North Coast Barrel Aged Rasputin XVII...$19.99 / 500ml Every year we age a special batch of our much-loved Russian Imperial Stout in Bourbon barrels. The depth, intensity, and complexity of the flavor profile of this special release, like its predecessors, make it a worthy tribute to Old Rasputin.
Prior to 2010, Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin was released in such limited quantities that it was available only at the North Coast Brewing retail shop in Fort Bragg, California. However, we received so many requests for this beer that we began producing enough Barrel-Aged Old Rasputin to put into broader, but still limited, distribution. VITAL STATISTICS

Santa Fe Brewing Aged Sour State Pen Porter...$12.99 / 22oz Two Year Barrel Aged Beer The Los Innovadores team has decided to take you back in time, H.G. Well’s style. We invite you to kick it ‘old school’ with a beer that’s style came right out of the 19th century. Prior to the industrial revolution this “Sour” or Brettanomyces fermented porter was a fairly common public house delicacy! In order to recognize this quirky beer style we must never forget ‘The Power of Darkness’ in our attempts to drink to ‘War and Peace’ with a truly pre-prohibition style ale. Zip up that bustle, telegraph the neighbor for a visit, be careful when you hop into your horse and buggies. It’s time to get out the Beethoven and share this beer over a rousing game of snakes and ladders!
Beluga Gold Line Vodka...$109.99 Beluga Gold Line is a limited edition product. Needless to say, it is dedicated to the true connoisseurs of strong spirits.

Son of a...Blueprint did it again with the coffee. So this time we used Karimikui which comes from the Chelekeletu Coffee Beans. We bottles 45 cases this go around, you lucky pig knuckle." - label
CHELELEKTU ("CHELE") Chelelektu is a town located in the Gedeo Zone of Yirgacheffe. We’re calling it “Chele” for short (rhymes with Shelly). A majority of coffee from Ethiopia is processed using the natural (or dry) method, however, Yirgacheffe is better known for its washed processing. Over the past five years, the demand for natural-processed coffees from Ethiopia has increased, leading many cooperatives and collection stations in Yirgacheffe to begin offering natural-processed coffees. This natural-processed selection is incredibly clean and offers some of the floral notes found in many washed coffees from Ethiopia while maintaining the syrupy and sweet profile of the natural process. If you were a fan of our Aramo offering last year, this should be a coffee you’ll love.

Firestone Walker Anniversary Ale XVIII...$20.99 / 22ozThe Vision Behind Our Barrel Aging and Blending Program Is Still the Same! The Goal: To create complexity centering on oak, in a multitude of forms, by brewing high gravity beers in complementary styles, aging them in different barrel formats and then blending them together to achieve harmonious new flavors.
The Puzzle: To blend these various components to create a synergistic whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. This is done with the help of a few of our neighboring Paso Robles winemakers who are practicing experts in the art of blending.
The Inspiration: Firestone Walker’s oak brewing tradition and our connection with winemaking. Of course until the advent of stainless steel, brewing was intimately linked to wood barrels and vessels. Brewing has a deeply rooted history in the alchemy of blending.
The Barrels The individual lots were aged in oak barrels, many of which were hand selected from premium Kentucky spirits producers by Tom Griffin, who is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about bourbon barrels and beer. Each barrel lends its own unique influence to the final blend.
The Aging Cellar – The Components We blended together 227 oak barrels containing 9 different beers creating something dark complex and 100% original.

A Note from Brewmaster Matt Brynildson Our 18th Year! As the 2014 brewing year got rolling, it became apparent that we were in for an exciting ride. What was once a brewery focused on brewing wood-fermented English ales and American dry hopped beer, evolved to also produce a hoppy Pilsner, a Belgian Saison, as well as a host of barrel aged wild ales! Yes, we added Opal to the lineup this year and with this beer came new Belgian yeast, which deserves equal attention and equal accommodations as our other yeasts. To make this happen and to juggle the four yeast strains we currently brew with (we still make Bavarian Hefeweizen for our Taprooms) we added a new Yeast Spa and Rejuvenation Center to the cellar. Our newly appointed yeast wrangler Sam Tierney has been put in charge of the lavish yeast resort. Each week he carefully propagates, harvests, chills, mixes, and pitches our fermenting friends, keeping them happy and refreshed – promoting the magic that only yeast can make. On the other side of the brewery we added a number of new fermenting and lagering vats, designed to be perfect for both dry hopping Union Jack as well as lagering Pivo to perfection. As this work was going on, we upgraded our keg-racking program, adding the highest quality and most thorough keg washer and gentle keg filling equipment available, housed in what we affectionately call the “Keg Shed.” As if this wasn’t enough for Will Crosby and the packaging crew to handle on the improvement front, we added a cannery to the brewery! We now offer our beers in bottles, kegs and cans. This will allow our fans to carry FW brews to the beach, on the trails, to the golf course or wherever a tasty brew is called for. A lot of thought and effort was taken to ensure that our new can line will perform as well as our faithful bottle line. Of course while this was all going on, the rest of the brew team was busy milling grains, lautering wort, cleaning tanks, propagating yeast, dry hopping fermenters, bottling, racking and shipping (not to mention constant maintenance, lab work and sensory analysis). Easy Jack, our new session IPA, was born with great success along with a host of new wild and sour beers created by our Barrelworks crew. It was truly an amazing year of brewing, improvement and creation!
The Winemakers and Friends On the beer you are about to enjoy; this project is all about creating flavors through blending and no one knows blending better than a winemaker. As brewers in this project, we create individual beers that we believe will lend something to the blend. We add a brew or two each year to see how the winemakers react, hoping to add another splash of flavor for the final blend. Some brews are added due to brewing collaborations that we engaged in, as in the case of Ol’ Leghorn, brewed with Three Floyds, and Hydra Cuveè brewed with Flying Dog. With all of this, our hardest work is done months before the final Anniversary beer is realized. In the end, we step aside and allow our brothers and sisters in fermentation science to take over and formulate the blend. It is an amazingly educational experience. I continue to learn so much from watching and listening to them in these blending sessions. Crush (the wine grape harvest) came early this year and we were honored that these busy enologists took time away from the harvest to join us in creating this beer. I can’t help but think that being in the middle of their most intense time of year only adds to these sessions with their heightened senses being in the creative zone in the midst of crush. Many of the folks who have helped us in the past returned to lend their well-tuned senses to this project. This year’s blenders included: Matt Trevisan – Linne Calodo, Steve Martell – Kaleidos, Eric Jensen – Booker, Justin Smith – Saxum, Brock Waterman – Brochelle, Kevin Sass and Molly Lonborg – Halter Ranch, Sherman Thacher – Thacher Winery,Russell From and Philip Muzzy – Herman Story, Mark Adams – Ledge and One Time Space Man, Terry Hoage – Hoage Cellars, Chelsea Franchi and Neil Collins from - Tablas Creek and Lone Madrone. If you are into artisanal barrel aged products, then you need to check out this amazing group’s work. Also joining us was Arie Litman and his amazing homemade bread and Bobby Fox of Western Square Industries. It was a great group who worked in teams to create a number of different potential blends. We then had the winemakers taste through them blindly and vote to select this year’s awesome blend. When the dust settled, it was the blend created by Russell and Philip of Herman Story that is in this bottle. A lot has happened since that first “10” blending session and each year the experience gets better.
The Finished Piece As a finished beer, XVIII is a dark and complex brew full of malt and barrel derived flavors, with Parabola leading the brew into the rich darkness. The beer is unfiltered and unfined, so there will be a small amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. XVIII is best enjoyed poured carefully into a half filled brandy snifter or wine glass. Allow it to warm to 55F to fully enjoy the pleasing and complex aromas. As the beer sits and breathes in the glass, rich dark chocolate, toasted oak and dark fruit character is revealed, so take your time. If you wait to open your bottle later, store it in a cool dark place. I suspect that this beer will age well and change favorably for years to come. It was an absolute pleasure in the making and I truly hope you enjoy our ninth oak-aged blend! The journey continues and it’s just as fun and exciting now as it was back in 1996.
This beer is dedicated to Jake and the rest of the amazing Wolfe family who have supported this community, our brewery and me personally since the beginning. We love you dearly.
30 years ago, our master distiller decided to lay down the casks that would go on to become the heart of this exceptional whisky and over these three decades, the whisky maturing inside them has developed an outstanding balance, with a seductive sweetness and extremely delicate smoke. Treating this whisky with respect will reward you with breath taking results: characteristic fudge sweetness comes together with complex aromatic spices and dark chocolate orange. It has a drying finish, leaving a gentle smoky flavour and an incredibly lengthy finish.
(85% tempranillo and 15% graciano; aged for a year in a combination of French and American oak): Bright violet color. Highly aromatic scents of black and blue fruits, Indian spices and fresh flowers are complemented by a deeper note of candied licorice. Juicy and broad on the palate, with intense dark berry and floral pastille flavors that become spicier with aeration. Dusty tannins give shape to the clinging finish.90 points

Founders Black Rye...$9.99 / 4pk We’ve reached into the vault and pulled out a cult classic from years ago. Before Black IPAs were all the rage, we made a dry-hopped dark ale with copious amounts of rye malt. Black Rye is a perfectly balanced blend of German- and American-grown hops, premium 2-row barley and heavily kilned rye and wheat malts. As with many of our offerings, there’s no style category that can contain this beer. It’s an original. ABV: 7.5% IBUs: 78
Founders Imperial Stout...$10.99 / 4pk Brewed with ten varieties of malted barley, this stout is smooth as silk, yet complex and rich in body. Serve this guy at cellar temperature. Put another log on the fire, sit back, and enjoy the friendship of this ultimate winter warmer. ABV: 10.5% IBUs: 90
2010 Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Inspiration....$1,799.99 / MAGNUM
Still not in bottle, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Inspiration is more sexy and perfumed than the Cuvee da Capo, with incredible notions of roasted meats, saddle leather, sweet currants and Provencal herbs all emerging from the glass. There’s a single barrel of this full-bodied, deeply concentrated elixir and I’ve no doubt it will be very hard to come by. In addition, this cuvee is only bottled in magnum. Nevertheless, it is spectacular, and I suspect will also have close to three decades of longevity.

2012 Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reserve....$189.99 / Magnum
As to the 2012s, while there will be no Cuvee da Capo in the vintage, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape is a beauty. Tasted out of multiple barrels (all of which rated between 94 and 97), it should be a classic Pegau with aromatics similar to the 2010, yet not quite as much depth or richness. Full-bodied and nicely concentrated, all of the samples showed the freshness of the vintage, with ample mid-palate depth, high quality tannin and loads of character. It should benefit from short-term cellaring and have 15-20 years of longevity. Drink 2016-2032.

2009 Pegau Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence...$599.99 / 3 liter Starting off the reds and easily the best example of this cuvee since the 2001, the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Laurence is incredible stuff. Deep, rich and layered, with copious notions of smoked meats, licorice, ground pepper, spice and saddle leather, it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, terrific fruit intensity and a rich, mouth-coating texture. Hard to resist now, it should nevertheless have two decades of longevity. Drink now-2029.
The story is compelling. In 1972, a batch of more than seventy malts and twelve grain whiskies were blended together and left to marry in sherry oak casks. Their intended destiny was to become an agreeable 12 year old blended Scotch whisky. Each of the constituent mature whiskies had been distilled between the 1940s and 1960. These days, we lament the loss of many of the distilleries where those historical liquids originated.
The sherry casks were disgorged for bottling and the contents consumed through the 1970s, around the dance floors of noisy clubs and across smoky public bars in provincial hotels. However, in the darkness of a warehouse at Auchentoshan distillery, three casks were overlooked, forgotten about for nearly four decades. By good fortune, they were uncovered by the gentlemen of The Last Drop Distillers Limited. They were astounded by the flavors and smoothness produced after this lengthy, inadvertent sherry maturation. Naturally, they set about acquiring the casks, subsequently releasing just 1,347 bottles. Back in 2008, The Last Drop 1960 was one of this magazine’s top ten whiskies of the year.
Guilefully (cognizant of the company name), they tactically reserved a quarter of the volume and risked re-casking it for further maturation in small, fresh sherry casks. After four years of careful observation, the youngest liquid in the blend had comfortably surpassed 50 years old. It was time to taste the results.
When I wrote my original review, I found a nose of maple syrup, roasted spices, pomegranate, cilantro, and mushrooms soaked with beefsteak juices. The luxurious mouthfeel oozed with malt, molasses, and sherry concluding with a dry, resinous finish. The amazement experienced in the texture and mouthfeel by those discerning drinkers who have developed their palates is something to behold. Be under no illusion: this is epic whisky.
While this blend was carefully selected for this award purely for its outstanding experiential qualities, there are only 388 bottles and the price tag cannot be ignored. Sure, it costs twice as much as The Last Drop 1960, but it is much scarcer: for every two bottles of 50 year old, there were seven bottles of 1960 released. Put it in context with the prices charged for some 50 year old single malt whiskies released in 2014, and this 50 year old blend of malts comes in at under one sixth of the price or less. Trust me, within the oeuvre of blended Scotch whisky, The Last Drop 50 year old is truly one of the greats. —Jonny McCormick

This is a blend. Not just any blend. More than 82 whiskies went into the original marrying vat, 50 years ago, many from distilleries long ago closed and forgotten. For 12 years the blend matured, and then most was bottled and sold as a fine 12-year old whisky. However, the company forgot just three casks; they lay at the back of the warehouse, unnoticed, evaporating (the “angels’ share”), and developing an unequalled richness of nose and taste. It is from the very last of these barrels that The Last Drop 50 year old comes.
Bottled by hand and sealed with wax, your bottle of The Last Drop nestles in a luxurious red leather case, along with a 50 ml miniature, so that you can taste this magnificent liquid before you decide to open the bottle. You will also find within the box, a ‘secret drawer’ containing a signed and numbered, leather-bound book, certifying your bottle of The Last Drop 1950, and with room for you to write your own tasting notes as you explore this extraordinary blend.
Left unopened, your bottle of The Last Drop 50 year old can be kept for many lifetimes if you wish – it will not change. If you decide to open it, please enjoy it… until the very last drop! There will be no more.

2014 HOLIDAY SELECT Jack Daniels Holiday Select 2014....$52.99 2014 marks the first time our Master Distiller, Jeff Arnett chose Holiday Select barrels to be bottled individually. This year, he wanted to showcase the depth and richness that a single barrel can offer and selected the most robust and complex whiskey he sampled. Each barrel is truly unique and we hope the bottle you’ve selected helps make your holidays special.
Very collectible bottle....
Jack Daniels Holiday Select Jack Daniel's Holiday Select is the whiskey that was specifically selected and drawn from the barrels used to craft our 2012 Barrel Tree in Lynchburg. On December 1st, the Jack Daniel Distillery officially released the Holiday Select bottle for 2012. This tradition was started last year so the 2012 bottle marks the 2nd in the Holiday Select Series with every bottle once again being filled from the barrels used to make the Christmas Barrel Tree. The 2012 Holiday Select bottle comes with 90.4 proof whiskey, a numbered hang tag, and is packaged in a very beautiful display box. In addition to being sold at the Distillery, certain states around the country are lucky enough to have this bottle available in select liquor stores. These bottles are very limited in quantity and will not be available for long.
