New Beers from Anchorage!

Few breweries have retained as clear and stable a voice as Anchorage Brewing Company. Their beers, centered around the idea of discovering all that the yeast known as Brettanomyces can do, are consistently delicious and showcase an incredible range of flavors, aromas, and textures, despite their unifying concept. 

We are always thrilled to receive a new Anchorage beer, because we know that we're in for something delicious, but also because we're excited to see what Gabe and his crew have managed to think of next. We're regularly encountering brand new ideas in Anchorage's beers, which is impressive in this age of 5000+ American breweries.

We've just received a reup on Anchorage beers new and old that you won't want to miss out on. Check 'em out! 

Now available:

Easy Evil
Easy Evil is a Brett-fermented saison brewed with Motueka and Saaz hops and aged in oak tanks with an absurd amount of black raspberries. The beer is deep purple and incredibly lush with fruit and hop aromatics. It's tart and vinous, with subtle oak and earthy funk backing up brighter flavors of raspberry and lime. Delicious!
12x750ml bottles.
1/6bbl PubKeg.


Ghosts in their Eyes
The Ghosts in their Eyes is a Brett-fermented IPA showing off huge hop aromatics from Citra and Galaxy hops. Tropical and funky, with citrus and pineapple flavors in bounds. Complex, dry, and unlike any other IPA out there!
12x750ml bottles.
1/6bbl PubKeg.


Matame Ahorita
Matame Ahorita was developed in tandem with Michigan's Jolly Pumpkin, a frequent collaborator (check out Calabaza Boreal, also available now!). It's a tart saison brewed with Alaska-grown blueberries, which lend the beer its lovely reddish-purple hue. The earthy fermentation profile picks up on the earthiness of the blueberries, resulting in a bold, unified aroma that is greater than the sum of its parts. Incredible!
12x750ml bottles.

Bottles, Cans, and Kegs from Vietnam's
Pasteur Street Brewing

Vietnam probably isn't near the top of your list of craft beer destinations, but Pasteur Street Brewing is doing their best to get it there. These folks are bringing incredible craft bia to both Saigon and our pals at Shelton Brothers. We, in turn, have brought their tasty beers to you.

Each of these beers showcases deft brewing skill inflected with a taste of Vietnam with the inclusion of ingredients like Saigon cinnamon, dragonfruit, and pineapple. These bold, tropical flavors have been perfectly wed to many of the modern craft beer styles we enjoy stateside, offering up flavors you won't encounter from American breweries. Their products are brilliantly conceived and crafted, and you are sure to love them. Check 'em out!

Now available:

Cyclo Stout
Cyclo Stout is perhaps Pasteur Street's best-known beer stateside, and for good reason. It's a decadent imperial stout brewed with Vietnamese cacao nibs, Saigon cinnamon and Mui Ne vanilla beans. It's seriously strong stuff at 13% ABV, but drinks smoothly and satisfyingly. Absolutely delicious.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Da Lat Coffee Porter
Da Lat Coffee Porter is brewed with special Arabica beans from a Da Lat coffee farm run by K'ho people of Vietnam's Central Highlands. The coffee is the star here, showcasing a beautiful array of fruity and earthy flavors that blend nicely with the roasty, chocolatey base beer.
Now available in 30L Dolium kegs.

Dragonfruit Gose
You won't be shocked to learn that Pasteur Street's dragonfruit gose is indeed a gose brewed with dragonfruit. You might be surprised at just how delicious it is, though! In addition to the dragonfruit, the beer is spiced with coriander and salt that neatly balance the beer's lively acidity and tropical fruitiness.
Now available in 30L Dolium kegs.

Ich Bin Ein Pineappler Pineapple Berliner Weisse
Ich Bin Ein Pineappler is a bright, tangy Berliner Weisse brewed with ample amounts of fresh-squeezed pineapple juice, which kicks up the acidity and juiciness to the next level. It's a tropical, refreshing treat that will transport you to a sunny beach with every sip.
Now available in 30L Dolium kegs.

Passionfruit Wheat
Passionfruit Wheat is a hazy, 5.5% ABV wheat beer that is just loaded with fresh, real passionfruit flavor. It's tangy and super juicy, with a subtle graininess and a refreshing, snappy finish. It's a perfect beer for an unseasonably warm winter!
Now available in 330ml cans & 30L Dolium kegs.
 
Fresh Batches from Toppling Goliath

Fresh Batches from Toppling Goliath

Toppling Goliath's Dorothy's New World Lager is one of these beers that we keep finding in our glass, and it's proof that the brewery is more than just brilliant hop-forward pale ales and IPAs. It is an impeccably-balanced California Common with a solid maltiness, a soft hoppiness, and a smooth, rich texture. It has grainy malt character, earthy hop aromatics, and a clean, snappy finish. It's a fantastic everyday beer that is compatible with a wide range of foods and represents a perfect way to cap a work day.

But if you're looking for, well, brilliant hop-forward pale ales and IPAs, we've got you covered there as well. We've just received fresh batches of Toppling Goliath's MoZee, PseudoSue, and Golden Nugget as well. Check it out!

Dorothy's New World Lager - 24x16oz cans (4pks)

Also available from Toppling Goliath:

PseudoSue
- 24x16oz cans (4pks)
The beer, the myth, the legend. Okay, we'll cut it out with the platitudes, but the fact is: we love this stuff. PseudoSue is a beautifully-made pale ale featuring the influence of just a single hop variety. Citra is the star here, which lends the beer huge aromas of grapefruit, pine, and tropical fruit. It's incredibly juicy but also super balanced, thanks to a finishing snap of bitterness that will keep you reaching for your next sip (then your next can).

Golden Nugget - 24x16oz cans (4pks)
It could be said that Golden Nugget is PseudoSue's older sibling, exhibiting much of the same bold but balanced hop character, but with a little extra punch. It's 6.8% ABV to Sue's 5.2% and has a touch more body and bitterness. Expect a somewhat rounder maltiness and a sharper hoppy edge from the Golden Promise malt and Nugget hops that give this beer its name. 

MoZee - 12x22oz bottles
MoZee is available to us here in California for the first time. It's a variant on the brewery's famed Zeelander IPA, which highlights the grassy, tropical, vinous Nelson Sauvin hop. This version is additionally hopped with Mosaic, lending the beer an extra layer of punchy hoppy goodness that you're sure to love.

Brilliant New Beers from E9 & Gigantic

We've just received a load of beers that have put us in a particularly "Pacific Northwest" kind of mood. We've got the Vedder blasting on the stereo, we're drinking even more coffee than usual, and we're sweating through flannel on these unseasonably warm winter days.  Completing the picture is our glassware, which is full of beers from our pals at E9and Gigantic, who have just sent us loads that contain tons of exciting new beers. Check 'em out!

Now available from Gigantic:

Gigantic End of Reason
A rich, malt-driven beer inspired by the Belgian strong dark ales produced at Trappist monasteries. Toffee, chocolate, dark fruit, and clove-like aromatics in bounds. Strong, complex, and satisfying.
Now available in 22oz bottles and 1/6bbl & 1/2bbl kegs.

Gigantic Pipewrench
Pipewrench is a beautiful example of a rarely-seen style: the barrel-aged IPA. This version spends three months aging in Ransom Old Tom gin barrels, lending the beer an array of botanical aromatics that meld seamlessly with the bright hop character of the base beer. Herbaceous, citrusy, spicy, and lightly oaky. A real gem!
Now available in 22oz bottles and 1/6bbl kegs.

Gigantic Scrilla
Scrilla is a lovely pale ale with huge hop aromatics from a generous dose of Crystal, Citra, Simcoe, and Magnum hops. Refreshing and bright with "huge fresh squeezed citrus hop aroma and flavor." A Gigantic classic!
Now available in 22oz bottles and 1/6bbl & 1/2bbl kegs.

Also just in from Gigantic:
Gigantic IPA 1/2bbl
Ginormous 12x22oz
Kolschtastic 12x22oz & 1/2bbl


Now available from E9:

E9 Amour Aux Myrtilles
Also known as "Blueberry Love," Amour Aux Myrtilles is a barrel-aged sour ale brewed with loads of blueberries. It's funky, tart, complex, and deeply purple, with a lovely earthiness from the fruit and the yeast used for fermentation.
Now available in 375ml bottles.

E9 Beersel Dreamin'
Beersel Dreamin' is a gently funky pale ale with eminent drinkability. A beautiful balance of maltiness, hop character, and E9's signature fermentation profile. Crushable, food-friendly stuff!
Now available in 750ml bottles.

E9 Carice
Carice gets its bright red color and funky fruitiness from a generous dose of red currants, which nicely complement the bold base beer, a barrel-aged dubbel that weighs in at 9.9% ABV. Juicy and tart, with lovely lush fruit character.
Now available in 375ml bottles.

E9 Catharsis
Catharsis is a beautiful barrel-aged saison driven in aromatics by the influence of Saaz and Kohatu hops, a New Zealand variety known for its intense tropical fruit character. Elegant and powerful.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

E9 Dark Passenger
Dark Passenger represents a rare foray into the world of imperial stouts for E9. Of course, it has their trademark funk to it, with a soft underlying fermentation-born earthiness. Super rich, chocolatey, and roasty.
Now available in 20L Dolium kegs.

E9 Frambuesa Moka
A strong tart ale built around the classic marriage of raspberries and chocolate. Dark and strong, with loads of chocolatey malt character underpinning explosive raspberry aromatics.
Now available in 375ml bottles.

E9 Hilltop Wild
Hilltop Wild is a mixed-culture blended blond ale with loads of stone fruit aroma and a gentle hop character from the wine-like Hallertau Blanc hop. Delicate, light, and tart.
Now available in 20L Dolium kegs.

E9 Le Perelin
Le Perelin begins life as a simple saison before aging in a mix of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir barrels, which give the beer a layered complexity and vinous acidity. Dry hopped with Pilgrim hops!
Now available in 20L Dolium kegs.

E9 Le Visiteur
Le Visiteur is an American wild ale brewed with blackberries and nectarberries before being barrel fermented with a mixed culture. It was blended with Jordan Keeper of Brasserie Trois Dames and is focused on fruit character, with a bunch of rich berry aromatics and a deeeeeeep purple color.
Now available in 375ml bottles.

E9 Sweetheart Aria
At 11.3% ABV, Sweetheart Aria is one of the strongest beers we've ever seen from E9. It's based on a powerful Belgian tripel base, fortified with Sweetheart cherries during an aging stint in Chardonnay barrels. Intensely delicious!
Now available in 375ml bottles.

E9 Table Hop Batch 1
E9 is famous for making elegant, low-alcohol beers with lovely hop character and Brett fermentations. Table Hop Batch 1 represents all of that in one package: it's tart, Bretty, and has yeast phenolics and hop character interacting in perfect harmony.
Now available in 20L Dolium kegs.

E9 The Duel Wild Ale
The Duel in question here is that between the Bing cherries and red raspberries used in the production of this beer: it's up to you to figure out which wins out. The brewery describes this one as a "fruit bomb," and we're inclined to agree. It's just bursting with fruit flavor atop a tart, lightly funky base that was aged 1-3 years in barrels. So good!
Now available in 375ml bottles.

Product Feature:
Logsdon's Krieke Vier

Logsdon isn't a brewery known for doing a ton of big, flashy releases. That said, they've released several beers over the years that have organically developed a deserved cult following, from their early sour ales and wild experiments like Far West Vlaming and The Conversion, to fruit-laden specialties like Cerasus, Peche 'n' Brett, and their newest fruit sour release, Deep River Blues.

We're confident the next Logsdon beer to earn cult classic status is the brilliant Krieke Vier. It's is a powerful exploration of what can be done with barrels, cherries, Lactobacillus, Brettanomyces, and Belgian yeast strains. The beer starts life as a Belgian quadrupel, fermented with eight different yeast and bacteria strains. It's then aged on cherries for four months in used bourbon barrels. The result is a bold, deeply complex sour ale with loads of character. Expect lush aromas of fresh cherry, charred oak, plum, and vanilla. 

4.2/5 on Untappd!


Also featured from Logsdon:

Abscisson
Abscission is a limited-edition auburn mixed-culture saison (seizoen?) built for cold-weather drinking. It's gently tart and has layers of malty complexity from the wheat, caramel, chocolate, and Vienna malts used in its production. 
Now available in 30L kegs.

Deep River Blues
The newest addition to Logsdon's spectacular lineup of sour ales is Deep River Blues, a tart, gently funky saison made with loads of blueberries. Earthy, fruity, and rife with berry personality. 
Now available in 750ml bottles while supplies last.

Table Bretta
Table Bretta offers all the delightful rustic yeast character you love from Logsdon's modern classic Seizoen Bretta, in a lighter package. A sessionable variant built for satisfying crushability. 
Now available in 30L kegs.

Seven Years Blonde
Seven Years Blonde is a Calypso dry-hopped blonde ale named in reference to Odysseus' seven year imprisonment by the siren, Calypso. The beer beautifully marries the hop's bright aromatics with the fruity estery character of the yeast used to ferment the beer to create a lively, satisfying Belgo-American invention.
Now available in 30L kegs.
