2014 Snowden Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Vineyard

2014 Snowden Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Vineyard...$79.99
Snowden's Cabernet Sauvignon The Brothers has all the balance and harmony that defines the wines here in this vintage. Vivid, nuanced and deeply expressive, the 2014 presents a beguiling interplay of expressive aromatics and rich fruit, with beams of supporting tannin that shape the wine. Hints of tobacco and savory herbs add to the wine's considerable personality.
Rated 95/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Brothers Vineyard is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. This is a beauty and clearly the star of the red wine portfolio. Dense purple, with loads of cassis, blackberry, licorice and graphite, the wine hits the palate with considerable authority, impressive purity and only a hint of new oak (only 45% new barriques were utilized ). The finish was long, full-bodied and silky. This can be drunk now, or cellared for 20-25 years.
Rated 93/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Redemption Rye Pre-Prohibition Rye Revival

Redemption Rye Pre-Prohibition Rye Revival...$23.99
STYLE: Redemption Rye’s goal is to bring back the classic American Rye cocktail. While the Federal law states that a whiskey must be 51% rye grain to be classified as a rye we chose to push our grain content to 95%. This not only pushes the flavor forward, it also magnifies the unique profile of the rye grains. 
TASTE PROFILE: Beautiful flavored rye spice with light floral and citrus notes. Slight mint garnish makes this great for sipping or mixing in a classic cocktail. (Think Manhattan, Old Fashioned and Sazerac). True rye flavor. 
Mash bill: 95% rye, 5% barley malt 92 Proof Aged at least 2.5 Years in New Charred Oak barrels

Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon scores 92 points

2015 Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon...$9.99

Bower Hill Bourbons

Bower Hill Bourbon commemorates the "Battle of Bower Hill" which was the first bloodshed of the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794. The Mingo Creek militiamen numbering nearly six hundred surrounded federal tax inspector General Jon Neville's fortified home, Bower Hill. The battle took the lives of two rebel leaders, Oliver Miller and Major James McFarlane, a veteran of the Revolutionary war, as well as a few U.S. Solders defending the Bower Hill home. Upon completion of the two day batle, the home was razed by fire.

Lagunitas Born Again Yesterday

Lagunitas Born Again Yesterday...$17.99 / 12 pack bottles
An UnFiltered Born Again Pale Ale for all the wet hop lovers!
We’ve discovered that the Lagunitas brewers are part time alchemists... they’ve figured out how to keep wet hops wet all freakin’ year long! The next beer in our 2016 #OneHitter Series is this Born Again Yesterday Pale Ale, which features a delicious concoction of wet hops, reborn and unfiltered into our Born Yesterday Pale Ale. Congrats... It’s a beer again!

To figure out this brand new wet hop preservation process, we had to forget everything that we already knew about how hops are processed and preserved. We tried 5 or 6 different things to try and achieve this process (some of which failed miserably), then we discovered a relatively simple process that deliberately did all the things that the textbooks told us not to do.

This new proprietary process involves a lot of time and money, and even more thinking about hops and freshness in new ways. From all of this, we found a brand-spankin’-new way to preserve the hops, fresh from the Yakima Valley trellises, first born during harvest season into the Born Yesterday last fall, and reborn into this scary new next step, the Born Again Yesterday Pale Ale, six months later, to the beer in your hands today.

North Peak Hoppy Pale Ale

The Bruery new releases!

The Bruery Share this OC....$11.99 / 750ml
Share This: OC is a rich, imperial stout infused with orange-chocolate flavors. It’s a profile we’re quite fond of, given the abundance of orange trees in our own backyard. Food Forward takes it one step further – reaching over 100,000 people a month throughout eight counties in Southern California (including Orange County) with recovered fresh fruits and vegetables that would normally go to waste from backyard fruit trees, public orchards, farmers markets and the downtown Los Angeles Wholesale Produce Market. To achieve the orange-chocolate flavor profile in this beer, we use orange zest, vanilla and TCHO cacao nibs. For every bottle we produce, Food Forward receives one dollar.

The Bruery White Chocolate....$23.99 / 750ml
This bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine-style ale made a fanciful trip to the chocolatier and returned with luscious flavors of white chocolate – hence the name. White Chocolate is a rewarding summons to the senses – beginning with its golden appearance and finishing with warming, white chocolate-like flavors. This is accomplished by adding cacao nibs from TCHO and fresh vanilla beans to our bourbon barrel-aged wheatwine-style ale, complimenting the rich notes of coconut, honey, caramel and vanilla from extensive barrel-aging.

The Bruery Melange #3.....$23.99 / 750ml
Mélange #3 is a blend of three bourbon barrel aged strong ales. White Oak Sap, a wheat wine, our Anniversary Series old ale and our imperial Stout, Black Tuesday, join forces in this luxurious strong ale that links some of the best characteristics of each of the contributing beers. Chocolate, dark fruits, oaky vanilla and rich toffee-like character reach through the bourbon veneer for an intensely satisfying quaff.

Schlafly Coconut Cream Ale

Schlafly Coconut Cream Ale...$9.99 / 6pk
Our tropical twist on an American Style wheat ale. Created by fermenting with coconuts and pineapples, then aged on toasted coconut flakes yielding a light=colored dessert beer that’s sweet, smooth and malty.

Firestone Walker Parabola at the growler station


Firestone Walker Parabola Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Oatmeal Stout

Russian Imperial Stout
Parabola is a beer of darkness and immensity, a barrel-­aged beast that is routinely ranked as one of the top beers in the world. This Russian imperial oatmeal stout is aged for a full year in Heaven Hill barrels, developing flavors of rich, chewy roasted malts, charred oak and bourbony vanilla. Parabola bares its teeth with its impenetrable black hue and soaring alcohol, yet its bite remains refined with a silky, balanced finish.

The Perennial Cave Torch IPA keg has blown, we are expecting a fifth keg today - will post when it arrives.

Schlafly AIPA

Schlafly American IPA...$9.99 / 6pk

Our American IPA gets its bold hop flavor from 100% American hops and its deep gold and full body from 2-row and Crystal malted barley. A blend of Amarillo, Centennial and Simcoe hop varietals imparts AIPA with bitterness and prominent aromas of citrus and fruit. Our brewers select these hops on an annual pilgrimage to the hop farms of Pacific Northwest.

IPAs (India Pale Ales) were first brewed in England during the late 1700s for export overseas to British soldiers in India. To keep their beer from spoiling during the long voyage, English brewers fortified their traditional pale ale recipes with natural preservatives: more malted barley, for a higher alcohol content, and more hops. In recent decades, with growing appreciation for highly hopped beers, American craft brewers have revived the style, embraced it, and incorporated new hop varieties. Our Special Release IPAs further those traditions and showcase the distinctions of hops from different hemispheres.
