28/09/2016


Citizens,

Excellant new brews from 3 oustanding American Brewerys this week.

NEW ON THE SHELF :

 

Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine 11.6% 2016 650ml
From time to time, we like to tweak the recipes of some of our most long-standing beers—like Stone Old Guardian Barley Wine—to create unique variations. This year we’re taking it to the next level by dry-hopping it with Pekko hops—a new varietal from Washington’s Yakima Valley—which in turn add notes of stone fruit, orange, lemon and mint to this bready, toffee-like beast of a beer.          RB = 99

 

Deschutes Hop Slice Session IPA 4.5%
A trio of hops come together in this crisp session IPA. Brewed with Meyer lemon, Hop Slice balances floral hop notes and a subtle citrus kick. Malt: Pale, Honey malt, C 60, Munich. Hops: Galaxy, Azacca, Amarillo.

Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA 6.4% 
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Don’t worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.   RB  =  98

Deschutes Pinot Suave Belgian Strong Ale 11.2%
A unique Belgian-style ale with notes of Pinot grape, berries and dried fruit along with light malt and caramel flavors. This Belgian style ale was aged in Pinot Noir barrels that were filled with Pinot grape must. The result, a unique flavor profile with some delicate notes of acidity and wine tannins. The light malt body makes sure the berry flavors stay at the forefront. Malts: Black Barley, Superior Pilsner, Flaked Oats, Malted Wheat, Carared, Melanoidin Hops: US Tettnang, Crystal Other: Oregon Grape Must, Sour Wort Barrel Aging (80%) 18 months in French & American Oak barrels that previously held Pinot Noir.
       RB  =  98

Victory Vital IPA 6.5%
The IPA style can be a powerhouse of flavors and impressions. But what is vital to you? What commands your taste and attention? We packed our Vital IPA full of fresh, crisp and fruity notes driven by whole flower American hops and robust German malts. You’ll find it bright, delightfully aromatic and complex, leaving you with dry, spicy satisfaction. Taste Victory in these flavors Vital to your senses.
Malt: Pilsner, CaraPils

Flavor - Aromas of pine, tropical fruits, and stone fruits precede intense, yet refreshing flavors in this light bodied, golden IPA.
