Limited Beer and Whiskey "Pop Up"

Beer Pop-Up
-- Another 20 new people have been randomly selected from the top 500 in the BRC.  Again, this is a way to reward people that frequent the store.   (out of the last 20, 16 claimed their bottle, 4 missed out)

We are doing it a little different now.  Instead of having a specific beer picked for you, you will be able to pick a bottle from a list of 5-6 very limited beers.   Beers you want :)

Whiskey Pop Up
We are starting a whiskey pop up now also.  We have randomly selected 20 people from the top 400 in the WRC.
When you check out at the register, a notice will pop up saying you can purchase a bottle of limited whiskey.   If you are one of the lucky random people, you will be able to choose a bottle from a list of very sought after bourbons/whiskeys to purchase.  The Bourbons will be very limited bourbons that we saved a bottle of or somebody did not pick up their allocation. There will be some exciting whiskeys available.

Thanks very much as we continue to try to improve the release of these limited items and give people more chances.  

It does not matter which store you shop, or if you shop online, it is all the same system.  The limited items are located at Forsyth though,  so if you shop at one of our other stores, we will get you a list of what is available for you to choose from and have it transferred as soon as possible for you to pick up at your next convenience.

WhistlePig NEW --- 12 Year Old Rye

Very limited
WhistlePig 12 Year Old Rye...$109.99
We at WhistlePig believe that progress is not achieved by the complacent, it is won by the bold and tenacious. With these tenets in mind, we proudly submit the fruit of our progressive endeavors, the 12 Year Old World Marriage.

In the spring of 2014, Master Distiller Dave Pickerell began a unique experiment on the WhistlePig Farm. After studying the best techniques of the Old World – particularly Scotch whiskies – Dave and the WhistlePig team paired bonds of 12-year-old rye with premium European oak casks – Madeira, Sauternes, Port, Cognac, and Sherry. After a series of single finish releases and extensive industry feedback, the 12 Year Old World is the product of a carefully selected marriage of three finishes that highlights their distinctive flavors to create an exceptionally balanced spirit. The 2015 San Francisco Spirits Competition Double Gold award winning Old World Series unites the bold attributes of rye whiskey with the grace and elegance of the finest European casks, yielding an ultra-premium straight rye, distinctly American, but hearkening to its stately Old World roots.

New Lagunitas

Lagunitas 12th of Never Ale....$16.99 / 12 pack CANS
Tropically Hoppy. Light, yet Full-Bodied. Bright and Citrusy. Word.
The magical, mystical 12th of Never is a blend of Old and New School hops that play bright citrus, rich coconut, and papaya-esque flavors, all on a solid stage of English puffed wheat. Tropically hoppy. Light, yet full-bodied. Bright and citrusy. The 12th of Never Ale is everything we’ve learned about making hop-forward beer expressed in a moderate voice. Pale, cold, slightly alcoholic and bitter. It’s all we know. These 12oz mini-kegs (AKA cans) are an exciting new option for us, and we are stoopid stoked at the opportunity for y'all to take us to all those new, nelophobic locations…

Lagunitas Stoopid Wit....$9.99 / 6 pack
An Un-Freakin'-Filtered Hoppy Belgian-ish Wit
This UNFILTERED Belgian-ish Wit-ly-esque-ish-ness brew features a dry twang of hoppy bitterness and is perfect for the summertime drinking! e Bard said that it's better to be a witty fool than a foolish wit. True dat. Wit dat in mind we take you now to the stoopid side of the classic wit on the wings of Yakima's finest. What's it got to do with beer? Give us a call. 707.769.4495. Cheers!

Lagunitas Wilco Tango Foxtrot "WTF"....$3.59 22 oz 
A big Ol' Imperial Brown Ale to help you with your slipperly slide on into springtime. Rich, smooth, dangerous & chocolatey.
"In the murky realm of things that make you go "Hmmm..." 2010 should rank way, way up there. From the curious per curiam decision of 531 U.S. 98 in 2000, to WTC7, to the House of Lehman, to the Nobel President's Afghan Expedition escalation, to the oxymoronic Jobless Recovery of 2010; we have been confused. So, we did the only thing we could, we made beer and lots of it. 5,643,420 cases of it to be exact. And as far as we know, you drank all of it. Thank you for that, because if you had not, we would have been looking for a bailout of our own, and we haven't heard about any breweries either needing or receiving any of those spicy Yuan TARP dollars....although we have rad that the Las Vegas adult video industry did. Nobdoy knows why. So, in a wolrd that is once again the proverbial "Ball of Confusion", craft beer alone seems to carry its own weight. It's nice to be on the winning team and thank you for your patronage and imbibiliciousness."

Boulevard Rye-on-Rye X – Sazerac

We have a decent amount, but still could go fast.

Boulevard Rye-on-Rye X – Sazerac...$11.99 / 750ml
Inspired by the success of our "X" series of special Imperial Stout releases, we've embarked on a journey to the outer reaches of our popular Rye-on-Rye. For the first Rye-on-Rye X release, Rye-on-Rye-on-Rye, we transferred our huge tawny rye ale from its first set of aging barrels into freshly emptied Templeton Rye barrels effectively creating a double barrel aged ale that showcased giant rye whiskey and barrel character. For the second Rye-on-Rye release, we drew inspiration from the famous New Orleans cocktail, the Sazerac. The official recipe is composed of rye whiskey, absinthe or Herbsaint, a sugar cube and bitters all garnished with a lemon peel. To translate this classic cocktail into a beer, we brewed batches of the base rye beer that received spice additions mimicking bitters as well as lemon peel during the boil. The resulting wort was fermented with our house Scottish ale yeast before being aged in freshly emptied Templeton Rye barrels.

Old Bardstown Bourbon


Old Bardstown Black Label 90...$17.99
90 proof
Believe it or not, this bourbon came close in taste, texture and smell to the more expensive, virtually impossible to find Pappy Van Winkle 20-Year Old Kentucky Bourbon. Wonderful rich, honeyed, caramel, toffee, maple syrup, wood spice, smoke and vanilla notes are found in this full-bodied, broad, rich, medium amber/tawny-colored bourbon. 94 points
Rated 94/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Old Bardstown Kentucky Straight Bourbon Estate Bottled....$25.99
Color: Auburn
Nose: Intensity – 2.5; Golden copal incense, eucalyptus, with added water this noses like a single malt that’s been finished in sherry casks

Le Merle Saison
Le Merle is a rustic ale, pale in color, inspired by the rich brewing traditions of the Flanders region. Abundant hops and a Belgian yeast strain contribute exotic aromas of tropical fruit.
Style: Saison


Belgian Ales represent the height of the brewers' art. Sophisticated brewing techniques, yeast blends and unique flavoring elements have elevated the beers of Belgium to the status enjoyed by wine in other countries.
PranQster follows in this tradition using a mixed culture of antique yeast strains that produce a floral nose, a full fruity flavor and a clean finish.

Brother Thelonious
North Coast Brewing Co. is proud to partner with the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz in support of Jazz education. The Brewery makes a donation to the Institute for every bottle of Brother Thelonious Belgian Style Abbey Ale sold.
Like a Belgian “Dark Strong Ale,” this beer is rich and robust with an ABV of 9.4%. The package features a label picturing the Jazz master himself, and comes in a 750 ml bottle

New Down and Dirty IPA

Deschutes Down and Dirty IPA....$3.99 / 22oz

Pinckney Bend Rye and Rested Whiskey - Limited release

Pinckney Bend Rye and Rested Whiskey...$49.99
3 Year Old Rye
100 proof
Rye History
In the late 1700s and early 1800s rye was the grain that most American whiskey was made from. As the country expanded westward, corn began to replace rye and by the end of Prohibition, rye had largely disappeared.

Flavor Profile
The spicy, sometimes described as ‘peppery’ notes of rye whiskey often show best when blended with the natural sweetness of whiskey made from corn. Distinctive vanillin and caramel notes add complexity and character. Rye & Rested Whiskey is a blend of 55% rye and 45% Pinckney Bend’s award winning Rested American Whiskey. The result is a unique flavor profile that accentuates the best aspects of each spirit.

The rye is aged in new, standard sized whiskey barrels, where the Rested is aged in new 15 gallon barrels. Here at the distillery, both whiskeys experience a seismic event every 40 minutes. It’s called the Missouri Pacific Railroad, and we are only 300 feet from the tracks.

New Belgium Heavy Melon

Yes, for a 12 pack (ignore the picture)- that breaks down to only $5.50 for 6 bottles.

New Belgium Heavy Melon...$10.99 / 12 pack bottles
Hot summer nights, jam out to the cooling waves of Heavy Melon Ale, our newest seasonal track. Brewed with juicy watermelon and zesty lime peel, this crushable ale rips with a blast of melon notes. Ripened fruit aromas of melon, papaya and citrus climax with an enticing aroma, and set up an invigorating wash of fruity sweetness, grassy bitterness and the slightest touch of tartness. Super crisp and refreshing from start to finish, Heavy Melon Ale shreds through the summer heat.

The lime peel is best added in the boil to extract all those essential oils. The watermelon is added in fermentation to capture the delicate fruit flavors, and to ferment all those sugars.
