|Safe Harbor IPA |
$10.29 . . . 6pbtl
Beautiful pale gold/copper in color - with a slightly bold hopy bitterness that predominates over medium, clean malt levels, making this a no-apologies American beer. This has roughly twice the hops of other beer and a spicy, refreshing bitterness.
Anchor Brotherhood Steam
$12.99 . . . 6pcan
A distinct malt bill gives the beer its copper color, and dry-hopping with Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops adds aromatic hints of citrus and mint. The result is a smooth, full-bodied malt flavor with a lingering, fresh hop finish.
|Allagash Victoria Ales ‘15|
$16.99 . . . 750ml
The brewer's decided to fuse the worlds of beer and wine. Over two hundred pounds of Chardonnay (Vidal Blanc in 2010) grapes were brought in, crushed on site and added directly to the mash. Victoria Ale's aroma is fruity spice, and the taste presents subtle notes of green banana, black pepper, and fresh-crushed mint. With a focus on the subtle, wine-like character of the grapes, the 9.0% ABV brew boasts a pale copper color, Belgian yeast influence, and a medium body with a long candied fruit finish with hints of honeydew melon, and, of course, white wine grapes.

Harry's New favorite
Principe de los Apotoles Gin
$31.99 . . . 750ml
Although most of the botanicals used to make the Principe De Los Apostoles Mate Gin come from Misiones, Argentina, the gin itself is made in Mendoza. The botanicals include peppermint, eucalyptus, pink grapefruit skin and yerba mate, which is used to make a popular drink in South America and captures the spirit of Argentina rather well indeed. One of the first premium gins from Argentina!
