DBA (Double Barrel Ale) (2015) Firestone Walker Brewing Company
5.00 ABV - 30 IBU Our flagship brew highlights barrel-fermented batches from our patented Firestone Union blended with beer fermented in stainless steel. It opens with a biscuity toasted malt aroma and a hint of oak and vanilla. Pale malts create a smooth malty middle with ribbons of caramel, English toffee and toasted oak. A tribute to English pales traditionally fermented in cask.
Hop Heist (2015) Excel Brewing Company
4.60 ABV - 30 IBU SMaSH (single malt and single hop) pale ale showcasing a different hop varietal every batch.
Saison Renaud (2015) Mystic Brewery
6.50 ABV - IBU Sturdy farmhouse ale that was traditionally brewed in the winter, to be consumed throughout the summer months. Not so long ago it was close to being an endangered style, but over recent years there's been a massive revival; especially in the US. This is a very complex style; many are very fruity in the aroma and flavor. Look for earthy yeast tones, mild to moderate tartness. Lots of spice and with a medium bitterness. They tend to be semi-dry with many only having touch of sweetness.
Foret Saison (2015) Brasserie Dupont
7.50 ABV - IBU The name for Brasserie DuPont's organic, dry Saison makes so much sense- "Forrest"- there is as much floral citrus from the yeast as there is earthy mossy base from the hops. Very few Saisons available are this dry, where the yeast can illuminate the ingredients & elevate them into something entirely different.
Seef Bier (2015) Antwerpse Brouw Compagnie
6.50 ABV - IBU Are you ready to get weird? Seef is a legacy beer, a recipe revived from 1900s Antwerp that finally answers the question, "what did beer taste like 100 years ago?" The answer is this golden & salty Brett beer whose acidity is restrained by a mild honeycomb finish and unbelievable drinkability. Drink if you like Hefeweizens, yeast forward beers, something weird
Budweiser Budvar (Czechvar) (2015) Brewery Budweiser Budvar
5.00 ABV - IBU Our Czech Premium Lager is beer for light beer lovers. The most gentle heads of the high quality Zatec hop, virgin clear natural water and granules of selected species of Moravian barley make it the beverage of real experts. The 700-year long tradition in production of Ceske Budojovice beer and the unique, 90-day period of maturity increase its unique character. You can taste Budweiser Budvar Czech Premium Lager with all your senses. First of all you will delight your eyes with its beautiful colour and rich dense foam, then you will feel the fine aroma of the hops, in your palm you will stroke the dewy glass and, in the end, you will taste the fine to medium strong bitterness. You will remember well, our perfect lager.
Basandare Domaine Bordatto
5.00 ABV - 0 IBU Bordatto’s Bitxinxo Aphaule started his career as a winemaker but soon fell in love with cider. He founded Bordatto under the notion that he could craft a better cider by applying farming methods utilized in vineyards to apple orchards. Terroir is often overlooked when people talk about cider, but Bitxinxo feels that characteristics of the site such as soil, orientation, tree age and varietal are just as important to cider as they are to wine and he’s out to prove it. Multiple green harvests and extensive pruning are employed in his four hectares of orchards, all of the apples are hand-harvested and only native yeasts are used in all stages of fermentation. The Basandere, the “wild woman” of Basque mythology, is a finer and slightly sweeter take on the traditional Basque cider. Produced solely from apples grown on the estate, this cider blends selected apples from the 30 different varietals grown there. Each of the different apple varietals are fermented seperately with indigenous yeast for 3 months. Bottled aged for 3 months before release. Mild carbonation occurs naturally in bottle, no dosage. There is 20g/L of residual sugar.
Mönchshof Kellerbräu (2015) Kulmbacher Brauerei AG
0.00 ABV - IBU Monschoff Kellerbier is unfiltered brown lager, bottle conditioned, it is a heritage recipe in the vein of Oktoberfest Märzen Beer but isn't called that because it most likely predates the festival. LIQUID BREAD. Drink if you like Firestone's DBA but ready for something different.
Kulmbacher Eisbock (2015) Kulmbacher Brauerei AG
9.20 ABV - IBU
Guinness Draught (2015) Guinness
4.30 ABV - IBU Pasteurised. Usually called Draught; sometimes called Cold or Extra Cold - same beer, but served colder. Launched in 1961. Ingredients: Pale ale malt, about 25 to 30% flaked barley, and about 10% roasted barley, with no other grains or sugars; several hop varieties, mainly Goldings (pellets and isomerized extract); a flocculent head-forming ale yeast.
Guinness Extra Stout (2015) Guinness
5.00 ABV - IBU Guinness Extra Stout is steeped in heritage - a whole costume drama in a bottle. It
Panil Barriquée (2015) Birrificio Torrechiara
8.00 ABV - IBU "Sour Beers" may be new to us today, but we've been drinking beers like them since 5000BC. Like the earliest beers, Panil Barriquee is brown sour funky & inexplicably satisfying. The acidity from the wild yeast would be overwhelming if it wasn't rounded & anchored by dark fruit from Bordeaux barrel maturation.
Haandbakk (2015) HaandBryggeriet
8.00 ABV - 20 IBU This is a recreation of a Norwegian style naturally soured ale, aged in oak barrels for 18 months for the authentic sour flavour.
Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale (2015) Samuel Smith Old Brewery

Coniston Bluebird Bitter (2015) WH Brakspear & Sons
0.00 ABV - IBU Ask for the most standard of beers at any English Pub and the barman will give you type of beer called a Bitter-or Ordinary Bitter. But Coniston's Bluebird is not bitter and it's anything but Ordinary. The best English brews like this are a harmonious balance of malt, hops, yeast: where you can't see where one ingredient ends and another begins. It's rare to find a English beer that travels well, and this one does, a perfect pairing to the arrival of autumn. This was named after a type of boat called a Bluebird, an Englishman named Sir Donald Campbell used it to set several water speed records in the 50s. He died in an accident on The lake he raced on Coniston, NE England, his Bluebird was going over 300 MPH.
