For the last tasting of 2016, we are going BIG, as in all 750ml bottles and all awesomeness. For the continuing Christmas season we have two holiday themed releases (Smartmouth 'Santa's Helper' Red IPA and The Bruery '9 Ladies Dancing') as well as two new releases made during the holiday season (Sierra Nevada 'Trip In The Woods' Barrel Aged Biere de Garde and Lickinghole Creek 'Virginia Black Bear' Russian Imperial Stout). For the cider fans we also have a unique treat called Pommeau du Normandie, a fortified blend of unfermented apple juice and distilled Calvados, This style of beverage is common in regions famous for making distillates as it combines the sweetness of the base fruit with the complexity of the liquor, also mitigating the burn of the high alcohol. Locally the Kluge/Trump Cru has made the style very popular as well. Hope to see you here!
We are DEEEEEEEP in the throes of holiday beer cheer here so it's time to start pouring a few!
