Traquair House Ale – Mainly available filtered in bottles, though part of the production goes unfiltered into cask. The traditional brewing process consists of the following; 1. Traditional infusion mashing process. The wort is then drawn off and boiled during which process the hops are added. 2. The wort is now cooled and pitched with top fermenting yeast under controlled temperature. It is then fermented in oak over a period of seven days. The beer is then transferred into cold storage tanks or barrels and matured over a period of weeks. After maturation the beer is filtered prior to packing. 7.2% ABV / Innerleithen, Peebleshire, Scotland / RateBeer 95 / Availability: Decent
Traquair Jacobite – The famous Bear Gates guarding the approach to Traquair House, near Pebbles, have been closed since 1745 – when the last person to pass through them was Bonnie Prince Charlie. Now, 250 years later, the ancient Traquair Brew House celebrates the Jacobite cause by producing this potent spiced ale to a traditional fine recipe. Sip slowly and remember the old toast to the “King O’er the Water.” 8% ABV / Innerleithen, Peebleshire, Scotland / RateBeer 99 / Availability: Decent
Ayinger Jahrhundert – Originally brewed in 1978 to celebrate their 100th anniversary. It has a golden-yellow color with a slightly flowery yeast, honeyish aroma, and tastes a little spicy. Full-bodied in initial taste but mild before swallowing, and fades with a well-balanced hint of bitterness. It is an especially drinkable and harmonious beer. 5.5% ABV / Aying, Germany / Availability: Good
Mikkeller Big Worster – Strong ass barley wine. 15.4% ABV / Copenhagen, Denmark / RateBeer 90 / Availability: Limited
Mikkeller Black Hole – An intense imperial stout. The high bitterness from the hops and the sweetness from the malt and alcohol, creates a good balance which makes Black Hole an explosion of nuances, but also leaves a feeling of a perfect and complex beer. 13.1% ABV / Copenhagen, Denmark / RateBeer 99 / Availability: Limited
Mikkeller It’s Alive Wild Ale – Mikkeller’s answer and tribute to Orval. It’s Alive is an easy-to-drink beer with a lot of hops. The color is amber, the foam is high, white, and dense. The potent Brettanomyces culture makes It’s Alive continue to develop in the bottle. 8% ABV / Copenhagen, Denmark / RateBeer 94 / Availability: Limited
Mikkeller Monk’s Elixir – Monk’s Elixir is a heavy dark Belgian ale inspired by the Trappist monasteries of Rochefort and Westvleteren.

To Ol Black Maria BA IPA – Barrel-aged on Chardonnay Barrels. Black Maria is an American inspired Black IPA. It is black as a stout and hoppy as an IPA. The beer has been brewed with a good amount of highly roasted Carafa Malts, but with a relatively low amount of caramel and chocolate malts. The lack of caramel and chocolate results in less residual sweetness that you normally pick up from an Stout. For the hops they wanted some hops that could stand up against the Carafa malts. Therefore they used a mix of Columbus, Centennial, Galaxy and Cascade for the hop profile. 8.1% ABV / Copenhagen N, Denmark / RateBeer 97 / Availability: Limited
To Ol Goliat Coffee Imperial Stout – The armor of Goliat is black. Creamy black lacings. Stands with a towering height. He can grab elements from both earth and heaven. Earthy, roasted, notes from the earth. Warming, pungent, sweet notes from the skies. 10.1% ABV / Copenhagen N, Denmark / RateBeer 100 / Availability: Limited
Upland Crimson – Their only sour aged in bourbon barrels that have been previously used to age beer at least once. This creates petite notes of bourbon character, and darker, charred wood character. Crimson also undergoes a turbid mash, with a portion of flaked maize being boiled with the rest of the malt bill, including Vienna and caramel malts. A different cocktail of microorganisms are involved in fermentation, which creates sour notes, and hints of cherry pie. Crimson is aged for up to 8 months or more before packaging. 10% ABV / Bloomington, IN / RateBeer 97 / Availability: Limited
Upland Peach – Fermented for over eight months in white oak barrels. They use 7,000 pounds of fresh Indiana peaches from Huber’s Orchard and Winery in Starlight, Indiana, destoning the peach pits by hand before adding to the barrels. Peach is a fruited ale with gold and straw colors that shine upon pouring, and zesty amounts of carbonation. Fresh peach aromas meld with floral and wine-like notes. Wonderful peach flavors follow in the taste, accompanied by refreshing tartness with a dry finish and mouth-watering tanginess. 6% ABV / Bloomington, IN / RateBeer 97 / Availability: Limited
