Stillwater Artisanal Ales / Other Half "Rockstar Farmer" American IPA, Maryland (22oz)

SKU #1248020

The Washington Post named the Rockstar Farmer "Beer of the Week" in June 2016, saying: "If in-the-know beer drinkers pick up a bottle of Rockstar Farmer to take a closer look at the colorful modernist label, they’ll probably end up buying it — even if they’ve never tasted a drop. This 'Farmhouse Session India Pale Ale' is a collaboration between small, Brooklyn-based Other Half Brewing, which has developed a cult following for its balanced-yet-hop-forward IPAs and imperial IPAs, and Stillwater Artisanal, a gypsy brewery that tends to throw style guidelines out the window. That partly explains the jumble of buzzwords on the label, including 'farmhouse,' 'session' and 'IPA.' Stillwater and Other Half’s joint project uses multiple strains of Brettanomyces yeast, a combination yielding aromas of peaches and pineapples, as well as a more general light funk. It obviously started as a dry saison; the grassiness and earthiness are noticeable. But there’s a pronounced hoppiness and citrus-peel bitterness at play, as well, with more stone fruit and tangy funk in the finish. Crisp, flavorful and only 4.5 percent alcohol by volume, this is an ale that doesn’t taste like all the other farmhouse beers on the shelf." (Fritz Hahn)

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
