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 $7 PINT
BELGIUM: This benchmark saison has been brewed at the farm-brewery since 1844. Still owned and operated by the same family. Founded by Rimaux Deridder in 1884 and passed through to Louis Dupont in 1920. Then passed to Sylva Rosier in 1945, who passed it on to his son Marc Rosier in 1964. Marc's nephew, Oliver Dedeycker took over the brewing duties in 2002. Peppery hops and fruity esters derived soley from the hops and yeast. This is the Saison that inspired hundreds of brewers from around the workd. This is still perfection. 6.5%abv

Russian River Pliny for President
CALIFORNIA-Double dry-hopped double IPA from our pals Vinnie, Natalie and crew in Santa Rosa, CA. This is their quadrennial iteration of Pliny the Elder for the preseidential election cycle. Seductive hop aroma perfectly balance by the malt. Crisp, dry finish. Can't go wrong. VOTE!! 8%abv PLEASE VOTE ON NOVEMBER 3rd! However please don't waste your vote on Pliny. It would be funny though, but... Our Democracy & our Planet depend on your vote. You can't brew beer without a healthy water supply. I kinda like drinking clean water & breathing clean air – don't you?
Russian River Pliny the Elder
WINDSOR, CALIFORNIA – A bit of history first: Vinnie Cilurzo brewed America's first Double IPA, named "Inaugural Ale", back in 1994 at Blind Pig Brewing Co, Temecula, CA. That operation closed a few years later. Then Vinnie was hired as the original and only head brewer at Korbel Champagnes Cellars' foray into brewing – Russian River Brewing Co. Vinnie and his wife, Natalie bought the brewery a few years later and opened their Santa Rosa location. The rest, as they say is history. Vinnie is the originator of this style and he still brews the best version – Pliny the Elder. Brewed with copious amounts of Amarillo, Centennial, CTZ, and Simcoe hops. Very hoppy, but not a hop bomb – the balance of the malt and hops is extraordinary. Super drinkable, but be careful…it is 8%abv. $8.50 PINT
