Bell’s “Best Brown Ale”

Style: American Brown Ale

ABV: 5.8%

Notes: Bell’s autumn seasonal is a little different than what you would normally find from a craft brewery’s fall lineup. This traditional American Brown Ale isn’t spiced or sweetened, but rather kept alone as is. As the leaves start to change color so do our palates, and Larry Bell’s intent is to offer the public an approachable, smooth, transitioning weather beverage. With hints of caramel and cocoa, the malt body has depth to stand up to cool weather, but does not come across as heavy. This balancing act is aided by the generous use of American hops.

Bell's Octoberfest Bottles

Bell’s “Octoberfest Beer”

Style: Oktoberfest

ABV: 5.5%

Notes: One thing about Bell’s is that whatever they make has a textbook approach with perfect execution. They follow their stellar consistency with brewing Oktoberfest Beer, a six week long fermenting project that falls in line with anything brewed from the homeland. Gentle herbal hop aromatics lead way into a lightly toasted amber base, making this a perfect choice for fall festivities.


Bell’s “Special Double Cream Stout”

Style: Sweet Stout

ABV: 6.1%

Notes: Bell’s Special Double Cream Stout has such a complex combination of specialty roasted malts that most people think this is brewed as a traditional milk stout, when in fact no dairy products are in the beer, just brewing excellence. Double Cream will drink like liquid silk while the rich mocha and espresso flavors burst on the palate. Dark and sweet tones intermingle with a soft, roasty finish.

Style: Oktoberfest

ABV: 5.5%

Notes: Port City’s Oktoberfest is a traditional Marzen-style lager, brewed entirely with German malts and hops. This beer is a brilliant amber with gently sweet flavors of crusty bread, leading to a clean, dry finish punctuated by a touch of noble hops. Served in the Keller/Zwickel style, Port City’s fall seasonal is unfiltered and completely naturally carbonated so, in other words, their Oktoberfest is full-on authentic.

BrewDog “Cocoa Psycho”

BrewDog Can Image Cocoa Psycho.jpg

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

ABV: 10%

Notes: Welcome to the world of Cocoa Psycho, a liquid dimension where pure indulgence reigns. 18th century Imperialism meets 21st century optimism, and decadence meets détente in this bitter-sweet psychosis of a stout. Silky smooth coffee beans, chocolatey cocoa nibs and dark malts combine to excess with infusions of vanilla pods, all resting on a toasted oak chip backbone. Eventually, you’ll come face-to-face with the madness required to make this beer; a kind of insanity that would have made Rasputin himself proud. Cocoa Psycho, liquid decadence for the people.  

 

BrewDog “Cybernaut”

BrewDog Can Image Cybernaut.jpg

Style: Session IPA

ABV: 4.5%

Notes: Say hello to this all new New England IPA. BrewDog cranked up the wheat and oats and turned down the ABV, creating a hazy equilibrium. This is a beer that has all of the taste of a NEIPA but allows a more sessionable delivery. Stone fruits collide – mango, peach, and apricot, layered over a cosmos of cut grass and pine dust notes. Smooth, fresh, and juicy, with a deft finish. Cybernaut, a brave new world of possibilities.

 

DuClaw “Regular Beer”

Style: American Pale Lager

ABV: 5.8%

Notes: 1623’s Raspberry Blonde is brewed to welcome warmer months. Vienna malt boosts this beer’s body and color. Raspberries add a balance sweetness and tartness, plus the perfect hue. Simple and approachable, like raspberry jam spread on crackers. Finally a beer you can serve with tea!

Flying Dog “Tiki Leaks Mai Tai Blonde”

Style: American Blonde Ale

ABV: 7.8%

Notes: Long walks on the beach aren’t really Brian’s thing. Whispering sweet nothings into the brewmaster’s ear about his love and affection for tiki drinks? No need to DTR there. He was hooked…line, sinker, and tiny umbrella. Pineapple, tangerine, lime juice, hibiscus flowers, and lactose become one with Galaxy hops for an exotic island getaway. 


Stone Brewing “Notorious P.O.G. Berliner Weisse”

ST Brews News Notorious POG.png

Style: Berliner Weisse

ABV: 4.7%

Notes: Stone had plenty of fan-favorite beers over the years, but few have garnered the cult – like adoration of this one. Stone Notorious P.O.G. was originally brewed at their Liberty Station brewhouse in San Diego, as a collaboration with Jonah Ray. It’s a tribute to the passion fruit, orange and guava juice (P.O.G.) he grew up drinking in Hawaii. This Berliner Weisse-style ale is loaded with the aforementioned trifecta of fresh, tropical fruits, making for a unique flavor that’s tart and refreshing yet deeply rich and complex. It’s as ridiculously tasty as it deliciously unique.
