Melvin Brewing Cosmic Sherpa IPA...$14.99 / 4pk 16 oz cans
We ferment this Hazy/Juicy West Coast IPA with neutral ale yeast to achieve a beer which allows hop expressions to shine bright and guide you straight to hop nirvana with no distortion from esters like NEIPAs do. We've left out the crystal malts so don't expect the sweeter resinous profile like many other OG West Coast IPAs and loaded this batch up with a generous dose of oats and raw wheat. We also adjusted our water profile slightly to partially emulate characteristics we appreciate NEIPAs lending to hop forward beers. Think east meets west... Strata, Motueka, and Mosaic Incognito lend over the top notes of stone fruits, strawberries, tropical fruits, and fresh cut grass.

The Original Schlenkerla Lentbeer is an unfiltered smokebeer, brewed according to the Bavarian Purity Law of 1516. Bottom-fermenting yeast gives the reddish brown lentbeer a natural cloudiness. Its smokey aroma is already noticeable in the smell, combined with a fine hoppy note. In the drink the fullbodied, highly drinkable lentbeer shows its strong malty flavour, rounded up with the smokey taste and a light bitterness. Due to the nourishing yeast, the Original Schlenkerla Lentbeer has the "Brotzeit already included" (German word for afternoon snack).
Different from the Original Schlenkerla Smokebeer, the Schlenkerla Lentbeer is made from a mixture of light (e.g. non smoked) malt and Schlenkerla Smoked Malt. It is brewed in classic copper kettles in a two-decoction mash with hops from Spalt (near Nuremberg) and Hallertau. One week of primary fermentation is being followed by a two month period of lagering in the ancient cellars underneath Bamberg. The lentbeer is being served unfiltered with fine bottom fermenting yeast from the keg and thus preserves its full body and aroma.

Perennial Artisan Ales People Power IPA....$12.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
IPA with Cryo Amarillo, Cryo Simcoe, Cryo Idaho 7, and Centennial. 6.2% ABV.
Brewed to support ACLU in their mission to protect civil liberties for all Americans, People Power is a nationwide collab that celebrates the unique privilege of self-determination we strive to protect for all Americans. This election had record turnout, which is a fact worth celebrating regardless of politics.
Most of the dozens of other versions of People Power (led by our friends @threesbrewing and @peoplepowerbeer) were released before Election Day. We had planned to release this beer two weeks ago, but instead we watched with shock and horror as the US Capitol was stormed by a violent mob of homegrown terrorists. Democracy is not always a straightforward or elegant affair, but that was absolutely beyond the pale. Clearly we have a lot of healing and growth to do as a nation. We are proud to be an open and affirming brewery, and will continue our work in 2021 and beyond. As John Lewis noted (see can-bottom), “we must be our own legacy.”
Papaya-mandarin fusion peacefully yields to a crush of pineapple, lychee, and guava. Throngs of tropical flavor constituents exercise their vote on your taste buds. The impressions they cast are as diverse and wonderful as the electorate. They meld together to form the very fabric of democracy. We lift our cans alongside their harmonious voices and celebrate the power of the people to determine the future course of their ever more juicy union.

Righteous Road The Fifth Cup Liqueur....$29.99
An original blend of apricots, figs, dates, pistachios & almonds to delight your palate.
Indulge and enjoy neat, mixed, or on the rocks.
It is well known that four cups of wine are drunk on the first night of Passover. But little is understood about the fifth cup. In the vast expanse of the Babylonian Talmud, the fifth cup is mentioned just once, giving credence to the assumption by some that it must have been an error. In most printed versions of the Talmud today the ‘fifth cup’ has been removed.
Throughout history though, many Torah luminaries have argued that the ‘fifth cup’ text should remain. In the 16th century, the famous Maharal of Prague urged that the unabridged version of the text be followed: “…over the fourth cup one completes the Hallel. Over the fifth cup one recites the psalm known as the Great Hallel.”
He writes that Hallel (Psalms 113-118) and the four cups of wine at the Seder are related to redemption. The Great Hallel (Psalm 136), however, is one step above redemption and associates with the number five, for it states that the Lord provides every single creature with food. The Talmud aptly expounds that providing “the sustenance of an individual is even more difficult than redemption.”
As such, the fifth cup has its rightful place at the Passover seder. It serves as a testament to the Almighty who not only redeems, but also provides sustenance directly and not through an intermediary. The Fifth Cup™ liqueur was developed to acknowledge this wonder.
Our cup sits inside a five petaled rose depicting the description in the opening lines of the Zohar. “And there are five strong petals on which the rose is set and they are called salvations and now they are known as the five gates. And this rose is called the cup of blessing, of which it is said, ‘I will take up the cup of salvation…’ ” (Psalm 116:13).
The Fifth Cup™ liqueur is hand-crafted with the finest figs, apricots, dates, almonds and pistachios to create a taste reminiscent of renewal and springtime. It is meant to be enjoyed during Passover and the rest of the year as gratitude to the Almighty, who sustains us each day.
