New Arrivals

Over the last several weeks we have received some great new items. Take a look at the list below. (and be sure to give the Absinthe a try!)


Andersen Valley Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout
Darkness. The deep ebony color, voluptuous mahogany head and bold, roasty flavors in our Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout are what serious beer drinkers expect from this style. Aromas of freshly baked bread, espresso, and dried cherries meld seamlessly with rich toffee flavors and a creamy mouth feel to create an unparalleled drinking experience.

Dales Pale Ale
America’s first hand-canned craft beer is a voluminously hopped mutha that delivers a hoppy nose, assertive-but-balanced flavors of pale malts and hops from start to finish. First canned in 2002, Dale’s Pale Ale is a hearty (6.5% and 65 IBUs), critically acclaimed trailblazer that has changed the way craft beer fiends perceive canned beer.

Shipyard Applehead
Shipyard Applehead is a crisp, refreshing wheat ale with a delightful apple aroma and subtle cinnamon flavor.

Tape Brewing:
Leathlerlips IPA
The brewing process by itself contains enough Nugget and Chinook to satisfy the most seasoned hop head. But they couldn’t leave it alone. Once fermentaion is complete we add a massive hop bag to the bright tank that is bursting at the seams with whole cone Centennial for an aroma that you just can’t get any other way.

Johsua Norton Imperial Stout
You love stouts. Or you love colonial swords and this color scheme. Either way, ours is different. We add just a touch of smoked malt for another layer in an already intensely deep and roasty brew. The name: Joshua Norton was the self-proclaimed emporer of the United States. He was crazy and probably fun to talk to -- like us.

Sassy Rabbit Rye Ale
Our brand new, year-round rye ale. The second we looked at the grain bill and said “That’s enough rye” -- we immediately doubled the amount. A peppery bite from the malt, and plenty of alpha acid from the Chinook and Glacier hops. They all come together into a brew that we’re ecstatic to share with a certain type of people; people who love things that are awesome.

Wychwood Brewery Hobgoblin Ale
Traditionally craft brewed with Chocolate & Crystal malts and a blend of Styrian, Goldings & Fuggles hops to produce a full-bodied, Ruby beer that delivers a delicious chocolate toffee malt flavour, balanced with a rounded moderate bitterness and an overall fruity, mischievous character.

Marston's Pedigree
It has a dry hop aroma with a full range of complex flavours. The melding of nut, fruit and winey flavours create a smooth and very drinkable satisfying whole.

Port Brewing Wipeout IPA
Honey gold, slightly hazy, huge persistent head like a dollop of meringue and loads of lace. Smells of mandarins, tangerines, key limes, honey and toast. Taste is orange citrus, papaya, honey cakes, pine. Creamy mouthfeel with a nice bitter bite and perfect carbonation. Wet and refreshing, clean moderately bitter finish, extremely drinkable and delicious. Very nice.

Bear Republic: 

Big Bear Black Stout
Big Bear is a big, black, stout you can really sink your teeth into. The bold, roasty, caramel malt flavor is balanced by Centennial and Cascade hops.

Racer 5 IPA
This hoppy American IPA is a full bodied beer brewed American pale and crystalmalts, and heavily hopped with Chinook, Cascade, Columbus and Centennial.

Monty Python Holy Grail Ale
Ten years later on the 40th anniversary Holy Grail is still going strong. With more hops than a killer rabbit, it's a full-flavoured golden ale with a distinctively fruity flavour followed by the Black Sheep signature dry finish.

Arrogant Bastard Double Bastard Ale
The taste is HUGE and BOLD. Lots of lemon bitterness thrown against tons of malt. It maintains a great balance. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation. A big beer with still keeps it together.

Rogue Dead Guy Chocolate Stout
Ebony in color with a rich creamy head. The mellow flavor of oats, chocolate malts and real chocolate are balanced perfectly with the right amount of hops for a bitter-sweet finish.

New Planet Gluten Free Raspberry Ale
Its refreshing and crisp ale-like taste, complemented by pureed Oregon raspberries, makes it the perfect summer treat.

Hop Notch IPA
A 7.3 percent beer with an entrancing pale gold color and dense, fluffy head of foam. There’s a massive aroma of peaches and mangoes, with creamy oatmeal maltiness and tangy hop resins. Bitter hops and rich fruit dominate the palate with a strong backbone of clean, juicy malt. The finish has some pleasing malty sweetness but it’s balanced by tart and tangy hop resins and a continuing rich yet mellow fruitiness.

21st Ammendment:

Sneak Attack
The perfect antidote to the big beers of winter, Sneak Attack is crisp, dry and palate cleansing. It pairs perfectly with the rich and warming foods of winter: Bouillabaise, sausages, smoked meats and full flavored cheeses.

Hell or High Watermelon
Hell or High Watermelon Wheat is our summer seasonal beer available from April through September in six pack cans and on draft. We start by brewing a classic American wheat beer, which undergoes a traditional secondary fermentation using fresh watermelon. A straw-colored, refreshing beer with a kiss of watermelon aroma and flavor.

Lindeman's Framboise Lambic
Long before hops were common in most beers, various fruits and vegetables were used to season beers. The acidity of Lambic beers blends perfectly with raspberries. Magnificent aroma, delicate palate of raspberries with undertones of fruity acidity; elegant, sparkling clean natural taste.

Jack's Abby:

Jabby Brau
Deep golden in color, this low ABV lager balances Pilsner and Munich malt with an aromatic American hop aroma. This beer starts hoppy but finishes unexpectedly malty with very low bitterness. Impressively flavorful and drinkable for the lightest beer we brew. We dub this beer a "Session Lager," as we once again brew a lager in a beer style of its own. Uses local Soft Red Winter Wheat from Four Star Farms.

Smoke & Dagger
Cloaked in mystery, this dark black beer skirts the line between a schwarzbier and smoked porter. The use of a small percentage of traditional Beechwood smoked malt adds complexity and balances the liberal use of chocolate malt. Notes of roasted grains, beechwood smoke, and coffee accompany a full bodied-and sweet chocolately malt character. Smoke & Dagger uses locally grown unmalted barley from MA.


Lucid Absinthe
Lucid is the first genuine absinthe made with real Grande Wormwood to be legally available in the US in over 95 years. Lucid is made with full measure of Grande Wormwood as well as other fine European herbs. Recommended!

Karlsson's Gold Vodka
Karlsson’s Gold Vodka is a blend of several different varietals of Virgin New Potatoes from Cape Bj√§re, Sweden. It is handcrafted, single-distilled and unfiltered to preserve the flavor and character of this rare and expensive raw ingredient.

Midnight Moon Moonshine
The Midnight Moon fruit inclusions are hand-packed in traditional moonshine jars with real, honest-to-goodness fruit. No artificial colors or flavors. Just as moonshiners have done for generations, the real fruit ages in the jar, and all of the delicious flavor comes from the fruit itself – just as nature (and moonshiners) intended. Our all natural, real fruit inclusions are available in the following flavors: Apple Pie, Blackberry, Blueberry, Cherry, Cranberry & Strawberry.


Vampire Merlot
Picked at peak ripeness, our Merlot is fermented on the skins for two weeks, with three-times-daily pumpovers, the traditional method of extraction which brings rich color and supple tannins to the new wine. Aged with a combination of both French and American oak, our Merlot develops graceful fruit flavors in the cellar, complemented by subtle shadings of vanilla and toast from the oak.

Big Woop Red
A blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Petit Verdot packaged in a 1-Liter bottle. Just slip into layers of smooth, palate pleasing, medium bodied, fruit of the vine.

Red Newt Riesling
Peach, apricot, mango and pineapple fill the palate and linger throughout. Structured and balanced acidity with a mouthwatering finish.

Sharpe Hill Ballet of Angels
A light and refreshing semi-dry white wine with a delicious floral bouquet. This wine has wonderful refreshing citrus flavors reminiscent of peaches, pears and sweet grapefruit.

Tolosa "1772" Pinot Noir
This wine has the classic medium density ruby red hue of Pinot Noir. The fruit aromas are ripe to jammy strawberries. There are some violet notes as well as wet earth. The deeper layers are of spice, briar and baking bread. The flavors on the palate are fruity and toasty with blackberry dominating. The structure of flavor is still youthfully awkward and tense. There is a pleasant dryness and cinnamon like character to the finish.

Dreaming Tree Crush
A blend of the North Coast's finest varieties, this wine pulls you in with a smoky berry note and then jumps up with a raspberry jam.

Terra Noble Gran Reserva Cabernet
Vintages Wine Panel: Colchagua Valley is quickly developing a reputation for producing full-flavoured, well-balanced red wines, such as this Cabernet Sauvignon. Try this bold beauty. My note: A phenomenal wine for the money! Dark fruit and savoury, meaty flavours. Smooth and deeply, truly, madly delicious. Food matches: barbecued steaks, ribs.

If You See Kay (an Italian red wine)
Kay smells amazing; she’s soft, creamy, juicy, rich, and powerful all at the same time. A dark and brooding wine, hints of imminent danger, ripe with confidence and purpose; on a mission. She’s more than a mouthful, but never wasteful – like handfuls of juicy ripe blackberries dripping from your hands, so perfectly ripe that you have to go back again and again for another taste.

Adesso Cagnina Dolce
Adesso Cagnina di Romagna is soft garnet in color. It is medium in body with a pleasant nose of red berries and flavors of black raspberries, cherries and spice. It is nicely balanced to enjoy now and over the next 3-4 years. This wine is long and silky smooth on the finish and easy to love.

Mosca Mango Moscato
An innovative blend of Moscato with mango fruit pulp from Italy. Refreshing, bubbly and delicious; Perfect for desserts, fruit drinks or by themselves, Mosca wines are made with high quality ingredients and are ideal for any occasion; Shake gently before serving

90+ Cellars
90+ Cellars was created because we like drinking great wine anytime we want. We wanted an everyday “go to” wine that tasted like one usually reserved for special occasions, a delicious wine that we could open any night of the week or whenever friends arrived. Unfortunately, that wine didn’t exist or just took too much time to find.

If there's a craft beer or wine you'd like us to purchase for you, let us know by emailing us at gilbertswineandspirits@gmail.com. Cheers!
