Aslan Brewing Co.
Winter Warmer Red IPA
Malted with caramel and chocolate malt varieties, this deep amber version of Aslan’s annual winter warmer was made with their house ale strain, Mosaic, Cascade and Sterling hops. 6% ABV
This new London-style porter was brewed with blackstrap molasses, dried bitter orange peel and most importantly, roasted pecans. Gives notes of figs, chocolate and nuts. 5.7% ABV and 33 IBU.
Cucumber Lager (Helles)
4.8% ABV // light body + fresh cucumber + soft
A Helles style lager made with fresh organic cucumbers. The Pilsner malt used was grown and malted in Skagit Valley, making this German lager uniquely local. The light body gives the beer a sessionable quality and a clean finish. Its malt profile is soft and delicate, while the aromas and flavors of freshly cut cucumber excite the palate.
Stones Throw Brewery

A collaboration with home-brew competition finalist, this foreign extra stout has all the coffee and chocolate notes you’ve been craving this fall. 6.2% ABV and 38 IBU.
