PORTER SMOKED WITH ALDERWOOD 6.8%
ALASKAN BREWING CO // JUNEAU, AK
I’m not sure there is another American beer with as much hardware from the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) as this one. It has won nearly 20 medals at the GABF, including a stretch in the early 90s where it won gold 4 years in a row! They have been producing Smoked Porter for 30 years, longer than most American breweries have been around, and it’s legend looms large. Enough of the backstory, how does the damned thing taste?! Smooth, silky smokiness is present in both aroma, flavor and finish, while not being intense or aggressive. The dark chocolate, roasty body provides enough support to carry the smoke, yet not so rich as to be a sipping beer. Alder wood is famous for being the smoking wood of choice for Alaskan salmon, so the flavor may be familiar if you are a smoked fish aficionado. Smoked Porter ages extremely well thanks to the preservative quality of the smoke, meaning that if you can secure a few bottles of this limited production, hide some away for a future treat. As the beer ages, the smoke softens, and melds with the sweet, dark fruit notes from the oxidizing malts to create a taste even more complex. I’ve even had this beer at over 10 years old, and it retains it’s character if properly stored. Enjoy this legendary treat while you can!
Special Double Cream Stout
BELL’S BREWERY // COMSTOCK, MI
This was one of the first dark beers I ever truly loved. Bell’s creates a beautifully dizzying array of dark winter treats. The Special Double Cream is part of the famous seasonal stout team including, Cherry Stout, Arabicadabra, Black Note and Expedition Stout. Despite the name, no dairy was harmed in the making of the beer, it’s sweetness comes from the rich malts used. Bittersweet dark chocolate, prunes, and a touch of dark roast coffee all come together to create a luxurious sipping experience. Highly recommend enjoying this near a window, watching some snowflakes fall in a cozy living room with a good book and some high quality dark chocolate.
BELGIAN STYLE AMBER ALE 5.5% ABV
3 SHEEPS BREWING CO // SHEBOYGAN, WI
A well made amber ale is a thing of beauty. This particular little number has an added layer of intrigue being fermented with a Belgian ale yeast. The combination of caramel and nutty malt tones become transformed into candied dark fruits when acted on by the distinctive yeast strain. It’s cheerfully full of flavors, lending to match up with all manner of holiday meals and treats, yet is highly drinkable if you just need a beer friend to enjoy an evening with. One of my favorite year-round offerings from right here in our home state of Wisconsin.
PILSENER STYLE LAGER 5.2%
GOOD CITY BREWING CO // MILWAUKEE, WI
We are happy to welcome one of Milwaukee’s newer breweries, Good City, recently available in our neck of the woods. The Pils is one of their staple year-round offerings, brewed as a bit of hybrid using American malts, German hops, and Bohemian yeast. Floral hops greet you up front, with a lightly sweet, delicate malt body leading you to a rather snappy dry finish. Pair this up with a savory selection of cured meats, hard cheeses, and olives (call it charcuterie if you’d like), then kick back, enjoy with some good company and Good City.
MILKSHAKE IPA 6.8%
ODELL BREWING CO // FORT COLLINS, CO
Within the hazy IPA craze is the sub-category of Milkshake IPAs. In addition to being hazy and unfiltered, lactose (milk sugar) joins the party to lend some velvety body and a touch of sweetness. Pouring an opaque light golden, similar in appearance to pineapple juice, it also smells the part with bright, fruity tropical hop aromas. It’s truly an evolution in the IPA category, capitalizing on the huge fruity aromas of the modern hop breeds while creating a mind bending drinking experience that blurs the line between beer and juice. This milkshake sure has been bringing all the boys to the yard!
Caribou Lake IPA
EARTH RIDER BREWING CO // SUPERIOR, WI
We’ve come to expect distinctive beers that are exceptionally well brewed from our friends at Earth Rider, and their IPA reflects this perfectly. The aroma is a battle between citrus rind and sticky pine, providing plenty of intrigue for hop lovers. Ample malts create a caramel, biscuit balance as well as a stiff alcohol content for a beer that you’ll want to drink a lot of. Drink smart and hold fast.
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.
