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!
Timmermans Lambicus Oude Kriek...$16.99 The flavour of Timmermans Oude Kriek, refermented in the bottle, is without comparison. The cherries from which it derives its taste and colour it features traditionally come from Schaerbeek. Slightly acidic and with a wonderful bouquet, this natural and hence unpredictable brew requires careful handling throughout its long maturation period. Created from a blend of old and young lambic, Timmermans Oude Kriek keeps for 12 years. Like Timmermans Oude Gueuze, this is a precious drink, available in a limited edition only !
The marriage of genuine lambic, to the cherry - originally the Schaerbeek cherry - always has surprising results, particularly as a spontaneously fermented young lambic is added to the old lambic in the proportion of one to three. This union, in which natural bitterness dominates, will delight genuine connoisseurs of spontaneous fermentation and will surprise newcomers to fruit beers in their most prestigious and noble form.
To celebrate the 106th birthday of the “Little Brewery” in Shiner, we crafted this special limited-edition brew that’s a sweet treat for all. Brewed with chocolate malt and real cocoa, this year’s Shiner Birthday Beer is a delicious out with a soft creamy head, chocolate aroma and taste and a slightly sweet finish. Drink this beer that’s as rich as Shiner’s heritage while it lasts- once it’s gone, you’ll have to wait until next year for another birthday surprise.
Sierra Nevada Nooner Pilsner...$7.99 / 6pk A crisp, hoppy take on the original session beer.
Gather your friends, pack the gear, and head out to wherever the day may take you. A midday go-to, Nooner is our take on the classic German-style pilsner—one of the original session beers. Nooner is easy drinking yet packed with the big flavor of spicy and floral whole-cone hops. Its brilliant golden color begs you to take a sip and sink your taste buds into an extremely welcoming beer, full of flavor and balanced by a crisp, dry finish.
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. Unlike other Beluga varieties, in this series our trademark blend of artesian water and malt spirits passes through not three but five rounds of filtering. Each bottle comes with its own serial number and a cork stopped with sealing wax. To clean out the sealing wax, each bottle of Beluga Gold line comes with an elegant hammer and brush, emphasizing 100% authenticity and individuality of this limited series vodka an imposing attitude.
Evil Twin Molotov Lite...$8.49 / 4pk pint Cans Back in the days, only uncomplicated and tasteless beers excited and people started feeling bored before happy hour was up. Molotov Lite is a understated tour de force in rebellious hoppiness, it’s a subtle spark for action and yet by far one of the most anti-authoritative beers ever made by Evil Twin Brewing.
2nd Shift LSD with Blueprint Coffee...$14.99 / 750ml
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.
60.39% ABV !! Caol Ila 15 Year Old Unpeated Limited Release...$109.99
This unpeated limited edition natural cask strength Caol Ila has been aged in first fill bourbon casks to bring out its sweet spiciness. As clean and fresh as the pale sky that follows the clearing rain, its intense flavours dance boldly across the tongue like flecks of foma over wind-lashed waves." - bottles

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.
North Coast Puck The Beer Petite Saison...$7.99 / 4pk First brewed to celebrate our 25th anniversary, the beer now known as PUCK, a petite saison of just over 4% ABV, won a place in our hearts and in our year-round portfolio of beers. Brewed with premium Pils and wheat malts and fermented with the same yeast strain used to make our renowned Saison, Le Merle, Puck is sharp and spritzy with a delicious flowery, spicy dry-hop aroma—the perfect accompaniment to any celebration, big or small.
Style: Petite Saison Color: Pale Gold Bitterness: 27 IBUs ABV: 4.0%
4 Hands Brewing Chocolate Milk Stout...$6.99 / 22oz "Our Chocolate milk stout pours black as the night sky with aromas of dark chocolate, chocolate malt, and more chocolate. With a frothy tan head and a rich velvety mouthfeel our Chocolate milk stout is a perfect addition to the change of seasons. Brewed with over 3 pounds of cocoa nibs per barrel this beer is a chocolate lovers dream!" -- label
Talisker Distillers Edition 2014 Single Malt Scotch....$69.99
Double Matured in Amoroso Cask Wood
Distillers Edition The Distillers Edition is unique: after its usual aging process in American oak casks, the whisky undergoes a second maturation in casks previously holding sherry. The result is older, sweeter and richer than the regular bottlings.
Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine.
The founders of Oban distillery were entrepreneurs who imported and exported goods for which they could sense a demand. They would have approved of the Spanish influence brought to bear in this Montilla Fino cask wood finish.
A seriously complex whisky of the highest order – a glorious zesty nose and plenty of sweet fruit complemented by salt and chewy, roasty caramel malt.
Oban 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch...$81.99 This rare, bottling was selected to mature four years longer than Oban 14-Year-Old. Those extra four years give Oban 18-Year-Old a rounder, more developed flavour. The sweeter notes such as banana and toasted teacake, found subtly in Oban 14-Year-Old are amplified. The rich sweetness of Oban 18-Year-Old is perfectly balanced with the most mysterious of flavours: a dry hint of Sea Salt. STRENGTH 43% ABV APPEARANCE Pale, green-gold. NOSE Sweet with white banana notes at firstfollowed by toasted muffins and a trace of toasted tea-cake before the familiarOban key note of sweet smokiness and salt appears. BODY Medium. PALATE Fruity like rhubarb compote. Smooth texturedand easy to drink. FINISH Long with late smoke, cocoa and aniseed. Oilyand rich with long tannins.
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.
Very limited cult California Cabernet Sauvignon from the master of cult wine - Andy Erickson!
2011 Dalla Valle Maya...$369.99 The Dalla Valle vineyard proved its worth in the 2011 vintage, which was quite challenging in many parts of California. At several hundred feet above the valley floor, with a strict western exposure and very rocky soils, the vineyard literally stayed above the fray. The Maya blocks performed particularly well, delivering fruit with ripe tannins, aromatic intensity, and plenty of well-defined muscle. The final blend is 73% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Cabernet Franc. Aromas and flavors of candied cherries, currant, black tea and cardamom come to the surface of this youthful wine. The mid-palate impression is generous, structured, and round, with bright red fruit and Asian spice flavors lingering on a very long finish. This is a wine that, while accessible now, will absolutely age well. -- The Winery
Andy Erickson, Winemaker Andy has been instrumental in crafting some of Napa Valley’s very finest wines. As a fervent believer in terroir, his chief concern at Dalla Valle is to understand and maximize the unique qualities that allow this vineyard to produce truly special and authentic wines. He engages in every aspect of the process, from grape growing to bottling, working in tandem with Naoko and her team to maintain focus and strive for the pinnacle of quality.
"Andy Erickson, 40, was hired as winemaker at Napa Valley's Screaming Eagle in 2006...Erickson started his winemaking career at Harlan Estate and was then named winemaker at Staglin in 2001 before founding his own winery, Favia, in 2003 with his viticulturist wife, Annie Favia; in addition to his duties at Screaming Eagle and Favia, he is consulting winemaker for Hartwell, Ovid, Dancing Hares, Dalla Valle and Arietta in Napa and Jonata in the Santa Ynez Valley." -- Wine Spectator
6 bottles in stock in OWC 2011 Comte de Vogue Musigny V.V. Grand Cru....$515 / net per bottle The 2011 Musigny Vieilles Vignes shows wonderful energy in its expressive floral notes. Sweet red-hued fruit turns darker in the glass, but it is really the wine's energy that stands out most. Overall, this is a fairly mid-weight vintage for the Musigny deeply marked by its resonance and balance. The 2011 is perhaps a bit less epic than some recent versions, but it certainly delivers considerable pleasure. -- Antonio Galloni Rated 95/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
Tasting note: A remarkably attractively cool and restrained nose of various red berries, spice and a beautiful array of floral elements complements well the rich and equally cool mineral-tinged big-bodied and overtly muscular flavors. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension on the clean and pure finish that delivers strikingly good length. This intensely mineral-driven effort is also clean and firm but with slightly better phenolic maturity to the supporting structural elements which should allow this beauty to age successfully for many years to come. Rated 94/100 Allen Meadows, Burghound
2011 Comte de Vogue Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru...$299.99 A big step up from the villages, the 2011 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru bursts from the glass with an exotic melange of dark red/blackish fruits. Graphite, rose petal, cinnamon and raspberry candy follow, adding notable dimension, complexity and nuance. I very much like the sense of energy and tension here. This is a terrific showing from de Vogüé. -Rated Rated 93/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

2010 Bond Pluribus...$391.99 Only 1 bottle available The 2010 Pluribus reveals classic notes of blueberry and mulberry fruit intermixed with hints of violets, incense and licorice. The striking aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, dense, supple-textured, multidimensional wine that should drink well for 25-30 years. Rated 97/100 The Wine Advocate
2010 Bond Vecina...$391.99
Only 1 bottle Another wine flirting with perfection is the 2010 Vecina, the nearby neighbor of Harlan Estate on the western hills overlooking the Oakville Corridor, and further south, Yountville. A Graves-like effort, it displays notes of burning embers, scorched earth, creme de cassis, and charcoal. Primordial, dense, rich, full-bodied, masculine and backward, this is another example of a wine built for half a century of cellaring. Forget it for 7-10 years and watch the pleasure unfold thereafter. Rated 99/100 The Wine Advocate 2010 Bond Quella....SOLD OUT The 2010 Quella is a candidate for perfection. From the lower foothills of Pritchard Hill, it offers up notes of charcoal, graphite, espresso and copious quantities of blueberry and black raspberry liqueur, along with distinctive minerality, a full-bodied mouthfeel, moderately high tannins, gorgeous richness and a long, moderately tannic finish. Forget it for five years and drink it over the following three decades. Rated 98/100 The Wine Advocate Rated 97/100 James Suckling
2010 Bond St. Eden...SOLD OUT
From the valley floor, the 2010 St. Eden exhibits copious notes of creme de cassis, loamy, dusty soil undertones, forest floor, toasty oak and plenty of sweet tannin in its full-bodied, massive personality. Again, these wines are not meant for near-term gratification, so 5-6 years of cellaring is warranted. This is another 30-year wine from Bond. Rated 95/100 The Wine Advocate
