Monument City Brewing Wood Stove Imperial Stout is a bold, rich stout with intense dark chocolate, caramel and roasted malt flavors. At 10% this imperial stout will keep you warm all winter long.

AleSmith Brewing and Stone Brewing made Gregarious Nature IPA and the beer will pay tribute to the “classic” San Diego-style IPA. “This easy-drinking brew will put you in a friendly mood with it’s assertive notes of citrus, pine and grapefruit.”

thumbnail_IMG_3717.jpg

AleSmith’s Double Red IPA, previously known as Winter YuleSmith, offers up an intense hop aroma combined with a well-balanced, full bodied, caramel-malt sweetness. A variety of American hops burst with flavors of pine and citrus complimenting the substantial malt backbone to deliver a full-flavored ale with layers of complexity.

Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere was the first wet hop ale and it inspired the wet hop craze in America. Wet—undried—hops go straight from the fields into our kettles within 24 hours. Because hops are incredibly perishable, using hops wet preserves all of the precious oils and resins for a unique drinking experience as evidenced by the intense herbal green flavors and citrus-like and floral aromas.

The Bruery 11 Pipers Piping is a Scotch-style ale features a rich and dominant malt flavor complimented by the candi sugar, a traditional Belgian ingredient, while the coriander's roasted, nutty aromas and flavors come to the fore.

St. Bernardus Christmas Ale is a dark seasonal brewed in the classic 'Quadrupel' style of Belgium's best Abbey Ales. (10,0 % ABV) Similar to all the beers from their brewery, it greets the drinker with the signature aroma of the St.Bernardus house yeast strain (in use since 1946!) Rivaling the complexity of the St.Bernardus Abt 12, St.Bernardus Christmas Ale offers a spicy, mint-like flavor profile exuding the tastes of warming alcohol, fermented molasses, apricots, licorice and marzipan that are highlighted by the perfect balance of brewing sugars.

IMG_3549.jpg

Two Roads Under The Wire is a hazy IPA collaborated w/ Aslin Beer Co. in Herndon, VA.

DC Brau Hazy Alpha Domina Mellis Imperial IPA is a double-dry hopped winter seasonal. It incorporates gallons of wildflower honey from Burnside Farms in Haymarket, Virginia, along with Proximity (Delaware Maltster) base malt, flaked barley, flaked oats and acidulated malt (for natural pH adjustment), Chico Ale yeast, and Falconer’s Flight, Columbus, Mosaic, Crosby Experimental #6, Comet and Simcoe hops. Hopsteiner 160 gr/ alpha CO2 Hop extract was also incorporated.

SOUTHERN TIER SCIENCE IS THE ART COLLECTION PARADOX OF THE POWERFUL | RELEASE FOUR | UNFILTERED DOUBLE INDIA PALE ALE "The swan song of our Science is the Art Collection, Paradox of the Powerful, is hopped six ways from Sunday. We hit it with a dose of Mosaic hops in the kettle on its way to the whirlpool, then we open the floodgates and soak whole flower Mosaic in the hopsack at over 1/2 A pound per barrel. We lace the fermenters with Citra and Simcoe hop dust over the course of several days to produce juicy tropical flavors and aromas. Notes of grapefruit and berries coupled with low IBU make this a crusher, much like our space heroine." -Brewer Master

Available for a limited time only in November!

Two Roads Holiday Ale Biere De Garde is inspired by the little known Biere de Noel style, a subset of Biere de Garde, both of which originated on small farmhouse breweries in the north of France.

STONES MIKHAIL (2018 STONE TOTALITARIAN IMPERIAL RUSSIAN STOUT AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS W/ ESPRESSO BEANS) has an intense coffee characteristics abound from both the dark malts and the espresso, while rich caramel-like and vanilla notes from the bourbon barrel aging adds layers of complexity, a touch of sweetness and a vibrant dark fruit finish.

STONE XOCOVEZA MOCHA STOUT Time spent in bourbon barrels gave an already complex beer even more complexity and flavor intensity, layering additional caramel-like and vanilla flavors on top of those already present. Aromas of rich coffee and dark chocolate are followed by nutmeg and cinnamon; a lush, heavy mouthfeel laden with charred oak and toffee engulfs the palate on the first sip. Lingering pasilla pepper and soft oak flavors persist through an exceptionally long finish in this intensely rich and satisfying beer.

STONE MOJAY IPA is a tropical, juicy, orange and citrus, subtle spice, bright fruit character with a nice bitter finish. This year marks the 10th American Homebrewers Association Rally held at Stone and the hazy New England-style IPA has descended upon the craft beer industry. To put a familiar twist on this new trend, fiancés Corey Magers and Elizabeth Bakas went for an East-West hybrid, brewing a hazy hop bomb with more bitterness than a typical NEIPA. Amarillo, Citra and Mosaic hops elicit a fresh-squeezed OJ quality, in a combination of pellet hops and cryo hops for more clean flavors and less roughness. Mosaic + OJ = Mojay. Forget mimosas – this one is perfect for a lazy Sunday.

Bells Winter Releases

IMG_3508.jpg

Winter White Ale is fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley and wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance, Winter White is a beer for embracing winter.

Arabicadabra is brewed with a cold coffee extract made at the brewery using a combination of fair trade, organic Nicaraguan coffee beans and Sumatra coffee beans. Lactose is also used for creaminess (those with dairy allergies or sensitivities should take note). It was inspired by Milchkaffee, another specialty Bell's beer.

Expedition Stout offers immensely complex flavors crafted specifically with aging in mind. A huge malt body is matched with a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruit and other aromas. The flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages in your cellar.

CHRISTMAS ALE is a traditional Scotch Ale. Rich and malty with notes of caramel and a warm finish.

Lampshade Party Ale™ is a limited release! This big, strong Double IPA is dry-hopped with Australia’s Galaxy and the Pacific Northwest’s new-school IPA hop, Idaho 7. The hop character jumps out at you with juicy aromas of fruit punch, red berry and pineapple. The bitterness is strong, but balanced with a nice malt character.

Omnipollo Maz: "Mazarin is a blend of fruity and piney hop flavours. There are heaps of juicy fruity hops which lend sweetness alongside a slightly over-ripe mango and citric twang, all balanced by resinous piney bitterness. A juicy pale ale, great for when you are looking for something in between a session beer and an IPA."

Evil Twin Brewing Soul Made: "Based on ‘lost souls’ but switched the galaxy hops out with the beautiful citra hop! Hazy and juicy with a bright citrus and tropical flavor."

Cigar City Marshal Zhukov: “This Russian Imperial Stout is dedicated to Georgy Zhukov, arguably one of the finest generals of World War II. Opaque black in color, with notes of espresso, chocolate, dark toffee and hints of blackstrap molasses. The English hop varieties provide a subtle herbal dryness, and the beer finishes with a hearty slab of roasty espresso. Pair Marshal Zhukov’s with mushroom solyanka, dark chocolate, cherries and ground wars in Russia.”

Allagash Brewing Pictavia: “(the former name of Scotland) has sweet honey and caramel notes balanced by oak and a light tart bitterness. It’s brewed with Special B, Munich, pale, and Caramel malt in addition to roasted barley and our two row blend. It’s then hopped exclusively with Northern Brewer. After fermenting on an abbey-style yeast, we age it in scotch barrels—that first held port, before scotch—for around four months.”
