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: Fruit Beer

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!

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.

HS Tap Label Red Flag.jpg

Style: Flanders Red Ale

ABV: 8%

Notes: Brewed in the classic Flemish Red style, Red Flag is brewed in small batches on their 15 bbl brewhouse. Each batch is aged in stainless steel and then moved to bourbon and red wine barrels for further maturing. The barrels are then hand selected and blended to create the most complex and seductive sour ale possible. Red Flag is the first sour offering in the Uncharted Waters series. Deep ruby in color, this barrel-aged sour ale delights with sweet malt tones, complex fruit undertones and a deliciously tart finish.

Style: Gose

ABV: 4.5%

Notes: Sour ales and summertime go together! This gose is tart, refreshing, and is complimented with fresh mango and passionfruit. This beer is the same base as Monument City’s other current seasonal sour, Gose w/ Lemon & Lime, except this version has a more tropical and warm weather vibe to it.


Monument City “June Solstice Wheat IPA”

MCB Logo June Solstice (1).png

Style: American IPA

ABV: 6.5%

Notes: Wheat IPA? What is this 2014? Not quite. Some of you have been deceived in the latest hazy trend. While some of the small guys are kicking out murky, opaque, heavily dry-hopped New England IPAs, some of the bigger national craft brands are making “hazy” IPAs by leaving them unfiltered and giving that cloudy look with the use of an abundance of wheat. Monument City’s June Solstice is their version of what we call today’s “hazy IPA”, but keeping true to this style’s roots by dubbing it an actual wheat IPA…which is what it is. Jam packed with Citra, El Dorado, and Amarillo hops, this juicy wheat IPA is bursting with citrus, pineapple, and tropical fruit flavors. All the hazybois don’t have to wait 6 hours in line to suffice their hazy cravings, they can just grab a sixer of June Solstice.
