downs that the industry has seen over the decades. Many quality beer drinkers got their first taste of hoppy beer via Sierra Nevada’s iconic Pale Ale, which helped birth the appetite for the unique interpretations of IPAs that we see today, including this very beer, a Brut IPA. The Brut IPA trend began a couple of years ago on the heels of the haze craze, focusing not solely on massive hop aromas and juicy, nearly sweet finishes, but rather on a more refined take on the IPA. Brut takes cues from the world of Champagne, focusing on a very dry finish with almost no unfermented sugars present. Despite the dry finish, the beer isn’t strongly bitter, in fact the hops are fairly delicate; bright in the aroma and lending pleasant citrus and grassy notes to this very light bodied ale. The finish is very dry and clean, leaving your mouth thirsting for more. Find yourself some rich, creamy cheese and have a ball, no need for pinkies out here.
Life In The Clouds
HAZY IPA 6.1%
COLLECTIVE ARTS BREWING // TORONTO, CANADA
The current IPA “haze craze” has gone global, and this orange-juice-looking little beauty from north of the border is a great example. This isn’t our first run-in with the eclectic lineup of beers from Collective Arts, and this is another winner. Citrus zest, peach, and a bit of mango are some of the headlining aromas, with the graham cracker sweet malt body acting like a soft pillow supporting the hops. The silky smooth, mildly bitter finish comes undoubtedly from the addition of oats, a hallmark ingredient of the hazy IPA style. Maybe this could be called a new style with its Canadian roots, an I-P-eh? I like the sound of that.
BRAUEREI VON AYING // AYING, GERMANY
Celebrate the heart of winter in true German fashion with a proper Dopplebock from one of Bavaria’s finest breweries. Ayinger creates benchmark quality beers across the range of German beer styles, and Celebrator is no exception. Bocks are a style of strong lager produced seasonally to celebrate various holidays and occasions (Lentenbock, Maibock, Eisbock) with the Dopplebock being one of the most robust, historically called “liquid bread” due to its rich body. Caramel, prune, and toasted bread stand out in the aroma with a sturdy body that leads in sweet, but dries right out, with just a wisp of floral hops, and showcasing the quality of brewing with a clean, well attenuated (meaning there aren’t residual unfermented sugars floating around) finish. A true winter treat!
BELGIAN STYLE IMPERIAL STOUT 11.8%
WEYERBACHER BREWING CO // EASTON, PA
Here is one of the great, ironic beer names. This “wee” stout totes a hefty 11.8% ABV, that seems to defy the laws of brewing physics. It is quite inky black in color, but through the magic of Belgian yeast the otherwise viscous, rich body is thinned and feels spritely. Notes of cherries, dates, and sweet tobacco mix in with the bittersweet dark chocolate, to create a dark symphony. It’s hard to explain how easy this beer is to drink for such a robust recipe, so you’ll just have to come see for yourself.
Saison de Lis
BELGIAN STYLE SAISON W/ CHAMOMILE 5% ABV
PERENNIAL ARTISANAL ALES // ST. LOUIS, MO
How about a little burst of summer sunshine and warmth in the middle of a Wisconsin winter? Thankfully Perennial has just the ticket in the form of Saison de Lis, a year-round saison made with chamomile. Perennial has built a strong reputation around distinctive styles, drawing some notable inspiration from the Belgian brewing traditions. This palate pleaser is pale yellow in color, with a bright, herbal aroma that highlights the sweet, perfumey chamomile. Crackling dry, with a prickly carbonation make this a great refresher to accompany fatty snacks or meals. Pile up the cheese, salami, and olives; I’ll be right over.
PILSENER STYLE LAGER 5%
BENT PADDLE BREWING CO // MILWAUKEE, WI
One of the first beers released from Bent Paddle was this pilsener. To brew a pilsener is not very difficult, but to produce one that lives up to the standards of the style is very challenging. I would argue that more often than not, American produced pilseners fall short of the quality of traditional Czech or German staples. I’ve heard it said many times that you can judge the competency of a brewer by the quality of their pilsener. I think there is more to it than that, but would be willing to argue that any brewer worth their salt should be able to produce the style faithfully. What Bent Paddle has done with this beer is notable, not only producing a very tasty pilsener that would check all the boxes on the list of a purist, but to add their own distinct stamp on it. The iconic Saaz hops are present providing a bright, floral grassy quality, but aided with the mix of Sterling, lending just a touch of light citrus, and all laying over a super clean malt body, and a finish that showcases the high quality brewing water from Lake Superior. You can sit with this and pick out its highlights, or just kick back and enjoy the refreshment, the hallmarks of a high quality beer. Prost!
AMERICAN KETTLE SOUR W/ RASPBERRIES 4.4% ABV
BENT PADDLE BREWING CO // DULUTH, MN
**Current wild/sour beer**
Cheery, bracing, and refreshing can be just the ticket to combat dreary fall days. Thankfully, Bent Paddle brewed up their first production sour beer to provide us with this spunky little number. Pouring an electric magenta, you’ll be similing before you’re sipping. The first sip showcases the ripe raspberries and their sweet, but tart personality. After the first half of the pint has vanished, you’ll be aware of the delicate cracker like malts that provide the structure and the slightly earthy, mineral notes from the lactic fermentation. This is a great candidate for a beer-mosa or as an excuse to enjoy some cheesecake for dessert.
*COLD BREWED COFFEE* NOT BEER
BLEND FROM DULUTH COFFEE CO // DULUTH, MN
Brewed cold, steeped for nearly 24 hours, and served on nitrogen gas. The mellow, low-acid brew accompanied by the creaminess of the nitrogen creates a roasty, smooth, delicate coffee experience. Try it straight up, as a coffee float with ice cream, or with whipped cream and your favorite flavors in Off The Rails. This is also the base for our iced coffee drinks.
