From the brewery: "Bell's Two Hearted Ale is defined by its intense hop aroma and malt balance. Hopped exclusively with the Centennial hop varietal from the Pacific Northwest, massive additions in the kettle and again in the fermenter lend their characteristic grapefruit and pine resin aromas. A significant malt body balances this hop presence; together with the signature fruity aromas of Bell's house yeast, this leads to a remarkably drinkable American-style India Pale Ale."

Black House is an oatmeal coffee stout bursting with coffee aroma and flavor. Modern Times is one of the only breweries in the world to roast their own coffee, which allows them to be exceptionally picky about which coffees are used and how those beans are roasted. The result is an abundantly flavorful beer that's incredibly complex and aromatic, with loads of roast character and a chocolate-covered espresso bean finish. So creamy. So delicious.
City of the Sun is a big, fruity, pungent, sticky, delicious IPA. Mosaic & Motueka give it a very fruity hop character, with Simcoe providing enough of a piney backbone to prevent it from going off the deep end. The complex but unobtrusive malt character gives it a medium body and a platform for the saturated hop flavor.
Left Hand Brewery pioneered bottled nitro beers, and the milk stout is one of the originals. This sweet stout has notes of brown sugar, coffee and a delicious creamy mouthfeel provided by the nitrogen. Pour this hard (flipped a full 180 degrees upside down) to watch it cascade into the glass.
Anchor Steam? The perennially popular beer brewed in San Francisco since 1896 derives its name from 19th century slang. "Steam" was a widely used nickname for beer brewed on the West Coast, and this Bay Area brew epitomizes NorCal charm. Made with an all-malt mash in a copper brew house, the beer has a malty nose with a hint of red fruit and caramel. Smooth and enjoyable.
From the brewery: "RODENBACH Alexander is a blend of 2/3rd aged RODENBACH (2 year matured beer from oak standing Foeders) and 1/3rd young ale, then macerated with sour cherries. 'We were inspired to brew RODENBACH Alexander over two years ago, due in large part to the popular requests among beer connoisseurs, bar owners and beer lovers throughout the United States,' said Rudi Ghequire, master brewer of RODENBACH brewery. 'RODENBACH Alexander pays homage to one of our original founders, rewards our loyal customers and simultaneously allows a new generatio... Read More »
Heavily hopped with American varieties such as Simcoe and Amarillo, resulting in notes of citrus, stone fruit and wonderful hoppy funk, all wrapped up in a super smooth body.
94 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of America’s most cherished and sought-after pilsners, this is a terrific example of an American pils that’s sure to please any lover of the style. The hops are big and floral on the nose, with more biscuity malt in the mouth playing alongside the notes of fresh citrus. Full and creamy with moderate carbonation and low alcohol, a soft bitterness follows through the long finish and closes on a sweet hop oil note. An excellent companion to food, though certainly enjoyable all on its own as well." (8/2010) K&L Notes: From Pennsylvania's Victory Brewing Company, the ... Read More »
Resin is an ode to the sticky quintessence of hops - this IPA is created by extracting the alluring nectar from every precious citrus, pine, dank and herbal cone and channeled it all into one vessel. Now that's Mad Science.

This bright, everyday beer is sparkling and fresh, and is expertly brewed using only the noble raw materials allowed by centuries-old German law. A showpiece of the brewing art in Bavaria, and a great treat for the beer expert or beer novice! 5.6% abv
Who says great beer can't come in a can? Those people have obviously never cracked a can of Stiegl's Goldbräu. This Austrian beer is perfectly balanced, mildly hoppy and wonderfully refreshing. At just 4.9% ABV, it's perfect for game day, camping, hot weather or after work, and it drinks well on its own or with food.
A Gold medal winner at the 2013 L.A. International Commercial Beer Competition. Brewer's notes: "Brewed in the centuries-old Belgian tradition, our White Ale features the complex flavors of the classic witbier, including orange peel and coriander--all brewed with pure Icelandic water that delivers a cool smoothness that is flavorful and refreshingly drinkable."
A tropical India Pale Ale brewed with locally grown passion fruit, orange, and guava
The "Left Eye Right Eye" features a blend of 5 hop varieties that delivers an intense hop experience. Big tangerine and grapefruit aromas power up, while the malt flavors are purposefully subdued. Fresh and lively hop character with a smooth, yet bold finish.
From the brewery: "One of the earliest examples of the Russian Imperial Stout in the United States, Expedition Stout offers immensely complex flavors crafted specifically with vintage aging in mind, as its profile will continue to mature and develop over the years. A huge malt body is matched to a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruits, and other aromas. Intensely bitter in its early months, the flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages."
From the brewery: "Geez—not another IPA! That’s right, this is not just another IPA. Consider it a next generation IPA. A slightly sweet, lower ABV, IPA providing welcome relief from the onslaught of bitter hop bombs out there. Its complex aromatic layers, suggest mango, melon, pine and berries, are driven by whole-leaf Mosaic and Citra hops which are then balanced by an acidulated and pilsner malt bill. Finally, its silky smooth mouthfeel will leave you asking for “mo!”"

From the brewery: "Amalgamator is a West Coast-Style India Pale Ale that's bursting with unique aromas and flavors. A light base of American 2-row malt makes way for the hops to take the stage. Amalgamator is hopped in the kettle with Amarillo, Warrior, Columbus, and Mosaic, a newer American variety. The dry hop is a massive charge of Mosaic that lays down an amalgam of passion fruit, dank resin, and citrus aromas."
Here is the debut of Anchor Dry-Hopped Steam Beer, a limited release inspired by Anchor Steam Beer, the original California Common. San Francisco’s famous Anchor Steam Beer is unique for its brewing process which has evolved over many decades and is like no other in the world. To give this classic beer a radically traditional twist, Brewmaster Scott Ungermann created Anchor Dry-Hopped Steam Beer. Made with its own special recipe, the brew is dry-hopped with a blend of new and traditional hops. The result weds the rich maltiness of Anchor Steam with an a... Read More »
Part of Deschute's "Reserve" collection, the 2016 vintage of the Abyss is brewed using pale, black, chocolate, black barley, roasted barley, and wheat malts and Millennium, Nugget, Styrian, and German Northern Brewer hops. After the addition of Blackstrap molasses, brewer’s licorice, vanilla beans, cherry bark, the beer spends 12 months in ex-bourbon, Oregon oak, and Pinot Noir barrels. From the brewery: "A deep, dark Imperial Stout, The Abyss has almost immeasurable depth and complexity. Hints of molasses, licorice and other alluring flavors make it som... Read More »
90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Highly Recommended* Rich amber color; silver-white foam. Dry, wafer-like notes of barley and brown rice at first; later nosings are sweeter and maltier. Palate entry shows a velvety texture and moderately sweet taste; midpalate bursts with firm, properly hoppy and wafer/cracker-like tastes. Ends up grainy, more dry than sweet and refreshing." (8/2005) K&L Notes: When I graduated from college more than a decade ago, I went backpacking through Europe. And while there's nothing unique about this in itself, I prided myself on finding places to visit that were off the b... Read More »

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Brewed with Citra and Mosaic hops, this IPA is wonderfully fragrant. It leads with a mélange of fruit aromas: mandarin orange, ruby-red grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, pineapple and papaya. Those notes carry through to the medium-weight palate, supported by flavors of bread dough and lightly caramelized malt. A dank stickiness adds depth to the palate and length to the finish." (9/2013) K&L Notes: A juicy citrus and grapefruit flavor profile. As if fresh Citra and Mosaic hops were squeezed straight into the bottle.
This ultra hoppy, ultra dank, west coast IPA features huge amounts of whole cone 07270 hops as well as Citra, Mosaic, and Ella in the dry hop.

What is it about the West Coast that makes the local people so happy and the local beer so hoppy? And is there a connection? This intensely hoppy brew should really be called a TIPA, since the hop approach is threefold: hops in the boil, more hops in the giant hopback, and added to that, an incredible amount of dry-hopping for that serious hop bite. Eeeeee. 8% ABV
From the brewery: "This is our take of the renowned Bohemian-style pale lager that you might find in Bavaria or the Czech Republic. Ours is a little more golden, rounder, and a little more malt driven than many other versions. The beer possesses strong hop character that is balanced by its rich, round, malty palate. Refreshing and balanced, this beer is a favorite of our winery friends during harvest."
From the brewery: "An alternative to dark and heavy winter warmers and stouts, Winter White is a stylish and refreshing Wheat Ale. Fermented with a Belgian ale yeast, this blend of barley and wheat malts yields a mixture of clove and fruity aromas, all without the use of any spices. Deliberately brewed to retain a cloudy appearance, Winter White is a beer for embracing winter."
This is a small-batch, traditional oatmeal stout that is rarely available and hard to forget!
According to the brewery: "The Stiegl-Radler Grapefruit is a mix of Stiegl-Goldbräu and fruit juice that is invariably natural and has no artificial sweeteners added to it. The grapefruit juice lends this a naturally cloudy appearance and a tangy fruit flavor, creating a succulent and fruity taste sensation with a refreshing finish."
A seasonal offering. "As the Kernville temps dip our spicy rye Winter Ale warms up the taps. It gets its kick from rye but has plenty of hops to balance out the malt."
"This is our take of the renowned Bohemian-style pale lager that you might find in Bavaria or the Czech Republic," says Heater Allen. "Ours is a little more golden, rounder, and a little more malt driven than many other versions. The beer possesses strong hop character that is balanced by its rich, round, malty palate. Refreshing and balanced, this beer is a favorite of our winery friends during harvest."
A Simcoe & El Dorado-hopped IPA... The aroma is of pine, red berries, mango & watermelon. Delicious & refreshing!
"An imperialized version of Fortunate Islands," Modern Times' "Mega Fortunate Islands" is "Mega Citra, mega Amarillo, mega tasty." It's a smooth, wheat beer loaded with tropical and citrus notes.
Nothing refreshes more than this naturally cloudy wheat beer with its wonderful yeasty fragrance and taste. Goes especially well with that Bavarian speciality 'Weisswurst' or white sausage! Though hot dogs off the grill are not a bad substitute!
Hopheads rejoice! Citraholic is a "modern" West Coast-style IPA that's focused on Citra, one of our favorite hops. They also blend in Warrior, Columbus and Simcoe hops to round out the blend. It's double dry hopped for two weeks, and the result is intense citrus, tropical fruits, melon and gooseberry notes.
From the brewery: "Revel in the best U.S. varieties of hops, in their natural, whole-flower form, as they bring a vital, pungent reality to the soul of a wild element in our dangerously satisfying Dirt Wolf Double IPA. This dangerously delicious recipe features often subtle, but sometimes assertive signatures of American hop varieties. Look for: Citra: heavy citrus aroma, fruity flavor; Chinook: grapefruit, resinous pine; Simcoe: dry, piney; and Mosaic: earthy and mildly floral, with notes of sweet citrus and spice. Food Pairings: Burgers, BBQ and hard c... Read More »
An "A" from the Beer Advocate. This American style IPA looks like liquid gold in your glass with a creamy white head. It smells like fresh cut citrus with a hint of pine resin, caramel and yeast that gives way to tropical fruit scents as the beer comes to temp. In the mouth it has stone fruit richness with a hint of hoppy bitterness. It feels smooth and refreshing with well-integrated alcohol and a medium-bodied texture.
Drie Fonteinen is the only remaining traditional geuze blender in Belgium, using 100% spontaneously fermented lambic beer, aged in oak casks, with no artificial sweeteners or other additives. The blendery is connected to the very popular Drie Fonteinen Restaurant in Beersel, on the outskirts of Brussels. The proprietor, Armand Debelder, buys pure lambic from three breweries in Belgium, ages them in oak and blends them, employing the skill, knowledge and supreme passion for real geuze that his father handed down to him. Drie Fontenein’s Geuze and fruit La... Read More »
From the brewery: "Mandarina’s tart and citrusy profile makes it the perfect beer for warm, sunny days. The combination of crisp tartness, tangerines and the citrus aromas of Mandarina Bavaria and Citra hops puts this farmhouse ale’s fruity aroma over the top. Pair this summer sipper with a day at the beach, fresh seafood and citrus-infused desserts."
This India Pale Ale has a strong malt character and a large hop profile. This IPA is dry hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo hops to give it that great floral aroma and citrus finish. If you like a strong IPA, you'll find this one ...(wait for it)... .....just outstanding.

From the brewery: "Villager IPA puts hop aroma first with a unique blend of bittering and aroma hops. These unusual suspects create an aroma that’s citrusy and floral with the faintest bit of forest. Its mild bitterness and simple malt bill keep it easy and drinkable. HOPS: JARRYLO, WARRIOR, CENTENNIAL"

Duet is a classic West Coast IPA made with Simcoe and Amarillo hops working together in blissful harmony! 1.065 OG/45 IBU/7% abv
The laws protecting the brewing of Kolsch are as strict as Germany's Purity Law of 1516. Kolsch Beer can only be brewed within the city of Cologne. As the best-known Kolsch brewery, Gaffel's flavor is derived from an ale yeast that is "lagered," or aged in cold cellars. Gaffel is pale and faintly fruity with a crisp hop finish. The city of Cologne (or Koln) is located on the Rhine River and north of Munich. In Koln, Germany's third largest city, Kolsch beer is nearly the only beer people drink. Gaffel Kolsch is the town favorite.
From the brewery: "Intense fresh cacao flavors swirl with popping coconut aromas, all supported by a semi-sweet porter made from loads of dark chocolate and extra dark caramel malt. This limited release specialty comes around once a year to satisfy that sweet tooth, so get 'em while you can before they disappear. At 6.5% ABV and 25 IBUs, this choconut goodness will have you yellin' "Pass. Dash. Hit." all winter long."
This strong stout is made with Roasted Barley, Black, Aromatic, Special B, and 2-Row malts and Columbus hops. Malt-forward and heavily coffee-flavored.
