Beer

New arrival: Dogfish Head Fruit-Full Fort

IMG_7124.PNG

This Allocated Beer is now available for sale at Hot Spot Liquor.

A complex ale brewed with a boatload of berries.

A twist on our beloved Fort, Fruit-Full Fort is brewed with four types of berries - Raspberry, Blackberry, Boysenberry and Elderberry! This juicy blend of dark berries creates depth and complexity reminiscent of a jammy red wine.

Along with adding a boatload of more berries this time around, we also punched up the malt bill with Munich malt to provide a firm backbone. The result provides balance to the tart flavors of a very berry blend.

Dark maroon in color, Fruit-Full Fort is swirling with notes of velvety cherry and berry sweetness for a full-bodied - and full-flavor - experience!

Flesh & Blood IPA

An honest to goodness India Pale Ale brewed with a bevy of real citrus

ABV: 7.5

IBU: 45

RELEASE: February - December

ORIGINAL RELEASE DATE: 2016

STYLE:

India Pale Ale Made with sweet apricots, Aprihop blazed the trail as one of the first fruit-infused IPAs.. Crafting delicious beer doesn’t start with ingredients. It starts with exploration. Back in the 90s, our constant need to experiment with culinary ingredients was considered heresy by some. But it was the passion and the constant trial and error that led to pure alchemy, and we began brewing with real fruit pulled from our brewpub kitchen

That ongoing journey continues today with Flesh & Blood IPA. We could save time and money by brewing with fruit extracts. But for us, authenticity counts.And when we say we brew with real fruit, we mean it.

“One of the first to experiment with fruit-infused IPAs… the result of 20 years of delicious R&D.” -Food & Wine

Brewed with mouth-puckering lemon flesh, sweet orange peel and blood orange juice, Flesh & Blood balances the resinous hoppy characteristics of an American IPA with the explosive zesty fruitiness and subtle drying tartness of citrus to deliver a highly quaffable ale that’s incredibly unique and lovely to down the whole year round.

New arrival: Goose Island's Limited Release Cooper Project No.1

$5.99 12oz Bottles

$5.99 12oz Bottles

Available for Sale Monday May 8th.  

 Goose Island’s Cooper Project is a new rotating series of bourbon barrel-aged beers. Its first release is Scotch Ale and it does a great job of highlighting caramel, toffee and roast flavors.

It uses three types of pale malt, roasted barley and three types of crystal malt, including one variety called Simpson Crystal Rye. For those not familiar with the Scotch or Scottish style, it highlights malt, but does not have the intense burnt coffee-type roast you would find in a stout, and to a lesser extent, porter.

The Cooper Scotch Ale poured a dark brown color with red highlights and a half-inch frothy head, and the caramel malts were immediately evident in the aroma, along with a slight chocolate background.

The aroma was mirrored in the flavor — caramel and background chocolate, but also with toffee notes. There was a pleasant slight tang in the aftertaste — not citrusy, but a character often found from the use and manipulation of certain malts. In this case, it may be because of the caramel rye malt.

The beer had a rich mouthfeel without being cloying, and like many beers of this style, was medium sweet. It had a somewhat dry finish that prevented the sweetness from lingering, however.

The sweetness was not overpowering, such as McEwan’s Scotch Ale from Scotland, which is one of the sweetest beers in the world — I try one every couple years and the sugars are just too overpowering. Not so with the Goose Island version.

I liked the 8.7% ABV of the beer — enough to provide a warm glow, but no unpleasant alcohol flavor.

5.2% Alc 4pk Bottles

This dark golden coloured ale hugs the palate with great intensity. Its malty aroma is complemented by the gentle nose of Banana. Its flavour unfolds with a sensual sparkle and a smart crispness, which balances its aroma perfectly. Tropically fruity; its ripe banana flavour, emphasised by a hint of bitterness, comes from the addition of real fair trade bananas and finishes with an emphatic, steely dryness.
