Suburban Beverage is Back!

It's officially summer here in California--the sun is shining, the grills are fired up, and everybody's getting a little thirstier. Thankfully, one of our favorite summer refreshers has arrived just in time to quench the thirsts of sweaty beer drinkers everywhere.

That's right, not only is it now summer, but it's also Suburban Beverage season. Perennial's excellent gose is back, ready to fill your poolside glasses. It really is the perfect hot-weather quencher, a tart, hazy pale ale 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. It's delightful stuff and it's available now!

Now Available in 750ml bottles and 1/6th barrel kegs.

Also available from Perennial:

17 Mint Chocolate Stout 12x750
Hommelbier 1/6 & 1/2 bbl kegs
Saison de Lis 12x750
South Side Blonde 1/6 & 1/2 bbl kegs

It's a Celebration!

The beers of Prairie Artisan Ales are always worthy of celebration, but when a new batch of Birthday Bomb! is released, we throw an extra-enthusiastic party in our warehouse. You see, Birthday Bomb! is one of the most anticipated releases of the year--a favorite of Lime-folk and customers alike.

It's a riff on the classic Bomb!, taking the base beer in all its coffee, chili, chocolate, and vanilla-laden glory, and tacking on layers of deeper complexity and richness, thanks in part to the addition of loads of house-made caramel sauce. It's a decadent, birthday cake-like treat, and it's available now.

Now Available in 12 ounce bottles.

Also available from Prairie:

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.
Newly available in 12oz CANS!!!

If you're still thirsty for more of Prairie's incredible imperial stouts, there's Pe-Kan. 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.

The Lager We've Been Waiting For

The Lager We've Been Waiting For

The phrase "European lager" carries some baggage--it tends to bring up images of stale, skunky beer abused by months spent at sea in hot shipping containers and on the warm floors of mega-wholesalers. We don't buy that stuff, but have to admit that it hasn't always been easy to find European lagers we do love.

Brewfist's La Bassa is all we could ask for. It is everything we want out of a style designed to be clean, refreshing, and crushable. It's lean but not thin, bitter but balanced, and satisfying from first sip to last thanks to beautifully-expressed aromatics from bready barley malt and floral Tradition hops. It's a perfect lager at a price that's as palatable as the beer itself. Check it out!

Now available in 330ml bottles & 30L KeyKegs.

Also available from Brewfist:

Caterpillar Rye Pale Ale 330ml bottles
Spaghetti Western (Prairie collab imperial stout!) 330ml bottles
Spaghetti Western GRAPPA barrel-aged edition 330ml bottles & 30L kegs.

Mikkeller Beer Geek Vanilla Shake

Mikkeller's "Beer Geek" series needs no introduction. Beer Geek Breakfast and Beer Geek Brunch are the beers perhaps most responsible for catapulting the Danish brewery onto the American craft beer scene. These beers continue to impress and the longevity of their popularity is a testament to their quality.

But Mikkeller is not the kind of brewery to sit around and ride the success of just a couple beers--no, this is a seriously prolific brewery. There have been years in which Mikkeller has released more than 200 new, unique beers. Their unending experimentation has resulted in some fantastic, memorable products, including--of course--variants within the famed "Beer Geek" series.

We've seen extra-rich versions, extra-strong variants, variants aged in bourbon, scotch, brandy, calvados, and port barrels, and variants infused with mint, cherry wine, citrus, tea, and nuts. One of our standout favorites, though, is the cult-favorite Beer Geek Vanilla Shake.

This is a rich, 13% ABV version of the "Beer Geek" oatmeal stout base, loaded with vanilla and coffee flavor to yield a dense, milkshake-like, ultra-decadent sipper. And it's available now in 330ml bottles and 20L kegs.

Also available:

Red Wine Barrel-Aged Skor
Skor is an well-made version of a beer style that's hard to get right: the Belgian strong dark ale. It's smooth, strong, and fruity, with dark malt richness working in harmony with bright yeast esters. This version of Skor is taken to the next level, having aged in red wine barrels for a stint to take on a vinous, berry-like character to complement the chocolatey, leathery, bready flavors in the base beer.
It's powerful, delicious stuff available in 375ml bottles now!

Hallo Ich Bin Berliner Apricot
Mikkeller's "Hallo Ich Bin" series of fruit-infused Berliner weisses have been hugely popular since they first rolled through our doors, and the newest variant, made with apricot, is one of our favorites yet! It has loads of juicy, ripe apricot flavor atop a lean, tart, citrusy, and grainy base.
Packaged for your refreshment in 500ml cans!

...and many more great beers from Mikkeller Denmark and San Diego!
Logsdon Classics New & Old, Now in Stock

Logsdon Classics New & Old, Now in Stock

Logsdon makes authentic farmhouse beers (yes, at an actual farmhouse!) that are packed with rustic yeast character and made with skill from high quality organic ingredients. Their products have charmed us since we tasted our first sips of Seizoen in the brewery's home state of Oregon and our love for Logsdon has never waned.

Over the years, it has been exciting to watch Logsdon develop into an adventurous, well-rounded brewery, releasing fun riffs on their year-round favorites and playing with ingredients like Szechuan peppercorns and amazing Oregon-grown fruit.

Some of our favorite Logsdon beers are in stock now--check it out!

Now Available:

Cerasus is a true cult classic beer, deeply loved by our customers since it was first introduced. It's a rich sour ale, made in the style of the Flanders red ales of Belgium and given an extra flavor boost with a huge addition of Oregon-grown sweet and tart cherries. Rich, tart, juicy, and delicious.
Available in 750ml bottles while supplies last.

The Conversion
The Conversion is a wild ale in the truest sense of the term. It begins its life like any other of Logsdon's rustic farmhouse ales, but it is exposed to the elements to inoculate it with the native organisms that surround the brewery. The fermentation that ensues yields a delightful beer, full of citrusy, bright, and stone-fruity aromatics and a snappy finishing acidity.
Available in 750ml bottles while supplies last.

Fresh Hop Seizoen
Fresh-hopped with several varieties of organic Oregon-grown hops, Fresh Hop Seizoen is a lovely refresher. It's bright, herbaceous, and zesty, with fresh citrus oil aromatics alongside a grassy earthiness and a complex fermentation profile.
99 on RateBeer!
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Oak-Aged Bretta
Oak-Aged Bretta takes the brewery's iconic Seizoen Bretta and kicks it up a notch. This version is aged on oak, which softens the beer a bit and brings some vanilla and smoky notes to the party.
Now available in 750ml bottles.

Packed with yeast character. Apple and pear esters explode amidst flavors of peppercorn, strawberry, and a mellow underlying earthiness.
Now available in 375ml bottles.

Szech 'n' Brett
Szech 'n' Brett is a Lime Ventures favorite--a Brettanomyces-fermented saison subtly-spiced with Szechuan peppercorn. Super complex and like nothing else out there.
96 on RateBeer!
Now available in 750ml bottles.
