A Taste of California's Central Coast

We have a pretty broad range of breweries represented in our portfolio here at Lime, but none of them are quite like the Libertine Brewing Company. This is a brewery approaching beermaking with a truly fresh perspective, producing unusual beers that are totally delicious.

Each of these beers is aged in oak barrels after spending time in both an open coolship and in large oak puncheons. Each is expressive of the zymagical capabilities of the native yeast and bacteria populations of the brewery's home on California's Central Coast. Each is tart, complex, and satisfying. Some have their roots in very old traditions, while others are completely modern creations, but each offers a delightful taste of this region's unique terroir.

We recently reloaded our supply of the brewery's year-round staples and several newer beers, featured below. Check 'em out!

Now Available:

1234 Broad Street
A malty but dry biere de garde with the Libertine's signature tart 'n' funky fermentation character. Gently fruity and deeply complex.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

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

Central Coast Saison
A dry, sour, and deeply funky saison, with loads of earthy and bright aromatics. Like nothing else out there!
Now available in 750ml bottles.

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

Pacific Ocean Blue Gose
Made with local seawater (yes, really), Pacific Ocean Blue Gose is a briny, tart, and satisfying example of one of our favorite styles. Juicy and approachable.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Saison Fonce
A dark, roasty saison aged in oak barrels. Malty and gently sour with berrylike and chocolatey aromatics.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Wild IPA
Not your typical IPA! This stuff is very heavily dry-hopped and marked with the signature funky aromatics that make the Libertine the Libertine. Citrusy, floral, and endlessly complex.

Three New Ones from Prairie

Three New Ones from Prairie

We love it when a brewery plays to their strengths.

The folks at Prairie Artisan Ales do everything well, really, but perhaps their strengthiest strengths are on display when they make sour ales and imperial stouts. Bomb is a modern classic, the "Funky" series never disappoints, and all the other riffs, variations and one-offs we taste from Prairie are exceptionally well-made and interesting.

We were just able to get our hands on three new beers from Prairie that exemplify what the brewery does best. Check 'em out!

Now available:

Apricot Funk
A delicious, juicy sour ale that is absolutely bursting with lush apricot aromatics. Dry, bright, and effervescent with an earthy underlying funk. So good!
Now available in 500ml bottles & 1/6bbl kegs.

Paradise
Paradise started as a one-off draft-only specialty beer that became so popular that Prairie had no choice but to make more. It's an ultra-rich, decadent imperial stout brewed with coconut and vanilla. Pure tropical and chocolatey satisfaction. 13% ABV.
Now available in 12oz bottles & 1/6bbl kegs.

Pe-Kan
If you're still thirsty for more of Prairie's incredible imperial stouts, there's Pe-Kan, the newest addition to their lineup. Like Paradise, this one is very strong and rich, but it swaps the coconut with pecans for a less tropical take on the style. Instead, the beer is nutty and smooth, with a drying bitterness on the finish that keeps this remarkably drinkable for an 11.5% ABV beer.
Now available in 12oz bottles.
 
New from Perennial: Cave Torch IPA

New from Perennial: Cave Torch IPA

Perennial has established themselves as one of the country's best producers of Belgian-style ales. Their mainstay lineup showcases a mastery over Belgian yeast and a keen eye for marrying its character to American ingredients. Oh yeah, they're also one of the country's best producers of imperial stouts, widely-loved for the powerful trio of Abraxas, Sump, and 17 Mint Chocolate Stout. With their last draft-only release, White Impala, Perennial proved that they can make a killer IPA as well.

That's why we're so excited for their newest draft-only release, Cave Torch. It's pure juicy, hazy IPA goodness, with added zesty, tropical character brought on by a dose of mandarin oranges and boatloads of Citra, Amarillo and Wakatu hops. It's hugely aromatic and keenly balanced, sturdy but dry and fruity but complex. It's really wonderful stuff available for a limited time only!


Now available in 1/6bbl and 1/2bbl kegs.
 
Introducing: E9 Brewery

Introducing: E9 Brewery

That's right, folks--we're bringing you another exciting new producer this week! E9 Brewery is new to California, but their roots in their home of Tacoma, Washington go deep.

The brewery is housed in an old firehouse (Engine House No. Nine, of course) that was established in 1907. Later in its life, the firehouse became a tavern in 1972 before reaching its current state as the E9 Brewery, established in 1995 as Tacoma's first craft beer maker.

At 22 years old, E9 is old by the standards of the craft beer industry, but you'd never know it from the beers they're making. These are modern, forward-thinking beers that are at the cutting edge of all that's cool about the 2017 craft beer scene. Check 'em out!

Amitie
Amitie is a tart farmhouse ale featuring layers upon layers of complexity from fermentation and a stint aging in used red wine barrels with multiple strains of Brettanomyces. Absolutely beautiful stuff!

Now available in 1/6bbl kegs.

Nefelibata
Nefelibata is a tribute to the dark sour ales of Flanders, made for you dreamers out there. It's a beautiful beer--malty and sour with a cutting, oaky, barrel-aged edge. A brilliant example of the style.
Now available in 1/6bbl kegs.

Introducing: Wildcraft Cider Works

Eugene, Oregon is a beautiful place, surrounded by mountains, wild greenery, and the majestic Willamette River. It's easy to see how the folks at Wildcraft Cider Works would be inspired by it.

This is a cidery making real, seasonal ciders entirely from whole fruit. They appreciate the beauty of their hometown and do what they can to bottle it up for you, exclusively using locally-grown fruit and other ingredients. In some cases, we're talking SUPER local--one of the ciders they've sent us uses fruit grown within 10 miles of their facility. Their ciders are fermented only with native yeast and are unpasteurized.

These are really interesting ciders that are truly expressive of the place where they're born and we're excited to be working with them for the first time. Welcome, Wildcraft!


Now available:


Pioneer Perry
Oregon's official state fruit is the pear, and Pioneer Perry showcases it in all its glory. This is a perry made up of a mix of both wild and cultivated pears to create a drink that is off-dry and rich with huge aromatics, but remains drinkable and satisfying.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Wild Rose
Wild Rose is a truly unusual cider made with whole foraged wild roses, cold-infused into a base of ultra-complex, blended, wild fermented cider. Fresh, floral, and bright with huge aromatics.
Now available in 500ml bottles.

Mirabelle Wild Plum
Made with Oregon-grown biodynamic French Mirabelle plums, fermented whole and pressed to create a rich plum wine that is blended back into a base of tart Gravenstein-heavy cider.
