Anderson Valley Briney Melon Gose | Boonville, California
4.2% ABV. RateBeer 95. Born from our passion for experimentation, our Briney Melon Gose boasts a thirst-quenching tartness that is perfectly balanced by subtle watermelon flavors and aromas. Gentle additions of sea salt create a refreshing harmony between the acidity and fruity sweetness leading to clean, dry finish. Pair with Grilled Chicken or Fish, Salads, Chevre.

The name says it all. That simple. No really, that simple. Ginger drops of heaven, creamy smooth wheat. Now go out and live!

Victory Golden Monkey | Downingtown, Pennsylvania
Belgian-Style Tripel. 9.5 % ABV. Strong and sensual, this golden Belgian-style ale glows with goodness.

Considerable depth of character with abundant, herbal, fruity notes make this one to savor. Pair with Sheeps’ milk cheeses and seafood.–From their Website

Weyerbacher Blithering Idiot Barley Wine | Easton, Pennsylvania
ABV 11.1%. RateBeer 94 overall, 78 style. Blithering Idiot, 11.1% ABV, is brewed in the British tradition of balanced, hearty ales. It’s a deep-copper ale with notes of date and fig. The finish is warm and fruity and begs for the next sip. Enjoy Blithering Idiot in a brandy snifter or wine glass with full-flavored meats and cheeses or as an after dinner drink. This wonderful brew is available year-round. Lay a few down. Aging only helps a barleywine develop more complexity. This fine ale will keep for years.We feel comfortable setting our “Best By” date out to five years beyond the bottling date.–From their Website
Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout | Kalamazoo, Michigan
RateBeer100 overall, 100 style. ABV 6%. Kalamazoo Stout represents stouts in the Bell’s year-round roster, offering a blend of dark chocolate and coffee flavors with just a hint of brewer’s licorice. One of our oldest recipes, it balances a significant hop presence against the roast malt body.–From their Website
Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout | Longmont, Colorado
ABV 6 %. RateBeer 95 overall. 95 style. Dark & delicious, America’s great milk stout will change your perception about what a stout can be. Pouring hard out of the bottle, Milk Stout Nitro cascades beautifully, building a tight, thick head like hard whipped cream. The aroma is of brown sugar and vanilla cream, with hints of roasted coffee. The pillowy head coats your upper lip and its creaminess entices your palate. Initial roasty, mocha flavors rise up, with slight hop & roast bitterness in the finish. The rest is pure bliss of milk chocolate fullness.–From their Website
