New Beers This Week

Celebration from Sierra is toast and we killed the last keg of ESB from Bear Republic. But never fear, here is the list of new beers this week:

ON NOW (2/23)
Sacramento Brewing Company - Abbey IPA
This is our "Belgian IPA" or West Coast IPA fermented with Belgian Ale yeast. Interesting spicy Belgian yeast notes merge with citrusy notes from Simcoe, Columbus and Amarillo hops.

Sudwerk (Davis, CA) - Hefeweizen
Just across the causeway is a great German brewery. Their hefeweizen is a true bavarian style hefe with clove and banana notes and a hazy golden color.

Russian River Brewing (Santa Rosa, CA) - Pliny the Elder
Pliny returns, the classic double ipa with big fresh hop aroma and crisp bitter finish.

Valley Brew (Stockton, CA) - London Tavern Ale **ON CASK**
We got a cask of this great English session ale, low alcohol and big flavor makes for a beer you can drink all night an enjoy every pint. Special session beer pricing as well, $4.00 pints and $3.00 half pints.

In preparation for our Deschutes pint night and tasting we are getting our fingers into the kegs just a touch early.

Mirror Pond
Black Butte Porter
Buzzsaw Brown Ale
Hop Trip Fresh Hop Ale
Hop Henge Imperial IPA
The Dissident

Due to limited supply of The Dissident it will only be available as part of the Deschutes sample set.
