SAISON 6.5% ABV
BRASSERIE DUPONT // TOURPES, BELGIUM
**Current Good Pours Beer**
This is officially a top 5 desert island beer for me. Light bodied, with a clean, dry, herbal finish all packaged in a beautiful pale golden color with a tall sturdy heady of foam. The list of foods to pair with this beer is lengthy and includes such delicious things as a nutty aged parmesan, white fish, creamy pasta dishes or rustic herbed chicken. It is both casual and refined, a quality that resonates my favorite elements of beer. Brewed at a small farmhouse brewery in Tourpes, Belgium, it was first introduced into the US market by Don Feinberg and Wendy Littlefield through their import company Vanberg and DeWulf in the early 1980s. Don and Wendy went on to help found Brewery Ommegang and are largely responsible for the availability of many high quality Belgian beers in the United States.
BELGIAN STYLE WHITE ALE 5.2% ABV
BREWERY OMMEGANG // COOPERSTOWN, NY
Brewery Ommegang produces some of the most high quality and true to style Belgian beer in the country. From the start they have had roots to traditional Belgian beer with the Duvel Moortgat family having been involved from the start and now the principal owner of the brewery. Witte is a classic Belgian style white ale brewed with coriander and sweet orange peel which brings zesty citrus and herbal notes to the party. Highly crushable in the most casual and pontoon of scenarios, but can also be found on the the dinner table of a 4 star restaurant alongside a plate of mussels, scallops or some gooey cheese.
Old Engine Oil
SCOTTISH BLACK ALE 6% ABV
HARVIESTOUN BREWERY // CLACKMANNASHIRE, SCOTLAND
Pouring at a solid 5W-20, this rich black ale will blot out your thirst. Despite it's opaque appearance, it is not overwhelming on the palate. The addition of oats adds a silky mouthfeel and softens the otherwise bitter notes from the heavily roasted barley. Be sure to try the other Harviestoun offerings including their Ola Dubh series which take more robust black ales and age them in Highland Park whisky barrels.
BARREL AGED SOUR SAISON 5.2% ABV
FAIR STATE BREWING CO-OP // MINNEAPOLIS, MN
Pucker up, buttercup. BFDP is earthy and funky, yet bright, and tangy, representing the high quality barrel aging and blending program that Fair State has developed. Beers aged from 4 to 12 months are combined to create the perfect balance of characteristics from the wild yeast and barrels. It might get old saying this, but this style is really one of my favorites. The base saison is dry, peppery with a delicate malt body leaving it to be highly refreshing but distinctive. Aging in barrels adds a layer of intrigue by bringing other elements of taste to the party. I find myself searching out a wheel of brie cheese at the moment...be right back.
Fear. Movie. Lions
DOUBLE IPA 8.5% ABV
STONE BREWING CO // ESCONDIDO, CA
I can imagine the collective groan and eye rolling taking place at Stone HQ when the beer world started going gaga for hazy New England style IPAs. The inevitable questions rolled in as all the big players began hazing it up, "What about Stone? When are they going to jump on the bandwagon?" True to their contrarian nature, Stone has held out on following this very distinct fad. While it's easy to knock the groupthink and herd mentality of the trend of hazy IPAs, the well made examples are outrageously delicious. I'm thankful to see Stone making an entry, mostly because it tastes amazing, bursting with juiciness from Mosaic and Loral hops, but also because of their snark. Fear. Movie. Lions = FML, get it?
Bent Hop Golden IPA
AMERICAN IPA 6.2% ABV
BENT PADDLE BREWING CO // DULUTH, MN
One of the best exports from Duluth has become Bent Paddle beer, and Bent Hop is their shining star. Zesty, citrus forward hops arrive first in the aroma, and are supported just enough by a mellow malt body. The finish is dry, but not punishing, encouraging repeat sips until your glass somehow finds itself empty time and time again. Our current keg was filled on July 2nd, so some enjoy the freshness.
PILSNER W/ LIME 5.3% ABV
UINTA BREWING CO // SALT LAKE CITY, UT
It's ok to have fruit in your beer. A crisp, clean pilsner with a strong punch of lime is just what you'll need to cut the heat in all the many summer outdoor activities you'll get up to. Uinta has brought the fruit throughout their lineup using peaches, grapefruit, mango, grapes, and even gooseberries. In all of their examples, they have been able to highlight the characteristics of the fruit without compromising on the style of the beer, and this one is another winner. You'll be tempted to salt the rim.
*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.
