Lagunitas Nightime

Lagunitas Nightime Fear the Dark Ale...$3.59 / 22oz

8.5% ABV
There are two kinds. There is the DayTime kind, which is bright and welcoming and then there is the NightTime kind, which should never be confused with the DayTime. NightTime is dark and deep and may take you to unexpected places, places that the DayTime cannot. But then, the NightTime is not suited for ordinary life and ordinary tasks. In fact, NightTime may be the answer for that sort of thing, meaning that those sorts of things may never get done. Things take time in the NightTime, things slow down and you can puase (you have to, actually) and investigate carefully to find that level of objective detachment that is only possible under the spell of the NightTime. Seek the Day, but fear not the Night.

Stone Lukcy Bastard Ale...$7.49 / 22oz
Lukcy Basartd Ale was first released in November 2010 in celebration of the (lucky) 13th anniversary of Arrogant Bastard Ale. This powerfully complex beer is an amalgamation of three Bastards—Arrogant Bastard Ale, Double Bastard Ale and OAKED Arrogant Bastard Ale — unceremoniously thrown together and then dry-hopped to excess, providing a fittingly immoderate blast of malty, hoppy flavor. Those Worthy souls who possess the nerve to try it will be rewarded with a delicious assault on their taste buds.

Boulevard new Radler Cranberry Orange plus more...

Boulevard Cranberry Orange Radler...$7.99 / 6 pack Cans
Style: Radler
The Boulevard Radler series is a zesty, refreshing take on the tradition of mixing beer with soda or lemonade to create a flavorful, thirst-quenching beverage. Radler was tailor-made for those with an active lifestyle, but you can enjoy our version even when doing nothing more strenuous that lifting it to your lips.


Boulevard Snow & Tell – Oak-Aged Scotch Ale...$7.99 / 6pk
Snow & Tell, our newest winter seasonal beer, is being released to coincide with the change in the weather that occurs in the Midwest as we transition from crisp fall days into cooler, brisk nights. A malt blanket of sorts, Snow & Tell is our interpretation of a Scotch Ale or Wee Heavy. Ranging in alcohol from 6% up to 10% in more extreme examples of the style, Scotch Ales typically feature rich, caramel malt sweetness punctuated by spicy/herbal hops.

At 6.3 ABV, Snow & Tell is composed of our base pale malt, crystal/caramel malt, amber malt and just a touch of Beechwood smoked malt from Germany. At just under 1% of the total malt bill, the smoked malt lends subtle complexity without overpowering the layers of caramel and toffee flavors contributed by the crystal malt. Hopped with Magnum, Chinook and Styrian Goldings, Snow & Tell sees brief aging on medium toasted oak chips at the end of fermentation.

Opening with aromas of fig, raisins and caramel/toffee Snow & Tell stretches out, enveloping the palate with a lingering malt sweetness that transitions into spicy/herbal hop flavors coupled with a drying, oaky character. The hops are fairly minimal at 25 IBUs, but serve to keep Snow & Tell from becoming cloying. A great sipper on a cool night, we suggest pairing Snow & Tell with heavy meat dishes, strong aged cheeses, chocolate and shortbread.

Boulevard Nutcracker Ale...$7.99 / 6pk
Style: Winter Specialty Beer
Nutcracker Ale is Boulevard’s holiday gift for real beer lovers. This hearty, warming brew is a classic winter ale, deep amber in color, with hints of molasses balanced by the “spiciness” of Chinook hops.

Iron Maiden Trooper Red "N' Black Porter.

Iron Maiden and Robinsons Brewery have announced ‘TROOPER Red ‘N’ Black – a new limited edition beer from their award-winning TROOPER* range ...

Iron Maiden Trooper Red "N' Black Porter..$5.49 / pint
TROOPER Red ‘N’ Black porter is the third beer in the TROOPER range following on from the stunning success of TROOPER and last year’s limited edition TROOPER 666.

The beer, designed once again by IRON MAIDEN vocalist and ale aficionado Bruce Dickinson along with Robinsons’ Head Brewer Martyn Weeks, takes its inspiration from a very early Robinsons recipe which was first brewed in the 1850’s; a time when porter style beer was becoming increasingly popular in Britain.

Bruce Dickinson explains: “I like tasting outside the box. Stouts and porters were virgin territory for me so I just went by feel. Martyn and I hope we have created a new take on a classic beer and one which I hope will tickle the taste buds of ale fans in a pleasantly unexpected way.”

At 6.8% in bottle, TROOPER Red ‘N’ Black is the strongest beer in the range to date.

Taking its name from both the colour of the beer, which glows red when held up to light, and the song ‘The Red and the Black’ from Iron Maiden’s critically acclaimed 2015 album The Book of Souls, TROOPER Red ‘N’ Black uses a blend of chocolate and crystal malts which help give the beer a roasted malt and caramel backbone. Robinsons yeast, the same strain which has been used in the Stockport brewer’s beers since 1942, provides hints of both liquorice and honey to create a delicious warming brew.

John Robinson, Brands Manager for Robinsons Brewery said: “With millions of pints sold in 55 countries worldwide it’s safe to say that TROOPER remains a phenomenal success. Last year, we released TROOPER 666 at the request of the fans and this year we are happy to be releasing another limited edition beer that broadens the TROOPER range in an ever evolving and vibrant beer market.”

Chalk Hill Chardonnay

2014 Chalk HIll Sonoma Coast Chardonnay...$12.98
We are tied for the lowest price in the country.
Next lowest price in Missouri on Wine-Seracher
is $16.99 at Total Wine and More
Our 2014 Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is a beautiful medium golden color. This wine displays expressive fruit aromas of yellow apple and lemon curd, along with classic oak expression notes of toasted hazelnut, vanilla custard and crème brulee. The flavor on the palate is more elegant and cool climate style, showing varietal intensity and minerality, but with extended notes of baked yellow apples and peach cobbler. The fruit shows a rich, textural body from barrel fermentation, but it reined in by good acidity and lemon zest.

Drunken Sailor

Drunken Sailor is a handcrafted recipe of blended and aged Caribbean rums made from local sugar cane and distilled from molasses. We then mix in our special brew of all natural ingredients like Tahitian Vanilla, cinnamon and secret spices. 92 proof.

Drunken Sailor takes its name from the ancient sea shanty that sailors, pirates and navy folks sang as they worked long days at sea. Spice rum played an important role throughout the world and U.S. history. Even George Washington insisted on a barrel to be present for his inauguration.

Drunken Sailor Irish Whiskey...$28.99
The Irish invented whiskey and on the backs of sailors, navy men and pirates of the British Isles. It spread it's sweet brown veins across the world. The iconic sea shanty, drunken Sailor was on most of these swashbuckler's lips and was the chorus of the seas as they worked in unison on the tall ships.

Usquaebach Blended Malt Scotch Whisky Cask Strength

Usquaebach Blended Malt Scotch Whisky Cask Strength...$174.99
Lowest price on Wine-Searcher is $194.99

"Usquaebach Scotch Whisky, (pronounced “oos-ke-bah”) an artisinally crafted, hand-blended Highlands Scotch imported by family-owned Cobalt Brands, announces the release of its first new blend in nearly 25 years, the Usquaebach An Ard Ri Cask Strength. Translated from Gaelic as “the high king,” the An Ard Ri is an ultra-premium, high-proof blend of more than 20 single malt casks, aged between 10 and 21 years.

Carefully crafted by longstanding Usquaebach blenders, Hunter Laing and Co., the An Ard Ri is made with casks from Master Blender Stewart H. Laing’s personal collection. Mr. Laing selected from a range of Highlands whiskies, including Inchgower, Benrinnes, Craigellachie, Glengoyne, Dailuaine, Blair Athol, and Auchroisk. At 57.1% ABV, the finished product is a powerfully complex and structured, yet harmoniously smooth cask strength blend that faithfully maintains Usquaebach’s position as “King of the Blended Whiskies.” On the nose, the An Ard Ri exhibits marzipan, brioche, and burnt orange peel, followed by notes of honey, leather, dried fruits, and brown sugar on the palate.

The 2,000 bottle limited release is packaged in a striking gold and blue variation of Usquaebach’s signature flagon bottle, keeping with the product’s theme of bringing ancient tradition to a modern audience" -- PRWeb

New Exclusive Malts

The Exclusive Malts Blended Scotch Whisky 1980...$165.99

35 Year Old Scotch
Distilled in 1980 Aged for a minimum of 35 years in oak casks.
A blend of the finest Speyside and Highland Single malts and single grain whiskies all distilled in 1980 and matured in the finest ex-sherry casks. Non-chill filtered and no coloring added

The Exclusive Malts 1997 Linkwood 18 Year Single Malt Scotch...$129.99

ABV: 46.3%
Linkwood Distillery, based in the town of Elgin in the North East of Scotland, is quite a hard whisky to find. Nearly all of its output is destined for the big blending houses. Whilst this is understandable, as Linkwood Distillery makes a great spirit, it is a shame that more of its aged malt does not find its way into a bottle on its own. This cask demonstrates how great this whisky can be.
Cask type: First Fill Ex-Sherry Hogshead

The Exclusive Malts 1991 Port Dundas 25 Year Old Single Malt...$143.99
ABV: 53.6%
Based just North of the City of Glasgow, Port Dundas Distillery had a long and chequered history (it burned down twice and was bombed once). At its prime the distillery was capable of making 39 million litres of spirit a year but was closed in 2009 due to a surplus in production of grain whisky. The whisky is now highly sought after as when aged properly is quite delicious.
Cask type: Refill Hogshead

The Exclusive Malts 2006 Croftengea 10 Year Old Single Malt...$85.99
Distilled at Loch Lomond
ABV: 55.5% 
The whisky is made at the Loch Lomond distillery situated in Alexandria, adjacent to Loch Lomond.
Called Croftengea after one of the islands on Loch Lomond and to remove association of whisky of the same name, this whisky is distilled using heavily peated barley imparting an earthy, smoky style to the spirit.
Cask type: Refill Hogshead

Stone Coffee Milk Stout is back!

Stone Coffee Milk Stout...$9.99 / 6pk
There’s no shortage of talented people at Stone, and each makes their presence known in their own unique way. Brian Gallagher, a brewer who learned the art of fermentation in the UK, used the beer you now hold, a take on a traditional English milk stout, as his vehicle for personal expression. Originally brewed as a limited edition offering at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station, this coffee-laced milk stout quickly became a favorite among Gallagher’s peers. Made bittersweet and creamy while remaining smooth and easy-drinking thanks to the addition of milk sugar, it’s clear in one sip why this is a brew we needed to share with fans everywhere.

Great Divide 22nd Anniversary Dark Sour

Great Divide 22nd Anniversary Dark Sour...$18.99 / 750ml
An expert blend of bold character, this Dark American Sour is a perfect culmination of 22 years of craft and ingenuity. Aged in red wine barrels, this robust offering is as sophisticated as it is sour. Notes of black cherry jam and tobacco are countered by a welcome tartness and tannic oak finish that lasts long after each sip, making 22nd Anniversary a beer you won’t soon forget.

  • Stone 20th Anniversary Citracado IPA

Stone 5th Anniversary IPA (99/100 RateBeer)
Originally released September 2001. Brewed to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Stone Brewing Co. An "amped up" version of Stone IPA with many times the hops and cranked up malt profile.

Stone 10th Anniversary IPA (99/100 RateBeer)
Stone 10th Anniversary IPA harkens back to our earlier Anniversary Ales, with abundant hopping at many stages of the brewing process. Appropriately, the aroma is over-the-top, with pronounced piney and resiny hop flavors combined with tropical fruit esters and more subtle notes of toasted malts and alcohol. Our Stone 10th Anniversary Ale weighs in at 10% alcohol by volume (perfect for a 10th anniversary beer), and has a little more color and malt character than our other IPAs. In addition to using the new Summit hop variety in the brewhouse to provide the powerful bitterness, we went back through our records and found some of our favorite hops over the years, and used them to flavor this brew, including Chinook, Crystal, and large doses of Simcoe in the dry-hop to provide a huge, complex, piney, fruity and floral hop character. This is a colossal beer, big in every sense: hoppy, malty, rich, and strong! Right up our alley.

Stone 15th Anniversary Black IPA (99/100 RateBeer)
In the 15 years since we entered the craft brewing world, change has come not in a straight line, but as an exponential curve. The craft brewing movement has long been called a "revolution." But today the air is so thick with revolution, it’s palpable. No longer is it only an awareness among the faithful; the unconverted are beginning to feel it as well. Denial and ignorance are disappearing in favor of opened eyes, curiosity and the sense that there’s something larger out there. For far too long we have been lied to. For far too long we have been oppressed by the notion that dumbed-down-lowest-common-denominator-mediocrity was all that we could, and should, expect. You might think we’re talking only about the world of brewing, but we’re not. There is a myriad of products out there masquerading as cheeses, coffee, chocolates, breads...hell, there is stuff pretending to be ’food’ that our great grandmothers would not recognize as such. Yet the craft brewing movement, together with the artisanal food movement, is making much progress. Where the industrial companies can’t dismiss or bury us, they are attempting to copy us with cheap facsimiles. Yes, chances are if you are holding this bottle, you understand these things to be true about the world of brewing. You also likely understand the importance of our fight at Stone against accepted ’norms’ over the last 15 years. We believed that America was ready to embrace things made with artistry and passion. You have spoken. Your response has been clear. We are not merely consumers to be spoon-fed whatever commodities need to be unloaded for a profit. We have only just begun to move the needle of this revolution, & mediocrity still reigns. Consider that when you reject dumbed down, industrialized food and drink, you also support craft brewing. The line is nearly seamless; we are fighting the same battle. We will not win in our lifetime, as the powers are too entrenched, and the masses too…fooled. And shackled. However, this is a revolution of ideas and of taste, and we will win. How do you want to be viewed by your children, and your children’s children? As a hero, or as the oppressed? (Those that don’t think they have been oppressed are already lost.) Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide. We hope you’ll stand with us. Strong and unyielding. You are needed. This bottle and its glorious contents are a celebration of you, brothers and sisters, and your importance in this fight. Cheers to all we’ve accomplished together in the past fifteen years, and cheers to the adventure ahead!

Stone 20th Anniversary Citracado IPA

For 20 years our passion for brewing and our obsession with hops have challenged traditional styles and expectations for beer. So it’s only fitting we commemorate this momentous occasion by crafting a liquid ode to bold brewing that satisfies your hop thirst and pays homage to our flagship San Diego brewery, located on Citracado Parkway (which itself pays homage to the citrus and avocado agricultural history of the region).

“Citracado” also teases the two key ingredients of this beer. “Citra” refers both to the juicy gem of a hop and its citrusy (and tropical) aromas and flavors. “Cado” inspired us to utilize wonderful, native avocado flower honey. Combine the two and the result pours like silk and abounds with enough hops to match our excitement for reaching this 20-year milestone. We thank you sincerely for the years of support and pledge that we will, as always, strive to live up to the reasons for your loyalty!

New Plum Sour from Destihl

If you came to our Beer Fest earlier in the year, you got a chance to taste this beer...finally arrived!

Destihl Plum Sour Stout...$8.99 / 6pk
WiLD SOUR Series
Plum Sour Stout rebels against style boundaries as it opens with a bold fusion of fruitiness and chocolatey roast. Dark fruit flavors then take hold, evoking memories of plum jam and chocolate-covered cherries to bring everything into balance. The result is a light-bodied and refreshingly tart stout that's just plum sour!!
