New Beers Available:

1. Upslope Brewing Company Imperial IPA – This is a bright orange imperial IPA with a citrusy and floral nose. Clocking in at a whopping 10% ABV and 90 IBU, this beer is a huge winner. Boulder, CO

2. La Chouffe Belgian Golden Ale – From the Belgian countryside, La Chouffe is a beautifully crafted Belgian Blonde/Golden ale that is effervescent and delicious! 8% ABV Achouffe, Belgium

3. Brasserie Les 3 Forquets Lupulus – Lupulus is a blonde ale with an ABV of 5 %, refermented in champagne bottles and in casks. The choice not to filter the beer, as well as not to pasteurize it ensures its taste and aromatic quality. Courtil, Belgium

4. Brouwers Verzet Oud Bruin 2012 – This beer is a blend of some ‘old’ brown beer that has already matured in oak barrels for six months behind, and some “young” brown beer. Each barrel is sampled separately and is cut up into different concentrations with each other. Tart and delicious, this beer is a great sour! Anzegem, Belgium

5. Deschutes Mirror Mirror 2014 Barleywine Ale – The Reserve Series romance all began with their first release of this limited-edition brew. Mirror Mirror, born of a double batch of Mirror Pond Pale Ale, is an inspired barley wine ale layered with intriguing nuances. Explore this latest incarnation and enjoy its delicious complexity in every sip. Bend, OR

6. Prearis Quadrupel – Hearty, rich, mature and balanced quadrupel with all of the punch of a 10% ABV Belgian-Style. It’s maltiness is delicious while the yeast brings out a nice spicy and earthy flavor. Oedelem, Belgium

7. Saint Arnold Homefront IPA – Malty and sweet up front. Lighter bodied than might be expected. The hop bitter, orange peel and hop flavor seem to all kick in at the finish. Remarkably easy to drink for an IPA with the orange notes more of a secret ingredient than a dominant flavor. Quite thirst quenching making it perfect for enjoying during Memorial Day weekend as proceeds go to Operation Homefront an organization that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors. Houston, TX

8. Ranger Creek Strawberry Milk Stout – This beer uses 500 pounds of Poteet, Texas strawberries to create a delicious and completely unique beer. The result is a dark, rich, creamy stout with a slight roastiness and undertones of rich chocolate, complemented by fresh strawberry flavor and aroma. 5.3% ABV San Antonio, TX  

9. Clown Shoes Crunkle Sam American Barleywine – This beer is a huge barleywine dry hopped with Citra hops. Clocking in at 11% ABV, this is one for sharing! Ipswich, MA

10. Clown Shoes Space Cake Double IPA – This is a bodacious double IPA  utilizing citrusy Mosaic hops and an immaculate West Coast style malt backbone. Dude… Chill out. Enjoy some Space Cake.

11. Prairie Artisan Ales Funky Galaxy – Funky Galaxy is a black farmhouse ale brewed with 3lbs per barrel Galaxy hops. The beer is conditioned with 2 brett strains and wine yeast. 8% ABV Tulsa, OK

12. Triporteur From Hell – This is a strong dark ale that sits starkly juxtaposed in character and flavor.  Legend says that the malts here have been fire-roasted in the flames of the underworld just before steeping in the sweat of Lucifer himself. That’s assuming the devil sweats. The term “dark” can deter some beer drinkers from experiencing Hell. We’ll blame this one on the weather. Passing on this beer in the spring season cannot be justified! The Triporteur from Hell is stacked with fire-roasted malt and laced with a fair amount of natural occurring subtle spice, but yet it surprisingly remains on the lighter side of dark ales. Halen, Belgium

13. Triporteur From Heaven – Heaven holds its head high with a radiant, bright golden color and inviting aromas of springtime. A beautiful Belgian blonde with an assertive clutch on it’s well-integrated hop character, the Triporteur from Heaven has a wide range of palettes it can excite.  Perfectly titled, it’s shocking the name Heaven hasn’t been spoken for before now. Halen, Belgium

14. Rogness Hefeweizen – a traditional hefeweizen wheat beer to combat the hot Texas climate. Picture bananas, cloves, and citrus fruit jumping off the Barton Springs diving board into a giant mouth. Your mouth. You win. Ideally served at 50 – 55°F. Austin/Pflugerville, TX

15. New Belgium and Odell Brewing Company Collaboration American Pale Ale – New Belgium teamed up with their hometown hop heroes at Odell to brew a FOrt COllins collaboration. Uses Fawcett malt, an Odell standard, and favored Centennial, Cascade and Citra hops. 6.7% ABV Fort Collins, CO

16. Engelszell Gregorius – The only Trappist brewery in Austria makes this dark tripel that is 9.7% ABV and boasts a huge maltiness with a balanced spice. Engelhartszell, Austria

17. Engelszell Benno –  This beer is a bight Dubbel with incredible maltiness. It doesn’t take over completely, but balances out with a nice sweetness from their yeast. 6.9% ABV Engelhartszell, Austria

18. Brooklyn East India Pale Ale –  This beer is a deep golden beer brewed from British malt and a blend of hops featuring the choice East Kent Golding variety. It is traditionally dry-hopped for a bright aroma of hops, lemongrass, pine and citrus fruit, and has a robust bitterness, a warming malt palate and a clean hoppy finish. 6.9% ABV Brooklyn, NY

19. Widmer/Boneyard Collaboration Black Light Session IPA– Blacklight IPA is a hop-forward, sessionable 4.2% ABV black ale with a heavy dose of five different hop varieties and stained black with cold-steeped dark malts. The beer focuses on big hop flavor and aroma, without the harsh bitterness and heavy roast that the beer’s dark color suggests. Portland, OR
