New Beers on Tap

We just put a bunch of new beers on tap this morning that I wanted to make you all aware of. You can always check what we are serving on the right sidebar of this blog but I wanted to highlight some new and exciting beers:

Brouwerij Verhaeghe - Duchesse de Bourgogone: A Flemmish red ale from Belgium. This beer replaces Deschutes' The Dissident on our sour beer handle. Tart green apple and stone fruit mix with sourness and barrel aged character. Throw in some lactic twang for a very complex sour ale.

Bear Republic - Double Rocket: This 9% beer is an Imperial Red Ale, much like our fall seasonal Smokey's Imperial Red. It is the Red Rocket recipe but with double the malt and hops! Very fruity with a deep pine like hop character.

Nectar Ales - Nectar IPA: A fantastic IPA, we had a cask of this beer on last week but this is the normal draft version. More floral and fruity than the big citrus bombs we are used to on the west coast. Balanced and delicious.

Sacramento Brewing Company - Nut Brown Ale: A new house brewed ale, this brown ale had a big chocolate and malt component with just enough hops to balance. We aren't all about hops here! (just mostly).

Come in and try some of these new great beers. Also coming later this month will be Russian River's Pliny the Elder, Bear Republic's Crazy Ivan, and Firestone's Velvet Merkin. Keep an eye on the blog to see when we change out kegs.
