    imperial stout | 10.5% ABV

    Chocolate mousse, marshmallow creme, and rich, dark malts meld with bright notes of raspberry and a undercurrent of blueberry jam from this year’s coffee addition. A long, slow extraction using a Kyoto drip method accentuates the vivacious fruits, sugary body, and floral character of this phenomenal small batch lot without over extracting acidity.

    dogfish head bats & Homemade tats

    Barrel-aged sour with hibiscus and currants | 6.4% ABV

    Brewed from a blend of locally-grown and malted Violetta barley, spelt and einkorn, Knuckles, Bats & Homemade Tats was open-fermented with a mixed yeast and bacterial cultures from both The Veil and Dogfish Head. The beer was then transferred to French oak chardonnay barrels, where it aged for 18 months on extravagant quantities of hibiscus, and red, white and blue currants. Bottle-conditioned for a bright and effervescent carbonation, Knuckles, Bats & Homemade Tats is chock full of tart, funky notes of cranberry, cherry, raspberry, watermelon and hibiscus.

    Available in 375mL bottles

    The Bruery wee so heavy

    e455e18e

    Scotch-style wee heavy ale | 13% ABV

    Wee know a few things about Wee Heavy ales, and this February, we're introducing a new favorite in collaboration with our friends at @copperandkings. While we love their Apple Brandy barrels, which we've used in previous releases like Apfelsap, we had a chance this time to play with their standard Brandy barrels used to age our Wee Heavy ale for about two years. Wee So Heavy is full-bodied, malt-forward on the nose lending perfectly to highlight the nuanced notes of brandy and flavors of caramel, toffee, and oak from these special Copper and Kings Brandy barrels.

    Available in pints

    pontoon rainbow smiggles

    rainbow-smiggles_orig

    Berliner Weisse | 5.2% ABV

    Rainbow Smiggles Berliner Weisse is a bold take on Pontoon Brewing’s classic sour recipe featuring Skittles, Trix Cereal, strawberries, pineapple, vanilla and lactose. The Skittles and Trix are brought to light with addition of strawberries to give it a fresh fruity taste as well as pineapples to brighten it with some acidity. The two fruits together give a striking similarity to the taste of skittles which further enhances the flavors. Not to mention, fans of the cartoon Rick and Morty will enjoy the label art Pontoon created for this beer!

    Available in 12oz cans

    dogfish head vibrant p'ocean

    vibrant-pocean-cans-5%20%281%29_crop

    sour | 4.7% ABV

    Inspired by the ocean that connects us, Vibrant P’Ocean is a complex, ruby-colored ale with tart, dry flavors of jammy berries and floral lemon. To create this trans-oceanic potion, we carefully combined two unique base beers – one developed by Rodenbach and the other by our brewers here in Milton.

    Rodenbach’s portion – a two-year, foeder-aged sour from its legendary, standing oak casks – was brewed in Belgium before making its 3,400-mile (or 1,000-nautical league) voyage to Delaware.

    From there, it was blended with our portion – a kettle sour brewed with pilsner malt, malted wheat, elderberry, elderflower, sliced lemons and Belgian fleur-de-sel.

    stone brewing viking space probe

    unnamed-69

    double ipa| 8.5% ABV

     The 8.5% ABV beer boldly goes where no hazy brew has gone before with an unchartered combination of hops and Belgian Candi Sugar that earns it a spot among the ranks of Stone’s genre-defying creations. Stone Viking Space Probe Double IPA is dark gold with a subtle haze like that of a far-off nebula. Pineapple, peach, lychee, watermelon, papaya and even marshmallow can be found in the aroma. Ella and Citra hops impart flavors of tropical fruit, notably pineapple, peach, papaya and sweet guava, along with a hint of lime zest. It’s creamy and smooth with warmth on the finish.

    pipeworks select Schwarzbier

    dark lager | 6.3% ABV

    Select Schwarzbier is back by popular demand! We've dubbed it "select" after the careful malt selection process that went into this beer! This lager spends weeks and weeks in tanks until it's clean and a perfect showcase for the dark chocolate and coffee notes from the malts. The roasted malts are beautifully balanced with the delicate lager yeast character. Somehow this beer is refreshing and cozy all at once.

    Available in 16oz 4 pack cans
