-New Pints-

Aslan Brewing Co.

Fremontii

In collaboration with Brouwers Cafe & the Masonry, this beer is a blend of three barrels. 2/3rds of the blend consisted of a rustic bock style beer, lagered in clean French oak puncheons throughout the winter of 2017. In the spring of 2018, it was re-barreled into second-use bourbon barrels and well conditioned wine casks. We included one of each in this beer. The other 1/3rd of the blend is a 30-month-old cask of mixed culture pale saison.

Das Boot

Festbier is the modern Oktoberfest style, otherwise known as Wiesn. Originally introduced by the Paulaner Brauerei, now all six Munich braueries who make up Oktoberfest pour this style. This contemporary lager is much lighter, similar to a strong Helles.
Das Boot is made up of two imported Pilsener malts, a touch of Carahell, and hopped moderately with Mittelfruh and Perle for delicately complex hop profile. It was double decoction mashed to bring the rich malt flavor to the surface. This beautiful lager is fully aged, and 100% naturally carbonated.

5.6% ABV

Boundary Bay Brewery

Batch 7000

Batch 7000 is an Imperial IPA that commemorates their 7000th brew and 24th anniversary. This Northwest-Style Imperial IPA’s bright-golden color is complemented with floral and sweet aromatics. Batch 7000’s immense hop flavor harmonizes with a honey-caramel sweetness. A smooth, warming finish complements its balanced lingering bitterness and residual caramel flavors.

8.8% ABV

Wander Brewing

Blood Orange Millie

This sour favorite is back in bottles and on draft!

Festbier

This beer has a crowd of Vienna and Munich malts in the mash and they began howling “ein Prosit” at the lightly floral, low-key fruity Hallertau Mittelfruh hops. Classic, amber, well balanced. Eins, zwei, drei, g’suffe!

Synthesizah Kviek IPA

An electric blend of Galaxy and Azacca hops at dryhop along with hot fermenting Kveik yeast collectively burst forth a huge pineapple aroma with a ripe melon flavor that you cannot ignore.
