Inspired by traditional English ESBs, our Calico Amber Ale is as American as it could be. A rich complexity comes from four types of maltâ€”but it's those distinct American hops that offer a crisp bitterness and unique floral aroma.
To round out our traditional-English-yet-very-American Amber Ale, we use a proprietary yeast to develop a fruity, Madeira-like richness. Try one today, and find out what a gold medal beer tastes like!
The fifth beer made with our brew buddies, Mikkeller. A big and ballsy, tasty Barley wine following the same path as the previous â€œGoopsâ€ made available. This time with corn taking over the throne.
Admin Note: Unlike previous "Goop" Entries, this recipe was brewed and packaged at EACH brewery using the same recipe. Therefore, an entry for the beer exists at both Three Floyds and Mikkeller. Please ensure you are rating the correct entry.
We're brewers whose substantial mettle and idiomatic approach to brewing allows us to consistently create works of art such as this justifiably self-righteous ale. Its bitterness hits our sweet spot. Its blackness lightens our hearts. Its liquid dichotomy pulls it all together in this sublimely sacrosanct ale. Yes, we damn well know our stuff here at Stone, and it would be irresponsible of us not to acknowledge how remarkable this heavenly creation of ours is. Thus the name we are compelled to give it --- Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale --- serves as a reminder of just how good we are, in both liquid and verbal form.
We're certainly not perfect. Too often, we allow our modesty to get the best of us as we're simply not inclined towards senseless braggadocio. When you're good, you're good. And when you do something great, the least you can do is acknowledge it. Others benefit from knowing. In this case, we find that we are compelled to point out how amazing this ale is that we rightly call the Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale.
First brewed in 2007 as the Stone 11th Anniversary Ale, this ale was an instant hit. With us. Other folks with great taste loved it too, but we were focused on how much we liked it, and we felt it was truly sublime. That euphoria didn't last long though, as it was soon replaced with the grim reality that when we sold out of it there wouldn't be any more. For us. And that was simply unacceptable. So, we are now blessing ourselves, and you the enlightened, with this ale. Thusly, you may now revel in your own self-righteousness as you see fit with this glorious example of ours. You are genuinely welcome, as it is our pleasure.
This is one monster of a Brown Ale! We used an obnoxious amount of chocolate malt and roasted barley to give this beer a cast iron backbone. Our Oatmeal Brown pours a dark mahogany with aromas of dark chocolate and coffee.
The brown ale to end all brown ales. Enjoy it, because there is no longer any reason to drink another. Youâ€™ve reached the pinnacle. A healthy blend of traditional British malts give this popular style a semi-sweet, biscuity, slightly roasted flavor. Oats thicken the mouthfeel, and a handful of specialty malts add complex chocolate, toffee, and caramel notes. The hops are mostly traditional, earthy British hops, but we cocked it up a bit with some Cascade late in the boil just to show those snooty Brits that we donâ€™t approve of that Constitutional Monarchy crap.
This masterpiece is a tribute to Black Butte Porter, the revolutionary Deschutes Brewery beer that has excited beer enthusiasts since 1988. This special Reserve Series release is a colossal version of Black Butte Porter. Our brewers enhanced Black Butte XXI by adding some Theoâ€™s Chocolate cocoa nibs from Seattle, dry-hopping it with 100 pounds of Bellatazzaâ€™s locally roasted coffee, and then aging a portion of it in Stranahanâ€™s Colorado whiskey barrels. These regional partners provided quality artisan ingredients that give this commemorative beer a truly handcrafted complexity.
Released as Black Butte XX in 2008 to celebrate our 20th Anniversary.
Two of the worldâ€™s oldest beverages join forces to conquer your palate. Victory at Sea embodies the art of masterful brewing by infusing a velvety Imperial Porter with pure vanilla flavor and specially-selected, hand roasted coffee. The addition of cold brewed coffee to the beer lends a subtle roasted flavor to this robust imperial porter, blending perfectly with rich vanilla and caramel undertones. By uniting two San Diego brewing traditions, Caffe Calabria freshly brewed coffee and Ballast Point beer, we have successfully created an artisanal masterpiece.
A Russian Imperial Stout with a hearty malt body and bold hop flavor.
Yes, it's a dark brew. And much like the "Blackout of 2003" that left the northeastern United States in complete darkness, this hearty stout can also give rise to old-fashioned neighborhood get-togethers and down-home fun.
The coffee lover's consummate beer. Brewed with an abundance of flaked oats, bitter and imported chocolates, and Sumatra and Kona coffee, this stout has an intense fresh-roasted java nose topped with a frothy, cinnamon-colored head that goes forever.
â€œthe ancients called it â€˜food for the godsâ€™â€œ The Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the Maya, unfolds a complex web of mystery around a beverage known as xocoatl (ch-co-atle). At Southern Tier, weâ€™re not surprised that hieroglyphs of the ancient Maya depict chocolate being poured for rulers and gods. Even through the many voyages of Columbus, the mystical bean remained nothing more than a strange currency of the native peoples. Moving through centuries, the circular journey of cacao has been realized in our brewing house, encompassing the complexity of the darkest, bitter-sweet candy together with the original frothy cold beverage of the ancient Maya to bring to you our Blackwater Series Choklat Stout. We have combined the finest ingredients to tempt your senses & renew the power & interrelation of history in every bottle.
2013 vintage - 10% abv
A barrel-aged, strong-ale with a soft and rich caramel-malt character intermingled with deep vanilla tones dancing in an oak bath. Unmistakably distinctive and hauntingly remarkable, Dragon's Milk's warming complexity pairs well with smoked meats and cheeses, red meat, or a nice cigar.
An American hop assault for all the ambivalent warriors who get the girl in the end. â€œLook, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess.â€ This iconic ale features a blend of four hop varieties which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas.
Selected as a benchmark for the Beer Judge Certification Program used in all American based beer judging. Centennial IPA has quickly become the IPA of choice.

The Sculpin is a testament to our humble beginnings as Home Brew Mart. It showcases bright flavors and aromas of apricot, peach, mango & lemon. The lighter body also brings out the crispness of the hops.
This delicious Ballast Point Ale won a gold medal at the World Beer Cup 2010 in the International Pale Ale category. The Sculpin fish has poisonous spikes on it's fins that can give a strong sting.
Ironically, the meat from a Sculpin is considered some of the tastiest. Something that has a sting but tastes great, sounds like a Ballast Point India Pale Ale.
Great Divide brews Titan IPA for hop disciples -- independent beer drinkers seeking out robust, flavorful beers characterized by their abundance of hops, flavor, aroma and bitterness.

The phrase is a part of a strong theme speckled throughout HBOâ€™s fourth season, which started airing in March. As Arya Stark sets out to avenge those who have fallen, she adopts it as a mantra against the people she wants dead. The label art features a two-headed coin, which was given to Arya by Jagen Hâ€™ghar, one of the "Faceless Men of Braavos" assassins who can change their appearance on demand. Each cork is fire-branded with â€œValar Dohaeris,â€ the traditional response phrase to â€œValar Morghulisâ€ meaning â€œall men must die.â€

There are only two ingredients in our Orchard Gate Gold: Apple Juice and Yeast. No artificial flavors or colors and - of course - no sulfite nor preservatives of any kind.
Pours a pale yellow-green; some brief head, and very little visible carbonation. Nose is green apple, green apple skin, citrus.

Perennial Artisan Ales and Solemn Oath Breweryâ€™s hottest new collaboration beer is Stefon. Spicy rye malt, subtle notes of stone fruit, a hint of roast, slightly tart with a dry finish and conditioned with Brettanomyces anomalus. This beer has EVERYTHING.
A lot of people have asked us "why are there Bee's on the label?â€ Well, we don't really have an answer for you other than they just look cool. This is a light bodied easy drinking ale. We only use real raspberries so the flavor is very mild fruit and balanced, not what you would expect from a "fruit" beer. The way we see it is we're brewers so lets make good beer, not some fruity carbonated malt beverage. Oh yeah, our motto..."beer first, fruit second".
â€œThe fruity oneâ€
Real fruit juice gives the new Stiegl Radler a distinct, tart aroma and natural cloudiness.
Low in calories: only 35 calories / 100 ml Alcohol content: 2.5 % vol.
Oskar Blues' newest beer is an uncompromising, small-batch version of the beer that made Pilsen, Czech Republic famous. Unlike mass market "pilsners" diluted with corn & rice, Mama's is built with 100% pale malt, German specialty malts, and Bavarian hops. While it's rich with Czeched-out flavor, its gentle hopping (35 IBUs) and low ABV (just 5.3%) make it a luxurious but low-dose (by Oskar Blues standards) refresher.

Strong, rich cocoa & nutty flavors. With or without cream
A striking, robust porter full of warmth and chocolate malt. Eugene is a robust porter named after Eugene V. Debs, an American union leader and activist who led the Pullman Railroad strike in 1894.

Apple Cin Mead is perfect served hot or blended with your favorite beer or soda.
Honey Wine Fermented with Coco. This sweet and chocolaty wine has a minty chocolate character with lush honey flavor.
In the tradition of "Honeymoon" or aphrodisiacal meads, this luscious sweet wine stirs the senses and arouses the passions.
Not your typical "Jelly of the Month Club" beer. Dark roasted malt and bittersweet cocoa and coffee flavor and aroma burst from this pitch black milk stout. The full body and sweetness are derived from the addition of lactose (aka milk sugar) which is not fermentable by beer yeast. A healthy dose of English Kent Goldings hops provides a counterpoint to this aleâ€™s rich and complex maltiness.
Dark roasty notes balanced with creamy flavors of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla
