Top rated beers...

BrewDog Paradox Glen Grant 1970 Cask...$10.99
Batch 003
Rated 95 percentile on
A new BrewDog Paradox has arrived, I think it is their highest rated one.
"We set about to unite two of Scotland proudest heritages and produce a product which combined all that was good about Scotland’s whisky producing history and our contemporary take on a traditional Scottish style of stout. The fact that we have developed this product in conjunction with Duncan Taylor Ltd of Huntly means we mature our beer in the casks that once housed some of the most prestigious whiskies available today. The distinct flavours of these whiskies is beautifully infused into the beer giving a unique and unrivalled experience for both beer and whisky lovers. Paradox is produced in very small batches and each batch is bottled in a unique numbered limited edition bottle." -- Brewery

Rochefort Trappist 10...$6.19 / 11oz
2008 Beer Advocate's
#1 beer of the year !!!

Rated 100 percentile on
"The top product from the Rochefort Trappist brewery. Dark color, full and very impressive taste. Strong plum, raisin, and black currant palate, with ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities."

St. Bernardus Abt 12 Quad...$4.69 / 11oz
St. Bernardus Abt 12 Quad...$11.99 / 25oz
2008 Beer Advocate's #3 beer of the year

"The absolute top quality in the hierarchy of the St. Bernardus beers. It is also the beer with the highest alcohol content (10.50 %). A dark ivory coloured beer with a high fermentation. The show piece of the brewery. Thanks to its soft and unconditionally genuine aroma, the beer can be smoothly tasted. The Abt has a very fruity flavour." - brewery

"Water, pumped up from a depth of 150 meter is the basis of all St. Bernardus beers. This water is not only the purest but has also a historical background. Scientists have proved that the water that is pumped up now, is originating from rainfall from the time of Jeanne d’Arc.The water seeped to Watou through a pervious stratum of sand from the St. Omer area in France.After brewing, the beer is maturing in a natural way and subsequently bottled unfiltered. By adding sugar and yeast, the beer gets a second fermentation in the bottle,carbonating the beer in a natural way. This gives the beer a beautiful and large froth." -- brewery

Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier...$9.99 / 6pk
2008 Beer Advocate's #8 beer of the year is the classic German wheat beer.
Rate "A" outstanding with 947 Reviews
"Nothing refreshes you more than this naturally cloudy wheat beer with its wonderful yeasty fragrance and taste. Goes well with dishes that do not have too intensive a flavour, especially that Bavarian speciality 'Weisswurst' or white sausage. " -- brewery
