Dogfish Head Saison du BUFF Maryland 6.8% abv
Saison du BUFF is a 6.8% alc/vol Saison brewed with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. The beer is brewed three times, once at each brewery using the same recipe.
This beer is collaboration between Dogfish Head, Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, CA), and Victory Brewing Company (Downington, PA).The idea for this beer germinated way back in 2003 when the three guys (Sam from Dogfish, Greg from Stone and Bill from Victory) formed the BUFF alliance (Brewers United for Freedom of Flavor) - a noble endeavor with the goal to highlight the passion and camaraderie of the American craft brew movement.
Bluepoint Rastafari Rye Pale Ale New York 7.5% abv
An award-winning deep-copper rye ale!. No children, no cry! In true Rastafarian spirit – drinking our RastafaRye Ale directly benefits underprivileged kids. Everything is Irie with our award-winning RastafaRye ale, a hearty rye malt, blended with fresh west Coast hops resulting in a delicious, deep copper ale with just the right amount of rye flavor to offset the spicy, floral characteristics of the hops. The Blue Point Brewing Company donates a portion of all RastafaRye Ale sales to a childrens charity foundation that helps orphaned and underprivileged children in the Caribbean and around the world.
Avery Majarajah Double IPA Colorado 10.3% abv
Maharaja is derived from the sanskrit words mahat, - “great” and rajan - “king”. Much like its namesake, this imperial IPA is regal, intense and mighty. With hops and malts as his servants, he rules both with a heavy hand. The Maharaja flaunts his authority over a deranged amount of hops: tangy, vibrant and pungent along with an insane amount of malted barley - fashioning a dark amber hue and exquisite malt essence. This newest Avery Dictator completes the “Dictator Series” joining the likes of The Kaiser & The Czar. Be aware that The Maharaja is a limited release only available for the summer. Welcome to his kingdom!
Cigar City Ligero Black Lager (Schwartzbier) Tampa 5.5% abv
A traditional schwarzbier, Ligero pours brown to light black with notes of roasted coffee and nutty expressions. The flavor has elements of smoke with roasted espresso beans, sticky caramel-covered almonds and notes of dry dark chocolate in the finish.
Arrogant Bastard Ale California 7.2% abv
This is an American Strong ale, with a severe bitter taste that is worthy for those willing for the extreme. Arrogant Bastard Ale is an American strong ale hop heavy with a great grapefruit citrus finish. It is marketed by warning potential consumers that they are not worthy of such a sophisticated beer, suggesting most people cannot appreciate a beer of such quality and depth. It is a popular beer among craft beer aficionados.
