ALLTECH LEXINGTON

KENTUCKY ALE OLD FASHIONED BARREL ALE: 6/4 cases

It’s a copper-colored brew that plays off the beloved taste of a bourbon Old Fashioned – the most iconic of Southern cocktails. This seasonal is brewed with tart cherries and orange peel, then aged in fresh bourbon barrels as well as bourbon barrels used to age bitters.  Kindly donated Cherry Bitters barrels, originally used by Kentucky’s finest distillers, impart their wonderful character on this beer. Subtly sweet, it’s balanced by bitter hints of hops and bitters, as well citrusy notes of orange. ABV: 10.0%

 

AVERY BREWING

OUT OF BOUNDS: 4/6C cases

With each brewery crafting their own blend, this limited offering illustrates how a single recipe can be interpreted One Way or Another. ABV: 7.9%

CIGAR CITY

WHITE OAK JAI ALAI: 1/6 kegs | 6/4C cases

A truly unique India Pale Ale, this iteration of our Jai Alai IPA boasts the addition of white oak spirals to impart sleek notes of vanilla, coconut and a touch of dill to Jai Alai’s bold citrus and caramel character.  The oak also serves to temper the bitterness in the 70 IBU base beer while oak tannins elegantly dry the beer’s body to create a unique drinking experience that still remains true to Jai Alai’s unique qualities. ABV: 7.5%

NITRO PORTER: 1/2 kegs

Brewed with chocolate malt and hops from the Pacific Northwest, Cigar City Porter is a traditional American Porter that’s dark and complex yet dry and approachable. We celebrate this straight-ahead style that is as favored by the brewers of 21st century Tampa as it was favored by the luggage porters of 19th century London. ABV: 6.0%

ALPINE BEER

PURE HOPPINESS: 4/6 cases

Alpine’s Double IPA is mega-hopped in true West Coast-style. We use hops in the boil, more hops in the hop-back and an absurd amount of dry-hopping to achieve the beer’s signature, cutting-edge “hop bite.” Resinous with a pale golden hue and a bright white beer foam, the aroma presents pine notes that are dominated by sweet citrus with some perfume like qualities. The bold hop character is balanced perfectly by the caramel malt sweetness. ABV: 8.0%

 

LAGUNITAS

UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION SHUT-DOWN: 4/6 cases

Our malty and rich beer with a snappy hop finish truly defies style. Imperial mild…? Uber ESB…? We do know for sure that it is unforgiven and unrepentant. ABV: 9.6%

 

LEFT HAND

SAISON AU BLE DE MINUIT: 6/4C cases

Dry and crisp farmhouse-style ale. Mild tartness with Colorado barley and midnight wheat. ABV: 6.8%

MILK STOUT NITRO: 6/4C cases

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. Milk Stout Nitro is also good to go from the can with widget inside technology, or like a pro in a glass. 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. ABV: 6.0%

 

NEW HOLLAND

SMUTYNOSE

EAST COAST COMMON: 4/6 cases

East Coast Common is a nod to those uniquely American lager beers – fermented warm, in the San Franciscan-style. One sniff of the heady aroma tells you this isn’t a utilitarian, washing machine-variety beer. Our brewers infuse significant quantities of late-in-the-boil and post-fermentation dry hops to make sure you know East Coast Common is a New England original. ABV: 7.4%

 

STONE BREWING

SAURER AXTMANN: 1/1.5 L bottles

Have guitar, will travel. Check. Have mash paddle, will travel. Check. Have invitation to Berlin to brew, will travel. Hell yeah. Cue our friend Todd Haug. He checked all those boxes and joined us to make this inspired and unique creation. Our Stone Berlin Brewmaster Thomas Tyrell has spent many years studyingand brewing versions of the consummate Berlin style, the Berliner Weisse. Todd was intrigued with the idea of überizing (wasn’t a real word before, but it is now) the style and wantedto further überize (how quickly a new word can find its wayinto the lexicon) with the addition of ginger root and Citrus Hystrix leaf. They worked perfectly, as you’ll see. Todd, Thomasand Greg all agreed they’d never tasted anything quitelike it before, and that they all loved it. So now, it has traveled time and space to you. Check it! ABV: 9.0%

 

TWO ROADS

CLEMENTINE GOSE: 6/4C cases

This beer is a classic gose with a modern twist – we source and blend fresh Moroccan Clementines (Citrus clementina) from a local craft juicery. The result is a tart, juicy ale with a hint of salt and distinctive tang of refreshing clementine. ABV: 4.8%

 

WEYERBACHER

BERRY MONKS: 1/6 kegs

Berry Monks is a variation on our classic Belgian Tripel, Merry Monks, brewed with cranberries, orange peel and ginger. This 9.3% ABV ale is ripe with apple and pear notes, which blend nicely with the tartness of the cranberries, the citrus twist of the orange peel and a touch of ginger. It’s great on its own or paired with your favorite holiday dish. ABV: 9.3%

 

YARDS BREWING

GOLDEN HOP: 1/6 kegs | 1/2 kegs | 4/6 cases

This light-bodied IPA soars with the tropical notes of tangerine, mango and grapefruit from Mosaic and Amarillo hops and bright floral and citrus undertones from Cascade in the hopback. ABV: 6.0%

 

CHARLES WELLS

STICKY TOFFEE PUDDING ALE: 6/4 packs

Using traditional British desserts as the source of inspiration, Wells discovered that the natural, rich flavours of Sticky Toffee Pudding could be exquisitely combined with darker malts to create a truly distinctive ale. With toffee and caramel hints and rich fruit aromas, Sticky Toffee Pudding Ale is an intensely satisfying beer. ABV 5.0%

 

OOLA

CASK STRENGTH BOURBON: 6/750mL bottles

Choice barrels of our Waitsburg Bourbon Whiskey are occasionally selected for bottling at cask strength. As with vintage wine bottlings, there’s no exact schedule for these releases. At barrel strength our Bourbon presents an explosive nose of concentrated spice and toasted sugars. The finish is long, with heightened aromas of toffee, bright cherry, fresh tobacco leaf, vanilla bean and smoke. The spicy kick of a high rye content is balanced by sweet, smooth corn and the unmistakably silky viscosity of organic Washington soft white winter wheat. Aged initially in ten-gallon American oak casks and then matured in 53-gallon barrels, this meticulously handcrafted Bourbon has mellow tannins even at high proof. Never chill-filtered, our Cask Strength releases present Bourbon enthusiasts the opportunity to fine-tune their enjoyment. PROOF: 120

DISCOURSE “C” WHISKEY: 6/750mL bottles

Introducing our Whiskey Discourse series in June 2015 with the limited release of our 93-point, gold medal (SF International Spirits Competition) Waitsburg Bourbon Whiskey finished for an additional 9 months in 60-gallon French oak barrels from a 100-point Washington Cabernet Sauvignon producer. Whiskey Discourse C starts with OOLA’s signature Waitsburg Bourbon mash bill containing corn, rye, malted barley, and wheat. This beautiful whiskey is aged for 4 years in new American oak before being transferred and finished in used french oak Cabernet Sauvignon barrels for 9 additional months. Until now, Discourse “C” has never been available outside of the distillery! PROOF: 90

 

NEW HOLLAND

HATTER ROYALE HOPPED WHISKEY: 6/750mL bottles

New Holland’s Hatter Royale Hopped Whiskey is based on a 100% barley wash that is double-distilled and then infused with Centennial hops. It is slightly citric and bitter, with grapefruit and wildflower notes. Refreshing in a Paloma or Margarita variant, or excellent on the rocks with some lemon and soda. PROOF: 80

ZEPPELIN BEND WHISKEY: 6/750mL bottles

American Single Malt whiskey, twice distilled and aged in new American oak barrels with a heavy char. Notes of vanilla and cocoa arise from the slightly caramelized spirit leading to a classic American oak finish. PROOF: 90

 

COPPER FOX

WASMUND’S BLUE TOP SINGLE MALT: 6/750mL bottles

A special yearly distillery release edition of Wasmund’s classic Single Malt Whisky, “Blue Top” is in reference to the fact that the bottles are dipped in blue wax instead of the standard red wax used on the regular release. After aging for the standard 12-14 months, certain barrels of single malt are chosen to undergo an additional 4-6 month slumber in finishing barrels before being proofed, bottled, dipped in blue wax, and labelled with a unique batch number designated by the square root of a negative number – because it seems impossible that any whiskey can taste that good. Though it is normally released only at the distillery in Virginia and typically sells out quickly, a few bottles have been known to occasionally make their way North … though they never last long when they do. PROOF: 96

WASMUND’S BLUE TOP RYE: 6/750mL bottles

A few times each year, Copper Fox chooses a batch of Rye that shows unique character, and transfers it from the used bourbon barrels where initial aging occurs into a locally sourced Virginia Port barrel, for an additional 6-8 month slumber. When ready, the batch is bottled in an elegant corked bottle that is dipped in blue wax instead of the standard red – giving the series its name. It is normally only available at the distillery and sells out quickly, however we managed to get our hands on a very limited number of bottles. PROOF: 90

 

SHAND IMPORTS

BIG SMOKE 60 WHISKY: 6/750mL bottles

The Big Smoke is a blended Islay malt whisky. Bottled relatively young, its characteristics are reminiscent of traditional Islay malt – full of peat smoke coastal sweetness. Powerful yet caressing, the Big Smoke is bottled at 46% and 60% ABV, and contains the likes of some of the most iconic Islay malt distilleries. The Big Smoke delivers a bold and powerful sensory experience to the seasoned Islay fanatics, with a multi-dimensional sweetness that allows it to be enjoyed by connoisseurs of smoother Speyside and Campbeltown malts. PROOF: 120

BLACK BULL WHISKY KYLOE: 6/750mL bottles

From the award-winning Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Company and Black Bull brand comes Kyloe, a brand new release to add to the Black Bull fold. Kyloe (pronounced Kahy-loh) is inspired by the hardy breed of highland cattle, the Kyloe, known to survive in the bitter windswept highlands and islands of Scotland. Black Bull Kyloe shares much of its likeness with this great breed – robust and with outstanding pedigree. Kyloe is blended using the finest malt and grain whisky, at a high ratio of malt to grain, and bottled at a hearty 50% abv, without the use of chill filtration, to offer a bold, authentic and powerful sensory experience. PROOF: 100

BLACK BULL WHISKY 21 YEAR OLD: 6/750mL bottles

Put the sizzle back into your life with our 21 year old. Like a 21 year old, this whisky is full of zest, energy and has a lusting for the good times. We’ve gone for a blend of mainly Highland malts with a touch of Speyside and Islay to add something a bit extra, at a huge 55% malt to grain ratio and bottled at 50% abv. This one is for all you spice lovers out there. PROOF: 100
