Allagash White

MAINE - Arguably the best Belgian-Style White beer made in the US.  Crisp & refreshing with hints of coriander and orange peel.  Rob Tod's interpretation of a traditional Belgian wheat beer, Allagash White is brewed with a generous portion of wheat and a special blend of spices, this beer is light and slightly cloudy in appearance, with a spicy aroma. 5%abv

Avery Hog Heaven

COLORADO-Imperial Red IPA. An intense dry-hop nose and the alcohol content balance perfectly for a caramel malt backbone. Dangerously drinkable. 9.2%abv

Avery IPA

COLORADO - In the 1700's one crafty brewer discovered that a healthy dose of hops and an increased alcohol content preserved his ales during the long voyage to India, to quench the thirst of British troops. Boulder's own Avery Brewing Company tips their hat to that historic innovation by brewing Colorado's hoppiest pale ale. Avery IPA has a citrusy, floral bouquet and a rich, malty finish. Brewed by hopheads for hopheads!

Avery Perzik Saison

COLORADO - a crisp and refreshing saison with peaches added. 6.4%

Avery Raspberry Sour

COLORADO- Barrel-aged sour with ripe red raspberries. Lactic acidity and barrel nuance.  6.5%abv

Bear Republic Heritage

CALIFORNIA-A Scottish-style Wee Heavy w/Scottish malts and lightly hopped with East Kent Goldings. Inspiring, but please don’t play with your bagpipes in public. 7%abv

Bear Republic Old Scoutter

CALIFORNIA-An American version of a classic British Barley Wine. A rich and hoppy beer brewed in honor of beloved brewery dog Scoutt. Malty, Hoppy, and warming.  10.4%abv

Birrifico del Ducato Torrente Fragrante

ITALY-Aromas and flavors of ripe citrus, peach, tropical fruit and pine culminating in a dry and herbaceous bitterness. 7%abv

Bullfrog Edgar IPA

PENNSYLVANIA-A tribute to Edgar Allen Poe, and his short story "Hop Frog". Much like the story, this Hop Frog bites back! 7.5%abv

Chouffe Houblon

BELGIUM-Monk's served the very first keg outside of Belgium.  Chris handed a 5 liter keg to Tom at the Zythos beer festival in St. Nikolaas several years back.  Brought home as checked luggage.  Inspired by a US Imperial IPA, but with a classic belgian twist. 9%abv

De Dolle Dulle Teve

BELGIUM - "Mad Bitch" from the mad brewers. Kris' version of a Tripel. Lots of hops & candi sugar in the nose. Sweet, golden fruit palate. Citrus finish.

DeMolen Cease & Desist

NETHERLANDS - Originally named Rasputin, but North Coast Brewery sued over the use of "their" name.  Menno named it "Disputin" for a batch or two.  Now named Cease & Desist.  Russian Imperial stout with a ton of dark roasted malt.  Full body.  Dark as a moonless night.  Notes of bittersweet chocolate and dark fruit.  Os so very good.  10.7%abv

DeRanke XX Bitter

BELGIUM-Blonde ale with an inordinate amount of hops, by Belgian standards, that is. Hops in nose and finish, balanced with substantial malt character. 6%abv

Draai Laag Black Briar

PENNSYLVANIA-Somewhere between a Flemish red and a blackberry lambic, this wild ale is musty, earthy, funky and sour. There is a subtle sweetness and rounded fruit flavor from aging on blackberries in the cask. 8%abv

Firestone Walker Pivo Pils

CALIFORNIA- Classically rendered pilsner with a West Coast dry-hopped twist.  Floral aroma, spicy herbal notes.  5.3%abv

La Trappe Blond

NETHERLANDS-Fruity, malty and refeshing with a smooth dry finish. Notes of mango and apple. 6.5%abv

Lost Abbey Devotion

CALIFORNIA - Originally brewed for Monk's Café's 10th Anniversary.  This is now a year round beer for them.  This was inspired by Tomme & Tom sharing a bottle of Westvleteren Blonde at Monk's.  We loved the low-ish alcohol and fresh hop character.  Tomme did a great job capturing the spirit of that beer.

Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale

BELGIUM - That's right, our own private label brewed for us by the family-owned Van Steenberge brewery, just outside Ghent, Belgium. Medium body, red color, somewhat fruity nose, malt flavor with a slight lactic taste. Great Stuff! A real thirst quencher and palate cleanser.

Oxbow Luppolo

MAINE-Italian-style pilsner 5%abv

Port Brewing Summer Pale Ale

CALIFORNIA-Massively hoppy West Coast-style pale ale made with Chinook, Cascade, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops.  Dank and subtle pine nose. Starts with a bite from the hops and finishes with a refreshing tangerine bitterness 6%abv

Port Brewing Wipeout IPA

CALIFORNIA-A hugely hopped but very well balanced West Coast IPA with Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe Delicious  7%abv

Russian River Pliny the Elder

CALIFORNIA- This is the original Double IPA, made by mistake, natch.  More hops balanced by bigger malt.  Aromas of grapefruit dominate.  Finishes surprisingly dry, yet not too bitter.  8%abv 

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

CALIFORNIA-Piney and grapefruit aromas from the use of whole-cone American hops. An all natural & refreshingly bold classic. 5.6%abv

St. Feuillien Saison

A tad darker than most saisons.  A bit of spice in the nose and finish from the hops.  Medium body.  Nice, dry finish

Tired Hands Mr Death B. Reath

PENNSYLVANIA-Collaboration IPA brewed with Oats and kettle hopped with Columbus and the brand new Idaho 7. Intensely dry hopped with Idaho 7 (impressive sounding, but it is no Chicago 7) 6.3%abv

Bear Republic Red Rocket Ale

CALIFORNIA-A bastardized Scottish style red ale. This full bodied and hoppy brew finishes on the palate with sweet, caramel malt flavors. 6%abv

Dogfish Head Festina Peche

A refreshing neo-BerlinerWeisse fermented with honest-to-goodness peaches to only 4.5% abv! There were once over 70 breweries in Berlin brewing the BerlinerWeisse style (characterized by its intense tartness). Sadly, there are only two breweries left there. Berliner Weisse is traditionally fermented with lactic cultures to produce its acidic or green apple-like character. It is delicately hopped with a pale straw color and served as an aperitif or summertime quencher (good for the sweaty months!). To soften the intense sourness, Berliner Weisse is traditionally served with a dash of essence of woodruff or raspberry syrup. BUT in the Festinal Peche the natural peach sugars are eaten by the yeast, the fruit complexity is woven into both the aroma and the taste of the beer so there is N

CALIFORNIA - Perhaps my favorite West Coast IPA. Solid hop aromas and finish backed up by the perfect balance of malt. 6.1%abv

Saison Dupont

BELGIUM-This benchmark saison has been brewed at the farm-brewery since 1844.. It’s perfection. 6.5%abv

Tired Hands Helles Other People
