Now in Stock: Keith's Korner IPA

Perennial's series of draft-only IPAs has been a revelation. Turns out the brewery we've always known and loved for decadent imperial stouts, inventive Americanized Belgian-style ales, and delightfully refreshing Berliners and goses also knows their way around hop-forward styles as well. Every release has been a delight, which is why we're so excited to be bringing you the newest addition to the series: Keith's Korner.

It's a delightful take on the IPA style, featuring bright hop aromatics from Motueka, Denali, and Experimental Hop #06297 atop a lean malt base with a subtle toastiness from Munich and Golden Promise malts. Incredibly drinkable and satisfying.
Now available in 1/6bbl & 1/2bbl kegs.
Also available from Perennial:
17 Mint Chocolate Stout
17 Mint Chocolate Stout is one of the more decadent beers we've had. It's incredibly rich and strong, with deep dark chocolate flavor, smooth roasted malts, and cooling natural mint aromatics. We'd describe it as milkshake-like, but we've never had a milkshake this good.
Now available in 750ml bottles.
Glitter & Gold
Glitter & Gold is also made with an expressive Belgian yeast, and Perennial's brewers have complemented those fruity, spicy esters and phenols with a recipe that includes Missouri honey, spelt, and oats. This is floral, earthy, deeply complex stuff with huge aroma and a satisfying balance. It's an amazingly versatile food beer that is great on its own or with a meal at the dinner table!
Now available in 750ml bottles.
Suburban Beverage
A tart, hazy gose spiked with salt, orange peel, lemon peel, and key lime juice. It's citrus-packed and a touch grainy, with the bright snap of lactic acid coming up on the finish.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Berliner Mania!

Berliner Mania!

One of our favorite craft beer developments over the past few years has been the rise of the Berliner weisse. It's a delightful style that we can't believe we ever lived without--I mean, who doesn't love a low-ABV, flavor-packed, gently-sour, warm-weather crusher?

Though the style is very old, it has really come into its own as a canvas for modern brewers to experiment on--we've been delighted by Berliners made with citrus zests, stone fruit, wild yeasts, used wine barrels, and herbs.

We just noticed that we have a particularly exciting collection of modern Berliners available, so we thought we'd give you all a heads up. Check it out!

Now available:

Grimm Boysen Raspberry Pop!
Grimm's excellent "Pop!" series of dessert Berliner weisses returns with the introduction of Boysen Raspberry Pop!, featuring the tart tanginess of boysenberries and raspberries alongside vanilla and lactose richness. Smooth, lush, delicious stuff.
Now available in 22oz bottles.

Mikkeller Hallo Ich Bin Berliner Weisse Blueberry
Mikkeller has an amazing series of fruited Berliners going as well, with their "Hallo, Ich Bin Berliner Weisse" line. With the just-released blueberry variant, the tart, lean Berliner base is paired with earthy, juicy blueberries for a complex, dark purple drink that's sure to delight.
Now available in 500ml cans.

Mikkeller Hallo Ich Bin Berliner Weisse Mango
Also just released was Mikkeller's mango-tinged variant from the same series. Hallo Ich Bin Berliner Weisse Mango offers up a more tropical flair, with loads of soft mango aromatics married neatly to the bright base beer. At 3.7% ABV, it's pure, crushable refreshment.
Now available in 500ml cans.


Looking for more tart, refreshing goodness? Try these:

Libertine Aubree Rye Saison
A tropical and zesty saison with an underlying rye spiciness. Earthy, fruity, and layered.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Libertine Edna Table Saison 6x750ml
A zesty, heavily-dry hopped sour saison at just 4% ABV. Absolutely loaded with delicate floral aromatics and melon and citrus-like fruitiness.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Perennial Suburban Beverage 12x750ml
A tart, hazy gose spiked with salt, orange peel, lemon peel, and key lime juice. It's citrus-packed and a touch grainy, with the bright snap of lactic acid coming up on the finish.
Now available in 750ml bottles.
 
Beautiful Spanish Ciders on Draft

Beautiful Spanish Ciders on Draft!

Spanish cider is unlike any other beverage in the world. The ciders of Basque Country and Asturias are beguiling, complex, and well-loved across the globe, expressive of terroir and a mastery of wild fermentation. But Asturian cider is rarely available on draft. In fact, before we started working with the folks at Ciders of Spain, we're not sure we ever saw a keg of the stuff!

Thankfully, we do have a partnership with the folks at Ciders of Spain, and they've managed to get their hands on some truly special products. In addition to their regular lineup of Asturian offerings, we've now got a selection of several of the importer's finest ciders, available now in kegs. Check it out!

Now available:

Guzman Riestra Sidra Natural
This is a fantastic example of a traditional Asturian cider--it's mostly still and wild, with bold acidity and a rustic appearance. It's made with Spanish and French cider apple varieties for a huge aroma, layered structure, and food-friendly balance. Expect briny, funky, and wild flavors in bounds.
Now available in 750ml bottles & 30L kegs.

Viuda de Angelon Sidra Brut
Viuda de Angelon's Sidra Brut is made entirely from earthy, matured cider, refermented in package to produce a dry, festive drink with a fine, natural carbonation. If Guzman Riestra's Sidra Natural is a traditional Asturian cider, this is a more modern take--a bright sparkler for the Champagne lover.
Now available in 750ml bottles & 30L kegs.

Viuda de Angelon Sidra de Pera
Made entirely from pears and the yeast present on their skin and in their flesh, Sidra de Pera is a rich perry with vanilla aromatics and the slightest touch of residual sugar (1.5g/L). Made with the Charmat method to preserve the freshness of the delicate fruit aromatics.
Now available in 330ml bottles & 30L kegs.


Also available from Ciders of Spain:

Fanjul Sidra Natural 12x700ml
Guzman Riestra Brut Nature 12x750ml
Sidra Avalon 24x330ml
Viuda de Angelon Diamantes de Hielo 12x375ml
Viuda de Angelon Sidra 1947 12x750ml

Transcontinental Hop Mastery

Transcontinental Hop Mastery

The Lost Abbey/Pizza Port, Bagby Beer Company, and De La Senne are very different breweries, but they share one thing in common: a reputation for their masterful use of hops. So it makes some sense that brewers from each have put their heads together to create Schieven IPA, a delightful collaboration made at De La Senne.

The beer Jeff Bagby, Yvan de Baets, and Mike Rodriguez came up with is (naturally) a hop-forward one--an amber IPA with a snappy, crisp, and bitter hop character. Pine-like, orange peel aromatics are wed with a toasty malt character and fruity fermentation-born esters. It's balanced but boldly flavorful, showcasing the skills each brewer brought to the table.

We've just received kegs and a very limited amount of bottles of this special beer. Check it out!


Now available in 330ml bottles & 20L KeyKegs while supplies last.
