New Beer Friday, Sale in Full Swing Edition (Sept 7)

Preamble by Steve Siciliano

I’d like to remind everyone that our annual Homebrew and Winemaking Customer Appreciation Sale is currently in full swing and will continue through the close of business on Sunday, September 9.

If you are already a homebrewer or winemaker, you're going to want to take advantage of the 15% discount on most equipment and supplies. You'll also want to check out the items on the deeply discounted list. If you've been thinking about taking the plunge into these life-enriching hobbies, now's the time to do it as the beer and winemaking equipment kits are both heavily discounted.

Don't forget that we will be offering free German wieners, sauerkraut and draft root beer to all our great customers on Saturday, September 8. See you then.


New and Returning Beer

  • Aleman Brewing LadiesMan, $2.09/12oz - "Freshly clipped Lemonthyme gives our light-bodied American Wheat a subtle aromatic, citrusy punch" (source).
  • Aleman Brewing SoulMan, $2.09/12oz - "Deeply caramelized sugar provides roasted notes that blend in nicely with a rich malty base. Paired with a mild, underlying hop character for a long, dry finish" (source).
  • Aleman Brewing TheMan, $2.09/12oz - "The Man is't an oppressive governmental regime. It's not a hilarious odd-couple flick with Jules Winnfield and the dad from American Pie. It's not even a hit single from recording mega-star Aloe Blacc. The Man is simply the boss. It's DayMan without the coffee. It's our base IPA and a beer we plan to bastardize in every way imaginable. In it's most basic form, The Man will contrast a reliable malt bill with a rotating hop character based on whatever hops are fresh and making us particularly horny. But, whether it be a single-hop variety or a balanced blend, The Man will always deliver on its crisp, clean, bitter promise" (source).
  • Bell's Best Brown, $2.19/16oz - "A smooth, toasty brown ale, Best Brown is a mainstay in our fall lineup. With hints of caramel and cocoa, the malt body has the depth to stand up to cool weather, but does not come across as heavy. This balancing act is aided by the generous use of American hops" (source).
  • Boulevard Tough Kitty, $1.89/12oz - "Tough Kitty Milk Stout features layers of caramel and chocolate malt complexity provided by Cara 120, Cara 300 and Patagonia Black Pearl. The addition of rolled oats in the mash tun and lactose, commonly referred to as milk sugar, in the wort kettle lend a round, silky mouthfeel to the beer. Subtle hopping with Bravo and Cascade creates just enough bitterness to prevent the beer from being overly cloying. Deep black in color, Tough Kitty opens with aromas of bittersweet chocolate, espresso and toffee that transition to flavors of the same. The addition of lactose, a non-fermentable sugar, works with the rolled oats to deliver a creamy, lingering finish" (source).
  • Brewery Vivant Velvet Stud, $3.79/16oz - "Aging in neutral oak barrels rounds out the edges of this Belgian style stout giving it a smooth, velvety character. The element of time coaxes some complexity out of the wood and beautifully blends with the dark malts in this beer. Expect notes of chocolate, hints of freshly roasted coffee with a dry oak finish. The extra steps of wood aging can drive our brewers crazy… but at the end of the day, being proud of your craft makes it all worthwhile" (source).
  • BruWorx Bullseye Ultimatum, $3.09/12oz - "Bullseye Ultimatum is a bold cider made from a refreshing blend of sweet and tart apples. Hibiscus and orange zest work perfectly together, with floral notes of cranberry and citrus. Belgian candi sugar provides a touch of toffee sweetness, while a pinch of pink salt elevates the drinkability. Light carbonation brings it all together for a crisp finish" (source).
  • Dogfish Head Punkin, $2.79/12oz - "A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin, brown sugar & spice" (source).
  • Hoppin' Frog Mango Turbo Shandy, $4.49/12oz - "Born from European tradition, our shandy is a refreshing combination of lemon and light malt flavors. Unlike traditional shandy’s, Turbo Shandy revs it up a couple notches with a high test, full flavored approach as only Hoppin’ Frog can do" (source).
  • Lagunitas Supercluster, $1.79/12oz - "Super Cluster is a Citra-Hopped Mega Ale of intergalactic proportions. Everything we've learned about making hop-forward beer: Pale, cold, alcoholic, and bitter" (source).
  • New Belgium Tartastic Lemon Ginger, $1.79/12oz - "Brace yourself for a refreshingly tart snap. Tartastic's lacto sour profile and fruity, spicy undertones enliven the taste buds with each bright, sessionable sip" (source).
  • North Peak Hail, $2.09/12oz - "Golden, light bodied delicioucness dripping with notes of hoppy goodness throwing citrus, apricot, and peach flavors like bombs. Made with maize and blue to celebrate the U " (source).
  • North Peak Sparta, $2.09/12oz - "A nice crisp malt profile, deliciously juicy body and an overall beautifully balanced beer. There are notes of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, and apricot, backed with a hint of pine" (source).
  • Peckham's Boysenberry Cider, $5.49/12oz - "This delightful cider is made with heritage Moutere apples and boysenberries grown in the Peckham’s orchard. 120 grams of Riwaka Choice boysenberries in a pint deliver a fresh-picked, intense berry taste, but the background cider still comes through. It pours a rich deep red" (source).
  • Rekorderlig Pear Cider, $3.19/12oz - "This aromatic pear cider from Sweden will delight the senses. Best served over ice" (source).
  • Rekorderlig Strawberry Lime Cider, $3.19/12oz - "Rekorderlig Strawberry-Lime Cider was the first to explore this unique flavour combination" (source).
  • Ridge Caramel Apple Cider, $2.09/12oz - No commercial description.
  • Sierra Nevada Trip in the Woods Tequilla Barrel Aged Otra Vez, $21.39/750ml - "Otra Vez Gose aged in Reposado Tequila oak barrels with lime and agave" (source).
  • Southern Tier Battle in Four Dimensions, $3.99/16oz - "Battle in Four Dimensions has all the hallmarks of a big IPA with bright grapefruit-like aromas and flavors of Amarillo hops. It’s 8.5% abv and purposefully brewed to a moderate 30 IBU for easy crushing. We could have stopped there, but we didn’t. Crack this can open, pour it into your favorite glass and be shocked by the supernova red color from the addition of just a touch of beet juice. Into the fourth dimension we go" (source).

  1. I can honestly say that the man beer encouraged me to buy, I would like to try this taste of single-hop and the bitterness it offers. It can really be something very good for a beer drinker.
