Saturday Beer Tasting in the Shop, 4PM-7PM

flower-childwbb logo 4_1After a year or so of being MIA, White Birch Brewing from Hooksett NH is back in Rhode Island, this time in six-pack cans. We’ll taste their Hop Session and Berliner Weisse as well as Flower Child IPA from Cambridge Brewing.

Cheers!

Saturday Beer Tasting in the Shop, 4-7PM

This Saturday we’re tasting the Route of all Evil, a black ale from Two Roads, Harpoon’s Winter Warmer, and 2x Presso, a double milk stout with coffee beans and lemon peel from Southern Tier. Ho ho ho!

New Arrivals: Beer!

This week we got the first and only American Trappist ale from theSpencer brewery in Spencer, MA. 
 
Double Trouble came in, too, from Founders. It’s their limited release Imperial IPA. 
 
Two new bombers from Stone came in this week as well. We have RuinTen IPA, their yearly release celebrating the 10th anniversary of the birth of their Ruination double IPA, and their latest Stochasticity project, Quadro Tritical, a quad brewed with triticale grain. 
 
Stone had a hand in Saison du Buff, too, a collaboration between Stone, Victory, and Dogfish Head, brewed with parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. (Should have called it Scarsborough Ale!). 
 
And last but not least, Rosabi is on our shelves, an imperial pale ale brewed with Wasabi from Dogfish Head, because why not?

 

New Beer!

beer c 10 13 We have lots of new beer this week…deep breath…

We got Stone’s collaboration with 10 Barrel and Blue jacket – the smoothly named Suede, an imperial porter brewed with calendula flowers, jasmine, and honey. Sierra’s wet hopped northern Hemisphere Harvest ale came in, as did Ommegang’s Scythe and Sickle harvest ale.

From the other side of the world we got Hanssens Oudbeitje lambic brewed with strawberries, and their Oude Gueuze. We’re big fans of Aecht Schlenkerla’s marzen rauchbier, and are happy to have their oak smoked doppelbock and their smoked weizen to keep it company on our shelves. Also from Germany we have Bayerischer Bahnhof’s refreshing and twangy Berliner weisse. Finally, although we’re probably forgetting something, we have two beers from Engelszell, the newest Trappist brewery and only the second outside of Belgium. We have their Gregorius and their Benno.
