Avery Maharaja Imperial IPA

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.

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.
