Dogfish Head SeaQuench Ale – SeaQuench Ale is a session sour quencher made with lime peel, black lime and sea salt. It’s a citrusy-tart union of three German styles of beer blissfully brewed into one. It was born by brewing a straightforward Kolsch with lots of wheat and Munich Malt, then they brewed a salty Gose with black limes, coriander and our sea salt. They followed it all up with a citrusy-tart Berlinerweiss made with lime juice and lime peel. All three beers are then blended together in the fermentation tank to create this German hybrid. 4.9% ABV / Milton, DE / Ratebeer 92 / Availability: Limited
Founder’s Curmudgeon – In traditional style Curmudgeon is brewed with an intense focus on the malt bill creating a very strong, rich, malty characteristic and a sweetness indicative of its cousin the barleywine. 9.8% ABV / Grand Rapids, MI / Ratebeer 98 / Availability: Decent / SoLa Only

*Ballast Point Red Velvet – Impossibly reddish in color (due to the beets) with nitro cascade fading into a pink cap of stable foam, great clarity.
