-New Beers-

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Amarillo Pale

The Amarillo Pale is another Small Batch beer release available only in the Sunnyland Taproom. These beers are small-batch brewed at less than 10 total barrels so get it while you can! This American Pale Ale has an aroma dominated by berries and sweet orchard fruit, but after the first sip, the complexity starts to shine. Still berry, nectarine, and peach forward followed by subtle lemon, bread, and pine. The slight bitterness pairs great with the crisp, dry finish that leaves you wanting more.

Lost Giants Cider Company

Cranapple Graf Cider Beer

his Cider Beer is a combination of apple cider, cranberry puree, malted barley and hops. Brewed in collaboration at Boundary Bay Brewing, this lighter-bodied concoction is a refreshing rush of semi-sweet apple and tart cranberry. Balanced with a light bitterness, The Cranapple Graf brings everything to love about the season to the table.

Menace Brewing

Dunkel Side of the Moon

Their newest dark, German-style lager pairs perfectly with a sausage, we heard!
