      Citizens,

Couple of our regular American friends with some of thier limited release brews.

NEW ON THE SHELF :

 

Victory Moonglow Weizenbock 8.7%
This dark amber wheat beer features fruity and spicy aromas galore. Significant strength underlies the pleasant citric appeal of this bock beer. Redolent with the flavors of harvest fruit, Moonglow typifies the traditional weizenbock-style so thoroughly enjoyed throughout Bavaria. Left unfiltered, its unique yeast strain gives Moonglow a radiance all its own.    rb   =   96






Victory Hoppy Quad   Belgian Strong Ale 13% 

Bright and bold, the Trappist brewers who inspired this style of ale might marvel at the aromatic hints of citrus, resinous cedar and tropical fruit that flow from this special brew. Belgian-style fermentation and impressive American hops make this light bodied ale intense, inviting and entirely unique. Enjoy Hoppy Quad and Taste Victory! Intense aromas of peaches, hops and sherry combine with flavors of fresh cocktail fruits and hints of grain in this light bodied, easy drinking Quad.   rb   =  97

 

 

 Stone / Sierra Nevada NxS IPA Imperial IPA 8.2% 650ml
 For many, California is considered an epicenter for brewing innovation, particularly where hoppy IPAs  are concerned. We teamed up with longtime craft compatriots and mutual hop admirers Sierra Nevada  to create a truly one-of-a-kind IPA. This special-edition beer conveys the true character of  collaboration with touches of inventiveness and creativity. Two batches of an IPA were brewed and  expertly blended to craft this multilayered beer. The first batch was split down the middle, with 50%  being aged in gin-infused bourbon barrels and the remaining half aged in rye whiskey barrels. These  beers were blended with the fresh second batch of IPA, which was generously dry-hopped to impart  rich aromas to accompany the citrusy, piney, woody, herbaceous flavors achieved from this truly one-  of-a-kind collaboration.   rb   =  99

 



Stone Stochasticity Project Grainiac Specialty Grain 8.5%
This hoppy, deep amber-hued beer was created to shine a light on rare, unexplored grains seldom used in the brewing world. In addition to barley, wheat, rye and triticale, we added malted millet and malted buckwheat to bring the total unique grain count to nine. The earthy, nutty notes of granola found in this experimental multigrain malt bomb are complemented by the citrusy, floral flavors of four classic American hops. We dry-hopped the beer with Cascade and Centennial hops at the end, adding more citrus notes and rounding out the grain bill’s rich, bready character.   rb   =  92

 

 

 Stone Xocoveza for the Holidays & the New Year  Imperial/Double Stout 8.1%
 Our chocolaty, winter-spiced mocha stout is back. This insanely delicious take on  Mexican hot chocolate is crafted with cocoa, coffee, pasilla peppers, vanilla, cinnamon  and nutmeg. First brewed in 2014 with San Diego homebrewer Chris Banker after his  recipe was named the winner of our annual homebrew competition, it quickly became a  cross-country sensation as craft beer media and fans cheered for Stone Xocoveza…      rb  =  99

Drink well.
