“This light beer from Germany is accessible and enjoyable by anyone, but is still beloved by beer connoisseurs. Reissdorf is light bodied with a subtle sweetness up front and a crisp but gentle hop bitterness on the finish—just strong enough to ease harsh sunrays. Like all perfect beach beers, Reissdorf is effortless to consume in vast quantities, but rewarding to savor slowly."
“Deviant Dale’s is a massive American IPA, sold in 16-ounce cans perfect for drinking in any harsh environment where a glass bottle may be too fragile. Everything about this beer is over-the top, from the 8.0% alcohol to the incredibly bright intense hops. Fortunately, it stays in control and manages to be the perfect blend of excess and balance.”
“This beer is quickly becoming a classic, but like your favorite song you won’t mind enjoying it over and over again. Everything about Lagunitas exudes a devil may care attitude perfectly suited for a rock and roll lifestyle. Like a jam band grooving on stage, this beer hits all the right notes for an IPA, but manages to remain mellow and never gets too harsh. So grab one, all the cool kids are doing it.”
“Three Philosophers is as rich and complex as your inner monologue, but its 9.7% abv will also help you unwind your thoughts. It’s the beer Thoreau would have imbibed while writing Walden. With notes of dark fruits up front, Three Philosophers also gets some tartness and acidity from a cherry limbic that’s added in small doses to the finished brew. Best of all, Three Philosophers is a beer that ages well, so if you decide to stay lost in the wilderness, you’ll have a companion for years to come.”
“This classic Biere de Garde is a hearty ale with strong malt character and an unmistakable note of clove on the finish. Like the classic cities of Europe, each visit with 3 Monts will reveal more character and unexplored depths, while still managing to feel fresh and exciting today.”
“This sour ale contains flavors and complexities that are largely unexpected in any beer. Sold in bottles of different vintages, each batch is beautiful—though variations among the years encourage further exploration. If you’re open to sampling something non-traditional, this beer will satisfy your curiosity.”
The Restort Rager
“The murky orange color of this beer is somehow still spectacular, like neon lights on a crowded dance floor. Beautifully carbonated, subtle notes of cracker up front, light hop bitterness, and a clove aroma and flavor highlight this beer’s taste profile. Best of all, the unfiltered wheat packs anti-oxidants and b-vitamins, the perfect team for fighting hangovers.”
