Allagash Haunted House

MAINE - Roasted Barley and Blackprinz malt curse this beer with a gravely dark hue. Hopped with Tettnang, Chinook, and Saaz hops, this beer ends with a ghost of coffee-flavored bitterness and hauntingly complex malty palate. 6.66%abv $6.50

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  $7 PINT

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

Russian River STS Pils

CALIFORNIA - A classic European style Pilsner. Straw in color and often times slightly hazy as it is unfiltered.  Hop forward with a mild malt foundation, strong lager yeast characteristic, and a dry, bitter finish. Damn! This is a World-Class Pilsner. Perfectly balanced and oh, so quaffable. Seriously- try this.  5.35%abv  $8 PINT

Scaldis Noel

BELGIUM - A full bodied strong ale. Bronze in color. Called "Bush de Noel" in Belgium. Dry hopped for four weeks. Sweet taste initially that gives way to a nice dry finish. 12%abv $10

Sierra Nevada Narwhal Stout

Threes Brewing Kicking & Screaming

NEW YORK – These folks brew amazing Lagers, Pilners in particular. This Pilsner was fermented in stainless steel, as normal. Then this liquid is lagered for an additional 30+ days in oak foeders. Aging in oak was a traditional method for 100 years befor they transitioned to stainless. Try this if you've never had a barrel aged Pilsner (if you've had this style before, then you know to order one). 5.2%abv  $8 Pint
