Kona Longboard Lager 

Premium Lager · 4.6 ABV · Brewed by Kona Brewing Company

 

Longboard Island Lager is a smooth refreshing lager fermented and aged for weeks at cold temperatures to yield its exceptionally smooth flavor. A delicate, slightly spicy hop aroma complements the malty body of this beer.

Left Hand Stranger Pale Ale 

American Pale Ale · 5.0 ABV · Brewed by Left Hand Brewing

 

Initial impressions are not always reality, so you must delve deeper. Beyond the initial floral hop aromas, malt sweetness is revealed, yet with a spicy undertone that exposes a very rye sense of humor. Take your time to get to know the Stranger. It’s strangely satisfying.

O'Hara's Irish Pale Ale 

American Pale Ale · 5.2 ABV · Brewed by Carlow Brewing Company

 

This pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouth feel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from the late addition of cascade hops. The Citrus flavours give way at the end to the floral, spicy bitterness of Amarillo hops.

River Horse Oatmeal Milk Stout 

Sweet Stout · 6.7 ABV · Brewed by River Horse Brewing Company

 

A velvety smooth Stout brewed with oats and milk sugar that create a creamy finish over a dark malt base.

Sierra Nevada Estate Homegrown 2014 

India Pale Ale (IPA) · 6.7 ABV · Brewed by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company

 

It’s rich with the flavors of the valley—hops with earthy, grapefruit-like flavors and layered spicy aromas, and barley with mild sweetness and smooth, toasted flavors.

Speakeasy Prohibition Ale

Amber Ale / Red Ale · 6.1 ABV · Brewed by Speakeasy Ales & Lagers

 

Anything but traditional, Prohibition pours a deep reddish amber hue, with a fluffy tan head that leaves a beautiful lacing on the glass. A lush, complex aroma teases the senses with juicy grapefruit, citrus, pine, spice and candied caramel malts. Mouth-feel is creamy, with a silky, medium body and modest carbonation.
