• Mikkeller Yeast Series Brettanomyces Lambicus

  • Evil Twin Femme Fatale Yuzu Pale

    This beer is packed with flavor but never feels out of balance…easily my favorite Evil Twin beer so far.

  • Russian River Consecration

    I’ve been holding onto this one for some time since my last trip to California and finally decided to pull it out and experience what I’ve been told is a nearly overwhelming amount of flavor.

  • Adroit Theory The Devil Made Me

    I really have nothing bad to say about this immensely flavorful and enjoyable beer. Simply fantastic

  • Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA

    While I may have largely moved on to more adventurous and obscure brews, Stone rarely disappoints, especially when it comes to their annual Anniversary ales.
