-New Pints-

Aslan Brewing, The North Fork Brewery, & Matchless Brewing

Stranger In The Alps

This very limited collaboration beer was brewed at Matchless Brewing along with Aslan and The North Fork Brewery. It’s a hop weiss style ale (hoppy hefe for short) available on draft and in cans at the participating breweries.

Herb’s Cider

Cidré Aardbei

After 7 months of aging, Herb’s is releasing their first lambic-style cider. We’ve heard it’s a great crossover for beer drinkers, so get it before it’s gone!

Illuminati Brewing Company

No Deal Brexit- British IPA

Hopped with Galaxy and Belma then generously dry hopped with pure lupulin powder, the No Deal Brexit has a very forward aroma that is dank and earthy. Brewed entirely with @skagitvalleymaltingthat make this beer nicely balanced and a great alternative to the American style.

7% ABV

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Migration Tripel

Kulshan’s take on the simple and classic style pioneered by Westmalle Abbey brewery in Belgium, this beer is delicate, nuanced, and delicious. A rich and bready malt body is the centerpiece of this beer, complemented by light orchard fruit accents and pleasant floral and spicy hop notes. Light in body but with a slightly sweet finish, this beer epitomizes balance, and is a tribute to the rich and time-honored Belgian Trappist brewing tradition.
