-New Beers-

Boundary Bay Brewery

BLIPA Flight #113

packed with a payload of six hop varieties likening to 6lbs per barrel! This hazy IPA touches down in the hoppy tropics with flavors of pineapple, melon and citrus, with a first-class velvety finish.

6.5% ABV, 60 IBU

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Marzen and Festbier

Celebrate one of the best seasons within craft beer with Kulshan’s double bottle release of their marine and festbier. Especially if you’re a lager drinker, these two are a nice break from light lagers we pound the rest of the year! Say hello to delicious carmell-y dark malt for fall.

Melvin Brewing Bellingham

Dehnke Nugs IPA

Named after an esteemed employee, Dan Dehnke, Dehnke Nuggz is packed full of Citra, Lupulin, and Simcoe. This IPA is smooth, lush and powerful!

Wander Brewing

Oud Bruin

This classic Belgian-style sour aged for 1 year in an American oak foeder. Our brewers are thrilled with the result. Worth the wait and draft only.
